    I hate to beat a dead horse, but the board just seems more ‘dead’ since the purge. We all lost some great posters and good friends here. Guys that can’t be replaced. I don’t carry much weight here, but is there anyone... ANYONE that has the power to do anything to get these guys back? It just doesn’t feel right to sit back and let this happen and look the other way.

    I mean ... it's pretty easy to recover from a ban if you really want to come back. Obviously some people don't want to.

    Whether they feel slighted or don't want to "start over" ... it's their choice.

    Hoops had to ban 5 entire ip ranges in order to keep me "silent". Of course, the reality was that I could have just kept coming back.

    From the looks of it, quite a few who got turfed last week have no intention of fighting the ban as they have no interest in returning. I may be one of the few if not the only one who was able to appeal mine and be welcomed back in.

    I do like the Hoop and their array of boards, but this is still home as it were. I'm still hopeful that the rest who do want to return are able to.

    I wasn’t banned, but this place is a ghost town. More variety on the other site.

    From what I’ve seen there’s no off topic threads. They go in toilet thread together or something, is that right? I enjoy the off topic stuff here more than the football threads, always have.

    Glad they changed course. This place is like Publix. Well lit, fresh content.

    Hoop is like Piggly Wiggly. Dim, sketchy, and your pretty sure someone pissed on the Produce.

    They do have an off topic thread. Takes a bit getting used to where everything is. Toilet is just for the repeat threads etc.

    Some have said on other sites that they have no intention of coming back and that they like the other site. Some have posted that they appreciate the freedom at the other place.

    I already tried to do something last week and imo it's over. If you want to reconnect with them, they are on the other site A LOT.

    A lot of leeway to curse, which as a Marine I greatly appreciate.

    Honestly can't remember how things run there. I only posted there as a refugee, ironically the same time many Rivals posters came over when the Rivals board went down too.

    Almost everyone was pretty decent. My beef was with one of the staff who had an unearned ego and went on a power trip. He baby raged when I questioned his statement and proved him wrong. Several ban "attempts" later I just decided to move along ...

    Being able to say the f-word seemed to be a big selling point to some. Winking But 'porn', the word, is blocked.

    Hrmmm ... interesting. My current IP block is no longer IP banned.

    Wonder if they unblocked all those IP ranges because of a potential influx of new members from the rapture.

    I still talk with a few of them. And I’m sure we will continue to be friends and hang out. It’s just more fun on here BS’ing with your friends and people you actually know outside of the board. I know you tried already and your thread was deleted for some reason even though it was respectful. That kinda killed my hope but I thought I’d try again

    Yeah and I can’t help but think if things were allowed to play out with some patience a lot of wouldn’t have happened but that’s just conjecture because I certainly wasn’t in the loop enough to know all the facts

    There is a reason I did not make use of the account I created over there a few years ago. IMO, It feels closer to tMB than Soundoff. Lot's of shit flying a lot of the time. Of course, our friends are over the giving it too. I would like a lot of the posters to come back but I'm sure they are settling down over there. I do not blame many of them for not wanting to come back. Some were wronged. I have no sympathy for the guilty though. They knew what they were doing.

    We’re trying to not use that analogy anymore, it’s insensitive to animals.
    Try “don’t feed a fed horse” instead.

    Together we can make a difference Winking

    Love the trolls with both accounts going back and forth starting drama. Laughing Get a life....whatever board you are on stay there and do your thang(posting porn is allowed so some of you will love it there ) Dont be pissed you are not at Rivals anymore(10 years down the drain), just move on and be cool at your new place. Damn.Eyeroll


    If that board is so great why are they so obsessed with whats going on here?

    Its all good banned fellas checking in....im still jacked AF since you left, God bless.
