    I think they were specifically targeting you.

    I'm not sure I care much for the change and suspect something else is going on in the Holy of Holies. But whatever.

    If there is some reason other than what has been stated, I am not aware of it.

    I lvoe the new board name. Anything that pisses off Portland Ute and LAUte is a positive change.

    I love all the whining about a board name like somehow this will drastically change lives.

    Not surprised about the bitching it seems the majority on here are not happy unless they have something to complain about. This just adds fuel to the fire, maybe it will take the heat off JS for awhile. Lebowski is doing a good thing for the church.

    I'm guessing that the real reason for the change is that Ford is resurrecting the old Mercury Cougar name, but for an all-new Ford Ranchero. They want to market the new vehicle down under by using an Australia-centric message board for their new ute, and paid big dollars for the domain name.

    I am really surprised about this. I guess I don't see the need for a name change. I like the Ute fans on here.

    Is there a domain name that keeps all the Utes around except for LA Ute? If so, then I'm on board.
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    I'm upset that I wasn't consulted, I bought the name rights to thenakedindian.com years ago. Instead, when the site changes names Duderino just goes with the other DDD suggestion.

    I would have given the rights over.

    Time to fix the thingy in the browser that still has 1/2 Y and 1/2 U.

    I'm nothing more than a lurker, but I don't really like the change. Hell, I don't really like the change in the rivalry either.

    I will try to weigh in more later. I have blown most of my morning already with the technical issues associated with the change and I have some urgent issues at work.

    Let me just say that I understand that change can be disruptive and I understand why some are disappointed. But let's keep in mind that the only thing that has changed at this point is a URL and a banner image.

    I don't care what it's called, but if the purpose of the forum changes, then that's something else.

    I'm just surprised and disappointed. If that makes you happy, great. Welcome back to activity, brother!

    I agree completely.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I don't think that anyone is going to drop off the site on the basis of this change. However, it is going to be harder to recruit new Ute fans to the site because they are going to see it as just another BYU fan site. If JL wants to over time transition this to a BYU site that is fine, it is his site and he has every right. However, I'm definitely disappointed in this move. It won't change the site now, but it will over time.
