    And the award for the most bot-ty username chosen by the friends of BYUMizzou who followed him over here after his death penalty goes to......

    I have a pretty good handle on what this site is all about. I'm pretty far to the right of a big chunk of regular users here. That's ok. The nice thing here is if I think someone is a prick, I can say that, get if off my chest, then move on. They'll probably tell me I'm a prick back. We'll both be right. We'll both probably realize it and maybe try not to be as big a prick in the future. It's something that seems to work well here, as evidenced by the cohabitation (at least before the site name change) of UTah and BYU fans.

    Remember when you were a kid...and left the front door open...and your parents yelled at you?

    Who the hell left the front door open.

    Please start in the religion section. Start reading some crazy shit. It's good for you.

    Lifetime ban over threatening a lawsuit? That’s nothing. I got a lifetime ban for posting evidence that Jesus likely never sweat blood.

    I didn't even get to formally threaten to file a lawsuit. All I got to do was post a [supposedly] private message to my friends [which obviously included a Judas] about possibly threatening a lawsuit that might return $1 in damages. That was apparently threatening enough to get my account nuked.

    Lots of pricks around here. You'll be good. I also forget that sarcasm does not often translate well when written.

    You also threatened punitives based on CB's annual (I think) revenue. So, a little more than just nominal damages.

    Only if I didn't get access to my old posts, which apparently was a 2 minute coding fix.

    Here is what I don't understand about all the CB castoffs: They come over here, say, "Hmm, nice little board", maybe whine about the format a bit (which always cracks me up because VBulletin is probably the single most popular board forum on the planet whereas CB is completely unique and proprietary), whine about Jefe and how he runs CB, then never come back.

    I don't get it. If they really don't like how Jefe runs his board, why do they keep crawling back time after time to lick his jackboots?

    I do understand the complaint about low traffic on this board. The problem is that a large percentage of the board's content is unavailable to newcomers. The hidden content is very much a double-edge sword because it gives the impression to newcomers that this board is less active than it is, but it's also nice to have a (mostly) weirdo-free and lurker-free area to post. The hidden content is both this board's blessing and curse.

    Dude, I don't think you're supposed to talk about that stuff on the open board.

    If you want newcomers to stay, bit they can't see the 'good' stuff, maybe you need to give us the secret password sooner or something.

    I'm hardly a newcomer. I'm a sporadic poster to be sure, but I don't have a clue what you're talking about.

    I don't believe the existence of the hidden content is a secret - only the content of the hidden content...

    Newcomers generally get the secret password once they prove they aren't complete douchenozzles and have something to contribute to the board.

    Like I said, it's both a blessing (preventing trashy neighbors from walking in your front door, sitting in their underwear on your couch, and getting greasy potato chip crumbs all over your hardwood floors) and a curse (your long-lost friend who happened to be in town and drove by your house might think nobody is home because the upstairs lights are off while you're down in the rec room with your other buddies watching the game and shooting pool).

    Life is full of tradeoffs...
