    Default Welcome TheMat Forums Refugees

    Though I do my absolute best to avoid the "other site" it seems like all heck has broken loose over the last couple days. Many established members have said they aren't going back, so I figure this would be a good place for recently spurned members of TheMat to post and say hello.

    Mods - if this isn't appropriate for the college board or I missed a previous attempt feel free to move or delete. I figure this is the first board most refugees would check out so it would be the easiest to find. Hopefully it'll entice some ex-TheMatters to sign up.

    seems we have had several "Give us your poor, your tired, your huddled masses longing to be free..." threads pop up on occasions of mass exodus, but our old search tool seems to have vanished so I have a hard time finding old threads

    Yeah.. it gets hit by a lot of spammers and really bogs down the site, plus I think the google search is just as accurate (available on the front page, everywhere shortly)... might not be though.

    Welcome refugees!

    Disagree!! I used the old search a lot where you could select multiple criteria, like who started the thread, etc.

    So Sesker's a great guy who is loved by children and small animals. And he's overworked, underpaid and trying to do a good job. That still doesn't excuse the way that forum is run. If you can't treat people with the respect that they deserve and police your forum properly, shut the thing down. Don't treat people like crap and make your whole organization look like amateurs (oh, that's right, they are amateurs).

    Thank Craig Sesker for people losing interest over there. He's the one that led the charge at getting everything deleted and many longtime posters banned.

    I am truly ashamed that they represent the national governing body of United States wrestling. They won't even allow a discussion of "the push." Re-freakin-diculous!

    Not really considering he is the one giving the okay to delete posts and ban people. Heard it from USAW staff myself.
