    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

    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!

    Never even really been to the other site. I came here first and no one has given any reason to leave.

    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!

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

    Ah yes, it's all Craig. The guy has a job to do, not babysit and moderate idiots on a forum. I've had posts gobbled up by deleted threads too, and I've disagreed with columns before, but I'm not crying about it.

    The problem with the board isn't with USAW, it's those who have made it the cesspool. How can any one person moderate thousands of posts per day and still be productive in the job their primarily paid to do?

    Quit making it personal. Craig's a helluva guy who has done great things for the sport of wrestling. He's the scapegoat for idiots being banned on the forums.
