Thread: TheMat.com eliminates NWT board...

    I have read the phrase "you are better than that Steve" a couple of times. Some could get offended. How I reacted was my responsibility. It's the Pygmalian effect. I assumed we could work to a meeting of the minds. I EXPECTED to. And we did.

    That aside, most posters are well intentioned. We all cross over lines at some point. You let it slide.

    The other class of posters, a few, arrive at message boards with malice in their hearts (if any). There moderation (ie-moderator) is necessary.

    One thing they do on other boards - for posters who are incapable of controlling themselves - is have them on moderated status. Basically their posts do not get released until they have been checked. After they have proven they can follow the rules then they get off of moderated status. It works really well and you might be amazed to know that I am NOT on moderated status!

    Is there an official immigration thread? I'm wondering how many people have come over.

    So far, it looks like you and usnlt7676 signed up. Others have been lurking with 220+ guests on the link this AM. Still others like dumdum are here on an another alias.

    I assume every poster here started out as a poster there first.

    That place is crap. A terribly outdated forum with loads of immature scumbags. Moderators who delete playful stuff and allow crass to hang around. If you mention this place, your post or the entire thread gets deleted.

    The only thing they have over this place is the ability to constantly draw new fans who found it by going to themat.com for news on wrestling.

    Interesting. I wonder what the atmosphere is like here I noticed when registering that it appeared to be geared toward the high school crowd...

    We've gotten a lot of high school kids on here since the season started, but we have plenty of posters of all ages and levels of experience.
