I've quit posting on the old board, but still look in from time to time. Still seems like the hot topic over there (and there sure aren't many of them) is the great defection.

For entertainment value only, you should read the latest post of one of my favorite narcissistic gasbags, Roger Garrett. To summarize, he rips all of us for coming over here, totally tees off on JOhn(?), knocks the new board, relishes in taking credit for driving us away, and has the unmitigated gaul to complain about someone else putting up too many posts!

Certainly not Blazing Saddles, but it made me chuckle. Glad I broke away.

Yeah, that whole thing is a trip. I especially like the guilt trip that is being laid on the Benedict Arnolds by a couple of them. Like we did anything wrong.... I still drop in at the old place but probably not much longer. I just want to catch any of the regulars that haven't been around in the past week or so. I would want to miss any of my buds!!!

The old board will heat up again after the next Chiefs game. And it will liven up even more when the regular season starts. There are plenty of people in cyberspace to run two Chiefs boards. People are happy with the decisions they've made. Its all good....

The thing I like best about this board is that most of the people I like to talk to (with a few exceptions) migrated over here. Conversely, most of the people who annoy me DIDN'T. No "I hate Carl" threads from Ken or "You're all hillbilly racists" threads from Keck or "If I don't create a new post every ten seconds I'll die" threads from Garrett and Tony Gonzalez over here (knock on wood).

I sure hope this board continues to flourish, moron-free.

Well, bedtime for Frazod. Talk to you all later.

Can't we all just get along? LOL. The old board is doing fine and so is this one. I have enough time to browse both and enjoy it. I like how new people who used to just "lurk" over there are starting to feel more comfortable and post. The same seems to be happening here.

I told them that:

"We're offering 150 e-dollars (which can be spent anywhere on ChiefsPlanet.com) to old kc.com subscribers if you sign up and achieve "regular" status before Midnight, Aug 25th."

I wonder if there is anybody left on either board that takes anything I post seriously....

I think one thing we'll discover is that there are are enough Chiefs fans in cyberspace to support 2 BB's.

I too, have been watching the Star BB (though I haven't posted there lately) and right now it's a little dead, but, as AZ was saying, the long-time lurkers are coming out of the woodwork to post and that'll be a good thing.

BTW, I have nothing against anyone over 'there' personally. I simply perfer this format over the Star.

I guess when regular season starts, all the minor skirmishes and sniping will stop and both boards will be filled w/ FOOTBALL topics.

AZ,

I am one of those that enjoys posting here a lot more than the old board, where I used to just lurk. The conversation here is relaxed but involved, and I usually find I get worthwhile replies to my posts, even if I miss a few of them. It's much more encouraging to post over here. People seem to be happy on this board http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/cool.gif

U.D.-

I made my statements about the "old BB" when we first came over here and have tried to refrain from doing so in the last few days.

But, I can no longer just stand idly by and watch as "bi-boardal" citizens occasionally come over here and chastise those of us who break away, yet fail to take the same stance on those who choose to bash us (and you know who they are)at the old board. There are some who stay there who are being nice about it, but there is the "high profile" people who consider it their duty to slap labels on those of us who made a choice to leave, call us Benedict Arnolds, lay guilt trips on us by saying "they hate to think that people could lose their jobs over this", and the MANY OTHER callous remarks aimed at creating ill-will.

This is not a battle of BB's, although some back there would have it be. I chose to come here for many reasons(I listed them on another thread)and I am happy for those who wish to stay at the old board. I occasionally lurk at the old board to, like Phil, let anyone who has been away for a while know that many of us have moved, and let them know where we are.

All you have to do is take one look at the posts by Roger Garrett, J-Mart, and Denise to see the animosity being spewed, and false accusations being made. If that is promoting harmony I would hate to see what an all out BB war would be like.

Oh yeah, GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!

I still read a few posts on the other board, but have only posted in response to a little handicapping contest, with about 6 others. I, too, find the name calling and attempts to dissuade other from using this board, rather distasteful. I have no agenda, just quite simply this board is faster, stays up, and talks more football, and Chiefs related items, which is all I am looking for. Best of luck to all who have stayed, and I am looking forward to the season, with the rest of you "traitors". http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Oh the melodrama...did I ever tell you guys I was on the grassy knoll? Nobody was there, because Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK.

There is not and never was any freaking conspiracy. The "contrition" that brought about many of us leaving was "contrived" by the BBA's here, not by us. There was nothing secretive or conspriatorial about the way they BLATANTLY deleted posts.

I can assure you that all of your concerns about what might be the demise of the new board are already being met, and any that we might have missed, you conveniently reminded us of. Thanks! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/redface.gif)

I also have had it over there with the us against them mentality. I have posted the following over there to see if it will do any good.

Denise,

I am trying to stay on both boards, but things that you are posting (and a few others too) are making it difficult. Things like calling the reason to leave contrived. Contrived for what reason, to get away from you perhaps. That is plain silly. The people who you might say left for contrived reasons have battled all the issues on this old bb for months if not years. Your disrespect for their reasons is silly, mean, and superfluous. I ask that you take the opportunity to think it through, perhaps even take it back. If you do not then I believe you can forget about the chance that some very old friends are going to either stay or become biboardal (strange term). For now I will stay because other than your we against us rants and those of a few others that I do not consider worthy of responding to their still is a small (not if this BB does not fix the crashing slowness)contingent here that I want to continue to post with, of which one is you. Try to move on, we did not move to get people fired, if they do get in trouble (not fired) then that might be a good thing as they might modify the way they go about banning an entire subject. The fact this is the largest thread on this board and gets the most traffic says something about the concern everyone has for its future. Well enough for now. If this seemed like a lecture sorry, but it was intended to try to convice everyone to stop ragging on those who left since the were once your cyberfriends.

I do not hold out much hope that it will work, but though it was worth a try. Have a good morning all.

One comment about a kc.com regular slingin smack over there.

Doesn't anyone else remember the numerous attempts by roger garrett to get all the regs to move to other BBs? Surely I'm not the only one to notice this. And do not forget his constant boasting of his web builder prowess, and the frequent 'You want me to help you build your site?' offerings.

IMO, he's just ticked we didn't following his lead, instead jumping to this site.

If it's ok for you to always have the last word, why aren't people like me allowed to at least defend themselves? Because it's only ok if it's you. See that's your problem.

You have to listen about the constant boasting about the new BB because it's you (and Roger) that keep harping about it. If you'd stop posting about it, and calling us names, maybe we'd leave you alone.

I for one, only came back here to post in defense. So stop talking about us and we'll stop telling you how great our board is.

U.D.-

You are right, this "battle" is tame compared to others in cyberspace. I have seen the Borg and they are not us.

I should not have singled you out and for that I apologize. My annoyance is just running a little higher due to the lack of "self-respect" on the other BB when addressing the issue of some of us leaving. One person(you know who SHE is), who has always labeled herself as the modicum of understanding, has suddenly dropped her facade and shone her true colors. Instead of leading the pack by example and showing respect for our decisions she has decided to use her voice as a hammer & sickle hacking away with negativism.

If we, as a group, wanted to go back and create chaos on the board, it would be very simple. But, that would not solve anything, would be counter-productive, and is not my style. I have, so far, chosen not to go back and post any counterpoints to her very weak arguments. But should the inferences continue I will address them in a civil manner if need be.

Once again, my apologies for singling you out, I should not have done that.

I guess I was trying to say in my way earlier reply that both boards will take on a life of their own. The split between the two will spawn two vibrant and healthy arenas to support and bash the Chiefs. No worries, mate!

FWIW, I am the person who she keeps referring to when she talks about "Hitler" or "fascist" in her comments. What is so funny is that she accused everyone of calling Beckie & the other BBA's those names, when in fact, all that happened was that I used the term "Hitler's method of expungement". I guess if I had wanted to I should have used her argument "that's YOUR version of what I was trying to say"

Why don't you ask her to come right out and point out the accused person who called Beckie those names?

I might alienate both boards and end up without a home, but this needs to be said. If nothing else, I may single-handedly end the feuding by giving you all a single target to dislike.

It’s pretty ugly on both boards.

On KC.COM we have variations on the “Don’t let screen door hit you” and “We few, we happy few” speeches. Those who left are ________ [insert insult here: pompous, conceited, so forth] and those who remain are _________ [insert complement here: loyal, steadfast, so forth].

On CHIEFSPLANET.COM we have variations on the “Can you believe how the old BB has gone downhill”and “I sure hope __________ [insert least-favorite BB citizen here] doesn’t come over here” posts. Those who left are __________ [insert compliment here: brave, courageous, so forth] and those who remain are ___________ [insert insult here: pathetic, glory-seekers, so forth].

It is sad that this has to be an adversarial thing. However, there will be no end to it until the sniping stops. That includes wistful “lawnmower” parables and “good riddance” comments as well as “free at last” and “psst, guess what they’re doing back home” ridicule.

Everyone claims to want to move on, but simply cannot resist that last little dig at the “enemy.” If you truly want to move on, then just shut up. No more clever digs, no more “I shall take the high ground” speeches, no more “yeah, buts.” Just stop it. Now.

There is no high moral ground to be had, so you might as well stop scrambling for it.
