Hello Moderators,

I agree, can you edit the title of this post and rename it "Welcome to the ChiefsPlanet.com Bulletin Board?

As the originator, I feel that renaming would do wonders for the posts.

Thanks

responsible? the BB admin of the kc.com bb.

Their policy change on 'acceptable' topics w/o so much as an explanation (they just began deleting posts and posters), cause a lot of ire.

The format here is better and the forum is self governing. IP tracing blocks nastier trolls and one can post HTML and smilies http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

I had been using the other board all the time until this one came around. I occasionally go over there to look, but I prefer the way this board is set up. Plus I can make all the smiley faces I want over here. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/frown.gif http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/redface.gif http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/tongue.gif http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/cool.gif

There are a number of people who post on both boards and enjoy it. I try to stay pretty much to this board just for the simple reason I don't have the time to play on both.

I occasionally lurk at the other board just to see what is being said there and to pick up on comments by the more intelligible posters who aren't "trolling" or posting just to see themselves in print.

It is interesting to see that, for the most part, we here have tried to keep the relationship civil and try not to make derogatory comments about the other board. Yet there are still a few people on the other board intent on making snide and catty remarks, while all the time calling for civility and harmony between the boards.

There was an excessive amount of negativity on the other board after the Titans loss. That's what made me bi-boardal. I'm reluctant to register myself at too many places on the Internet, but this board is definitely worth it, given my homeristic Chiefs tendencies.

IMHO I spend more time here because I am sick and tired of all the negative Chiefs fans. I do not know about the rest of you, but I am a Chiefs fan no matter what. I get tired of reading Denise-like posts talking about how bad the Chiefs are because Rich Gannon is not here anymore, boo hoo hoo : ( Get over it he is a Raider and Chiefs FANS are Raider haters. Every time Rich Gannon wins, it makes me sick, because there is nothing I like more than to see the Raiders lose http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif

And plus, I also believe that it is OK to have a board where you can talk Chiefs and politics, if you want. I do not see a problem with the KC Star not allowing political discussions, however it has played a large role in the initiation and success of this BB.

Now that I have made a few enemies by picking on Denise, I will move on http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Now ChiTown, when you say 'invent' did you:

A)Create the technology or logic behind the transmission of 'packets' of information over a wire

-or-

B)Sponsor legislation.

Either are both considered 'inventing' of the same technology on this BB, I just want to clarify.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Sydney prostitutes are offering customers ``Sprints! Relays! and Marathons!'' in an advertising drive to cash in on the Olympic Games (news - web sites).

One brothel in the Lidcombe area near the Olympic complex insists in an advert in the Daily Telegraph tabloid that it has ''gold medal specialists'' to entertain clients.

Another near the Olympic Homebush Bay venues says: ``Go for gold! -- We always go the distance.''

Several others simply boast of ``gold medal services.''

Brothels are legal in Sydney and the rest of the state of New South Wales. <P>

Pam - A dongle is also known by some as a pony tail. In laymans term it is normally an adapter used on laptops from an PCMCIA ethernet card (really thin card that slides into a slot on a laptop) to a network cable. The size of the network connection would cause you to use 2 of the PCMCIA slots instead of just one, so they use a dongle to take up less space. I doubt that is very clear, but I don't know how else then to describe it.

Oh Mark told me it was an extra piece to a program to make it next to impossible to copy.

He said it might be a little piece of the program that would go to a different port like the printer or something like that and if it were copied, then the program would not work cause the dongle would not be on it.

Kyle (AustinChief) is responsible for the production. But I believe that actually praise should go to Denise.

After a heated discussion between myself and her, she offered that "if you don't like it, go somewhere else." I took her suggestion and many, many (too numerous to mention) started plugging this bb and coming over here.

I'm not even sure if it's pessimism per se that's the problem; the negativity that sometimes engulfs that other board isn't of the "expect-the-worst" sort, it's of the "make-up-sh!t-and-stir-it" sort. A pessimist can enjoy a bright outcome, at least. I sometimes get the feeling that some of the posters over there would put a pillow over a sleeping bright outcome's mouth and try to smother it.

I was going to shake everyones hands, cyber style, about the success of Chiefsplanet but was unable to grasp them as they were too busy slapping each others backs.

Every one of you should be thankful that the KCStar enabled people to access their site LONG before Chiefsplanet was a gleam in someones eye.

This site is far from being the pillar of optimism nor is the KCStar the cellar of pessimism. The mass exodus of the regulars has allowed the birth of many lurkers to come forth and express their views over there.

Be thankful (and gracious?) for the opportunity to have two legitimate sites to discuss Chiefs football.

09-22-2000, 04:37 PM
Cal - It would have no success without the regulars - you are correct!

Thus the reason this board is successful is because MANY people realized that the other board was overbearing, dishonest, and partial to certain parties.

I am not sure what you are getting at other than some sort of attempt to ridicule my comparisons. However, if you wish to go elsewhere with them, I will be happy to drop the US vs. GB comparison.

Do you credit feces with the advent of toilet paper?

Do you thank the deaths of millions from influenza for penicillin?

Do you praise gangrene for the first successful amputations?

I came here to shake your hand and welcome you to the board, but i couldn't find you because you were out looking for things to complain about in reference to this board.

FYI, I have been posting to Chief's related BB's for longer than the KC.com BB has been in existence. I found it because someone I was chatting with told me about the people there and I visited and stayed. I have found just as many fellow Chiefs fan on other boards as I did there. If you really want to place the credit where it belongs, then let's all go back to where we all first learned about the KC Star site and thank them for having a BB where we could meet someone who told me about the KC site.

As for the "pessimism vs optimism" argument, that is one that is all perspective. I lurk on the old BB and find it a pessimistic place. You see it otherwise....

I am thankful and gracious to those who are that way to me...that site was neither.

Although I take great pride in the fact that I have a diversity of aquantances, it is disrurbing to me that you would cast aspersions onto my character by accusing me of relations with such a nefarious lot.

Why, sir, would I want to associate with individuals that espouse freedom of thought, tolorance, intelligent discourse, generally optomistic attitudes, and a common passion?

Surely you mistake me for someone else?

Nay, view me as on the side of those that are jelous and vindictive. I have no desire to be persecuted with those rebels that left the Mother BB. Classify me in with those of limited minds that know the answers to all problems football and social, and need not the honest discourse of other thoughts in order to formulate and maintain loudly broadcast opinions.

If I have no common passion about the Chiefs because I am overbearing, lack tolerance, or abridge anyone's freedom of thought because of my pessimism then why should I attempt to scale this stack of cards that have been marked against myself?

Cal - You misinterpret. I have not blamed you for any of the mentioned afflictions.

You attempted to credit a board run with less than honorable tactics for the creation of this board.

While I agree that Chiefsplanet.com would not exist without the other board - they deserve no credit for anything other than running a great portion of their advertising dollars off to greener (and ironically - ad free) pastures.

A good many things are created, discovered, or invented because of horrible circumstances. One does not thank the negative circumstances for the creation of postive aspects/.

09-24-2000, 09:29 AM
Russ,

Both boards have their share of problems and to berate those who choose to participate on either site is of no measurable value.

Chiefsplanet has its own moderators to filter undesirable comments from members it deems unworthy to post. The KC BB has a moderator(s) that does the same thing but appeared to become oppressive towards a select few who became enraged and fled to this site.

I can comprehend the validity of having your thoughts censored and electing to find a more suitable forum to continue your discourses on politics, religion, and the exploits of the Chiefs. What I cannot understand are the opinions from the majority of the "regulars" who applaud themselves for making their cyber existence more enjoyable, yet find a sense of satisfaction from categorizing the remaining KC BB members, who were not subjected to the dictatorship, as less than desirable in their allegiance to the Chiefs.<P>

Not exactly sure where I fit in this cyber pissing contest. I started posting on the other BB quite a while back and have enjoyed it. I don't really consider myself one of "you" or one of "them". I missed the incident that spawned the mass exodus but I am familiar with the story. I am really confused how and why the dispute between posters and the BB administrator has evolved into an argument between our fellow Chiefs fans. I continue to read and post on both but see a little something missing on each board. The split has IMHO followed philosophical lines. There is not as much diversity of thought as their once was. A one sided debate is not very interesting. Oh well I think I've broken enough wind for now so GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is kinda sad.

In less than four hours, our beloved Chiefs take on a conference rival in enemy territory. Because of the schedules of both teams, our playoff hopes hinge pretty much on this battle. We also face a determination as to whether or not our coaching staff is really as bad as we fear. Not to mention the hooting we would have to endure from the more obnoxious Broncos Homers who visit these shores.

And what is the hottest topic on the BB?

Gaz,

If my math serves me correct and my vision is 20/20 it looks like....

"The other board appears....." (CP) 83

"Chiefsplanet talking smack..."(KCBB) 75

And you point was again?

Let me join my voice to those of disappointment.

I have taken rather a cavalier attitude toward this Topic because it, and what it represents, are nonsensical. Personally, I could care less if persons somewhere in cyber space want to categorize the bb I frequent most with some kind of generalized label.

It has been my perception that many people spend their lives looking for things to be offended by. If myself and others choose to change our cyber habits it is not a personal insult to any one person. If we choose to discuss our reasoning (be it imperfect, irrational, or not even fully understood) there is no reason for anyone else to take offense.

Like minded individuals tend to spend time with each other. To act like this is some insulting kind of revelation is juvenile.

There are those on both BBs that want to make this into some grand revolutionary stand for principals and justice (and for some, perhaps it is ~ I just found it an opportune time to Ďhang outí with a bunch of people whom I respect), but for many others it is nothing more than the ebb and flow of the market place. I believe it is the castigation of those that choose to be insulted that supports a lack of diversity on both BBs.

Although I will say that I have seen very little bashing on this bb of the other bb, it is somewhat insulting to me (as a moderator) to be accused of censoring people. To accuse any moderator here of that demonstrates a distinct lack of knowledge ~ commonly known as ignorance.

I will, however, work to ignore such transgressions and encourage all to post here regardless of common sense http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Cal Injun:

For me, the only thing that I find puzzling in the post you made is that you seem to be taken aback that anyone would answer your post in a contradictory manner. You come onto this BB, chastise us with the phrase:

"I was going to shake everyones hands, cyber style, about the success of Chiefsplanet but was unable to grasp them as they were too busy slapping each others backs."

and then expect us all to cower in embarassment at your revelation. If i was to go and post that same chastisement I would elicit the same response from those who post there.

There is nothing different in the personalities that make up kc.com BB and cheifsplanet that would set one above the other. To insinuate that those of us who post here are "elitists", and that's exactly what your response inferred, is incorrect.

Gaz,

It was in reference to your post where you talked about today's game and then added the final sentence about "what is the hottest topic on the other BB"?

But we both know that a thread is never 100% dedicated to the subject matter so high numbers are a misnomer.

I posted "over there" that it was an attempt by the Chiefs organization to deflect attention to the unveiling of those Disco Red pants at Mile High today.

Methinks it will suspend, indefinitely, our Super Bowl aspirations until these hideous things run their losing course.

At least the newbies will now experience what the late 70s and 80s were like....

My apologies. I mistook the "BB" as inference to KC BB.

Anyone watching the Falcons/Rams?

They just scored with Jamaal and now they recovered an onside kick.... in the FIRST QUARTER!!!

Kphobia,

I'm sorry I made the remark under the same post, What's happening in general, not with the bb situation.

I've been out of the country for a bit and away from computers, and didn't pay much attention to the news as it was all in French.

Today is my first visit to this site. I read the other every day for about two years and was a hit and run poster. The last few weeks have been slow. Seeing the familiar names, Gaz, Morphius, etc. has been like a reunion. To me, the regular posters are like characters in a play. I know their personalities, and can't wait to catch-up on their takes on my favorite team.

Hey there moderators, could we just rename this thread? Something like, "Welcome to the ChiefsPlanet BB" or "Views on the ChiefsPlanet BB" or some such thing?

Then we could get rid of the jackals who like to accuse this BB of being drunk with success... (though true, true... pass the beer!)<P>

Some days that is not true. I teach in a small school district and today there were two different organizations on field trips. Needless to say, at the most I had seven kids in my biggest class. Was a great day to get caught up on all grading!!!

Welcome to the board....

He brings to mind a great thought, that we are all just characters in this great little "soap opera" of sports comraderie.

Interesting how each persons perceptions are uniquely different.

Hello Moderators,

Would you change the title of this post to
"Welcome to the ChiefsPlanet.com Bulletin Board"?

It was suggested and I agree. As the originator I am not adverse to the change.

Thanks

Your KU-mu discussions were great. Of course you were wrong. mu is not nor ever will be in KU class. However, your arguments were without a doubt the most reasoned of any tiger fan I have ever met.

Mr Blond:

Thanks for the compliment...

As for KU-MU, although I am a die-hard Tiger fan I am not blinded by homerism. KU has a great Basketball tradition, but even in the worst of times for Mizzou they still manage to give the 'Hawks fits.

I look for the MU-KU basketball matchups to be pretty close this year. And, I actually believe that Mizzou will be a much better team without Keyon Dooling. They will be forced to play team ball more and that can only help.
