This is a serious questions and is NOT flaming towards anybody but why does anybody come to this site? You've got an obvious dictator at this site who doesn't let you say shit that he doesn't agree with. You can't make to many threads or post to much or else it'll annoy him. You can't mention any other sites or dare say anything bad about him or you'll get banned and frankly, I don't see much interesting discussion going on here. Whether it's the people or the dictator in charge I don't know.

So, why do you come to this site and post? I'd like to know...that is, if this thread isn't deleted.

      Z's never criticized me for posting to much, and I'm far and away #1 in total number of posts. Now, does he criticize some of my posts, yes. But, as long as the posts are at least semi-coherent, Z allows them. As long as common sense is used, there usually is no problem. Hell, he's gone a month since placing anything into the banished folder.
      If you don't like the discussion occurring here, well, last time I checked no one is holding a gun to your head telling you to come here.

Granted, I haven't seen every single thread here by any means, much less every single thread containing a banned poster or forbidden post or closed thread, et al, but from what I have seen, all the Zims ask for is coherent thought and restraint.

I'd wager that you couldn't find much (if anything) to prove your theory that they're banning/deleting based on opinions contrary to their own; in fact, to apply your theory to the Politics folder implies that they agree with both ends of the political spectrum to the point of illogical contradiction, since seemingly every possible ideological stance has been taken by someone in the course of debate.

Here's the deal, Boge: just because you don't understand or agree with the rules doesn't mean they're unjust. Which leads to the obvious question: why do you come here?

It's too bad you guys can't make your points without resorting to flaming and trolling. Yessir.

By the way, I believe the most *obvious* thing about me being a dictator would be when I actually use the words "I am a dictator," which I have done several times and will continue to do as long as I'm primarily responsible for this board. I might also note that it's hard to take your "serious" discussion seriously when you couldn't seem to go more than one post without namecalling.

By the way, redsoxnation, you post WAY too much.

Well, the reason I come here is because this is seriously the only good message board I've ever seen. Have you ever been to another board, wrestling or otherwise? They're full of flaming retards. CRZ's aggressive moderation keeps the board clean (relatively speaking) of complete idiots.

Here's my problem with your statements. You said that if you annoy him, he will tell you. For me, that's what I want from him. If he let almost any post stay on the board, then these people will think it's okay to, let's say, make 100 appreciation threads. The inmates would be running the asylum so to speak, and the board would quickly devolve.

I agree with Tenken347. I tried the 411 forums and found them lacking in disciplined posts. I tried mtv.com and again the ratio of inane to thoughtful posts was staggering. Another advantage is the number of different categories on this board. With wrestling being not as important to people as in the past (like me), I find that Random and Video Game forums are perfect to comment in.

I understand that I am kissing ass right now, and I don't think I've ever been complimented by the powers that be, so don't think that I have any relationship with the bro's. I just see how bad message boards can be, and I am thankful (Tis the season) for a thoughtful board.

Great Answer...that is exactly it. I don't have to come hear and go through 500 posts of garbage to find something remotely interesting...

This place is guilty for trashing the wrong people sometime. I know we aren't supposed to feed trolls, but I've seen people called idiots or morons or whatever for defending this board. That sounds like a complement to the people that run this board to me. But whatever.

I can come here and chat about anything from wrestling to comics to politics without sixteen year old illiterates shouting the word "KIK" at me fifteen times while they try to prove their points. I'd much rather have CRZ's dictatorial modding than none at all.

Hey, what does KIK mean anyway?

I am too young to remember Verne Gagne and Lou Thez. Yet, I am too old or too intelligent (I guess) to appreciate Vic Grimes/Homeless Jimmy death matches. That would eliminate every wrestling board except RSPW...wait I said wrestling board, so I guess that eliminates them all. And as my wrestling interest declines, I find that this is a pretty good all around board just to read and discuss just about everything.

You pretty much free to say what you feel here. I don't recall anyone being banned for cursing or having an 'offensive' viewpoint. The reasons people get banned are for being obviously stupid (The dude who used to post all the time about the migrations of the Samoan tribes, as example), for failure to adhere to the rules of 5th grade English (Keep the Ebonics and netspeak in ICP chat), posting too much, and trying to get over at the admins expense. I don't care too much for any of the above.

See this is what the internet has become, either sites trying to have a squeky clean image or sites where snot nosed boppers run wild. Guess it is refreshing to find one that finds a medium.

I post here, because I like wrestling, and can converse with others who do as well. Sometimes we dont agree, but that is life. Is CRZ a dictator? Yes, but at the same time, he is forking over the cash to keep the site running, so he can do as he sees fit, as far as I am concerned.

I moderate at another board (80sxchange.com)and we are very quick to ban people who make a habit of flaming. The world is filled with enough stupid shit, people should be able to converse someplace on the web and actually ENJOY thier time there.

It's hard to ENJOY when a moderator treats certain posters arbitrarily. I had half of my posts deleted. Yet it's okay for people to do "drunk" reviews, and post fake spoilers? I'm portraying a dorky character, and get a personal message with CRZ accusing me of being another poster, and threatens to ban me?! That's ENJOYMENT? How depressing is that?

Davros is right, this is a hot dog stand. He's over at 411 now BTW.

"Davros is right, this is a hot dog stand. He's over at 411 now BTW."

Because namedropping a prize dickhead makes you COOL.

"I had half of my posts deleted. Yet it's okay for people to do "drunk" reviews, and post fake spoilers?"

Only DEAN does drunk reviews. He is both funny and insightful. I have never seen a case of somebody deliberately faking spoilers as a gag. And I've been here a long time.

"I'm portraying a dorky character"

That's the problem. This is a wrestling board. Not wrestling itself.

Real classy oldschool zero. You're a damn troll. You're the dickhead. What about the Smackdown spoiler w/ Borrie Wilson? Selective viewing I guess. Dickhead.
Oh yeah, you give Brits a bad name. You prat.

I've always thought that a large reason a lot of us are here is because we used to read CRZ's recaps and we liked his style. To that extent, it makes sense that we'd agree with most of his board management policies and generally get along with each other, since there's already a precedent of like-mindedness established. I do have to wonder though now that the slash has been inactive for over a year how or why new people are coming here. Are people being directed from the occasional namedrop at 411, or is there a large audience of former CRZ readers still discovering this place?

Yeah, maybe that is the case. I was a fan once. But if this place is an exclusive club, then somebody should let a new guy like me know before I get trashed, defend myself, and eventually get banned.

This is a cool board, but some of you people are downright rude and childish. If it isn't your quarrel (i.e. osh), stay out. If you need to try to trash me, send me a PM. Or is that too adult to ask?
