I dunno, Guru seems like the 'sidekick' of this particular pairing. The Pippen to his Jordan. The Maxx Muscle to his DDP. The Roadogg to his Double J. The Ed Leslie to his Hogan if you will. This is just my two cents on the subject at hand.

You know, I don't think this is working out. Please enjoy the 411 forums and say "hi" to Hyatte for me. (Aaron's too nice to plonk you for attacking him, but I'M not!)

Damn, I didn't think that was too bad of an attack. Seemed like a joke to me. And kinda humorous as well. I don't think the guy had any bad intentions.

Aww...Now he'll never get to post his vaunted Stephanie McMahon Upskirt thread.

Whatever shall we do?

Thanks for keeping the peace, Z.

I didn't laugh.

In fact, I didn't laugh so hard that I passed right over the thread.

jeez, i used to think i was missing stuff by avoiding the wrestling forum...guess i was wrong. i haven't really been watching the shows, i'm have the last 2 weeks worth of raw + sd! on tape waiting to be watched, yet i'm not that motivated to see them, hence no wrestling forum for me...

Yes, heaven forbid you disagree with the owner of an establishment (or his brother) and get kicked out as a result.

Let me ask you somthing. You rip on Vince Mcmahon, right? How about his wife Linda? Or his daughter Steph? Now, do they stop you from watching their show or going to live events? I doubt it. If every single person here shares the same opinions of CRZ, then I think I'll leave on my own. I thought that was the purpose of a forum. A place to voice your opinions and discuss them with others.

There is difference. A big one, that you seem to be glossing over.

The McMahons are the owners of a publically owned company, one which you or I have no effect over as individuals, whatsoever. If we can't contain ourselves, and we start bitching about Vince or Linda, they don't care, simply because it has no effect on the product if one fan or one thousand fans are being intentionally disruptive (though I invite you to go and try to pick fights or be intentionally disruptive at a live show, and see how long you last with security).

Another thing is, is that the McMahons make money, alot of it, on our dollars. We're the ones that buy the PPVs, the merch, we provide the ratings that bring in the ad dollars, so why SHOULD Vince care if you hate him, as long is you continue to put money in his pocket. Even if you don't, he still doesn't care, because there are several thousand people behind you that will.

Neither CRZ or Guru make ANY money off this site. There are no ads. We don't send them cash. This service to talk about wrestling and whatever other crap we want to talk about is provided free of charge, and for that, if we post here, we should feel endebted enough not to come on and mock them. It's stupid. It's for that same reason that I don't go to a free concert to boo the band, or get a free sample at a restaurant, and then bitch about the service.
I might do it afterwords with my friends, or even, if I'm a big enough asshole, go to another concert or another restaurant and bitch about the "other" guy. The Zims are giving us something free, the VERY least we can do is treat them with the respect they are owed for that. Don't like it? There are PLENTY of other free message boards. Though, you'll probably get the EXACT same treatment if you go over there and bitch about the board's mods or owners too.

There are a lot of guys wrestling in high school gyms right now cause they pissed off Vince. Come to think of it, the 411 boards remind me of a high school gym.

Come on, the 411 boards aren't all that bad. Their biggest problem is that Widro and Ashish hardly have anything to do with it. It's almost as if the forums are a seperate entity from the actual site, as opposed to wienerville which was always an equal, vital partner with Slash.

If Widro or Ashish took a more hands on approach to their forum, or assigned moderators with a more err.. "CRZish" way of maintaining focus (I for one, would love to see how Hyatte would run the forums), I could easily see 411 having a very cool, very influential forum set.

I guess what I'm saying is the 411 forums have potential, but the people running them stink. (my opinion and no one elses).

I've not been reading for all that long, but this board does seem to be a bit more authoritarian than a lot of others. A month or so, for example, there seemed to be quite a lot of posts by Guru Zim bemoaning the state of the board, and, in one, even looking forward to 'having to' expel lots of people. I was a bit confused, becuase I really couldn't see the problem - no real flaming, fairly moderate language, a generally calmer tone than a lot of boards. It still didn't seem to be good enough for the moderators, though. Personally (and obviously speaking as someone who wasn't the focus of the post), that intial posting really didn't seem very insulting. A bit silly, maybe, but it does seem a bit harsh to boot the guy for it. This is not the same thing as saying that CRZ didn't have the right to do it, 'cause obviously it's his site; just that it seems to be a wee bit of an over-reaction. Still, what do I know?

Usually, it's not one post that will get you banned...it's contributing to a certain continuing pattern of behaviour. Most people pretty much know what they're doing when they get a warning, and when they keep right on doing it they aren't so surprised when I plonk 'em.

Now that I'm back with all kinds of free time on my hands (ha), expect me to go drop back into evil dictator mode as necessary...even though this isn't really "my" board anymore, I have no problems stepping up when Guru's too busy with work to be the overlord.

The reason the place is like that is cause the moderators do a good job of keeping it so. Those two guys were pissing off a lot of folks with the majority of their posts, hence banned I would guess.(Cue the ass kissing accusations).
