You sure he's going to read this? What's the issue - his goofy, self-important parody? Didn't seem like something worth getting one's panties in a twist over, but you seem to know something the rest of us don't.

I'm rushing over there to read it, right now!

Jubuki, glad to see you back, but... weren't you banned?

Kickin' the Torch's hitcount up right now. I never go there, but now I'm intrigued.

Well I'm sorry I don't have any 411 Wrestling Writers to talk about but when something like that invades a nearly acceptable site like the Torch, I have to do the only thing I can do, and post to the Wienersville Site Bashing Board.

Damnit people no don't go read it NO THIS HAS BACKFIRED and will turn into a discussion of that CRZ-hating EZBoard why god why.

Eh. I can't tell whether it went over my head, or if it just bored me to death. Well, it definately bored me, but I still may not have 'gotten it'. Oh well. Waste of time.

From now on, I'll just stick to the slash.

human: Temporarily. I bet Zed is in opposition to the death penalty.

Justin: I'm still not following you in the least. I don't have a clue what's intended by the 411 name-dropping, aside maybe from being smarmy, but I was just curious as to what irked you so much. It really seemed rather harmless to me. That, and I don't have much respect for the Torch anyway.

More like "I'd like several people on this board to experience the death penalty."

opposed to the death penality? i'm sure he'd like to have a whole bally lot of us killed off to make his life easier...

If you wish death upon those people, why aren't they just banned altogether? Seems contradictory to hope that their life functions cease, yet you continue to tolerate them on a forum you run.

Hey Jubuki, does the word sarcasm mean anything to you?

I will admit though that I don't understand Justin's rant about Bergan. I read his last two articles from the lounge and they only seemed boring to me, certainly not enough to make me swear at him.

I think Justin was thinking that anything that derative and pointlessly self-referential/meta didn't belong on a "news" site; it wasn't up to the the quality he percieved on the site and brought his opinion of the whole site down. Even if was simply boring, why should the Torch be posting boring, lower quality stuff?

But I don't claim to read his mind.

"I was just curious as to what irked you so much. It really seemed rather harmless to me"

I feel you. The story is this. The Torch website has its obvious flaws (Powell Powell Powell, Wade talking about NWA TNA, 95% of the guest columns) but all things considered it's one of only two legitimately non-retarded wrestling websites on the ENTIRE INTERNET. I was terribly appalled to see that "OMG look at me, I'm a wrestle-writing internet superstar"-type column not only invade the Torch but become a regular feature. It rocked me to my very core.

What you do understand, Justin, is that Torch went downhill the moment they let anyone who could string together about 500 words in a semi-coherent article be on the site. It killed it.

OH WAIT

Actually, the Torch at best was Torch Today Pointless Newsbits and Bruce Mitchell Smarky Winky Hinting At Things I Can't Say On The Air (but if you call the hotline/buy the sheet) bits when they didn't have a major story to break.

When they have a major story, they're still good but when there's less and less of WWE stuff and more more NWA/TNA news and (quoting) "amazing Waltman interview via e-mail today with Torch sub", it makes DAVE'S SITE look like an actual content provider.

What is now is a week of discussion about an off hand comment Vince made about ECW, which doesn't really differinate it from Seadawg's Awesome Delphi Forum, and quite frankly [1], the people in the Awesome former are a lot more intersting when they're making fun of such a dumb idea.

I can safely say there are 3 non-retarded wrestling sites on the Net. But I think that may actually be all there is. Well, if one excuses the title/matchlists/history sites.

Actually you were talking about a 411 writer. Derek writes Hype for the Smarks at 411.

Just my opinion but I thought it was a good column. It bashed fellow torch writers who deserved it. I never had much respect for the torch either. I like the idea of the Lounge being like the NWO Outsiders who are really the ultimate insiders; but try to play against the powers that be.

I can see how his self-promotion would bother people, but Ive seen worse wrestling columns playing to the band.

Ah how perfect.

"It bashed fellow torch writers who deserved it."

Why would you write a column about wrestling writers? Let alone one that obnoxious? I know if I be hatin' it then I should just ignore it, but it's pretty GAY to see the Torch descend to the 411 level.

"I like the idea of the Lounge being like the NWO Outsiders who are really the ultimate insiders; but try to play against the powers that be."

Wrestling websites aren't supposed to do wrestling angles.

A couple of years back, I recall enjoying the recap stylings of GH and Joe on the old Shooters (I think) website. Does anyone know if that stuff is archived online somewhere? I'd love to revisit the mirth and merriment.
