    Looks like the guys over at GatorSports.com really forums really pissed off the admins/owners.

    Apparently the forum was having problems with post order, some older posts were showing up out of sink. One of the regulars put a post bashing the admin/owners and additionally posted contact information to initiate complaints about the poorly managed condition of the forum site.

    The counter action by GS was to shut the board down; stupid move IMO. If you don't want people to complain about your crappy forum site then maintenance it. Don't shut it down it just makes you look even more incompetent.

    Anyways, not sure if there are many here who post/lurk on both as I do but I thought this was a little silly.

    I was wondering what happened with that. Most of the time the posters are nasty and they just attack each other. Only look there every once in a while.

    Sounds like every Gamecock board. South Carolinians are still seceding from everything, even each other:

    As I recall in my brief stint there (the sun, not gatorsports), it generates a large amount. But that's not unusual. The problem is that forum traffic is largely valueluess. Advertising - if you can get it - is typically remnant and of low value. A site like Gatorsports can get a $20-$25 RPM on their site and $1 RPM on forums.

    For a lot of publications, it's not worth the effort.

    I read that board regularly just to see if there was anything interesting. Occasionally there is something of value. But for the most part it was a lot of bickering and pissing contests.

    I personally love reading msg boards where people with football knowledge talk about football. I hate ones where people just complain about players and coaches and each other and act like the world is out to get them just because their team lost.

    I read and posted on Gatorsports regularly for years. I think it is a fun place. You can figure out which posters are there to talk football and which ones aren't. You cant be sensitive on that site becsuse you will get cracked on. That is what makes it fun IMHO. Plus, they usually allow rival fans to come over and discuss thier team without the fear of being band easily. They even had a thread recognizing the life of a poster (a rival poster btw) that died. The message board got together and sent the family flowers/cards/well wishes. If you really get to know those posters you will realize that it is like any other message board. In fact, they are almost like a family.

    It was a lousy forum. Lots of posts that were repeated because of the poor way the forum was set up or designed. I signed up for it and apparently due to a glitch was banned before I even posted anything. Tried to contact them but to no avail. The forum won't be missed.
