    Those are good ads. Not like the evil ads here at S2.

    You may all think you were liberated, but in reality you were suckered into leaving by plotting admins who want, no need your content creation to survive.

    Without the Blazer forum this place is pretty much a ghost town.

    I hope you enjoy being suckered to fill the wallets of people with nothing in mind but dollar signs. It's quite obvious to anyone that substantive basketball talk is very low on the priority of the group running this site.
    BBF made money off this group too. In fact they went so far as to charge for avatars and lifetime memberships....then, they failed to service the needs of their customers. So they left.

    Your comments about trolling and mods and board management is off base. The biggest trolls at BBF were themselves mods. And they treated this community like shit.

    Denny and company are good hosts....as good as can be found anywhere, and they've made everyone feel welcome. Not only that the board programming here is far superior to BBF.

    The business of running an internet message board isn't all that lucrative. There isn't anyone running a Blazer board that is rolling in dough. Anyone who is doing it is doing so because they enjoy it. Don't delude yourself. If SportsTwo makes a few bucks off the ads and can use that revenue to pay for bandwith and what not then good for them. I'd say they are spending that money well. And if they make a few dollars extra and can stuff it in an IRA or take a nice vacation, or even have a steak dinner and drinks then thats even better.

    Your notion that there is some sort of conspiracy generated by the people who run this site is rubbish.

    Go piss up a rope.

    After waiting for an irritating 9/11-like event to happen, a PM campaign was mounted by a couple of instigators to tell everyone to move to the Sports2 board. The dozen or so who hung back (including HCP and me) received a strange error message when logging in, requiring re-registration. Since almost everyone was already gone, that was the final straw that motivated the remaining holdouts to stop posting. Looked like an inside job, with one infiltrator turning on the error message for those left.

    Why don't you come up with some tale like that? No one would believe you. What an imagination I have.

    He may not be washed up but he is in serious decline. He had problems with both knees last year and he is 34. The next year he plays defense will be the first. He’s better than Boozer.

    Well, it's actually nice to feel needed and wanted and to know that the people who run this board understand business; you have to keep your customers happy if you want to keep them. Now, do you have any actual hard evidence that this was a deliberate manipulation or this your own opinion?

    Mr. BoneHead is deeply confused if he thinks the Canadian porn kingpin that owns BBB cares more about basketball discussion than Denny Crane.

    On the contrary. I gave Eric a hard time when Bones started, And I did so without watching much of the show at all. I was a jerk for doing so, and I regret doing so now, and I happen to enjoy reading his posts, and I enjoy conversing with him on this forum. If people make money on that, good on 'em. At least I have the satisfaction of knowing that the person making money from my posts is not you.

    Can you channel some of that money you are making from me posting here to my account? I'm not sure how I am making you rich being unemployed and all. Maybe you could tell me how that works so I can get in on it.

    Seriously, Denny, who are the officers of the corporation? Is it owned by another corporation? Who are the officers of that one? Can you PM me the financial statements? All I need are the income statement and the balance sheet. You can skip the rest. I don't understand any of that stuff, so you're safe.
