seriously though. if you like fighter a b or c its probably better to read and make threads about them rather than developing an aversion to others.

youl always find what you are looking for in the end. if you want to write and read about silva then thats easy. if you want to avoid mentions of other guys then thats hard. whoever you like as a fighter has fans and also probably has massive neutral interest if they are any good. but so does the other guy too.

i have no standing here so im not talking for the site, but it goes that way all over the internet in general.

silva in particular is in for a rollercoater ride of publicity over the next couple of months. we could have everything from retirement to people saying he was over rated on one hand and people screaming for a superfight with jones on the other and posting matrix style gifs all over the internet.

as for the ug, if you have been there for that long then i think its sad you left whatever the circumstances and i hope you mend that bridge eventually.
yeah maybe I will go back one day. I feel like there is way too much negativity there and the mods do not care to clean it up. It is sad to leave there but I find myself not enjoying the place like I used to. thank you for the kind words

no probs

i find on the internet the bigger the site the more it degrades. its blasphemy to say that of course, but look at youtube and imdb. look at the old sherdog when fighters actually posted before the trolls chased them away. mods come and ban people and just create 1000s of pissed off spawn accounts. a hive mind is developed and nurtured where people care more about belts and being part of the consensus than actually contributing and taking in knowledge and opinion. mods start to care more about what offends the hive than actually holding up the rules. and with 1000s of posters no one misses one.

eventually you have youtube style pages full of spam and white ebonic text speak.

the loss of core value through expansion will happen in a lot of walks of life, but online its unfettered.

unfortunately the solutions would be unpalatable to a commercially driven website. paradoxically a community driven website is actually likely to have less animosity and a broader range of opinion.

for instance on sherdog, your post would be met with a cool story bro and some other dumb shit. basically you would have people trying to attack you for no other reason than to get e points with their e friends. likewise on imdb the place has degenerated into a fan club for film stars and shows. any critical analysis is judged through the prism of is he dissing or is he giving props or recycling pointless fan feed.

il stop, but the internet is basically a reflection of real life and at the same time an inhuman beast that has its own legs and no brain to control itself. i tend to look at it as a pandoras box for information and that way i am happy whatever i meet.

all the best

Don't worry about trolls here. The mods usually shut them down quickly so they can continue their own trolling.

I haven't seen an introduction thread in ages. Must be a different posting mentality over at the UG/Sherdog.

Oh snap, there's actually an introduction section? Lol, I spend too much time in just the UFC section.

Welcome to the board man! I actually chose this forum because of the lack of trolling (or at least enforcement of rules against it). We value the quality of our discussions here as intelligent and well thought. Don't think we're prudes though, we have fun too. Check out general discussion for some good chats and laughs.

I'll give you 100,000 credits if you get through "You Laugh, You Lose" on nightmare mode >:[

Rules here tend to be a bit more strict than what they may be elsewhere, but we also offer warnings for those things. Usually a couple unless it's just flagrant. But as I said, we try and keep the maturity up and the trolling down. Enjoy your stay

haha! thank you man. its good to see that this place is a bit more serious about things. I dont like having to sift through a crap ton of troll posts to get to the real stuff.

Pretty impressed so far with this crowd
