CB is Horrible

Post by Gunk »

Forgive me, CourgarCorner, I strayed and found myself enticed by the mass of BYU fans on Cougar Board.

I thought maybe I could adjust to their weird, 2001-style forum style. Worse, I thought I would find civil discourse.

I wish I knew a better way to entice more intelligent, polite, thoughtful BYU fans here to CougarCorner to discuss things. But I just can't seem to find a way to do it. The CB crowd wants to be abrasive, and that's not the type I want here so those that find their way over quickly leave. But there's no denying this place has been a ghost town lately.

The name calling, the belittling, and the patronizing gets old very quickly. No amount of information and virtual friendships is worth the crap.

I have been here. I check it daily. Just busy and we are in the slow season now.

It is the slow portion of the year.

But maybe we should start a program where each of go find two friends and we refer them to you to explain the benefits of joining CougarCorner so they see they can be better, happier fans. Everyone wants to be happier fans.

Hawkwing, I like and appreciate Cougar Corner and thank you for it. I've seen some disagreement but not name calling. Let us not give up on your very good sight. I'll keep coming here. I'll go see if there is something on track and field.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I'm not planning on shutting anything down right now, it costs me about 3 times as much to host this as I make in ad revenue, but unless I lose my job I'll keep it going.

What is the best thing we can do to help the site's ad revenue?

I can't stand CB, and this site is home

You do an fantastic job. How much does the site cost you each year?

Also, folks…more people is more traffic, which advertisers like, meaning more revenue. Let’s get some eyeballs on this place so Hawkwing doesn’t have to skimp on the Christmas presents for his kids.
