No record of it now exists, part of why I'm here. I'm guessing the one here got pretty toxic as well? Truth be told, I helped contribute quite a bit to that at PR.

We don't need a scapegoat. They're always welcome back if they so choose...but you can't be surprised that they'll lean to going back. It's by nature.

This. I'm happy we gained some new people, and everyone is always welcome. Hell, people could decide to double up on their Bucs discussions. I think we did a great job being welcoming to their membership, even though I was called a vulture over there for suggesting that people could come here if they were looking for something new. Scott and Mark deleted any comments that mentioned us, we did none of that over here. In fact, we were the only ones to suggest that both sites gaining membership is good for Buc fans in general.

A good season for the Bucs might mean good things for Buc discussion on the internet, and I'm hoping both BucZone and PR are able to capitalize on it.

JoeBucsFun can suck a ****.

What happened at PR was they made a post saying any sexual innuendos will not be tolerated and a few other things and that just seems like no fun to me . Too many rules and I guess Cook gets emotional about his little website ... I was banned for "continued bashing of the board " which wasn't the case .. I just like to make fun of stuff . Was banned from jbf cause I was a freeman fan and I jokingly asked one of the posters if he just got back from a clan rally ... No sense of humor of I guess .


Fwiw, I didn't think you were one of the worst Mariota guys, and that drug out over way to long and got pretty ugly both ways.


Thx right on

I won't be going back to PR. They lost my loyalty when they showed they didn't care about their users. A quick scramble after the big bailout isn't good enough. I'm sure nobody over there cares that I'm gone, but I'm happy to be here.

TBH, that wasn't that bad here, it was mostly Bootz vs RBF. The Freeman Civil War from 2013 though...that was really bitter.

I was on the wrong side of history, well reality as well, there sadly.

Also, DTG, pleased to be able to continue to snipe at you from close range. Your thoughts are always of interest, even when they ruffle me.

I haven't ruled out commenting inside PR's articles, as I'll continue reading some of them. I'm just not planning on having my forum type discussions there in the future. I hope their business continues and the people there do well. I like having lots of outlets covering the Bucs.

As mentioned by others, the PR board has been on a slow decline for a couple years now, most discussions have been **** to be quite honest.

Coming here for the first time a week ago, it was plainly evident that this was the place for me....better football talk, less 'preciousness' and many posters have a sense of humor I appreciate... :buttmoon:

I posted the same thing there, but it's another example of PR's abject failures to run a proper forum. How long had we been asking for moderators on a whole range of issues? Coming from a perspective that very little should be censored, but moderation is needed for forum functionality as well. I understand PRs reluctance to have Internet "strangers" representing their business on their forums, but it's an extremely common practice. From an administrative standpint, it's easier to oversee a few individuals than moderate an entire forum. The PR admin don't like to use the message forums. It's clearly a chore for them, so they do it poorly. In this case, allowing an obvious troll account to troll contributing members who have left upset. Obviously attempting to make them feel unwelcome to come back. I don't recall a time where there was an active Morgan account, and I posted there for 5+ years. Any moderator would remove those posts and ban the account as the website is in public relations mode trying to reengage with that section of their customer base.

I wouldn't so much ban her, at first. More disassociate the board from her.

I can't believe someone is so obsessed with me. "Morgan" is apparently the definition of "pathetic" if this is what actually occupies their time.

I think Morgan is Karen, she used to haunt PR about 10 years or more ago but got driven off. If that's the same person with the other boards. If I'm right, "nuts" might be a better adjective than "pathetic".

Mr. Pink: Why can't we pick our own colors?

Joe: No way, no way. Tried it once, doesn't work. You got four guys all fighting over who's gonna be Mr. Black, but they don't know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick. You're Mr. Pink. Be thankful you're not Mr. Yellow.

My relative was a big contributor in another forum and was invited to be a moderator. The forums eventually went under because of lack of moderation. They were a very active forum but failed to bring on enough user/moderators quick enough and the users bailed fast.
