In

You cannot post about anything because in a few minutes you get a sip barging in.

It does no good to RA them as an alter. Perhaps this will get the mods attention.

....so instead of just ignoring the pathetic 'sips and letting them continue to prove that they're a bunch of turds to everyone else, the plan is to run away?

I rarely post, but count me out of this stupid idea.

This isn’t going to go the way you all think it will.

I guess some have forgotten what our original attitude was on the rant.

Who says we're running away? Have you seen how hard they're melting when this hasn't even started yet? Not to mention if the vote goes the way I think it will the NUCLEAR melt that will happen when we put the game thread for the season opener here and not on the Score Board?

You mean to do things that pissed them off to no end causing melts? I don't see what's changed...or have you forgotten when we would spontaneously coordinate group trolling efforts on one fanbase at a time (that's where the whole "jizzing on the Columbia Statehouse" troll started against South Carolina).

re: Proposed moratorium on Rant posting
You aren’t going to piss anyone off by leaving. People will just create A&M alters as strawmen to fight. It’s a pathology you see in texags. It’s not unique.

The rant is a containment board. No one cares if you leave.

I’ve changed mind. I’m against this. I don’t think it will have the effect you think it will.

It already has. They're melting and coming unglued. They'll REALLY lose it on August 29th where the only real game thread for our opener is here.

re: Proposed moratorium on Rant posting
I'm not really a big contributor on this board or the rant for that matter from an overall standpoint but I disagree that a boycott is going to make anyone melt.

It will be amusing to see the reaction and the attempts to bait responses but no one is getting butt hurt over the lack of A&M posts or replies.

To be honest it feels a little like admitting defeat.. complaining about the lack of moderation and then 'taking our ball and going home.'

Anyways, I know it doesn't really matter but count me out. I'll take whatever ban as a show of difference in opinion from the rest of you.

Good luck.

There's no ban if you decide you're out from the beginning. That was made clear.

We used to win the offseason, now were running away scared?

Please put me in the "This is the dumbest shite our fanbase ever did(including hissing)/frick No" category.

re: Proposed moratorium on Rant posting
Like I mentioned earlier: The clear issue is the infiltration of horns (and the LSU kids who want to be just like ‘em).
It’s next to impossible to interact with others, since they flock to any and all A&M posts like cockroaches.

There isn’t another fan base that’s had their OOC rivals glom onto ‘em the way the horns have us.
Not Florida/FSU. Not Mizzou/Kansas. Not Georgia/GA Tech. Not Kentucky/Louisville. Not Arkansas/t.u.. Not even Clemson/USC.
Every single Ag thread is hijacked by sips.

I’ve said all along the best approach is for Ags to ignore their comments, en masse.
But people are going to do what they want to do, and our fans ultimately respond.
That’s their call; no one elected me Message Board Despot .

But giving these lonely orange losers an opportunity to argue does nothing but keep those fools around.
And since the moderators aren’t interested in enforcing the “no alters”/“no attacks” rules that they themselves have established (it’s not my board; if that’s how they want to run it, so be it), the only answer is to ignore.

Geez I wish the same Ags would stop jumping to the horn/horn wannabe LSU bait every stinkin’ time.
But to each his own.

I was right to say hell no to this. It is cowardice and quite literally taking your ball and going home when things don’t go your way.

No one is melting. They are laughing and rightly so. You have taken a smack talk board too seriously and let it get to you.

Y’all do whatever but I’m going to hang around, talk football smack, laugh, and enjoy tRant for what it is.

re: Proposed moratorium on Rant posting
Chicken has made it clear, if we ra’d things like LSU fans do we would have better moderation and fewer horn trolls.

LSU fans quickly ra the crap out of anything or anyone that hurts their feelings, admins are instructed to let the ra’s dictate what goes or stays on the rant. Our fans just stubbornly refuse to ra like the LSU fans do

This does not mean to RA ANYTHING, but troll threads and things that are offensive and that violate forum rules are what the RA buttons exist for, and admins instructed us to use this function more to help them
