    The new changes "blow" !   As does the NHL strike....I've watched a few WHL games on Shaw. Kamloops looks good as do the Hitman. My Blades though are struggling.....They get an automatic bye into the Memorial Cup as they are the hosts this year. That will mark only the 2nd time the Blades have made it to the Memorial Cup, the other was when they hosted the tournament back in 82 ( i think). When you look at he Blades playoff record you would have to think that Saskatoon is the worst run junior hockey club in Canada. I swear the only time they had a really good club was back in around 77 when they had Pat Price, Dave Lewis, Orest Kinderchuck, and a handfull of NHLer's. And they got beat by Punch McLean and his Big Bad Bruins that featured a big defenceman by the name of Barry "Beck. I remember there whole team where monsters. Enough of the memory lane rant. Oh. By the way. This new format still "blows"...

    Correct Chowda!  It is so annoying.  One it is difficult to find the response at the bottom of the post. Two, the word [/QUOTE] does get a bit redundant.  

    Where has the delete button gone?  The reform seems to have stopped sometime in October.

    How about we just go ahead and take this thread off the top of the board now?

    You know, since BDC asked for input 3 months ago and then never responded in any way whatsoever to people's many helpful posts and suggestions.

    No need for this to continue to be at the top of the board.

    Something we are all finding out. But why post a thread saying that they're doing x,y and z then disappear never to reply or do any of those things on your own web site ? 

    It would have been better if they had posted "this is the way it's going to be. Like it or lump it".

    Posting the way they did brings false hopes of change for the better.

    Then why ask for feedback?  That's the annoying part.  I was dumb enough to take the time to offer up some suggestions and believe that there might actually be some follow-up, as was stated.

    Now, they should just remove the thread from the top of the board.  I agree with Chowdah that it would have been better if they said "this is it -- don't bother commenting, we won't read it."

    Well they just made one change - now when I get on this page I don't see Mass. ads anymore, I see Vancouver ads. Set up an IP detecting software to tailor their ads for increased revenue.

    I just checked on the crybabies (Red Sox forum) and found this.  I guess things are the same everywhere you go.

    "All I want to say, Dottie, is that I think the forum is improving overall...I think the nastiness level has gone down significantly, and the actual forum software has gotten better!"

    One reason the nastiness has gone down is the forum posts are no longer featured anywhere so it's almost impossible for anyone new to find the forums. So, when troublemakers leave they are basically not replaced. 

    I'm sure you are not arguing that the lack of an ignore feature and the completely wacky "reply" function, not to mention repeat post malfunctions, is a sign of improving forum software?

    Guys, two posters have had their posts removed and replaced with that - GregorysDaddy (aka null) and lucdufour. Am I being paranoid to think they're one in the same and they've both been blocked because of a shared IP? Dottie, care to answer?

    Red,

    Luc Dufour?  Are you sure?  Because I'm sure that TuukaFall has been scratched.  As you can see my post above "make spell check mandatory" was in response to TuukaFall and that was the preceding post.  I don't recall Luc Dufour being nasty.

    Conspiracy nuts drive me to the brink, what can I say?

    If it's in the woods and they can't explain it, it's a bigfoot for sure.

    If it's in the sky, it's a UFO.

    And null went a step beyond that because his conspiracy was even nuttier than any of those.

    So demented in so many ways.  We had simple nepotism with the Campbells.  Then he has certain members of the NHLOA who are corrupt.  And then it's actually NBC who really orchestrates everything.  And somehow all these parts work together to produce the results someone wants.
