:lol: No they didn't. They left because this site was always down. The boxing forum there is the most active part of the site, not the lounge. Here the most active area is the lounge. There is fuck all about the site that is "left leaning" apart from one moderator.
That almost reads like you're laying the ground work for a return you know that? Softening their departure what have you. Do you know something we don't? Having behind the scenes chats with certain members there perhaps?

They left because many posters didn't like the 'hard core right nazi talk zomg!" here. And even if what you claim is half true then fucking off after jay created this forum with his own time and his own money after ESB crashed and because it had a few technical glitches is even slimier still and stinks of scumbag-ness. Who wants two faced back stabbing people with little or no honour floating around whilst preaching righteousness? Not me.

And the lounge is what makes CHB, CHB. I couldn't give a toss if their boxing forum is more active. Ours has enough to satiate most fans needs and then has a kickass argument/debate/heated/entertaining lounge to boot.

No.

Fucking.

Contest.

Who's best.

/Peace

Eh? I post on both, so I just know what you're talking is bollocks.

No. They. Didn't. They left because this site was constantly fucked, so the moderators from here set up their own site. The fucking moderators...the guys who could ban people here or lock threads if they wanted to...they set up their own site because they didn't trust this one to ever be fixed.
even if what you claim is half true then fucking off after jay created this forum with his own time and his own money after ESB crashed and because it had a few technical glitches is even slimier still and stinks of scumbag-ness.

Separate issue, but quite ironic. Who wants to go to a forum set up when this one was always crashing, after Jay set up this one when ESB crashed? :lol: Jay set this place up before ESB was fucked, he did it because a lot of lads got banned from ESB and then even when they were allowed back he ran this place. When ESB fucked off the lounge, a lot moved. This place then went to pot...and it was not "a few glitches", it was constant for about 9 months and getting worse by the week. It was barely usable for 2 months.

The thing that IS out of order is nicking the mailing list etc. It's fucked up. I also tried to broker a "peace" between the two sites, but it didn't work. I've not taken sides in this, I told the other forum I thought it was fucked up, and I've stuck by Jay too. But, it's not my personal life, it's a website to kill free time and enjoy discussions, so I post on both as the other one has some good posters on it too, and some posters who I know in real life and have known for over a decade.
And the lounge is what makes CHB, CHB. I couldn't give a toss if their boxing forum is more active.
Nobody is trying to persuade you otherwise. But they're both boxing sites, and so for people who do like to post about boxing, the activity on the boxing forum matters.
No.

Fucking.

Contest.

That's great mate, nobody is trying to tell you not to post here or prefer it here. I post on both. I couldn't give a shit which site is "better" and I just wish that this site had got fixed before the other one got made, so no split would have happened.

Sorry mate, I try to stay away from this, but that's not actually right. I took it down on 15th May cos of Rob Gate, it was down for a few days while I did upgrades. Then it crashed on the 1st Fury comeback fight - 6th June, and was bad from then until Sep 1st which is when OTH started and I managed to do a temp fix for a day, with the full fix and everything on Sep 2nd. We did have quite a bit of performance issues in the first few years, especially during the vbulletin years and with an old hosting provider, however from when we moved to xenforo in April 2016 until May/June last year, we had very minimal tech issues/down time.

Not querying the rest of it or anything - just wanted to correct that part

Fair enough mate, it felt like 9 months. It was at the point where I'd removed the tab from my Chrome.

tl;dr:

I got shitface drunk around St. Paddy's day, fucked the code up and didn't feel like fixing it until the end of summer.

So you know I didn't read a word of that, couldn't be bothered. Legitimately.

Wow, amazing news, what a badass you are. :lol: Writes a totally inaccurate post on a message board while getting emotionally invested in which of two forums is "the best", gets a reply, won't read it, and thinks that makes him look cool. :lol: How old are, 11?

Nah I just know how much you love waffle so you can feel superior. It's quite sad really. And I just can't be bothered, it's only a forum. Carry on :deal

It's only a forum, says the man who posted about how loyal he was to this one cos it's so much better. :lol:

I don't give a shit. You do. So I'd try taking your own advice if I were you.
