You are definitely correct. When I was contacted regarding this site there was NEVER any suggestion that it was being set up as competition to ES for any reason. It was presented as a smaller alternative. It's been everything I'd hoped it would be.Additionally, I thought that the impetus behind this project had more to do with enjoying a better message board experience (like ES used to have) than with any displeasure over the organizations ownership or involvement.
If I'm incorrect I'll surely be told. Otherwise, McKenna would be better served by doing some research because, ultimately, gratuitous shots are much more effective if their basis is true.
Correction, he could shut down the servers with a snap of his fingers. I guarran-damn-tee you the mods over there would have a new site up and functioning, at least in some capacity within a day or two. And at that point, it would be open season on shrimp.He owns it dude. He could shut it down with a snap of his fingers. Now, whether of not that would be a good move on his part...................
I agree Mike.This site will never be compared with ES and if it is that is only because the people are new and mention it once, maybe twice.
People are paranoid honestly and just looking for something to stick to Danny. There are so many things that "maybe this isn't so far fetched" but there is no way he would be able to shut down message boards even if it is the "official" one. I also think that he has enough to deal with without worrying about a message board. He is getting attacked from all angles and somehow I think we would be bottom of the list.
And this is absolutely true as well.Competition has never been What We're About here at BGO. We seek to be evaluated and accepted on the merits of this site and this site alone. We do seek to be different, that is without question, but that is because we want something previously unavailable out of our Redskins online experience and not just to be different for the sake of being different. We hope those who come here do so because it is where they want to be.
Don't give him too much credit.I did get a bit of a kick of out the last one, though, as linked in the OP ... because the guy actually had something semi-positive to say about BGO. I took that as being pretty damn big of the man, considering.
