Smile Golf Channel Message Board

I notice that since the golf channel dumped their message board that they are much more diligent in moderating article comments.

For example, look how many comments have been removed by a moderator on a simple Rory McIlroy article.

McIlroy paired with Fowler, Els for British Open | Golf Channel

gxer do you think assumptions are being made that it's GC buckling down or maybe it's just a bunch of malarky from a rory hater? I haven't paid any attention to comments from other articles.

Let's face it,the last thing anybody would want to be associated with is the old GC forum.

It was inhabited by a motley collection of retards,shut-ins and people with multiple screen-names agreeing with themselves.

It was nutjob central.

You know,apart from you and Mr 3Putt.

Were you a member of TGC boards.....what was your alias.

In ways it was better than this board because the discussions were more varied and you got to share ideas and opinions from some pretty accomplished golfers.
I chatted with some really good people.

The low percentage of trolls unfortunately ruined that forum.

I stopped reading a long time ago.

Every Topic, (especially on the LPGA) became a bashfest of the players, the topics and the posters. Gave up a long time ago.

I never joined.

Not particularly because it was full of racist dickheads,but because the layout was like something you would see on the internet in 1997.

The reason the discussions were more varied was it covered all golf,this board is more specific to the LPGA,obviously.

Their LPGA discussions tended to be the usual provincial blowhards complaining about the Asians.

Although there was one guy who was a massive fan of the Asian golfers.I believe he had more than one altie,too.

But,then,didn't almost everyone on that board ?...

This DB has been luck to avoid the trolls....one troll on TGC figured out how to post 100's of repeating threads by the push of a button.

On the TGC board there was some Asian lover who had multiple handles.....I noticed it came here as Slantedeyedoctor......no one bit to his BS....and either gave up or got banned quickly.
