I just noticed on TOB (first time I've been there in months) the following at notice at the top of the page:

Attention Message Board Users: With the NFL in full swing and the NBA season beginning and college basketball around the corner, we here at ESPN.com just wanted to send you a friendly reminder of our rules of conduct.

ROTFLMAO! I'm laughing so hard I'm crying!!!
I suppose as owner of TAT I shouldn't make fun of other boards, but.... ha ha ha ha LMAO!!!

TOB is all politics now. Notta one tennis post! Its all politics or making fun of 1 of the millions of Darlas. (darlaten, darlatifah somthing like that there are millions of them) i think they are all just the same person. What are the chances that there are that many users w/Darla in their screen name?

Oh, for a moment I thought you said "darlafish" :o

Now that's the Darla they need ::)

Well, there's the original Darlaten but then a bunch of other Darlas who most likely are just one person but not the original Darla.

Personally, I prefer the other Darlas, especially "Darlafifth."

Sure, they don't tolerate "offensive and inappropriate comments." But they don't do anything about them :P

I've been back to TOB two times since the USO and both times reminded me why I'm over here now.

I don't even know if I'm going to be able to bring myself to go over there for Peter's contest.

It's really a shame what is going on there. At times it was fun posting, and getting responses. But there are some posters that are just intolerable.

I'll still go and throw up a tennis post here and there, but I do it less and less.

There were some great folks there as well who have pretty much disappeared. I made a couple of Internet "friends" from there that I write with privately, so I am glad for that.

It's too bad we can't get some of them to give us a shot.

Not to worry, Seb - you'll be able to register here or email me your picks. No need to fret about showing up in the other place.

BTW - I had a good chuckle about the comportment statement, too. TOB is getting worse every day.

True, but at the same time there are some posters that I hope never find us here.

Looks like TOB is dysfunctional today. All I get is This site is temporarily too busy to process your request. Please try again later.

Maybe they're cleaning house?

It's true of all the ESPN boards today.

yeah, 3m, I just tried getting on and got the same message. Wasn't it around this time last year they did a major house cleaning?

Either ESPN is up to something, or perhaps ALL the Darlas showed up at one time and crashed it.

I was curious if TOB had actually gotten worse so I logged in and almost immediately found a post that had some pretty negative things to say about TAT. But when considering the source (I won't name names) I blew it off. But as I thought about it (why I thought about it is a mystery to me) I started getting pissed off. I can't just let 4 months of work (by all of us!) be flamed on another board.

Sebastien, God bless him, replied with his usual tact and class. I, on the other hand, reverted to the old TOB-Kirkus (I used to get in there and argue all the time) and blasted the little racist.... it was just like old times.

Honestly, I don't miss the old times.

thanks for the props Sir K, though I used to get sucked into that TOB horseshit on a regular basis ... however ...

with TAT here why bother?, it's just not necessary ... I invited the cretin to TAT and provided the address. I knew he wouldn't accept because I understand that type of poster. They'll stay in the cesspool because that's what they like.

Maybe a couple of them will be able to grow up half-way ... get a handle on TAT where they can behave decently, and use the ESPN board to be a jackass
