Thread: Missing OCC

    Default Missing OCC

    Earlier today I noticed that the most recent OCC posts dated from 05/27 and now the entire subform is gone.

    Was this intentional or not?

    ABE's revenge maybe? Or did Obama finally break the code?

    This was terrible timing. I was so so close to winning an argument definitively for the first time.

    We were asked to remove it by the host. I don't have all the details, but do know we were requested to remove it.

    That's disappointing. Please pass along info as it becomes available.

    Yes, I would like to hear the Host's reasoning and why the Host didn't post its reasoning, and especially why, if the host had some concern, it was not passed along beforehand as a request.

    Well, at least I won the last argument.

    Seriously, I guess I wonder if the OCC has run its course. It seems like there are about 20 who do most of the posting and all we accomplish is get into circular arguments. I imagine I will probably get a lot more work done.

    I would guess the ****** family are conservatives and didn't care for the dissing of the Trumpster.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Default Holy ####, I didn't think you'd do it!

    Wow, I was just peaking at my OCC thread yesterday where I suggested that it (the OCC) be burned down. Reason being is my review of the forum suggested that it had gotten worse since I posted that thread just over a month ago.

    Wow!

    Just the opposite. Suspect you're not applying basic logic. A wussy:

    n. Slang. A person regarded as weak, ineffectual, or overly fearful. [Perhaps blend of wimp and ####y, or short for ####y-wussy, reduplication of ####y.] wuss′y adj.


    Expressing your opinion on a message board hiding behind a false name and never having to actually live with the consequences of your "free" speech fits quite nicely into the definition of a wussy.

    If you disagree, just try using some of your colorful language with a paying client if you hang your own shingle or with your boss if you don't.

    It's apparent what I said was true. Thanks for confirming. Thicker skin will do you some good. Good luck.

    No... more like treating a festering wound. It needed to go... it really did. There are other political websites to banter on. Lets just focus on loving GU Hoops and dividing ourselves.

    It was people expressing opinions. What an overreaction. Ridiculous.

    But I agree on the Zags comment.

    Default What happened to the Crosby forum?

    Wanted to read some good old fashioned bickering but it appears the Crosby center is no more. What gives?

    I did not see this thread until now. I agree with Sinto and ZLG. It was really disappointing to see the forum gone with no warning and no effort to correct whatever it was that was wrong with it. I don't see anything on the OCC that isn't said on the MBB. The MBB is pretty toxic at times in my opinion.

    I am going to miss the OCC. The OCC was my only outlet for political discussion since it is difficult to maintain relationships with family, friends, and coworkers while discussing politics. I will miss all of you on there even the ones I disagreed with the most. We will have to give each other a wink or nod when discussing basketball on the game threads once in a while. My home is south of Seattle and I work downtown. I'm also in Spokane a lot. I would love to get a drink too at some point.
    Bring back the OCC

    Looking like it's time to kill this thread. Sadly now it's falling right back into the OCC tropes
