What's with all the news articles lately? People will post a six page article and then leave a two sentence reply. I think they think they're impressing us by posting news or something. It's a big deal because they can go to Yahoo, find some article that's hatin' on Bush, copy and paste it into W-E, then add their politically-novice, over-biased two cents to it. Or there's the death articles: people post a 4 page article talking about the death of a celebrity, and leave it at that. Like they're feeding us new info... 3 days late.

I don't know about you, but I don't come to W-E for news. If I want news, I'll watch NBC.

We're making WEForums the only site you have to go to -- porn and news!

Lol, that would be good. I think I may be guilty of what OZ is talking about but I only post wrestling related news and It usually is only a few lines long. So anyway it won't happen again OZ.

I think he is targeting Hobo about the deaths thing. Seems Hobo is the main one who posts it.

I agree with you OZ. I've never been a fan of users just copying an article from somewhere else and posting it without them offering something at the end. An opinion of some sort would be good.

Maybe they are speechless. Like me. If Nitemare were to die and I were to let everyone else know, I don't think I would be able to leave my opinion. I would be totally speechless because it's like, I can't believe it happened. A Dream Come True.

Let's face it, in the long run does it really matter? I've been on plenty of boards where people copied and pasted from Yahoo news, PWInsider, Pro Wrestling Torch etc. Sometimes they comment, sometimes they don't it doesn't bother me. If it stirs up some conversation, well that's message boards are for isn't it?

I posted an article from Yahoo about Marlon Brando's death because it hadn't been mentioned on the forums and I felt that it should. I didn't think of posting a personal message or anything at the time.I'd also like to add to this that your comments in that thread Rajah were disprespectful to the late Mr. Brando, I expected more from you.

Is it me, or does the pic of Cash in Hobo's sig look like George Carlin from a quick glance?

Who cares? Rajah stated FACTS. He didn't state opinions. You on the other hand didn't put anything, therefore, Rajah's contribution to the thread was way better than yours.

It's a shame he passed away, but we all have to go at some time. Like BB said, I stated facts. His work of late was awful. During the filming of The Island of Dr. whatever, he had to have an earpiece and his lines were read to him. He did owe money, he did hide his Oscars and Jack Nicolson did give him food. Sad but true.
Anyway, I always feel that if someone posts an article, they should at least offer their opinion at the end of it.

OZ, nice thread and all, but I read the exact same thread someone else posted on WrestleStop. You just copied it and pasted it into a thread. Hypocrite. :no: :)

Really? WS is down for me so I can't see it.

Sounds like OZ. :)
