    What ever happen to the message board on the Chicago bears website?
    Anybody know?

    I am a long time Icon on the old board, but fear it was taken away long time ago.
    mainly to Moderators who frankly did not understand what it meant to moderate
    and help control. There were all these people or kids, who didn't understand simple
    facts and simple sarcasm becasue what they posted just didn't make sense and they
    flooded the mods with complaints. They all thought they message board superstars.

    But the mods didn't understand how to ignore the obvious crybabies and concentrate
    on real trolls.

    The Mods really needed to just ignore 90% of the complaints and the really, really
    dumb people would figure out they needed to get better conversation skills and facts before
    getting there posts blown up.

    What is it like here...? if I post something stupid I expect back lash, but just becasue my feelings
    are hurt and I could not be message board super star - i would not run to the mods with complaints.

    Whats it like?

    last year they shut it down for a fb site I believe. I remember ton's of mainboarders lamenting it's loss and talking about what sites they were going to.

    What's it like here? well we ran off db54 before he could ruin this site like he did the mainboard. We survived quite well. If you are looking for flamewars or trolling, well we have a spot for that, TBS, but we try and keep it "fairly" civil on the rest of the site. This might not have the most traffic, but I firmly believe it has the highest quality you can get.

    A few no it alls(myself/Soul/and a few others included) but we all know we're just fans and not pro's, mostly just fun Bears chats/debates. You should like it here.

    Why do people want to be a message board superstar, anyway? Maybe accomplishing something in real life might prove more satisfying...

    Employers today have decried the fact that people have lost their people skills. People skills.... as in skills integral to being people.

    I read an article that new salespeople were trying to close sales only by email. I suspect because people nowadays are more comfortable with their computers than actual real flesh and blood people (in some cases, that would be a good choice, BTW). So sales had tanked. Management didn't know this was going on (a little supervision might be in order there...). They actually had to be trained to make calls. I don't mean training to handle customer pushback, etc. I mean training to make calls. As in some people were looking for the send button (like on a cell phone) and weren't sure how to use the phone.

    Just nuts....

    What we have to offer: over the offseason we do mock drafts a lot. Like...a lot. I'm not sure whether that's good or bad.

    Internet sales are actually going through the roof right now. Mostly b/c it's easier for the customer. But I will say this, the "head sales guy" at one used car place I went to was BAD at face to face contact. BRUTAL. Bet his sale guy was PEEVED at how he cost him that sale.

    I perused the main CBMB a while after I signed up here. It was no contest. Why anyone would put up with all the BS over there was beyond me. Over here it is good conversation, news, mostly well thought out debate, logic, conjecture, mixed with a pinch of bitchin'.

    oh, shoot... hell yes. I'm not talking about internet sales. I'm talking about a company that hired salespeople that were supposed to be going out and making sales. Creating relationships, explaining product, etc. They were too scared or something to do that and just did what they were comfortable with.

    When I buy online (and I do it a lot), I don't expect the human touch. Unless something goes wrong and I need help.
