    Ken, try csnbbs.com There are sections for all the conferences. The ACC section has a lot more of the new school posters but there are some State, Carolina, Clemson, WF and FSU fans there too. There are some pretty good discussions there and conference realignment has it's own forum.

    What's sadder to me is that it isn't just threads in the smack talk forums that get hijacked. Theoretically, this is the place to go if you prefer childish insults to talk about actual sports. I think that WRAL naively thought that if they created a place for smack talk they could keep the conversation on sports news articles civil. Clearly, they were wrong.

    The problem is that you really can't just go to another site. There aren't any, unless you are interested more in CUSA or the Sunbelt. If you want to talk about things related to Triangle sports, this is pretty much the only game in town. It would help if you had the ability to ignore/hide posts by the worst of the trolls who inhabit this place, but they change/add identities so often that's futile.

    I would hate to see you go, but I understand that the bad will always drive out the good, and there aren't many of the interesting posters left on this site.

    Thanks for labeling me as a "bad" troll. What an idjut you are! You talk as much or more smack as anyone here and yours can indeed get truly rediculous. I think you might want to take another look in the mirror.

    And in the meantime you can bite my......tail! LMFAO!!! Whata jurk Chapelthrill is and nice way to get UNC fans pitted against one another. Way to go Einstein!

    I'm just an optimist I guess. I guess it is back to csnbbs for some real sports discussion. :)

    It is sad that even this thread gets taken over by the obnoxious posts.

    Good trolls, that is the funniest thing I have read in here! Good Post Good Troll, LOLOLOL!!!

    Not to mention I think there is a big difference between trolls on these boards. There are "good" trolls and "bad" trolls. "Good" trolls talk a lot of smack (which is what these boards are for) but are actually capable of doing so in an adult manner. "Bad" trolls....well, we see them here every day.

    Personally, I'd count the "good" trolls as myself, Killing Time, TBK, Paula and Kato and SAC only when they stay away from personal attacks. "Bad" trolls would be hal, sassie, and that dude who keeps posting about nail painting every week. Keep the good trolls and get rid of the bad ones.

    For a tard like hal who can't even put together a coherent sentence, an IP ban would solve a lot.

    Learn to internet before posting silly comments.

    What they really need to do is have more proactive moderation. No more fake usernames for people that have been banned. Give them an IP ban, and if they get past that, ban them again right away. Would take care of a lot of the trolls on here.

    When WRAL sees there have been 100,000 views (it's coming!) on the "Lehigh" thread, and others like it, all they hear is "cha-ching!"

    (Ad revenue when eyeballs hit pages.)

    Having said that...Good luck in your quest!

    Agreed. I like to talk sports with other ACC fans without all of the garbage. Smack talk can be entertaining, but all too often it dominates the discussion.

    That is absolutely right. I don't spend that much time here because of what happens to any attempt to have a civil discussion. I'd just like the chance to discuss local teams with area sports fans. That is why I suggested creating two boards, one for the smack talk so you and others can keep doing what you do, and another for serious discussion. Something for everybody.

    You can avoid it. It's called go to another site ------->

    Wral really made a mistake when the created this sports forum. It is past time that they divided each site into two parts. One should be a "smack talk" area where these silly discussions can be carried out or ignored. The other should be reserved for civil discussion of the games, recruiting, coaching etc. When the civil site gets corrupted by the immature posters their posts can be deleted or moved over the the smack talk dribble. I would also like to see forums for general college BB, FB, ACC etc set up.

    Come on WRAL, you can't possibly be pleased with what these forums produce in terms of content. Overhaul the site and provide something for these that want to avoid the bull that gets posted here.
