    Default The "Welcome New People" thread.

    The Colts board at IndyStar is going through now what we went through a year and a half ago on the Pacers board, trolls, bad admins, etc.

    So I extended an offer for their posters to try our forum instead because we will ban any trolls that try to follow them, and obviously we handle things better than the IS admins do.

    That thread is here: http://www.indystar.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1122432

    This thread is where we can welcome any and all people from IS who give us a try.

    I hope some give us a try; I think this will take off when a few take the plunge; we have good posters, but just not many that post here yet (they tend to stay over on Pacers)

    I post every so often (under a different username) in the IS Colts forum and read there every day. There are very good Colts fans in that forum, and I hope they take the opportunity to add to the number of Colts fans here.
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    Yeah hopefully some of the smart posters on that Colts board will make it over.We need more people for the game threads.But it seems to me that a lot of them like screwing around with the trolls.

    As I got banned from the "other" board yesterday, I am relieved that there is another outlet to talk about the Colts and Pacers. Oh, I promise NEVER to tell a troll to, eat something them die! 'czar.

    Ah...the "infamous" realtyczar. Don't worry, I know exactly how you feel. The exact same thing happened to me.

    Thanks guys. I started posting on the IRL and NASCAR forums about 1 1/2 years ago but the IRL forum was completely taken over by trolls and idiots. I quit posting on the racing forums but moved to the Colts and Pacer boards, and now they are being taken over by trolls and idiots.

    I had a busy weekend....Pacer game Saturday and Colts game Sunday. The tailgate party started at dawn yesterday.

    I don't understand why the Colts trolls have stuck around so long on that other board. Usually trolls leave when the team they are trolling wins.

    It's just really annoying to those of us who want to discuss our teams.

    OK, I'll give this place a shot. We'll see how active it gets.

    BTW, am I the first non-Colts fan to register here? who-hoo!

    Go Pats!

    MSA2CF and I are the Pacers/ Steelers fans.

    I was solidly entrenched as a Steelers fan prior to 1984, when Bob Irsay ripped the Colts out of Baltimore. For a few seconds, I was interested, then Bob walked into the Hoosier Dome and announced, "This isn't your team and its not our team, it's my team." I'd rather cheer for the Rooneys.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I know we also have some Steelers fans and a Vikings fan who post here regularly too. The more the merrier.

    I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I can't wait 'til the Colts take on the Pats again.

    Well, I think everyone is coming to the conclusion that the Pats and Colts are on a collision course again this year. It should be an epic battle once again.

    I got my answer. I promise NOT to use any of this language here!

    Your account was prohibited from posting after the following was brought to
    our attention:

    Why so quiet you f'ing troll!!! Colts just shut you the F*** up!?!


    Our terms of service clearly prohibit the posting of profanity and this is a
    blatant violation. Your account will not be reinstated.


    It looks like mb02135 got the last laugh on me.
