One of the reasons it's much more civil here is the separation of the political threads from the baseball threads...as it should be.




Absoluitely! I come to this and the other Yankee site to escape the political nonsense that sometimes nevertheless seeps through in certain coments. Let's keep baseball opinions baseball opinions. Period.

Not like that is any big deal or anything, just throwing that out there as I am trying to find out if there are any of the posters from the old Yankees messsage board that post here on a regular basis....


I think it is going to be a championship year in 2019 for the Yankeees, and would love to catch up with some familar "faces" and see what they are thinking about this team coming into this season....

I, too, am a refugee from the old forum. It's much more civil here, probably because the political discussions have their own section away from the baseball discussions. I think you'll find it to be a much more pleasant experience to post and read here than was the case on the old forum. (For a large part of my time on the old forum I posted under the screen name 7n9in61.)

There was a guy here who went by the username NYD who I believe was from the old forum.

Hi, Carolina. There are a few of us orphans that fled here after the murder of the old Yankees message board. I believe most of the old regulars fled to a message board of their own making. In fact, I think the message board is owned and operated by the poster who went by the nickname BiasedNihlist, and you shouldn't have trouble finding his message board called something like the Nihilist Bookie Challenge or some such. He and many of the regulars were here posting in the days immediately after the murder of the old Yankees message board. He was here posting the news of the formation of his new message board for a couple of weeks after the murder of the old Yankees message board but I havent seen him or any of those regulars post here since then other than a select few of us. Initially, their new message board could be browsed by anyone without needing to log in to see the posts. Shortly after the creation of that message board they made it so that you have to log in just to read the posts, and so I stopped going. I really wish they would do away with having to log in just to read. I love reading. I don't always have time to post but I read the posts on message boards several times a day whenever I have a few quiet minutes. I don't like having to sign in just to read. So, I frequent the YES message boards now. The conversations aren't as numerous here as they were on that old Yankees message board but the posters are quite friendly and polite here. There is a far greater degree of civility here than there was on the old Yankees message board. Even the most heated discussions here never take on the tone that they did over there. I really miss reading the posts by the regulars of that old message board. I wish they would post here, too. Happy to see you again, though.




maple bats, I recall you from the old YMB. I concur on about all of the content in your post. There is a very good group of fans here on the YES board for the most part.


I was hoping some of the better posters from that new board would eventually migrate here as well as some who have. There were some respectful and knowledgeable people on there, as there are here.


I would also have read that new board, but once it became a login situation, I came here and stayed.

Moose, the political threads became completely obnoxious in the last couple of months on the YMB. I tried creating new basball threads to push them down, but they kept coming back. I would not doubt that was a significant reason why the board was shut down.

Hey Carolina, welcome. I am also one of the old YMB posters.
