    2 peeps already agreed with my post. They're probably going to ban m e for speaking the truth. Lol I hope they listen cause my suggestions will help in the long run.
    You hit the nail on the head @cazzy.and @The Cen-Tex Smoker

    I actually found that forum first but have yet to ever post there, due to the reason's you both stated. I'll never understand the hostility towards new people there. It is sad, period. I haven't a clue as to what really happened in the summer of 2011(though I think it has something to with the logo at the top left of this page). Apparently, there was "the forum formerly known as this forum" that was unofficial and corporate decided to make it official. I guess that is why I can see posts from 2007 on this forum when searching. From what I have read, "the new management team" came in and took over and the reaction was like they shot the forum's dog for pooping in their yard. 

    I guess if I don't post there, I can't be one of the "cool kids". I'll stick with the dorks here.

    OK, I suppose you'd have to have some allegiance the greeneggers to take the comment made as a slap.  I read it, and my first thought was, "how nice for someone to pop in while there is turmoil, conveniently, and tell the members to come on over."  What I read was  "We're better than you anyway."

    Like I said, it's a matter of perspective.  Each crowd has different assets to offer.  To say one is better is skewed by preference.  In the end, I think there's a difference between telling someone they are stirring the pot and telling them to support their remarks AND calling someone an a¤¤hole and a hypocrite.

    I personally don't understand the competitive attitudes.  And as a matter of perspective I didn't agreen with the "dark side" or "Bi" remarks.  I think most of it is directed at corporate and the history.  But it's my contention that the negative stuff doesn't do us any favors in the long run.  In the immediate?  The drama sure does go a long way in generating traffic!  Maybe marketing isn't what Greeneggers needs after all.  Just hire some soap opera writers.  Any applicants?

    Yes! This is awesome. Can't believe I missed it. Now I gotta go log in over there and follow this $h*t storm from the beginning. I'm just glad I didn't start it (not really).


    Sometimes, it is best to be in the crowd, part of the mob if you will, let the lions and Christians duke it out. I can't believe you were not part of this CT..... Then again, there is always time..

    Damn.  I have all these great pictures of my stuffed burger success tonight that I was getting ready to post....but who wants to pay any attention to boring burgers with this show going on?!
  • ScottborasjrScottborasjr Posts: 3,123
    @ddegger I was going to attempt to debut my Baking Steel pizzas, but decided standard burgers would be the order of the evening so mine are even more boring then yours.

    Wow! I got a headache reading it - yet I didn't stop. Happens every time I try to read through a long thread on that site.  I hate there set-up.  Yet there unwilling to do anything about it.

    Those guys are pissed about alot of different things.

    It seems to me that they need to decide what it is they want:

    Do they want members or do they to they want to be right - about everything - in spite of what they've been told over and over.?
    (the layout sucks, you're perceived as not that friendly).  One of the first post in that thread spoke about how great it was when all these former posters were there.  Why did they leave if it's so great?

    Do they want corporate to give them some extra credit for building BGE into what it is?
    (Did they do this?) ( why don't they start buying KJ / grill dome / primo then?)

    I agree with others, the other site is cumbersome to navigate and read. Have no dog in the race otherwise.
