This Blog is for all members to sign to show cBS that you disagree with the changes from this past month.  cBS states they made these changes because the majority of the people were complaining.  Well, if you disagree with the changes just add a comment,  copy the list and add your name.  Evently the list will be so long that cBS will have to recognize they made a mistake.  Oh, by the way don't complain too much they will lower your rating too.

CBS we as members of the message boards are voicing our disagreements with the recent changes.

More like Communist Bullcrap System.

This place has become a joke.

  • They ban good posters & support obvious trolls (if only by virtue of the IDs trolls use to warn others) 
  • Freedom of expression has been denied (personal avatars)
  • Knocking down your rating for talking about anything other than sports

Even though me & 160 others have left for greener pastures, add me to the list. They're turning us into Stepford Posters.

I'm a newbie as you know but all I know about this is that some cool AVS have disappeared and at first I thought oh Mikey just decided to change his AV to a picture of Mikey at one of his finest moments. (by the way, great start!)

Add my name for sure if it will help as I don't care if I lose any points as you guys are great entertainment for me. Laughing

I dont like that the reviews of tab is now gone, I also think avatars should be what ever people want (except full nudity,profanity, racism, etc) who doesnt like to see hot ladies. I know I do.....

You can add my name mikey.  My problems with cbs don't really have anything to do with ratings (they were ridiculous and all too often ratings could be contrived and did not truly reflect a poster's value in the community), nor do I really have any problem with cbs moving the non-sports threads here or there, I can either find them, or leave cbs and post non-sports issues on some other site.  My biggest issue is with the ham-handed handling of the avatars.  If they had removed offensive avatars, that's one thing.  But they threw the baby out with the bathwater on this issue.  Avatars allowed everyone who had earned the right through consistent posting to express their individuality.  I am retired army infantry, so I understand that individuality cannot be tolerated in some instances.  But when a private business entity like cbs tells me to look this way or that way, restricting my ability to be me in ways that have no bearing on my posts, that is when I give that business the finger.  I don't do business with a company that tries to control my expression, and a lot of posters feel this way.  That is why I won't be using cbs as a message board anywhere near as frequently as I did.  Why would I want to do anything to support or further the goals of cbs?  There are plenty of sites out there, and like cbs says in their statement about the changes - "Posters leave the site everyday, there's nothing unusual about it."  And that is just what I'll be doing.
