Their Mods must suck. This place is an impervious fortress. What a nice segway to my favourite tag:

I used to post over there quite often. It got very annoying. Basically, 80% of the posts seemed to be about Cubs/Sox in some manner or another. Plus posters seemed very illogical over there. I'm glad I found this.

Me too. I was WinUgly over there. I haven't really posted there since finding this place.

You should lurk on the Twins.com boerd, what a waste of time, by the way they talk you would think that the are the damn Yankees or something. BTW they all pick us for 4th place and say their rotation, bullpen, defense and offense is better than ours. Ignorance is bliss i suppose

I just tried doing that on your suggestion, the results are in.

For a more reasonable analysis from a twins fan, check this (http://twinstakes.bonnes.com/) site.

Do you mean independent fan sites, or a site that's this quality? I'm sure there's an independent fan site, but no other site/message board I've come across has this kind of quality

Any fan site with message boards. I don't like the MLB.com boards.

I just found this site (http://twinstakes.bonnes.com/). It's sort of like a Twins fan board. It plugs WSI as the sort of official unofficial fan site of the White Sox.

Do the MLB boards actually have moderators?

Did anyone ever check out the AOL White Sox board back in the day? That was ungodly bad too.

I just stopped going there completely because it got so bad it was just pathetic. Every single post in every thread it seemed had to do with "Ncorgbl." Some idiot with many names would start a thread in that clubhouse just to pick a fight or settle something with that poster. And vice versa. God it got so tiring.

Although I must say there are (maybe "were" now) a lot of good smart posters over there that I wish would post here. I do remember seeing your handle around those boards. Along with voodoo and WinUgly (palehose13). I was batman over there as well.

There are, but there aren't. It's mostly "controlled" by a language filter and that's about it. I remember a few summers ago there was one hands-on moderator who posted a lot much like the mods here and did his duty, but that was the only time I ever saw one over there. But people do get banned a lot, so there are people watching you. Although they don't watch very much because last year some guy was spouting off the N word and actually got away with it for a few days before it was removed.

I used to post there from 1998-2001 then it just got to be sooo juvenile over there it was unbelievable. WSI is the only website for me! :D:

http://bat-girl.com I always found this site, though not really like WSI, although you can post comments to the columns, to be quite amusing. The woman that writes the column is pretty witty and I find them each rather amusing despite the Twins bias (but it is a Twins site so what are you gonna do?). I have commented there a few times and find most of the posters and the writer of the site herself to be very level headed and knowledgeable fans. Also seem to suffer from the same constant depression and no hope attitude that we Sox fans do. Almost like looking in a mirror sometimes. :smile:

I saw a thread over there called "Sox better than Twins?" The board has just as many Sox fans posting as Twins fans. Why argue there when you can agree here is what I say.

There was one guy who lived in Tampa Bay and was completely incompetent at keeping people (well one person) in line. I think anyone who posted over there knows who was the undoing of that board. In 2000, that site rocked. A lot of the good posters were driven away. Too bad for that site.

Batgirl is a fun site. Even when she insults the Sox I still cackle because the way she does it is just so damned funny.

"Batgirl" is actually Anne Ursu, a novelist in Minneapolis. Her books are pretty good.
