I wouldn't worry about the forum being down. Worst case is it's just a sign that they are shutting the doors and keeping everyone's books. Cutting the lines of communication is usually the first step.

They got a lot of people, and a lot of people means a looooot of posts.

This forum is considerably smaller and slower, and single thread, so it'd take either one hell of an effort, or an all out obsession to get those kinda numbers.

That said, I see similar actions here on threads, just like every forum out there. I don't think anyone moderates with complete impartiality, at least not on any forum I can think of. I pointed out on an Audi forum that while I love Audi, they are a lazy company sometimes and Mercedes is much more active. Got a warning.

What can ya do.

They have hidden ninja mods,

Don't know if that's funny or just sad.🤣

Secret mods, are they surveillance ninjas looking to catch posters unaware.

That's really weird.
Maybe they like entrapment as well

I don't see the problem. If you're posting garbage, what does it matter if the one dealing with it is obviously a mod or not? The person still posted what they did.

Besides, soon as you're labeled a mod, people bug you for the most ridiculous crap.

Maybe the secret ninja mods can find people that they don't like and bait them to suspend their accounts.

* secret ninja cgc mod hits the suspension key and holds up his mouse * By the power of Grey Skull, I have the POWER!!!

* Thor looks down from the heavens * Me thinks thou needs a real life...

Thank heaven for small favors. I would rather have no activity here as opposed to the type of activity generated by Comics General on the cgc boards.


When I lurk over there I wonder how many times a day someone can post "that's what she said" and still find it to be clever or witty.

HAHA, that’s always funny, kinda like farts! Maybe I’m missing out after all. I mean I did see a farting banana from someone that doesn’t usually post here!

In all seriousness, I have heard rumors that changes were in store for the CGC forums. I have no idea if this outage is related to those rumors or not.

I love the cgc boards personally. The market place is an excellent place good deals rather its buying or selling. Just my 2 cents on it

To be honest I’ve never visited “their” forum. Anything I’d say on the matter would be quite ignorant. I will say this little dialogue gave me jollies at work today, and for that we thank the tourists for the visit.

I enjoy the humor of the Greasers vs Soc's underlying dynamic between the two forums, straight out of The Outsiders. We have our few hybrids who cross over between the two forums. I lurk there fairly often, usually late at night, beer in hand. I saw a post on the CGC forum that if CBCS had graded the Promise Collection there would be a bunch of 10's instead of 9.6's. Then of course we have the belief on this side that a CBCS 9.6 could often be a CGC 9.8.

Do they think it's a made up Pedigree as well? And if they'd go that far, why not make up some grades as well?

@flanders I think the sceptics like myself suspect the Pedigree is embellished and extended to include more books, but not completely made up. I haven't seen these doubts expressed on the CGC boards though, have you?
