It's like the idiot bus pulled up and unloaded. There are suddenly a bunch of posters taking the WWE Hall of Fame seriously, and even suggesting that SD Jones belongs there.

KM used to be a decent place to hang out. Now it's like day care.

When? Honestly, it was a good source for info when I first got online. Then everything was rehashed again and again and they got burned with that Smokey bullshit.  I don't remember ever enjoying being part of a discussion on KM.

Wrestling is an always has been a circus.  If these people could keep that in mind and take it a whole lot less seriously, they'd enjoy themselves more.

KM was a very good site, when it first came online.  The Smokey thing blew up and affected the place, but I think Buddy Rose's fat ass caused a lot of negative waves which affected posters. 

I still respond on KM when I see a subject that interests.  I think that The Appraiser may be the Luscious Johnny guy, again.  I was actually laughing with some of the new posters that showed up over there.  Yeah, it has got a litte out of hand recently.

I still "geek" for the place to be honest with you. They are hampered by the 1989 rule (quick -- name ten subjects that haven't been discussed before) but do a decent job.

For the most part though I think this has happened before (think of how many kids were on there when the Tape Trade Forum was in it's hey-day) and they get through it. I don't care if people fight (here, there, anywhere) as long as the whole thing is intelligent and doesn't drop to "well you weren't there and I was" or "you're an idiot".

SD Jones in the Hall Of Fame? For me that's a no-brainer ~ "no". If nobody ever thought he would draw enough money to "push" him while he wrestled, why would you push him twenty years afterwards? No disrespect intended, just nobody bought a ticket to a card because he was on it.

The Appraiser as Luscious Johnny? Hadn't thought about that one. Interesting. Gotta chew on that one for awhile.

Totally agree there.

KM was my home board for a long time. I don't read most of the threads anymore and rarely even argue with anybody. The majority of my posts are results related or time frame oriented nonsense. Big shock huh.

I did however add a Dr Jeff avatar there yesterday. :)

I used to like it alot.  It just doesnt entertain me anymore and it has nothing at all to do with the board downtime, william, Smokey (what kind of fucktard would be offended by a good troll anyway?).  I just learned all that there was to offer in the forums that I was interested in and my mental faculties were oversaturated.  Nobody has anything else to teach me.

The moderators on KM are quiet, fair and well mannered.  All rasslin message boards suck now because nobody gives a fuck about rasslin and the ones who did, have learned all there is to learn.

I don't think a board like that is meant to contnue indefinitely with the same posters.  Just can't happen.  You have a handful of guys who are know-it-alls about everything and they post ad nauseum and within months everything's been discussed and there's nothing left to do but argue over stupid shit.  Then old posters get bored and leave, new posters come in, and the cycle starts again.  History is history, nothing new will ever happen before 1989 again and you can only discuss the same bullshit so many times before wanting to kill yourself.

I don't know if Portalesman was trying to help or trying to stir up dust, but once upon a time he suggested in a thread that every year the 1989 rule go to 1990, 1991, 1992, etc.

That makes perfect sense to me, just like "1960s" discussion is a stretch today because you are looking for 60-year-old posters to discuss things, I believe that the 1970s will eventually die off as a discussion topic as will the 1980s and so forth as time moves on and get further from that particular period of time.

It also opens the door for fresh blood and a new crop of experts.

Sounds perfectly logical to me.  I'm sure that's why they're not doing it.

We can get the "next generation". like Marking Out Old School Jr, Crimson Mask II, Little Dick Sullivan, etc.....to enlighten us.

KM is like a daycare for wrastlin message boarders.  That headlesshorseman guy is nearly as bad as ddt101.

The problem with that is as you move things forward, there's a lot more documentation. Sheets, autobiographies and shoot interviews have taken a lot of mystery out of things in the post '89 years.

One of the appeals of the kayfabe era is most people had no idea what the real deal was at the time. It's interesting to find out what was really happening and piece that together with the "public" versions of things.
