As an insider, and champion boarder poster, I have to say it's some of everything listed. Where oh where will I find another sandbox where I can artificially run up the "hits" and be an obnoxious butthead without being moderated like the others? It sure pays to have an "inside" with MX. But, whhhaaaaa!, my special staus has disappeared and now I've taken my marbles and gone home.

Well, if the Repugs had any facts and not just talking points, maybe they could carry on a discussion, but they don't and then they evolve into the BS you now see on the Asheville Forum! Repugs just can't defend their accussation, lies, innuendo, disinformation because Limbaugh, Beck and the rest of Fox Noise never tells the truth, just propaganda which they can't back up!

MtnXpress is very biased and they censor comments that do not support the static lieberal agenda. They actually ban people from posting. They suppress freedom of speech. As a former contract advertiser there I refuse now, and dont even read it anymore.

AC-T also has some problems along these lines. There is a glitch now since their new website design that prevents a subscriber to read and post comments there. Have not been able to get this problem fixed but will soon.

Ghost Dog, pray tell just what points do you want to debate? That Mountain Express is as boring and predictably leftwing as you are?

I'd have to say it's "all the above". They do ban conservative posts there. They seem to have a small club of like-minded liberal 20-somethings and no one else need apply. They want to keep it young and stupid. They've gotten their wish now. It's even more boring than it ever was with maybe 3 people posting there. It looks like the infamous "Piffy" has even flown the coop,or finally banned -- which he richly deserved. It seemed to really go to hades when Piffy admitted he was living in an "alternative life style" with Ken the movie guy. That thread was removed soon after and the entire thread retired. In-house protection, you see.

Oh well. Even in a controlled environment like MX Forums, capitalism and choice will win out. Good riddance. If they had only been fair from the start they would probably keep going strong.

There are a few problems with Mtn Xpress forums. First and foremost the topics are boring. The posts are usually few and far between. Who wants to check back every 3 or 5 days to see if there's a response to your post? The posters appear to think they have a rapier which they unfortunately do not possess. It seems very controlled, stilted and a little desperate that these few interested posters can maintain a place of their "own". It's all yours.

Exactly! And I just noticed that Steve Shanafelt has folded his Spartanburg Spark website. So it looks like he really is unemployed now...and probably unemployable except in the very narrow ways he "worked" in the past. Oh well. I agree. Who wants to post on a contrived forum like MX when only3peoplepostregularly and you have to wait days for a followup to a post. MX forums are boring. Intractably so.

I tried postin' there once, but apparently they could not handle the truth, as I was pointing out that Obama is a lying POS Communist, but they don't want to hear that and the post was removed and I haven't gone back sense.

We are pretty sensitive over at MX. I see that now, from a distance. And isn't it a hoot that we act like we areall about "free" speech? Well it's free speech as long as it's in agreement with MX, which means very leftwing. Kind of fascist now that I look at it,from afar.
