Figured this would be a good post. There are so many thing wrong with sherdog I don't know where to start.

But I guess it's much harder to manage sherdog then a smaller forum like these. Still the mods there are just so inactive, and I don't think they do there job well.

FINALLY GOT THE POLL RIGHT!! LOL!!

The only reason I like sherdog is the radio show/news the forums are just so awful! Full of thousands of idiots!

So far these forums have done better well I hope you guys can keep the good work up if the site gets much more visitors.

Though everything about the Sherdog forums is annoying (yet I still look at them nearly daily), the most annoying thing is by far how at least 20 people will bash anything and everything. Even when it has already been said 5 times, some immature 13 year old has to make another comment about how much something sucks. I am so thankful that these forums are so good. Thanks to the Mods: Dothemmath, Hippysmacker, MMA, Nate22, Omega, Svartorm, and Zephead.

The sherdog radio and fightfinder's pretty good, but the mods and forums aint worth a shit... The nice thing about this site is that you can actually discuss stuff without 20 little bitches yelling NUTTHUGGER or BAN! Drives me crazy

good poll shackle but you should have included a all of the above choice. That would been mine.
Personalyl i view the sherdog forums but no longer post there. I dont see the point. Its sometimes a good source of credible info. But a lot of the time someone will create a account just to troll or post a link to porn. Luckily that doesn't happen here.

I've never looked at the Sherdog forums, specifically as everyone (here and most other forums) has so many bad things to say about it.

If it really is as bad as everyone says though (and I have no reason to believe otherwise), how come its so popular?

I think its popular because they are get so much up to date news, loads of people go there for the news and end up signing up for the forum, which isnt free btw!

The quality of discussion there is terrible, its not real sport discussion, its like a WWE forum!

I beleave they are so popular due to being around SOOOO long. Back when they where around not many other mma sites existed.

Everything is great about sherdog to me, but the damn forums. The advertising is pretty bad too though.

flame wars by far, if you're a whitebelt 1000000 people will get on your case for it.

Searching the Sherdog forums is like rooting through your dogs feces for the jewelry he swallowed. You may find the goods but it sucks to get at it.

Every point you brought up is a point as to why I don't post there. But the ridiculous flaming, like ppl have nothing better to do, has to be the worst. If your life sucks that bad, go do drugs
