The end of Wrestling Report

Post by jdalu75 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 3:08 pm

Forgot to post this a few days ago. Wrestlingreport.com now displays an "Account Suspended" message. Sorry to see that; there's been no substitute for that site.

They must have tried to post the latest bombshell Hunter and Joe Biden Crime family bombshell report and got suspended.

WR.com fora... it was great while it lasted.

What a long, strange trip it's been. ;)

It's a shame that nobody copied the database, but if somebody had access for that they could also have updated the PHP and saved the forum. It's a trivial fix, and now all of those posts are probably gone but gone. And on we go... to quote Allen Brown.

I remember it back to 1999/2000 season. Maybe it began a few years before that. It was uniquely positioned for so long until technology bugs caught up to it. I guess this is the new place. Lehigh Sports Forum.

The original EIWA Forum was one page of (I think) 20 main topics. When someone started a new topic the oldest one dropped off the forum. We were able to post replies to main topics and at one time "low-posting" became both a derogatory term and also a badge of honor. It meant posting thoughts way down on the page, just before they dropped off the forum.

After a couple of years WR upgraded to the system we all remember.

Penn's Mike Willner was very active in the early days.
