    Hey we are thinking of doing a dawgshed segment on the demise of SFN, and I'm trying to get an idea as to who was there, why and when you left (mass exodus, banned? etc.)

    If you stayed on, why did you stay???
    Thanks Everyone!

    I stayed until it was taken down, at least they had some decorum about what was allowed to be said about Howard.

    I was never banned from SFN. I posted equally between the two sites when Dawg first opened.

    Since we were trying not to be another Stern site, I would post any Stern related photoshop at SFN first. Anything non-stern related I posted here. After awhile the change started really taking place at SFN. By the change, I am referring to the new rules regarding Beth "bashing" and Howard trashing. My attitude toward Stern was changing toward the negative as his show changed. I then decided that if I had a negative Stern or Beth Photoshop, I would post it here as not to break there rules of SFN.

    I understand completely why Mutt needed to change the attitude of the place, or crack down in it, and i saw no reason to openly defy his wishes.

    People should be VERY clear that Mutt, Doctor Ivan, T@H, and may others from SFN were nothing but supportive of this site and were some of the very first members. It was only after literally hundreds of new members requesting we make a forum to discuss Stern that Dawg finally had no choice but to create the Howard Stern Forum.

    Any talk regarding a board war was strictly between forum posters. The two sites easily could have lived on separately with SFN focusing on Stern and Dawg's more of a free for all except for the fact disgruntled Stern fans were looking for a place to vent and SFN did not want it to be there.

    I am in no way trying to speak for @dawg and he can clarify anything I'm remembering wrong obviously. I just happen to be lucky enough to have been here from the beginning. Dawg has had MANY MANY MANY stressful days trying not to step on SFN's toes while at the same time creating a successful forum. IMHO he and @MONK have done a fantastic job and should be very proud to be standing tall as what appears to be the biggest Stern Forum on the block.

    GReat show as always and I look forward to your new episodes! :hat:

    me neither, that's why I'm trying to get an idea as to what it was about, the good times, and how it went downhill.....I think it's an interesting topic for the show, because like myself, and you, lot's of people do not know from that site...

    I left before the prank out of boredom
    I was free of the stern world until that god damn prank. I got all caught up in the drama and I somehow wound up here...via a brief detour at SFSN.
    I've been here ever since.

    Same here. I signed up in January of 2006, but never visited again until about 2010, when I was growing really contemptuous of the show. It was great to see I wasn't alone (nobody in my personal life listened anymore). I left in December 2012 or so, after Mutt shut the place down. I'd already had an account here for over two years at that point, but I'd never used it I left SFN for good.

    Decorum isn't exactly the word to use there. :jj:

    How does one properly and politely discuss Fartman and anal cavity coffee flushes?

    The bottom line is SFN, in my opinion, had pressure from the Stern show to filter out some topics. Mutt did what he thought was fair to the show he devoted a shitload of time to. Whether you agree with the rules he put into place or not, it was his right as it was his site.

    Personally, I got pissed off when I was told "You have no reason to complain. You agreed to these rules when you signed up."

    I quickly pointed out that no, I had not. I had been on SFN longer than Howard knew Beth, so in fact I never agreed to only post favorable items about her. It was shortly after that I stopped posting anything about Stern or Beth there.

    I stayed just to drive the remaining cult members insane. I found some of them fascinating how completely and utterly brainwashed they are by Howard. It really is a cult.

    I lurked over there, but never posted. When the "prank" happened, I noticed all the fun people were gone and a bunch of ass kissers were left.
    Took me a while to find this place but signed up immediately. I got here and saw all the people I enjoyed reading before. Now I'm one of them.

    left during "the prank"
    went to stern fanS network.. but I guess they couldn't handle the traffic
    so I came here and found the photoshop thread (with the picture of the 2 kiddie rides horse/pelican that looked like wiggy & boeuf) and never looked back.
    f mutt
    I don't remember anything that went on there. It seems so long ago.
