    Default No more UDBB?

    Can't seem to get on the site. The notice says they are kaput. Does anyone know any more about this?
    Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

    This is all that comes up for me:

    This site is being closed under current management. It has been a long run, and there where some good times, but my mind and heart are no longer in this effort. I have not found an easy exit strategy over the years, so it will just come to shutting down, un-announced.

    If you would like to inquire about purchasing the domain name and/or forums as they existed on 4/13/2013 please contact directly.

    my old bookmarks allow me to get in. Might be temporary. Others can't get in either. Guess its history? Oh well. Can't say I'm shocked.

    Looks like it is a goner. It was a good long run though, if a bit dramatic at times. I've been a member since shortly after the original incarnation - 14 years or so? Crazy. Bummer.

    It will be a sad day for all as the board was a good place for so long

    Over the last few years a few ultra left wingers started slamming every Republican or none left wing Democrat on the board without recourse... Many left never to return


    just checked the site and I was the 1 guest:

    "Who is online

    Users browsing this forum: No registered users and 1 guest"


    For those from UDBB.... The twins are nearly six years old and the Foxie horse is still with us enjoying her retirement

    That board had a really weird vibe, a lot of it Mark's doing. The nastiness from the days of the Political Forums permeated to the general discussion areas. IMHO the members who will be affected the most will be the self proclaimed "experts" who will now have to find a new board to feel important on and those who needed positive affirmations for their horse, training methods, achievements etc. It may have filled a niche, but COTH has always been a better board to come to for no nonsense equestrian related topics.

    Just 13 years. I was about the 12th member that signed up. I pop in once in a great while.

    That board always had the drama going in full force. Seemed to be used mainly by weekend dressage wannabes.

    WOW. What crap. THIS is why I enjoyed that board so much more than THIS one full of arrogant types. I received MANY more nasty comments here than there; in fact, I once boycotted this board for a while due to the nastyness.

    Lori, i agree, I did like that board. I never found anyone on the general forum
    nasty at all. They were all quite supportive.
    The political forum, was snarky, but a lively conversation. The was only one
    person on the board that drove me nuts, lets make that two people, who just
    said things to get everyone riled up. I thoroughly enjoyed most of the conversations.
    I didn't go on the training portion as i had nothing to ad.
    Sorry i will really miss the board!

    The most unfriendly place I ever tried to be a part of. Gave up long ago, No loss.

    I was actually a member before it became the UDBB, before the 2000 reboot.
