Do mods on this forum even exist?

What the **** do Trevor's posts have to do with paintball?

Why the **** is he even still allowed to post here?

Are there even moderators on this forum anymore?

No, trolling, it should have stopped already, and not many that seem to care anymore.

I've come to the conclusion that PBN runs largely unmoderated now. If you look at the list of mods that are in charge of a subforum, then check their activity, you'll see that there are a good many that haven't been active in years. The ones that are active must not care, since there's a ton of easily spotted posts that that break various rules. I believe that the past generation of mods have just moved on to other activities, social platforms, etc. and were never replaced by the upcoming generation.

This is why I keep posting that there is a change of the hairs needed but no one every wants to address this.

This is accurate. It probably has to do with the decline of site traffic as well. Why bother spending time on a forum that is on the decline? The issue is that lack of moderation is quickly driving people away.

Team USA Story Goes Viral || Proves Paintball's Illegitimacy

To Start: Yes there is another trolling dumpster fire devolving further into politicized cancel culture and Covid conspiracy theory diarrhea currently underlining the PBN Mods apathy, that also began with similar subject matter. (But the meat of the point has been removed and ripened into frumunda cheese by fan favorite Trevor the Great NostrilUpA**(sp?)'s L33T level trolls)

This is not the same topic - This topic is WHY IS THIS NEWS? and why it's sad for us that it's news.


In case you missed it from CBSNews:
Jessica Maiolo, a paintball player for Team USA, has been kicked off the team after posting a viral TikTok over the weekend seemingly shaming a child who was hospitalized for COVID-19

"Ma'am, your kid does not need a COVID shot. Your kid needs a f***ing treadmill," Maiolo then says. "That's what he needs."

It's everywhere, on major/ minor news sites, prominent youtube channels, blogs etc. Some with pictures of a Red White and Blue draped Jessica, most of a screenshot of her TikTok - ALL saying Maiolo has been 'Fired', 'Let Go', 'Dismissed', 'Removed'.

But who is Team USA anyway? I've been away from serious paintball for quite a while and I thought 'Oh kewl we finally did it.. paintball in the Olympics - It was always a doubtful, lofty goal but gosh darnit we did it!'

Yeah, No..

BUT THEN it must be a mixed-sex team with a collection of all of the best Pro's from America competing in an international paintball circuit that I've just never heard of.

Nah-uh..

Actually Team USA is a U-19 Mens. Womens & Veterans Team based out of Chelsea, MA. playing Div4 paintball in the NXL this year along with events in Europe. And despite my previous tone, they're pretty awesome. Whoever's managing their social media, creating their website and stocking/ selling merch is super on point. Probably the best I've seen, better than most Pro team's setups for sure.

That said, it looks like Team USA Women is on the lower rungs of Div4 this year. Which I'm really not knocking at all, but it does get me to my point.


(But before I do, let me remind: Left and Right media outlets are spewing into this with the very obvious, repetitive and belabored points that you would expect so puhlease stfu)


Were you to Google 'Team USA Paintball' as I did, in hopes of checking out the roster that's rockin it in Tokyo -- You're actually going to find an array or news articles from major news outlets (and Team USA different media sites) or Youtube reaction videos that people are posting decrying their outrage at their despised political party's shortcomings.
Most news outlets' are describing the *Olympic* or *Nation team of America's* sweetheart and star athlete Jessica Maiolo has disgraced her own, her teams highly lauded credibility. Not only that but has shamed HER COUNTRY!!..and must be let go due her grievous actions.

And yes, it's a bad move on her part in an increasingly myopic world.

But how in the **** is that no one who is reporting, tweeting, Youtubing about this has taken a look at who this team is and what they're actually doing? .. Well.. because nobody gives a **** about paintball - All they see is 'Team USA Paintball' during the Olympics and that's the story.

The real story is "17(ish)yo girl call sick kid fat on TikTok. Sad Instagram girl doxxes her"

I don't sit around fact checking the news, doing deep dives on stories but.. this was just too good. The fact that a youth sports club, just beginning their stay in a lower division of a national tournament has been skyrocketed to the headlines due to the pathetic and almost standard News practice of Click Bait Headlines. The lack of investigation into what's being reported is so puzzling, and reading through comments, no one has said, "WhoTF is Team USA?"

Team USA has released a formal statement denouncing all of the wrongdoings of Maoilo, stating firmly that these are not in line with the teams values bla bla bla.. I can't even imagine if one of the D4 teams am my local field were caught saying the things that are well.. normally said on a paintball field.. and then had to cut one of their players due to a national outcry for their head on a spike. It's absolutely insane to think about. BUT when you're the star team for the good ol' U.S. of A. you must be held accountable due to the children who aspire to someday be at your level of poise, candor and performance.

What's funny is we have a Team USA here in Oregon too. Careful guys.


This isn't about paintball.. because nobody cares about paintball except those of us inside of paintball. This proves that it doesn't even warrant trying to gain a base level of understanding of this sport to know how absolutely paltry of a story this really is.


Team USA All The Way

The title made it seem that this was bigger is all im pointing out.
Its not misleading, but its just i dunno. It seems one idiot opened her mouth and an avalanche fell on top of her. but instead we get another here opening their mouth lol.

however I commend the hot take on the media magnification.
any press is good press i suppose.

The hilarious thing is she’d still have a job if she kept it strictly on losing weight.

The moment she advocated losing weight over the vaccine was her downfall.

You lose any credibility on COVID being an anti-vaxer.

Edit: I dunno why the article changed since I posted it, but the part where she is now in the hospital with covid has been removed.


now this girl is also in the hospital with covid. Sounds like she should have used a treadmill more often, too https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-b1899761.html

From my perspective if you laugh/make fun of someone in the hospital it just makes you look like a turd in general.

A vaccination has been fully FDA approved and is available at no extra cost to US citizens. This vaccination, for the mostpart, keeps you out of the hospital if you get covid. So yea, I'm gonna laugh at people who end up super sick at this point. It's absolutely preventable and just keep on doing dumb things like not get the vaccine. This goes for all of the vaccines that are required. I'll laugh at somebody who gets polio/ chicken pox, etc and refused to take the vaccine for it.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
