Er - I didn't even start reading there was so much - if anyone would like to do a three line summary? Life is too short!

Hmmm. Only if I write small. I can do it in four:
Once upon a time, there was an active and informative on-line community.
The people that run the site had different ideas to the peoples of the forum paid no heed to their suggestions and got most distressed at criticism from them.
They don't have an active and informative on-line community any more.

Contrary to probable opinion, I'm not drawing any parallells with anywhere else. I wouldn't dream of such a thing. Wink

Another summary is:
Owner of forum didn't like the way the forum was going and didn't want to invest in a bigger and more complex system to cope with forum they didn't want. Users see it as a "community" and " The forum was like a society of its own. The forum was a huge part of many lives" .....but the owner doesn't want it.

What are the chances that a forum that big doesn't have a few super-geeks who could easily provide the necessary... and do it for the fun of doing it.
