Bad situation, I wish D and everyone there the best. Really sucks.
Days of the interwebz being 'free' are long gone. Whether that's part of the conspiracy, who knows? Could be ~ nippin' things in the bud, so to speak.
The angels of advertising have much to fear, to wit, the IRS bs is prolly only the very tip of the iceberg.
We'll be going back to the days of Relay Internet Messaging (RIME) before it's all over.
And these advertisers...are their hands clean?
Moot point, US ~ only way to fight ddos attacks is with $$ ~ only way to generate bux outta' someone else's pocket is advertising ~ he who has the gold rules, eh?
Oh, you could make it 'private' ~ but there goes the AC posting ~ something that's the bread and butter of CT forums. And the private ones won't last long once the server hosts start enforcing the fine print that's ALREADY in their TOS.
Before it's over we'll be back to exchanging packets of info pc to pc ~ just like the old days.
I know, catch 22...so, I can pm and get my point across...adult style!
