Last time I browsed through .com, I found that ianungstad literally copied and pasted what someone wrote on this board on his board. I find it ironic now that he is lambasting .org about their participation on facebook. I think someone needs to grow up.
As CSM said, if you saw me copying and pasting a post on the .com forum, it's usually my own and related to some bit of news/gossip. I just see it as a way of avoiding having to write the same post twice so I can contribute to discussions at both forums. That might be a bit of a faux paus but it helps that my user names at both forums are fairly similar.
Thanks for that post Chris! For the most part I don't take things seriously on the internet but when you've had to go through the motions of finding a domain name, hosting, buying invision bulletin board, setting the whole thing up from scratch (twice) and weeding out spam bots, verifying accounts, it's a lot of work for all the mods at .com and I think it nettles everyone a bit to constantly be compared to a bunch of posters who started some flame war 4 years ago, who have long since vanished into the ether of the internet.
One of the reasons why .com is much better now than it was at Criteriondvd, is that the board has moderation now. Before any internet weirdo could create an account and post whatever nonsense and there really wasn't anything anyone could do about it. That being said, it's a constant work in progress...
Anyways, that's enough for a topic that's decidedly off-topic.
