All of these Bulletin Boards have seen their day ! And those days have come and gone ! The latest manipulation on FT follows the boards owners M.O. If things get too heated they will just shut it down to discussion, period. They pretty much have already done that with the new posting rules for the thread in question. Who cares that the lurkers are "talking" to the minions again, there is little utility in one way Q&A. They have already called their customers names, blamed "certain" posters and a former "mod" for their disappearance. I believe this latest initiative was ill thought out ! Let us face the facts, AC has never been stellar at marketing, and having the 2 Ben's beat-up on their customers and their customers beat-up on them is certainly not a great way to go about it !
