Things are definitely not the same since Steve bailed. I still use the site to stay in contact with a few people but other than that this place is a shell of its former self. IB has a long history of buying good sites and turning them to $hit in short order. I wont *****, nor have I... I am also not going to renew. I will still buy from the old site sponsors but none of the new spamsers. Its funny that there are a few newer members that say just to deal with it.... they dont know what this site was like at its peak. Ahh, the good old days.
