You don't have to be a big corporation to not give a $hit about you guys. I'm just a member and I don't give a $hit about you guys either!

To that point, Speedgirl, Sydways, et al, do a fantastic job at moderating this place. They truly know when to intercede and when it's best to let whatever it is run its course.

And clearly, they care more than the owners of the site what goes on here.

I believe that. But I also feel like they do not have quite the same authority that they once did. Perhaps I am wrong. I do appreciate what those two do.

I sensed a decrease in locks, time outs, etc. I did notice that Speedy locked a thread that had deteriorated pretty badly a few days ago.

Keep checking. They are buying up forums at the rate of several per month.

It's not just OSO.

I visit ClubLexus every once in a while, and that site is slower than chit. (In IB's defense, I think that one's always been pretty slow.)

I also used to be pretty active on Rennlist, but not since I sold my Porsche. I just popped in over there, and in the help forum there's a two page thread exactly like this one. Here's a quote from that thread:

"I hate to say it but since John D sold Rennlist it has had several problems regarding performance..."

Sound familiar? Seems like IB is capable of phucking up every forum they buy....not just this one.
