  • The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)
  • Your beloved Boot here with a confession. The Boot tangled its laces and failed to properly set up the new Comrade user title. Thanks to the kind intercession of Emperor Tippy this failure has been corrected and the new user title is now actually on sale to everybody.

  • Well, your last profile post is no longer an accurate representation of your feelings. Amazing what an impending change of ownership can do, isn't it?

    Now that you pointed it out, it is amazing how a change of ownership has affected my view. I still have some distrust towards the staff and will eye their decisions with a (personally) critical eye, but my beef in particular was with the prior owners' ass-covering attempts. I'm giving the new owner a major benefit of the doubt here, as he seems to be going in the right direction by his postings compared to the "draconian double down and try to force things back on track for our vision of board-culture despite shilling for the owning company" views of the prior owners (and he suffered from the same shit all of us ex-SBers did from bullshit staff actions/agendas, too).
    I'm optimistic and hopeful. I just, again, hope time will tell.
    I truly had faith in this site at its founding. For a while, my faith was justified, and people could communicate and debate where on Other Forums they'd be shut down or harassed.
    Now, however, the actions of the staff, particularly the owners/administrators, have shattered this faith. They are self-serving, caring only for their company and any future revenue it'll bring in, and seek to only cover their own asses in this turbulent political climate.
