Ditto. I've enjoyed participating here, but I don't think continuing to do so will be very beneficial. I weigh every decision in terms of risk vs reward and the needle has just moved.

Congrats to Mike tough. Well deserved payday for his hard work.



Yeah, good for him. Now he has money and spammers have all of our information, including every PM that we have ever sent.

Thanks Mike! Enjoy your money.

I was offered a job for online casino reviews.

Good luck Mike.

It'd be nice to hear from the man himself about this...I understand he may have had to wait until after the formal announcement, but I also expect details on protection of our privacy (or lack thereof) and other stuff related to new ownership.

What's everyone worried about? What information can they gather that could be detrimental to anyone. An e-mail address?

Looks like I bid a bit low. Oh well, I'll wait until they sell it off, if anyone is left.

Hahahahaa! Nah, he sold the traffic his websites gather. Your information, and the 1000's of sign ups here are not worth millions. The traffic probably is.

EDIT : Total Members: 8,372 - $280 per member? Ha!

I find this humorously ironic.

Nearly everyone on this forum knows more than I do about the internet and privacy protection.

I mean I am an analog man in a digital world, but I still know better than to expose info to anyone I haven't personally shook hands with on the internet for crying out loud. It amazes me how good at this many of you are.

Did not you all see the data mining from the "cloud". Keeriminee sakes. It has been on the news on every outlet [including Fox, nbc's, democracy now, and probably even rush friggin limbaugh] for years, if it is digitally broadcast on any leg of a transmission it is recorded and no longer private.

There are people here who make a living ap'ing, good grief.

I read a news forum. Two guys were arguing about who had the best internet kung-fu and one of them came on and told the other guy his name and street address and asked if his opponent wanted to continue? Shortly after it was scrubbed and I never heard from the second place contender again.

The mass data storage center in Utah is supposed to come on line this month. I get a trade journal from people working out there, at least that part of it isnt a conspiracy theory.

Exactly. Never let it be said that anyone is above someone like this. Everyone has a price. Be careful of who you trust.
