    I signed into VMB yesterday for two minutes to send a PM to someone that I was on this board and gave her my email. She emailed back that she got the PM, but in the PM where I mentioned this board it had been replaced with **********. Sounds like somebody is a little worried about competition.

    just write it as

    vegasb0ards.c0m (replace the 0s with Os)

    or

    v3g4sbo4rds dot com (replace the 3s with Es and the 4s with As).

    Stupid. Just stupid. Whatever, man, I'm all about as many voices and options as possible. Another reason why I haven't been over there in months.

    The harder you try to cage the tiger, the more he'll want to escape.

    aren't Pm's supposed to be private? As in "private" message? It must be the word vegasboards that they are censoring. Screw them!

    That's exactly what they're doing.

    It's an interesting social experiment that's going on. They must have realized by now that their policies and censorship have cost them pretty heavily (according to Alexa and site rankings/page views). They know most of their key members that drove their quality content have moved on because of it.

    So, rather than relaxing their policies to make their current members happy to keep them from moving on as well, they've doubled / tripled down and tried to put an iron grip on things.

    Can anyone say, North Korea?

    Nice recap of what has been happening. I am only too happy to keep the VMB downtrend moving in that direction by not even logging in to see what is going on there. That would be one page view too many!

    From my previous discussions with Sonya directly, I was always under the impression that she was into the group thing, as long as she was the main attraction that is. Again, and disclosure>>>I said, I was under the impression.
