Sorry Jr thats not a right statement. There has been some that left and refuse to come back over the take over.
A great forum is about the people on it, and not who owns it. As long as the members are happy, and it remains a comfortable and enjoyable place to discuss your hobby, it will survive. "Leadership" is also a key, to be an effective leader, takes earning trust and respect from the members.
People come and go on forums, things happen that some dont like, or agree with, and they will leave, but new ones will come along and take their place, some of those that leave will be missed terribly, as they were good knowledgeable folks. The new folks will take hold, and continue the growth that this forum needs, But life goes on.
What this forum needs now, is to get over the drama, accept that the new owners are all about its growth and service to the members here, and move on, in a more positive direction, at least thats what i intend to do.
