I think the board is just going through the expected growing pains associated with a massive series of changes that nobody really saw coming.
Nobody expected the board to go down for a month straight.
Nobody expected the entire archive to dissapear.
Nobody expected Dan J. to pass away.
Nobody expected Scott to depart so suddenly.
Nobody expected to see one of the most villified shows on the forum become an intergral part of the parent company's business concept.
Now, think about that. That is a TON of change in just a few short months. No way we'd get through all of that without some kickback In the end, I think folks will adjust and, most will respond to the new order of things. That goes for both the members and the leadership.
Speaking of those two entities, there's something that needs pointing out. For the leadership, the hostility you are seeing just part of what's great about this board. While it sucks to try to break through, you have to realize that it's nothing more than a healthy defense mechanism that has protected this place for years. Some folks might not know this: back in the day I remember Dan telling me (I want to say in a PM I sent him regarding a real mall-ninja jackwagon who was spouting off like the Dalai Lama of guns) that he was going to let the members kick this particular guy around for a little while longer before banning him. He understood that no fast banning would be as effective at keeping a numbskull from trying to re-join under a new screen name better than letting this fraternity of shooters burn him at the stake and then piss on his corpse. That same wolf pack mentality has quickly dispatched many anal orifices in the course of this forum's history. Again, it may suck now, but if you grow into it, it will suit your needs better than you realize.

I think there's been a lot of over-reacting lately, and it would be good for all of us to calm down and back off a bit.
