This was not something we decided to do lightly. We've put a lot of effort into making the free boards work and pay for themselves, but with abuses affecting the revenues that covered the free boards, it is not possible to continue offering them when admins have gone as far as linking their members to pop up killers. This was brought on by the lack of support shown by some
of the free boards and once they've been removed from the network, things will be much better for everyone. It isn't fair that those of you who've paid for service are getting 500 errors because some of the free boards are really overusing available resources on top of advocating the use pop up killers.
I want to thank everyone for your support and I want to encourage you to stand by for the great things to come. We aren't going anywhere and we will still offer the best support on the net for this network. There isn't a host out there that has many of the features we offer and you will never have to pay to post
, but making donations to support your favorite boards is something that will benefit everyone. For those of you who will be moving, it is a shame that some people had to exploit what we offered, that in our opinions already had very reasonable advertising. For the rest of you who've already been paying for expanded service things are only going to get better so hang in there!
