But we need more input, open the registration and allow those of us to help pay for the site to do so. Besides were else would you be able to spill your thoughts ?
I agree I get the venting but I ask how many times you guys slander me cause I called out Blockbusterstore BS when he tried to make BBV a caring company and that asshole cant even respond to my emails or my calls. Least be man enough to talk to me cause even if we are enemies, in the end I will still respect you. It has failed to this day

My point I am trying to make for those still with the company. If your assholes DM's or RDO's come and say we have evidence of fraud that you did. Ask to show that evidence and fight them if they dont produce they got shit. Show them that you have balls

if you continue this site, do it for the reason to teach the people still working not to accept the bullshit of the company anymore

We need this site because evil never dies, somehow BBV will survive.

Without people willing to pay for premium, Chris may not want to keep shelling out his money to keep this site running.

If the site closes, I'm more than willing to put up another as long as this site would redirect or link to it.

Yep. There's still online, OnDemand, and the Blue box, and their myriad ways of fucking up. Plus, we could still gather to complain about how the company gave our jobs to the "machines", much like GM in the 70's-80's. It's actually a fair comparison, because it's what's actually happening.

Who'da thunk it?

I can't believe someone is paying for this site there are all kinds of ways to start up a free board just like this.

Sure there are. I used to run this site on "free software"...it didn't handle it. I get over a million hits a month on this site.

Hint, it's not totally about the money. Actual cost for me to run this is around $150 a year if I keep vb3. Add another $200 if I wanted to go to 4.0 (one time fee)
