Corvette Forum - Everyone jumping ship

Hey Guys. Im a newbie here, but I've been on the CF for a long time.

They got bought by "Internet Brands" and within 1 month started streaming commercials into EVERY SINGLE THREAD.

Tons of people pissed. MODS are locking threads like crazy

You might see a huge surge of newbies now.

As DC gets bigger, there is less and less reason to go to CF.

I'm starting to really like it here. Now I just gotta figure out how to get as many people over here without getting banned.

You guys think the mods can monitor the PM's???

I do not think mods can, but anyone with access to the database can ... but what are the mod's gonna do? Ban you for send PM's to people who you know?

Makes sense ... cause Private should mean private, at least as far as 99% of the mods/admins are concerned.

I think DC's gonna need a few new Pit Bosses if there is a giant influx of members.

Streaming ads in each thread...Brillant! What will they think of next. Pop up ads everytime you open a thread?

probably pop-up's or maybe just more ad's ... a few other forums have inserted ad's as "posts" in all threads, one or more on every page.
