An unfortunate side effect--if the SF local board stays on the DML and doesn't move over to another forum--is that Michael and DM and I have all give up our mod powers. So it'll be up to Tigre to keep things in here organized. Oh boy. Starting prayin', y'all.

Re: Resignation as DML mod

fook you sr. moore, eh ... not ALL us canucs are the bastard corporate overlord types ... like me, eh, i'm not, eh.

seriously, sorry to read this, and glad that the mods are standing up for what they believe in. i have seen what those canuc corporate twats have done to ducati.ms (the hypertard forum is the most used forum for hypertards, and is the ONLY reason i visit there) ... it sucks AND blows at the same time. i REALLY hope the monsterboard does not fall that way, but from the writing on the wall, i am guessing it will.

canada rules, eh!!!

who started the board?

why am i now a senior member... how lame.

the amount of ads is ridiculous. completely without taste and so annoying it would make me
not want to shop at those sources via the links.

would not surprise me if they started putting in porn links.

the bot that reads the threads and posts a list of ads by the subject..

Spidey et al, thanks for all the work over the years!

And ... just start a new board. It's not like this is THE ducati monster site.

Small private networks are more interesting anyway. I'd gladly follow the old base here if it relocated.

Hey. Haven't been on for a while, surprised to see this.

Anyway, I wanted to also say thanks to you, MM and everyone going back to the beginning. I started following the DML in 2000, 8 years...

I don't quite understand the VS change but hope it's not the end of the DML.
