Everyone bailed out and went to the "other" Monster forum.

It is run by a clique who call themselves 'flounders' they heavily moderate and will ban any who disagree with their views. If you kiss their a**ss you'll be OK.

Chupa I respect your seniorship, red a lot of your post and always liked your responses.

I'm a new rider, new to Ducati and like this forum a lot. But got into a lot of these Ģit was better beforeģ threads.

Can you give us (me) a bit of history so we can all understand what happened ?


Thanks

This board was established and owned by a single individual who decided in May 2008 to sell it to Vertical Scope.

The sale infuriated the core members who claimed they should have been consulted on the sale even though they had no financial intrest in it.

The main objection seemed to be the increase in advertising that came with the VS ownership and that VS would charge to view without the ads. VS countered by making the side ad free for existing members for one year (tho I notice this is still in place).

The clique who actually ran the board feared that the independance they enjoyed to run this board would be removed, so they started up a new board that had the same look and feel and most importantly for them gave them total and absolute power over how the board was run.

All very noble, most people jumped ship (myself included) and for a while the board and it's content was identical to how this board was until VS took it over.

However as the saying goes absolute power corrupts absolutly. One or two of the "Flounders" moderate the board like privates who have sargents stipes pinned on their arms, one of them has over 19,000 posts since May 2008.

While the mission statement places the exchange of technical information at the forefront, the board has degenerated into a chat room with many "post whores" who contribute nothing. True they do have regulars who are technicaly savy but the number of technical questions is not much more than this board.
