Weren't at one time recently BPO members donating money to keep this site running? So members pay to keep a site running and then its owner sells it for profit?
This exactly what I was thinking about and remembered what Barbara said in the past (RIP).
The whole situation is just a nuisance to me...sorry
Good luck Jaime and Michael
I didn't see that until just now. I agree, I then totally blew off what she said until now.. She knew what was going on, if only there was a little more attention paid there. I don't see myself being nearly as active as I used to be. And not at all when we start getting charged to use this, and I have a feeling that will soon come.
I feel like I shouldn't say a word, I've been a lurking member only for a matter of DAYS. But I have been watching and reading the forums here for a few months thanks to my gf Angelsmama. She introduced me to BPO.
I really hate that this issue is the cause of my first post, but like many have said, life causes changes and tough decisions to be made. Everything happens for a reason, and like so many have said already, the "members" make the forums and community what it is, not the owners.
On the note of being charged? I would've gladly hosted BPO for FREE just for the sake of my gf's happiness, much less the happiness of all the other members.
I hope nothing changes here, the sense of community and family is what drew me to become a member in the first place.
Good luck Jaime, Michael and Bear.
