    Well, it's officially dead. I could tell those what the DR is/was, but it would be stealing Kickback and Beatnik's thunder. Plain and simple, it was another message board, started by Kickback and Jux, later purchased by Beatnik Poe. It will be missed, but oh well, it pretty much became a ghost town over the last few years. Here is all that remains of it . http://www.dailyrhetoric.com/

    :lol 

    I deleted the boards for two reasons:

    1) BeatnikPoe took over DailyRhetoric two years ago. It is his responsibility to handle everything from this day forward. VBulletin's license expired and their lawyers contacted us about it. I figured he wouldn't pay for a license so I deleted it. Why do I figure that?

    2) He owes me $200 for server charges that were supposed to be in his name. The first $100 charge he said he'd pay me back, and I got nothing. A year later after I was told it was switched over, I was charged again, and called the host to have them delete my credit card information. I was told on June 20th by BeatnikPoe that I'd have the $200 "very very soon" ... well, nearly a month and a half later, nothing.

    Rather than deal with vBulletin's lawyers and explaining who they need to contact, I took it upon myself to remove it altogether. Everyone's directories are still there, but the board is gone.

    I signed up on the site a few years ago. But everytime I remembered to check it out, there wasn't anything new. I forgot about it until now. Guess I wasn't missing anything.

    It used to be such a great place, especially when it was still TFGen3, but i've visited maybe 5 times in the last year and a half, basically seeing a barren wasteland each time. Maybe one day it'll rise phoenix like from its ashes...
