IT WAS A JOKE, search is down while BIG upgrades are being done, read the top post in each forum How does everyone miss these top posts anyway?jetboy said:What will happen is another site will take over in popularity, then the vendors won't get their advertising and will begin to lose interest. Simple market forces, someone else will offer the same thing for less. the core competency of this website is attracting a lot of users, and selling advertising space. if more $ is made from membership of non vendors then it seems like it will work, but this move is a change to a new buisness model and I don't think it will work. Bad financial decision IMO.
BTW if I was advertising here I would be PISSED! people who want personal reviews on my product can't get them any more.
