No, he would never abuse his power! (2)

Thanks for the idea, J_A

BN, someone made The "official" Velonation migration thread. A sticky on the Velonews forum. 7 Non-TDF spears of lancy-pants is full of righteous indignation over it.

probably referring to the sticky thread back "there" to promote the new home over here.

It's cool and props to KR, but I've seen ballsier.

nice on the sticky there - that's great - was a bit out of the loop

I do not miss how a couple of people - or 1 douche with multiple log-ins' F-ing up a forum. I can be a dick and confrontational sometimes, but by the beard of Zeus, not like those trolling comeguzzlingdirtybleedingbuttsluts (to steal a phrase a friend has used).

I don't see how it would be an abuse of power. Nelonews doesn't seem to care, they are probably just as happy.

i wonder if velonews has even realized what's happened yet. unlike steve, no one in an official capacity over there cared; i can remember only one time in many many years someone on the payroll posting something (other than pelkey)

Entheo, I was wondering the same thing. To go even further out onto a conspiracy limb....the banner ads are the revenue stream for them, the ad rates are based on 'hits' to the site, the spam registers as a 'hit' just the same as a legit poster, so why would they care? As long as the advertisers don't actually visit the site and realize they are being duped, VN continues to rake in the $$$$. Am I totally crazy for thinking this might be likely? It would sure explain a lot of the recent VN forum history.
