The forum is a joke, its filled with nothing but pedants, whos goal it seems is to sit back with a wave of superiority, nick picking and bitching.

Ask Jope his opinion of Amiga.org, I believe his comments reference someones tower build just got ridiculous.
Nitpicking

If he couldn't afford to run the site and it has been costing him more than he could afford then he should clearly have said so to his community as they probably would have rallied round and funded it for him.
I agree 100%, I run lots of sites, and I dont ask for anything in return.
I have loads of webspace sat there doing nothing, so if people want space, they can have it.

I wont say how much I pay for my server a year, just thats is an awesome deal, .

Through that abime.net is worth more than amiga.org.

Try amiga.com. The stats on that have bottomed out over the past couple of months

I live in the USA but prefer EAB. For one I can't get on a.org because I don't give out my "real" e-mail address and they don't take hotmail and the others I have so, screw em.

This is a real shame as i cannot see anyone paying 10,000 for A.org it basically means it will be no more....... and EAB is surely going to gain more weight with the A.org refugees! We welcome you all

EDIT: it's been sold!! ... congrats

Somebody actually stumped up Cash money for that site? I hope Wayne bought a lottery ticket because he's never going to be as lucky ever again.

Hope the Spanish lesbians have a good time with A.org, the home of the trolls.

The lesbians part is a joke from Wayne himself. And the last part is an absolute true.

I have an account there. I just abandoned the site due trollish.

I know & with a post count of 2,937 there I was quite surprised to read your original post Troll schmoll..every site on the internet has its idiots & I think the mods there do a pretty good job keeping them in line..

also your most recent post at amiga.org was yesterday & it seemed friendly enough..why all the hate mate ?

No hate, friend. Just dismay with things in there.

I'm a very helping person, as you know. What make me sick is that some people on there who just troll.

That's a thing that don't occur here with the same intensity.

I am teh l33t powerflamer amongst you, infiltrating your 1260s with ease and leaving my dirty stamp in your latest 4.15 SCSI BIOS.

Pffft, I like it here, if someone gets 10K for their site, good for them, all I know is, bandwidth don't come for free.
