Hey guys, long time no see
Shame to see the board had to be locked down, seems it's six of one, half a dozen of the other. On the one hand, locking the board keeps the various new infos and stuff more secure, but on the other it makes things difficult for lurkers (like me, haha)
I do think this is the right call. It seems that all the fallout still hasn't subsided, and there's still a lot of snide and/or ignorant people out there. It seems that truly nothing is sacred on the internet these days. It might sound hypocritical coming from a fandom that survives predominantly thanks to scanlations and subbers - which could both be considered a grander version of the same problem in a way - but you'd like to think there would be a kind of 'honour among theives' for want of a better expression (forgive the negative connotations)
If people are stealing your stuff without credit or aknowledgement, then you have every right to want to protect it. Simple as that I suppose
I mainly lurk out of habit, having a tab open to view everyone's thoughts and ideas is like second nature to me now, haha. So if all it means is to log in for me to keep viewing everyone's input then that's fair enough - though between my job, the various responsibilities of living, and the general laziness that comes with being a 20 year old male, I most likely won't be contributing sorry to say. I'm just happy to be able to follow the latest news and ideas that the admins and members here so readily provide.
