we're a community, we shouldn't have secrets. it works best when everyone's honest and open.

oh and there's gossip.

We are a community, TSR is a business. When the business is involved there is always going to be non disclosure.

yeh you're hinting. 'elite forum where nudies are posted etc' that's a hint if i've ever seen one...
by implying that you have access to certain information and making such statements like the above,you've basically destroyed the essence of the whole secret thing. just saying.

God damn, all this over an internet forum.
NO.
It is over money.
A lot of money.
TSR is worth many millions to Accumen.
Imagine if Google or Microsoft bought them for a couple of hundred million...

A site like TSR is probably worth in the five or six digits region. But not millions.

Hotmail was sold to MS for 500 million.
TSR would be worth 20 to 30 million to the right buyer.

Actually, TSR has been owned by Halliburton since 1979.

How many users did Hotmail have when it was sold to MS? TSR only has around 108k accounts, and I'd bet a lot are not used, but the same is usually true for e-mail providers.

Hmm..just seen this thread.

As I'm by no means in full poccession of the facts, it's certainly not my place to comment and any speculation would just be inappropriate.

I hope that everything works out for the best - for all parties involved and TSR can get back on track.
Good luck to CN, J, pig and every one who is currently involved in this very sticky and convoluted situation

If true, that is a rather classic line from pig :rofl:

Anyway, I hope things will be back to normal ASAP...
