These message boards may be ending on April 1st, according to a Yahoo news article. There is a message board for NCT and I'm sure many other boards there. I used to post there years ago and aside from almost no spam they had some great members. don't know what their policys are today but I'm grandfathered on :~). We shall see.
Well there is just too much spam. I would be willing to pay for a spam free board where posts were all relevant. Far too much politics ...I remember when the HAL board was relevant now not a single post on the company or one every 1000 spam. Or you get total off-topic board spammers/bashers repeating 1000000 times (AMD board for instance). Paying a small fee wouldn't cut it all out but would most of it.
But the recent format changes are annoying and you don't often see all the threaded posts easily as before. Also, some replies are just gone so the thread continuity is interrupted.
