    There was a lot of backstory, and I don't think Nathan really knew what he was jumping into initially. You can't really blame him all the much for trying to keep the user base. There was a lot of uncertainty at the time. FWIW, mtg had significantly larger/more informative help threads at the time than any other forum.

    I'm doing the best I can.
    I think the other part is I have a bad sinus infection, so sometimes when it's like "compare banana to tomato" I'm like "yeah, not while my head is on fire".

    It is probably on the banned word list. I think someone would have to use a tinyurl? to send them this way (I am not computer literate at all, but I have been on more than one forum that has split off.)

    Honestly.. He has to for SEO purposes. That many links proclaiming his website as dead will (if it hasn't already) affect how his site is displayed on Google/Bing/etc. Its much different than a one off link/reference to another resource.

    FWIW, I'm fine with cracking jokes / whatever, the entire situation is right out of a bad (..and kind of boring) sitcom, but I don't blame him for polishing up his new toy and certainly wouldn't want anyone to actually nag the dude about it. Which I don't think anyone is actually doing, looks like all poor taste humor to me.. which is what we expect out of @Hummingbirdee haha.

    I don't understand the point here. You mean you can't blame Nathan? Or the Russian guy? Am I mistaken in thinking the removal of all of the Turkerhub links was the new guy and not Nathan?

    Real talk, though. If this site was dying and people were moving elsewhere, would you go in and change the links to the new place to links to here? I get that you don't blame him, but I'm interested in how personally feel about the move and the execution.

    Do you guys remember the drama when MTG started?
    How Andy from MTF reacted?
    I used to have a man crush on Andy. Don't know why. Maybe it was the vodka.
