No way.  If they haven't gotten it by now, they aren't going to get it at all.  The damage they inflicted on their contributors was blatant, not happenstance.  Key is they (Getty, or whoever made these business decisions) know it's blatant, they'd hoped we would think it's happenstance.

I haven't posted over there for awhile and I don't browse their forums much anymore because threads are so candy coated now days they make me want to puke.

The IS forum nowdays is depressing indeed. Reading between the lines of many posts, its easy to see that members are afraid to post, even the smallest, slightest hint of critizism will be stamped down and locked.
Well, all I can say is the people over there must like and enjoy this military regime and abundance of free speech,  or they would do something about it.

Lol... It seems that they have failed to find the answer to Juvenal's question: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Lets see, I must have looked at this thread three or four times, before I got the joke. I don't frequent the IS forums, so it went over my head. OK now I get it.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes - I had to go look it up. Good one.

I thought maybe it was "The inmates don't run the institution."  Good analogy for the IS forums, and some of the complaints, but it's always back to. Their football, they own the playing field, they make the rules.  :)
