I suppose the domain registry wouldn't change until the closing of the sale, which is April 30 by the looks of it.

I'm not using the logo Durka. Me just the peon, or is it pee-on?

Why does a realtor post a sold sign on a property sale that closes at a future date? I doubt Chris cares if they want to get some exposure early.

That is contradictory to the original post by him:

"The purchase was completed during my absense while I was in North America during March."

So was he there or wasn't he there when the deal was made? Absent from where? The forums? Canada? Germany? The Meeting?

YOU'RE WITNESS!!

if the domain were for sale, I would consider purchasing it and converting it into a 'CanadianPornContent".

either way, if this is hypothetically true, then I guess this will spell my very last day in these forums. I shall venture elsewhere for my forum needs. I do not require CBC to be sensoring my posts or limiting the details or subjects in which we can comment on because of their PC ways.

Which would mean threads here will be deleted and wiped completely from existence..... if so... then what's the point in continuing here.

After today.... toodles.

I'm about 100% certain it isn't true.

Yup... just like the late great great comedian Andy Kaufman. Start something and just sit back and watch everyone go bananas.

"I'm the King... I'm the King... I'm the King of Tennessee...I'm from Hollywood California and we know how to act...I'll teach you rednecks manners and if anyone gets in my way I'll sue!"

They went bonkers in Tennesse over that and he just sat back and laughed.

If it's true, well it's been a blast.

It it's false, I guess it'll be that other forum where you can curse and swear to your hearts content. I like the level of civility on this forum along with the right to say whats on your mind.

Sale of Canadian Content...

How did this get past the CRTC? I've searched the web for such a site forever and now we will subjected to idiot monitors and censorship and the DHS, ICE, CIA(USA), the Patriot Act, repression of free speech and expression, the real sub-basement government of the White House, the FBI and any and all people paid to watch and save for later use. You know like NAZI Germany. We as members made it the site that it is/was. Were we asked, not an option. Indeed another example of gross stupidity on someone's part. AND WE KNOW WHO HAS DISPLAYED THAT STUPIDITY DON'T WE.

Dude.... Bro.... Buddy.... Chill

First off... we should all know that this is a joke. Even the mods and admins here are fully aware that this is April fools. Secondly, if they were really going to sell the site/domain and it's been in the works for months as proclaimed on the previous page, then not telling us for another day or two wouldn't have mattered and they could have obviously avoided this whole april fools day confusion.

Thirdly, you, I and everybody else on this site have no rights to dictate what happens to this site anyways. Unless you were putting money/funding into the site, you have no legal say.... be greatful the site existed for you to post in the first place.

Forthly, if this is remotely true (Which I don't believe it is, see above) then also be greatful they're giving us about a month's notice for us to collect any material or posts we've created over time and save them. The forums I used to goto before, that I created a new one to replace it.... the owner gave us no notice at all. I popped in, all the threads were gone except one created by himself telling us the forums were going to be shut down within the next day or so. He didn't even give us a chance to collect anything.

It could be worse.... if it was true.

Pssh... seriously.... #1 - did you buy it? #2 - If not, then how do you get the confidential details of this transaction when this information should have been sent direcly to Andem in the first place? Come on now... CBC isn't that personal and/or open that they would just freely discuss these sorts of transactions to other people such as yourself and I.

Added:

I got over a thousand posts too.. let me in on the details too :P

Oh yes.... close buddy to the mods and admins... why not get a regular non-mod in on the joke? (You know.... I would have been a better choice, now you all got my irradic reasoning to deal with )

Added:

Or am I used as a Pawn to use my irradic reasoning to further cloud and confuse other members into deciding if this is a joke or not? Hmmmmm....... *stokes beard* Oh yeah.... I shaved that off.

Added:

Or did you guys think that I would think that, knowing that you would think that I know what I think?

Added:

Silence is Golden people.... take your time to think it through, pass it back and forth between yas.... figure out what your next strategy will be.....

Yet another addition:

I'm curious... are we playing by school rules (Half day April Fools) or is this a full day thing? If it's half day, then ya gotta come clean.

Hilarious...

"I will teach the people of Memphis a lesson... you know why? I'm from Hollywood baby and we know how to behave and we know how to talk...

Duhhhhh...duhhhh... I'm from Memphis.

And Jerry Lawler...I'm gonna sue you! This is none of you business. I'm bringing some Hollywood lawyers to...duhhh Memphis...to sue you for everything."

Then they would show the people in the Memphis audience yelling epithets in rage. All the while it was just another one of Andy's acts.
