FT sold to Internet Brands

Does anyone know if Internet Brands is a GLBT friendly company?
If not will they pull the plug on this forum?

Just curious as I try to keep my spending gay when possible.

Good queer query. I wonder if they will censor this forum or (even better) let it run wild.

Why not ask the question in the thread Randy Peteresen started for just that purpose?

I pay for FT; cuts out all those annoying ads mid post, and works A LOT faster.

It costs just $1/month and you can sign up here:

John from Internet Brands here. I don't foresee us pursuing any change in this forum. For perspective, after acquiring CruiseMates.com, we've maintained that site's forum on gay cruising...

Normally, we wouldn't have this kind of metadiscussion here, but it seems like a unique question for our group.

No one has approached any of us moderating this forum and asked us to change the moderation in any way, nor do I know of any other forums' moderators so asked.

I encourage people to check out the thread blairvanhorn linked to. It really does seem like business as usual will be the order of the day.

Wow. I never even knew that existed !

Now it will be even more interesting if perhaps when we go to each forum in the future that it might GLBT specific ads?

John,

Thank you so very much for checking out our small GLBT part of the FT world.

Appreciate your positive comments.
