1- hope all you guys keep your jobs

2- will this affect our membership

3- are they going to screw up the format? I like the way it is now.

4- can the regular players in the forums get cool new jobs with the much bigger "new" owners.



Just wondering where we apply for jobs since MO has all this extra cash on hand.



Hope this was an anticipated buyout. If so, great. Capitalism is wonderful. If it was hostile- hope is lost and screw the new guys.

And the mystery of the original MO owner(s) is left unsolved...

Congratulations, I love Canada by the way..

"Our automotive, sports, and consumer technology enthusiast offerings target the elusive 18-34 year old male. Our network of websites and magazines attract one of the largest audiences of young males on the Internet and in print." from <a href="http://www.verticalscope.com/aboutus/index.html">Company profile</a



Awesome Gen X and Y. My wife would say I am in the Gen Y...i.e. she has 3 kids. Seriously, I think Vertical Scope is smart and forward thinking for doing that.

I don't know. This seems to be their only pay site (unless I missed something). The only way they could justify it is by either raising it minimally to something like $19.95 or by increasing the content.



What I do see is an increase in ad revenue since they probably have a large sales staff with an already large base of advertisers.



So, you might see a few more ads.



Or I could be completely wrong and have no idea what I'm talking about...
