    That's what happened. Tapatalk told me I could save a copy of my database. When it was almost time to transition over, they said it would cost $25. I was like, okay, I'd pay that to have a copy of my database. Then it came time and they said they weren't offering it, and that most of the features we had on Zeta were now premium features on Tapatalk, and that it would cost me $35 a month to have what I had before, but no ownership, that the site wasn't mine it would be moderated by Tapatalk staff. They were already talking about removing posts they considered offensive, including Larry's beer posts, so I wasn't hanging around for that shit.

    I have no idea what they thought they were doing. Apparently, they didn't either.

    For me, getting fucked over a barrel was free.
    I'm amazed it actually took awhile for someone to go "hey, we should be GOUGING people while we fuck them! What are we here, commies? :bailey:".

    Oh, so that's what GeoCities' ultimate fate was? Getting Crapatalked and shat down the flusher? How utterly ignoble :(
