From what I've read I know you and Dave are the two founders, and I understand that either of you might have mixed feelings about handing over the controls. However, saying 'it was either this or shutting KKF down' sounds kind of negative and a disservice to the new admin, as though the sale was the lesser of two evils. To be blunt, if admin work had come to be such a burden for the former admin then the change should definitely be for the better and I think people should feel very positive about it.
Regardless of your opinion of the parties involved, a forum like this works best when people are able to have fair, open conversations about various vendors, services, etc. Otherwise, it looks an awful lot like a private sandbox, organized for promotional purposes by the owner. Now that this forum has been sold to a third party, this is an opportunity to take a broader view.
There are plenty of electrons available, and everyone should be able to have their say.
Jim just made us all feel very very stupid. :D
Honestly, I've always wondered who Jim is/was? Kinda like the man behind the curtain.
I've often wished that Jim was my alter ego. :D
Edit - Derp, nevermind, I got nothing to say here. Carry on folks!
Dave made the forum, and we are all grateful for that, but he doesn't MAKE the forum. The members do. Im not too worried about any changes at this time, it's not in the new owners best interest to go messing around with things too much. As we've shown before, if things get too bad we will pack up our crap and leave. It would seem knife knuts are a nomadic people. I don't think it will come to that though.
Congrats on getting out from under the burden Dave, you are Atlas no more.
I wonder what formerly unwelcome individuals will come skulking around.........
