    We didn't. In fact it had a lot more to do with MARS members coming on the BAR RC forum and treating it like their own personal selling forum. The number of FS/FT/WTB threads simply overwhelmed our RC forum. I responded to the RC thread in question and I thank you for pointing it out.-Jim

    Good response. IMO it won't be long now until MARS forum gets merged into the Greater Bay Area forum if they keep ithat up.

    Yeah I thought "we left" because we wanted our own community such that we could separate posts into different subforums and the like.

    And that our Mission was getting lost in the RC forum and we didn't really ever understand our responsibilities on RC. The forum bore the clubs incorporated, unique and specific name but was admin'd and modded by RC staff. Also, the IRS making BAR refile as a 501 C-4 was mainly due to the IRS viewing our RC forum and (correctly IMO) not seeing the "social good" aspect but more the "benefits club members mostly" aspect.

    yeah, remember the MASSIVE "Post your for sale items here" thread that was split like a thousand times? I'm sure they didn't like that! (It was a good thread though!) Then it just spilling into the forum. Glad that BAREEFER forums have a seperate local trading forum.
