1) I don't know. I'm still "descovering" BW and it is a bit harder there to coordinate.

2) I also believe that C$ will, sooner or later, start to introduce restrictions on some options, in order to force people to pay them. At the end of the line, it was sold for more than 7 millions of $, so there has to be some income in return. My capitalistic logic is telling me that.

But, my question is, why people here are arguing so much about this and that? Do we have some C$ administrators and owners here to whom we can speak directly? No. So, we are having kind of philosophical "feast" going on here.

ChezBoris:

1. If you have any suggestions, or even skills, why not contribute them to BeWelcome to make it more to your liking?

2. Most people having issues with CS have issues with their disrespect for privacy. In this context your suggestion to backup all data and to "make it available" doesn't make any sense. If you want to back up you CS data: File | Save AS | complete webpage in your browser.

"2: i like it, but as cs owns our digital content due to new tou, it's hard to believe that other sites as bw can handle them without risking actions from cs. "

;-))

That is exactly the sort of case concerning user content that CS would immediately lose. But they would never take it to court unless they are even stupider than they seem. (Yes, I know.)
