Re: [pittscomicon] Moving to Google
- Totally agree with you, Shawn. Hopefully things will get over this bump and we can get back to good times.

That's a very valid point - like I said, I just wanted to get a group
going since nobody else was doing so. And my preference is always for
Google over Yahoo - but I have identities for both sites, so either
works for me. I only care that we do what we can to block spammers and
cut down on the signal-to-noise ratio!

- Hey guys,
Like Patrick, I was asking for patience out of respect for the founder
of the board. However, that time has passed and this board has been
abandoned. I am all for one of you folks starting a board, just let
us know what has been decided. This in one version of 'Spamalot' I
can do without.

Howdy folks - I'm not at all trying to usurp anyone here or snipe
anyone's efforts, I'm just sick of the spam (like everyone else).
Also, I'm a big fan of Google over Yahoo, so I created a group for us
over at Google Groups:
- I'd rather stay in yahoo. I don't have a google account but belong to this and several yahoo groups. Just my opinion. As long as the yahoo group owner/administrator stays active and bans the bad stuff, I'm fine with that.In a message dated 8/12/2008 2:46:57 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, aharmon@... writes:
I made two groups in Yahoo (only because I couldn't decide on a name). I'll hold off on revealing them because there is a suggestion to move to Google groups and I don't want to muddy the waters if that's what we decide to do.

logging in later to sign up for it. My user name is the same on Google
as it is here so see you on the boards over there. As for Admins.
Comicon guy (AKA Patrick) should be given Admin rights simply because
he should be a moderator of some official Comicon postings and be able
to remove ones that may damage the con we all love.
P.S. Patrick, you'll probably want to let the website guys know to
switch the link on the Comicon Website to the updated one when you get
