Subject: Re: What is the deal with Bonanza Boomers?

I registered with Bonanza Boomers just to see what the brouhaha was all about.

The way I see it, the people on Bonanza Boomers are upset, and rightly so, because 2 or 3 people left their site and opened a site of their own. The new site is an exact clone of Bonanza Boomers.

The new site apparently stole every idea, forum, category, and game, and they passed all the ideas off as their own. They then proceeded to send hundreds of derogatory messages to the Bonanza Boomers Members.

I totally agree with the Bonanza Boomers members that this new web site consists of a den of thieves. There should be rules on the internet against this sort of thing.

Yeah, when I read this thread a couple months ago, I checked the Boomers site and that's what I saw. IMO the original post in this thread was made trolling for someone to post a link to the other site to get them traffic (I won't name them).

A couple days ago I found the "copy" site and joined, and it's VERY similar to the Boomers site. The worst part to me is that when one of their members pointed that out on the site, the admin's defense was "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Apparently they don't see stealing original ideas as a problem.

But what tops it off for me is the over-the-top response from "Roger" calling me "Butthurt January". That person has some sincere anger issues... add that to the ethical issues, and that's not someone I would want to be associated with.

Everything you have said is a lie. There are some similarities between Brand, Boomers and Trails, but Trails didn't copy Boomers. As a matter of fact, Boomers admittedly and flagrantly stole their ideas from Bonanza Brand! And now Boomers is screaming because they've been "wronged." Pathetic. Sad. Pitiful.
