Build a Community for 18 Years, Kill it in 2 Weeks
I'm tired of companies who were happy to accept data, posts and content from customers and community members, and to capitalize on that and then, when they decide to move on, treat those same community members and their content like garbage, easily discarded.
Services close, communities end. That's natural. But there's no excuse to close without notice, to break up relationships and to leave people feeling taken advantage of. If you can start something, you can close it right.
