Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

I have zero knowledge of U.S. law, but it seems to me the first duty of the broadcaster should be to the community, not to its advertisers or its shareholders. The radio frequency spectrum is public property. Anyone licensed to have exclusive use of a frequency within a community should be obligated to provide a service to that community. If they can't make a profit doing that they shouldn't be in business. Let someone else use that frequency.

In short. Stations have no obligation to the community of license any more.
