And does this mean they fired pluck?
It's a lie. All the posts are stored in a database (including the ones from OldRama). If I had 24 hours with their database, I could easily get ALL of the posts converted from BOTH forums and included on the new board. EASILY - I just did it here for the posts from BludNet not that long ago - and while Newsarama has a LOT of posts, once the script works for ONE post, it works for all of them.
It's just taking data stored in a database as:
Post Name: Blah Blah
Post Number: 3456
Post Date: 02/04/09
Thread Title: Blah Blah
Thread Number: 2352
User: Jude Terror
User Number: 500
Post Content: blah blah blah blah
And changing it over so that it matches the new database names for the new software, which might be:
Post Title: Blah Blah
Post ID: 3456
Post Date: 20090204
Thread Name: Blah Blah
Thread ID: 2352
User Name: Jude Terror
User ID: 500
Post Data: blah blah blah blah
It's really, really simple stuff. If they didn't convert certain stuff, it's because they don't want to, or they DID convert it and are keeping it hidden while they HEAVILY prune it.

Just because I don't know how to spell the language of some tiny African nation doesn't mean that I'm wrong in thinking that your attitude towards women is 100% wrong. Obviously, you're some skinny, single nerd living on the East Coast who probably derives value in life from wrestling matches, hoping that Wolverine gets to sleep with teenagers and engaging in casual drug use. You're literally the worst thing to happen to comics since Stan Lee.
