About

Just to save time on the obvious, this forum is absolutely an impression/rough estimation with modern tweaks of lowendbox/talk before it was shamelessly and underhandedly sold and then corrupted.

Essentially LEB/T without the corruption, in time if this community picks up the idea is to do in reverse what happened to LET and hand it to a carefully selected community member to run and hand over any financial benefits that come with that.

The forum was started by me @AnthonySmith for full disclosure I do own a hosting company 'Inception Hosting' and I realize that will possibly create some arguments about bias, if you don't like this then please just log out or close the tab now you will only hurt the community with conspiracy soup.

I appreciate some people hate the idea of others making money (usually while using money themselves in everyday life) again this is not something I can or will even try to change, the absolute fact is that companies were making money off the back of the original LET/B and that money enables people to live, eat, start families and provide, the community needs a commercial element, the commercial element needs the community if you want to be part of a community whereby making money or advertising is frowned upon then this is not the community for you and you can AdBlock at any time.

The site is currently run by 1 person however that will change in time if some revenue is generated it will be put into paying people to help out, I really appreciate all the offers of free help however any long term positions really do need to be paid when position are available they will be advertised here and on the forums.
