Internet Brands had been trying to change the format of the site from it’s previous message board system to the VBulletin system, which Internet Brands owns. When they finally went through with the changes, veteran users were not pleased. Users revolted quickly and in such a way that only an angry mob of people trying to take their mind off their day job have the ability to do.
