      😂 exactly!
      Memorare, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.

        You shouldn't be looking at his font! That's the sort of thing that gets a nice girl into trouble... 😆

                I'm confused.

                So the original YesFans guy completely shut down his message board, and then got angry because somebody else came along and started a similar message board?

                How much different could it be?
                It's a message board.
                About Yes.

                There's old albums and new albums. And there's old band members and new members.

                That's the message board.

                    OMG, this is so apt.

                    From my perspective, it was very nice of Tim to have built a Yes House, and let people visit anytime they wanted.

                    But Tim decided he was tired of it all, and rather than selling the house, or even just giving it away, he announced he'd be tearing the house down completely. As the owner of the house, he didn't want anyone else to enjoy it anymore.

                    John became a "site angel", and erected a similar house, and invited everyone over to the New house. Although he was new to this House Hosting thing, he dove in head first, and figured out how to build it and keep the lights on.

                    I'm reminded of how The Cavern Club in Liverpool survived for years as the "birthplace of The Beatles". The club closed in March 1973 after British Rail made a "compulsory purchase" of the warehouses over the basement club in order to build a ventilation shaft for the new underground railway Merseyrail. This, however, was never built and the area was turned into a car park.

                    Soon after the Cavern club closed in 1973, a new Cavern club opened at 7 Mathew Street, later renamed the Revolution Club. This club would later shut down and be reopened as Erics, which itself became a notable local music venue in the late 1970s.

                    On 7 December 1981 plans were revealed to excavate the buried remains of the Cavern Club cellar. It would form part of a £7-million redevelopment project of the former warehouse site of 8-12 Mathew Street which had housed the Cavern Club up until its closure in 1973. However, on 23 June 1982 it was announced by the project architect David Backhouse, that the plans to excavate and re-open the Cavern Club in its original form would be impossible for structural reasons. Tests had revealed that the arches of the old cellar had been too badly damaged during the demolition of the ground floor of the Cavern Club and the warehouses above.

                    5,000 bricks from the damaged archways of the original cellar area of the Cavern Club went on sale at £5 each, complete with an authentication plate signed by former Cavern Club owner Ray McFall. Proceeds from the sale of the 5,000 bricks went to Strawberry Field Children's home.

                    Prior to the Cavern Club's opening ceremony, over 100 musicians from the 1960s Mersey Beat era were invited to sign the wall at the back of the Cavern's stage, a tradition which began in the early days of the Jazz bands in the 1950s and continued through the '60s and '70s. A further 15,000 bricks from the Cavern site were used on the authentic reconstruction of the Cavern Club within the redevelopment.

                    The Cavern Club now sits at a 90 degree angle to the original and covers 70% of the original Cavern footprint, the stage is not far from the original location, and the 'Live Lounge' is an exact replica of the original, using as many of the old bricks as possible.
