Who owns this site and works at NCIX? I was unaware of this.

Everyone... use google oh squeetard :)

Though they pay to block the owners name now you will see the references everywhere as well as look up Ryan Gavin on Linked in or on NCIX's profile :)

A frikin' overly cheery HR person owns this place? No wonder this site is so boringly Politically correct. Did you mods get a policy and procedures manual the size of the Bejing phone book? Or is his name just a front for NCIX?

Nope, I thought SKYMTL, our resident exterior decorator, owned this dump.

Before they paid to block the names the other owners names were a easy google search away

Anyhow, it's been a nice run of 6+ years, time to browse elsewhere for my tech news and discussion. Met a lot of nice folks, bought and sold a lot of nice gear. Much like NCIX, this place has gone downhill. No ones holding a gun to my head forcing me to stay.

I honestly don't see the fuss. If you don't like all the one-post-members in the giveaway thread, don't go in the thread. Be happy if it gets some people who turn out to be helpful members of the forum who'd have never found the site otherwise. If you're upset the new members won't stick around; I would think the fact that they'll never post again means you won't have to worry about it in the future Also, as pointed out by others, it's not the only way to win, and I know I'd have never heard of the contest otherwise. There's no reason to cause drama over this.

As for the NCIX ties; I can't think of any situation where that has been a detriment to the site. Links to other companies are still allowed. Complaints or praises of NCIX; still allowed. Discussion of product lines and companies NCIX doesn't carry; still allowed. I'm having trouble seeing how the link has negatively affected this site.

Sheesh people.
