BDC "Waves White Flag" and Signals End to Forum, Bans New Registrants From Posting

in a move that will effectively mean the end of the Forum, BDC has banned new registrants from posting anywhere on BDC.
The following is from my friend "Grim". BDC was so afraid of the detailed, scientific arguments he has made for the last five years here, that they have taken the final step of killing their own forum to prevent him from posting.
Here is Grims final post:
"How far will the trolls that control BDC go to keep posts that expose the truth off the boards?
As far as it takes, including the complete destruction of the forum.
Those of you that have posted here for several years know this forum has declined in activity and new members from the heyday where there were thousands of posts a day to the pitiful dribble of activity we now see.
This can be directly attributed to the changes that BDC has made over several iterations of new and “improved” forum software. These Improvements added nothing, yet eliminated features and capabilities, and specifically restricted visibility of threads that were going viral.
They even stopped Google and other web search engines from spidering the forum, so now you will never get a forum page returned by a search, even if it is a specific search on a phrase “in quotes” directly from a post. All of these changes resulted in reduced posts, reduced views, reduced new users, and therefore reduced the Boston Globe’s advertising revenues.
But those pesky posters that were the “problem” persisted, even through constant banning of screen names, neat tricks like creating a separate data base generating a special version of the forum for the pesky posters to see when they logged in, which the general forum posters did not see, to random pulling of threads. We didn’t like it, but we didn’t care, we kept on reposting and recreating screen names, whatever it took.
But now they have invoked the ultimate poison pill. If you create a new user name, it welcomes you to the forum, but when you go to log in, it does not recognize the user and password combination. If you ask for a new password, it sends a link to your email as expected, allowing you to change the password, but still will not allow a log in.
I have tried numerous different email accounts, mail.com, yahoo, gmail.com, and logged in from numerous locations on PC’s with IP addresses unknown to BDC, so I am confident they are not aware who is creating a new screen name, so they are amazingly not allowing any new users to register and log in, just to keep us pesky posters off.
BDC is willing to allow attrition to completely destroy a supposed revenue generator to suppress information their “masters” don’t want to be mainstreamed.
Don’t believe it? Try it for yourself."
Dirty tricks, like above, have happened to me for over six years. I've been banned 20-30 times for posting information that was readily available from credible news sources.
I'm certain that I'll be "neutralized" shortly. BDC has taken the only step availble, aside from shutting down the Forum overnmight. This is further confirmation of the complete supression of the truth by the mainstream media whoares like BDC and the Globe.
People need to realize, if they can shut down Grim's or MY freedom of speech, they can shut down YOUR freedom of speech too.
