Kimkins Bannings Pick Up Speed

Reportedly, there have been a large number of banning over at Kimkins today. Anybody that mentions Tipsy or another profilic member that was banned today is immediately terminated. There was also a "post bombing" encouraging people to leave, and surely this poster was also immediately banned.

There can not be a lot of posters left over there, and most of the admins are gone. Supposedly, only the Kimmer herself, Singingass and the sockpuppet lasttime4me remain. Tarvos{k} might still be there but doesn't post lately.

Can we expect that Kimkins.con is near its end? Tipsy reported that the Kimmer recently told her that Kimkins' future is now uncertain. While we can not believe anything that Kimmer says, she might be right this time. With no more funds coming in (credit card payment is still not accepted on Kimkins) there is no purpose for the board to exist. Existing members do not bring in any money and the only purpose for the website is to get new members signing up.

Heidi's money is frozen.

She's been forced to take only checks or money orders, and as you mentioned in another posting, that really cuts down on people joining on impulse.

I don't know what sort of payment arrangements she has for her site, but I know many websites that also host forums need to pay monthly because of fluctuating bandwidth issues.

"With no more funds coming in (credit card payment is still not accepted on Kimkins) there is no purpose for the board to exist."

I think the end may be very near for the Kimkins website. Don't it just break our hearts? ;-)
