I haven't been back since, no way I'm paying for that 'privilege'.
It was more about a concern about losing thread / data / reviews as the IMBB transitioned at various times. Going deep into this archives to check on an ancient thread, I found: "The Offical IMBB Decompression & IMOC Discussion Thread". Date: March of 2006, a bit less than two years after metalsetlists started. Me, I was a member of the IMOC / IMFC for at least a couple years after that.
