Obviously the site harmed the band's street cred too much...

True story: After having seen this thread, I was just on the phone with a tech-support guy at our hosting company. I told him our loyal readers were posting elsewhere and were worried that the band had sued us. He was like, "Which band?" D'oh, thought he had noticed. But after I explained, it turned out he was a Pumpkins fan - so I joked, "See, we're picking up readers left and right! This whole thing is just a publicity stunt."

...and now I notice that we are back. Woo!

WTF is HipstersUnited? If it isn't a board dedicated to Two Gallants, like Netphoria here, it ain't worth it. I can tell you that much.

Does Netphoria hurt or enhance SP's street cred?

I'd a healthy mix of both, but hey... any attention is attention.

i think Netphoria pretty much IS the Pumpkins' street cred at this point.

Oh and I really like hipstersunited.com I can get SP news without messing with the terrible o-site. Remember when Netphoria actually had news and gossip on the main page?
