If you've used the site regularly over the past 18 months, you knew it would act sluggishly at times. I got the feeling the developers have several projects and Blu-ray.com wasn't their primary focus these days.

I guess this was the answer to “What could be worse than the COVID pandemic?”

We’re all stronger for having lived through this.

Judging by the banter and morose feelings expressed in this vociferous thread, how will we ever survive if our beloved DVDtalk ever goes down??!!

Some posters made it sound like if someone on Blu-ray.com started a thread about DVDtalk being down, that thread would get closed and deleted and anyone who commented would be banned.

Oh, and this:
Another key milestone at DVD Talk was a battle with Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, in September 2000, over the DVD Release of Princess Mononoke, whose US DVD release was initially announced without the original Japanese soundtrack and subtitles.[14] After collecting thousands of electronic signatures, DVD Talk Editor, Kleinman presented them in person at the 2000 Video Software Dealer's Association Meeting to the VP of Home Entertainment at Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. The result was the studio reversing their decision and adding the Japanese language and subtitles to the DVD US DVD release.[15]
Hmm.

Do they still have the VSDA? The retail landscape sure isn't what it used to be.

It became the Entertainment Merchants Association around 15 years ago and last year was renamed...errr... (No, that’s not their actual name, but it’s close!)
