Fur Buy to return?

No votes yet

Poking around the web today, I happened to stop by the old Fur Buy website. Interestingly enough, I saw that their "News" section had been updated on May 27th, replacing the offer to sell the domain and software to any interested buyers. It seems that the proprietor of Fur Buy is considering making a comeback -- again -- and is soliciting feedback to see if there is any interest and support within the community for such a move.

A link for the mail address to respond to is provided off the Fur Buy news page.

Frankly, I'm very happy with how FurBid has been handling in recent months. Once they got over their initial growing pains the operation of the site and things in general really started to hum along a lot more smoothly. It's my opinion that in general the FurBid admins always been very courteous, very helpful and focused on doing their best -- and they've done an excellent job! Never once have they given me reason to question their motives.

I also don't see the need for a second auction house. Didn't Fur Buy shut down because they said they didn't feel they were appreciated and/or being utilized to the utmost? If that's the case, why bother coming back? I can't imagine that Fur Buy's sudden shut-down did anything but help to further anchor FurBid's place in the fandom as "the place to go to" for buying or selling. So, after saying that they were closing down due to lack of interest (after shutting down and returning a time before THAT) and thus helping to strengthen the competition, they're planning to stage a return? It doesn't make sense.

Because Jurann wants to stoke his ego again?

Of course, I could be wrong.
