Why did CNET forums become "read only"?

To make it the world's largest "sticky" forum note.

More from a colaboration of friends . . .

At CNET when you read;
"This transition period will last approximately 4 hours, but possible shorter if all goes well.."
actually means;
"This transition period will last approximately 4 days, but probably longer if all goes as usual."

At CNET when you read;
"Due to unforeseen technical difficulties..."
actually means;
"Nobody really thought this through all the way first..."

At CNET when you read;
"Our engineers are working tirelessly and doing their best..."
actually means;
"Our engineers are still scratching their heads while wondering how they hacked themselves..."

At CNET when you read;
"the outage has been much longer than we had anticipated..."
actually means;
"we were fixating on anticipating instead of postulating and necessitating the task beforehand..."

At CNET when you read;
"At the moment we do not have an ETA..."
actually means;
"We are still confused today as much as we were yesterday..."

At CNET when you read;
"Currently the forums are in read-mode only..."
actually means;
"We've screwed it up again folks!"

At CNET when you read;
"I hope to all see you soon on the new database!"
actually means;
"There will be a moonbase before we fix this database!"

At CNET when you read;
"Wish us a smooth transition..."
actually means;
"All is lost! Only God can help us now!"

Let us not forget...

That CNET loves the forums. In fact, when they went down, all of CNET wept for them. News, Reviews, Downloads, and CNET TV all paid their respects by sharing in the anguish for brief periods of time. We may have suffered the greatest, but we were in excellent company. Happy
