IMDB getting rid of its message boards on February 20th

Something tells me that it doesn't just have to do with it not "providing a positive useful experience." Anyway, the backlash is here and people are not happy. No kidding, taking away the most popular way to chat about movies online. Nothing comes close, not even reddit. It would happen that after I watch a movie, I would sometimes head over to those boards to read other's interpretation of it. There is good stuff to be found, yes some trolling, but I always thought there was much more good than bad, oh well.
