    ya, well this is a f%$^%$^ joke. Geocommunity was owned by a "company" called Thinkburst, then they went bankrupt, owners filed for bankruptcy, screwed their employees out of wages and holiday pay owed etc - they turned the company over to an investor who created a joke of a company name called qlinks media. They sucked all the cash out of the company that they could, then ran off screwing everyone including investors etc... then a new company pops up called mindsites and simply takes over... its a total sham and absolute joke. Anyone who does business with them, buys data, or whatever deserves to get screwed over, and they likely will eventually. The company is run buy a group of people that know nothing at all about GIS and they simply whore out and resell old public data that is easily available from other places - let the buyer beware!

    I used to buy a lot of GIS data and never found anything on there of value... anyway, their former editor Glenn Letham (before qLinks) has been building GISuser.com GIS, GPS, LBS, CAD, etc. for a few years now.. that is probably a much better portal now than the GeoCommunity.com.. I used to like how he got involved in the community (GISList) and the articles and content he developed was always interesting.
