It is Not That Simple
The simple claim is that Scans_Daily was a spoiler site and deserved to be shut down. But, that is not true. The simple claim is that Scans_Daily was a democratic site for comic book fans to share interests and it was squashed by The Man. But, that is not true. The simple claim is that Peter David got Scans_Daily shut down because of a misunderstanding. But, that is not true.
The truth is not simple. What happened is not easy to explain. But, I am willing to try.

I am sorry that the community was shut down. But, really, it was just a matter of time. And, this being the Internet, I'm sure that a new one will go up somewhere eventually.
I am more sorry that people are attacking Peter David and assigning motivations to him when all he did was show up and try to participate calmly in the middle of a flame-fest.
