I just noticed the detail at the bottom of the page. There doesn't seem to be any reason to bring it up, but I am very grateful for this community.

Out of curiosity: how does CBS (or
any other "ownership") affect our experience here?

CBS Interactive owns the site. The admins are employees of CBS Interactive. It has been this case for over a decade.

Outside of that I'm not sure what you are asking.

Thank you!

I'm curious if there's something like a "mission statement" or "company philosophy" that might influence our experience? Or maybe the company policy is to just let those of us who love it here judge what's best?

To put my question another way: what if some other company had made this purchase? Might things be different & how so?

Anything like that would be far beyond anything I have access to seeing. I'm just a user like you but I have a few extra buttons.

Thank you for your replies!

I searched for an online social gaming community for about two years before finding this is the best one, so I know I'm late to the game but I'm glad to be learning more about it.

Oh! Okay this one might be more serious. Obviously, if the CBS stock does well, it would probably be good news for this website. But if for some interdimensionally catastrophic reason the company tanked, would this site be picked up by another company? I wouldn't want to lose all the info/ratings/content/lists ... are we safe? Should I not have a panic attack?

I think something like that is impossible to predict.

Correct. You should not have a panic attack.
