I just posted this on Nitrateville,the biggest vintage film forum about the closing down of IMDB community forum that was huge, well-loved and old.  Corporations have done this to several other well loved community get togethers, like MP3.com and essentially MySpace.

"I consider these kinds of things a breech of trust of corporations.  It's been done several times before on the Internet.  This is what the whole Bitcoin/blockchain science is about, creating decentralized hubs of information that cannot be taken down because they are not centered in a corporation.  The ledger of Bitcoin is distributed by "mining" like the way Napster circulated music.  There are over 500 other cryptocurrencies like Synereo, Golem, Ethereum, Augur, that do similar things.
Synereo is call the Facebook Killer because it hopes to be a decentralized Facebook type app..  "

So, I just told people who would be totally clueless about what the alternatives will soon be.

Napster wasn't distributed, they had centralized servers and that was the reason they had to buckle to the music industry. Depending on the audience who under 25ish even knows about Napster?

Still I agree with you about IMDB, shame they closed their forums. It was handy to see some other fan theories on certain movies.
