Mixx Entertainment, publisher of "Mixxzine," an English-language manga compilation, has pulled the message board from its "Mixx-Online" web site. The move follows months of complaints from fans about the Sailor Moon manga being moved to a new publication, "Smile," which was announced just after renuals for charter subscribers were due. Mixx formally announced that the closure was due to fans' misbehavior on the boards.
Mixx has had a number of public relations problems as of late, and president Stuart Levy has been harshly criticized by many in the industry. Many expect their remaining tenure to be short-lived.
