Vinnie has invested a considerable amount of resources into creating
the new website.
If you assumed that he would just give complete control & copyright of
a project like that
and then pay for the servers without any control, you shouldn't be
dismayed but embarrassed.

I know from Experience, that Vinnie's communication style is very
direct so I really doubt he led you on.

Why? What could make you support it? Why is the community not served
if the C++ Alliance provides a new website - the current doesn't cease
to exist, does it?

I would be very interested in those ways - can you be more specific.
