Thread: Problems With Rogue Admin & Bogus Accounts

    Problems With Rogue Admin & Bogus Accounts

    Let's get a couple of things clear here:

    1) All new Today accounts have to be approved by an administrator (an obstacle Talk does not have, BTW). At 8:00 this morning I tried to make a new account to address lies Chad is spreading about me. I assume Chad is getting those messages on his smart phone because he logged onto the forum immediately thereafter, but he did not activate the account. An hour later this new account still hadn't been activated. I suspect it was only belatedly activated because Chad was called out on this gatekeeping ritual you all have added. Thank you Matt for bypassing Chad's firewall.

    2) Chad accused me of making a post he then deleted. That is 100% factually incorrect. Chad is lying -- period. I never made the post he claims to have deleted. I know it's my word against his, and you all are predisposed to believe Chad, but he *IS* lying. That is a fact. Shame on Chad for doing so. Didn't think it possible, but my already low esteem of Chad has now sunk to subterranean depths.

    Basically Chad is your all's Sean Mullins. Tamir went to a lot of trouble to wrest his forum away from Sean (and the rest of the SEDOC crowd). Steve will eventually need to do the same from Chad and his cohorts, or Steve's forum will wither and die. The reason Tamir's forum is so vibrant and healthy now is because he put an end to bad administrative behavior such is rampant on this forum now. The choice is yours -- either fix these problems, or become increasing insular and irrelevant.

    As stated, doesn't really matter to me. You all love to fantasize that I crawled back to Tamir begging on my knees. Nothing could be further from the truth: I simply joined his forum -- without having to go through a gatekeeper -- and Tamir welcomed me back openly (he also warned me to ignore trolls who would invariably pop up, and they did). I have a very nice new online home, so I will leave yours to your own devices. But heed my warning: if you do not address your forum's bad administrative behavior, it *WILL* die. It is suffering already (compare activity on this forum to activity on Tamir's forum). The reason Tamir's forum is prospering while this one atrophies is because he wrested control back from administrators gone amok. As Chad's shenanigans well illustrate, that is a step Steve has yet to make.

    What a sham.

    Hey Bill - I fully agree regarding administrative action here.

    I've been PM'd by several members over the way recent administration has gone down here. I also personally believe that Chad is too close to his situation with you to continue to hold admin capabilities, as there exists a stigmatic conflict of interest.

    Accordingly, I've requested that Chad's admin capabilities be surrendered for the time being, however, Steve has not acted on that request for whatever reason.

    I also imposed a new admin policy that will prevent the 'he said, she said' situation from happening in the future.

    Confirm that what is me?

    The only accounts I have on Today and on Talk is Lou and "Boo" and RoyHinkley

    Lou and "Boo" is active in both (at least for now)
    And RoyHinkley is active here but I don't use it to post and its on moderated status there and ink kumiss it if I have to log in quick to see a picture. I use many devices so in not always automatically logged in. But I only use my home wifi and my cellular data when online.

    Try something else Matt, aka, Bill's employee.

    Oh but to fully answer your question Matt, no that is not me if you're speaking about the Rob guy from Houston and to know I don't think you are all stupid in fact I don't think any of your stupid I'm honest and I would expect that from people as well. That's obviously not what I always get but that IS what I always give.
    I have nothing to hide Matt David.

    I call for Lou's ban based on being a flat out and evasive liar.

    Fuck it, ban me.

    I just log on to correct the lies of the Bill and Matt team now anyway.

    I had to set the record straight that I never sold Chad anything in my life and I've explained that and that i only have two screen names Lou and "Boo" and RoyHinkley
    Any word to the contrary is a complete falsity.
