Not to take away from the scintillating conversation of "who's who" but here's a random blast from the past!

Hi All,

 

This is just an update to tell you what is going on and my version of events that transpired.  For the past few months a few of our members have chosen get behind proxies, change their user names and create some havoc, some of it well-intentioned and funny, but some of it really annoying a lot of our regular members.  We were also hacked by an outside hacker, who went into our admin tool and created admin users.  Last week while I was on vacation, with only my phone to access the site (the mobile version of the site is very primitive) I was alerted by another admin to a picture that was posted, of a child.  It looked slightly racy to me, and given the member who posted it had his member name "spoofed" by some of these other people,   Naturally, given the events of the past few weeks, I was concerned.  I spoke to another admin, and requested they temporarily ban all of these people.  Not knowing where this was coming from, fearing this was the tip of the iceberg, and seeing my own career and livelihood go down the toilet, over a Rush messageboard, this was my rash, harsh action.

 

I discovered the picture was an innocent picture posted by a long-time member of his child.  Unfortunately, given the circumstances, I can't take back my actions.  All I can say is I consulted 5-6 people, all while running around the Disney parks of Orlando in 90 degree heat in the sun on my phone to my family's dismay and did my due diligence before I acted.  We all agreed then.  Regardless I apologize to JARG or 200022200 (whatever number you are today) for acting so quickly, but I think all of you can see where I am coming from.

 

I may have said some things to all of you that I regretted, and frankly I may have not behaved admirably during this time.  Again, this board is something I have up out of the goodness of my heart, nothing more.  I'm probably just continuing something that already should have been dead long ago.

 

The bannings are being lifted, slowly.  I will keep this board going a little while to allow you all to comment, but likely it will go away, or go to whomever wants to keep it running.  I did accuse Mike/smoog/whatever other name he goes by here of posting that photo and abusing the board in the past with posting pics of cut up dead people, but I take that back too.  There is no evidence of that

 

Regardless, this board will not be around much longer.  What these events show me is I don't have the time, nor the appetite to handle such a thing.  I'll leave this thread around so people can comment and seriously, if someone wants to take this over, they can.  This board's fate is similar to just about every other messageboard I've visited that now no longer exists.  Someone has to own it, someone has to take responsibility for it.  That's the reason why third party sites like reddit, facebook, etc exist.  Let some big corporation own it.

 Hello,

 

Overall, I have to say that really sucks. I learned of this board about a month and a half ago, and man, did I wish I had known of this for longer. I know I'm not one of the more senior members or anything of the sorts, and I don't know if you'll think anything of what I am saying because I am not one of the seniors, but you should really hand the board over to one or a couple of the senior members. Like one of the ones that have been on here since the start. This is a wonderful forum, and it would be a great loss. I wish you the best in this matter.

The good news is that fenderjazz is very level headed and he cares about this community.  He's understandably a bit unnerved by the past few weeks, but I'm crossing my fingers he's going to be willing to ride this out a while barring any further craziness.

 

As for being new and expressing your opinion, in my experience that doesn't bother anyone.  By which I mean they'll give you shit for it whether it's your 10th post or your 10,000th.

Yeah, seniority means less to most of us than being able to feed and clothe yourself unassisted.

Don't say anything egregiously stupid, and you're fine.

Update

I'm going to try to see this through. I've looked around and mostly I see people I've been friends with for ten years maybe more maybe less. I don't want to let anyone down. I enjoy all of your company.

We have others who help admin and keep this place going. It's certainly not all me. I just needed to think about the risks of having this board and whether or not I can handle that. I think I can manage. I'll give plenty of warning or redirect people to a common meeting place if I did change my mind.

Eventually he'll say something egregiously stupid and get called an idiot.
We've all done that, at one time or another.

The fact that we're all still here means this is a forum full of masochists.

I'll miss this place when it's gone.  When is that exactly, anyway?  It's been almost a month since the chaos I didn't know much about until earlier when I 'found' this thread.
