The case of today Re DeBunker.

Postby bjr » Thu May 29, 2008 7:06 pm

Members as you can see DeBunker was allowed on the forum. I have my reasons for being very annoyed infact livid over this decision. As far as I can see many of us from the DM have been attacked, threatened, had our personal details, extended family details plastered all over the internet. Well I am sorry I am not such a forgiving person as perhaps Nbrado expected me to be.

I know I own the domain, and the forum would not be anywhere without you members, but I have to say that I think it was a bad decision. I know there is a saying keep your friends close and your enemies even closer, but there is no way I was prepared to have DeBunker and his cronies that close to me.

Maybe I have made a bad decision, but I am looking at the big picture here. What was there plan, was it to get on here and hold us to ransom. Because lets face it the likes of Rhodes and Co. would be right behind DeBunker if they are not the same person. And what would have happened, they would have reverted back to their old ways within a couple of posts and then mods would have had to ban. They would have caused havoc on this forum and I am afraid I am not prepared to stand by and see havoc cause for so many by a couple of mindless mentalities. Yes we would have banned them in the end and then we would have had another forum popping up criticising us and slagging us off. It would have been history repeating itself. There was no way was I prepared to do that or see that happen.

If I have made the wrong decision then fine, I am prepared to stand down and hand over the forum to another leader. If this is the case I will ask if I can still post as a member but accept that the decision might be no.

DeBunker is banned and after posting this message I will be deactivating his account. He can sign up under different names and be banned as much as he likes, but he is NOT welcome here in my eyes and will be out the door quicker than anybody can say Jack Robinson.

That is my stance on the matter and now it is up to the members to decide due you stand by my stance or not.

I do not see any reason for Nbrado to be demoted or have his rights taken away. He is valuable in the respect of running this forum and I would be lost without him. Yes this has caused a bit of friction between Nbrado and I, but that is for us to work out and not for the members to sort out.

I hope you fully understand and please can we keep this discussion as to whether you agree with my decision of banning and deactivating DeBunker and whether you think I was wrong and should stand down.

Thank You.
To my critics
When I'm in a sober mood, I worry, work and think,
When I'm in a drunken mood, I gamble, play and drink,
But when my moods are over and my time has come to pass,
I hope I'm buried upside down, so the world may kiss my ar*e

DeBunker

Postby bonnybraes1 » Thu May 29, 2008 7:09 pm

We have been innundated with pms from worried members.
Member after member has posted they are leaving if DeBunker stays.
Personally, I value our members far too much to lose one single one, like bjr and the other mods.
DeBunker is, right this minute, banned from this forum. The reason? Being DeBunker is more than enough.
Our thanks to each and every one of you for your support.

Great decision!

My time is limited and this is the only site I use. I would have hated to have to give it up...but I would have had Debunker and his cronies been allowed to participate. Dangerous people, IMO.
