Re: Forum Announcement: Regarding **********
I've been rather weary about this thread since I don't have any firsthand knowledge about the instances that led to John getting the boot. I also hold Samb in high regard and proudly call him a friend and I like John as well from my personal dealings with him. As a result, i'll hold off on taking sides although based on what I have read it seems that the admins/mods have a well supported case.
What I do not like is attacking Samb since he's our host and a great guy that has done a lot for us all. I also don't think that the mods run a muck oppressing people as is the case else where although I differ with some things they do I think they make real efforts act sensibly and consistently.
I also think that the tenor of this thread is too contentious, too bitter and since very few of us know exactly what happened and has heard out both sides fully it seems that we have little to argue about with certitude. Bottom line to me is that it's time to move on to other topics.
