  Old  Sabotage..........

Can someone fill me in on why Salathe's account seems to have been deleted and Jeff Anderson has been banned?

Is this another example of Vizon sabotage?

No Salathe quit because this forum was slowly dieing and wanted to spend his time on other things....

Can you point me in the direction of a thread which says he wanted to be deleted - in the mods forum this is his last post - only 4 days ago

Just to let you guys know, i'm currently traveling back from my work and should be taking a proper look at what has been happening here tonight or tomorrow. Hope the place has survived in my absense!

Here is what I understand to have happened (in chronological order)
1. Salathe resigns because he doesn't think his efforts are worth his time
-One day passes-
2. Vison puts down the site with a link to his own, outrage breaks out.
3. Vison takes matters out of his hands by leaving you as the only admin with ads up.
4. I find out that Salathe's account is deleted (I did not know about Jeff until now)

I do not know if Salathe requested it done because he is staff there or if Vison (Nick) did it. To my understanding Vison acted alone. I have spoke with a few members of their staff who said this was an unknown move. They knew they would be competing but had no idea it was going this far. It is not in Salathe's nature to do this, he didn't even feel comfortable making small rules changes since he said it "was not his turf."

Salathe is not staff there nor does he support WDP.

Absolutely not! After having a chat with Big Zee, I'm fairly sure he knows where my loyalties lie. There's also a little bit of misinformation in this thread (I didn't quit posting here, far from it!) but it's water under the bridge and my account appears to be somewhat back online (with some patching up to do still).

I guess when an account is "deleted", it's only maimed and crippled rather than anything final and irreversible. Thankfully. Still having issues with my PMs (feel free to send me some to test if I can get them) but almost everything else appears to be up and running fine again.

I guess here's also as good a place as any to revoke that post I made before opening the flood gates for Nick. New staff that come on board will be working alongside me.

@Big Zee (That's if it is really you and not someone else faking it)... sell this site, right now. You've not done anything since you baught it, it belongs to be deleted or given to someone else. I'll offer you 100, just to get you started. Bidding ends in 1 minute.

What i don't understand is, why show up now? Total disgrace.
