    Well, I suppose it'd help if I scrolled down to the bottom of the forum list to see Help Desk has new posts, now wouldn't it.
    But consensus amongst the Horsemen, for good or for bad, is that gturner isn't welcome here at WF, ultimately much for the same reasons Jillian Bacardi isn't welcome at Lonaf or beyond Daycare at TK. And look, I understand why you disagree with that notion and reasoning, and I do sympathize. Speaking as a member and not admin, there were some positive aspects of having him around... much like there were positive aspects about Jillian (and yes, that's a stretch, but you understand the comparison). Ultimately, however, the decision and consensus among the owners is Gturner's no longer welcome here.

    Is that a majority decision or do all agree?

    Also, @Christopher as an aside, it may be time to clean up some of the stickied threads at the top. The ones aboits gul leaving and the board going sideways in December can disappear and maybe the one about chat, too.

    Sticking with injustice just because you do not like him when he has factually done nothing wrong is just plain bad policy. It makes the new ownership group tacitly guilty of John's abuses. That is a poor decision especially since it can be so easily corrected.

    In other news, I hope I'm not banned for showing photos of the new "owners":

    Oy! Girls can abuse too. It was @Anna's call. Why is that so hard to remember? And of course, he did break the rules at least three times. Not letting him back in regardless is a judgment call, but innocent he ain't.

    Wow, you really are out of it, huh? I am talking about how John stealth banned GT into his crap box room then "forgot" to give GT access to the crap box room. Then when GT complained about it via PM John behaved like amoral reprobate we know him to be and threatened to permabanned him if he told anyone about it.

    A threat he has successfully carried out with the help of another mod.

    Yes, that is some terrible underhanded behavior that should be absolutely completely unacceptable to any right minded individual.

    The nice thing about specific lies is that they demonstrate how the liar knows exactly what parts of reality would have to be different for their stance to be justified.

    That is not a lie. That is a statement of fact. John knows and I guess it is a sign he knows what he did was wrong that he is now lying to try to cover it up.

    The ownership is part of this abuse because they are refusing to right the wrong done in the ownership's name. Fix this.

    I'll say it again: no one was stealth banned. It was a goof hat we corrected as soon as we noticed. No one noticed because gturner decided to go tell everyone except staff about it.

    You can keep swimming in your on delusions all you like, but i think it's safe to say this topic has been exhausted. Say hi to him the next time you take the piss at us at TK.
