Jeez, all whipped down at dealmac...

Here is a thread that demonstrates how cowed they are over there:
[forums.dealmac.com]


I couldn't resist and finished it with this:

I feel like we're in the presence of the "Soup Nazi" and don't dare speak out of turn about what went down with OWC and Mr. Moon. WHIP was referring to that.
I can't believe that Larry still advertises here after getting the boot without explanation by Mr. Moon.
Aww what the hull, I feel like Elaine-Go on. "No soup for You!"-me Brian.

Anyway this will get pulled and so will I. The other forum that Larry started is great and looks just like the old one did: (forums dot mac resource(no space here between c&r) dot com)
See if I can get away with this

yikes... and hey - I don't think need to have animosity towards BLM. From what I can tell now - he was doing his job, not making the decisions in the matter. He has a family and kids to put food on the table for. My gripe is definitely not with Mr. Moon at this point.

We'll hope for the best - but, by their choice - not ours - going to be focusing our resources here now. smiling smiley

Very sportsmanlike there.

What took place at DM had all the signs of an executive decision... who ever knew that the ghost of Marge Schotz was running DM.

yeah, but nothing a little "off the record" private email couldn't have fixed. Could have even been an anonymous email explanation that laid it all out so there was not even the chance of hard feelings. Doesn't take much effort for something like that.

As I may have mentioned here before, the Community Leaders were asked for their input on the forum structure changes. All, and I mean every single suggestion were ignored. (I got this from a CL BTW)

I think that the decision was made above Brian's pay grade (as thay say in the military)

I can sense that in some of his terse statements he has made.

I'm with Larry. Let's move on and build this place up and not dwell on the past.

I don't know about you folks, but when I move or change jobs, I usually spend 99% of my time learning the new situation. I really don't care much about the old at this point, nor is it worth any effort to worry about it.

It is history. Can't change it. We should talk about it on the park bench, when we are retired, and not much else on our plate.

Very poorly handled over there. Their choice.

Time to deal with the "here and now" . . .

We have a great start here, thanks to Larry (and members), so let's be tolerant of each other and kick some A$$ in the world of forums . . .

Patience, grasshopper . . .
