By happenstance, I noticed a member here, who came here by way of another forum, also recently began posting on an essentially dead George Noory Sucks Thread on yet a different forum. They were complaining that the GNS thread at GLP was deleted which I found hard to believe, so I investigated. Hadn't been there in years, but would never go unless "proxified" - and sure enough, the thread is gone. This CG member is also a GLP member and at last unofficial count, is a member of at least 5 forums which have C2C/GNS threads. To each her own - one is enough for me.
by the way... i don't want anyone around here getting the impression that it's a sin to use this site if you're a glp member or something. that's not the case at all. it's just that if there is another exodus into coastgab from glp as happened two years ago, rest assured i will do everything necessary to prevent this forum from being shit upon again.
that said, i don't see it being a problem this time around. circumstances are very different than they were at that time. the initial burst of chaos last time around wasn't really even the fault of the glp people. it was caused by a former administrator who went way beyond what his role was supposed to be... and in the process, caused a major disaster which i was left to clean up after giving him the boot.
this former administrator (and former friend) was only supposed to be an administrator when it came to technical issues in the forum software. he wasn't really supposed to moderate people and "lay down the law." then, one day, out of the fucking blue, after MONTHS of no posts from him, he suddenly drops in and starts capriciously and arbitrarily moderating all of the GLP people HEAVILY. everyone was like, "wtf? who is this asshole?" haha, and then the fun began. this forum now has only one user with administrator/moderator capabilities, and that's plenty.
Lest we forget.
