Funny timing that you wrote that, Peaches... I actually just PM'd a Moderator over there today, asking if my membership here would be considered "treason" against their site. Basically, I was asking for the opinion of the Mod team and the Admins.

I don't have anything against the other forum, and in fact, have thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Having said that, I'm an honest person and I'm not going to "sneak around" - I'm letting them know what I'm doing, and hoping that they don't have a problem with it.

Haven't gotten any response yet, but I'm curious to read what they respond with... hopefully it's not a banning!

Definitely keep me posted MJS! I'm also a member of Jeepforum.com and JK-Boards.com, so I'm just an all around Jeep forum whore...I go where there is Jeep information available. I certainly hope WOL and the mods there don't have a problem w/ our other affiliations...

Of course they don't own me. However, I've been a very active member of their forum for almost a year, and have given and received a lot of knowledge on that site... so it's kind of a mutual respect kind of situation, you know?

It's just ridiculous that they've set up a site where someone feels they might be banned just because they post at another site. I mean, just read that sentence and it says it all. I've never heard anything like it before. Those guys are way out of touch with reality. The huge influx of new members to this site over the past week are the inevitable results of such heavy handed, adolescent, paranoid and controlling site managment.

It seems way beyond unethical to me that a moderator would read someone's private messages. If anyone did that to you in any other situation, you would be angry beyond belief. Why anyone would not just resign from the site once they found out that that's what the moderators are doing is simply beyond me.

Not taking sides here, but I'll fill in that reason for you: You have a bunch of people that used to belong to his site coming over here and insulting him - so I think it became personal with him. Again, not taking sides, just trying to fill in the picture for you.

It was personal with him long before everyone started leaving. In fact, that's exactly the reason they all started leaving. Treat people like children, abuse them, try to control their every move and, hey, surprise, they find something better. No one has to put up with the crap if they don't want to.

I wouldn't recommend that any JK-Forum members that want to STAY JK-Forum members invite someone over here. Granted, this is a great forum and all, but they don't take too kindly to trying to lure people away to their competition.

Happy C is great, and I'll say this: He and I spoke via PM a little while ago, and at the risk of putting words in his mouth: he doesn't seem to hate this site or everyone in it... he is, however, a bit upset that some people are really talking smack about JK-Forum and giving a modified account of the reason that they're not members anymore, without fessing up that they had a prominent hand in getting themselves banned. He didn't mention any names, of course. <- What the hell does this symbol mean? I have no clue, but I like it!

On the other hand, the one moderator over there that I truly hate is... I'm just kidding.

Also, from responses I got from WOL and the crew, no one's upset that I'm in both forums. They know me well enough to know that I'm not going to stab them in the back or partake in any Eddie & Co bash-sessions.
