    I would like to announce that I have removed all users who joined the forum on JREF (before the split) and never posted on or visited the Eupedia Forum. Naturally, all the members who have participated in threads here before the split cannot be removed without compromising the threads in which they participated. Members who have never posted but did visit Eupedia (i.e. expressed some interest) after the split were not removed either.

    After reading the message, it makes no sense. It only talks about removing members...not banning them! Must be a problem with my understanding of the English language. But, as I said, not a problem.

    Yes, CC1 is right. I PMed Thomas and asked to be removed from Eupedia. If you look at any of my posts there, I was not banned, but I was definately removed.

    CCI and I are the only ones I'm aware of that have received bans. Other JREF members no longer registered at Eupedia were apparently removed through request or involuntarily through a purging of the rolls.

    Could you 2 share with the rest of us here the "dirty secrets" why you were banned......... ,

    Are you two into some kind of long distance hanky panky that you took over to Europe?

    I would guess that you would need to search the forums for all posts made by either of us and find the questionable ones...of which there are none.

    It boils down to the fact that Maciamo just doesn't like people who disagree with him.

    I know, but I came to a huge realization that no matter what he does he can't take away my dignity or spirit.

    And I am trying to keep a sense of humour, now when I think of him, I just see him as..................

    It's a ghost town in Europe these days. Apparently no one else finds it interesting either to be there without us. Wow, such power we wield.

    And that I think is the answer to the million dollar question of why things around here get goofy at times.

    That was Thomas' mistake. He shouldn't have done that. People who don't want to participate on Eupedia anymore but have posted there before should be banned, otherwise it creates problems with the database, as with your old posts and Mike Cash's old posts. Thomas didn't even consult me before doing this, although he does not take care of Eupedia otherwise. Talk about one-way decision ! Unlike splitting or deleting threads, deleting members from the database is irreversible, and it does compromise whole threads.

    Many posts in this thread and a few recent others about me (even behind my back) are questionable and this goes well beyond disagrement...

    Please explain how I can make posts behind your back? This is a public forum, not IM!

    Since you brought this one up there is one question I have for you;

    "Do you consult with Thomas before you start any administrating here?

    This sounds like something that should be handled between the two of you and not on the open board.

    I think you are a great person ever since I first read your posts years ago. At first I was acting like a child on the forum and you all were the ones that helped me grow up and be more respectful. In a way you could say you changed my life for the better I mean I still do some not-so-nice stuff offline but from where I used to be to where I am now on the forum is me a lot more respecting of others. Thanks again Moderators.

    I'm sure you are aware that there are huge differences between the Moderator's and Admin here.

    Thomas administrates and nothing but that, he doesn't moderate. He thinks as an administrator he should only bother about the technical wellbeing of Jref. So there you go.

    Rock thanks for the reply;

    Be nice if the other "half" of the team would take the same approach and leave the "moderating" to the Mod's. I think that would save many a headache and misunderstandings amongst everyone.

    I am sure everyone is quite familiar with the term micro-managing. From my perspective the Mod's here do a pretty decent and efficient job, even when I dont always agree with their opinions.... Be nice to let them be able to do their jobs without having to look over their shoulders all the time.

    Having two or more co-heads running any organization or company is usually a recipe for disaster, especially as well as it appears these two knew each other when Thomas brought him on as a full partner.

    Would Thomas bring in someone he didn't know?

    From what I've been told and what should be obvious to everyone is he didn't know him as well as he does now. At least that is the most diplomatic way I can phrase it.

    You may add.

    But I can guess which has caused the other the most headaches and regrets.

    If proper action would've been taken at the beginning, things might have turned out different.

    Is that an assumption that things can not change now?

    Things CAN change, and I hope they will.
