CEO and Khmer440 reach a GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT!

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

And let me state the obvious: the public dissing does NOT injure this site at all: in fact, I think it helps, a whole lot of people came over here to see what all the fuss was about, saw a new land, and several decided to stay.

Numbers are up, as is traffic. How can that be bad?
Vlad, the time was Ripe to clear the air. No insults intended, but it sure is fun to watch when the Gloves come off.

Let the Peons Speak.

And thanks a million, guys, for trying to turn this thread civil. Let's keep it that way.

First part, I fully agree. Second Part ---- I admit I have not followed all this forum feud foolishness very closely, but did KIR actually do that????

From what I read he simply indicated that OD was communicating with the "mystery person" spamming his forum with kiddie porn ------ thus implicitly suggesting that OD might be complicit in this attack on the forum --- but nothing further. Is this the case, or am I missing something?

It's fine for triggering people to check us out, but it has it's limits.
Yup --- this forum is a breath of fresh air in some ways, but the sooner this forum outgrows the self-congratulatory, thumb your nose at the other guy, rally the troops against the enemy mentality and finds it's own identity the better off it will be.

I have to say I never knew how much pent up anger there was against the other forum --- I thought it was just the usual forum politics.

KiR has been silent in the last few days. He's either busy or taking some time off from K440.
K440 managing folks made it clear they don't want a feud. And CEO management agrees with that. You should follow their lead.

Hey, wait a minute, isn't this the place of 'internet freedom' and 'openness' ?

Socrates should be able to voice any opinion he likes.

You can't start a bitch fight, have 3 weeks of discussing (encouraging) it and then think you can treat your users like tame monkeys and get them to sit back down in the cheap seats en-mass.

IMO - K440s' more sensible owners/admins saw what was heading their way if they left the petulant little wannabe in charge of putting out this particular fire. They have made the only sensible move, from an increasingly limited list of options, that they could.

However, they still have the problem that the same petulant little prick has managed in the last month to cause huge amounts of damage to their, already somewhat tattered, reputation.

In particular the publishing of supposed private messages and the use of those messages in a completely out of context way to insinuate that a person is involved in activities/crimes that all of us would find abhorrent and sickening went well beyond the pale. The fact that KIR actually knows that person IRL just adds to the magnitude of the smear.

As I know the person smeared by KIR/K440, I am not really prepared to sit down and be a good monkey until there is a public apology issued. I take it extremely seriously that he has tried to trash my friend in this way and I'm pissed about it.

I'm new around here but I have read the k440 archives pretty extensively and have seen the vindictive way the site/KIR has gone after people in years past. This time however he has gone a little too far with that game and needs to man up and admit he's done wrong. He needs to apologise publicly (ie - a pinned, for a couple of months, apology at the top of the speakeasy) for the ruin he has attemped on an innocent mans reputation. After that I could just about forgive K440 for allowing this to happen. KIR not so much.

Calling a 'truce' favors K440 far more than this site, they are the ones on defense. They are the ones losing readership. They are the ones losing advertisers. They are the losers thus far in the battle that they created. So CEO is doing them a favor by backing off. Fair enough.

I personally will have no problem taking KIR to task IRL for the disgusting thing he has tried to do to my friend and until he has apoligised I will not be visting K440 and I will not stop dissing them at every opportunity.
I agree. Even if he apologized, I will never seriously use that site again as long as he is the boss there.

They show up in the user list like this:

And gray colored.
I'm a little closer to being awake now, and i'm pretty sure that you have inserted the code to identify which bot is visiting such as Bing [Bot], but it may bring several 'indexers' with it, these will be identified as guests.

No other way that I could account for having over 13k guests online in at one time on one of my other forums when the membership was only around 4k.
