Seems like this is getting lost in the drama of it all...
Netchicken's last words to me personally were "F" you"
... He truly HATES my guts and I am pretty sure I was the personal target of his
prank. After S.O., Simon and I decided to fire him, he went and plead his "case" to my Partners, Simon and S.O....
I read what he wrote in his own defense and against me, (we are partners and everything is open
between the 3 of us) personally, it was
childish, hurtful and pathetic. Childish, hurtful and pathetic just like the pranks and gags he likes to pull that cost him friends and "status"
here months ago.
Some people just can't see past their next self satisfying
move to notice the possibility others could be hurt by their actions. Some people
just don't care.
As S.O. said, his family and colleagues were "stalked" by a freak who was enraged by Netchicken's antics elsewhere a couple years ago. We didn't
find that out
(that it was him irritating/pranking the other board) until months after the fact either... I remember talking to my FRIEND and
Partner S.O., about this mess and he was genuinely WORRIED for his family and job
My wife and I had to change our home phone number because of a disgruntled, twisted, former "friend" and staffer going NUTS. The "back
side"/behind the scenes of a website this big is not always pretty to behold. We don't talk about this crap because it's not valuable to the
membership and would sound like whining.
What can we say? The guy is GONE, we fired him MONTHS ago, way BEFORE serpo started, and incidentally, serpo has NEVER been more than a paltry 7% of
our traffic PERIOD.
The insinuation that we would have anything to do with those emails for a "ratings boost" is beyond false, it's plain stupid.
we draw MILLIONS
of people a month, 93%
of whom, STILL, have NOT even heard of serpo.
Victor's email is pathetic
but now we know who Victor Martinez is.
