(this is a my reponse to the John Lear situation. I posted this in a new thread, and then it was rightly closed after a Mod pointed me in the
direction of this "ATS Issues" Thread)
I wanted to get in touch with John Lear, and i noticed his fourm was gone.
A little digging, and i found out that there was some 'dirty laundry' and that we will never get to the bottem of this.
That being said.
Its a (blank)ing shame that John Lear is gone.
I dont think that he should have been forced out of this board.
Its is also a shame that his Fourm was taken down... the thread that 'explained' why John Lear was banned, was strange, at best.
The thread was closed, and John Lear only made one post, and it basicly refuted what the Mods and Owners said.
John Lear had some of the best threads on this Site.
I just don't know how to express this foul taste that is in my mouth.
This may be the lowest point i have experineced in all my years here on ATS.
There is no doubt in my mind that this thread will be closed...
I am also mad that it took like 3 months to notice that he is gone.
DAMM YOU ATS...
This is just one point in the book thats is the downfall of ATS.
John Lear was the best member on ATS, he was also the biggest Celb on ATS, more people have been turned onto ATS from John Lears Coast to Coast
interviews, then anything else.
John Lear also gave TONS of attention to ATS, when he was on C2C, all he did was Mention ATS over and over...
John Lear was the best thing to Happen to ATS, and it seems the Mods just killed him off...
