Yes, I did read that post, and it did actually give me a greater respect for the whole situation. I even noted what you said when I was discussing a reopening with SO. I'll quote something I said before:
I understand what you are saying C, but please reread what I said on that thread. I wasn't trying to suggest suppressing anything but I don't think you quite appreciate the toll that event, and others it triggered, took on ATS.
the reason my thread was probably closed, was partially my fault, I can admit where I went wrong. I can understand why that last quote I made was probably a bit much, I wont describe what I quoted, but lets just say it was unfair on my part to directly quote something so confrontational and harsh, however, not being allowed to link to the quote, I decided to quote it - the sharing of information comes above emotions
I simply wanted to discuss a very interesting aspect of ATS's history, as I'm sure a lot of members did, and do. It really didn't help IMO to shut it down like that. It was clear by the quick rise in flags and stars people found it most interesting. I understand the events brought pain for everyone, but I really thought it was no longer a taboo subject, SkepticOverlord himself made a thread on this aspect of ATS history with a humorous comic. If it really was just a hacker, can we get past the emotions and finally look back at this as a historical and unerasable aspect of ATS?
I've done nothing but support this website since day one, but I can't restrict my scope of conspiracies to one spectrum...either it's all ok or none is ok...
Yes...but instead of having a new thread covering all the key pieces of information, what we have now is the one years old with some vauge comics.
It's not about suppression because as I said the other threads are still open for comment. Think of it this way, if a family suffers a personal tragedy, sometimes they just don't want it discussed in their home.

Both yesterday and earlier today he had 'BANNED' on his Members Profile.
Something has changed!

Perhaps some of the problems are because we have a growing number of members who have a preconceived notion that every single VOLUNTEER staff member of ATS is a rotten bastard who is up to no good and does nothing except sit at the desk and figure out ways to piss off the members for the fun of it.

I dont remember anyone blaming the mods for anything?
I remember people and myself asking WHY he was banned.
Your above pose lets me know that its not public knowledge.
Some of you Mods And SUperMods should really check yourselves when you are slamming a a member of this site.
If freeborn didnt have such thick skin, your derrogatory comments might have upset him.
Is Internos still around?

It's called there was a problem between the member and the administration. That problem has been worked out via email between the parties who are RELEVANT to the situation. You can confirm that with the member himself if you'd like.
Yet another reason why half the posts here are simply "attack the evil moderators" without any basis whatsoever.
Not one person participating in this thread had a clue what went on with IRM or that his situation was being worked on between HIM and the staff. Yet, so many of you jumped to accuse the staff of doing something awful.
