And so it seems my point has already been proven. The more details I tell, the less people believe about what I'm telling. Oh well.

I'm not twisting or turning it. I'm just not believing it because it is, at heart, completely unbelievable that the admin of a site this large could be that stupid as to believe all this without proper verification.

Bad spellers, UNTIE!!

And you would be amazed how badly I can fuck up the spelling of Cincinnati!


yeah... I'm probably one of those biased people... I'm a stickler for spelling and always have been. I read books and find typos. Not that I do it on purpose or anything, it just happens.

It is also completely unbelievable that an admin of a site this large micromanages every single thing that goes on here, or it's staff.

Oh, come on Joel, don't play me for the fool.

We're not talking about some little thing here that it would be acceptable for admin not to micromanage. We're talking about "The Edge" posting here - it's not exactly like it was some minor little thing that shouldn't have required your attention.

After all, you were keen enough to post then which means it didn't exactly just, y'know, slip past you that all this was happening.

Renne,

It was a general statement based on my opinion, just like yours was based on your opinion.

Don't twist my words. I didnt say anything about 'the edge'.

Thanks,

Joel

If I thought I was about to post an INTERVIEW with the BAND that was the inspiration for this large site, then I would micromanage like a sonofabitch.... but thats just me.

Clubs named Vertigo were mentioned on this site as far back as July, so I suppose it wouldn't be that hard for someone to actually find the website to the one in Costa Rica, it wouldn't take a MENSA to do that.

I'm real sorry but I haven't actually read any real details. It would be good if you could just post the document you said the 1st day of this thread you were preparing with the details of exactly what happened. The actual facts can't be any worse that what a lot of people already think, can they?

It doesn't have to be a thesis, just a brief recap (with actual facts and details) of what led you and/or the staff to believe that this was "The Edge". I'm not sure what could possibly be so difficult or take so much time that this can't be done? If you were fooled fine, but there were/was person(s) that work for this site who were swearing by this, why? Have you requested that they give you the details of why they were so sure of this person's identity? I would have to assume so, given that it's your reputation that's really at stake.

The facts clearly and concisely stated would put this whole thread and issue to rest. Why is that so difficult?

P.S. Based on one of your last posts, I take it that you've been reading our infamous impersonator's posts on the atu2 forum.

No. The standards that others are using against him. All the bitchers are making such grand statements (repeatedly) about who knew what and what they should have done to check it. I'm saying that's a great idea. Let's start now. WHAT "media outlets"?

Nope. This is based purely on Interference.

Yes. It was a very typical post from you.

You didn't say anything about anything.

Funny... I just recall a few posts ago posting a bit of new information which I hadnt mentioned publicly before. Guess that's nothing.

So is this what you felt was the most important issue from my post that should be addressed?

How about posting more than a vague snippet of new information, then? Why not post all the new information you "haven't mentioned publicly before"?

Because your post sure as hell implies that there is a whole lot more.

Why is it so bloody hard for you to come clean with this? That's what I can't understand.

Boo hoo. What a baby.

You post basically nothing - "A person said some wierd things about some other shit and then some stuff happened" - and cry when people dismiss it?

Where is the timeline? Where are the emails? Where are the names? Where is the full disclosure?

Feel free to talk about "privacy" - but that just continues to make it look like you either don't give a shit, or you are covering for someone.
