    Default Shakin' My Head -- Suspension of Disbelief

    Never did like the 'behind the scenes office politics' stuff,,,anytime, anywhere. Avoided it like the plague all my life.

    Now this.

    Haven't been around here in a long time. After obsessing for months, I was delighted that my ol' buddy from the Steinitz / Sharp / MoreToSee forum found the Beetle, and all the more that his partner was from Oregon, my home state, and the birthplace of my youngest daughter. That kinda set the stage for me to be able to "let go". Then the next thing I hear is this.

    Well, people, even rock bands break up. So what's new?

    That "destructo" did many right things cannot be contradicted. He handled things in HIS own way, and whereas he may have had a sharp edge, I say, remember IRON sharpens IRON. He says the Tweleve site has been hijacked by cthree....cthree says destructo absconded with funds and handled people inappropriately. Discharging the man who was instrumental in creating this universe is inappropriate in my book. I'm sorry to see this happen. Bottom line, I think you need to work it out, and no doubt, apologies are in order.

    Thats like saying it was inappropriate to discharge Nixon because he was "instrumental" in creating Watergate.

    It wasn't an easy desicion to make. We did it for the good of the community.

    You are free to form your own opinion, but we are not children playing in a sandbox. You telling us to "work it out" is a symptom of your not being fully informed. Thats ok though, I know nothing about lemurs.

    Default this is awfull for tweleve

    Well there is always someone who has to screw up a good thing. I really hope that destructo didn't use tweleve money to fund air line tickets to hunt for tokens as c3 is suggesting. And the idea that you administrators can read the "Private" messages, well, I could rant for days on that subject. That is just totally WRONG. Bye bye to the days of working with a partner through the 12 site private messages option (not that I don't trust c3 and sue) but ya can't be to carefull. If given the chance to peek at a present, 99.9% of us would peek, myself included.
    Hope the dust settles soon cuz this site has rocked with all the members.

    cthree, your responses have been lame, sorry to say. Rather than giving me a direct relevant response, you have chosen to respond with 1) an sarcastic analogy and 2) a dig. And each time, your replies are thoroughly arguable.

    Sandbox? Children? So you say ADULTS don't occasionally have to work things out, AND apologize for their behavior? Interesting and telling comment.

    You are right. I am not fully informed.. However, actions taken here by shutting destructo out. an INTEGRAL formative part of the Tweleve team in what appears to be a HIGH-HANDED manner speaks volumes. IF destructo has done all the things you have said, he should have the right to his defense in this "OPEN" forum which he helped create.

    Apparently destructo has been blackballed and is not given the freedom to express himself in his defense at this board.

    I do NOT support that kind of action. Period.

    Nor do I believe, would most Americans. In my experience, that's not the way things are done in the home of the free and the brave.

    I do thank you for the opportunity to express myself and that you have not chosen to shut me down for saying so.

    I hate that this happened, it leaves a yucky feeling, but thank you for keeping the site open for us. I know it's a lot of work and not much appreciation. You don't realize how it helps those of us who are new to treasure hunting. Thank you.

    No...he was perfectly free to post and chat here UNTIL he registered a domain with Tweleve in it and made some very untrue statements publicly on the home page. You are welcome to post here anytime friend, just don't expect me to do anymore explaining than I already have. You call my answers lame, I call you uninformed. Did you actually read my post? Do you not realize I did to Des what he FAILED in doing to ME? Funny thing is, I know that if it was the other way around, you might post in my behalf and I appreciate your integrity. On the other had I do resent you making direct, opinionated statements about something you know very little about (or just haven't taken the time to ask around and read all the public information.) Thanks anyway once again for your comments.

    As for the PM thing...I struggled REALLY hard with that information. Even though I can say for sure that I am the ONLY person in the WORLD with access to the databases now, and even though I would never read them, just to make things easiest use them only for casual talk! If you want to be all Uber private use email and encryption! There is no one but me who has access to the DB, although I want whether of not you trust me to read your PM's to be a moot point.

    Until I can encrypt them....use your own email (and your own bandwidth!) To talk about sensitive things. PM's are for convenience only.

    Thanks all for the amazing support.
