    Out of the approximately 50,000 members registered on AO, exactly three members have used that specific IP address: NFG, TH and RiOtEr. The question was not meant to be an insult, it was a simple query, and it was sent in private, until RiOtEr decided to violate that privacy by posting it here. If I had posted a PM sent by one of you, I'd have been flamed till I was a crispy critter.

    I won't close a thread just to stop being flamed; I've got a pretty thick skin after being here for a while.

    Yeah ri0ter, dur, didn't you know 'PM' stood for Private Message. . .heh heh. 50,000+ members, that's quite a few. . .wonder how many of them are active.
    Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.

    I understand that the question wasn't meant as an insult, but I can also understand why it could easily be taken as one.

    A more 'personal' reply to RiOtEr rather than something that reads more like a coporate apology in a national newspaper might have been better.

    Remember, this board may well be 'just a job' to you, but there are real people, with real feelings behind this income stream.

    And as for publishing a PM, think about this:

    If a member has got a problem with a PM from another member they have a recourse, through Mods & Admins and I guess eventually to you.

    If a member has a problem with you, where can they go to complain ?

    Perhaps that's why it got posted.

    OK folks you can slag/neg/flame me or whatever for this........it is my personal opinion:

    I have not been on this site long enough to preach, let alone pontificate, so it is the view of an (almost) innocent bystander?

    I understand that Intmon is having to operate under American law and practices......he has no choice? He also has to follow the dictates of his employers? local legal complications and the lot?

    He asked a fairly simple question? not exactly third degree?.....I would say it was a "straight question".......based on the number of American ladies and gentlemen that I have worked with....just my personal experience remember please...

    I can also, as a Brit or "Pom" understand Rioter's frustration... "We don't do things like that"...which is true...we don't. I, for one, am a devious , paranoid, bastard?...although I do have reasonably substantive evidence that my parents were legally married several years before I broke surface

    Intmon admitted that he had been "caught".......only because he felt that the members of this site were more trustworthy perhaps?..........I guess that we are all shocked by "bent" politicians, preachers, executives and so on.............I must admit that I might also have been "caught"?

    Steve has noted our internal tensions...we do not wish to destroy ourselves do we?

    Perhaps we should go away and fill out that form that no-one ever does after an IT project:

    LESSONS LEARNED?

    Sorry for the rant, but I do like the site and most people on it.......well ALL apart from the five minute wonders

    Thanks for reading this

    Johnno

    On a slightly less serious note.......I think that Rioter has bigger **** than NFG

    im going to have to go with nihil and intmon on this. while on a slightly different scale, if there
    was a page defacement of AO (Tech ha ha ha ), and it was positively identified as being done by screenname a with ip 1.1.1.1, who also has another alias, screename b also with the ip of 1.1.1.1, i would be a little suspicious of a third person with 1.1.1.1 as their IP. my 2 cents

And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller

    Wait, let me try something...

    RiOtEr, you're fat.

    ... okay, okay that was stupid, shut it. I'm going to have to agree with most people on this. Get to know your members alittle more. I mean, I knew RiOtEr amd NFG weren't the same person, and I don't run this shi*ahem*site known as AO. I know you and you're JupiterMedia are all about the money, but people wouldn't complain and you would probably make more money, if
    a) You put better, and more un-biased ads on the site. - A huge flash ad, that takes up tons of the System % on my school computers, slowing it down to a near halt, just don't apeal to me. It makes me think that "My God, if I ever find the ****er that put that ads on this site, I'll kick the hell out of his".
    b) Get to know your members - Yes, you've owned the site for how long now? You should know your members better than that. Do you not care? You'll lose money that way.
    c) Don't expect people to be on your side - It won't happen. Not every one on this site will welcome the new change, and the changes (or, lack of) for better or for worse.
    d) Do some research on the userbase of the site - You'll find alot of the ads arn't apeaking to many, many members.

    Yes, I relize with threats that Office, ratman2, creative_mx_, cr3at1v3 or who ever it is now (I think I've lost track now...:\) wouldn't be taken lightly, and I understand the bases of the question, since RiOtEr is on the same ISP as NFG, but comeon man...

    Anyways, I'm hungry. At hockey practice today, we had some dude who was insane. So I'm out.

    Peace.

    yes that is true but to be honest i was full expecting to be banned but there you go im still here i have told people off for posting pm's before, but i figured people have been wanting an excuse to yell at the new managment so i gave it to them what can i say i live for the people

    couldnt have said it better my self the 'apology' reminded me of every rejection letter for jobs ive gotten
    "dear sir/maddem we were very impressed with your skills however we decided to go with someone a little more senior than your self
    we wish you luck in your future endevors"
    or something of that nature and the fact i was accused in the first place just made it even worse shows how much they care really doesnt it

    My sarcasm is lost on everyone. . .eh, I need to find a new angle. . .pah. Imma stick to trolling. . .amazingly enough the front page actually looks 1/2way decent now(in the last few days), there are posts I read. Intmon does have a good point w/ the IP, but crap, someone could read the differences in the posts after about three minutes of reading b/w ri0ter and NFG. **** who can't tell the diff b/w. "I like porn" and "yew dun noe me", heh heh, looks like I found mah new angle . . . damn still sarcastic. If I were JupM, the Man, that is, I'd scrap the whole fuxin' thing and start over. . .you got the name, that's what matters. . .eh.

    Yah lets all flame and say why Rioter isn't NFG. One idiot is not a reason for us all to respond (I'm a hypocritcal bastard) defending him. The people that count and most of the worthwhile people on the forum know Rioter is not NFG. Just procede to flaming the person who accused him via PM... not here.

    -Cheers-
