Trump would win the Hispanic vote and get 40% of the black vote. Wins in a landslide.

Positive/Even more positive. The incompetent staff here, who seem to want to actively damage the forum and community, could learn a lot from how AAD handled things.

Thanks for the support Bro. Good luck on the NY Bar Exam. I took it the same time last year. One silver lining, is that the Multistate Exam was easier than the practice ones in the BARBEI course. To the extent you can, try to be up on Family Law, and Inheritance/Will/Trusts stuff, and know the application of the Rule Against Perpetuities cold. I found that stuff the most stressful on the exam. And also those silly little rules in Article 2 about delivery of goods versus when contracts are formed, and are terminable.

Haha, coincidentally, those three things (family law, wills/estates, and UCC distinctions) are basically all I've been studying today so far. Thank you for the well wishes (and I hope that you know that I have nothing against you personally, just very severe disagreements wrt moderating styles).

Ah okay, thanks for putting me (and many others) at ease, Dave.

My thought was based on what xenogard, the admin at AAD, told me about conversations he had with moderators from this site. I hope he doesn't mind me quoting the relevant section of the PM he sent about it:

Quote
The reason I came to this conclusion is something that afleitch said about uncovering security issues about this website [AAD] via atlas (not sure what he was suggesting), and what Joe Republic said about us having access to passwords of our users being one of their main assumptions in their investigations. We cannot view password information. However, considering that Dave Leip's website is his own, and it uses outdated technology. He certainly could. Old websites used to store password information in a way that was extremely unsafe and vulnerable.

Recent statements and actions by the moderators have led me to believe that that may not be the case and they are instead accessible by the admins. Now I assume this is not the case because that would be a huge security flaw, but the forum software is old, and the moderators, when going after the leaker, seemed to be acting under the assumption that AAD admins could access user passwords (which they absolutely can not). So I wanted to check to make sure.

Ah, okay, sorry. I legitimately didn't know and just assumed, based on some of your comments on related matters.

Still a dumb comparison though...

As one might have expected based on who created it, the AAD culture is toxic. It's why I've never made a post there and why I don't plan on starting now. It's unfortunate that Lief is responsible for encouraging so much of that, because I like him and I enjoy his posts. It's equally a shame that Lewis has committed so wholly to that lot.

I wish I had been as wise as you. Joining there was an awful mistake.

And yet you keep blessing us with your presence LOL

He seems to be intentionally running it into the ground at this point.

Strongly approve.

But how else would the moderators get to feel important??? Sad
Oh I've no doubt they dont care one way or the other.  They'll bitch and moan about how hard this has all been for them. 

Always remember, the moderators are the true victims in all this. We should all be thankful that we don't carry the burdens they do. They are so, so brave. Cry

Huge FF.

Looks like Old Atlas is officially dead at this point.

I don't think he acted with any intent to hurt her...

So he may have just been an idiot, who couldn't figure out that his actions were going to hurt her?


a lot of things seem obvious in hindsight.

For what you [Boss Tweed] did to Bacon King - not so much for what you did to the rest of us - I hope you kill yourself.  Successfully this time.

Thought you should know.

Huge FF, obviously. I hope he apologizes to Bacon King though, but I don't think he acted with any intent to hurt her. Or I hope not, at least.

Bring Bacon King back and ban Wulfric, if a sacrifice must be made to appease Nym's bloodlust.

HP.

You have to literally be the worst.

He was actively stalling the Atlasian court case in which you and ebowed are defendants (he told me over PM that he only objected to me being a juror because he was trying to get an "innocent by default" finding in every possible way), a clear obstruction of justice, and now we learn he broke the huge amount of trust Dave/Nym put into him when they gave him mod board access. He's an HP.

Who gives a shit? Seriously fuck off.

So embezzlement, which Bacon King committed by allowing leaking of critical information on the mod board, isn't a crime to you? Good to know.

You need to look up the word "embezzlement" before you embarrass yourself further.

This has indeed been the close of a sad chapter. I have never regretted a ban of a poster more than this one.

Ummm... okay just don't ban her them??
