I really hope he does come back!
well.... i am thinking also but in a little bit longer term.
i saw the end of the RG(RobertGalbraight) forum, and you may think what you want about censorship and all the bad things which are said abour RG,- the mf forum was great and RG felt attacked by this Jesus treat and saw red i.m.o. If someone would make the same chokes about the koran as it have been made in that treat it could bring tha author really in danger,- this does not mean that i did not laugh about the chokes and found RG`s reaction not adequate. But the things were cooking up and he lost control, loosing years of work i believe and we had lost a worthfull forum.i felt that MT( MarkTucker) and JR ( JamesRussel) have been the main motors in the great exodus there which killed the RG forum,- if i remember well.
following some guys started some initiatives to start a little private forum not to risc to be censored anymore by anyone and to stay quiet from "beginners", first tries didnt had much response, till MT and JR ( as known persons, maybe others too ) started a kind of "secret" forum where you just could come in if they invited you personnally- called the "fight-club".
( pls. correct me someone about the details of my story is too wrong,- i was never closed to the circles who created these things so my conclusions can be wrong ... ).
i was wondering some months ago why JR appeared suddenly frequently here again,- but more i wondered myself how sensitive and overheatet ( just my opinion ) was taken the "lolita affair" here,- for me it seems really an offense to this forum and i simply could not understand the whole thing,- less JR took this as a reason to unregister. if Michael would not had reacted so cool ( my opinion ) this forum would have lost half of its members too, and probably it wouldnt longer be from interest in the mf aerea.
Now,- some months later,- MT appears after long time of silence,- i was astonished again, anyway, i thought maybe its getting too boring in their private club.
Again a lots of nice posts ( as had done JR too ) and than suddenly-..... unregistered.
everybody is free to do what he wants,- but if i see all the thing together i cannot avoid to see coincidences,- i just hope that noone will leave for some solidarity feelings, which i.m.o. are in the wrong place.
