Sean M Hallgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Hello my name is Mr. Payback.
One of the people posting on Lusenet, Sean M Hall, launched an attack on another board called Ask A Drunk, utilising html tricks to disrupt and damage the forum, eventually making all the people who posted on it leave. While it was hardly a forum for serious discussion, it was well liked by its group of regulars.
None of the regular posters to the forum had admin status so his posts could not be removed. As fellow users of Lusenet you must agree that this behaviour is not acceptable. An attack on one board is an attack on all of them. Sean must realise that just because he thinks something is silly and unworthy, it does not mean other people do not value it.
I ask you to discourage Mr. Hall from posting this board and the rest of Lusenet. If you upset him he may start ruining your forum too.
Thank you for your time,
-- Mr. Payback (firstname.lastname@example.org), November 01, 2002
