    Hey guys...

    I know we probably shouldn't talk about the competetion here...

    I can't post on TS/S over there. From the look of it, there hasn't been a new post on TS/S since about 7pm EDT last night.

    I PM'ed one of the staff, haven't heard back. There's no post that *I* can find that says there's been a suspension or anything......Yeah I had a rather harsh post over there, but I received no PM about a vacation from any of the moderators, and my ID doesn't show "suspended"

    Someone in the know?

    Stopped posting over there when I starting getting "go to the vice-principal's office" type of notes from whoever runs that site.

    Nice of them to say something in public about it, or did I miss?

    They did, but the amateurs running the place removed the announcement. For the likes of me, I can't figure out why they would have to shut it down, except that someone must feel an extreme need to appear to be doing "something". There is no option to clone or copy threads. All they can do with existing material is move/merge/delete.

    They also don't seem to care what their users want. When I was trying to convey my concerns to their moderators late may/early June, all I got back was a reply from Sammy Dearest informing me as to what her expectations were of me.

    Enjoy TUG -- we intend to be open for business 24/7 no matter what. :)

    That's a new, different message posted after the original one disappeared for most of the day.

    Ah, ha! I didn't read the first one. Thanks for the clarification.

    I'm a bit confused as to why they're closed for the week. I have to wonder if they're A) Making a new TS/S, which will only bring over the nice stuff about TSA, or B) They're working to eliminate all traces of TSA, and have discussions be focused on other things, such as safety at hotels when traveling alone, etc...

    whatever, by closing for a week it can only be positive for traffic to here...

    Claiming to remain open "read only" is a red herring -- all that's available for reading now are moved-thread notices to a forum or forums that we don't have access to.

    What's most interesting is that TalkBoard, which is supposed to control the creation & deletion of forums and the rules for operating FT (except for moderation matters) appears not to be involved at all. Forums can only be created by administrators, so there are more than just mods a work here, but this really leaves TalkBoard behind as a total sham.

    Fine with me. Let them keep screwing up. :)

    Look at all of the moved threads, seems a whole sale cleaning of anti-TSA discussions.

    I'll bet it is a mixture of both. No doubt the new owners of FT don't appreciate the constant TSA bashing that goes on there.

    Hello everyone,

    Assuming it's okay with Mike and the rest of the TU admins, I'm happy to answer your questions about what's going on with the TS/S remodel. Feel free to PM me, here or on FT, if you prefer to communicate in private.

    ...ess

    For the record, the PM system isn't used for suspensions only warnings. Suspension notices are sent to whatever email address is in the member's file via a relay through the moderator control panel. Mods cannot see those email addresses unless it's listed in the member's profile or the member responds to the email.
