I have had to remove the "A big transition for the boards" thread for now. When it comes down to it, I host the bbs and I have to be responsible for what is posted on it.

I believe there were potentially libellous statements from more than one party. I say "potentially libellous", because I, as a third part have no idea whether anyone in the thread is lying about what someone else said or not. It seems more likely that it just two interpretations of the same event.

I had a request to remove some statements from the thread.

On the subject of looking at PMs, I certainly havn't looked at anyone else's PMs and the bbs doesn't appear to provide a straight forward way of admins viewing other users PMs.

P.S. That thread was never visible to anyone who wasn't logged into the bbs. There is a hard coded exception in the bbs code to hide that thread id from non logged in users.

I think removing the thread was the right decision. Hope the individuals concerned can come to some accommodation with each other as unlike me they've been very valuable members over the years.

Whatís the next step? Itís been a month of silence now.

I stand by my callout in the old thread. And Iím running out of options and time to salvage RioCarís FAQ and other content. I didnít see any responses in the old thread due to the time I took away after finding the strength to call out the toxicity.

Iíd rather not discuss this in the open, though with the other thread removed, and no private space here beyond PM threads Mark walked away from over the years, Iím out of options.

Itís really hurt that decades of contributions here led to this community feeling unsafe during a time some members could use a lot of assistance.

OMG I don't know what I missed. I've loved this place, whether I agreed or not with ppl's various opinions, and now I am not sure what could have possibly happened to cause a thread to be removed!

I am pretty surprised too - not sure what happened (missed the original thread), but always enjoyed the helpful and friendly spirit of this community.

Faolan, I'm only a haphazard member here, but I've always enjoyed my visits.

I can see you're hurting; I can't see what you're looking for, though.

What do you need to get this done, or hand it off to someone else? Is it just sitting on a dusty computer under your desk? Buried in a tarball somewhere?

What do you want the next step to be? What's your ideal end position?
