My inbox just exploded overnight, and I'm not banned yet, so I guess it's okay to be a bit more explicit about some stuff. I was touched by all the h expressions of sympathy, and I owe you something. **** here is going to get batshit crazy over the next few days. Frankly, if the site survives this, it would be a fucking miracle.
First, so you understand, Fes, Anthony, etc they are not banned - you can't really permaban anybody these days. If they want to come back, they will find a way. Thing is, people are afraid to post because of the legal implications. There is a lawsuit coming, and it will not be a small one.
Second, so how the **** do I know this? My family owns a big legal bureau, and anybody who looks at my cheques (like Phrost, for example) will immediately notice. (That should also solve the question how I immediately knew that user Monkfg was a liar: I had him double-checked.) And because of that, ever since I contacted a few people during Cygate and told them that BS would have limited, but free legal counselling by my family, some of the people here have forwarded me some docs now and then. (Wanna know It Is Fake's real name, anybody?!) So, that's one of the reasons why I'm not afraid. Phrost has ONE attorney; I have seventy, and a few trainees. "The Rain Maker" is just a fucking bad Matt Damon movie. You do the math who wins if people really try to mess with me.
Third, so what's the dealiooo, after all? Well, a lawsuit for Bullshido and its sister companies is coming along, and a big one. It does not so much involve the Padinha vs Phrost issue, but older stuff; indeed, deals that were made before my time, to milk the site for financial gain, as it has been suggested, and to support a group not directly associated with the site. (If you read the stuff Rudy wrote before the big Sociocide thread was removed, he was the closet to the overall scheme, as crazy as it might sound.) Now, it's not so much that people want to get their interests, like Padinha, but that most staffers want to bail out of their earlier investments before **** really hits the fan.
Fourth, some more stuff so you understand some of the politics here better: YES, you have to pay to be a staffer. YES, some people here really don't like jews, and the "chanukka connection" (Coffee, Kimbo, Matt, T Hunter) was taken down mainly because of that. YES, the whole hidden business was what Cy used as leverage against some of the staffers. YES, and ooooooooh the LOL, in case it comes up, Sirc is really just not a staffer because he has some relationship with the porn industry. Somebody brought that up ecently, that's why there is no podcast.
Fifth, so why is this all coming to ligh right now? - BS itself was never that profitable for Phrost, and now he wants to sell the site. And the site's price is really linked to its net worth. And the bigger the drama, the more scandalous the allegations, the smaller the net worth. That's about all of it. Just so you have an idea, I'm in the pool of possible buyers as well.
So, in all earnestness, this is not me trolling. I wish it was so.
Are there any questions? I will gladly answer what I can at this point.

I've just been informed that people might pull the plug on this site within the next few hours.
Can't go into detail yet, but my suggestion is:
If you have a FB account, LIKE the official BS fan page there.
If you have no FB account yet, GO MAKE ONE.
I'm operating a few sections of the page now, so at least the FB account and the Twitter stuff will remain online whether the servers get shut down or not. Sociocide seems lost unless people change their minds, though.
Based on Facebook and Twitter, we will organize any further rebuilding action.
Most threads will be lost as well, but I have the wiki documents zipped.
Make .doc-file copies of threads you want to preserve for posterity.
We might have to resort to a blog system for a few weeks, but the community will live on somehow, even if Phrost refuses to sell the copyright to the brand name.
**** just hit the fan, guys.

To spear the April Fools take on this:
1. Think about the kind of people we have as mods
2. Think of what they would do to someone for misappropriating their funds
3. Think of why if this was a real problem they would still remain as mods, and the site still running as it has
Now think titties.
Big big titties.

hiro... i just wanted to clarify that it's not the same at Sociocide as it is over here. you said that i could create a new handle and come back if i really wanted to. i'm telling you that we cannot. i tried a few times and it won't let me access anything. one of the staff members told me that my IP has been nuked and that it's the only IP in the banned users list.
anyway, i'm not banned here, just to let people lurking from Sociocide know. but i suppose i probably will be just for posting. i just wanted my friends to know to just contact me at FB if they need to talk to me, because i'm done with both sites. i got an email account JUST for FB. that's firstname.lastname@example.org.
don't write on my wall or anything, because i guess Sam is screencapping everything i post right now. oh well.

would all this have happened if War Wheel beat Kint?

The worst thing to come out of this will be the fact that if, by some chance, this isn't an ellaborate happy time April Fools prank on the part of the staff (if it is, it's a great one,) all the frauds that have ever been cornholed by BSDO will come running out of the wood-works, pointing to this as some sort of vindication, that they were innocent all along, and BSDO bad!!!
Think Frank Dux, Matt Morton, Ashida Kim, and the corpse of Bryce Dallas going on as if all this never happened the day after. Shiver...
