I have created a temporary site that we can use if MDB is shut down.

This is the URL:

http://mormondiscussions.forumotion.com/

Please spread the word, and keep hold of this new URL if we are shut down.

:confused:

Why are we expecting to get shut down?

Board,

The mods are slow to react to the latest Derrick 'break from reality'. Derrick has insinuated violence against MCB and Dan Peterson. This place has turned into a gong show.

I am starting a boycott - "You get me, or you get Derrick, you don't get both". Until Derrick is removed from this board, and a commitment is made to ban any and all Derrick-like sock puppets as they pop-up, I will not associate my name with this board. I will have no hand in Derrick carrying out a violent act towards any person.

Consider this my last post until Derrick is gone. All who will join this boycott, make your last post in this thread.

LDST,

I'm sorry that I failed to directly respond to your OP here. I want to make clear that Daheshist's remarks to the effect that "Sometimes blood needs to be shed" were directed towards me. I agree with you that his behavior became increasingly unstable to the point of obviously posing a threat via his remarks and multiple efforts to obtain the identity of MCB. As I observed him, he often became confused about which poster he was referring to. He attached and attributed comments made by MCB to me or vice versa. When his tirades escalated to the "Sometimes blood needs to be shed" statement, that is where I became more than concerned.

To say that his behavior and demeanor was unhinged is a gross understatement of fact. He obviously suffers from some sort of disorder.

While I have deep compassion for persons who suffer from mental illness, I don't think it wrong to remove the tools that enable such illness to escalate, which in this case, is access to this board.

If ever there were an obvious call to make by blocking, at least temporarily, a poster's access to this board until Shades became available to sort things out, this was it.

I have no current plans to participate in a boycott. I've chosen alternative methods of complaint, and have informed Shades.

I understand why you chose Boycott as your method of protest. I am simply saying that, at the moment, my ways are not yours.

You did an honorable thing by asking for compassionate banning. Banning, at least temporarily, would have been the appropriate response. I know that many times you and I have rubbed each other the wrong way, but when it comes to matters concerning the well being of people, my experience is that you and I appear to be of one mind.

JG

(Bold emphasis mine)

So why does this necessitate a shut down?

I already made my opinion on this clear in Off-Topic.

Social media rant may land you in court.

I could see something like this coming a mile away. It shouldn't surprise anyone.

Um, if you need to, I can create a temporary forum on the EMF just like I did before. I don't have issues with bandwidth.

However, I will only do this if MDB is going offline for reasons other than the desires of the owners and admins. If it is being taken down for a legitimate reason, then I will completely stay out of it.

My understanding is that a formal complaint was made to Dream Host, which is MDB's ISP.

Dream Host already ran skiddish with the other incident involving IRl issues last summer. Then, we had the copywrite issue. Hopefully, they will look at the fact that everything that was asked for actually occurred. Darrick was banned, and his IP address was blocked. However, they may just shut the site down based on the fact that this is the 3rd formal complaint which has been made in a 12 month period. It is certainly their right to do so. They own the bandwidth.

And, frankly, I believe that some of this is our own fault, as a moderating team. If I had been completely in charge, Darrick would have been permanently banned a long time ago. I knew about [reference to contents of private message deleted], and suggested at that point that Darrick be banned. Shades wanted to give Darrick the benefit of the doubt, and since he had not done anything here, wanted to give him a chance. I respect Shades' stance, although I don't agree with it.

Maybe we will now have to lie in our own bed.

I honestly hope that is not the case.

But if it is, I do not want to lose touch with many of the posters here, and I don't want to lose this community, which has become an online family to me.

That is why I created the other forum. Hopefully, we won't have to use it because that would mean losing all of our conversations here. But, nonetheless, if we do have to start over, I have created a base forum to do it.

Thanks, Infy.

I will let Shades decide if he would like that. I just created this little skeleton forum on a free server so that we have something if we need it.

What harm could Darrick possibly do unless someone revealed their true name and contact info etc?

Darrick has obtained, and has been an IRL threat to one of our posters here. The damage has already been done. His threats against this particular poster is now in the hands of the police.

Liz, are you saying the security protocols of this forum are insufficient in terms of protecting a posters anonymity?

Nope. Liz is referring to an incident having nothing to do with MormonDiscussions.com.

Costco is great. Drawback is small selection.
