THe problem with that is, the forum was made mostly private after it got leaked. He would have needed to make an account to see everything. Why would they let him make an account?

Don't get me wrong, I see your point, but it would have been hard to actually go in there and look.

It was the way it was done . In a very childish immature sneaky manner. What would you expect him to think..apparently he has had prank phone calls about cf...now that is just going to far.......secret pming on his forum...talk of dos attacks...Seriously dude wtf would you do?..Come nicely seeking a chat with the members who started it? Do that stuff where i live and all you will get will be the sh!t beat out of you. Not peace talks.

the whole thing about Dos attacks and prank calls were in no way conected to the original members, i guess some little punks that were extremist got on there.

out intention was not in no way harm David, spam him, or CF in any way...

but unfortunetly, plpl over there took that msg the wrong way....very wrong way....

I have read the whole forum over there and it certainly does not give the impression or being the little flowery happy rally point you are making out

So you guys would have no problem opening the forum up and letting david in so he could see what you all have to say?

Default Re: A mature discussion about the reasons behind the boycott

so, i guess all in all, the whole other forum was designed to
1.) discuss ideas on what we though could improve CF
2.) maby get an ass. admin to help David out
3.) after a wile and with some members, dispay our ideas and bring them to davids attention

thats wat me and the other original members were there for, i cant say that about the later members unfortunately
