    The most important thing is dont try to be "the new sheriff in town". I dont like how it changed the dynamic at gixxer.com and thats a big reason i left.

    Well.....I'm out of here. Another NEW YORK forum gets taken over by the Canadians.
    Sorry Canada but VerticalScope has a bad rep. This is NEW YORK. I want to be a Member of a forum that's owned by NEW YORKERS.

    I can't help but notice that while people like myself and scosgt - who rarely (in my case) if ever (in scosgt's case) hit the profanity filter - remain restricted after seven months... meanwhile, people are hitting the profanity filter left and right as of late (twice in this thread alone) with no apparent repercussions.

    I stand by my assertion that we were both placed on the restricted list for reasons other than what have been publicly stated.
    Anything stated in the above post is my personal opinion and should not be construed as legal advice.

    Gixxer was a long time ago, a little before I joined the company and I have been here about 6 years. The crew that was originally part of that does not even work here anymore. I have no reason to be the sheriff, you have plenty of more qualified people here already.

    My apologies. As now I have more time to be active on the site and not just fixing server issues, I'm hoping to make this a more fun community

    I am curious, now that the site is under new ownership, are the previously banned members going to be welcomed back? Will their bans be lifted?

    Depending on how or why they were banned, it's a possibility. Shoot me a PM with who you have in mind.

    Mike's call since he was likely the one who enacted the ban.

    WOW! Did a Google search of VerticalScope and it is not good. I seen other websites do the same thing and usually it does not work out too good. Oh well their is always other websites out there if it does not work out.

    Google search any company and you are likely to find loads of not good things written. All depends on how much you want to believe the sky is falling. I appreciate you giving us the benifit of the doubt.
