Today MR4B posted the micromilly and the Ftops promotions on the forum, me being my usual self read through them super quickly and decided that they were just satts, that are offered on STARS and FTP without reading the small print and realising that they were added seats so actually decent value.
Me being me i would have held my hands up as soon as i saw or it was pointed out this way that they do actually look like decent freebies.
But in my haste i poseted a picture of a Croc and then the word 'OF' and then a picture of a poo, therefore insinuating Croc of sh*t.

Almost instantly im contacted by Alex Dreyfus on Facebook and am sent the message below, i have highlighted my only responses to his comment in red.

Yes i am guilty (very guilty infact) of being a bit of a moaning minnie, yes i am guilty of jumping the gun and posting before thinking. Most of you who know me will even agree that live and in person i tend to even say what im thinking before actually thinking.

But what i have taken HUGE, MASSIVE, GREAT BIG offence to is the comment from Alex that ive highlighted in Blue, with this in mind i am taking his advice and am leaving the forum, as i seriously feel that if he wants me to bring more value to the forum, then he obviously doesnt pay any attention to the forum!

I have also highlighted his comment about image in Violet just as a pointer that it appears that 'image' is all thats cared about and not 'community'

jon,
your 'shitty' message starts to really being annoying,
so either you bring value to the forum
and you'll be welcome,
if it is to say that everything WE do, WE spent time and MONEY, is shit.
I clearly advise you to leave the forum and find another place to write your shit.
Pokerstars/FTP are the one offering gifts/money/etc ...
they are sponsor,
having a guy like you always bashing on the forum, is just damaging it.
I don't want that.
and I'm pretty sure you can understand it.
Jon Sibley
yeah i understand i will leave
.
Alex Dreyfus
or if you want to create your own forum, feel free. But just posting images of shit
while we work for YOU and giving you free money, its a bit insulting
and very frustrating.
Jon Sibley
its fine ive said i will leave its not an issue

Alex Dreyfus
but do you understand why iu'm saying that ? the whole point ? that its nothing personal, but just a matter of image. At the end, that why we invest money, iabout image.[url=http://pokerdb.thehendonmob.com/player.php?a=r&n=177230]
Jon Sibley[/url]
its fine ive said i will leave
Alex Dreyfus
Fair enough, ope we will still stay in touch
Jon Sibley
its doubtful isnt it. u never know though


Im happy to continue posting today as im sure this will get a few comments about 'midget attention whoring'
But rest assured from Midnight tonight, you wont see another post from me.

Bogus and Jack i will keep intouch about current running stake
Brodders Hackett i will ship your $47 and $7 respectively tomorrow as promised (providing the lad brings my lappy back tomorrow)
MicroMilly challenge participants i will look in on the Monday after the series ends and ship the winnings to the champ.

Sounds like you having a bit of a hissy mate, his first language isn't English and you may have gotten the wrong end of what he was trying to say.

Never mind, it's a result.

I saw the withdrawal of the (poor) league and addition of these sats and thought exact
Y the same thing.
For many regular forumites the whole point is playing together in a long form game with a decent prize worth railing at the end.
I have no interest in any SATs.
The added money from stars/tilt/GPI has been very good but poorly managed. How many people could have been sent to Vegas by now? Could have been the best league ever

Forum is dead
Take your database mr dufus

I don't come on as much any more, it just feels like any old forum now, it had a nice feel when there where all the great posters, and also with Joe and the gang doing probably the best job anyone could potentially ever do with running not only a site but a forum that we could call home.

Since they sold up, it's slowly died, and has lost that great feeling, nice to see that a few remain although one by one they are dropping.

Since then, I give huge credit to Stowjon for actually trying to keep the fun going by creating events, challenges, and looking into a league that we all wanted, and for nothing but pleasure!, yeah he moans here and there, but then when something is dieing that someone loves they are bound too, either way he has been probably the biggest credit to the forum, so to say he brings no value is as big an insult that he could get.

So from the occasional look in and post up until now, I will leave for good also. Good luck to everyone, and hope to see you about somewhere else.
