The OM forum's withering traffic indicating the end of the bollocks that was slurpo is yet another chapter in this sock puppeteer's ongoing saga. It is amazing to see how many fora he has been cast out of and how many on line community leaders have banned him.
I think it only logical to add AboveTopSecret.com to that list since it was Luci's banning from/disagreement with our site that caused him to spawn "OM".
In the midst of our Slurpo thread, Luci started the staunch Pro serpo positioning in spite of the facts. He went ballistic when we edited out some of his more acidic attacks against some of our Members (if i remember right) so we ultimately banned him, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions of use agreement he signed when he joined.
Guess what he did immediately after being banned?
CREATED several SOCK PUPPET ACCOUNTS.
In an attempt to promote the OM forum he used these bloody puppets to keep posting the link to the new site. Our policy is clear and strict about Members promoting other sites. They need to have the common courtesy to ASK US if it's okay.
Luci couldn't be bothered with asking us (we would have said no - we don't promote websites of people we had to ban) and just kept re-registering under different user names and posting the link to OM everywhere he could.
It was a struggle keeping up with his IP address for a couple hours or so but we got it all deleted.
Then history repeated itself, history I did not know until I read HH's fine work here.
Luci twisted that simple denial of posting his link, based on his personal misbehavior and inability to be civil, into some dastardly plot by myself and my partners to squelch "disclosure".
If you go look through the early posts on OM you'll see several inflammatory loads of ca ca about ATS trying to "silence him" and pure bollocks like that. I think they even started a thread entitled "ATS what's the deal?" that was really loaded with lies and ridiculous statements.
This fits hand in hand with what has been revealed here. This person appears incapable of playing it straight.
Why couldn't he just say "ATS banned me and they refuse to let me put a link up to my site because they banned me" and leave it at that? That was the TRUTH.
I think the reason is clearly because that truthful explanation is BORING and nobody would care!
It's much more exciting to make false statements about "silencing", "oppression" and "disinfo". His lies about us were believed by many who were also mad at us for enforcing our board rules on civility, decorum, and NOT HAVING MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT.
For a while there OM was like a gathering place for those who couldn't handle the civility requirements, non hoaxing rules,etc.. of ATS.
I'll have to go dig through the old posts and get the details but my memory of the situation is pretty good and it fits the history like a glove.
On a side note, the New "Biggest Thread on ATS" is about a game we put on for anyone who wanted to play. It surpassed the slurpo thread with >5400 replies in THREE DAYS.
Never argue with an idiot. He'll only take you DOWN to his level and beat you with experience!
