    your empty apologies mean nothing as does your word Brian, you are a mis-guided fool who seems to be caught up in his own self belief.

    You sacked the mods and admins - no you didnt, myself and Ian clearly resigned and I am sure the membership as a whole will recall.
    How many times was it that you took TSB done and threaten to close it ??

    In your message above you state:

    "Me again I'm glad I sold SB broke even well not quite even but worth loosing money"

    yet in a PM to me you brag about the few grand you made from it ...

    hahaha makes me laugh to be fair. things went on behind closed doors before you bought it.
    bunch of idiots thanks for that and maybe if you listened to some of what the 'bunch of idiots' where saying the forum wouldn't have gone the way it did. if decisions where made as a team it would have solved alot of problems.

    anyways as you say your out here now so good luck and cya later.

    Nice to see that Brian actually agrees with my concerns that the forum will change to an advert driven vehicle even though after my post he sent me a PM accusing me of negativity and nothing was going to change

    My GOD. You're like a petulant child. Have you ever been tested for autism?

    Do us a favour Brian and #### off like you promised to do. Leave Brent to run the forum without your bitterness infecting every other post.

    Everyone, this thread isn't to take shots at previous owners. Its about moving forward. If you have concerns please send them to me via private messages but this isn't going to turn into a hateful attack thread.

    An edit: Please, again, this is not where this threads direction is going. Any posts attacking anyone from here on out will be removed. Moving forward and being positive about the future of TSB is how things should be from here on out. Being negative and taking shots at members is never productive.

    Hmmmm... I see your account has been well and truly closed down... all posts deleted and that you've not been on since posting this... lol.

    I have no issue with you, or anyone else on this forum..i genuinely hope TSB goes from strength to strength. I only joined the forum in the middle of all the 'fun', so have no idea really about what went on or didn't. However, I have since got to know a few of the former mods and members who have posted in this thread and have nothing but respect for them.

    It just goes to show that some people lack the courage of their convictions... why make these grand statements and then log back in later the same day!?!?

    How's about all the ill feeling is just left at the door... people who want to be here stay and those that dont, move on (and actually move on, not just say they will and then log back in a few hours later)?

    What realisr does not know and why he still goes on as a saviour is chris rejected multiple offers to sell TSB to the members and admin.

    He wanted more money than it was worth and what you should actually know is you were the only person willing to pay the silly amount he wanted.

    This forum would have been owned by its members before you but chris wanted what he wanted

    Why do you think the other forum exists? Its because all the members wanted a forum and it was a cheaper option than to pay the silly price offered.

    You werent a knight in shining armour who rode in to save the day.... you were simply someone who jumped in feet first without thought and handed over cash.

    And jumping in feet first seemed to be the whole problem and moral to the story

    I'm a relatively new member and whilst a fan of salty box I must admit I've noticed a definite decline in activity and a drop off in replies to posts, with only the same few members engaging regularly.
