Default What happened over at Brewboard?

The site has been down for at least a day, came back up this afternoon, and is now down again.

The message on the site currently is quite curious (In Greenboard green for posterity sake):

Quote:
The Brewboard will be shuttiing down until 10am.

I am sorry that the ability to share beer and wine makers information is being underminded by a few disguntled former members.

The board will be back up tomorrow and any continuation of the present efforts of disruptions will be met with strict enforcement of the rules.

This board is going to be a refuge for beer and wine makers and if you are not going to be a part of the solution you will not be welcomed here.
Without knowing any details--it sounds kind of like the PH is shutting down? Anyone know the scoop?

Maybe Cheese posted pictures of Gnomie in bed with his dead hooker and it torqued a few people off.

no, not when you ask for it, PTN. I don't have any idea what's going on over there Dude, the green backdrop is an assault to the eyes so I barely go over there anymore. It'll be interesting to find out though.

These two sites have the latest scoop:


Lifeboat

Brews Brothers (Powered by Invision Power Board)

I used to like the Brewboard, but I don't think it will ever be back at full strength.

He is a basic recap. Crap hit fan last night which resulted in prolly almost 20 people being banned including 3 or 4 long time moderators and that info is not in the below quotes. The information below in quotes is about what happened on Saturday.

So in place of the GB, those long time moderators opened a new board called Brews Bros

With the PH gone/out of commision a lot of us moved over to another board that had less restrictive rules. That place is the Lifeboat

After having my account banned on Saturday, only to be unbanned a few hours later. I asked to have my account deleted and have been done with that place since.

The discussion went on for over a week. We tried to pin him down to stating clearly what was acceptable and what was not, and he just wouldn't do it.

Quote:
Invalid said TammieR smelled like McNuggets.
And got a 2 day suspension for his efforts.

Jess eventually overruled the mods, installed his new code of conduct which looked just like the old one but in his mind was FAR more restrictive. 4 mods resigned, because we had no idea what the hell we were supposed to enforce.

Quote:
Lots of banning and unbanning ensued.
It gets kinda hazy after that, but there was kind of a general revolt that involved banning, suspension, account deletion, flounces, lots of McNugget references, and a bandwidth spike at the lifeboat. Then Jess informed the world that his new mods were a little too harsh with the ban stick, so he unbanned a bunch of people. Then he started a big group hug thread in which Mtn tore him a new one to general applause...

Quote:
Somewhere Saturday night the whole board went *urk* and went down.
Then Jess decided that he couldn't keep the place open with as few mods as he had, so he closed it. Supposedly it's coming back up soon, with no PH.

Did any of this spill over onto here over the weekend?...Was that nasty Troll Attack we got hit with somehow tied in? Were some of our members involved over there and we somehow got dragged into it?

I have no idea what the heck went on over there, but I am sure it is part of the reason I spend so little time there and am happy to have HBT.

All the threads were shut down...it was pretty nasty, scat porn and other things...It seemed like it was multiple people...It happened at a gap in moderation no less...only a couple of us were around, and reporting threads...

This was a discussion that came about as the aftermath of the attack....http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f45/shou...y-only-109866/

You know, one of the reasons I landing here originally was that I thought this was the nicest of all the other brewboards...I lurked on the others including that one...and just thought the energy here was more congenial....I actually thought that place was one of the worst. Plus staring too long at that green backdrop gave me a headache.
