    Due to pending legal issues, I am moving the forum to a new home at TheHighRoad.us.

    Thank you all
    - Oleg Volk, Owner
    The High Road(tm)

    What the fuck is ":greddy:" about that? The man supposedly had his domain grabbed by one of his admins, who then tried to claim partial ownership of the board.

    I'll let the facts get sorted out in court and then make a decision who gets the :greddy: label.

    Some bitter fight over ownership between Oleg and another admin... thr.org still works though.

    Some guy posted at thr.us and wanted all his old posts deleted because they were his copyright and he was pissed at Oleg's plagiarism or something. :rofl:

    I will not be posting at thehighroad.org until the matter is resolved. Derek Zbananas seems to be a giant douche.

    oleg volk is given thehighroad.org by the guys that owns the firing line

    a guy volunteers to be the geek behind thehighroad and receives compensation anyway

    oleg volk receives interest from someone wanting to put ads on thehighroad.org but turns it down

    geek behind thehighroad changes dns registration to thehighroad.org and removes oleg's administrator privileges because he wants the ad money and feels entitled to it after his volunteer work

    oleg sues geek for return of his domain and database

    in the meantime oleg magically gets a copy of the database and starts forum at thehighroad.us

    seems awfully cut and dried..... Though if it played out like Oleg and crew said, I wonder why some of the Mods/Big Names have stuck around? Still like to actually hear Derek's justification for what is going on; the lack of one, and the gestapo admin bullshit is somewhat telling to me though.

    The people bitching copyright, and other legal jargon they don't understand, who don't have financial interests in the site crack me up though.

    Oleg wanted to go in a different direction with what appeared to be a more generous benefactor sponsoring the site without adverterising or influence. I believe the reason derek claims for his actions is because he thought that offer posed a danger to the community. Not as though altruism is really an excuse for taking another's property anyway.

    Its also worth noting that if you google his name you'll find a woman blogging about her business experience with derek as her business partner. She has no kind things to say about his actions either. Also the spinoff forum, Armed Polite Society, was also hosted by DZ. Oleg retained dns ownership of that but derek refused to turn over its database.

    Derek never voluntarily gave Oleg a copy of that databse, Oleg did get a copy through the database fairy and that forum moved. I think there are two sides t o every story but I'm very strongly inclined to think this is pretty cut and dry.

    Same here. Too few subforums makes it impossible to find anything.
