The web seems to be running rampant with gossip, lies and rumors about how I am banning everyone or setting the members accounts to a 'read only' status.
I am happy to report that none of this is true. It is all false and being done in the hopes that it makes myself and IH look bad.
Nobody has been banned from IH in over a month. And for those that say they have been banned, the BANNED would appear under their username.
The members and/or previous members that are spreading gossip fail to realize that VBulletin keeps a running log of what the members do to their own accounts. Therefore I can very easily see who has INTENTIONALLY gone into their own account on what date and the time to make these changes. I know who you are ... however, I have never been a person to lie, cheat, steal or tell tales. I tell it like it is and most of the time I have the proof to back up what I say.
Should anyone need assistance in fixing their account, please PM or email me, this also goes to those individuals who intentionally or accidentally messed up their accounts. I will be more than happy to assist these individuals.
For those naysayers out there that think I killed IH, lets go back in time to a post that Regis made, which can be found here:
IH General What Is-
IH is a free user generated non profit mental health support forum. "Mental health" because it an outlet for discussing matters that affect us and we can relate or debate with others sharing or not sharing the same views. IH has NO commercial, political, religious, state, country, fraternal, military affiliation.
IH is mostly unmediated and is for adults over 18 only as obviously many posts may not be appropriate for viewing by children. If it becomes apparent that a poster is a minor that poster will be blocked from access in as much as it is technically possible TO block someone, however, motivated youth often are the first to find a work around for denied access.
IH is a broad spectrum forum with a semi specific area for most type of posting as such ADMINISTRATOR'S ONLY demand of those that freely use this board is that they post in the APPROPRIATE section. IF occasion should occur in which a poster or group of posters deliberately try to impede and impugn on the intended free exchange of dialog and try to deliberately sabotage the legitimate flow of information by, and I emphasize REPEATEDLY attempt to derail topics and posts by off topic commentary, hate baiting and trolling, they WILL be quarantined in the "POINT and LAUGH" area of the board to preserve the overall integrity and spirit of the board.
We are not asking that "Hate baiters and Trolls" not post here, just do so in the appropriate "Hate Mongering" area of the board and not absorb the entire community in their quest to derail discussion.
The views expressed on this board represent no one, certainly not the moderators or administrators, and only reflect a "behind the keyboard alter ego" of the actual posters themselves.... so with that, take everything you read with the appropriate degree of skepticism.
Also should someone's posting infringe on someone else's copyrights, personal rights, privacy rights, or any other such rights real or imagined, please send a removal request to the APPROPRIATE CONTACT LINK at the footer of every page. If in our opinion the content posted does in fact carry a degree of question, we will likely remove if the can show reasonable cause to object to the post. We WILL ONLY consider requests for removal that come through the CONTACT LINK.
And..... no we are not the C.I.A.
All I am trying to do is go back to the roots of IH. For those individuals that are not interested in that, you can go find another place to gossip, spread lies and rumors and create drama. IH is NOT about the drama anymore.
