If there are people you would like to connect with, I suggest you PM them to exchange personal information.

On Monday, I will be completely shutting this forum down.

Why the cancel culture?  What's the topic you're referring to?  The lincoln project?

This board has my actual name on it. I am the only one exposed here.

I can accommodate a lot and put up with a lot. 

But I won't have anything with my name on it associated with what wiredup and RIARules are obsessed with talking about.

Oh I'm as guilty as they are.  Seems like the smart thing, before and after this topic, would be to remove your name.  

And here's a thought.  You're okay with someone defending it?  But not okay with us pointing it out...

Okay, it's been fun.

Political threads end forums like this. Unfortunately. Maybe a complete ban on political threads fixes the problem.

Well this is a depressing addition to an already depressing day.

Ban the political threads, honestly. It’s not like anyone has ever had their politics changed over a forum thread.

Good point. I’m for it.
What if the forum was limited to FAs only?

There's no way to "ban political threads".

You ban them, someone brings it up. You ban that person, then they come back with a different ID, use a VPN, whatever.

It's fucking wack-a-mole.

As for removing my name from it, that's virtually impossible, unless I make up a fake identity, fake credit card. 

I'm the only one with my dick out here in the wind.

I've asked twice for people to stop posting about that bullshit. You all ignored it. I made a threat. You called my bluff. Well, I have to show I'm not bluffing otherwise you fucktards will continue to do this garbage.

The points were made. I'm fine with a few posts. Nobody on the forum as far as I can tell "defended" the actual act. But many of you kept talking about it. And wouldn't let it go. Nearly every other post on the forum for the last 72 hours mentioned it.

There is a reason that the big financial mag forums don't allow this kind of bullshit. 

I don't want some reporter someday, when we find out one of you is a criminal to come crawling up my ass, and have my name plastered all over.

Considering I avoid most of the political BS I am an occasional viewer of it. Can anyone (mo) pm what happened instead of the cryptic messages? 

This is why we can’t have nice things.

I don’t view any political threads here, I just find them boring.  I got a lot of great info here for starting my business especially about software .

I don't know if he was kidding...

But I love this forum as a place to compare notes / exchange ideas.

I can easily recreate this forum if necessary...

In the meantime

Please join my Advisor Discord as a backup..


Works on computer and phone...

I was going to recommend a discord.  This way this issue wouldnt come up but its not going to be as good as this since you can't really search old topics when you have specific issues.  Maybe you can I just dont know how to

Looks like there may be an option for me to be out of this bullshit, and for the forum to stay up.

Until that is resolved, the forum will stay up, but the Politics and Religion forum is locked, as is the Water Cooler. 

So no shutdown on Monday, UNLESS some jack nozzle posts some garbage on another sub forum.

Then I will actually shut it down and will not transition it out of my hands. So if you want this shit to keep going, police your friends.
