Sorry to all the Admins and Mods on this site, this isnt ment to pimp the site out on here, but just to tell the members here incase they didnt know.

LS1.com's owner has cut 30 mods from its list because of certain things that went on in the past few days between staff members and the owner himself. It looks like they are going to change a lot of things today and are basicly going to ruin the site. I for one am upset because they fired some people, and now have turned the site into a nazi board. It really sucks because it was a great site to BS with people from around the world about cars and anything else. This all started on LS1.com's almost anything goes board and then other mods fell like dominos. It was a great site, but now it looks like its going to lose its AAG board, and become a tech only site. The owner will announce what hes gunna do at noon today. Its a sad day for one of the internets most active sites.

Strange things are afoot over at LS1.com... Here's a statement from Elmer:

http://www.ls1.com/forums/showthread.php?s...threadid=483560

To whom it may concern:

Effective noon today, February 12, 2004, I am resigning my position as Administrator for www.ls1.com. My reason for my resignation boils down to distrust. I have been a steadfast proponent of this site for 6 years. I have backed the owner of this site on whatever stance he selected as being board policy. I and the other members of the moderating staff take a man at his word. Recently, things have come to the surface that has given me cause to doubt the honesty and integrity of actions and promises of this site.

Financial issues have long been a touchy subject on this site and I have been privy to the real story behind the scenes. I will not defend or reveal any of the situations more than to say that uncontrollable occurrences can come up and the best plans can go awry. However, I can only take a person at their word.

I have threatened to resign from this site before and stated to the site owner that my remaining here was hinged totally on the payment of all creditors in a prompt manner. Recently, we changed ISP services and the break left some money being owed to the former ISP. At first glance, it appeared that the site was trying to sneak off and not pay the overdue fees but I was assured by the site owner that all that was required was for the old ISP to present a bill and the entire amount would be sent immediately and the account would be all square.

The bill left the ISP on 1-9-04 went to the address as directed by this site owner. It is now 2-11-04 and the bill has not been paid.

I feel that 1 month is MORE than an adequate amount of time to pay a bill especially when the promise was made of “immediate payment upon receipt”. Again, I’m sure factors could have come into play that made that expectation impossible but no factors were brought to my attention and I awaited payment to go to the old ISP. I became aware of the “factors” last night at 11:30PM EST. I simply said, “Too late. Why wasn’t this information made privy to me as it occurred?”

Because of this, it appears that my faith and trust have been wrongly placed and although the intent was there to pay the bill as promised it was known during the last 30 days that it wasn’t going to happen. I WILL NOT be associated to this type of slipshod operation.

My resignation was openly announced in the moderator forum on Tuesday and I clearly stated that I would post this fact at noon today. Well, under cover of darkness, things happen. It appears that I, and many Former Moderators, have become “Members” during the wee hours of the morning and I was not allowed the dignity of stepping down at noon. Well, one wouldn’t expect that to happen with a class operation but it happened here. To the Ex-Moderators, I proudly say thank you for your support and all of the work you did while you were moderating your forums. Principle and honor are excellent traits and you have stepped up to show that you have these traits in abundance.

I’d like to congratulate Kyle on stepping up to the plate and shouldering the load as Administrator. I had a different impression of your position on this but I must have been mistaken. Good luck with your new job.

As a regular member I might visit once in a while to say hi to friends. I’m sure there are other existing and some new sites in planning on the internet where I can trust the people that run them to be honest and truthful in their dealing with the Members, Moderators, Administrators and the ISP.

There is a chance that I may be involved in a new site that would go into direct competition with this site. If that does come to fruition, I would invite all of you to join us at the new site. We will be looking for honorable Moderators and Members to be part of an honest and trustworthy car site.

I don’t know how long this post will last and I would hope that no one causes it to be locked or deleted into the board trashcan. If you have comments, please be civil.

So, I wish all of you good luck in your lives and with your cars.

Elmer

That's why http://www.ls1tech.com is much better.

There are several threads on this situation in the lounge on ls1tech.
