Bodeezy was removed from VIP today as a trust issue. He was caught as a VIP sharing stuff on a forum that ripped our look/name and spammed us before. He was removed because i prefer VIPs to be trusted, not only was he a VIP member of this forum, but he was also a top referer meaning he was bringing new members to this forum that once spammed us. He then proceeded to bitch at pofecker about how he would contact Dave to get things sorted out as apparently he is super friends. Also this thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/executive-vip-zone/119324-questions.html He has been quite bitching about staff approval times and thinking he is higher up the chain than mods, which is totally not appreciated, we have had many VIPs scam before (not calling you all scammers) but we EVEN moderate staff products so he thought he was better to bypass this. This led on to him writing a thread on his forum bitching that i infact banned him because he apparently said that he would email Dave. He was banned because he needs to 1) Learn respect with the staff procedures in place 2) Not promote forums that was once spamming here, and him actually being on this other forum in questions top leaderboard for being one of the best referers! (again not his reason for ban but the demotion) 3) He again still doesnt quite understand that he broke rules, and is still bitching that Dave will unban him (HE WONT) Some people just dont get it. I atleast i think am one of the most friendliest down to earth admins that runs a forum of this size, and i usually let things slide with a simple warning or a chat. But he has tried speaking to every other staff member apart from me. And claiming i banned him because he was going to email Dave or something along those lines. So before this goes public, and im sure it will because he is claiming he has been banned unjustified. And he has a forum of people pestering pofecker now because he is trying to retaliate in this way. So there you have it, theres more reasons of his ban, and it would have been temporary but he just cant get around why he was removed from VIP. You have heard the real story, and the evidence is out there. Any questions feel free to post here. P.S He made a lot of money from here and still doesnt respect the place. He never once donated to the forum even for Jnr VIP even though he made money through us. We also have logs of every staff members chat from him, and to every member of staff he was also quite demeaning towards them. And doesnt see how he broke rules. End of story, VIP is to be trusted, we cant have people in here that promote other forums that spammed us to hell and back and him being one of the top guys who referred people over there. And after him arguing with staff etc... he deserved a temporary ban. Now that hes being immature about things. Its quite looking perm.
