    My friend asked me what he can do about a forum owner that banned him but would not take his threads down as he asked as they had a lot of private information. The owner caused him problems and made the forum members turn on my friend as he lied and then deleted any replies from his thread that told the true facts. It was over some small thing regarding a video my friend made for him and the forum owner would not pay him and it just got worse. What can he do about it? He now lost all his friends he made over 2 years as they all believed the owner as my friend could not post anything to defend himself.

    What forum was this? Like rettaibi said, he shouldn't make such a big effort if they were so quick to believe the owner.

    Surely if they've been friends for two years they'd have his Skype or email address? There must be other ways to contact his 'friends'.

    Tell him to go outside, if a forum can mess up your life your spending to much time online.

    If they're that easy to lose then they're good as gone. This the reason why you should join a reputable forum with a reputable owner like BHW. And a forum owner can't pay for a video? What lousy forum is that? WF?

    Real friend with whom he can go out and have a beer. From OP's description, if the guy is so messed up he seems to be really lonely and having only virtual friends.

    Maybe it was DP. "Sorry I can't pay you right now the FBI raided my house and seized my assets." To be honest, with that excuse I'd forget the video, it's not everyday that it happens.

    lol, some funny replies,, I think he is looking to know how to take down the forum.. someone suggested he do a search on the forums backlinks and then email all the website owners asking for the links to be taken down so google ditches his forum :3:

    Truth is, there is always 2 sides to every story. But when both sides don't collaborate each other, unfortunately only 2 people know the REAL truth. And when only one person is there to tell the story, then people tend to believe only what they tell since the other person can't tell their side....

    But when it all comes down to it, it really don't matter what everyone else THINKS the truth is.
