    I noticed the same thing yesterday, but didn't want to mention it. Although I don't remember seeing another post by that member, I gave him the benefit of the doubt and thought there must have been some type of error with his account.

    A few months ago, there were some problems with some member's accounts and BHW was unable to restore their post count, rep, and other info to the correct levels. But the members did get to keep their membership level, whether it was executive VIP, Jr VIP, or member, etc.

    I don't know if that happened in this case or not, but that is what I assumed. If this scenario is not the case, then BHW is as corrupt as every other IM site.

    Are you aware of what forum you are on? This is BHW, the name of the game is exceptions.

    According to the rules you have to have more than 50% of the other VIP to vote in favor.

    It's not like he's given SOOO much too us he should be able to get an exception.

    BUT, again, it's like being CEO of YOUR company, you can do whatever the fuck you want and make exceptions for people all day.

    At the end of the day, it's Dave's forum, and he can do with it whatever he wants. Odd-job is a personal friend and business partner of Dave's, as well as a coder. Nuff said.
