I think you're being a bit of a drama queen, firstly the site was down just for 2 days due to a small hosting issue, which is now resolved, secondly, the owner made it clear to me that ALL payouts have been made so I do not owe anything or am under no obligation to pay for somethign that I am not liable to. The previous owner did mention Leslie was banned hence why Leslie did not recieve a gift. Anything that happens to the site AFTER the aquisition is soley my responsibility!
Whatever happened, is between you and Jason/Previous Owner!! You're treating me (new guy) as though I am the old owner!! Which I think is terribly unfair, and cruel...such a harsh welcome to a forum which I expected to have nice people!
I've PM'd Leslie regarding the issue of her not recieiving a gift, and now just sent the previous owner's email address!
Thankyou very much for your kind words and hospitality...it is duly noted!
First, Leslie is a male. I'm sure he's the one you forwarded your site application to so you might have noticed the male symbol on his profile.
Second, when you purchase a business you take on anything that comes with it, which in this case is a TERRIBLE reputation. The "old" owner didn't want to complete the payments and now the new owner doesn't. Where does that leave users? Screwed, that's where. And anyone even thinking about starting this network will think twice before doing so all over a couple of hundred bucks. I don't think it's so much the amount these two are owed, specifically Egyptianruin already said it was just a $25 DVD, but it's the principal of the matter. Users have hundreds of sites to choose from and when they choose one that rips them off, it's a total waste. Your not wanting to make right something that affects your new business speaks volumes for the type of owner you will be. Remember it takes hundreds of positive posts to outweigh just a few bad ones.
I'm not here to bash on you because honestly, I don't care. I feel sorry for you because whatever you paid for the network you got ripped off considering the tarnished reputation it has. You could have bought the script and built your own site without any "dirty laundry" cheaper then trying to take over someone else's mess.
Good luck to you [you need it] .
