Ed, I know that asking you to choose which team you wanted to be on put you in an awkward position. For that I am sorry. I hope you can also look at this from my perspective.
I have invested a substantial amount in this community and nearly a decade of blood & sweat invested in my small business. When I found out a member of our staff had stolen our users personal information and was sending them emails to join a new forum where other staff members (like yourself) are also mods/admins, I have to find out what side of the fence they are on. We are working to protect all our members personal info and to that end simply cannot risk any further issue.
If your choice is to leave this community simply because I wanted to know if you were loyal to this community then that's your decision. I can honestly say you will be deeply missed. After the dust settles I hope you will return and join us again here on FRF.
Just like Kim's goodbye thread, I am going to close this discussion until I we have some time to get organized and move forward in a productive manner.
For those of you who are just reading about this drama, please see this post
for more details of what's going on.
