Running out of places to post! Could be my winning personality, huh? Anyway, Alligator has been looking for a reason to ban me, finally he just made up one. Back to lurking mode before I piss off Rock and/or Dixie.

Daisy drove off to sell alcohol to the masses. That's ok because she only knows how to make eggs scrambled. I had to make my own omelet. It was mushroom, onion and cheese with whole grain wheat toast, OJ and a big mug of tea. I'm so old that I remember when it was the woman's place to make the breakfast. Ah...the good old days.

Whatever it is, it's just like WB......

Take a good idea and royally screw it up, so that the REAL hikers leave and the packsniffers are left behind.

Little hint I've learned from my dad...........if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Dear HammockForums.net members,

In October 2006, we started Hammock Forums to create the internet's most useful repository of hammock information on the internet, and to provide a peaceful sanctuary for hammock enthusiasts to discuss our shared interest. Through careful selection of moderators and by paying special attention to creativity, originality and respectful discourse, Hammock Forums grew into a unique community that many members proudly say is the best forum on the internet.

Integrity has always been the foundation of our operations here, and has undergirded that creativity and respectful discourse. This applies to members ensuring they give credit when using others' ideas, vendors (until recently) carefully ensuring they don't steal other vendors' ideas or profit directly from members' ideas without giving credit, and the moderator staff being as transparent as possible in the site's operations.

One key aspect of the site's operations that deserves special scrutiny is the donation procedures. The mod staff historically has proudly proclaimed that we moderate Hammock Forums on a strictly volunteer basis, and that all donations go solely towards site operations or improvement. We do not personally profit from your donations. However, you may notice that we have not been saying this recently.

This is because several months ago, the site's owner withdrew access to HF's financial accounts from all six moderators. Frankly, we have no idea what is happening to thousands of dollars of your donation monies. We have directly asked why the access was removed, and given an ultimatum that without access - not even spending authority, but only access to view - we can no longer moderate this website with the integrity we require. We offered several opportunities to remedy this situation but were rebuffed each time.

Therefore, it is with heavy hearts that all six of HF's moderators - Just Jeff, angrysparrow, NCPatrick, Cannibal, headchange4u, and John Sawyer - are resigning as Hammock Forums' moderators. We stand in agreement that if we cannot keep our word to the members, we will no longer represent their website. Furthermore, if the owner will not keep his word to us, we will not continue enabling him to profit from our efforts and from your donations. For us, integrity is more important than participation in any website.

We're sure Hammock Forums will continue without us and we wish you all the best in the future.

Jeff, Sam, Patrick, Grant, Jason and John

Hopefully they'll get it worked out.

And then ATTroll closes the thread after 16 pages and posts this:


I appreciate all that the previous administrators and moderators have done for Hammock Forums. They have made it what it has become today. When you donate to the web site, the statement has always read “This is a donation to HammockForums.net to help offset the cost of maintaining the web site and to show your appreciation for hosting the web site”. I will say that the donations that come into the web site keep the web site running and have helped tremendously and I do appreciate it. Donations will always be used to make Hammock Forums the best web site it can be. I will also say that none of the donations that have come into the web site have been used solely for my personal gain.

I am sad to see the current staff leave and I am very sorry things did not work out. I wish them all the best.

I would also like to apologize for a statement that I made yesterday shortly after the previous staff resigned. It was a coincidence that the web site went down with a software glitch around the same timeframe this was all happening and I thought there was a correlation between both events. However, I was mistaken. All this was a little upsetting and I made a rash speculation. I thought that it had something to with one of the previous staff. I thought it was sabotage. I apologize for my assumption.

I think we need to move on and continue keeping this the great web site that it is.

What do we have to look forward to;
I will be updating he forum/website software in the near future.
I will be upgrading the gallery software in the near future.
I would like to improve the overall look, feel and colors of the web site look and design. I may be asking for inputs on this.

Now let’s move forward.

Same shit, different website.

OK that looks more like what I expected from a troll without honor - hiding the fact that he gets more money in that is used for site upkeep and that he is pocketing the rest

HF is down still. I'd like to get a count of donating members, even at $10 each per year. On the Drum builders forum I admin, the four Admins kick in $50 a year. The main guy kicks in like $100. Site paid for......for the year. So $500 or less. So 50 people kicking in $10 a year would do it. I bet there are LOT more than 50 donating members on HF. Add in the ad's running on the top...................

Yeah, I quite being a donating member awhile ago. It used to be my primary site where I hung out on the internet. I got Turtle Lady started over there, and now she's the one who tells me what goes on at HF.

But I take donations. Contributions will be spent on gear and beer.

FULL DISCLOSURE: It is possible the IRS may target me as a 501(c)(4) with impure thoughts; your donation may not be tax deductible; seek advice from a tax professional.
