I've been wondering what happened, so thanks guys for providing a bit more context. The site has apparently been abandonned by Vaxman and set adrift. The result is a permanent groundhogs day of Looney Laura, which is just not that interesting for anyone to visit except for a few of us die-hards.
OK this looks like an answer to my just posted query in another thread. thanks. I am appalled they just ran and left this board to a bunch of spammers and trolls, APPALLED. wish they had deputized someone b4 they fled.
I am sorry that no one else tried to answer while I was away. My answer is not definitive. I have no idea what went on behind the scenes... so I will relay just what happened that we were able to observe.
The problems began May 29, not the 30th, and I messaged AND emailed Vaxman on that day what was included in this comment. https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/forum/main/comment/eb4d5232-5068-4da6-8d01-1227459770b2?postId=6476f944c2af7e0012b1bb75
Vaxman made 2 posts on the forum:
Something weird happened 5/30/23 https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/forum/general-discussion/something-weird-happened-5-30-23
'The "weirdness" was because WIX implemented an AI security application and it "caught" all those people including HCA MAN. They apologized." https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/forum/general-discussion/the-weirdness-was-because-wix-implemented-an-ai-security-application-and-it-caught-all-those-people-including-hca-man-they-apologized/
Vaxman insisted that all was well, but it wasn't. He really should have made a main site message because hardly anyone is on the forums other than interested lurkers. (Or perhaps some members who can no longer log in to add their 2 cents, like DeatofRats)
He said a moderator likely went rogue. It is highly possible that one of them was actually a hacker troll, given both Vaxman and Vaxlady were giving accolades to the trolls who played "good member/bad member" with their sockpuppets accounts. (Case in point, the very last thing that Vaxman(?) did here was to give Dudette a Poet Laureatte badge, when they had done little else but troll, drop URLS that could have and should have all gone into one post with a little more explanation than "I liked this" and leave lots of chaos and their sock puppets behind to create more! Gee, I wonder who else does/did that... and leaves snogs and kisses and calls everyone beautiful and handsome? 🙄)
Anyhoo, it was NOT fixed. Some of the members who were locked out in May have not been back. HCAman was not back as they replied to a member on Facebook they could not return as they were locked out. Even when he was NOT locked out... HCA was showing as unknown member the one time he posted on the main site and told us he was leaving for Mexico for a week and hoped it would all be resolved when he returned. It obviously wasn't... A couple more members (sorry can't recall who) asked again if they were going to post and they said yes but did not OR... could not.
The last time Vaxman emailed me back was June 6. He has ignored or blocked me. (And now I just leave him bitchy messages when something happens... being he doesn't give a flying $&#% about the site anymore) The truth is more like... once Vaxlady started doing main site posts as well as moderation, Vaxman seemed to have 'left the building' (Until she got fed up...)
That's all I got...
I wish the people who are still showing as "SAV Patron" would email him or direct message him on the donation site. He says he wants to make it a legacy site, but that is impossible without some basic administration and moderation.
Addendums: From my emails to Vaxman: 'On July 15, the main site had 6 hours where messages were erased once published and not added until hours later... AGAIN! That is 3 times now since MAY! Nice "fix."
And just today, one person's post from last night only showed up when I went to see if there was anything more new. I scrolled back down and there is was ... *There are so few posts, everyone should be noticing this glitch.
(My spellcjeck is disabled now on forums so... sorry in adbance 😏)
How biarre. I've never seen an instance where someone went to all the trouble of creating and curating a site like this...then just abandoned it.
Obviously, there's no further need for those of us left to come here anymore either.
It's a shame really. I keep posting here, but the site has lost all the momentum it had. This could've been turned into an alternative social-media site.
