    Re: Buffalo range NEW OWNER

    thats so funny

    he pissed me off so much one time i wrote this satire piece mocking him but i cant remember what i called it. i might even have the text file somewhere. i was just waiting for the right moment to post it but it never came. he was certainly the kind of person youd make a piece like that for

    damn what was that piece i did. it had a great pun on 'lit' if i can just remember ...

    I was a member of the Range over there, and I saw how it fell apart, although I didn't quite understand it.

    Actually I do recall a "microscopes" post on rare occasion. But that doesn't mean that ID isn't one of Michael's or Rick's other IDs. I'm skeptical.

    1. Just to answer some questions for you folks.

      1) I did hire a Vbulletin developer - here is his website (http://vbresults.com) You can hire him too and even ask him about me. He is using my login credentials.

      2) It does take time to fix issues if you're not a professional coder... Turns out we had over 500,000 copies of our "settings" that were being loaded with every page visit. Ouch!!

      3) Im NOT new to this! I own many websites. I buy and sell websites for a living. Look me up on Flippa.com :)

      4) I worked on Rick since October to buy the website. We became friendly and he finally got to the point where he was ready to retire. It wasn't one day where he just decided to sell.

      5) Yes, Michael posted in the staff forum yesterday that he is retiring.

      6) Literate Stylish IS and always will be banned at any of my forums.

      I read Buffalo Bills Insider every week for years. I was a lurker on the Range back in the day as well. I DO know a lot of the people. Well, not know personally, but I know of them. I feel like they're my family in a way.

      But guys, in all seriousness, the Range and Zone are two fabulous websites and any poster would be happy to be a member on either. Stay with what you're most comfortable with. A lot of you have become very comfortable at the Zone and that's great!

      Thanks for hearing me out! Goodnight.
    As I predicted.

    I'm pretty much convinced now.

    Re: Buffalo range NEW OWNER

    This option to purchase stock is very intriguing.

    What does that buy you? What does that expose you to in liabilities? (IE if someone sues you for something like copyright infringement)

    If the board ownership is sold- who gets the money? Does the board create a profit with dividends?

    All Bills fan boards are "tolerated" by the Buffalo Bills because they are a good PR tool but are not an economic competitor. Any board run as a business or that takes away profit from the NFL or Buffalo Bills will be sued into oblivion pretty quick.


    Anybody have a full first and last name of this guy with any legit businesses he involved with or employers he has? If it is legit he should be able to be quickly researched via the internet wit any Facebook/LinkedIn/Online White Pages/ ect....

    Or this could be the ultimate sports version of a "Catfish" episode

    After yesterday spending hours on the Range I'm over any conspiracy at this point. Those who want to stay, stay, those who want to do both do both. I'm enjoying both but my home was always the Range. Happy to have it back. I never got involved in drama in the past so it was crazy that I was a causality of what did happen over there in the end.

    Re: Buffalo range NEW OWNER

    the term 'selling stock' was used but it wasnt really ownership, just the ability to be included in votes that decided how the site was run

    interesting. i told him (russ) yesterday that i thought the idea had the potential to backfire and he should be careful with it. and now today i see that he has taken that announcement down completely so perhaps hes already seen what i meant

    last nite he said he came over and read this thread and it hurt his feelings. im getting the impression hes a relatively young fanboy that had some money to burn that rick wanted so he ended up with the site. i just hope rick isnt playing him for a sucker like hes done to oh about a hundred other ppl so far. seems like a nice albeit wet behind the ears kid

    One of the great things about him is he is very good with the website stuff. I don't think Rick or LIT or anyone will be finding backdoors to fk things up..

    Re: Buffalo range NEW OWNER

    OK, I am just now seeing this thread.

    I spent 10 minutes in the shout box and the little hairs started standing up on the back of my neck.

    I was fooled until then.

    When the subject of Lit came up, "Microscopes" asks me "I thought you were friends with Lit, Wagon?"

    Hmmm.

    I did some work for Lit. He paid me for it. But it was all done via PMs.

    How does this guy, who just "lurked, but never early posted" know that?

    Then we (daryls, usual shot box guys) start reminiscing about posters who have passed away over the years.

    I mentioned that I corresponded frequently with Hurls, who many of you may remember. "Really good guy" I posted.

    To which "Microscope" replied "Good guy? LOL"

    "Did you know Hurls, Microscope" I said.

    "No, I just read some of his rants."

    After reading the stuff Dude posted in this thread and remembering how hell bent "Lit" was to own a message board, I'm really creeped out right now.

    Beware, boys and girls....

    I see one of my posts from this morning was deleted.

    Deleted posts. Who's modus operandi is that?


    I'm calling it. Russ = Lit.

    Hurls met up with daQuiz at a game and ditched him at half time. I think Hurls was on staff at the time and Quiz went ballistic after.

    For those that missed the M Night Shamalamalama ending of the soap opera... Lit was Quiz.

    So this is funny.

    Ha.. ya.

    Rockstar take your other buddy wagoncircler with you.

    Go back to the range and graze with the rest of the **** left there.

    That man threatened to rape me. And any person who defends that place or that person(s) is no different then him.

    And rock star and his little side kick wagon wanted me and coastal banned from the range. So rock star is a liar when he says he never got involved in the drama.

    So dont tell me to chill.. get your facts straight. I know you have a hard time doing that and all as I have watched you repeatedly ignore facts but try for once.
