I can finally go public with some scandalous news. This reporter has uncovered a Watergate type of situation here at the Cafe:
Cafégate is born:
Multiple threads have been locked or simply gone missing from the forums of the cafe. Who locks them? Where do they go when they suddenly disappear?
By constantly hounding (no pun intended GP) the moderators of the cafe, I have managed to get them to give up small bits of information. None of these pieces of info meant much individually, but when looked at together the picture became clear.
Here is the story, certain KEY moderators are implicated.
I hope I will be around to tell my grand children about this.
A look at the top 10 posters for the cafe shows that 5 of them (50%) are moderators; further analysis reveals they hold 5 of the top 6 posting positions!!!
I posted an innocent thread some time ago in the classifieds section of the cafe. It quickly became a meeting point for various cafe regulars who enjoyed each others company and got a thrill from increasing their post count.
This thread grew uncontrollably for days and it became apparent to SOMEONE that it needed to be stopped.
TERPFAN was wrongly accused of “making it disappear" and later a confidential source revealed to this reporter, that it was in fact JAYM09 (The cafes leading poster!!) that "HID" the post. We all know what "HID" means, at least our goodfella's do
A new thread was started entitled "Missing" in which concerned cafe regulars (CCR's for short) began asking questions about the missing thread. This thread was locked and no one knows by whom!
Another thread was posted in an attempt by CCR members to draw out the thread locker, it failed
we knew by now we were dealing with a hard-line and very close knit organization.
Further investigating by this reporter turned up the following stunning fact:
"There is a secret, hidden forum, that only moderators can see” YES! thats right, I have also obtained a copy of a document that shows emphatically, undeniably that.... (Hold on, someone is at my door )
Oh high, why are you here?
No! No! I didn’t mean to arrghhhhh.
