It is not public here and poor redbar was banned at wus for posting it.

The mods knew where the info came from and likely assumed I was posting it under a fake account so, predictably, they banned both the fake account and mine. Which is what I said would happen if the info was posted outside of this forum.

I'll start building a sales rep up over there yet again.

Nah, Brad Holmes had seen all the email correspondence and would have picked it up instantly as a fake account being used to post the material and probably just assumed it was me behind it.

No, just the account. It takes Ernie to take it that step further into full paranoia.

The annoying thing was I played it very cool and all the parties were seeing me as a good guy (maybe less so Brad) as I was looking to try and milk the Doxa guy for more info.

Brad has been checking IP's and now banned my other WUS account and called me a troll. WTF.

I emailed him and said he has got the wrong guy - I was at sea and had no internet or phone access for that week. There is no way I posted Koi's stuff.

So far he is blanking me. Which makes me wonder if he is actually just pissed that I talked to Verticalscope about the privacy issue once he failed to act. That would be something VS should address as it is a much bigger issue than the usual day-to-day forum politics.

Just sent them an email.

Just sent them an email.



I have contacted verticalscope and included photos of emails made to me by doxa mods regarding posts about orange dials which ended up getting me banned. They actually used my name in the emails I received and on WUS. I tend to be annoyed by forum bullies as is well known so included with my letter to verticalscope is what is below.

They have been informed that unless certain conditions are met, the domains which are similar to theirs will lead either to here or to a porn site. It is my hope they say fuck you so I can point them to transgender porn sites. As far as Doxa goes, We own numerous doxa related domains, all point here but perhaps in honor of rick and the rest of the doxa trolls, those domains should point to greasy anal sex with animals.

No response from VerticalScope, so I assume they are not going to intervene. I'm not very surprised as its a potentially thorny road to go down from their perspective.

Oh well, tried and prosecuted for something its not even possible that I could have done. Nice work WUS Mods!

Its an interesting history though. Banned for complaining about Isofrane admitting to breaching data privacy the first time, and now banned again following a complaint that Doxa might have done the same.

I'm sure there is a lesson here.

A lesson indeed. Definition of the word "forum":

From Merriam-Webster:

a :the marketplace or public place of an ancient Roman city forming the center of judicial and public business
b :a public meeting place for open discussion The club provides a forum for people interested in local history.
c :a medium (such as a newspaper or online service) of open discussion or expression of ideas


When money rules the roost, there is no open discussion; where there is finance going on, finance rules. If one needs to constantly watch one's words, in order not to give the slightest offence, particularly where profits are concerned, then it is not a "forum." It's a marketplace, not of ideas, but of commodities, and that's pretty much what WUS is, a marketplace for watches and places to shill watches (and overpriced rubber straps.)

The only places where free speech seems to exist on WUS is, from my narrow POV, the Orient subforum, mainly because nobody seems to bother with it except a few enthusiasts. Otherwise, it pays off to keep your mouth shut, lay low, and when you want to unload an SKX007 or an Oris Sixty-Five, well, go to it, homeboy.

You want to write your opinions freely, well, there's here, and that's maybe about it, apart from BDWF and a few others that I don't know about. To try to pretend that WUS is some sort of forum is silly. Anything that smacks of controversy will be quashed, by one of the jack-booted thugs that Verticalscope employs over there for pennies and swag.

It's all about the Benjamins, baby.

It is. And it highlights the problem of treating companies as citizens.

I notice Apple trying to set up 'Town Squares' for customers to congregate and treat as public spaces. Its a real-world extension of corporate run forums like WUS. I hope they fail to gain traction as bringing corporations into our social lives really isn't a good idea at all.

We can always put up webpages with the below domains stating how fucked up WUS is and Doxa and the Doxa fanbois and mods. Watchlords owns those domain names. We could also point them to raunchy animal sex. :shock:

All Brad had to do was go into his messages and see who it was that complained about getting emails from Doxa. That was kind of easy for him to see that it was Carl and realize that Carl either put the info out to others or he started a second account. They may believe him to be redbar. Either way Carl is screwed with his IP address and will have some finagling to do to get another account.

Man. All this because a couple of guys who know watches wanted to tell the absolute truth.

I've always said that's the very reason I've always wanted more members here - serious hobbyists to know stuff that's dug up like this. It's the good work we do, and only fan bois and/or commercial flotsam could not want to read it.

Nah, there are easy workarounds with software that spoofs IP addresses. If Carl wants in, he can get in.

I used them years ago when a group of us went rogue at beeradvocate.com after the wife of the owner started personal attacks and permabans based on reviews she didn’t like and criticism of the site selling out to corporate beer America.

Those were good times.
