Knish read on Twitter that Michael "fuckin" Davis tweeted a picture of his dick (he's reported to be a grower and not a shower) to some chick. The picture wa linked in the old Diamond Jim's playground section of Geeks and now Uncle Eyal is flipping out.

Last tweet I saw had Davis blaming watchlords, claiming they hacke Diamond Jim's Playground an that he was getting the FBI involved.

From past history it seems they are lacking IT skills and adherence to best practices (ex. Change Control)

Most likely MD was a little too evasive stripping out all the Renato items on the site and stepped on something

The server crashed; actually it self-destructed. The entire site is being re-located to a much more powerful host and should be back on line shortly.

Whatcha wanna bet we see something like the following:

"There were difficulties restoring the database after the crash. We've had to roll back to a version archived back in March of 2011."

(thus in one fell swoop wiping the existence of all of the Renato controversies as well as Skelton's exit from the face of the earth.)

Betcha.

WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

A scene from "Das (Armbanduhr) Boot":

Take her up to periscope depth, Chief. Ja, Herr Kapitan! Up periscope! Target? Ja, Herr Kapitan! Load tube number one! Jawohl, Herr Kapitan! Range? Zwolfhundert meters, Herr Kapitan! Very well - Torpedo los! Torpedo on target, Herr Kapitan! (ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka ticka) BOOM! Direct hit! The server is down - completely destroyed! Nice shooting, gentlemen! Stupid geeks, they never learn. Down periscope. Ja Herr Kapitan! Take her down to zweihundert meters, Chief - resume original heading and we'll continue our patrol. Jawohl, Herr Kapitan!

Since we are usually accused of starting conspiracies am not sure if I should say this.

Is the site going down shortly after "Renatogate" came to a head just a coincidence ?
Perhaps Mink contacted Lalo not MD and threatened legal action and he chose to shut it down

Am aware that controversies/screw-ups are a daily occurrence for those guys so this may be just the normal flow of things.

Perhaps MD in his rush to start his Vegas vacation forgot to tell his boys to watch the site

Perhaps it is undergoing another purge of non-paying or posting geek members.

Plausible. MD was way out of line on those comments, preserved here for the readers enjoyment.

Maybe the hands fell off the site?

I smell bullshit.... or complete and utter incompetence, take your pick.

You mean that after the last hacking fiasco, no one made any fucking effort to make sure the forum software was updated/patched?

Figures.

You do realize that by utilizing the word smegma - the Watchgeek members that are lurking here will have to use the google search to know what smegma is, don't you?

Thanks, holmes! I'm trying to be Green and warm and fuzzy, but today I'm finding too much of a target-rich environment.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.
