    Damn, I have been browsing the page on and off since 2006, not posting much.

    Randomly opened it today after a year or so, and this is quite a bit sad :(

    Thanks for the page while it lasted.

    I got my hand on some prototype development hardware/software while working for a studio back in 2012. Kev reached out for me and asked if he can get a copy of the software and a video detailing on the hardware for the site archiving purposes and he promised not to reveal my identity. I believed him so I did give him what he asked. He then came back and asked for more but I declined the second time. He got mad so he released all of my info along with the photos/videos I've sent him. The company came across the posts 6 months later and knew it was me so the had to let me go due to violation of NDA. I was lucky that they didn't pursue any legal actions. I have since then reached out to Kev multiple times asking him to take down my personal info because I keep getting random phone calls asking about the post he made but he ignored. I have consulted an attorney and they said it doesn't worth it to go after internet doxxing unless it causes physical harm such as swating or the doxer is an internet celebrity. A few trusted members on here such as @Borman or @jollyroger know that my info is still floating around somewhere on the net with Kev's posts.


    Update: I shared my story so that everyone should be careful dealing with sensitive data/info in the future. I've moved on and got a new job shortly after that incident. I'm happy with where I'm at now. Thanks for all the supports

    There's way too much info for this to be gone forever. Maybe we could all contribute somehow to keep it up?

    Yep, it happened, and it was an easy-enough thing to fix for him, he just didn't.

    Thank you for sharing this cautionary tale. Sorry to hear that you had such a negative experience as a direct result of the actions of the owner of this site.

    This is one of many reasons why this site needs to come to an end. It has been an amazing haven of knowledge and community over the years. It has felt like a second home with some crazy obscure knowledge and mad skills but it has run its course and people need to let it go.

    When it is gone, will you be able to get your info removed from the archived versions?

    Awful awful behavior. Reading that I kinda don't mind the site crapping the bed. Already on OG and posting away.

    I'll never forget this site covering for one of the staff members selling a fake Saturn proto on Yahoo Japan Auctions. This place has always had wrong doing going on in the background, huh?

    To add, the same member of staff tried to con me the same way a few years later, and I still have the emails to prove it.

    Man, what a site~

    That's not even excusable behaviour. I remeber the "Assembler forums has been hacked, please delete all your PM's to protect your info" carry on happening around the same time, meanwhile he goes and does that? Fuck him, seriously.

    Hi everyone!
    I was more kind of a reader than a writer here.
    But I will miss this site too.

    Have a great life and peace for all!
