Jesus says that Sam Ajemian controls all the ex-members. Certainly that must include all ex-member sites. That being the truth, Sam must be responsible for his own ex-communication from NDN.
But seriously folks...
From time to time, there is a serious problem that slops over to different boards. Some of the people who run the boards to communicate privately from time to time. Regarding this specific situation, I had been in communication with the operators of all the ex-member boards in an effort to keep the matter private while trying to help find a way to get the matter investigated by professionals. Because it involved a minor, none of us (except Sam, who also runs a web site) thought it was appropriate to post the situation for public comsumption.
I'm not exactly sure what logic went into banning Sam for what he posted here, unless the person making that decision feared he would also post the info on NDN.
Another thing I've never understood was given that he runs a website of his own, why he didn't post it on his own site, rather than exposing this one to the whole mess.
The General Coordinator of this site had agreed to keep that information off, but he was out of town when Sam posted, and it took a few days to get it deleted, giving the whole story wide exposure.
It was a big mess. I'm still pissed off about it. If you ask me in a year, I'll probably still be pissed off about it. Sam just wanted a "scoop", and he didn't care who it hurt. Me, the Ex-Member, or the young teenage girl. But, Sam is such a hero to some folks, that he can do no wrong, and the biggest question on everyones lips is "when will sam be reinstated on NDN?".
Come to think of it, Jesus may have picked up on something.
