My personal piece of cyberspace

Martin Brampton speaks up

Posted in Content management on May 23rd, 2006

Things are heating up on the Mamboserver forums. I was able to copy this text posted by Martin Brampton, former Mambo Foundation member, before it was deleted.

This was originally posted in a thread on the Mambo forums that is now deleted. Due to the fact that I had subscribed to the thread, I was lucky enough to get copies of the posts directly to my e-mail.

hazman (moderator on the forums and member of mambo steering committee) originally posted:

Martin (aka counterpoint) resigned from the Mambo Foundation, in other words from Mambo, not from Mambo Communities who owns these forums. Martin left Mambo, he left us. Martin couldn’t wait until the transfer of Mambo to the Mambo Foundation site, which is in the process.

As a reply to this, Brampton (aka counterpoint) quoted the above and posted the following:

I strongly object to this gross mis-statement of my views and actions. However there is little point me attempting to give the true reasons for my resignation here since this forum has become so heavily censored. If you would like to know what is really happening, then you will need to look elsewhere.

Following the deletion of this post and many other posts from this and other related threads, all of Martin Bramptons posts from before january 30th 2006 were deleted from forum.mamboserver.com. He is not the only one that has had this happen to him either, so it seems that a major restructuring of the member base is going on…

    Do you think he asked for his posts to be deleted? If not, what a bunch of crap! Are they TRYING to pull their own plug? What is there to gain with this type of activity? These hot heads need to step aside and let someone lead who cares to save what is left of Mambo. Idiots.

    I know he didn’t ask for his posts to be deleted. He was just as surprised as I was.

    A lot of people has had their posts deleted my the admins at Mamboserver’s forums. I gave up posting there a long time ago. They ARE pulling their own plug. No doubt about it.
