    I've never donated, but I feel sorry for those that did. Shady business

    Stoi's an idiot. BC gets hacked all the time. James has always been a retard. And he clearly says at first
    How does he go from "cheat the draw somehow" to "i always planned on honouring the contest"

    Ironically, I've been desperately trying to get an account from BC lately. The last one I got was banned and I know they've a great library of games so I'll definitely need one. But I wouldn't donate one of those sites. I would probably donate to Torrentbytes though, those guys know what they're doing and they're doing a very good job.

    Yeah, I mean, if you're willing to shell out a couple bucks for donations the best route to go would just be to subscribe to a usenet server. Then you don't have to worry about seeding back or getting banned. Or getting your money stolen.

    After this though who's going to bother with them? They aren't going to be able to get any donations if they ever need them.

    here are some logs of convos stoi has had with fellow mods and admins, as well as a list of things stoi has bought in the past year.

    http://www.sarteck.com/

    i suppose really though stoi has the right to do what he wishes with donations as long as the site stays up and any kind of contest he decides to hold is honoured.

    some good people got banned from there though for unearthing the truth. which is really too bad. i'm not sure stoi would have honoured the draw if it wasn't for these people. plus they really helped out around the site.

    Fureal. We need a producer here to see the potential of this being a television series.

    Can someone type up a brief summary? I've had an account for a while now but have no idea what's going on or who these leaders are (sounds interesting though).

    eh it's no big deal if you didn't donate. nothing to worry about. if you did donate stoi is making things right. if you want an idea of what happened read the link i posted. the best thing to do really though from here on out i think is keep your money in your wallet and just let this die.
    it's exacly wht phood said, geek drama haha
