Does anyone know who owns Amirite now, and why are they trying to do their own site in?

I mean people are banned (not warned or suspended), for the damnest reasons while the owner and moderators lurk in the shadows.

There are only a few SH people left. :(

Doesn't Anthony still own it?  I hadn't heard of a change in ownership. Yeah, he has cracked down on some of the habitual TOS violators. You can see the reasons if you search the banned people's user names.

And you'll be pleased to hear that I am one of the few SH people still on Amirite. :)

I am pleased to know that. :)

To be honest? I barely remember anything about Amirite. When I was finally able to surf again, I looked at it when someone asked me to come back and it looked like a kiddie site, so I deactivated my account. I go on SW here and there but that place is toxic.

Amirite is a good place to forget. A couple of the worst former offenders have been kicked off, but they've been replaced by what appear to be a lot of users with multiple phony profiles, posting silly questions.

Amirite was so different when we first joined, really an exceptional site. I am so glad you are doing well, Rooster.

dru tiger Rooster ago

The worst offenders? They kicked off just about everyone!

TheOtherTink Rooster ago

Well, one needs to distinguish between those who were banned outright for TOS violations, and the many who voluntarily left because it just wasn't interesting anymore.

dru tiger Rooster ago

I honestly think the two go hand in hand.

I'm not sure why, but there is a lot of garbage to wade through these days.  I'm still there, but don't visit nearly as often as I used to.

dru tiger JanHaskell ago

I agree, Jan. It was really an interesting site when we all first joined but now it like a little kiddie site. If it weren't for a couple of people who are still there I would be gone.

I tried to upvote your response, but the system wouldn't let me.  Consider this a thumbs up! 8-)

I do not know who is an owner. I do not use amirite. I just visited it and I think many users are small children.

I think you are right.

dru tiger Kninjanin ago

The owners are Anthony, Oliver, and one other person.

TheOtherTink Kninjanin ago

I never knew of Oliver before.

dru tiger Kninjanin ago

He was the former owner, when we all first joined.

TheOtherTink Kninjanin ago

I thought it was someone named James, or are you talking about before that?

dru tiger Kninjanin ago

James was a super moderator and somebody who ran the advertisement end of the site. Oliver was the one who bought Amirite years ago from Anthony. James worked for Oliver.

TheOtherTink Kninjanin ago

I was never aware of all these dealings before. :unsure:
