Dom you are leading a number of threads that are making basic and deep changes in CAP including the certificfication process and our banning policies. Obviously this is being dont while I am being told to be silent so I have no input!!!!! This is essentially stripping me from CAP and destroying the policies I worked so hard to create and which have been so successful over the last eight years. Were you instructed to do this? I am assuming you were and this is a VERY serious issue both legally and morally. Please let me know WTF is going on?February 9, 2009 at 3:55 pm #794817AnonymousInactive
Just letting people make suggestions. Warren said the certification was being changed and so people can voice ideas.
People have been leaving in droves because they feel they can’t express themselves, so it makes sense to let them do so.
It’s all working out very well, you can go through the threads and pick out useable suggestions and everyone will be happy.:hattip:February 9, 2009 at 4:22 pm #794818
Ok so its Warren… Thanks for the heads up. We are NOT reformating CAP its extremely successfult the way it is. Yes there are a few negative posts on other boards but as a community we contine to prosper and grow.
Casinomeister is a Player Board and the handful of posters there dont attend CAP events, receive our magazines, support our programs or even care for affiliates. I am not going to let them be the lightning rod that determines CAPs success or failure.
We had several discussions with GPWA and one in which I was there also for two hours and they have agreed to work with us in a positive manner moving forward.
The months of harrassment that went on before London were unprovoked. I am not going to be made some sort of sacrificial lamb in this. Hopefully Michaels word is worth something we can finally put all this behind us.
I DID NOT AUTHORIZE A REDESIGN OR RETHINKING OF CAP. I AM MAJORITY SHARE HOLDER AND PRESIDENT OF CAP’s PARENT COMPANY. PLEASE STOP THIS TRACK IMMEDIATELY.
THIS FORCES MY HAND PUBLICALLY NOW and I understand a little better why I was constantly prodded to remain silent rather then come back and help promote our upcoming events.
This behavior makes me sick and I didnt expect it of people in my organization or from a senior moderator who I considered one of my best allies in the business.

I think you are totally over reacting. How can asking member input be a coup?February 9, 2009 at 4:31 pm #794820
Changing certification and changing board moderation policy while I am muzzled is a major reorg and should not have been donw when I was muzzled.
I am not over reacting. I am FINALLY reacting. I will deal with Warren later and see why this was being done. But thats an internal comapny issue. You did what you were asked.February 9, 2009 at 4:45 pm #794822AnonymousInactive
Asking the membership for suggestions was my idea. People love being involved, and they have often very good ideas.
The ban thread was my idea too, I thought it would be good to lay down the law and let people be part of it. I think you’ll be happy with the support these things will get.
No one told me to start threads, you know after all these years that this does not happen. I did check with Warren though if it was ok.
Please don’t get all mad now, Lou. I think it is all doing very well and I thought you would be happy to see everyone agreeing and contributing and standing behind CAP.February 9, 2009 at 4:53 pm #794824
Dom Did you threaten Warren and say you and Christine were leaving CAP if these changes werent made?February 9, 2009 at 4:54 pm #794826AnonymousInactive
I hope threats were not made on my behalf and without my permissionFebruary 9, 2009 at 5:11 pm #794829AnonymousInactive
I don’t speak for Christine.
You asked me in London to try to make all the crap go away and I did start to do that.
I don’t threaten people, but I was getting very weary of all the constant upsets around here, it is bad for my asthma and general health and I was considering leaving.
However, I didn’t want to let you all down and so I did proceed with what has proven to be a great plan to bring the community back together and have everyone be supportive.
The last few days, because of this, I am feeling a lot better about staying on again. Things are settling down and moving forward in a positive way, and people stopped leaving cap, and some are posting again who had practially left.
So I feel very positive and I feel I came through on my promise in London.
I don’t even understand what you are upset about.February 9, 2009 at 5:11 pm #794831AnonymousInactive
This is how shit has gone down for me Lou. I am not sure if you realize how much the mods are considered the backbone of forums but they actually are. We are what you would call the front line of defense and all of us have been taking and dealing with a lot of heat over the last few weeks with everything that has gone down with cardspike and post that were made in haste and in anger. This has made me for 1 very uncomfortable because I have a love the whole CAP community and I hate to see all this going down. Your temper has set things back more then once and please do not think I am picking on you because I am not. But this am you posted yet again without coming in private to talk to Dom and Warren, the things you posted is none of the concern of the public it looks bad really bad now Lou. You cannot have your enemies thinking CAP is falling apart from the inside out!
I have no idea what was said to Warren but I have said to Dom that I will help do what I can to fix the mess but I have a business of my own to run and cannot get in battles. I was watching out and keeping my ears open in London for you all as well. I did say that if I keep getting pressure from people and if this mess does start to get in the way of my business I will have to leave as a mod. I hope it does not ever get to that point and I hope things will be settled down soon.
PS I am really looking forward to Mexico is it time yet? I need a drink on a beach.February 9, 2009 at 5:26 pm #794834
I appreciate both your efforts and concerns. You are very valuable team members in my eyes and I hope you feel the same about me.
Over the last few months I have been continually provoked and both of you are aware of that. My response to that provocation may have made you uncomfotable and for that I appologize.
I will address any other internal company issues I have too, but as far as I am concerned you are both great people in my eyes and I would never want to lose you as modersators, allies or friends.
It’s time I came back and became the professor again. Its what CAP needs and as a business owner its what I need too. I hope you can understand and support me.February 9, 2009 at 5:37 pm #794835
Public posts have been softened.
