Mod announcement: Peace, y'all.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that as of whenever the admins make it happen I'll be stepping down as a mod of LVL. I recently received threats of violence from someone in the forum and it's absolutely not worth the risk to continue on. I loved modding this forum for a long time, but when people take things too seriously, it's time to move on.

To the person who clearly does not like me: I guess you win.

I'll still be around talking about food and other Vegas things, but just figured I'd give you a heads up.

This is a huge suck! It is really unfortunate. But it's great to hear you will be sticking around for other things.

Thanks for all the great modding you did around here over the years!

Thanks for doing a thankless job, shame to see the wackos run you off.

Hopefully you'll have more time now to participate in the food thread as well as your Vegas restaurant thread.

All the best amigo!

You'll be fine going forward. It's a good catalyst toward monetizing your site and to stop spending your time AQ'ing 2+2 and soon you'll be living large. Good luck.

So this is a serious thing? Jeez Jimmy, take care of yourself of course. I love you.

To the wacko threatening my son: F you buddy. I hope you understand karma.

A loss for the forum, and truly despicable behavior from whatever troll caused it.

As gobbomom so eloquently put it, go F yourself buddy.

Deeply sorry to read.

Exclusively to preempt future victimization of others, I hope identifying information has been or will be passed on to the authorities.

With great appreciation of your contributions.

Re: Mod announcement: Peace, y'all.

Disgusting behaviour by whoever it was. Presumably it involved the vlog thread.
I hope in this instance the offender is named and shamed
It's time that thread was closed down anyway.

Thanks for your input Jimmy.

Bright side: think of the increased free time you will have for pokerz and food website.

Also; you should pursue charges at what you are deeming a credible threat; call the cops.

then yesterday 7/3 at 7:20 PM (21 hours later) he makes this announcement stating that he has received death threats and is stepping down. can't help but think that one of trooper's THUG buddies from South Carolina is behind the threats. Hope they are able to track down this THUG's ip and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

Re: Mod announcement: Peace, y'all.

****ing shameful. i've seen gobbo take some brutal abuse in the form of insults but for someone to take it to this level is really pathetic. i feel bad for the human race that a 2+2 thread could incite even one moron to incite enuf of a threat that it chases away someone who has invested so much time and energy selflessly

well to be fair, the guy who threatened him must be mentally ill, not much of an explanation other than that
