It wasn't him, it was someone else.  I will pm the details (full message) to anyone wanting to read.  I don't want them to ban me for something foolish which it sounds like they would have no issue in doing so.  I still enjoy the site, some of the members  that I trade with, and post on occasion, but not near as much as I use to.  This site and marvelousnews.com gets the majority of my attention now.

I'd love to read that PM.

I used to keep a couple where they got onto me about having a UK forum in signature.

Funny read to say the least.  I'm not surprised at all, especially considering who wrote it.

For saying that, their spies will probably see this and ban me...

Okay, I think I want to see that PM also.  Hit me up, if you don't mind, Shmash.

It's pretty much who I thought it would be but the way he worded his PM to Shmash was very disingenuous and almost sounds bitter.  I didn't expect that, but it's par for the course for who wrote it.

They've always had a policy on signatures over there but if it's not derogatory and doesn't contain links to competing sites, I thought they usually left it alone.  Now I really want to know more of the backstory of why they parted ways with Dan.

yeah, I am still clueless as to what happened and why Dan was "fired".  I would be interested if anyone has the scoop   ;)

He's mentioned special projects two different times on Facebook that I know of.  One turned out to be Sansweet's upcomming book The Ultimate Action Figure Collection.  I wonder if he worked on that, taking photos, and didn't get "permission" from RS?  Some type of non-compete clause he broke or something?  Maybe they were just pissed that RS wouldn't be the only venue for Curto's photos?

Maybe it's this other project he's mentioned?  I guess we'll have to wait for some type of announcement from him.  I'd be hard pressed to think that he wouldn't at least end up on staff of another website.  He's close with James that runs the UK Jedi News site...don't have to actually be in the UK to do photo archives or post news.

I think the other project is his work with Topps doing sketch cards for Mars Attacks series. As to his work on the Sansweet book, I think his envolvment happened after his departure from RS.

He announced his "firing" a few weeks ago but on Twitter they were talking about working on the book, although exactly what they were doing wasn't specified at the time, a few weeks before that.  So I don't know when he started working on it.

It's all just guess work.

Now I'm morbidly curious about this PM.  I always looked at getting banned from there as a badge of honor.

I still love the photo of Chris and JediMac with PW.  Priceless!

Had a bad experience with the MODs over at RS a long time ago.
It was silly.  I made a newbie mistake and was scolded like Full Metal Jacket and never went back.
I remember thinking that yeah, the MOD was right, but it was the way they went about it.  Clowns.  no tact.
Bunch of drapes over there.

Nothing beats Chris' look like, "Hey!  It's me!  Remember me?  You hate me and my site!  Hah!", and Philip just think it's people treating him like a celebretard.  And Matt's just loving the moment.  He's like Captain JMACrica.
