There's been some developments on the situation since the last topic was started, and it was decided that there should be a post made about it.

These developments caused the mods to be split on whether or not his account should be de-activated. In addition to further soliciting members of this site it is also been reported that he is actually part owner of the other fantasy MMA site. At some point his account was deactivated. Debate ensued, with many of the mods agreeing that the situation was handled poorly on my part. Eventually a vote was taken in which all were asked to vote on the course of action based on current circumstances. The majority was in favor of leaving his account deactivated for now.

I won't rule out the possibility of finding a solution more agreeable to those of you wanting Rabi to come back, but for now his account won't be reactivated, and he himself would have to want to come back. Eventually everyone will cool off, digital life will carry on, and if the parties involved want to let bygones be bygones at some point and move forward, then we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I have no business or knowledge to post on this matter at all...but since the title of the thread was so damn enticing, I had to click and read it. Since I'm here and everyone is posting bad ass gifs...I guess I'll post one of me peacin' out of this thread.

I see a potential gold mine here. I have not seen this much pointless drama since I forced myself to watch one episode of The Real World.

Maybe I'm reading something wrong here but from the looks of this thread it looks like a bunch of people who don't really know how to react.

Whether the MOD's liked it or not from the face of these boards it looks like Rabi put in more work to this site than the majority of the MODs over the last year or so. Yes things might go on behind the scenes but from where I stand and I'm sure other members, it appears that the admins have just left the site to die.

Rabi logged in daily, maintained what he started, made the site enjoyable to others, and put full commitment into this site.

If he recruited people who did it actually work on???? Now I'm a close friend of Ray and I know Patrick is too, he recruited us but did we ever leave? No. He wanted us to be a part of the PG and he wanted to team up with the PG. he wanted to make big steps with the management. How'd I know this because I heard him out. But he got fed up of waiting...

It seems this thread is full of people posting as there scared that all the work they put into this site will also go for simply speaking there mind.

George made a thread and all I read from it are posters are scared they might be cut. The PG died from 1 bad admin making a ridiculous amount of cuts. It feels like its gone back to that.

The reality is Ray probably wouldn't have comeback anyway so cutting him just scares the members more.

Without FastKO, prophecy, grappler and fleek the news would be dead. Without Kpro the off topic grinds to a halt.

Thank fuck the likes of Budge, Bubbles and Prozac post in practically every thread.
Then the likes of Jake, kopower, grappler, sparky, poor franklin, airkerma Shane, DD15, cowcatcher, postman, spidersilva, shawn, Chael, and others log in daily to give the pages views.

I just think to many others Rays done more to this site on face value than so many others and deactivating his account was weak as fuck. Suspension, maybe justifiable but come on....
