Doc Martin has been banned from her own board.
To make a long story short one co-owner got mad that Abomb keeps harassing people for believing in God (which he does by the way ALL THE TIME) and when Abomb showed up at the board today he had been banned. Doc was banned too. Also someone named Heff.
When I first read that Doc was banned from her own board I was like Crazy Abomb but lets just say that Kerri Fairy is correct here. Abomb does harass and belittle anyone that believes in God and just because Doc doesn’t want to acknowledge it doesn’t make it less of a fact. Good for Kerri Fairy.
“God” and I are luke warm but if anyone wants to believe in him I don’t think I have the right to treat them like crap. Abomb is just a wanna be God. Isn’t it ironic he hates what he wishes he was?
Apparently a new board will be up soon. I think I will stay away.
GGMB is pretty dead unless a meet is happening anyway. It is more about College gymnastics.
It will be very interesting to see if Abomb can get the same money to keep the place alive that he got on GGMB. I can see that board dying a slow death.
The myth of GGMB is bigger than the board itself.
Hopefully this means the end of GGMB and the harassment and insanity of Abomb will be dead. Stay tuned.
Here is what Kerri Fairy just wrote on GGMB
…must come to an end, or so it is said.
THE KERRIFAIRY MANIFESTO
My Dearest Darlings,
This morning, open board war was declared. I know you gossipmongers are just DYING to hear what happened, and more, and so you shall have your wish.
At the outset, I want to take the opportunity to sincerely thank all of you who have sent me PMs of support today, and in the past. I also want to publicly apologize to anyone and everyone who has been hurt by anything I have ever done in connection with this site or GGMB’s past incarnations, and specifically for allowing anyone to be bullied or subjected to abuse of powers for what has been about nine years now.
Reasonable people don’t disagree that everybody is entitled to believe whatever they want in religious terms. Those principles have long been enshrined in documents like the US Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the latter by many nations of the world and all the way back in the 1940s, mind you. GGMB was never supposed to be a site which promoted any religion or even irreligion. We all came here to discuss gymnastics, and not really much more, except for getting to know, appreciate and love one another, and to be catty and funny.
I met Doc Marten and ABomb at the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships, on the very night Svetlana took home her third absolute all around crown. And shortly afterward, I found myself moderating. It’s not something I sought or asked for or lobbied for, it was something I was asked to do out of the blue. “Why not?” is one of my favorite questions, and so I came aboard.
Most of you know the drama surrounding the firing of past moderators already, so I’ll skip straight to the part where ABomb gets us kicked off Excoboard. We were really in a bind, because we wanted a place where THE MAN couldn’t tell us what we could and couldn’t say. So I offered to host GGMB and to ask personal favors of my friend, Lang, in order to get us up and running. From then until now, GGMB has been at gymgossip.com, which is my URL. And I took a lot of risks through the years hosting GGMB, because I personally received legal threats from the Gymw.orld asshole and from Sue over stupid bullshit ABomb either said or instigated.
In later years, ABomb started treating me like I was his younger brother, and it was something that made me feel uncomfortable, especially coming from a colleague. I am the oldest brother, and as all oldest children know, sometimes we have to step in when the kids are getting into mischief and put an end to it. Here is an example:
And, so, when I turn her down, she gets cuntier and CUNTLIER. Toward the end of last year, upon learning that I have the audacity to believe in God, he told me it was the “ULTIMATE BETRAYAL”. Yes, really.
For the sake of EVERYBODY’s enjoyment of the board, I proposed a resolution through Doc Marten in December that ABomb tone down the bullying and abuses of power, especially when it came to religion. And he agreed to do so until after this Olympics. Then, not too long afterward, and the threads remain on the site, he chews somebody out for even mentioning prayers and well wishes to an injured Gabby, and shuts down another user in the SAC thread, blaming SAC’s faith on brainwashing by her boyfriend.
But, can’t it get any dishier than that? Because that’s exactly what ABomb accused me of last December and this morning: that I have been brainwashed by a twink cultmember. I don’t know how spun you have to be to cook shit up like that, but it’s way more than a nickel bag. So, please don’t believe the bullshit and LYEZ, or believe it if you want. It hardly matters any more.
I knew in December that it was all over when ABomb declared, “This is not a dictatorship.” My heart skipped a beat, because that is the perennial cry of every dictator spanning history. And I realized that GGMB really had run its course, or at least the show we had been putting on, well the ship had sailed, bitches. They’re playing all these re-runs of Little House of the Prairie on TV all the time, and it reminded me that we didn’t need a 9th season. The show had been over for a while when Shannen Doherty came along. Many of the Star Trek series decided to just end it after seven seasons, because things were good and it was time to quit. As many of you know, because I spoke with some of you about this, I told Doc and Abomb I was quitting after my 7th year, because it was time. But, they wouldn’t let me leave because, and I quote, “that would mean Sue wins”. In other words, everybody would know Sue was right about ABomb driving people away.
ABomb is short for ABOMBination, like an abominable meltdown or some shit, if you have really been paying attention. I don’t know what happened in the past to so disaffect him with the concepts of God and religion and the sort, and maybe it doesn’t matter. But what does matter on a site supposedly dedicated to the sport and art form of gymnastics, and the gossip, is that people be free from an agenda forced on its users by staff, bullying, abusing powers, and a literal obsession with making sure people agree with his irreligion. Several of you have bravely come to me in complaint. Whereas in years past I may have ignored you or even reported to you ABomb for complaining about him, I then realized that when these complaints became persistent, people were really upset.
I made several propositions to Doc in the past few months, including that the entire old moderator staff step down and new moderators be elected by the users, and offered as recently as this morning to allow Doc to continue hosting GGMB on this site, so long as ABomb was no part of it. Those of you who are the closest to ABomb know you would be liars if you said you never heard him say the most rotten, despicable and disparaging things about Doc. He hates her, and treats her with scorn, ridicule and contempt behind her back. And he has told me he only keeps her around because she was like the one in the boardroom who had the one good idea decades ago to create the company, and the board just let’s them stick around. ABomb made it CLEAR when I first started as a mod that he was in charge of GGMB, and that I did not need to listen to what Doc had to say.
Doc is a grown woman, and she has a mind of her own. The more I got to know her, and visit with her, the more I liked her, and the less I liked ABomb. Because he was nasty and a hater without respite. This morning, Doc informed me she will be taking GGMB to the new ABomb board. She gave me a lot of excuses about how ABomb gets drunk, and we should all allow for his tirades. Whatever! I have zero qualms with any of you wanting to go there. If you would like a notification from Doc about the new GGMB, or to speak with her, her public e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
The show is over with GGMB on this site. ABomb has clutched on to power for over a decade now, and it is at an end, at least here. He can’t hurt you any more. The bullying and abuse are at an end. I gave ABomb a GOOD DOSE OF HER OWN MEDICINE this morning, and she choked on it. The entire staff has been fired, and even though I will admit that neither Betty nor RankerMatt ever did anything to deserve it, we have to move on. Anyone who has been unable to come to terms with this state of affairs has been banned, which has really only been a handful of members and former mods.
This site has been paid for through I think about November. The show is over for me, too. We will have FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS for a new moderator staff, to include four new moderators, when nominations are complete. If you would like to nominate yourself, or somebody else, to lead the future or the end of this site, please let us know in this thread. I will assist the new staff until after I host my third coverage of the Olympic Games with you, and I will retire. If the new staff wants to keep this place going and raise some money, that’s their choice. If they want to party like it’s 2099 until November and let this place die, that’s their choice, too.
Nominations for new moderators will be accepted for the next three or four days. After that, the elections will be set up by POLE. Nobody who has served in the past as a moderator may apply. Anyone who would be totally fucking banned from this place but for ABomb’s personal protection is likewise ineligible, although after aevera, that leaves only the one of you. I will moderate this board in the interregnum between now and the election.
Several users who posted messages in support of me this morning were banned by the former staff. If you know who any of these people were, and they want back in, please let me know by PM.
Oh, and the current world champions are the good old team USA, Jordy, McKayla, Komova, that one pixie, and Afan.
For those who are wondering why the colors on the screen capture above are different, it is because it was taken from G6, which is the SEKRET site on GGMB. To protect the innocent, I will not name names, but G6 was the site created after ABomb insisted there were too many “leakers” on GGMB2, known as G2, and it is a pretty small crowd anymore. I have closed G6 as of today. We’ll be having no more secret sites and favored treatment.
I can’t believe that Donna Summer’s faith in God is what sent ABomb over the edge this morning, but it is further proof of his obsession with keeping anyone he can from believing in whatever they want. But Donna was like Tammy Faye Bakker with the fags. We could give a fuck what they believed. They were fabulous and the queens loved them for THEM. The winner of the RuPaul Show this year had a huge tattoo of Tammy Faye on her arm, okay? It doesn’t get much gayer than that. Anyone who knows their gay history knows of METROPOLITAN COMMUNITY CHURCH. You don’t have to be an atheist to be gay, and nobody deserves to have that ideology pushed on them, especially under threats or coercion.
It’s over. ABomb can’t hurt you any more. You can say “God” again on this site. Nobody’s pushing religion, and nobody will push irreligion. It’s over, girls.
When I have said in the past that I LOVE YOU ALL, it is because I mean it. You fans are the BEST fans of our sport, and having met so many of you, please know my love for you is true and from the bottom of my heart. I also love Doc, who was a great friend for a lot of years, and I also continue to love ABomb, even after all that has happened, because he needs to be loved the most! I will caution you, however, if he loved me as much as he did, and tossed me out of his life, as with so many others, it can and probably will happen to you, too.
Give me some names. This place needs moderators!
And I know where all the skeletons of GGMB are buried, so if you have any questions, ask away. If you just want to bitch and moan about how wonderful and great ABomb is, why don’t you go tell him and Doc that at their new site? Saying it to me will get you told to fuck yourself, and buy you a one-way ticket out the door. Just a fair warning.
I am that bitch.
