I had been long wondering when the next high-profile MyBroadband member would be banned: its been quiet for a long time now, but this week, it happened. MagicDude4Eva (aka Gerd Naschenweng- CTO of BidOrBuy) is the newest unperson: MagicDude4Eva
The victim of Rudolph's latest power trip reveals all the details on his blog here.
The ban was triggered due to Gerd filing a PAIA request to MyBroadband (PTY) LTD- It relates to the fact that Afrihost are spamming and the issue was, in essence, covered up on MyBB, because, as we all know, companies that pay for their plugs essentially pay protection money- protection against criticism, protection against being exposed, etc..
In this post, Zoopy refers to the boundary, and that is exactly what it is: you complain about a company that pays protection money, you are in shit for "dissing them" or saying anything that is construed to bring them into disrepute.
From the whole thread created about this incident, one interesting item stands out:
This user, is a spy. Nothing more than a nark for Rudolph. I had my suspicions for a while now, but its now all falling into place, the pieces of the puzzle, that is.
So therefore, the whole purpose of Mybroadband is actually moot- the forum ought to be shut down and the site should run as an entity that just spins clickbait like a few other sites do.
