    Maketoast is no longer with WS

    Maketoast is no longer a moderator at WS.

    If you are not familiar with Maketoast let me give you a brief background.

    Maketoast use to have a site containing many JonBenet Ramsey pictures and such. "Maketoast" was a teenager when he started out.

    Supposedly someone else purchased the Maketoast site at the end of last year and started using the name Maketoast on the forums. All the while claiming to be a different "Maketoast."

    Maketoast e-mailed me and told me his "real" first name and his "real" job. Said he had been around on the boards for a long time and when the Maketoast name and site went up for sale he grabbed it.

    I was skeptical. It's really too long of a story to go into all the details but let's just say I found it hard to believe that someone out of the blue would buy up the Maketoast name and jump into the forums at this late date in the JBR case.

    I took over ownership of Websleuths almost 3 weeks ago. Maketoast was a moderator on the JBR site. River, the former owner, told me Maketoast was a good moderator so I let it go.

    I then received two bizarre emails from a Richard Gesler or Gusler. Depending on how he wanted to spell his name that day.

    Below is one of the emails.
    `````````````````````````````````````````````````` ```````````````````````````````
    Patricia. Hi. I am speaking for a large group of posters on the Websleuths
    forum community who do not agree with you being the owner of the site. This is not about you personally, but is for the good of the forum. Websleuths has been my life for years now and I would hate to see the values that myself among others have for Websleuths become something of the past. That is why members have started or are starting a site with a petition for Ownership of Websleuths to be turned over to someone else. I will forward you the Web Address as soon as we are up. Patricia, don't take this the wrong way because it is not directed at you as a person, it's just we believe that the future of this site is on the line, and we all would like it to survive. Please give this some thought. How many people must we have sign before something can be worked out?
    Reguards,
    Richard
    `````````````````````````````````````````````````` ```````````````````````````````````````
    Then I received another one stating that the petition was going up on April 10th and he would send me the link. He never did.

    I have traced the IP of this email back to a library in a very small town. This same IP matched one that Maketoast used on Websleuths. It is a definite match. There is no question. Maketoast is the person who wrote this email.

    I have been e-mailing Maketoast since Saturday with no response. To me that speaks volumes.

    One other thing. I was able to trace other IP's that Maketoast had used on WS. Several of them went back to a suburb of Atlanta.

    I really don't think anyone jumps into the JBR case this strong. This late in the game.

    By the way the Maketoast site is very pro Ramsey.

    I am not sure what Maketoast thought he would accomplish. Perhaps he was looking to take over WS and I put a wrench in the deal. I don't know.

    I am going to be talking with people over the next few days about being the new moderator of the JBR forum.

    I appreciate your patience and support in this matter.

    Tricia,
    What a wild story! So it appears this person was really Pro-Ramsey and not the Make-Toast you thought he was? Good grief.

    Tylin there is more to it. It's just too long to post it.

    I want to stress I enjoy all opinions. Pro Ramsey/Anti Ramsey/Fence sitters.

    I want all opinions on the forum as long as they post nicely to each other.

    It was Maketoast's Atlanta IP's that bothered me.

    All the other IP's came from a town many hundreds of miles away from Atlanta. Including the library where he sent the petition email from.

    Tricia,
    I love the JBR forum here and I read it often. It surprises me what some people will do. The letter to you was ugly to say the least IMO. You had a good eye! I'm sure Atlanta probably sent off red flags to you. (I believe that's where J****** lives. phew.

    Talking

    This might be the work of our mysterious letter writer known as Patricia.

    A quote from Misty's website:

    "However, ******* states in a post from June 26, 2000"

    "... I think access to multiple computers and a very strong knowledge of telecommunications might have been a benefit to Patricia."

    What if *******'s husband took ownership of Maketoast?

    I think she lives in Hickory, NC and has since before the case started.

    Nehemiah, you think Patsy's pitbull, that old trickster and impersonator Susan Stine, might have been our moderator? The very thought of it creeps me out.

    imo

    Me too. SS the Nazi. Susan Stein. Scary woman.

    I have no idea. I think it might actually have been several people.

    I just don't know.

    That trickster

    Yep, Ivy...when Tricia said "Atlanta" that's exactly who I thought. She's such a sly one! Seems impersonation is her forte. And to think I had opportunity to converse with her and missed it....

    Tricia, can you say what state in which that small town is located?

    IMO

    Edited to add another thought.

    Someone hijacked the very first domain I registered in 1997. Maketoast.com. I had planned on owning that domain until I die, but someone stole it. Boy am I pissed off. Grrr.. Here is the new owner, send her/him some hate mail, the dirty whore/bastard.

    The Director (robin@mutilatednews.com)
    64212353842
    PO Box 14232

    Dammit. Dammit dammit. I know I renewed the domain name. I know I did. It's on my credit card statement. Argh... Not much I can do about it though.
