Following on from some very insightful comments from one of our valued contributors, this post is dedicated to those people who put their own lives on hold and set their personal problems to one side to work alongside the owners of Legal Beagles and make it the consumer forum it is today.
On a previous post (no credit where credit is due), we have shown how Celestine’s idea of giving credit to all those who made Legal Beagles the ultimate consumer resource and a weapon to fight against people like Carl Wright, was a one liner saying: “Well done to everyone who worked on this“. Thankfully, we have amongst us someone who was able to name some of those who “worked on that”, and we know both joined the Ban Club when they were removed from Legal Beagles without a reason, two years ago. You will find the full comment quoted below.
A picture is beginning to emerge and we’ve got four unsung heroes here so far, I’m sure many more will surface.
Now we now who they are, they are no longer unsung! We can sing their praises and say “Thank you” properly.
The story as I understand it is that Sapphire became aware of an ‘anomaly’ in the admin permissions and asked CurlyBen to assist her in investigating it. This must have ‘touched a nerve’ with the owners, as Sapph & CB were both treated like creeps for taking the trouble to investigate something that was creepy in itself. The subsequent demotion of Sapphire for her vigilance in the absence of any from the site owners was bad enough IMO – but then banning her for this was for me confirmation that the real creeps were the owners who thought they had covered their slimy trails.
They knew that Sapph was no expert at working the Admin panel, but they forgot that she still had a brain – and although she knew she shouldn’t throw any switches herself, she “Knew a man who can.” So she called him, and it appeared that a basic-level LB member had managed to access admin permissions. This was a dangerous security breach, and she did what was necessary and got that access revoked until the absent owners returned from their junkets and attended the ‘scene of the crime.’ Lo and behold – the ‘criminals’ were the owners themselves – who had been found out by Sapphire’s devoted vigilance. So – they found out the hard way that she was better at her job than they thought – and of course, the real creeps got rid of her for exactly that reason. I believe CB then left in protest at this, as he also has decent principles.
Tuttsi was indeed very much involved in chasing the DCA’s and she put in personal attendance at meetings with the MoJ, as I understand – as well as all the time and effort in researching, etc. While the others were ‘sacrificing’ their precious time in between junkets to visit the MoJ, Tuttsi was genuinely sacrificing her time in between hospital stays while she battled with Cancer. YES – I SAID CANCER. Not baby-making or celeb-worshipping. Not bike-riding or safariing. She also got banned without notice, and no reason given.
Oh – Did I forget to mention it in all my frothing ? Sapphire was also battling Cancer while she was running the LB forum for them. YES – I SAID CANCER AGAIN. And these cretins couldn’t even manage to dismiss ther or Tuttsi honourably with a few crummy words of thanks after all their efforts.
The pure hypocrisy of Cel’s post claiming victory over Carl Wright seems so obvious to me in the shadow of her dealings with Sapphire and Tuttsi. Cel is clearly as heartless as Carl is – as are the rest of the LB ownership.Bill-K
