    Exclamation The High Road

    Oleg Volk had an interesting post on his LJ today:
    olegvolk: Going to court.

    Going to court.
    In December 2002, I founded The High Road forum dedicated to the advancement of responsible gun ownership. Recently, it was discovered that in 2006, the volunteer forum systems administrator, Derek Zeanah of Statesboro, Georgia, changed domain registration to himself. After he was confronted, Derek locked out all other staff from accessing the Web server administration and would not share even backup copies of its content. After failed attempts to peacefully resolve the dispute, it has become necessary for me to initiate a lawsuit against Derek Zeanah for the return of domain name and the forum database.

    I am seeking and would greatly appreciate donations to help with the cost of litigation. You can use Paypal ([email protected]) or send a check to:
    Oleg Volk 3112 Chambley Ct Hermitage, TN 37076

    All donations shall be returned if the lawsuit is ultimately avoided. You can also aid me by re-posting this appeal on your blog, forum or web site. My legal position is already endorsed by almost all of The High Road staff as well as Rich Lucibella, the founder of The Firing Line forum.

    UPDATE: Derek's reaction was to disable The High Road forum all together. He also removed most of the staff who opposed him.

    Several gun boards have active discussions on this and the consensus among posters appears to be that Oleg didn't pay enough attention and Derek is a thief. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Should THR close down, Oleg could probably start a new board with a very large instant membership. Unfortunately, to lose 6 years worth of informative posts because he doesn't have THR backups would be a shame.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam
