The Truth


The truth must be heard about the beloved "Chicken". I e-mailed him asking a simple question and look at the response I received:

I have nothing else to say to you. I'll let Matt decide if he wants to
pursue legal action against you. Please direct all further correspondence
to him.

Legal action against me for what? Asking a question? "Chicken" is beginning to sound like a True Hosting wanna-be.


Not very professional or nice. I think Chicken's position on WebHostingTalk should be strongly reconsidered.

If you would like me to forward the e-mail to you, please e-mail michaelbenett@hotmail.com.

Thank you for your time,
Vince

Sorry Eric,
I guess that was a little biased of me.

I was asking Chicken why my IP was banned (I didn't know what I did). Then he replied with those responses.

I am expecting Chicken to delete this thread.

I'm sorry, but I don't think anything justfies e-mailing a person who just asked a simple question, basically cussing them out, and then proceed to tell them that they are going to "take legal action" against you.

I also expected everyone on this board to jump to conclusions and say that I am wrong.

why wouldnt we think you are in the wrong.
The only way i can see otherwise, is that its a case of mistaken identity.
Which you claim it is?

He's been on the boards for over 2years now (ithink), never any problems, why would it start, all of a sudden, with you?

At Least you were Expecting it Though

But it'd still be nice to hear from Chicken, when he gets around, i dont see why this would get deleted.

but it SHOULD be in the Lounge, i Say.

Forward it to me, so I can make sure nothing was "Forged headers", as well as what you sent him. Thanks!

You do not believe me even if I have proof? It is so sad how everyone jumps to conclusions on this board. Please e-mail michaelbenett@hotmail.com if you would like me to forward these e-mails.

No. Really, vincem, You can't just come and say that. There's probably a good reason you don't tell us why your IP was banned. In which case you really 'are' a . . . . . . .

There you guys go again, jumping to conclusions. I do not know why my IP was banned... only Chicken can supply that answer. Even if I did something horribly wrong it does not justify cussing me out and threatening to sue me.

listen

its either a case of mistaken identity.

Or you did something wrong.

Its that simple.
It was either a mistake, or you deserved it.

Win-Win for Chicken.
Right?

Even if I did something wrong does it really justify the fact that Chicken offended me by cussing me out?

And if it is mistaken identity... Would you like it if you were arrested and put in jail for several years for something you didn't do?

Let me Answer those Questions.

1. Did he have the Right to Cuss you out.

Not Necessarily, but i dont know what you did.
If you did something very bad, like tried to hack the server, or something evil of the kind, then i'd tell you where to go too.
(I think most of us would)


2. If its a mistaken identity, then Chicken will apologize to you, im sure.
But whoever those comments were meant for, were definitely well deserved if they came from the Chicken himself..

He's not a mean SOB.
So its not his type.
