Time to dedicate more energy to the blog

My Resignation

With regrets, I hereby announce my resignation as an administrator and as the Webmaster for both Legions of the Abyss and Lords of Classic Rock. The narrow scope of both ideas and music held by the other administrators, as well as the fact that my voice has little to no influence as to the future of the web site, I feel I must step down.

The only other administrator of Legions of the Abyss that shared my views and opinions was released and banned from the site against my wishes. I mean no disrespect to the other administrators of the site, but feel I must step aside to maintain my self respect.

I will turn over all of my hard work, including the layouts and content of both web sites, to the respective owners of those sites. It has been a pleasure being part of both forums and I have met many great people, but I feel it is necessary to take this action. I wish nothing but the best for both sites, and I hope eventually the other administrators can view music, especially metal, in a much broader spectrum.


We have been able to reach an agreement, and all four original members of LOTA and LOCR have been reinstated. I look forward to working with the team, and I will also try to devote more time to this blog as well as Lefty's Blog.

Despite being harshly banished from the forum, I also wish everyone there the best. The situation could've been handled better, but it is best not to hold grudges. Now that we have parted ways, both sides can be comfortable. I thank both Goremaster and Metallord for giving me the chance to administrate the forum. Good luck to you guys.

BND, Ken Hawk, and Blacklabelaxe, cheers for a new beginning!

There was no legitimate reason to even attempt to justify the treatment that Lefty received. I will go on the record to say that I would never treat Lefty or anyone I considered a friend in that manner.

I am also certain that bridges can be rebuilt, but until that occurs, the BND Blog and the Metal Pundit will be my homes on the Internet.

Lefty Metalhead said...

You are a good man BND. I know you would never treat anyone like that. Thanks for the support! I decided to let the by-gones be by-gones.

I'm also certain bridges can be rebuilt. BND and Metal Pundit are our homes indeed!

I also want to go on the record as saying that I have had an extended discussion with one of the admins at Legions of the Abyss, and I feel that he understands and respects my decision. I am not opposed to returning to either site, but many things would need to change before I would even consider it. First and foremost, they would have to right things with my brother Lefty.

It is a shame that all the hours I've spent creating those web pages now seems wasted, but neither site is worth my dignity.

Lefty Metalhead said...

I don't know if one of those administrators is willing to relent and right things with me. I think anything is possible. However, I think it is very unlikely that I will return to the forum. But I will not say never. Like you said BND, I have my dignity.

Goremaster said...

I am happy to announce that BND has to decided to join us again and is an Admin. I have un-banned Lefty. We have worked some things out and Lefty, you are welcomed to be on the staff again.

Lefty Metalhead said...

Thanks Goremaster!

Lefty Metalhead said...

Everything is back to normal! Thank goodness.

BlackLabelAxe said...

Yeah, I think Blabbermouth is the proper place for drama.

You guys are all far too cool for that.

However, I will surely enjoy more blogging from BND and Lefty! Hell, we've only got like 600 more days until the election- we need to get on it!
