Today Asto at ForumKorner (somewhere we advertise lewd.sx) has scammed out and said his goodbye.

Before I depart, I have few words.

I'd like to acknowledge that I have taken virtual property from two users and have no intention of returning them. Fraud, scamming, going out with a bang, whatever you wish to call it. I'm not hiding that fact.

This forum has gone downhill with bad decision making and pure neglect. Being promoted to moderator was a friendly gesture but also a useless one. I had no ability to moderate any posts outside of the (dead) graphics section, and could only ban multi accounters and ban evaders when they were sought after. Had I been given the correct permissions I would have probably taken my position more seriously, however my requests to Philly fell on deaf ears. Similarly with award distribution. I felt the pain of having awards missing and wanted to be able to grant them to the 20+ users missing their awards. Believe me, I wanted to make a difference and actually get shit done, but as always, there was the concrete wall known as Philly in the way. Then came the discount threads. Yet another poor decision to sell out 'legitimately'. I'm sorry fellas, but I just don't like it here these days. 

@Philly, you aren't fit to own/run a forum, period. We all know this. Sell it off to someone who truly works hard and listens to their community. Someone who is active and doesn't come online to post a discount thread every fortnight. @Hobbs in my opinion would be a great candidate to take over. I do respect you as a person, but not as an admin of ForumKorner. 

@fear, 90% of this forum has high respect for you and what you do here. You do your job well and you deserve to be promoted to staff.

@sector is bae #FreeNevermind2015 

@felon for being so generous to the community and still copping a knife in the back.

@beware you are a cool guy.

@homie @fade you guys are neat.

@trilogy @meow░w░w▒w▒w▓w▓ @kyle "zeus" I respect your appreciation for fashion.

@Glitch @verdict @raptor @chill @michael the brothers from across the Tasman.

@jason ur funny haha

@yeti you showed me the ropes.

@Mac letting that $20 slide.

@envy you could flame the shit out of this guy and he'd have a come back for everything.

@hobbs you're a nice guy, honest and humble but not a bitch. Keep on keeping on.

@cred @piece I'm sorry it had to be you, really. There won't be anything else I can say to make it any less of a loss.

Let this be a lesson for everyone. No matter what their userbar says, no matter how many green numbers they have, don't trust anyone.

I think that it's absolutely retarded that the people in his "goodbye" thread are basically supporting him and shit. Two people got scammed out of CS:GO knives..



What do you think of someone scamming out when they feel they are done? 
I think it's wrong, and a terrible idea. I have no respect for someone like this at all.

Is this ok to post or not dad?

i'd never scam a soul, and i don't go first on deals online bc i dislike scamming in general

I can probably figure out who you are just from the mentions, heh.

But yeah, I pretty much agree with you.

I also find it pretty despicable that, as a trusted name and staff, to tear down that built up trust maintained for so many years - not just as a moderator, but as a person as well. I'm not attached to FK in any way, but I really hope from one forum staff to another that the faith the userbase has in the rest of the staff doesn't waver.

People that scam are literally scum, despicable people. I do agree that FK is quickly going downhill though, I've offered to help Philly but haven't gotten much of a response.

Nobody likes scammers except themselves, period. To rip money out of people and not give them what they asked for is just being a selfish idiot.

Scamming is pretty much non-violent, up front theft.

What an asshole. Going out with a bang like that is just all around shitty.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

Scamming is pretty shitty, even to make a point. I understand getting some support, because his point isn't bad, but he still did a shitty thing.

>Fraud, scamming
damn right, at least he knows how despicable he is.

>going out with a bang

errr... nope? That's leaving like any cowardly asshole would.

>Had I been given the correct permissions I would have probably taken my position more seriously

That's just ranting about lack of power despite being one step higher than any ordinary member.

>Let this be a lesson for everyone. No matter what their userbar says, no matter how many green numbers they have, don't trust anyone.

A valid point, but also a cheap and pointless self-justification - not to mention needlessly generalizing the issue. The scammers are rare individuals, and finding one among the staff is a rare occurence. Putting aside the issue that everyone can potentially scam another person, as all it takes is the will to do so and twisted enough conscious, staff are meant to be trustworthy - and he's just shamelessly giving a bad name to this position like it's no big deal.
