When I created the account, I did not save the terms&conditions, and that's over a decade ago. I do know that I had to re-register at some point, but at that time, I had met Wayne in person and didn't even read the terms that might have changed. I never would have thought that he'd be taking advantage of the community like that.

Another point that made me angry was that Wayne's debt was primarily caused by someone we all know too well, and some of you might know that I don't like these people too much either.
Now, that the site is under new ownership, maybe your request for removal of your old post will be honored. It doesn't hurt to ask.

I could easily get banned on since the terms of use I accepted were in "Deutsch" and I never bothered to translate them!
