What Happened?

Somebobody please fill me in........ I've read all sorts of things as to this meltdown. Good, Bad, and indifferent. But the worst part is mostly bad. Other watch forums are out there celebrating and bragging about the down time and the lack of info that we as WatchGeeks could not get at. So someone out there, Meijin, Please fill me and the others in. We deserve an explanation as to what has and is happening............ __________________

The site was hacked the day I left on my vacation to Las Vegas. There was nothing that I could do until I returned home since I took no computer with me. It is now back up and running.


The WatchLards and their ilk are morons who have nothing better to do other than talk smack about that which they don't know and can't understand. Also moving this to an appropriate forum. ps - Those with Facebook knew what was going on Thursday. __________________ Michael

Not to crazy about FaceBook. They ask too many questions and the vulnerability of you and your info has little to no control. So if I get lost, I know how to read a map and a compass. I will find my way eventually. Thanks for the offer though........ __________________

Watch Lords?? I would never give any credence to those fellows, because their only reason to exist is to bash this site. Without that central theme, there is no other content! If the folks had a positive reason to


exist, perhaps it might be worth some of our time...... JMHO __________________

As their ads used to say, they "take a licking and keep on ticking" and, which wasn't part of the ads, they don't cost you an arm and a leg. They're perfectly functional, not overly expensive time keeping devices.

Rich, I agree with you. That site is full of hate and anger. I really don't see it though. This is a hobby, not a way of life or a means of survival. These people seem to spend all their time towards a (negative) watch forum and seem to have forgotten about life altogether. Their primary goal being bashing and denegrading anyone and everyone associated with WatchGeeks.Net. Until this happened, I never heard of Watchlords...... It makes me wonder what else do they have or consider important to their way of life. Don't get me wrong, I love my watch collection, but if it has to, it can be replaced. I'm glad WatchGeeks is back up and the REAL WATCH FORUM is ALIVE and well......... __________________

I have to admit I never heard of or visited Watch Lords until this week when Geeks went down....All I'll say is this : After only 1 day of searching that site I deleted it from my Favs list. They were the most unprofessional, vulgar bunch of haters I have ever been witness to. Wow ... really really bad. Glad Geeks is up again __________________

As you know i am new to the watch game. Even though i have been collecting for a while now i have always felt that it was about passion for all watches!. And to be a tru geek is to have passion and a sense of style for life. I observed watchlords because our site was down and i of course was going threw withdrals lol, lets just say there exactly where they should be!, growing up is hard to do lol. Peace out!

First off I would like to thank Mike Davis for getting the forum back online...Second, Given the motivation of the person or persons in question that hacked this site, I would hope that the mods that helped to restore watchgeeks back to its former glory have taken into consideration that the ones who perpetrated this act will likely do it again and again....So I hope that proper security measures were taken to insure that this incident doesn't happen again...I also hope that Mike D and the owners of this forum will take find those responsible for the 'hacking' breach of security and contact their respective ISP's..I'm sure this little stunt is not in keeping with the hacker's ISP TOS... Thanks again to Mike D., the Mods and to IWG for restoring the site.. Jon

I did break down and check out facebook to get some updates, and there are some good people there, some that would fit in here very well, I think. I personally still don't get the facebook craze though. It might be good on a personal level, if you have a manageable number of friends on your wall, but 8000 people posting and no way to organize it? Not for me, thanks for getting watchgeeks back up! __________________ no comment.....

Man I am glad this site is back up and running. I thought maybe the Mayans were wrong with their calendar.

It's nice to see we didn't disappoint the Lords of Flatbush. They said we would be posting how glad we were that WGs was back up. What they don't understand is that we are also glad that we don't have to read any more of their feces. I could only stand about 2 min. of it and had to go take a shower. That place is like pergatory for banned ex geeks who couldn't live with the TOS over here.

Many, many thanx, Michael for getting us back on line. It was a rough few days. I do hope that some sort of legal action can be taken to prevent this sort of thing from happening again. Some folks really need to be shown the error of their ways.

Glad to see the site back up and running again. Fortunately looked at other sites during the absence and just ensured the fact that this one is the best! There are some really senseless sites out there!!!! __________________

Don't do Facebook either. Can't believe the hate that people spew on other websites. Glad we're back Mike, the cream always rises to the top!

I must say as a person who does not use fasebook or anything of the like I really could not find any information about what was going on. I felt so left out in the dark and wondered if something I had posted got me banned. I could think of nothing I could have done. Well while trying to find some info I was directed to the other watch forum. This gave me such a laugh. I have never read so many hatefull posts. You would think from their ranting


that Watchgeeks is the biggest threat to America. I showed some of the posts to my wife and we had some good laughs. WOW - Watchgeeks has really got under thier skirts for some reason. Makes me all the more pround to belong to Watchgeek power. We are such bad bad persons collecting watches over here. __________________

Glad you're back Michael!!! and Thanks for getting this site back up and running, I think we all missed it. To briefly address the "hacking" issue, I assume WG administration or whoever can prove who did the hacking? Otherwise, as an attorney, I would advise everybody here to refrain from accusing people of committing federal offenses without proof. Liable and Slander suits come immediately to mind. Just my unsolicited 2 cents worth. as you were........... __________________ RANGERDAVID Loving life in the Mountains of North Carolina
