To clarify the article says he killed his boss and then fled to Canada where another RogueSci member met up with him. Its still pretty fucked up eitherway. Second NO ONE has heard from Mega since the site shut down? That's odd if it was shut down due to lack of payment to servers you would think someone somewhere would post this information. But since this info is nowhere to be found i think its safe to assume some government agency is behind its sudden removal. You would think the Admins would warn the members of whats coming, have a fund raiser or something. That's just my opinion
This seems true. I was clued into the Sacramento Bee
article when I was on Phrixus Science. The R/S member NBK2000 stayed with in Canada was only 17 (NBK was--36--??), and his parents got suspicious, and called the Dudley DoRights. He was extradited back to Sacto.EDIT: I recall the guys on Phrixus were pretty open about NBK and clearing a the air about Megalomania and R.S.'s demise. I argued Megalo could Not have been a "PhD Chemist" as he described himself; a good chemist would have a good job and wouldn't have time to run a forum as tightly as he did. (His avator was "Zondak"--??--I think; an interstellar criminal from the '60's cartoon "Space Ghost" that looked like a huge preying mantis.) Turns out, I was right. He just gave himself the "title", as it was His forum. , He is just a bright boy; a scientist wabnnabe. He seems to have plenty of time to cross-index, what, 2,000 exp. formulas, and flesh out the new E &W as he has (see next post.)
We used to get the "Bee" on sundays when I lived in Napa--this is getting close to home--!!
You've got to watch who you deal with on the web. There are a lot with social problems, that's why they are here (Present company Excluded!
) But, I've met petty, childish, argumentative types on Rogue, etc. (I only say "accusation" because I know firsthand how important it is e to be considered innocent until proven guilty. )Possibly, NBK will be acquitted, who knows..http://www.roguesci.org/
What a Crock! This is Nothing like the old R/S--E & W board. No forum. Plus, a complete glossing-over/denial of the "hiatus" and Why.
Oh, Well, it was a bunch of argumentative , petty types that went to PhrixusScience (now down) or ShadowRX (another clique). Not exactly stranger-friendly.
