Ok so the Mods on DS are dropping fast… what is up? Anyone have the goods? msmamabear is no longer a mod; tararaboomdea, todzwife, Shawnah and manna00 are all gone too.

I was thinking it might be the whole POC and Racism on DS thing… Tara was gone right then, but I am not sure about the others.

    Maybe they were looking at a loss of benefits?

  2. IAmWhoIAm says:

    like what TBB – a friggin chocolate computer?!?

  3. The Bored Bitch says:

    Id take a chocolate computer.

    Hell, Ill take two if you are offering.

  4. Christine says:

    I can see why Tara is no longer a mod. She was way too sarcastic to be a mod. I can think of at least one thread where she stirred things up, even though she was a mod. The others I am surprised about. I didn’t notice that Mamabear and Manna00 are no longer mods. They seemed great.

  5. spoon says:

    I know exactly why msmamabear dissapeared. It may not be the stated facts, and I’m sure it won’t be the popular opinion. But I know that she has been standing firm with her conservative opinions, the admins didn’t like that, they waited until things died down, then booted her off with excuses that were completely invalid, ridiculous, and untrue. I think it’s pretty clear if you are paying attention on ds what happened.

  6. Christine says:

    Spoon, her conservative opinions how? Now I am curious.

  7. The Bored Bitch says:

    As long as they dont boot Sally, there is hope.

  8. The Bored Bitch says:

    Shit. I shouldnt have said that.

    The mods I like are generally fired.

  9. bystander says:

    msmamabear here

    i was removed for being inactive supposedly. i know this is a load of bs due to the fact i was more active then most. in fact i was told to not work as much because i was stepping on toes. however, after processing things for 24 hours and not getting any answers from anyone, i realized i don’t need the crap anymore.

    and as for sally, well, she should really read the rules more.

  10. bystander says:

    oh and todzwife was removed yesterday as well.

  11. spoon says:

    there was a recent issue that she felt was morally wrong (and it involved an admin, but only by association) happening on ds so she stood up for what she believed in, afformentioned admin (who was quite popular among the admins) dissapeared (I’m assuming by force), and I think the rest of the admins have been out to get her ever since. Of course this is only what I conjecture and put together on my own because it’s obvious that the reasons that they gave her were ridiculous/untrue.

  12. The Bored Bitch says:

    So basically you were told to hurry up and do nothing?

  13. icantwin says:

    Tara didn’t get booted, she stepped down. Sorry to burst your bubble.

  14. DSDM2 says:

    Spoon, use names, I’m not following.

  15. bystander says:

    shawnah and tara stepped down they were not removed.

    there have been numerous occasions that there was error in the admin staff and so i went to the owners of the site to rectify the matter. therefore stepping on toes. its really sad. it got to the point where everything i said, didn’t say, did and didn’t do were being questioned. i don’t need that.

  16. spoon says:

    yah I wasn’t talking about tara

  17. Sarah says:

    I think spoon is saying that it’s about the Mindi and Zayvirsdaddy relationship…correct me if I’m wrong spoon.

  18. DSDM2 says:

    we love drama… details are great if you want to give them 😀 The innerworkings of DS… interesting…

  19. The Bored Bitch says:

    Cliff notes with names and UNs would be great.

    If you could high light the particularly salacious mod drama’s, that would be spectacular.

  20. icantwin says:

    What the hell are UNs?

  21. Sarah says:

    UNs=usernames 😀

  22. Madre says:

    united nations duh…

  23. bystander says:

    hmmm, i keep thinking about it, but at this time, i will not go into much detail. i know they are waiting for my outrageous outburst and i don’t want to give them the satisfaction. when they find some minor thing i did wrong they ban me and then I will tell all.

  24. icantwin says:

    United Nations. Clever. Was that supposed to be a joke?

  25. bystander says:

    un could also be user notes, a tool mods and admins use to keep track of users warnings and strikes.

    but i will add some meat to the pot. my dearest friend manna00 has been a mod as long as was, was not promoted to senior with the rest of her class :(. I spoke up, loudly about it about 3 weeks ago. I even mentioned that it doesn’t look good for Lee because Manna is a LDS. And here we are, both demoted. Now I am not saying anything, but its not hard to put 2 and 2 together…

  26. DSDM2 says:

    ByStander, I feel like I am waiting for the same thing to happen! LOL. I half expect to see banned when I log in every morning.

    Well, just dish or email us when you are ready… if anyone wants to email us so we can post it w.o outting you, dsdramamama2@hotmail.com 😀

  27. DSDM2 says:

    HMMM… Lee is a bigot? Big surprise. LDS, Lesbian, Gay, Trans, Black, Mexican… seems as if he hates them all.

    For those that are unfamiliar, search LDS here on the blog. And google Lee Dodd and LDS

  28. becka says:

    maybe let her ‘hide’ her name without calling out, just to tell all, LOL!

  29. Mamatutu says:

    Yeah I noticed that too about Manna00

  30. Mamatutu says:

    Oh and no bubbles burst about Tara, I am pretty sure that if she hadn’t step down she may have been forced to 😉

  31. Madre says:

    icantwin yes it was a joke. is that ok or was it too much for you?

  32. bystander says:

    Tara was doing her job and doing it well, so I don’t think she would have been asked to step down. But then I was doing my job as was Manna and we are both gone, so who knows. Apparently, DS is all about keeping people in their place, if you step outside the line you are removed. plain and simple.

  33. just me says:

    They definitely won’t boot Sally. She’s like Switzerland and I mean that in a good way.
    TBH I noticed a few threads that msmamabear responded to and I couldn’t help thinking “When did she get so bitchy?”

  34. just me says:

    Oh and Tara was not booted. She stepped down according to her and another mod.

  35. just me says:

    Wait wth is this shit about Sally about???

  36. Stephanie says:

    I’m bummed about this. Tara was SO helpful (along with cowmommy) during the whole jonasmommy debacle. They were both nice and handled things professionally. I’m really disappointed that Tara is gone as a mod. 😦

  37. you'llneverknow says:

    wow. i never really paid much attention to who was a mod and who wasn’t. but this is interesting…

  38. subpariq says:

    I do think it is interesting that lee only seems to choose diehard christian conservatives as mods. I would be really surprised if msmamabear lost standing because of her conservative values since that seems to be the only acceptable way to be there. I don’t think the mamabear situation has anything to do with the bigotry. In fact I think that mama bear said she didn’t want a poc forum. she also cried foul that anyone would dare have the nerve to speak up since christians are so persecuted in another thread (dramatizing a bit for affect). I heard that she also did some kind of crappy stuff with warnings on one of the recent threads.
    It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if she was upset over the relationship between mindy and zavyirsdaddy. She seems to fit the bill for…well you know. Clearly ds is not a place where diversity is embraced, encouraged, promoted or even ACCEPTED. The shit starts with the owners and rolls downhill.
    On a side note, does zavyirs daddy really annoy anyone else? I think he is pretty fucking rude to people. And I am kind of confused about his child zavyir and his absence from his siggy. Since he and mindy got together it seems like he is only about her kids. I know I shouldn’t make assumptions but I can’t help it.

  39. The Bored Bitch says:

    Boooorrriiinggggg.

    Need. More. Gory. Details.

    Over and out.

  40. my2sons says:

    I have to say, I’m not surprised about Manna. I saw that coming months ago. I was actually seriously surprised that she wasn’t booted long before.

    It’s a damn shame and it’s also sickening, really.

  41. Christine says:

    I never even noticed that Mindi is now longer a mod. I haven’t seen her posting in such a long time that I didn’t notice. Did she get demoted after she started her relationship with Zavyirsdaddy? I remember her signature saying that she was taking a break from DS for a while, is that when it happened?

  42. icantwin says:

    #38: “And I am kind of confused about his child zavyir and his absence from his siggy. Since he and mindy got together it seems like he is only about her kids. I know I shouldn’t make assumptions but I can’t help it.”

    I noticed that the other day in his siggy. No mention of zaviar anymore. 😦

  43. MajKitab says:

    What’s the problem with them having a relationship?

  44. veganthug says:

    Wow.

    (formerly riot)

  45. bystander says:

    For the record, I was for a diversity forum, but was supporting the admins ruling on that. I personally think, that a board that size with that many forums can justify it. I also made a recommendation to close/merge some of the lesser used forums if they were firm in the decision not to open it. This went unacknowledged.

  46. just me says:

    Still waiting to know whats up with the comment from msmamabear about sally? You really shouldn’t say shit if you are’t prepared to explain what the hell you mean.

  47. subpariq says:

    msmamabear, you said in one post that you didn’t think there should be a diversity forum. You said it was your own personal opinion.
    Does admin make mods make certain statements? Not being a bitch. Really just wondering. Also what is in it for the mod? In other words why put up with all the bs and unfairness if there is nothing in it for you?
    Wondering if admin actively reads this site and if they are trying to figure out who is who and if there is any speculation about the blog owner. Do you think she would be banned if they figured her out?
    Is there a blacksheep list? Meaning are they gunning for certain people? I recently heard about a couple of strikes that were issued that seem like a load of crap.
    Has lee made any sort of statement about his bigotry?

  48. my2sons says:

    Could someone fill me in on what’s up with Mindi and Zavyirsdaddy? Please! I’m really kind of confused about it. If it’s not my business just tell me. LOL!!!

  49. subpariq says:

    They are in a relationship. It appears from mindi’s sig that they are ttc their fifth baby which is weird because not too long ago she was posting that they were barely able to making ends meet. Trying not to judge. But sometimes it is hard. I can’t remember if nick moved or not. But either way he is not talking about his son anymore at all.

  50. DSDM2 says:

    ;headscratch:

    “Still waiting to know whats up with the comment from msmamabear about sally? You really shouldn’t say shit if you are’t prepared to explain what the hell you mean.”

    What comment number?

  51. MajKitab says:

    “and as for sally, well, she should really read the rules more.”

    #9

  52. Danuv says:

    From what I can tell Zavyirsdaddy is a trans male, he was born female and is living as male. He and Mindi were both in rocky relationships when they got together or they had just ended them.

  53. Mamatutu says:

    Post number 9 DSDM2

  54. my2sons says:

    Thanks! I didn’t even know they know each other. I’m really observant, I guess. Anyway, thanks!!!

  55. DSDM2 says:

    LOL thanks! I missed that!

  56. justice says:

    Ha!
    Seems like the bad apples are getting plucked.
    To each what they deserve!

    “just me Says: July 9, 2008 at 4:55 pm

    Still waiting to know whats up with the comment from msmamabear about sally? You really shouldn’t say shit if you are’t prepared to explain what the hell you mean.”

    “and as for sally, well, she should really read the rules more.”

    That is what she (msmamabear) is saying. There have been multiple times that msmamabear has moved posts, and what not that needed to be moved, only for the other person to complain to Sally about it, and Sally reverses it, without asking any questions. Thats what she meant by not knowing the rules..

    As for DS Admins reading this blog, I know for a fact that Cowmommy (Crystal) does. I don’t know if they have suspicions or not on who the owner is, but I’m sure they do. And yes, if they found out who it was, they wouldn’t think twice about banning said member.. I can also tell you that there are certain members that are more heavily “watched” than others.

    I think the whole situation stinks. I am in agreement though that I believe they were targeted. I prolly cant go into detail about what I know still, cause she has stuff to sell still, but I do know about when this started, and what has led up to it. With everything I have read, it makes the rest of the admin staff look, well, not so good.. There was a lot of back pedaling, and there never was a real answer given as to why it happened, even though multiple times it was mentioned that they had “discussed it at length”..

  58. The Original Just Me says:

    Ds is such a bullshit site. I only go there for the drama lol!

  59. subpariq says:

    blsimpson can you confirm or deny that it has anything to do with the diversity forum? Maybe you know what mods get out of being a mod? Is there any sort of payment? A hearty handshake? A sticker at the end of the day? I don’t understand why anyone would do such a thankless job for a total assmunch without any sort of reward.

  60. Mamatutu says:

    There is not a God damn thing that the mods get for being a mod.

    Well if you have a business you get free advertising and site supporter.

    (i was a mod)

  61. blsimpson says:

    I canot confirm or deny that, Im sorry. All I can do is speculate, as can anyone else, even msmamabear herself, as no one is giving straight answers.

    As for what they get? Absolutely nothing. Every admin and mod on that board, save Lee and Juan, are volunteer. As for why they would take it? I dont know that either. Melissa took it cause she enjoyed doing it. She wanted to make DS great. Last week though, she knew that she was going to get demodded, and I kept telling her to step down on her own, and not give them the satisfaction of taking it from her..

  62. you'llneverknow says:

    so, how many mods are there? I got a PM a few weeks ago saying I was going to be banned if i didn’t fix my siggy. i had 5 lines instead of the 4 that are allowed. i thought sheesh…that was rude. i think half the mods on there are on a power trip and that is why they do it, for the recognition and power that comes with telling me poeple what to do.

  63. Christine says:

    This was posted as “How to Contact an Admin or Mod.” It’s a sticky on Ask the Pros. I guess it was the way to announce the new shortened list without any explanation.

    ~Administrators~
    Lee
    Juan
    Crystal/cowmommy
    Sally/Sweet_Fantasy_Fox
    Jen/Kylie&Logan’sMommy
    Sarah/WearingTaci

    ~Senior Moderators~
    Jessica/Proverbs169
    Ali/kissum
    Amanda/ocfb16
    Erika/beenwaitingalongtime

    ~Moderators~
    Heather/bodiejake
    Ginger/lovemygirls
    Andrea/Harmony96

  64. blsimpson says:

    There are not as many as there need to be for a board that size, I can tell you that. In my experience, there should be one mod per a couple forums.. There isnt on DS.

    As for the power trip, I’m sure thats true of some. I can tell you that wasnt true of Melissa.

  65. blsimpson says:

    And that list has been there a while. It was just recently updated..

  66. just me says:

    I do know that Sally doesn’t bend easily so don’t fault her for your own mistakes.

  67. blsimpson says:

    She might not, but that doesnt make her right either.. Many of those time Melissa was asked by another admin to move them, or delete them..

  68. veganthug says:

    Question..

    Why would a mama get a strike if someone else outted her? & she said nothing.. ?

    The mod who gave said strike really had her head up her ass & shes still a mod… go figure.

    DS sucks these days, I don’t buy nor sell there anymore. I would rather pay full price from a reputable sit then deal with all the scammers they let run wild.

    Seems like they’re more worried about the drama then the fact that good mamas are getting ripped off daily.

    Jerk wads.

  69. just me says:

    Doesn’t make you right either. I love the way you say something AFTER you got booted. Guess you are to two faced to say whats really on your mind eh Melissa?

  70. Christine says:

    blsimpson Says: July 9, 2008 at 7:52 pm
    “And that list has been there a while. It was just recently updated..”

    I think the other one was originally posted by Tararaboomdea, if I remember correctly. This is a whole new one posted by Kylieandlogansmommy.

    I guess it would look weird to have a sticky like that still there from someone who is no longer a mod.

  71. Mindi says:

    “Apparently, DS is all about keeping people in their place, if you step outside the line you are removed. plain and simple.”

    For once Melissa, you and I agree here.

  72. blsimpson says:

    “just me Says: July 9, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Doesn’t make you right either. I love the way you say something AFTER you got booted. Guess you are to two faced to say whats really on your mind eh Melissa?”

    First off, I’m not Melissa..

    Second, since she was still a mod at the time, she didnt want to jeopardize her position. Just like she wont do anything now to get her banned.

  73. blsimpson says:

    Oh, and she also did speak up about it early on, just to ones who needed to know.. Another reason I believe she was de-modded..

  74. Danuv says:

    Are they seriously banning people for things said off-site? Dang.

  75. icantwin says:

    blsimpson-It would probably be wise for you to shut up now. You’re going to get your wife banned. You know way too much about the behind the scenes happenings and that’s not going to bode well for Melissa seeing as you yourself, as a member, are not a Mod. So if you’re really concerned about protecting her and keeping her from being banned, I think you should just bow out now. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s very honorable of you to come to your wife’s defense and I believe what you’re both saying. But I would guess the Admins on DS do read this blog and you’re going to get her in trouble. Or at the very least, don’t share what private info you DO know on a public drama blog about DS. Just a thought…

  76. veganthug says:

    Yeah.. just message it to someone else & let THEM share it!

    [:

  77. subpariq says:

    hey icantwin! stop discouraging him from scooping.
    #68 I’m lost. Who got a strike for what?

  78. blsimpson says:

    Heheh. Ya, I guess I prolly should stop here. I would blow the whole thing open if it was my choice, but its not. 🙂

  79. liljoeysmom says:

    Details people! I need more details!

    Todzwife and Shawnah were very nice to me when I first started on DS. I hope they’ll be sticking around.

  80. subpariq says:

    This sucks balls. I want to know what is going on. Can’t someone email one of the dramamamas and have her post the information. There is no way they could ban anyone then? I don’t know about you guys but I smell something juicy and I want to know what it is. Pouts.

  81. crackin' up says:

    wow!!!! this is great fun to read!!!! too bad i have about 500 loads of laundry i need to do! but man, i had no idea this was going on! i mean, some of it, yeah. but i don’t usually find the “drama threads” until they get here and then they are deleted!

    MAN i want the whole scoop!!!! (said in a whiny voice….) hehe

  82. just me says:

    Someones getting banned:D

  83. subpariq says:

    #82 Who? And how do you know?
    Really there are much worse things in life than being banned from ds. In fact at the rate things are going it is kind of a badge of honor.

  84. The Bored Bitch says:

    Cliff notes for the ‘Gone all dayers’?

    Methinks it got juicy?!

  85. just me says:

    #83 I totally agree with. I’ve been tempted to just go off and get myself banned so I’ll do something more meaningful with my time other than listening to snotty ass bitches whine about their precious pretties getting mixed in with some not so pretties or watching in amazement as stupidity abounds.
    Oh and possibly Melissa and her dh. Other mods read this forum you know Ben and it was pretty damn stupid to admit you saw stuff on the forum when it is for mods eyes only.

  86. The Bored Bitch says:

    Okay, all caught up.

    #57- It doesnt come as a shock to me that certain people are heavily watched.
    Im one of them as are many, many others I know.

    #78- *fixes a beady eye on blsimpson*
    C’mon now. Thats just wrong.

    The suspense is going to kill me.

    #82- *shrug* someone is always getting banned over there. Half of BGs is banned.

  87. The Bored Bitch says:

    #85- The same mod eye only forums that have been used in the past to bash members privately?

  88. blsimpson says:

    #85 Really? you think that none of the other mods share things with other people? Everyone does. does it matter? Its a “public” board. I frankly could care less if I get banned.

    Oh, and if you were paying attention, you would see that I already knew “other mods” read this blog. Re-read post #57. Oh wait, Ill re-post the important part..

    “As for DS Admins reading this blog, I know for a fact that Cowmommy (Crystal) does.”

  89. bystander says:

    Well justme, it sounds like you know more then you should, so how are you finding out about it unless you are a member of the team? And you seem awful defensive of Sally…. :headscratch:

  90. just me says:

    Oh hell no. I get too involved in the DS drama and so far have been lucky I haven’t been banned yet.
    And I am defensive of Sally because yes I am friends with her. She been nothing but nice to me and is always very helpful to me and to other members.
    And the only reason I know more than I should is because I discuss this blog with people on instant messenger.
    Not that it matters but I figured she would be banned soon and so would her dh. Shes been rude on numerous occasions IN OPEN FORUM to other members.

  91. icantwin says:

    What is this internet world coming to? People bashing Sally? She’s about the nicest, genuine, neutral person I think I’ve ever seen online. Melissa and her hubby are really reaching for something is what it looks like to me.

  92. minimouth says:

    And so not the Christian way *tisk tisk*

  93. sbolen says:

    So if I say Lee’s an Asswipe on this site, I could get banned from DS? Blah, whatever. It wasn’t bad until they started deleting every fucking thread.

    Anywho, I think Sally is great. she’s been very kind to me. I don’t hang on DS much anymore, but she emailed me privately when my daughter got sick and was there for help.

  94. blsimpson says:

    #91 I think you should keep you mouth shut Tara. Yes, I know its you. And yes, I outed you. Sue me.

    Im not reaching for anything. I stated that these were what I believed happened from things that I saw going on.

    Oh and guess what, Todzwife, ya, she was LDS as well…

  95. icantwin says:

    Yes I’m Tara. I like to bash myself on the blog for fun. Makes a lot of sense! But whatever you say. 🙂

  96. just me says:

    91 thats what I am screaming. Sally is like Switzerland.

  97. maree9304 says:

    What exactly do admin do? hell, what do they all (senior mods, mods) do, exactly?

  98. minimouth says:

    Things you saw from the mod forum that’s just great.
    No icantwin is Bird we figured that out way back LMAO!

  99. The Bored Bitch says:

    Morning check for gory details.

  103. DSDM2 says:

    Ok just got an anonymous email about this. Here is what I was asked to say.

    “Melissa was let go from being a Mod because she has an attitude. Most of the other Mods and Admins made many complaints about her, as did several members. She was always very rude and condescending to the rest of the Mod/Admin team and was asked on several occasions to change her ways. Melissa’s life was that board. She would keep track of what other Mods/Admins were doing (or not doing) and would rub it in the faces of others how much work she did and how much work others didn’t do. That wasn’t her job. And when she became a Sr. Mod, things only got worse. She challenged a couple of the Admins on some issues and went so far as to accuse Lee of discriminating against Mormons and claiming that to be the reason Manna00 wasn’t also promoted. That is also false. Manna wasn’t promoted because she didn’t do much of anything, which is also why she was let go.
    Melissa was told originally that she was let go for inactivity, but that as a mistake and was told the truth about why she was let go. She is just choosing not to share that.

    My intension is not to hurt Melissa, but she isn’t telling the truth and I don’t want to see anyone hurt by her lies.”

  104. maree9304 says:

    hmm…interestink.

  105. subpariq says:

    Well I don’t know about the rest of it, but lee did make bigoted comments towards lds. So I believe that has everything to do with her not getting promoted or let go. Until Lee has the decency to come out and either refute that interview or say that he was wrong and is learning, I will always believe that his bigotry influences his business decisions.

  106. bystander says:

    news to me. lol

  107. maree9304 says:

    just for shiggles

    “Lee Dodd, who first came to my attention for his recent participation in the controversial sale of ReligiousForums.com, has purchased foru.ms and made his opinion on Mormonism and Mormons in the community crystal clear. I’m including a few examples from his announcement thread.

    The question that everyone (or at least the Mormons and their antagonists) were wondering came up quickly. He was asked whether or not be believed that Mormonism is a cult. His response was clear, concise, and left no question. “Yes sir, I do.””

    Ill just follow Subpariq with the ‘yeah that’ sign.

  110. not tellin says:

    tara is LDS too? wow, learn something new every day!

  111. The Bored Bitch says:

    I thought Tara was conservative Protestant Christian?

    ….which is why the hatefulness of her posts always amazed me given its a religion supposedly about mercy and grace.

  112. MatildasMum says:

    Tara is sooo not LDS! LMAO

  113. Michelle says:

    Ok, I think you guys are getting your Tara’s mixed up. I think the Tara that BLsimpson is talking about is the Tara that got banned over the whole Kim thing. Tararaboomdeea is NOT LDS, she’s a non-denomination christian. Just wanted to clear that up.

  114. subpariq says:

    Did Lee know that Manna was LDS when she was “hired?” I would be inclined to believe this is a “melissa” thing if it weren’t for the fact that all of the mods seem to be quitting or getting their super mod status taken. There is something larger at work here.

  115. The Bored Bitch says:

    #113- I think we might need charts to keep everyone straight at this point. Maybe a wipe board with a mod tree, complete with user names and fire- able offenses.

    #114- *There is something larger at work here.*
    I heard weird bad ju ju music.

    Im wondering if Lee isnt getting ready to sell DS. Looking for the path of least resistance. Sell the board with new mods who are compliant, who dont have a history on DS.

  116. subpariq says:

    TBB I don’t know if he is getting ready to sell. He seems awfully involved in things like this. That adorable pregnancy shit and whatnot. But maybe he is. What I love is that this blog will come up when potential buyers start researching.

  117. MatildasMum says:

    Why would Lee sell? It’s a “successful” board, right?

  118. subpariq says:

    117-he is kind of in the business of flipping boards. Kind of like flipping real estate.

  119. maree9304 says:

    That’s exactly why he would sell it. Like subpariq said, he flips boards. Seriously, he owned a forum for less than a month and sold it for more than 20k.

  120. The Bored Bitch says:

    Which would explain his lame attempt to promote Huggies products on a cloth diapering forum etc. etc.

    He is attempting to bring big biz to DS.

  121. maree9304 says:

    And it explains that contest that he spammed!

    Check this out

    Q: db – How many websites in total do you have and what kind of traffic and revenue do you bring in on a daily basis?

    A: LD – In all I have about 50 developed sites which bring in between $4,000-$6,000 daily. The traffic from my network tops 2 Million Unique Visits monthly.

    Q: db – Can you say just how much your entire empire is estimated to be worth at this moment?

    A: LD – To me it is priceless.  Id I had to say, I would estimate it being worth $5-$10 Million.

  122. Angie says:

    “….which is why the hatefulness of her posts always amazed me given its a religion supposedly about mercy and grace.”

    Like religion has anything to do with hatefulness. That’s about the person, not the religion. Not agreeing necessarily about the specific person named here, just sayin’.

    What other boards does Lee own?

  123. The Bored Bitch says:

    #122- *Like religion has anything to do with hatefulness.*

    Like beauty, that is in the eye of the beholder.

  124. my2sons says:

    “Like religion has anything to do with hatefulness.”

    It shouldn’t but some people haven’t grasped that concept yet. Before I get bashed, I’m a Christian.

    Now, let’s get back to the topic. LOL!!

  125. McMamma 38 says:

    Whew–I just got through all the posts.
    I reallly like Sally–she’s sweet and very kind.
    Popcorn anyone?!

    Loving this blog sight btw!

  126. McMamma 38 says:

    Also I am so happy to learn that cowmommy(Crystal)is on here.
    Great liitle nugget of info,

  127. The Bored Bitch says:

    Morning check in for the good stuff.

  128. McMamma 38 says:

    Hee hee!Me too poster #127.
    Oh forgot to mention thanks for the heads up on some of the other folks mentioned.
    I will be oh so careful on DS…hmm.
    Teach me ya’ll.Lol.

  129. cowmommy says:

    I started not to respond but since my name has been thrown around a lot I figured I better respond. I am not a regular on here, I have been linked here several times either when my name has been mentioned or like, when this comes up, and I check it out then, but I get enough of the drama there, I don’t need to follow it here ROFL<See I can be funny….
    Anyways, not everything Ben has said has been true(acting like I am a regular here, etc.) Not everything that “annonymous” said is true(way to wear those big girl panties there annonymous) I will not elaborate any more, anyone confused has been apologized to for any confusion and given the exact reason they were demodded and that is for their ears not for everyone here. Sorry to not be chiming in with some juicy info just figured I would at least say I am NOT a regular here. But I do have friends<go figure..that will link me when I’m being talked about to see if it warrants a response. You all have a great day and God Bless.

  130. Mamatutu says:

    That was a bunch of tail chasing nonsense.

    Anyone feeling confused?

  131. cowmommy says:

    OK I’m not a regular here, Annonymous and Ben Lied, a lot….straight enough?

  132. subpariq says:

    Thanks for the laugh cowmommy. After seeing how you conduct yourself, I believe ben over you. It is very unprofessional and unfair for you to come over here and call someone else a liar yet to offer no supporting details. If you “can’t” give details, then you sure as shit shouldn’t be over here disputing what anyone else says. Don’t get me wrong, I love that you’re here because stupidity really is the best comedy. And I know that you’re always here reading every word and silently seething, well, except for the last time when you were such a little twit and whined on ds too.
    I’m sure you won’t be woman enough to answer this. But would Melissa or any of the others demodded be banned for telling what happened here? Seems like that would be really unfair since you’ve come over and stirred shit up. Seems like Manna must feel pretty betrayed since her title says “et tu brute?” I’m sure that reference is lost on you. Seems only fair that they can say what they want off of diaper swappers with no repercussions. What say you cowmommy?

  133. cowmommy says:

    Well, after seeing your language, I really don’t care who you believe over me. No one is being banned for what was said here, why would we? The laugh is on you if you think I’m reading every word here. With that, I make my exit on this particular blog/comments. No, I will not share private information from private messages because I follow the rules. I will leave with saying I’m not the evil person you have portrayed me to be in the past and have helped hundreds of mamas in many different ways so I can deal with the fact that some people don’t like me just because I’m an admin. And I use my real screen name here and don’t hide behind some anonymous screen name. Like SOME people. Amanda and Melissa were great mods, there were just issues that couldn’t be overcome. Whoever said “Manna wasn’t promoted because she didn’t do much of anything, which is also why she was let go.” Lied. Maybe it was you, who knows but IDK why anyone would want to be so hateful and mean as the “anonymous” person who wrote that. Enjoy your little blog and potty mouth, I will make my exit now until linked to something else I need to see.

  134. The Bored Bitch says:

    *I will not elaborate any more, anyone confused has been apologized to for any confusion and given the exact reason they were demodded and that is for their ears not for everyone here.*

    So, those of you who were demoted…do you feel the same?
    Do you protect the image of those who fired you or do you speak up?

    My ears are quite willing to listen.

    Why were you demoted?

  135. subpariq says:

    Thanks for staying true to form cowmommy. Make way for the martyr, cowmommy. She’s helped hundreds of mamas! Because I know you’re still reading, you contradict yourself. Generally wonderful employees are not terminated or demoted. Unless there is a personal reason. Like, I don’t know, say….the owner doesn’t like LDS. And just so you know, I don’t dislike you because you’re admin. I dislike you because you’re a bitch. You make stupid and insensitive comments. You are delete happy. You don’t support diversity. And you kind of just a whiney sucky in general kind of person.
    Since nobody can get in trouble for what is said here, I hope the mods that were wronged by ds come on and tell their side. Because as much as I might not have had any love lost for melissa, they way ds handled this was sucky as usual.

  136. MatildasMum says:

    LOL subpariq? Why do you care so much?

  137. The Bored Bitch says:

    Im going to go with

    “Because Subpariq is not a sheeple” for $800, Alex.

    (see what I did there? the lemming reference was tempting but I prevailed)

  138. McMamma 38 says:

    I’m learning oh so much–teach away!This students thirsty for knowledge,Lol.
    I agree–my post was one of those deleted,btw.

  139. subpariq says:

    M’sM. How much is “so much?” The reality is that I am pissing some of my free time away online. Lee’s bigotry annoys the shit out of me. Cowmommy’s stupidity is amusing and she is fun to poke. I don’t like to see people getting screwed over and treated unfairly even if I don’t like them which is what I think happened to the demodded mods. I will admit that I like to discuss and I like a platform which allows me to discuss with profanity. I like sticking it to the man (in this case ds and lee). I like to gossip. If you think or are trying to imply that I would lose sleep over any of this or that I care about any of this beyond peripherally, be careful that you don’t break any windows in your glass house with the stones you’re throwing. Afterall, if you look at almost any thread with the slightest controversy on ds, there you are. Why do you care so much?

  140. MatildasMum says:

    *snort* Just wondering why you get so pissy. That’s all. 😀

  141. Janna says:

    HOLY cowmommy…..demodded??? Is that like dethroned???

    btw she is the twatwaffle that gave me a strike for speaking an OPINION…then I called the mods a bunch of Nazi wannabees and was banned……boo friggin hoo…..what a bunch of BS.

    btw I borrowed “twatwaffle”, it is now a staple in my vocab thanks to this blog!!!

  142. Tara says:

    Wow so much has come to the surface since I was wrongly kicked for speaking the truth. Looks like ppl learn fact from fiction eventually.

  143. Tara says:

    And what an ugly ass monster avatar I’ve been given. LMAO! Why do I have to be the one with multiple eyes?! Tee Hee!

  144. maree9304 says:

    LMAO That is a weird lookin’ monster!

  145. umm huh?! says:

    this is funny. i never knew all the drama behind ds. i was hinted at it when i lost my siggy for no reason

  146. Mamatutu says:

    So what did happen Tara?

  147. cassie says:

    i think the tara that is speaking in #142 is the other tara who was banned… was your un journey? i don’t remember… but it’s not tararaboomdea.

    oh yeah cowmommy was not demodded, she just came here to stir the pot some.

  148. illrememberthisname says:

    i don’t know why anyone would really want to put up with the crap that happens on DS anyways. I haven’t had any run ins with mods but some people forget to take their anti-stupid pill daily and I sure wouldn’t want to deal with the mess that creates, ESP for no benefits.

  149. BAM says:

    WOW this is all so interesting. I got in trouble the other night for writing a vent on another person cause she was being a bitch on every post she made. I didn’t even use a name. I know some pp heard about that drama, it was a couple of nights ago. Mods ended up having to erase like 3 thread that were related to mine. Truthfully it made DS leave a bad taste in my mouth. She was the one being rude in every post, then I get in trouble for pointing it out!

  150. What a wanker says:

    Can someone help me to understand.

    Okay, so, I have seen the Lee Dodd LDS interview and I realize that he is ummm, well, he doesn’t like LDS members, however, there are some people who say that he and DS protect Suzanne and GM. I don’t get that, unless he doesn’t know, but according to Suzanne’s LJ profile, SHE is LDS. So what is up with that? Did I miss something?

  151. thwwhiteninja says:

    Dude, why are people’s religions playing such a big role in a friggin’ diaper site? WTF? Who the fuck cares what religion anyone is to begin with. I can’t believe I now know the religion of like 10 people from reading the comments to this blog.

  152. thewhiteninja says:

    lol I mispelled my name

  153. not tellin says:

    lee is up the ass of anyone owning a business that can make him more money… hes not going to allow the bashing of someone who is an advertiser, even if she deserves it sometimes. its all about the $$ and obviously lee doesnt give a shit about anything BUT money, certainly not the members, otherwise there wouldnt be more banned than active, lol

  154. BAM says:

    McMamma38 Thanks, I thought you would know its me!! I didn’t know what to use I thought about just using EVEN but then I decided to just use my DD nickname.

  155. lysol says:

    “Generally wonderful employees are not terminated or demoted. Unless there is a personal reason. Like, I don’t know, say….the owner doesn’t like LDS. And just so you know, I don’t dislike you because you’re admin. I dislike you because you’re a bitch. You make stupid and insensitive comments. You are delete happy. You don’t support diversity. And you kind of just a whiney sucky in general kind of person.”

    Did you ever know that you’re my hero, subpariq?
    Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  156. just me says:

    Well cover me in fuzzies and call me a sheeple because I actually like cowmommy. I am all about raging against the machine and she is probably one of the only mods I haven’t taken an issue with so take that as you will.
    The rest of the mods and admins I either don’t know or they have their heads shoved way too far up Lee’s ass.

  157. BAM says:

    did anyone see? Today there is an AD for LDS on the main page of DS.

  158. Wow–well blow me over Bam! I like your un on here–and your cute monster!
    Mine looks like a fluffy fluff ball,Lol–so appropriate for me.
    Yeah–I thought it was you.Happy to see you on here my friend!

  159. BAM says:

    Thank you very much. my monster looks surprised or shocked!LOL You decided to change your UN, I like it but I like the one before to. 🙂

  160. ty–Bam.My new one says it all and is so true right now.
    You definityly look shocked!
    Mine looksa like it has horns growing out of it’s head and it’s raising HELL! To top it all off–I have a big mouth.
    Hee hee.

  161. lysol says:

    Too many horny monsters around here lately.

  162. Stephanie says:

    I don’t get the bashing against Crystal (cowmommy). She’s been nothing but kind and helpful to me in the year I’ve been on DS. I can understand some of the others, but Crystal??

  163. boom1128 says:

    it looks like tara and shawnah are both mods again. things that make you go hmmm…..

  164. Christine says:

    #165 – That’s what I was thinking. Tara went from de-modded to Senior Mod?
