The "late" LTAH Forum


Hello fellow Hairheads,

Well, all I can say is this situation has become mind boggling. I have been overwhelmed by the immense amount of kind offers of help and support for our "late" forum.  I hope everyone understands that this happened so suddenly and without any warning that I need some time to determine what my options are and decide if there is a future for me running another forum.

I must admit that the way the Clippershave Network went about stealing the LTAH forum is unconscionable. Yes, they did outright steal it no matter how they try to justify their actions. Don't believe the lies they are spreading. They are total bullshit. Daniel never tried to acquire LTAH from me. Daniel never offered me the chance to buy the ltahforums.com domain name that he bought trying to hijack traffic to his web site. Daniel never offered me unlimited membership to his premium content. I never denied Daniel's request to remove material relating to Clippershave as he is accusing me of. I consistently removed material relating to Clippershave as requested by Daniel. Actually they were not requests but hostile demands, including a laughable lawsuit threat for slander. I never slandered anyone. It got to the point that we had to filter the term "Clippershave" on the forum. I never started a vendetta against Daniel. It was Daniel who started a vendetta against me and LTAH because we would not allow him to advertise on our forum, as per the original free-forum.net terms of service agreement (TOS). For some reason he did not understand the TOS agreement that web sites that contain nudity or adult material are not allowed . I was not going to subject the forum to being removed because he wanted to advertise on it. The accusation by Daniel, "its Jason's pride that got him in the situation that he is in" is pure garbage.

Obviously I am not pleased with what they have done. Not only did they steal the LTAH Forum design and layout that I created and continually developed over many years, bought the ltahforums.com domain in their attempt to hijack LTAH Forum web traffic back in November, now they've stolen the whole LTAH Forum without ever contacting me or allowing me to get it back. How insanely crazy is that?

Anyway, all of the offers of support are greatly appreciated. I am busy with work right now and I will be going over my options this weekend. To be honest, my initial feelings after the forum was stolen was f--- it , I'm done, I'm tired of all this crap. But because of all the kind offers and support I feel like I may want to come back more energized than ever. I still have a ton of material to share and new ideas to develop. A private domain will be the way to go. I think we could make it bigger and better than the "late" LTAH Forum. I say "late" because LTAH is now dead and it's now in Clippershave's hands. I will never be associated with anything Clippershave does.

Also, I hope nobody goes out and starts another forum using the LTAH name. If I start a new forum it will have a new name. In the meantime I hope all hairheads will use our good friend Tat00x's forum to stay in touch with each other over at the Hvids Forum at:
http://www.hvids.net

I will be posting more info here on this blog as I figure out what to do. Thanks to everyone's great support! (To Tat00x and kensrs, you'll be hearing from me soon.)

The LTAH Forum has been hacked and hijacked!

The Clippershave Network has hacked and hijacked the LTAH Forum. They have changed the forum settings and I am unable to access the forum. They also impersonated me by posting a false topic claiming the LTAH Forum was acquired by the Clippershave Network. That is a totally blatant lie! The forum was stolen without my knowledge or authorization. LTAH would never associate with those unscrupulous people. Our forum host, free-forum.net, has been contacted and we are also pursuing legal action against Clippershave for their illegal activities.

New LTAH Forum Registration Info For 2016

We have changed the procedure for signing up or registering for the LTAH Forums because of forum security concerns. We now will only open registrations on a periodic basis. When the "Register" button appears on the LTAH Forums homepage, registrations are open. If the "Register" button does not appear, registrations will not be available at that time.

Continuing attacks to close the forum by troublemakers, trolls, spammers and others are the major reason behind the forum registration changes. Past troublemakers, haters, trolls, reposters and spammers are not welcome and will not be allowed on the forum. If anyone who is found to be involved in this type of activity on the forums will immediately be banned. In doing so will help to keep the forum running smoothly and ensure a positive and friendly forum atmosphere for our members.

Please be aware that only one forum account per person/email address/ip address is allowed.  Multiple accounts using the same email address and ip address are prohibited and will be removed. We do not allow registrations using a proxy server or a VPN when signing up. Pending registrations are reviewed using anti-spam databases. Any pending registration info that is found on ip and email blacklists will not be accepted. New members will only be approved and activated after detailed consideration and review by LTAH.

After signing up, please send an email, along with your username, to ltahforums@gmail.com WITHIN 48 HOURS, requesting your account to be activated. If you do not send an email request for account activation WITHIN 48 HOURS, your pending account will automatically be removed. After your pending account registration is reviewed and approved, we will send you an email notifying you that your forum account has been activated. Forum registrations that are not approved will not be notified.

Please save and keep your forum user information in a safe place in case of future problems.

Thanks,
LTAH Forums

Forum crashed again

Once again the forum has crashed and is inaccessible. It looks to be a problem with the forum's database. Our host, free-forum.net, has been notified about the problem and hopefully they can restore the forum and bring it back online very soon.


Sorry for the inconvenience,

The forum has crashed

It looks like the forum has crashed, according to the error message received when trying to access the forum. I have no idea what happened. There's basically nothing I can do to get the forum back up as I don't have access to the forum's host server or the forum's settings. Only our web host can fix whatever is wrong with the forum. I've notified our forum host, free-forum.net, about the situation and hopefully they can fix it and bring it back online soon.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Jason

Forum is down

Just to let everyone know that the 2014 LTAH Forum has been down for the last couple of days. Our forum web host, free-forum.net, went down Tuesday night leaving all of the forums that they host offline and inaccessible. I have no idea what happened or why our forum host went offline. I've emailed free-forum.net about the situation but have yet to receive an answer from them. Hopefully this situation will be resolved soon. I will post any new information here when I get it.

Thanks for your patience,
Jason

The LTAH Forum will be closed until August 1st, 2014

Due to a family health emergency out of state, I will be closing the LTAH Forum until August 1st, 2014. I do not have the time or resources to monitor the forum while I'm away. There is also an ongoing dispute on the forum which needs attention and because of this family emergency I do not have the time to resolve the dispute. To keep the dispute from being unmonitored and most likely getting out of control, I have decided it is best to close the forum until I get back.

Thanks for your patience,
Jason
