WORD! I have junior developers in several countries who could have whipped this jack-assery into shape in less than a month. Certainly the technical issues causing images to disappear, messages not get sent, site going down, etc. could be cleared up in a single day, two at the most.

All three have been charged with theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception.

McClure and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, started theAccording to Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina, it was all a scam.

“The entire campaign was predicated on a lie,” said Coffina. “Less than an hour after the GoFundMe campaign went live, McClure, in a text exchange with a friend, stated that the story about Bobbitt assisting her was ‘completely made up.’ She did not run out of gas on an I-95 off-ramp, and he did not spend his last $20 to help her. Rather, D’Amico, McClure and Bobbitt conspired to fabricate and promote a feel-good story that would compel donors to contribute to their cause.” fundraising campaign last year after claiming that Bobbitt gave McClure his last $20 to buy gas. The effort raised $400,000.

According to authorities, D’Amico and McClure had known Bobbitt for at least a month before launching the GoFundMe in Novemeber 2017, and had become acquainted with Bobbitt during their frequent trips to a local gambling casino.

The fundraising campaign raised nearly $403,000 through over 14,000 donors. GoFundMe says all donors will receive a full refund.

How does Blue fit into this whole scenario though?

Got some weird fudge going on with EB right now. I'm logged in and can post as me, but when I hit the "my page" section it takes me to another members. I can see their collection, trades etc. Anyone experienced this?

Yeah, this is some seriously novice BS. Relatively no explanation where and what our money is actually doing.... i mean, ever since we threw money at this "upgrade", the site has actually became worse than before!!

Honestly, I think it's probably because there's been no changes since the last update whalaw made. With that said, I did just post in the Team member board, that I felt it would be a good idea to post more regular updates, even if there haven't been any new developments. Just so the silence isn't misinterpreted as neglect. I, personally, don't know any more than what was posted here by whalaw, in his last update.
