Just cruising the internet looking for Rothbury news, and found this Proboards site. Apparently it is moderated by someone who has mistaken mod powers for god powers. Looking around I loved the thread where he accuses AC/Superfly of sending people to his board to trash talk Rothbury. Unless djjd is being naughty again It appears that he is using this as a reason to not tolerate dissension or discussion on his board. His right as a mod but it is pretty funny.
As a note this is not infobury, they are a nice bunch of people most of who started off over here, these guys seem a little nutty though. Here is the AC is out to get me thread.
Wow, that board is ridiculous. After posting in two topics (and tbh, I was providing genuine input on the topics, not just trying to stir anything up), I got a message from their admin. He responded to a thread I posted in to check my PMs, so I did, and this is our convo. Just to make everything clear, he changed my username from ACSuperfly to AC Superfly Sellout.
I am friends with a principal at AEG live... So...
If you want to use a competitors name fine but let me know why.
We have already had the Ashley Capp's interns come here and shit talk Rothbury....

Yea but your not affiliated with Rothbury, so I don't understand how that could be a problem.
And it's no particular reason, it's just I feel they have led this new rise in festivals. If not for Bonnaroo, I think it's safe to say Rothbury would not exist.
And you can't be serious, honestly that's ridiculous. I don't think anyone at AC would feel shit talking Rothbury, on a Rothbury fan page, is a reasonable use of their time as an employee or intern. Your joking, right?
Haha too funny. He has some serious insecurity issues. Maybe I'll make the effort after all to reset my IP and stop by again, seems like I'm missing out on some fun. Keep me posted in the mean time, this is hilarious!
Nice way to treat someone that was just looking for more Rothbury information. I followed the official bankruptcy case with great interest and was excited to see the line up - I would love to go - but maybe it is not the place for me.
Sorry that I stumbled onto what must be a private message board.
and his response was:
It is not private... 7 users have made AC Superfly related usernames today. AC Superfly has actually come on the board, with their real email addresses with the expressed intent to talk people out of Rothbury...
I will not promote a single penny for Mr. Capps nor do I even like having a single thread about Roo. His festival went from something great to a total piece of shit because of GREED. Using family/phamily in that manner is repulsive to me.
If I believed for a second that a user logging in with an AC related username was on the fence about Rothbury and that this was not just more childish BS I might care... I don;t.
I know where you came from, I know why you are doing this... It is weak, it is sad, you need a life.
followed by a seperate email 3 min later that said:
