FIRST, let me say this is the best JonBenét forum available and I was glad I was a part of making it what it is.
Then let me explain my actions.
When this forum was set up, "jameson" came on as the moderator.
"jameson" was invited AS jameson to help get this started, to set the rules and moderate the forum, to keep the peace. I was not asked to come on as an anonymous poster with no personality - I was asked to come on as "jameson".
It was a bit controversial, but I think it worked out fine.
I came on and worked hard to set it up, to keep the topic current, to keep the forum a place I would want to spend time, a place for JonBenét.
I NEVER stopped any Ramsey discussion. I may not have participated in some discussions, but no Ramsey topic was not allowed.
When I woke up this morning, I never expected this to be my last day as moderator.
But it is.
I will only say two things.
1. I feel the moderator of a forum should be allowed to do that task.
2. Being the moderator shouldn't mean the moderator can't post whatever he/she wants. If I have to step down as moderator to post as "jameson", that's the way it has to be.
I would love to stay on as moderator, but some felt my name on the door was a bad reflection on the forum. So it isn't there anymore.
That's OK. Life goes on.
The forum is here, it is strong.
I am sure Murphy will do her best to keep it that way.
Now, that's enough on this subject.
Back to case.
