There were issues involving a lot of public opinion, but I don't think anything was being run into the ground while Jeremy still owned it.
I agree with this, but I still feel like I was deceived.

I would have had no problem if he was turning a profit, as long as he wasn't telling people that he was losing money to get them to give him more.

geeezze.... over 2 years later and im still bitter... lol
I have to agree.

I stood up for him and sent him extra money to help with the bills because he was "going broke" running the site.

Taking advantage of peoples' goodwill is a shitty way to run a business.

It was really sad how it all ended, but I will always have a fondness for that site. I met my husband there.

The previous forums were neglected for some time and were filled with spam and unanswered questions, but I hope to change that.
Perhaps by selling about.com?

I still have a soft spot for MJ too, Jer was a great guy IMO. People are in business to make money, when you mix friendship and business, things go awry. He put the time into building the site, he gets paid for it. Deal with it. If he was public with his earnings I am sure he would have been called greedy.

I knew him through MSU and MJ. There are 2 sides to every story. To call him a "scrotum" shows ignorance beyond belief. Don't hate people for being successful.
