Dave Kellog and Patty Smith close down Mad-cows.com FOREVER! But wait!

After a couple of 14 day countdowns to garner page views, Dave Kellog has finally decided to throw in the towel and shut down Mad-cows on 10/1/2006. He promises there will be no “sale” like the imaginary one with mootalk.com, but leaves open the possibility that the site could stay open if the right people ran it. Dave even goes into calling his current members nasty names born from some kind of pent up frustration I guess.

He also promises all personal data will be removed after the site’s closure. That’s still to be seen.

He begs people to sign up at goodtopics.com instead, run by the elusive and secretive Patty Smith, a site that’s been dead for over 2 months.

But maybe he really could sell the site under the right circumstances, but he won’t provide any monthly cost statistics because he’s ashamed that he really hasn’t spent very much money on site hosting as he’s promised! He talks about “Apache upgrading itself” on a whim and that some Apache web server versions aren’t compatible with vBulletin! LIES!!
He can’t upgrade the mad-cows forums because some software in it (like the arcade) is incompatible with the newer version! LIE!! (Tntu.net is on vbulletin 3.6.0 and runs the same arcade software!) He claims to spend $300 monthly on the site yet still gets charged overages on bandwidth space! LIE!! He doesn’t want people to know about the “real” expenses!

No updates from Dave about where all the charity money went, or if all the investors in his mad-cows investment scheme were reimbursed, or even what that investment scheme entailed, it’s all still secret. There are still threads on Mad Cows from March with him begging for donations to keep the site running.

MOOOOOOO! This just in, MAD-COWS To CLOSE DOWN!

How long before we see another scam run by Dave Kellog? I predict by Christmas.

Erika from tippypaws.com freaks out!

I can’t believe a supposed pet lover could be so cruel! I almost cried real tears!

Erika tries to set me straight by talking about Cuff in this post.

Sir,

We don’t know each other (hmm, maybe that’s a GOOD thing?) but I did happen to read some of your articles. While I can partially agree with certain posts you made I certainly hope that you don’t call yourself a journalist. That would be a scary thought, considering that journalists or publishers should always do resource before they make statements. Don’t you think so?

Since you obviously did not have enough resources to do proper research let me point out a few major errors (we don’t want to go that far and call them lies) in your posts. I certainly trust you to publish the corrected versions in the spirit of unbiased publications, unless you are someone that can’t be taken serious, for now and in the future. I am sure you would not want to give the impression that you are making statements that are completely untrue, am I correct?

Here we go:

You post on your site:

Mad-cows pisses off enough members to start their own board

Friday, 23 June 2006
I’m sure the reasons are too numerous to mention, but a splinter group of mad-cows members (which you would think would number in the hundreds) have started their own board mad-bulls.com

I guess Dave Kellog (Crazy Chicken / CC / Fruit Loop) was charging $60 a year on mad-cows just to chat!
mad-bulls.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=66

I saw you posting at mad-bulls, and truly enjoyed your chat with former MC, BV and Moo-member CuFF, now suspended from most sites If you state that “Mad-cows pisses off enough members to start their own board”, this is the first error you made (and as a headline … tzzzz, what a blunder!) The members at MB have started their first – as we call it – “Snake Pit” about a year ago. One can’t really call that bikersbasementforum, the first site founded for banned and suspended MC-Members a successful venue, considering that most of the posts are “underground” and the 50-something membership dwindled down to maybe 5 regular posters. Now the second board does not look much more promising, but we certainly wish them luck. Maybe with your posts they will gain a little popularity, though I have watched that it is hard for them to keep unbiased members

Your statement that a membership at MC is $60.00/year is untrue also. Using the MC is free, all that is required is to sign up with a valid e-mail address. Some members decided that they wanted their “members-only” board within the MC and supported this part of the site with a monthly fee. Ahhhhh, does that sound different now? I definitely think that your informant (and banned member CuFF, aka CCsPathetic, aka IcontrolYouPussy, aka CCisaPunk , aka IamCuff, aka ….. insert several other names here) did miss to give you the correct information. (Here we go again, research Dave, research!).

Oh and there is one more MAJOR thing your informant missed telling you! Ms. “Moody”, also banned from MC due to her inability to control herself, showing some gratitude and gracefulness, and now one of the most outspoken posters at the Snake-Pit and MB, did receive a wonderful gift. A brand-new computer, monitor, the whole works, compliment of the MC and their members. “Crazy Chicken / CC / Fruit Loop'” presented this idea in an attempt to help her out as she was in a very unfortunate situation. Without his action she would still not be able to post her graceful thoughts, now at another board, but that really does not matter.

Respectfully,

gifts&things

I see that tippypaws.com and petstuffreviews.com (both Erika’s sites) use WordPress software. Because Ericka sucks Dave Kellog and Patty Smith’s hind tittie, they don’t have a copyright or “powered by” message in the footer of their software. I’m checking the wordpress GPL to see if there is a requirement for this, and if so, it’ll make Ericka (supposed pet lover) a GPL license VIOLATOR!

Mad-cows pisses off enough members to start their own board

I’m sure the reaons are too numerous to mention, but a splinter group of mad-cows members (which you would think would number in the hundreds) have started their own board mad-bulls.com

I’m sure more of Fruit Loop Dave’s crazy antics will eventually surface, and maybe he’ll actually have to face his lies this time without Patty Smith (cowpaddy) or himself editing things to their liking.

Dave Kellog Reads Members’ Private Messages

Dave Kellog (consistent kook and liar) of mad-cows.com and goodtopics.com has a vbulletin script installed on mad-cows.com designed specifically to read his member’s private messages, one of the the biggest moral abuses any forum administrator could make.

How do I know this? Well, I was perusing the vbulletin.org web site, and noticed that somebody had actually written a plugin for vbulletin for administrators to do such a thing, although its highly frowned upon for security and moral reasons…
Super Admins can Read Private Messages

Here’s where the hack is installed on mad-cows, you can tell it exists, because you get an authorization screen for the administrator control panel.
http://www.mad-cows.com/forums/admincp/pm.php

If the script wasn’t there, you’d get a “Not Found” error like this:
http://www.mad-cows.com/forums/admincp/pmxxxxxx.php

I guess defrauding charities wasn’t enough for Dave, he’s now pursuing his members’ private messages without their knowledge. He’s a vile creature and this clearly shows that he is clearly out of control with personal privacy matters.

And not only does Dave fall into the slimeball category, Paypal has banned or suspended his account so that you can’t donate your hard earned money to his mad-cows.com site. Visit this page, and click on “donations”:
http://animation.mad-cows.com/

You’ll get a message “This recipient is currently unable to receive money.”. More bad news for Dave Kellog ([email protected])
