Greetings:

As many of you know the finances of -=| The Drama Club |=- have been in total disarray. I blame myself for letting Trout keep the books. I had no idea he was investing most of our assets in a panda smuggling scheme. As it turns out, although they're really cute they make terrible pets. The bills have been piling up and things are getting desperate. I received a death threat from our veterinarian.

In order to create a greater influx of cash I've decided to repurpose -=| The Drama Club |=- as a TWEB WikiLeaks forum.
We'll monetize the venture by taking cash payments to not release damaging information.
Monthly subscription plans will be available - we've already plans to add auctions later (you can outbid someone's attempt to keep the info private).

If you have information on TWEB, its staff, or its members please forward that information to me for safe keeping.

Notice:
I'd like to thank the early adopters for the influx of photos, police reports, and medical examiner's reports generated by mossrose's lost weekend in Cancun.
While I appreciate the enthusiasm those photographs are already a part of the public domain.

Thanks.

- Meh GerbilIt looks like you might be onto a winner at last. The idea of a deliberately leaky sanctuary is not new but I am not sure that you should advertise that particular detail of the scheme if you expect it to succeed. A bit of subterfuge is usually needed of practitioners of the ancient art of blackmail.

WHOA there buddy, uh...nobody said anything about the big old 'B' word.

That would be illegal.
I'm talking information management.

Look, you pay to back up your computer to OneDrive or DropBox.
You pay those guys to keep your private information safe from prying eyes.
-=| The Drama Club |=- is offering a very similar service.

Sheesh, way to misread my post, firstfloor.

Gerbz, I have a photo essay of you in a compromising position with a burrito, some call girls, and a yellow balloon. How much will you pay me to allow you to store that in your vault?

We'll store that for free.

Yeah but I won't give it to you for free. But I will give it to the public for free if you don't pay me to store it. You can even use it in your marketing as proof of how good you can keep things secure and they will never get out!! :thumb:

As a 'taste' here is one of your 'friends' who was with you during the burrito incident.

I was wondering how many posts it would take before gerbil's latest scam ended up not just producing nothing but actually costing HIM money. He didn't even get to the second page. :no:

My problem is I need some sort of enforcement... the ability to strong arm people into line.
Any ideas?

It was a lost weekend long, long ago so you don't remember it but it led to the extinction of the dinosaurs when you didn't get your Mai Tai or Pena Colada (see Chicxulub crater (http://assets.atlasobscura.com/media/W1siZiIsInVwbG9hZHMvcGxhY2VfaW1hZ2VzL0NoaWN4dWx1Yl 9NYXAtMS0uanBnIl0sWyJwIiwidGh1bWIiLCJ4MzkwPiJdLFsi cCIsImNvbnZlcnQiLCItcXVhbGl0eSA5MSAtYXV0by1vcmllbn QiXV0/Chicxulub_Map-1-.jpg))

Given how far off her aim was, she'd already had a few. They probably ran out of pineapple juice, and she couldn't stand to wait for them to squeeze some more.

Indeed. Mossy is being irresponsible to just leave the Pin™ laying around where a child can get to it! We need much stricter Pin™ laws. Especially for Assault Pins™ like Mossy uses.
