This piece of text has been written for all people who think there is a
fake Skid Row division in Belgium, a fake world leader and a fake WHQ.
The people who wrote the textfile called SR-READ.TXT are the actual Skid
Row leaders, yes, these are Zandor and Data Stream, and never did anyone
say the opposite. They are also MY leaders, but they awesomely were wrongly
informed by lamers who just wished to create probs between me and them
and also INSIDE Skid Row. So am I going to type a little answer to their
text which contained several mistakes due to wrong informations. The reason
why I take the keyboard today and not the phone is that I simply can't
reach my leaders, and this since a couple of weeks now. I don't have any
number, and you may believe I tried alot...
So, about those facts...
1- There is NO proper belgian Skid Row group, not even a division.
I am the ONLY belgian who ever took part in this 'fake group'. It is
*not* something I made with friends for fun... ALL MEMBERS of this
'fake SR' are all real Skid Row members coming from various countries.
More about this and a complete list will be typed below..
2- There has NEVER been a Skid Row World Headquarter in Belgium.
There is only a Skid Row Headquarter. This is a board I call regularly
and I often come at the sysop's home, and I took him as Skid Row HQ for
the members to easily meet as most members can BlueBox in Europe, but
quite less to the USA...
Never never.. never did we write anywhere that it was the WHQ, and
never never would we have chosen a 1 node BBS in Belgium as WHQ, be
3- I have been looking for some elite members for our new policy, yes,
but till now, NO NEW MEMBER HAS JOINED SKID ROW.
None was good or interesting enough to be kept as member, and the
consequence thereof is that NOBODY has been foolished. The people
currently in this 'fake SR' are the same as the old ones.
4- NEVER DID I SAY I WAS THE WORLD LEADER OF SKID ROW.
I said, and I am not afraid because that's what I said to everybody,
that I was TEMPORARY LEADER. This means LEADER, YES, BUT TILL ZANDOR
& DATA STREAM COME BACK.
I have always told that, and all old members I knew or met gave me
their agreement, you must know this. All we did, all I did was all done
to give a push to Skid Row, visually dead or almost for months now.
Non-SR members moreover have nothing to do in this story, it is not
their problem if I am leader forever or temporary leader.
And now enuff gossip... Let's analyse what really happened...
Some weeks ago now, Skid Row suffered the loss of his WHQ which was
UNLAWFUL ENTRY, then 7 SEAS. The scene got serious damages with the
callings cards problems and alot of US boards got closed. Most Skid Row
boards closed. After few weeks, I got calling cards and tried to call all
Skid Row boards worldwide. No one answered and I killed lotsa cards trying
to reach them again and again. I released one or two proggy's under the
Skid Row label, as I am coder in Skid Row, though there was no WHQ anymore
and no reachable trader at the moment. The situation was not different for
me, all SR members were in this case.. no contacts with the other members
and no idea about what to do...
Then did we get a call of 2 Skid Row traders on our board here in Belgium.
After some days of hesitation, I decided to take the leadership over
because I did not want to see Skid Row dying. This meant at my eyes:
- making the link between the different SR members again and decide about
a new policy together;
- release major cracks;
- do our best till Zandor & Data-Stream come back.
I began my part of the job. I was the head, and so had I to take the
decisions. I found crackers, a trainer maker, got calls from many old Skid
Row traders, and was offered demo/intro's by Chryseis. I asked them ECS
and AGA crack-intros for our releases, and was even offered a trackmo for
THE PARTY. The intros are now ready. The last problem was to find originals.
I have been offered several deals, but all said the same thing: to get
originals, I had to find calling cards, to give in exchange or to go & d/l
them. This last part has been a total failure, I never found enough calling
cards and so did I never get any original. A pitty when you know how much
time it took me to organize... this real cracking factory. So did I never
get originals for the waiting team.. so did our policy completely fail.
For the moment, all members are still ready and still waiting for originals.
Who did take part of this recovery movement ? The main actors/main old
DIOGENES - ME. BELGIAN SKID ROW CODER.
BOWEN - AUSTRALIAN SKID ROW SYSOP AND TRADER.
BLACK BEARD - AUSTRALIAN SKID ROW TRADER.
SCOUT - GERMAN SKID ROW TRADER
As you can see, I AM THE ONLY BELGIAN... As you can see, WE ARE ALL REAL
SKID ROW MEMBERS. I have chatted with them 3 several times, we have
decided all together to work TOGETHER on the Skid Row RESTABLISHEMENT.
BECAUSE WE ARE NOT JUST MEMBERS - WE ARE SKID ROW BROTHERS, OUR GOAL WAS
HAVING SKID ROW ROLLING AGAIN - IS IT A CRIME TO ORGANIZE SKID ROW TILL THE
COME BACK OF THE LEADERS ??? HAD WE BETTER ALL LEFT THE GROUP AS IT
HAPPENED IN LOTSA OTHER GROUPS ???
Their part of the job was trying to reach the most old members to get the
Skid Row BROTHERHOOD strong. I assume they reached alot of other members,
I know they were in contact with other members I never met myself. I was
not the big boss, this was a cooperation, I didn't give any order, only
proposals and they agreed.
I have also been in (short) touch with SCORPIO. This guy will also be able
to tell you we exchanged 2-3 messages and even if we never spoke about him
helping us, never did he tell me I was a 'fake' member, never did he cause
any problem, and I guess he is important enuff in Skid Row to cause
My policy has never depended only on these few members. I got contacts with
other people, indirect contacts via the other members, contacts with other
'well-placed' people like the leader of Rednex. All these people will tell
you the same story as me...
I have never considered this 'leadership' as a game, but well as a serious
job. We all wanted Skid Row strong because we *love* our group, and ready
for the leaders come back...
Now I am sure Zandor and Data-Stream are happy to finally know the truth
and I assume they understand us. If they don't, they may kick me, I don't
consider it's a crime to help them till their problems with the cops are
over. But I won't consider me kicked out till I get a call from one of them.
Their task as leader is leading members, and so do I wish to get a call.
This is normal, and this, I insist on this, is what I have been waiting for
for weeks now.
To the people who spread those rumours, I won't say anything. I perfectly
know who did. I simply can't understand how you can enjoy causing problems
to other people, spread f***g rumors. But never forget... spend your life
annoying other people and one day will come you won't have any friend
anymore. And please, stop talking about things you don't know. You are not
in Skid Row, shut up and let us in peace.
