You do realize that TI.com is Texas Instruments right?
I don’t know if you know what you’re doing, because I checked and Theasf.com is taken, and so is Theasf.net, in fact I have the full Who-Is info right here, name address number, everything.
Theasf… (and I’m speculating because I don’t really visit Theasf.net, so I have no idea what has happened lately) likely has their host down, or something else.
AC Dropout was likely referring to TaiwanIndependence.NET not .COM (.com isn’t a forum and is owned by a friend).
As for TaiwanUnited Forums (AC really needs to get his facts straight, it was never TaiwanIndependence.com forums). It was actually very tolerant, I, and the moderators, didn’t even suspend people immediately when they made racial slurs, foul language etc, stuff that is a no-no here, of which most came from Theasf.net regulars. I actually gave them about 4-5 stern warnings for flagrant (not even moderate violations) before suspension, and if they were suspended it was usually for a few hours and eventually a few days or so. I personally gave AC the most leeway before well… you can figure it out. Eventually others were allowed in, and we never banned anyone but did lock up rampant ‘aliasing’.
However after a while, people got tired of it. There was a vote that excluded violators, and it was decided that the forums were to be moved elsewhere to a undisclosed location, mainly because of a particular habit of “tag-team posting” (usually from Theasf.net regulars) in which we’d get about 50-100 posts bashing the forum or racism against members of the site, PER DAY! Ludahai was actually abused against often and he took it well better than anyone else I’d ever met. There was a vote and basically, we moved it beyond the terrain and visibility of Theasf & Co, and many of us have actually progressed to meeting in person and have created successful projects.
Yes the forum still exists today.
