My reply?
 

You need to send picture of you sodomizing a male dog. This picture will be posted on the forum. Then you will have your account back.

It was late at night, I think maybe 2 a.m. I was at home. There was a double knock on the door. Both dog and I looked at the door. Friend or foe this late at night? It's moments like these I wish I had adopted a German Shepherd instead. I walked stealthily to the door and listened for sounds coming from the other side. There was none.

 

I found a note stuck to the door. It read: "Re-admit Holzer. CROMPTON has a new strategy."

Very unlikely. This forum is run by a team of professionals. You guys make it sound as if an overstretched itenerant tailor is running this place. Whose parents thinks he's unemployed.

You must be eccentric a man Jeremy. Most of your post indicate a dry and serious facade of a man. 

 

But this one had me burst laughing out loud. So much so that other patrons of the hotel were staring at me. 

 

Itinerant tailor - must be a world first for that term. Where do you normally meet clients?

I've been looking into the pathetic page rank of this forum. For search term like "bespoke tailoring", my site jeremytok.com actually ranks higher than this forum, thekerbau.com. It's unbelievable that the commercial site of a tailoring business would outrank a non-commercial forum with near-daily fresh content and that moreover has thousands of pages of real valuable content. Why does jeremytok.com outrank thekerbau.com in nearly every related search term like "custom tailor" or even "wedding suit tailor"? How is that even possible?

 

It turns out nobody knows. Sometime in 2012, Google changed its algorithms which caused nearly all forums the world over to drop in traffic severely due to lower page rank.

I've not found a cure.

Why was the forum down for more than two weeks?

 

Basically, CIMB would not pay Invision Power Services, the host of this forum. It didn't matter if I tried to pay Invision directly with my card, or if I paid by way of PayPal. I also could not use my more than RM1k of paypal balance to pay Invision because paypal has a policy of not allowing you to use your balance. Paypal uses your balance to invest in assets which yields it a profit.

 

CIMB doesn't itself know that it keeps rejecting payment to Invision, even though CIMB keeps sending me the 6-digit OTP each time I tried. As far as CIMB is concerned, no payment request was ever made.

 

I tried solving the problem by opening an account with Public Bank. But apart from my IC, they wanted proof that I really lived where I said I live. I thought it was stupid---what does it matter? I also had no"proof" nor was I interested in showing them any. So I left and went to AmBank. I could open an account there with an IC and RM100.

 

I paid Invision through my brand new AmBank card.
