Let me clear this up for you. Rick voluntarily took a leave of absence to help his wife with illness and recovery. He was not asked to leave nor was there reason for him to be asked to leave. Rick has always been an excellent Moderator and friend. Sean did indeed ask Rick personally to come back when I decided to take a leave to deal with my own Father’s illness. The comments on here absolutely disgust me to a level beyond belief. I’m glad you people remain anonymous because I would be tempted to ban you myself. If you have any questions regarding MY identity, feel free to message me at Hannity, Facebook, or my email provided here.
Interesting spin by Goodlife. I suppose her version could be true but its very spun. Immediately prior to Firewatch stepping down he got overruled on a decision by Goose and the other mods. He made one of his famous arbitrary heat of the moment decision to punish a poster for no valid reason. The next day comes the announcement that he’s not a mod anymore. A little birdie who would know given his / her connections said this did not go over well with Firewatch. Now its entirely possible that it was suggested that he take a break from moderating to focus on the problems in his personal life since he allowing the stress / concern to affect his decision making as a mod. Backing this up is the fact that immediately after he did come back it was if a pod person had replaced him and he was much more even tempered and fair as a mod. Unfortunately the new Rick only lasted a short while before he started moderating like the old one again.
Here is a fresh page to continue the conversation if anyone is so inclined.
