    Backstabbing? What do you think?

    First off sorry if this is in the wrong forum lol

    What do you think about people that backstabb others. Have you been on the backstabbing end or the one that got backstabbed?

    One of my rescent stories.
    I was working on this one website for about 6 months. as the tech admin. because Im the only coder on the site that know what to do to install hacks. So, A few weeks ago the other 2 admins. ask me to install a hack JUST FOR THE ADMINS to view PM's. Which I think is an ivation of privicy on their part. So I get deadmin for not doing the hack install. So I find out today that they got someone else to do it and now is admin. Do you think this is a form of backstabbing and what should I do about it. I am still a staff member Smod but I helped found this site as well I installed the board did all the updates and what not to the board.

    My problem is what should I do work more on my site and get it up and going again, and start being more active on boards I like and forget about that site. or try talking to the staff members.

    personally,if they would drop you over something as futile as that,let it go. It shows that they were using you for your abilities (which are damn cool abilities ) and not for your personality,if they're gonna be jerks.screw it. they dont deserve your time and patience.
    hope that helped

    If you don't want to do the hack you just don't do it, you made the right decision.
    When you're one of the working founders, the other admins shouldn't have the power to kill you off.

    You did the right thing.
    And you should talk to the stuff members.

    Reading pm's is really invasion of ones privacy
    and this is a serious problem.

    Correct me if I am wrong -
    if there are pm's, there is a some sort of society.
    therefore, if that society finds out, that their
    private information is not private anymore...
    well, in short, that site would lose the trust of it's
    comunity.
    the site would lose its face and popularity.
    and I think you know what that meens...

    Firstly, your refusal to install that hack for them was correct =)

    If the site you helped build is that important for you, fight for it. Talk to the admins and demand an answer. Keep in mind that they prob won't answer you. But also keep in mind that you have a wild card in your hand. Imagin what the community would do if they found out that their PMs were being read by admins?? I know I wouldn't be happy.

    But if you think you could make a site just as cool, without their help, start one up yourself. But I still think members need to know if their privacy is at risk. Those people obviously don't have the same morals and standards as you....if you think that's enough to break off the partnership then go ahead, ditch them. I don't think you'll be very happy sticking with them in the long run ^^

    Backstab happens a lot in the real world esp. the working places. Unless you keep your stand, you'll be stabbed so fast, you won't even realise it. You have done what's right, and should be proud of it

    I agree with everyone else. What you did was right. In fact, if they demote you for taking that stance, then that's somewhere that you want to be. Having been a founder of the site, I would hope that the others could have respected your opinion and your decision and not felt the need to get rid of you.

    Poor team play on their part.
