Jim Gallegos has done a fine job in organising the event – this is the 10th annual gathering for the collecting community, which was previously under the MCCH banner.
It is going to be a good one – there are some members of the MCF who are attending and excitement is getting akin to a 10 year old girl at a Justin Bieber gig. It’s all good – and really shows how important an event this really is in the collecting calendar year.
It has been well documented about the events which has led to the MCCH stopping all association with The Gathering. It has been the stuff of incredible things. More so for the fact that Mark Curtis – the self proclaimed Adminstor (God donut, auto cucumber) – has severed all ties with The Gathering, and ostracising one of the most influential men in model collecting in the process.
I can only describe this behaviour as disturbing. This is not the rational of a man who has his marbles. More like a man who is a model short of a 10-pack.
Adminstor (God donut, auto cucumber) has proclaimed that the event is not taking place. The Gathering has been cancelled. So Adminstor (God donut, auto cucumber), how the fuck did you come to this conclusion when you cannot get off your fat Kennesaw arse and organise it? This was all Jim’s work, yet you are trying to cancel it?
I really feel sorry for the poor loyal b’stds on the MCCH. They are really craving some info on The Gathering, yet all posts that refer to this have been deleted, or moved somewhere obscure which means that they cannot be found easily – the latter the placate some of his closest “allies” on the site. My question – yet again – is why? Why is there a need to banish mention of The Gathering? What harm is there?
Some of the loyal MCCH members will be attending the Gathering this year. These are the folk who ONLY view the MCCH and nothing else. They will not get any information from the Gathering at all due to Curtis and his issues. This is a real shame – these folk (apart from the odd nutter) don’t really deserve this, but it seems that if Curtis gets punished, they all get punished. “Stay with me, or don’t come back” seems to be the somewhat desperate message.
I really hope that some truths are exposed at the Gathering of the events that have led to this sorry state of affairs. Clearly those who are loyal and defend need to hear about how their generosity to keeping the MCCH board running may have also been diverted to help Adminstor (God donut, auto cucumber) in other matters.
I see there no point in Curtis consistently denying that the Gathering is taking place. This is the path to self destruction. The MCCH was once the pride of the collecting community forum-wise – every bugger was on there, discussing the hobby. And now? A shadow of its former self, it really is…..the best you can see is sschevyman’s pointless postings of his collection on a regular basis, which just seems to be a way of boosting his post count. More visitors than members.
I just feel sorry for Mark Curtis – I really do. Why can’t the man suck it up, apologise and just get on with it? His “house” is on very shaky foundations at the moment – will the Gathering rock those foundations to core?
Possibly, but methinks Adminstor (God donut, auto cucumber) is a resilient chap. But I just don’t get this need for control. Maybe he was bullied at school – bog flushed on his first day, hence the small man syndrome he exhibits. Why the need to not mention eBay – I mean, FFS…..what have they ever done to him?! The consistent banning of members and infractions for speaking out against Mattel. I mean, he is not part of the Gathering anymore, so now what?
Who knows. I would really like to see this picture below happening one day:
However, this final quote from Adminstor (God donut, auto cucumber) himself about this year’s Gathering says it all really:
Should you be going to another event, go. Have fun. I am most unwelcome there, and will not be going myself.
Good. Just fuck off then.
Like the Millwall, no one likes you, no one cares. You are a sad, lonely man. It doesn’t have to be this way, but you started the war.
Enjoy playing with yourself.
And the models if you can be bothered.
