The forum had a set of moderators, who did not always mind TOS themselves- in other words they took matters sinto their own hands.
So if one person was in a forum and they had a different opinion than the moderator who posted in their own territory then they were kicked off, banned whatever
It turned out somemods would hide information that held them in a "less than light" it got personal so in order to have a different, and in many cases valid opinion, on had to have another forum for the opposite opinion- This was before there were so many personal forums...There was Schultz and there was Andreas Moritz , and Ask Ana, BOB, Lillian, and Dusan posted then also. There were many Nom de Plumes.
About that time there was some upset between AndMore and Morless...some alkaline issue, so another personal forum was created to keep the peace (wink)
A lot of this type of thing came from the underlying issues with Identities and bascially talking to themselves as different Id's in their forums.
It was a pretty iffy combo of insiders and relationships between them
