BREAKING NEWS- RUDIUS MEDIA MESSAGEBOARD SHUT DOWN

Not to take any of the attention away from Light's post from earlier today (read below- it's a great entry), the Rudius Media Messageboard has been shut down. D.O.A. Dead in the water. Stopped cold in its tracks.

Don't believe me? Click here.

Here's Tucker's final post on the RMMB:

"It is nearly seven years to the day since SlingBlade encouraged me to put up a forum on my site where we could talk shit to people, and in that time, this place has grown with me as I have gone from some random asshole with a website to a famous asshole with a #1 best selling book and movie.

This message board has been many other things to me over the years: Hilarious, enlightening, encouraging, distracting, frustrating, and above all, entertaining. I am glad it ran for as long as it did, and the community that grew up around it provided much value to many people beyond myself, and for that, I am very thankful.

But all things must eventually end, and for this board, that time is now. As helpful as this place was in it's time, I no longer have the time or desire to put in the effort necessary to maintain it.

That being said, various people who post regularly here have decided to spin their own niche communities off and keep going. I've encouraged them to do this, I think they are all capable of running an online community and I wish them the best of luck. If the subjects of these boards interest you, I encourage you to join and participate, as these will all be intelligent and well-run boards...

Though the message board that I started is shutting down, this does not mean I am retiring or stopping writing or anything like that. Quite the opposite. I am hard at work not only on my next book, Assholes Finish First, but another book that I will announce soon, and I have many other projects that will come to fruition over the next few years."

Good riddance, Tucker. I guess the revolution will not only NOT be televised, it won't even be on the internet.

So he doesn't have the time anymore for the RMMB (now that he has nothing to do), as he did when he was making a movie? I guess life leaves no time for moderating a message board when you are waiting in the soup line. RIP Tucker

From the new ChasingKaz site: "Finally, www.chasingkaz.com is going to be shut down on Nov 1 as will most, if not all of the Rudius related sites."

Get prepared for another post about the collapse of the Rudius "Empire".

Also check out Tucker's Facebook wall. It's more vintage Tucker Max in case you haven't gotten your fix in awhile.

If it hasn't been said already I would like to sound the alarm. With the website shutting down and Tuck promising to keep the content for "the future," I think its time to speculate what that future will be...

Plagiarism.

Instead of coming up with bullshit lies he has a treasure trove of other people's "true life" stories to pass off as his own. How many books do you think he can pump out with the thousand of stories now his sole property?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

is there any chance that the TM fake interview that was written is available to post here? I would love to read that again, and keep it preserved for the future.

Cheers!
