I think it lives on in name, but only in name.
It's a good few years back now. I used to look over someones shoulder at the site, but wouldn't surf things like that on my own PC
Busted wasn't it? seized servers, perhaps in Canada. Couple of year court case. I missed it all happen, It's just what I heard
Things are going great there. Its been back for awhile now!
........... it was just always there ... until it wasn't. .............
It didn't take a rocket scientist to see OG was about to go down.
........... the site was hemorrhaging members and deteriorating quickly once it was bought out by the owner of CannabisWorld who also owned seedbank Heaven's Stairway.
After the Nark Emery takedown by USA, Gypsy and others saw the obvious implications of connecting a grow site to a seed bank in a country where it was illegal (Canada/USA) and created ICMag (server located in Netherlands/seedbanks in UK, all legal) in time to welcome the immigrants.
.........mentioned on CW at the time. People were complaining about OG as well as rollitup, I believe. I think the criticism was about people being too rude and some other stuff......
I visited overgrow.com last night. Seemed to be a fairly pleasant site, and lots of folks helping others in the few threads I reviewed. A fair bit less vitriol (or inflated sensitive ego) than some sites... At least in the bits I viewed
OG had a forum called The Shark Tank where free speech was allowed and a known poster could even post under a guest handle.
....... problem was that some of the CannabisWorld hotshots were getting roasted in the OG Shark Tank, most notably 'breeder' Vic High, especially after he chose to out the real life name of his rival, Sam Skunkman in OG's Shark Tank.
............... shortly thereafter, Vic High's real life name AND place of (family owned!) business was outed in return in the Tank!
I'm pretty darn sure that the main reason CW/Heaven's Stairway owner purchased OG was to abolish the Shark Tank (which they quickly did!) to control this unwanted info as several CW hotshots in partnership with Vic had to tear down their grows along with poor ole Vic!
............... no more of their seeds being produced or sold at Heaven's Stairway!
When it came down to it, the economics of this formerly lucrative arrangement played a huge roll in what subsequently went down, the demise of Hratch Bagdalion's entire empire, OG/CW/HS!
After the prosecution of Nark Emery you'da thought they would have been paying attention, but no, all they could see were the buck$ - blinded by the light!
