As I’ve mentioned before, I have a somewhat generic Gmail address that people often accidentally type into Web forms.
That’s how I found myself signed up for an account at MyMudSpace.com, the Web’s leading social network for people who like driving trucks through mud, also known as “mudding.” And that’s how I ended up getting a curious e-mail last week, one that no Web start-up should ever find itself in the position of having to send out. It was from Simon Maziarz of Jupiter, Fla., who runs MyMudSpace, and it is best appreciated in full:

Dear Mymudspace friends, members, and new members,
As some of you may already know, there has been some major changes within the ranks of the Mymudspace.com management.
Effective 6-01-2009 Mr. John Jackson ( JohnF350 ), formally a partial owner of Mymudspace, will no longer share the responsibilities, or day to day functions of the business. After careful consideration and numerous attempts to correct the problems which Mr. Jackson helped to create, it has been found to be in the ” BEST INTEREST” of Mymudspace.com, to part ways and TERMINATE Mr. Jackson’s relationship to the website. Mr. Jackson has NO further direct involvement with Mymudspace.com, nor will he have any FUTURE involvement.
If you receive anything from Mr. Jackson via e-mail, be it known that Mymudspace does not share or support any of the opinions and/or implications in the content which he distributes. We also do not support any of his future actions or websites. Many of you may have foreseen this action coming, and its nothing new … but for those members who didn’t and have forged a friendship with Mr. Jackson, please understand, this is and was never a personal matter. This was a business decision which will better the website and keep Mymudspace moving forward in the years to come.
Friends, Mymudspace.com was born to connect the mud bogging community together. To allow people to forge friendships with other people of the same interests, and to show many folks what the world of mudding is really about. This is what Mymudspace is, and what we will continue to strive for, each and every time you log on to the site.
There’s a HUGE future for Mymudspace and its members. There will be many new and exciting contests coming up for Mymudspace. We at Mymudspace.com invite you to share the experiences with us!
If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
