Recently a very good friend of mine +Kristopher Price​​​ posted a screenshot of a two line conversation in regards to the DS-14 portal fiasco. While there was a heated discussion/debate/whatever you want to call it in the comments the fact remains that Kris was not in the wrong.

Other private conversations were had with JP that do show direct involvement in the portals removal and his reasoning for such, however these screenshots have not been shown at the request of +Joe Philley​​​ himself.

+Kristopher Price​​​ has since been receiving hate mail, threats of legal action, and attempted hacking of his google account. That has been escalating in severity over the last couple days. Whatever your position on this matter is THIS IS NOT OK.

I know that agent safety is something that +Joe Philley​​​ takes very seriously, as it was part of his reasoning for the portal removal. So please, in the interest of the safety of this agent I would like to request a public statement on the matter. 

+Ingress​​​ +NIA Ops​​​ +John Hanke​​​ +Brandon Badger​​​ +Brian Rose​​​ 

Edit: I would like to add that harassment of this kind is not and will not be condoned or tolerated. We all get very passionate about Ingress but it is never ok to make threats against anyone.

It has been five months and I guess its time that I end my silence. I have always been very vocal about ingress and the direction of the community.  There was a time in the "old days" that the community was very quiet, and builds never happened. To get gear, you had to leave Oakland to get it or dirty farm to get the gear.  So I started putting builds together.  So, back in January, I got very outspoken about how I felt and it ruffled feathers.  At that point, I left the Oaklameda hangout as to not have this happen anymore.  I didnt want it to distract away from other things, and felt that Others could make decisions for them selves about how they felt about the direction of the community.  Then a few weeks later, I was no longer in the community, not a word was said to me why.  I just let it go at that point.  I figured, that's fine.  I can play, more or less lone wolf, and play with those that considered me a friend and wanted to play with me.  

We move a few months down the road, it is brought to my attention that I was being asked to leave a different community.  I asked the person why.  I was then advised that it was because I was accused of "dual accounting" for allegedly using my wife's account to deploy on my work portal.  I blew this off as nothing more than a joke.  When I told my wife about this, and she went on G+ to state how she though this was a bunch of crap and another reason she barely played anymore and at that point had actually uninstalled Ingress from her phone.  At this point, I am guessing, is where it was determined that I had to have been the one that used my wife's account to deploy.  The thing about it is, number one, Niantic had never banned, temporary or permanently.  In fact, no one had seen this happen.  Now, how did my wife's L8 resonator get on my work portal?  Why, she rode with me to work and deployed on it herself.  But but but, she didn't have Ingress installed on her phone.  Oh yeah, phones are not the only things you can install ingress on.  We have android tablets, too.  

The thing about the allegations, is the came from the Resistance. In my opinion, with as long as I had played, and how much i feel I have helped the Oakland community grow, that this would be blown off as nothing more than a joke, cause that's what it was, a joke.  The person that made the accusation, IMO, is someone that is just butt hurt over the fact that San Ramon was taken over by the enlightened and I never gave up, even when it was 1 on who knows how many Resistance would come through and destroy what I built.  Hell, I had even told this person a year prior when he asked who MsHackaportal was, i said that's my wife.  There have been numerous occasions where she has done just this.  There were times when she would ride with me to work, deploy, get on the bus and take Bart home before the boys would go to school. Or even other times, when the boys  would have no school on a day, she would ride with me to work, and just hang out for the day while I worked, have lunch with me, then ride home with me.  

So, there it is.  I will let the people decide now if I am a cheater or not.  I will continue to play Ingress the way I do now and the way I always have, My Way.  I will continue to do what ever I can to help the enlightened and Keep Oakland Green!!!

Sincerely,

DarthViper formerly Pr0wlerv1p

Paul, I'm thankful you spoke up. It is so true, and the same people who tried to hold you down brought my personal break up to light and used it against me for supporting you. It has been one of the most painful experiences in my life. I don't regret it, though. You still have my 100% support. <3

Perfect +NIA Ops +John Hanke +Brian Rose +Ingress 

I would like to know why an Ingress "Community Manager" blocked me?

I had a question about the recent controversy surrounding DS-14. I asked a question in the comments section of https://plus.google.com/+KrisPrice/posts/XQ3T9gDgLXb

I thought that with the positive interactions I had in the past with Joe that I could ask him.

I sent joe a Hangout asking him to please restore DS-14 and when it was restored would I receive my keys back to the portal.

I never received an answer from Joe instead I find today that I have been blocked.

So again why is a "Community Manager" blocking people from the community? Is this what the community should expect? When a question is asked to be blocked with out a reason.

Appeal Type: Takedown Appeals
Portal Title: Deep Space Station 14
Location: 35.425642,-116.887397
Reason for Appeal: Portal Takedown Appeal

A LOCATION WITH A COOL STORY, A PLACE IN HISTORY OR EDUCATIONAL VALUE

The Goldstone Observatory (or Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex) is run by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with a primary purpose of communication with space missions. 

The facility is one of three of its kind in the world, and has communicated with space missions since 1958; its place in history established, it is a US historic landmark.

Along with its vital role in space communications, the telescopes have been used for a wide variety of other scientific purposes -- mapping asteroids, observing high energy neutrino interactions, and a host of other applications. 

It is of educational value, since school groups are brought here with regularity on tour -- the last tour I went on to this facility had military personnel there for educational purposes, and the desired visit of my tour was blocked off by school children who were taking all the remaining tours this week.

A COOL PIECE OF ART OR UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE

The architecture of these telescopes is staggering; they are modern marvels of engineering. I could quote you the figures on the size and scale, but I included an image I shot there for you to judge for yourself. 

PUBLIC ACCESSIBILITY 

And now for an unfortunate political note. A Niantic community manager active in local Resistance field ops approached one of our agents in the Antelope Valley, asserting that this portal should be removed since public tours to it had been delayed indefinitely. 

We did our research: 

http://www.gdscc.nasa.gov/?page_id=35

Indicates tours will be re-opened June 30th. 

We additionally contacted the facility regarding tours, and they provided a direct response that tours would not be indefinitely closed, and they would resume June 30th.

Insofar as this and many other agents are aware, this portal meets all the criterion for public accessibility -- if limited tours are enough for removal, there are many hard portals currently being used as anchors that should be removed -- which we believe would be a disservice to both the field and the artifact game, much of which involves strategic and tactical control of these portals.

*

For these reasons, we ask that you please re-instate this portal.
