I don't know if anyone else knew about this. Vlad, (ElDiabloRed4Lyf) a long time member and poster of the boards died back in August. He was murdered.

I'm shocked... I don't even know what to say. I thought I should bring this to the attention of the rest of us that knew and loved the guy. Anyone who wants to leave their thoughts for him, go ahead here. I feel sort of bad for wondering where he was and now finding out he's dead...

RIP, man. You'll be missed.

He added me on facebook a while back... a story with his picture popped up on my news feed thing and I was wondering how he was doing, so I clicked, found a page of comments all with "RIP" and stuff...

Then found this article: http://www.nhregister.com/articles/2008/08...es/20092645.txt

I want all of my neighbors to obtain all of the resources that they need and want, so that they may one day be less inclined to shoot each other over petty squabbles, pride, and hood loyalty. And I understand that Im going to keep striving towards this, until one night when an unidentified assailant pulls up and murks off on me, for whatever reason, he wrote on his Facebook page. And I wont have any regrets towards it, because as long as Im pursuing my agenda, it doesnt matter when it happens, because Ill have the personal gratification of knowing that Ive led a fulfilling life."

And I wouldnt even hate the guy for doing it ... Id finally find solace in death. All Id want is for my friends to (retaliate), if youd find out who.

Wow, that's pretty surreal. I guess the only consolation is that he died doing what he stood for. Such a waste of a life though.

I want to post a tribute on the front page, but I don't know what to say.

Surreal. That's the word I was looking for... I was just saying to Albino, it's weird how it affects you irl, someone dying online.. when someone leaves the forums they're just leaving to life their life, but murdered for weed... what the fuck?
Passionate Homo Sapiens Ingester
Jesus Christ, he organised a drug deal then tried to resist a guy with a gun? Just the Vlad I knew...

RIP, but I can't say I didn't see it coming.

[Edit] Never mind. Fucking idiot. That's the worst possible way to go about it, and the way that gets him most profit. Great socialism right there.
DiO
I'm dumbfounded. Very shocking. RIP and my condolences for the family.

Sheeit, R.I.P dude

Was wondering why he left, he said that he will come back but didn't. Too Bad it was involved with drugs, sounded a bit of an idiot though to stand up to a guy with a gun.

RIP dude though

Heh... I once got him a subscription to a gay porn magazine. RIP Vlad.

'Vlad is gone if you were here during his time here you'll know he was a forum legend'

I saw his posts back when i was a mere lurker they made me laugh to say the least.

Money problems? Who knows why he did it.
But being a law student and all he was drug dealing kinda hipocritical.

A little. I'm sure there are tons of lawyers that are crackheads and/or potheads. PS: *hypocritical
Qdeathstar
Man.. that sucks. He was pretty smart, too bad he had to die in such a dumb way.

He was they guy who started the "red" sticker fad on GTA-sanandreas.com and wrote that whole "red manifesto" or whatever.


I think since he died back in august it's a bit late to put stuff up on the front page about it, but i'd say if you wanted to remember him the best way is to put his sticker on



I couldn't find his manifesto, but i remember making a "blu manifesto" to joke him.... meh.

Some topics to read..

Wow. This is unbelievable.

I remember Vlad with his witty shananigins and clever mind. He was a unique individual, and surely a forum legend. You'll be missed, Red.

On March, 24, 1987, in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev, I graced the earth with my presence and shit. I moved to Gun Wavin' New Haven, The CuT, when I was 7 and have been living in the same shitty apartment in Westville ever since. I went to HSC (Home of Stupid Children), downtown, which is a secluded factory-turned-resort for all sorts of pariahs from the actual world that has a "fugtarded" population far above the national average, which is saying a lot. Now I've moved on to the blandness, boredom, stress, and the occasional excitement and shit at the University of Connecticut. I guess I'm a pretty intelligent (book-smart, at least) and hard-working person. Although, as any of my friends can attest, I act like a total jackass sometimes. My life's str8, how bout yours? I'm currently Umenploy'd and looking for work. It gets really depressing going from employment to broke-assness in a short span of time. Fucking sucks not having any income coming in. But I'm getting by on what I got, pretty fine. I think I'm a pretty chill (see also "sane") person and I either don't let shit get to me or I handle it, quickly. I'm also pretty funny, at times. My life's coming together just how I want it to, at the moment, and I don't really have any problems. I'm making amazing progress and shit. I'm also pretty big into politics and philosophy, but I don't often bring that into my social life. I'm a Leftist and anti-corporatist, however, I'm a firm believer in the American values of individualism, consumerism, and entrepreneurship. Being yourself, buying shit, and hustlin'. And if you couldn't tell, my favorite color is red. If you wanna talk, hit me up on AIM- ElDiablo22v or MSN- ElDiabloRedE2Die@yahoo.com


Ironic though, he was from "Gun Wavin New Haven"....

So yeah man, RIP
mceggy
Oh man, RIP Vlad. Like Ast said it's pretty surreal and it has affected me hearing it. One of the big personalities that brought me back here for years, I'll forever remember the guy in his Red bandanna.

I never knew the guy. I left on my two-year vacation when he first joined and then when I got back I faintly remember him and Bain fading away.

RIP, was a good man, etc.

Fuck man, I used to conversate with him over AIM on all kinds of stuff (politically related or not...)

Plus, I was the one who made that RED graphic when I still had Paint Shop Pro.

RIP Vlad, may you take down the kapital swine in heaven with your socialist grace. sad.gif
Kuwong
I remember him. RIP Vlad. Can't believe he was shot by people wanting to steal weed. It's not a drug you'd expect them to kill for. I guess he knew the risks in what he did, though standing up to them was somewhat moronic.
I hope his killers will get brought to some level of justice.

Seems silly, some weed for someones life.. its not worth it but i guess some people dont realise that =/

The dope game is no joke, it's treacherous and deceitful. R.I.P. Vlad. Condolences to his family and friends. I am sorry for the cloud of "suspicion" that has contaminated his family's ability and right to grieve for their loss with some dignity and respect. He was intelligent, idealistic, funny, he was a real attribute to humanity.

I was talking to Compton G and he said he was talking to Vlad on AIM just the other day. That and he doesn't think our Vlad's last name was Voinov. We sure this is our Vlad?

So is him

If social engineering has taught as anything, it is to not try and take stuff from people with guns...

To be honest it is a pretty shitty gamble, if give it to him or have a plan so the gun isn't going to be pointing towards you if he shoots.
DiO
Ah, perhaps he said that cause when I told him he was dead he didn't believe me. Then I assured him I wasn't kidding and shock took over.

OH FUCK IT'S HIM. How credible is that news? FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
By saying I've talked to him I meant that he was online but no one is answering.

I hate the fucking world we live in. I hate people. Myself, and so on. Everything is nothing. Nothing is what we do......


If there is an afterlife, good luck to him. I hope he has it better there.
