Ditto - basically it's your forum Dam and we're all here by your actions. I have to say tho, the ex-member I was really glad to see the back of was SportsSpecial and please, don't ever let him back in. I know Det would say the same, and maybe Velton and a few others too.

This site is not set up to generate any revenue, I even keep a double entry cash book so that I can account for every penny that comes in or goes out.

No criticism implied or intended.
Just recognising that you're not in this for the money!
And that my input is intermittent. :roll:

Gus is a mate of mine but I don't know everything that has transpired between you two.

As Scotty said, the only poster who I was glad to see the back of was SportSpecial.

Yep Det - post those pics of your son's XS650

and Velt - I never knew whether SportsSpecial was going to be rational or not - had the impression it depended on how much he'd had to drink

Was it just drink with "Sport Special?"

I wondered whether it was a mental health / personality issue.

Think we could discuss that one Velt and still not get anywhere. The way he had mood swings and outbursts did suggest alcohol use/abuse to me. But then it could have been a personality issue that caused his behaviour. Basically though, I'm glad we no longer have to tread very carefully around him. His attacks on certain forum members were very personal and offensive and that sort of behaviour was not acceptable. I'm glad he was kicked out and I hope he's not let back in any time soon.

Agreed, Scotty.
I am equally glad that he has gone. 8-)

I have deactivated his account, if you are not happy with this let me know and I'll deactivate the forum.
Well I must ask why?... if it's not being too impertinent or naive.

It seems Dam is up to his neck in work, does anyone else know why Gus has been excluded? Oh never mind, the forum will never be the same without him.... I'll sithee.
