    I was on another minor MAB forum, not the other big one. Anyways because I wouldn't intro myself all my posts were deleted and given a tongue lashing. Weird stuff going on there so I just deleted my account. Life's too short.

    I never understood the intro post requirement. Most my other forums (bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, etc) don't require an intro post.
    From a business perspective, I guess the intro post helps forum owners document the growth of the forum to advertisers.

    I know a forum that sounds an awful lot like that.

    It's run by a guy who had quite a presence right here back in the older days (pre-2010, for instance.)

    I've talked back and forth with him quite a bit over the years. And there's no doubt in my mind that he's a kindly soul. Who love bicycles, motorized bicycles and this sport, or hobby, or whatever. He's intelligent and has interesting things to say.

    But then he'll just blow sky high with little warning. And, truth to tell, I find it entertaining. (Though I kinda worry for him in the personal sense. Getting that angry that easily can't be good for you.)

    Some of his 'tirade' posts are classics. Wildly entertaining laugh-out-loud fun.

    I honestly do think well of him. But he is a bit of a maniac. And if he rubs you (or anyone) the wrong way, then, yes, it's best to just stay away. 'Cause it won't get any better.

    I've wondered whether or not to toss his online name, or the forum name, out. But I guess I shouldn't. That might be rude to both him and to this forum.

    I'm not going to disparage the site, it is what it is. I just won't go there anymore. Just like I don't go to the other big site anymore, been years.........not that I have a choice for that site, persona-non-grata = banned. I laugh now at it but back in the day those mods use to pee me off.

    If you're talking about augie, the guy is bi-polar (manic), it's a medical condition, you have to know someone with it to understand it.
