My last post here

After having my latest run-in with the moderator/nannies here, I have decided to have my account deleted. I will still post at 'that other forum' (you know, the one that is for road bikes, and who don't mind when you tell somebody how foolish there idea is..).

Well, goodbye. I hope they don't ruin this site, but I must say that it doesn't look promising....

From what I can tell, your problems weren't about what you said, but more about how you said it.

I'll pass on saying something like, "don't let the door hit......", and instead hope that you fare better wherever you're headed and are happy there.

Called your bluff. Saved me having to watch it. Thanks!

I'm always deleting stuff; I don't do clutter. I always live to regret it . . .time moves on, and sometimes you can't retrieve those marvellous files you never thought you needed . . .
Same wi websites. You end up with loads of usernames when you re-register. . . and feel a little foolish for being so piquish . . .
Have fun! You gotta have fun.

Must have missed that one, and probably most previous ones too.
Only one that stands out in my mind is a peevish response in the line of "kids have no place in the public room" to someone's question about riding with children.
