some possibilities:

Peekin' out from under a stairway, calling a name that's lighter than air?
Bending down to give me a rainbow?
Tripping down the streets of the city smilin' at everybody he sees?
Reachin' out to capture a moment?

Being that it's Standard Time again and not even 1 PM Mountain, at work? Didn't change the alarm clock?

You never ask where's Rollfast at and I don't show for a few daze sometimes.

Whatever. It's Windy's day off.

Well you don't post half as much crazy/fun stuff as he does. Maybe step it up a bit and 'we' will miss you too?

Admittedly today i look to see when he last posted. Also i realized i dont check in unless i see a new thread by him.
The Foo is strong with this one.

The next thread in Foo should read: Where do you THINK windy is? I say he's out saving lives and kissing babies in preperation for the next Election.

Those are all good possibilities. I was going to ask the same thing too, although my guess is he's the one that the mothership came for.

I am rather waiting to see if a mod is going to sound off. One of his latter posts indicated that he was unable to post in Foo, which is where he hangs out.

He was talking about going off the gird before, maybe he did. Or maybe his powerbanks had the needed 1.2 gigawatts of power needed to send him back to the future.

Look at the "location" description. It says 'banned from foo'. Maybe a mod talked him into staying away for some reason(?) I never saw anything that would warrant that, but maybe something happened???

i have a thing for female vocalist

I don't see why he would be excluded. He's part of what makes foo foo, and his ongoing conversation with us was obviously important to him as well. I say bring him back.

I was wondering if he wrote something he shouldn't, but we never really know just what's he's meaning most of the time anyway - how could we really be certain if he wrote the wrong thing? And he doesn't seem the type to do that anyway.

"Location: baned from foo so for sure im not there ." ???
I'm guessing he wrote that himself. If he was banned he wouldn't have have been able to do that, now, would he? Windy, enjoy your time off, hope to hear from you soon!

Well I just messaged him so if he's anywhere in the forum maybe he'll see it. I just told him to drop by and say hi in here so we'll know he's OK

And if he's banned that I'd be bailing outa here.

Windchaser embodies the freedom of bicycling, at the foundation level. We all cling to the rebar that is anchored in his spirit. Ride on, Windy.

Well I messaged him and got an answer right back. He's fine and says hi to everybody.

He said he did get banned from Foo so I'm making good on my protest bailing. Unstable forum software and maybe a mod too but I wouldn't know which one.

I checked the banned user list and he's not there (and therefore no reason given for a ban).

Banned Users

Also it would be unusual to be banned from a single thread - permanently?

Would be nice to have him back.
