Unhappy Where did all the posters go?

This board used to have pretty good traffic and interesting conversations most days. It's almost a ghost town nowadays.

Warmer weather, snows gone, folks out riding maybe?

Bet if you start a thread on a controversial presidential candidate folks would be flocking to it.

Yeah, Kawdog was a big favorite around here... He was very well liked by most for his highly colorful character.

My vote is to keep him out.
He was full of ****. He said he had all this experience but had no idea what he was talking about.
Good riddance.

Plenty Of Warning

I can say I bailed him out on the UK site, he came perilously close to getting kicked off there, I tried to help him on this forum, several PM's
Just remember I was one of JD's identities, and was under the same dislike as JD while this was going on on the UK site.

What all the bring him back posters aren't aware of, is some of the clean ups that occurred by the Mods on his postings, long before anyone else had a chance to see or respond to them.

I too was surprised to see him banned, I am sure it was for good reason. The mods on this site are very relaxed compared to the UK site, their decision, not ours.

as for my input

I find since the new format, there are way too many advertising scripts, and spam from advertisers,which for me anyways, slows page loading, causes hangs and I find forums are difficult to use, not as well organized on lead in pages causing lack of interest in having to search for anything of note. It's called natural selection, a lot of sites eventually stop being used because the need/want of advertising revenue out weighs the usefulness to users. I used to come here a lot when the old format was used. Now rarely...........take note web masters... the writing is on the wall.. even if it's a digital wall!! lol even to post this, I had to click an advert under the guise of proving I'm a human at the bottom of the page (causing revenue for the site.. super tacky!!and you wonder why people don't come back)

Using Chrome or Firefox with an ad blocker removes all those nasty ads for you.
