    I think I may need to take a break from this site, guys. Maybe see what the other Victory forum has to offer. Maybe check out other "general" motorcycle sites. Maybe just stick to the gun forums I frequent. I have no desire to continue my involvement in any forum in which the administrator repeatedly threatens to banish every member expressing an opinion he finds unpopular or critical.

    It was bad enough what happened to our good friend, Kurbs. But the administrator's continued threats and abuses are inappropriate and intolerable.

    I am going to miss my buds here very much. Maybe we cross paths again sometime. Maybe the administrator is fired or gets treatment and I can return. Who knows.

    The VMC redid their site. Looks better. Looks like traffic is picking up. I've been hanging out there some lately. Facebook is honestly taking most of the traffic now though.

    To my knowledge we have lost Kurbs by banishment and then at least 5 other members by their own choice just today.

    Im on the fence but could be easily persuaded to join yall elsewhere.

    Aw come on guys the admin will craw back into his hole where he ignored our reporting of the likes of law boy in a day or two. VVB will have to enlist another wing man to deal with the next one that comes along.

    I find this place easier to navigate than Facebook even with the useless search feature.

    I hit this site everyday.
    What did I miss?
    What happened to Kurbs?
    Was there a thread that got out of hand?

    I think I will take a hiatus from this site
    too - unless I need some urgent tech advice ... it is riding season again here and maybe about October when rhe leaves have turned and fallen I will be back to see if the self righteous and holier than thou is still haunting our threads

    Way to go Mcfly! You got my poll locked. It must be raining where he lives and that's why he has been in here so much.

    Most of us missed it. From what I know Kurbs and two others got a little heated and when Kurbs girl was dishonored he stepped up to defend her. Whatever was said (its all been deleted) earned Kurbs alone a permanent ban. Others that saw the exchange don't believe Kurbs should be punished alone. Since nothing happened to the two others involved many do not see the punishment as just.

    Now that many people are upset with Kurbs banishment almost every thread it is brought up in has been locked and some comments deleted.

    If I add Mcfly to the list of those that I know left on their own we are up to six today, not including Kurbs. We have all been told many times that we can all be banned and the forum will be fine. It turns out it is a self healing machine and doesn't need the long toothed Victory owners to help out the newer members.

    It seems we may be entering dark days where help will only be found by using the search feature as all the great members are done putting up with lope sided decisions and what many feel is poor service by staff.

    Come on guys. Enough is enough, the admin is only doing what he thinks is right. Let's move on to something else.

    OP, do you like poetry? It soothes the soul. Like this little poem, for instance...

    Frequently Reading Each & Every
    Kind & Unsullied Remark Brings Solace

    :rolleyes:

    Its just me and you ET. Everybody else was banned today. Admin came in like Oprah giving away cars. You get banned, and you get banned, and you get banned, yall all get banned.


    Good thing I didn't get banned. Making a poem out of my handle seems difficult.

    All I can says... Is,
    I still love my Vic. Check in here from time to time.
    Place should be about our passion for Vics, helping folks, and not personal attacks when folks don't agree about stupid things or ask questions..
    On either or any side of the coin. I will miss Kurbs... I will check in with him elsewhere and personally.
    I won't miss the constant BS from one of the previous top keyboard cowboys. I can finally unblock that dude.
    Just saying.

    Forums are like visiting someone's house. there are rules of decency when you go..in forums they are generally posted. If you are rude in someones house you dont get invited back. I didn't see the exchange so I can't make an assessment.

    I had a run in with a member years ago. I took it to the private message board with him and resolved it like adults. too many keyboard commandos out there that say things they would never say to someones face. I dont know if krubs was wrong or right but it's not my place to say. i didnt read it and ..I'm not in my house anyway

    We all have the right to stay or go.I am not sure how not coming here makes a difference to Krubs .. I frequent a couple victory sites and plan to hang here a little while longer. sorry to see the rest of you go.

    In case anyone is wondering, WW is talking about @Half_Crazy who has also gotten the 7 day ban hammer.
