First topic message reminder :
My wife and I rode the Great Lakes Circle Tour this past week and a half. It was a little cold and windy at times. But riding all the way around the Lakes in the fall is a stark contrast and a beautiful ride, knowing that winter is setting in here shortly.
When I logged into the forum I read this:
The silverwing600 admin team has unanimously permanently banned Meldrew from being a member of this site. In explanation for our members, I have excerpted part of his ban................
This is very saddening that this has to happen. I don't know what the exact details are but I read back thru some of Mr. Meldrew's posts and from what I saw there was no real problem with his postings as far as forum rules. More like some sort of personality conflict between a couple admins and Mr. Meldrew, for whatever reason.
As our Lakes Circle Tour was our final tour for the season, this will be my final tour on this forum as well. I did not sign on here to watch admin power plays and some sort of personality conflict result in the banning of a fellow Silver Wing rider who's posts I found informative at times, witty at times, and who had obviously been here for quite some time.
This was important enough to me to say in a public post just like it was important enough for bigbird to feel it was necessary to make a public post about admins wielding the almighty Ban Hammer. When you do that to somebody at least have the common decency to keep it private. Reading thru other posts I notice where an admin immediately personally attacks a couple other posters as well when they make a post. Obviously, again some type of personality conflict or power play of some sort - and very unprofessional. I do not associate with that type of clientele, or a forum that is run that way.
I met some really great folks here. But it appears to me that the administration of the outfit could stand to act in a somewhat more professional manner.
