Ray!

I haven't gone anywhere...

Recommended Posts

...I'm simply keeping the majority happy and so I'm only going to post on topics relevant to 4WDs as requested (if I have anything meaningful to contribute that is).

You wanted a change, now you have it.

Cheers

Ray

Congrats people - you have managed to get rid of one of the very few knowledgeable people here willing to write up detailed info for us all.

You could have just ignored the non relevant posts.

Running a forum is like trying to control a kindergarten class.

Maybe so, but It's Ray who's doing the kindergarten dummy spit.

Yes he knows a lot about Patrols, and is willing to share.

But it's tiresome to click on View New Content and see 90% of the new threads are Ray whinging about his hated Labour Gov't, or throwing links from the daily newspapers mainly covering more political crap.

I have in the past challenged him directly to join the Liberal Party so he can really contribute to ending Labour and fixing all the ills he sees, but he declined this suggestion. Kind of "put up or shut up" :)

And you seriously think that that wouldn't have lead to an escalation in his sh*t stirring behaviour?

Ignoring? Why? He shouldn't start sh*t he"s not willing to argue!

As a heap of members said (p*ssing in his pocket) he does post up great info, but that doesn't mitigate an unjustified dummy spit.

If running a forum is like running a kindy class, you'd better deal with the older kid (who should KNOW BETTER) that's holding his breath in the corner!!

Geeze guys.. It's a forum.. You choose what you read.. His threads are what keep things ticking over.. If you don't like it, don't open it...

I quite like reading rays threads. Well most of them, if a topic doesn't interest me, I just move past it.. It's not to hard to roll the mouse wheel one more click...

He's making up for his absence from here by going all out on the other one. Oh, wait - I'm permabanned from there, so I don't really know how I know that. :) Let me guess - circular arguments introducing new and irrelevant "facts according to Ray!" at every post, and resorting to insults when pinned to the wall.

Weird, though - he threw out his banana on the other forum a few months ago, and came here to new, greener pastures.

Seems he got stuck in the fence and went back?

I didn't see what got up his nose here - did someone say nasty things to him?

Actually no, some of us just dared to disagree and perhaps he's got a lot on his plate lately. He himself had put up the challenge after being called on some of his questionable POV. I don't really understand his need to "push the envelope" but no one had anything nasty to say to him.

Cheers

Sorry Admin but I think you are putting the blame in the wrong place.

You yourself said you didn't like looking through a string of news items in the new content. ( or words to that effect).

I never wanted Ray to go but his postings to me at least were becoming increasingly aggro and commensurately boring.

If I want to read the news, I'll go to a news site. It seems others here felt the same way.

I don't mind discussing relevant issues but 4-5 a day is a bit much for me.

Ray has brought into a lot bigger arguments and bunfights than anything that was said here and looks like he is continuing to do so. As such I don't see he was in anyway treated unfairly or unduly harshly. Ray was the one that wanted to make an issue of should he stay or go and it seems he wasn't happy with the result of the feedback he himself invited.

You can't put blame on other people for that.

It was also clear ( and by his own admission) that he was trying to be controversial and by virtue incite argument. He got that and did not appear to take other's POV that were in contrast to his own very well.

I have to say I do think his behaviour is rather childish in this matter though. No one is indispensable and while his knowledge may be missed, I'm afraid the majority of his cut and paste posts won't. They also added little to the value of the forum IMHO unlike as I pointed out his own info which was totally different.

I also got the impression he may have been a bit bored, frustrated, had too much time on his hands or suffering cabin fever and looking to vent.

He went back to the cesspit, perhaps he will also forgive and feel better and come back here to share his valuable and worthwhile knowledge.

Hmm, seems like a real adult response - you bash a forum member because he bashed another forum member, and then follow up with puerile insults.

Why do you think you are entitled to act this way, and someone else isn't?

Oh don't be so PATHETIC!

So you're saying that it's ok for Ray! to have a hissy fit and whine in the corner 'cos some people call him on his political beliefs?

Yes, he does make great tech contributions, I read them too! But you can't seriously say that everyone has to let him have his blatantly political rants unanswered and when he packs up his toys and storms off that it's the fault of those who called him on his positions!?

Are you really SERIOUS? FAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRKK!! REALLY!! I hope you never get into politics or run anything more than the fryers in Macca's!!!!

I really don't get what the big deal is, if u don't like a post or it's contents just don't comment on it , it's that simple! Concentrate on the positive posts people make and ignore the bad , the rest will sort itself out. ( common sense isn't so common )

I cant believe I just wasted 10 minutes (slow reader) reading this thread. Why did you guys even bother bickering? Its rare that any of you will ever see anything on the net that affects your life enough to make you upset. We all post crap at times, so why not have a whinge and try and upset eachother.....DUH. Grow up guys.

Now I just wasted 10 minutes replying FFS. I'm going to get some paint and match my bonnet scoop to my ute. Much more productive.

I'm here, because I don't like it "there".

It's not a case of "dont like it, don't read it". There's more to it than that.

What sort of image do we want to have as a 4wd community?

A quick read of some 4wd forums in the chit chat sections doesn't paint a nice picture of us.

Anyway, better post in the introductions section.
