I just come here to check out 919 stuff. I post a ton of stuff on another cycle site . Why would you want all your stuff removed if you posted them?
That "intellectual property stuff" made me smile. Total BS but funny. I guess you can always talk to yourself? I don't think I've ever had an issue here with the moderators?
Since a little before the turn of the century, I have been involved in web forums.
There seems to be some consistancy in how they evolve.
This one has become too much of a " for profit" forum, and that is fine.
The main issue, and all too common, a small clique rises to power and they dictate the demeanor of the forum. What was once a nice place with a wide variety of membership and discussion becomes, well, a snotty club of snobbery people.
Usually a core of 4-8 consistants with a glimmer of hope from time to time, a light at the end of the tunnel.
That light, for me, it has been snuffed out.
My pictures, I have deleted those I had attached here. Why allow people I can no longer relate with, or that disrespect me, continue to use them, especially for profit?
The same applies to written contributions.
The remaining pictures I have here, I wanted to edit my posts to remove them.
I can pull them from this forum another way, I did not want to do that, I nicely asked, look what that got me!
Why, why they want to keep them, or my posts, has yet to be explained to me in a rational manner.
If they want to keep the minority of my posts, the ones that may not be as constructive as the majority, well, that would be how they roll.
I wanted to nicely clean up what is mine and move on, the pricks in charge did not allow this, and have made a very dramatic big deal about it, as shown.
These people are not motorcyclist as I know them, nor are they they type of people I want to ride with, hang out with, or allow to profit from my posts.
The "cool" people that used to be here are long gone. There are a few left, and newbies with like mentalities will not waste much time here.
And that is OK, there are countless other forums.
When the idiots start repeating what I said, they admit basically they lost, they are wrong.
As mentioned by me first, read their comments above (unless the edit them, they can, we can't, they call it fair, I call it B-S).
Read their conments, see their true colors, and if you really have to ask me why I want to pull my content, I'll never be able to explain it to you.
Someday the light will go off and you'll know I'm right.
You probably already do.....
All I want to do is edit/remove my posts, simple.
Look what they turned that into.
Not me, THEM.
Have a great week
