    I miss Qwerty

    Yes he was contentious and a bully unfortunately, but he made those that responded to him think clearly about their positions as he would rip even a good one to shreds. I, after the first few encounters with him realized that i had to make the decisions and not him. He was a formidable entity(boy, talk about PC language). However, I do miss the old fart. I remember one time when I said I was a Libertarian, and he responded that he was a "Limitarian". For me such a repost is gold. Come back and haunt us folks on the forum. Though beware that littletommy is now the gatekeeper.

    Not to my knowledge. You better watch your step!

    Have you noticed how many new members are on our forum??? Querty was like a demon gate keeper shredding any new member that posted. I would much rather have a forum where new members are welcome.

    I understand that feeling, but I have always enjoyed a challenge. And, admittedly he was. But he helped me pick up my game quickly, because I don't like to lose or be stupid about things.

    Yes. He just couldn't let it go. Why, I have no idea because he didn't need to. I would suggest that others should also take that message to heart. Well now littletommy rules and the world is now inclusive of new members. However, we all have to earn our stripes.

    Tommy doesn't rule and isn't the gatekeeper either, haha. I know you guys are joking but, any of us could do the moderator job.

    I do like that the forum has gotten better and better over the last couple years. We do want it to be the best motorcycle forum out there, right?

    We want to be known as helpful and courteous and welcoming to all the new members; so if I might make a suggestion...

    When you see on the forum that a new member has registered; send them a little PM welcoming them and encouraging them to jump right in if they have questions or need help.

    This immediately makes someone feel welcome and those members are more likely to stick around and become helpful members themselves.

    I do this almost every day with new members and it does make a difference.

    YOU DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE littletommy! I still liked locking horns or sparring on the side lines with he whom we "Can not Name".
