Iím sure it was Ian Brown, no activity from him since May 2018, probably on a Camero forum somewhere cheesing everyone off and driving down the membership.
It was actually Lan, not Ian. I had introduced myself to him as ďone Ian to anotherĒ and I was later corrected that it was a lower case L, not an I. We had several entertaining PM conversations and although I didnít support or oppose his position on site issues, he seemed like a decent guy. He introduced me to the OTB&C (One Touch Ban & Clean), which I got a kick out of. I tossed around the idea of becoming a MOD for this site but, alas, was talked out of it. Itís hard to gauge a person via online chatter, so I thought better to just stay a member. I also believe there was some underlying computer tech savvyness that was required, and I didnít have it. This was back I think when ZingBlade got the axe, Ox was quite active, and Jazzy made a quick comeback (then a just as quick exit). I really canít explain what happened.
I find it sad when that all went down people got scarred by the .org. I still believe itís the number 1 internet site for any information on 92-99 900RRís, and the 29 and 54, and with my lifetime paid membership, I guess Iíll be around til the end........ which I hope I never see. With the core members here and the rebuild threads and resurrections itís still entertaining. I do dabble in Facebook now, but that platform has reached a level where you canít ask a question and believe anything anyone says. Iíve tried to help people there, but it does not come anywhere near the ďhomeĒ feeling that Fireblades gives me.
Now, if we can get some more newbs with carb projects and tiger builds weíll be all set for life
