Zingblade aka Zingpow

Hello, I noticed that Zingpows moniker is in itaalics, does this mean he has been banned?....I sent one of the moderators a PM but I believe he must be away for a bit as i haven't received a reply....if he has been banned that is a shame, personality plus describes him although sometimes over the top.....please advise out of interest ....thx

Sadly yes, Zing has locked horns with a Mod and came out second best. You're right, he was a colourful fellow but alas, could go too far.


Macca.

Re: Zingblade aka Zingpow

Pretty sure he had some "choice" words with a mod, even after being counciled. We shan't see him again.

Agreed though Ox, Zing was a no nonsense, quick wit, who liked to speak of his experiences. One of a few that had a good, eccentric articulation. I enjoyed hearing about how cold the weather was all the time in Michigan, made me feel good that I wasn't the only cold, wet, blustery guy wanting to ride

Knowing Zing, I doubt he would come back given the chance.

Re: Zingblade aka Zingpow

I came to his defence several times when he was becoming cantankerous and then he would level out.....and become affable, there have been more spirited conversations than I can remember with most being worked out without people being banned, too many entertaining people have moved on without being banned and now a forum fave getting axed...kinda stinks

Yup, there were a few on here that looked for fights but Zing wasn't one of them although he didn't take any abuse when it came his way..oh well..it's getting close to motorcycle hibernation time for this Canadian anyway......

He was annoying, obnoxious, sexist, chauvinistic, sarcastic, sometime squid, in today's politically correct world he was quite a breath of very entertaining fresh air.....

I'm okay with that as long as he was honest, truthful and not an A-hole. :-)

With all due respect, rules are rules and Zing stepped over the line. He was warned but he took the option to express himself in only the one way Zing knew.
