Hey, "str8tlk",

This is a free forum, and people have lives outside of this forum. I agree that it can be very frustrating waiting on someone to reply to your post.

We appreciate your post and replies to people who are looking for answers, but please refrain from the negative comments about the forum.

Thank you

I was gone for a while...

Since then:

  • My dad died
  • My sister died too
  • The wife left
  • College
  • ????
  • and no profit


So slightly busy.

But now that the 240 has decided to act out again, you can all breathe easier, for I am back until the mods decide to ban me.

Any one remember or ever hear from Greek?

If you dislike the forum so much then leave. Based on your rant no one will miss you anyway. Mods get rid of spam when we see it. People answer questions when they have an answer. Would you want me to post an answer that was wrong just so you have something to read? Me thinks you would rather have good answers.

I work 5 days a week.
I do Public Address announcing for my local high school (boys & girls soccer, football & girls basketball).
I help coach the track team.
I serve as a staff person for our local Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Adjustment, Historic Preservation Commission.
I try to spend at least a little time with my wife.

Therefore excuse me if I don't get to the SPAM posts as fast as you would like. If you're really that unhappy then let me know and I can suspend your posting priviliges indefinitely.

You nailed it. There's only so much people can do. And the fact that this forum is still alive despite it being a free forum is already a miracle.

There is obviously still the search option... This searches all posts etc. theres also research. We all have to do it at some point!

I have also been away, travelled, toured, gigged, been arrested, had my fiance stolen from me... Lost the 740, had the 940 rear end compressed (to which i almost died) and now have a 240... You'll see me hanging around again

As always we all have lives etc...

All a bit sharp buttheres a point you know...

I suspect that if you had been driving any other vehicle the outcome may well have been worse though.
