He asked to have his account deleted.

I wonder why, Harry was a good dude. I bought a tank from him for my old CR125. Maybe he's eliminating forums from his daily routine.

Ok, we are at a loss.

Cheers Harry!

That was like one of those, "suicide by cop." incidents. I hope we get Harry back soon

He questioned someone's post. Said post was deleted. He came back to ask why it was deleted.

Long story short, he was just fed up with how this place is ran and asked to have his account deleted.

And I agree, Harry is a good dude.

He took a 1 year-ish hiatus a couple of years back (I don't think he asked to have his account nuked, though). Hopefully he gets the itch to come back again at some point.

I saw where he just asked why a certain post was deleted , the answer was pretty much " because I wanted to delete it "........Harry said he thought that it was kinda dumb and didn't think there was anything wrong with the questions he asked. He got another kinda shitty reply , and so Harry pretty much " fuck it , I'm fed up with it ( called someone a few names ) and said delete my fucking account.

I know Harry. Talked on the phone quite a bit , and you couldn't ask for a cooler dude , or a better poster. Still kinda pissed off at this , and think maybe the higher ups around here get a little too trigger happy! I mentioned , that maybe even if someone is " asking for it "........how about just a cool off period. I could go on a big fucking rant right now , but I won't. I'm still pissed about getting sidelined for saying something.....
That had 46 likes.......and one fucking down vote! I don't blame Harry for getting fed up with it.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I believe he’s saying he took a break before, on his own, without deleting his account.

But what are we children? If somebody asks for something and that thing gets done, that’s on that person. I don’t think there’s anything stopping him from making an Extra Harry Backmon account if he wants to come back. Don’t say something if you don’t mean it, flat out.

“Delete my account!”
*deletes account*
“Why would you delete the account!?”

What about rubarb, that guy was a character. Did he get pissed off too?

Yeah I get that , and Harry said it was on him for even saying " delete my account". The point I'm trying to make here is , you get guys on these boards that have spent a lot of years here , and when they get the fucking door slammed in their face for something completely stupid , it tends to piss you off. Harry asked " Why? "......and in nicer words was pretty much told to fuck off.

Vital's big plus is the forum.......not one person can say that it isn't!! But when you just delete member's account , you indeed hurt your own cause. Vital exists because of the forum , and that exists because of the members........and without your members , there is no God damned forum!

I talk to him periodically. I can’t say enough good things about the guy. I’ll leave it at that.

I kinda get where you're going with that, but i cant agree 100%

We all know what we're here for, we all know the lines of right and wrong. Some people like to flirt with it, some people don't think there should be any lines whatsoever. But it's not the wild west, if people aren't happy with that they are welcome to leave, if they dont like being moderated then they can leave, which is what Harry appears to have done.

Everyone likes to bang on about freedom of speech, but there is freedom of choice too. If you dont like what's happening then anyone is free to choose to leave. Simple. Their shouldnt be a heirarchy where long term members are allowed to get away with breaking rules because they've been here a long time or some people say they're good guys. That's not how it works.

I should have put "that time" in my post, because I was talking about his hiatus a few years ago.

I agree, too. I'm not a fan when bad things happen to good people...particularly when it's their request.

Sucks when we lose good posters like Harry. Hopefully he returns.

|

2/12/2020 6:41 AM

Harry is a good Moto brother.

The higher ups drive away good posters with their holier than thou attitude. But leave all the dousgbag to trash this place. Doesn’t make sense. But been that way for awhile now. Quantity may be up. But quality has gone down the crappper.

or you could actually listen to your frustrated "customers" that are sick of being moderated in such a manner? Or at least tell people what rule they violated when you clip their posts/threads/accounts. Just a suggestion.

2/12/2020 6:52 AM

Harry is fine, he is here with me in Vital purgatory. We have pizza, good wi-fi for keeping up with Rocket League, and plenty of time to nap. Jabroni just got back from playing tennis with his lawyers, and Newmann is on the other side of the room arguing double displacement with the maid. Looks like he's going with an Infowars t-shirt and MAGA hat today, he says hello.

Hey, whoever sent this Drop-Bear guy here, can you please take him back?

But BRO, have you seen the numbers of his viewers in Cali? You know the moto-mecca where everyone panders to motocross and to not piss off anyone.

Harry is good people, long live the Sasquatch, may his chickens keep producing eggs and that sweet ass bike keep firing up.

Only 2 things that money can't buy, thats true love and homegrown tomatoes.

it's a game of whack-a-mole around here and has been for a long time, though it's getting almost comically bad. GuyB furiously shuts down any discussion that gets too close to his buddies (riders/teams) and then creates some stupid reason for clipping the thread like "Things were getting out of hand" or "Discussion turned too personal" and then puts his fingers in his ears when users bitch about it.

Rinse. Repeat.

My posts and/or this thread will get clipped as soon as he wakes up today.
