So I've been away for a few months..

Post by 1Lemon »

Works been busy... Real busy and I haven't had time to keep up with the forums, now the season starts in less than a week (EXCITED) and things have settled down I'm back!

Question is, it looks very empty here, what's happened? It seems the ban hammer finally caught up with a few protagonists, was there any reason for the ban-o-cide?

Read the 'oh I see Cookie got banned' thread and you'll probably get the gist if it.

Yah I've done so. Maybe one day someone will feel confident to post a pro-Button comment now ;)

If you've read the thread you know what the issues were.

At this point, it doesn't matter what happened, the "protagonists" are you put it have built themselves and new home on the internet. That group were not happy here for the reasons in the 'oh I see Cookie got banned' thread and others on the forum were not happy with that group of members who choose to leave / got banned, so it looks like a split was the best solution for all.

Let's look forward to then 2015 season, so much more to talk about than actions of the past.

I'm so psyched for the 2015 season, and the forum seems a bit less.... Circular.

Let's go racing in....er.... circles.

Yeah, I've been in a similar boat. Work has been exceptionally busy (I'm actually away to work in Rwanda for just over a week on the 21st of this month), and I moved house in January with things just settling down now. Looking forward to finally getting a little down time to enjoy the season ahead!!
