You can start another one here if you want.  Maybe that one will be more civil than the first.

It had a dusting of rudeness, but it was recovering.
No reason to lock it, but it is a reason to give people suspensions like normal forums.
Its a wonder why this forum has lost its luster lately.

I had luster once. The doc gave me a cream for it.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

I'm sure he will check in from time to time.  8)

As far as the comment, I found it quite funny. But I'm not surprised the thread got locked.

That thread got locked too fast, IMO. IIRC Jay posted his thoughts to another member about that member's know-it-all, abrasive posts, and another member agreed. I thought it was good that said member got to read what a couple members think about his posts. I don't think it got ugly, just honest. Must we all get along 100% of the time?

Could un-lock it and state "OK, that's enough - Thread lock threat in effect." ... cuz at this point you've canned the exit thread of one of this forum's most flamboyant members. Of course I'm referring to his flamboyant bike  :P

I was looking forward to seeing Jay's mods to his new bike. I might have to find him on a KTM forum just to watch the fun.

Sorry to see you go, but I understand (why someone would leave a forum) as I pretty much have given up on the other forum for different reasons. At least until some changes are made over there.
I disagree with you about a thread lock vs suspension. If I say something that a mod doesn't like I would rather have the thread locked than get suspended. To suspend Jay instead of locking the thread would (IMO) pretty much guarantee that he'd never check back in with us, most of us hope he does check back in from time to time. (and you as well MrP'). No forum is perfect for everyone, here I can go back and delete/modify my very first post and I pay nothing, over there my posts have become the property of COG even though I pay dues. Here there are no favorites (that I can detect based on moderator actions, although I'm sure there are favorites as mods are human) and the thread was not locked because the mod likes the west Texas guy more than the Oregon guy, but rather because of name calling.
(at least I think that is why it was locked, the piling on {myself included} may have helped, but there was some pressure build up and Jay's remarks opened the valve that some of us wanted to open but didn't. V'Jim just closed it before it became a flood.)

DITTO, post some links when you find them.

Don't look now but you might want to get that 'script refilled ASAP.

THIS, there should have been a "cool it" warning.
