    I think you did, in fact, follow the so called sniping.

    Delete all threads

    OK, moderators should just delete all bitchin and moaning threads, that way there would be so much less to have to plow thru here to get to the good stuff. Then maybe we could ban all the offending parties, etc.

    His facts don't hold water. There was a discussion on the YB board where someone (me actually) posted that he had heard membership was down 20%. I was corrected by the Treasurer that it was not down 20%.

    The YB formula is not for everyone and those that don't dig our chili get all bent that we have no interest in changing the receipe just for them.

    That and we don't put up with any of that Bitch Moan and Whine crap.

    You don't put up with any of that? Then what is some of that complaining I've seen on the YB forums?

    There was a new initiative last year to provided every new member with a $15.00 off one-time-only coupon
    to encourage attendance at club events.
    It seems like folks joined and maybe got as far as the Boxer Shorts or forum, but never actually got to
    a meeting, event, or ride to meet other members.
    Once folks got out on their bikes and to an actual event face-to-face, there was less keyboard courage.

    Does anyone have access to the MOA membership attrition rate? Since someone else raised the topic,
    I'd be curious to know...

    Riding and Events make the difference!

    iRene I agree completely with your response. Attendance and participation in events make the heart and soul of any group. "Keyboard Courage" is a funny term, kinda like Computer Commandos. Although I feel the "rally" events are perhaps over done and more pure riding events like the Tin Butt 500, Minuteman 1000, etc. are more my particular cup of tea. However, with a top case and journey bag I might be tempted to purchase a tent, camp stove, etc. Really the forum is just entertainment and exchange of ideas, notice of events, etc. while we are not riding.

    Bump

    I was looking for something else when I came across this old thread.
    Pending election
    Hodags return
    The names I don't see any more or very often
    The discussion in the thread
    all led to the bump.

    an interesting blast from the past and worth the read

    People come, people go, some stay.

    Some tell us 30 days in advance that they are leaving to increase their post count before they are gone.

    Some just fade away and one day you notice they are not longer posting.

    Some leave and everyone is happy to see them go.

    Some leave and everyone wishes they would come back.

    Some just leave.

    That's the way of any group and particularly of on line forums.

    It was interesting reading.

    No particular point the bump beyond the above comment.
