Somehow the first version of this got deleted.... This is the post that Cherie was quoting a few back...
YOU did not run C&C off. Repeat, it was not you. Hell, maybe they still are planning on posting.
Hey - no one ran us off! Egads!
We are still here tapping into the wisdom of the forums, and sharing our own in the areas where we are relative experts.
And I think everyone benefits from shared experiences - both good and bad.
But the sad thing is - we do know several people who have been run off the boards, or at least turned into lurkers. Some of them have even contacted us to offer advice, and to let us know that they don't bother to post anymore because of some of the negativity and second-guess that goes on.
It is a problem - and we all can probably do better in communicating, and chilling out.
But overall, we LOVE the bus community. We love coming to rallies, and meeting bus folks as we travel.
PS: The one thing that DOES really bother us is how there have been so many mentions lately of how our "high profile" sharing of our current issues is "going to drive people away" from buying buses, or lower resale values. This is ridiculous - there are many people who are now bus nuts shopping for or owning buses because of us, who would have never even considered the option otherwise. Sharing does not drive people off! Egads!
