    Haven't heard a thing from OlyYam here for ages. He was always very helpful and knowledgeable.
    Regards
    Joe.

    This might explain his absence Joe?
    He had a massive sense of humour failure/girly meltdown months ago.
    He still visits us for a read of threads but he doesn't chip in anymore mate. You might need to go back one page from this link to see what started him off?..

    I agree that he was a very knowledgeable & avid contributor to this forum. However, I can't help noticing that the rows in the Brexit thread also stopped immediately upon his departure. There are still differences of opinion in that thread. But I've not seen any hissy fits since Oldyam bailed out.
    Jokes/wind-ups still happen in there but everyone else can & does laugh along.

    Quite glad I never put my nose around that particular door (the Brexit thread one that is). I am boycotting the news until it is either revoked or completed as I cannot stand the constant rubbish spouted by so called expert commentators or the way the news anchors get their kicks making everyone of out to be morons, even if they are indeed morons.

    Absolutely not Ade!

    His life has either been touched in some way by drug abuse? Which would explain his over the top reaction.
    Or he's just a ....?
    The thread didn't claim him. He committed thread suicide!

    I sent him 3 PM's when the dust had settled. In an attempt to patch things up. He ignored all 3 attempts.

    Well it's got to be OldYam's choice. I just thought that there were a few members on here that had problems with their bike and OldYam used to always chip in with very sensible answers and help. But people on here will jump at any thing to raise a laugh and it's just fun. I get it and sometimes give it out. But I am thick skinned and take it all in my stride or shrug it off. Bloody Brexit thread it will ruin us all. That's why I stay out of it. And I really don't care that much about it. I got my bikes my health and love the freedom. Thanks for sharing that. And OldYam perhaps if you do read this God Bless and ride safe.
    Joe.

    I can't agree with that Joe.
    The Brexit thread can not be blamed for a meltdown of that magnitude! For no good reason?
    The true reason for his ridiculous strop must be far more deep rooted.
    With any luck he's reading this thread. He's un-knotted his panties by now & he'll offer an explanation?
    I won't hold my breath though mate :rolleyes:

    I'm not glad he left the forum. But I'd delighted he left the Brexit thread. He's far too tightly wrapped for it.

    TBH Ade, it really rattles my cage when that thread is blamed for folk leaving the forum! :rolleyes:

    So many people seem to fail to see the bigger picture?

    If it bugs you or doesn't interest you, don't visit it. Problem instantly solved! It was created to keep all talk of Brexit in one easily avoided thread.
    I rarely agree with @PeteZ or @figwold in that thread but I don't fall out with them. And they don't fall out with me. In fact we often have a laugh. Myself & Figwold exchange PM's about subjects unconnected with Brexit. I consider him to be a friend. A friend with different views on Brexit.

    IMHO, anybody that blames that one thread for leaving the forum. Needs to take a long, hard inward look at themselves :rolleyes:

    IMO it was a good idea to keep the whole issue in 1 place so those that want to discuss the subject know where to go and those who don't can steer well clear as it allows the rest of the forum to carry on in the usual way. There's always going to be the odd flouncer on any forum so I wouldn't worry about it. The internet is a funny place at times and it's easy to over react or read things into posts that were not intended and go off on one as a result. At least on here a fair few of us have met which helps things no end. Keep calm and carry on;)
