GWRRA Forum gone???

Postby 93aspy » Mon Dec 02, 2013 11:43 am



Hi guys,

First of all, apologies if this is the wrong place to post this but I didn't see any other area that this post would fit...

I read quite a few MC forums and recently tried to log in to the GWRRA forum and my login keeps bouncing back at me...

On a recent GWRRA poll here on this forum, I saw reference to the GWRRA forum being gone... Is this in fact the case??? I have not seen any other references to it being gone and on another forum a guy insists it is still there but try as I will, I can't get logged in there...

So - - - is that forum still there or is it gone now and if it is gone, does anyone know why it is gone???

Well, you can disregard the above question - the message boards are still there - my passwrod was changed by them because of a renewal they had just received and I had not yet received mail confirmation... However, in that recent GWRRA poll I took here there was mention of that forum going away - any insight on that from any one here???

It's not gone, but management decided to "take control" of the topics being discussed a while back, and deleted a ton of messages that contained material they didn't want on the forum. The forum more or less died at that point.

Ya the forum is still there but what gets discussed the most are word association games.


There is some discussion surrounding the change of WingDing in 2015 to the first weekend in Sept., location not announced.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

Well, I can understand some control as I moderated some forums a while back but too much censorship is indeed the fastest way to kill a forum... Unfortunately, it seems to be the way GWRRA is handling most issues these days :cry:
