Don't take the internets so seriously.

Shouldn't be drunk posting at midnight.

Don't be such an attention whore.

Respect the owner of this site.

... but of course, I wouldn't actually do that.

Enchanter if you are asking barf if you should stay to gather opinions, then despite occasionally disagreeing with your strictness, I think you are a great addition to barf and you should stay.

If you are asking because you are truly unsure if you want to be here, then you should go.

I heard the barf server room is now occupied by Russian forces. Budman is currently putting together some sanctions to respond to Putin.
I appreciate your comment. It wasn't my intent to "ask barf", but it is an interesting, yeah, go ahead and give me your opinions. Opinions of others can be interesting and inspiring.

Have at it guys. Stay? Go? Shit, I'll put up a poll. It's a risky act. The owner may take poll into consideration and take action.

Your poll is confusing... you are asking us which question you should ask? but seriously, while I may disagree with how you've handled some things, your contributions to the forum are appreciated.

This. Although I already answered your poll, I think you should clarify WHY you are asking.

Do YOU want to be here is the better question. That should give you the answer of whether or not it is worth it to you to put up with whatever is making you question it.

My outside take on your modship (simply from observation). You adhere to the strict terms of the TOS and believe that exceptions to it only lead to chaos. Which occasionally they do. I will say you have been more even keeled in the recent past.

I understand the position actually. I don't always agree and occasionally with a family exceptions need to be made. That however leads to calls of favoritism. You can't really win. Whatever your take you are bound to make both friends and enemies.

That said, I am glad your voice is there, and I am glad that others are there as well. That dichotomy which I am sure leads to some arguments... ultimately works.

As for your contributions to barf outside of your role as a moderator. They are indeed valuable and appreciated.
Hunger is the best seasoning.

Who do you see? Who do do you watch? Which is your flock? Do you watch at a distance from the side you have chosen? Whose answers serve you best? Who'll save you from confusion? Who will leave you an exit and a comfortable cover? Who will take you oh so near the edge, but never drop you over?

I honestly thought this was about something in your professional life, Tim. I answered the poll accordingly before coming back to read the recent posts. I know that I poke fun at you now and then, but I really like your mod style. Your "all business" persona makes it that much more hilarious when you bust the occasional joke. If you do go, BARF will surely be worse for it. I am going to refrain from further comment, as I have absolutely no idea what's going on.

Tim... you are an incredible asset to this forum, and to the motorcycling community. While you may be strict, sometimes that's really needed around here. I hope you stay.
I'm also hoping to hell that BARF isn't being sold... if it changes, and becomes more like some of the other motorcycle forums I've visited, I expect my participation here will be what it is there...
Special Thanks to MOTOWRX & Oxymoron Photography & Dave Moss Tuning & SeriousRnD for sponsoring my racing and for taking such good care of me!!!

if it's about BARF , definitely stay, I don't think we can take more mods missing

if it's about personal/work stuff, go or something.

now .. is there a contradiction between "it was definitely made clear" and "*they* are sending an email".
