Where's Craig

Noticed Craig's been absent for a while. Was he banned or what?

I believe there were some disagreements over moderation, he left and asked that his information be removed.

^^ His issues were not with moderation..

He simply got tired of dialogue seeming to always result in name calling, and some folks seeming inablity to remain civil.


Thats my storey, and I'm sticking to it.

He did leave and asked to all his content removed.

I'm sorry he left though he did initiate much that he complained about.

It seems there were other, perhaps personal concerns as well. That's conjecture and inference, not first-hand knowledge.

Shame he's gone as a result of OD - he helped out quite a bit on the technical forums.

I liked the man. I wish he had stay. I wish he would come back.

From some of his comments I got the sense it was more than OD.

I could be wrong.

I certainly hope not! But now we'll never know...

Oh yes thinking about it there was that buying a nearly new engine and getting the dealer to fit it thread that got some people a bit hot under the collar...

Oh well.

Yep. I'd like him back. If anybody can contact him I suggest you tell him that.
