Well....to each his own. All I can say in response to Vintner is you're not there, you're here. This forum has existed for a long time the way you see it. It has been one of the most popular and trafficked maxi-scooter themed sites for quite some time now. Just like people in one state or country tire of hearing new move-ins say "Well back where I came from, they did this....", such could be applied to this case. BUSA is a fantastic forum, and we like it just the way it is, thank you.
And all the exceptional times you say it is necessary to need to know info to help you on bike related issues, could pile up to where a full profile would have helped many fill those needs.
By your comment on only coming by when you need something, its seems hard to believe a moderator like yourself helps there but elsewhere you seem to be someone who operates on the principle of taking what you can and not really caring to contribute or help others or even just socialize. Then you snively compare those of us long timers who come here to socialize as "living here". And we're the rude ones?????
And as to nastiness, this forum is quite polite compared to other maxi-scooter themed ones I have been on. The only time I have seen real nastiness outside of one or two perpetual grumps (or a certain someone being defensive about BUSA being attacked, LOL) has been in the Back Alley or Tavern sections. By their very nature, they are open to topics of conversation that involve highly emotionally charged issues: politics, religion, whose nation is better, etc..
