it appears that Wayfinder has deleted his account. 

he doesnt show in the members section and EVERY post and thread he started seems to be missing.

ALL OF THE INDUCTION pickup thread is gone, not just his postsbut all post in any thread he started.

so this begs the question what happened?

Hi all, I agree. Thanks to Ben for keeping things focussed on what we come here and gear. I don't know what was posted and deleted, but if it Was on guitars and gear it would still be here.
Cheers Taff

Thank you, Taffy.

I saw the post in question and think you handled it appropriately Ben.  It's a shame all the way around, but we can recreate the important info and carry on...

I appreciate that, Turtlehead. Thank you.

Even though I have zero interest in induction pickups or negativity of any kind it bothers me that some folks find things to quibble about on a site like this. I missed the post that prompted this but I support your decision Ben, and I know the person in question has been the focus of problems in the past even though he's always been a friend to me. Still, keeping things positive and helpful is extremely important when it comes to welcoming new folks eager to learn. Let's keep things going in a direction that welcomes and encourages rather than argues and disparages. My tongue in cheek assessment is that pickups and amps lead to argument and acoustic instruments lead to harmony!

Thank you Jim. Harmony is the goal!

I just want to say thank you for watching over us Ben ..,and this is an awesome site..,makes us feel like we are one big family..,,.,."we are all in this together".,.,

You are right Jerry, we really are all in it together. Thank you for the nice note.
