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?

So much discussion and great posts have been lost. i hope it is ok to post this link Ben, if not let me know and i will remove it.

It's fine with me.

This bums me out. It's one thing to loose a member. It's quite another to loose content that many of us have spent time on. Again. I'm at a loose as to what to say about this. I can understand the option of being able to delete one's own contributions to a forum. Just wish there was a way to save everyone else's. Even if the discussion is hard to follow at times. It would still be there. And if necessary others could fill in the holes as needed. 

I hear you man... it is a serious shortcoming of the Ning platform. Same thing on Facebook though... if one person starts a thread in a group or on a page, and other people join in and comment and contribute... if the original author deletes the post, everything is gone.

I for one will miss the ornerey old coot.
He may not always have been on topic but he generally gave me a chuckle.
I hope he finds what he is looking for.

fair but accurate..ha ha

me too. didnt always see eye to eye but agreed to disagree. 

sorry I'm late to the party...

Ben I'm 100% behind and supportive of your decision. Though I didn't see the post in question, I have full faith that the appropriate forum moderator action was taken and justified.    We are a diverse and inclusive phyllium and the social lubrication of politeness, consideration and civility are essential to a beneficial community here.

and I still have all my notes and diagrams from the induction pickup designs (yay!)
