    In my first week, of being a new member of this forum, I've been told
    ...my writing is unreadable
    ...my videos suck
    ...my motor is in a bad place
    ...my "jack shaft" idler is "an overweight and overwrought design"
    ...if this was some incredible build, I'd be a lot more willing to put up with the idiosyncratic style, but honestly, it's not.
    ...it's a "low powered", "art bike
    ...& then, I got banned for defending myself, my craftsmanship & my art in "my own thread"

    I am & have been a member of many forums for many years & I have never been bullied or have ever had a problem like this & I have never before, been banned from any forum...ever.

    IMO
    This Ted Dillard & Electro Flyers are "classic/textbook" examples of "Trolls" or some may refer this type of behavior as "Haters"

    They Trolled & Flamed & Spammed "my" motorcycle build thread until it was deemed "impossible to follow" & got it "closed"
    Perhaps you should learn how to accept suggestions and opinions about your posts and builds without resorting to "defending" yourself with
    name calling, threats, and general bad manners. Maybe then, you won't be banned and shut-down!

    My family is going through a painful time where one member has a rare, crippling brain disease that results in unpredictable, frustrating, and erratic behavior. Some of your behavior on this forum mirrors that family members behavior. Without being judgmental, and asking with as much patience as I can muster, do you have some condition that might explain your behavior on this forum? If so, I think we are all big enough here to accept that reality and deal with it the best we can. Converting motorcycles to EVs should be open to all people with the skills and desires to do so.
    But, people here are still not going to let you get away with crappy/unsafe designs and builds without comments! I would expect, and welcome, the same response from the people here(you included) for my designs and builds. You should too.

    Funny, I had to go back and read the original thread this guy is complaining about to record some of the insults and one threat in particular, and I honestly can't believe he was such a dick about some really fairly benign, and actually respectful discussion. I mean, I kept thinking, gosh, I must have been a total ass, and I sure am capable of that, I'd be the first to admit. But this time? I just kind of like, what the ****.

    Whatever.

    Actually, in a fun way, I kinda liked the poster. Would it have killed you(God, there's that phrase again) for me to share top billing with you?!!

    Ted, you call yourself a writer and published author? Top billing is side by side, not over and under! I'm really beginning to wonder about YOUR writing skills.

    I no longer respond to "trolls", I report their behavior, as per proper forum etiquette. PM sent.

    By the way, "Functional Artist" technically means an artist that is functional. Or, to put it another way, an artist that functions. Doesn't even really make sense.



    (Grammar. It's what I do.)

    Still, editing "old" posts?

    To continually insult me & try-n justify your actions. (pathetic)

    It's been fFlagged & reported. (again)
