    Wow! El Immigrante, I share your condolences.

    But first, Mike, he has fomented an environment that fostered resentment of this site because more fish didn't swim toward him.
    Several goons hung around to fertilize that sentiment on this very site. I'll admit, I passed the cup to partake to others in the past, because they wanted a more germinated site, this became herbaceous and then dormant.

    What REALLY soured me was that he began living the "My kingdom come, my will be done, on earth, I haven't got time for heaven(GOD), he lost his first love. I've been there done that, don't condemn him! WAKE UP MIKIE!!!!!

    Anyways, E,I, we've ridden before in the San Gabes, with Gabe. You had a asthma attack and weren't prepared for it and probably don't care for me to this day!
    But I would be willing to do a high country ride with you and friends again, if you dare.

    Steve

    Hey Steve! Hope all is well! I quite MTBing and got into crossfit. I started competing and during a comp, got injured and I was down for a year. I got fat and starting drinking. Last year, thanks to the help of a friend, I jumped back on the bike and now I'm back- stronger and faster than ever.

    What? In the world are you people talking about?

    Can I clear up a few things here:

    @El Immigrante , you were initially banned for exploding as a jack ass on a new members post towards UPSed. You could have shown some restraint or maturity and PM'ed him and worked it out. You chose poorly. We talked extensively about it in a text and I asked you to be the bigger man and apologize to everyone to include UPSed and you refused. Since imtbtrails has a zero jackwad policy and you refused to step up, the ban continued and still does to this day.

    Then you tried to join as some chick stating you lived in Malibu, but the software is smarter then that. It just goes to show you have no character or integrity and rather choose to bag on me when you were the problem.
    You have the power to change that even still.

    And if Ed would heve reciprocated your publically dropping the "F" Bomb and threats and followed up your desire to meet somewhere to exchange words and most likely punches... he too would have been banned. Yet, he immediately apologized to everyone. You made your bed and are too arrogant to step above it. No sir, I am not full of myself and I have not let imtbtrails go to my head, I just keep standards on imtbtrails, at least I try.

    @portlypeddler , I have no idea what you are talking about. The Lord Jesus Christ is my first and only love. Period. If you got any other impression of me, then I humbly ask for your forgiveness. I'm just trying to build a mountain bike forum in a falling world. If you have other issues with me, PM me and let's talk. I want to be right with you. I'm certainly not perfect by any means. But most likely you will have to contact me on imtbtrails. I stop by here like once every 6 months and try to remember my password...;)

    And speaking of Mountain Bike Forums...
    SoCal Trail Riders was the first Forum I have ever joined...
    I made a lot of friends here. When it caved in the first time, I panicked! When it caved the second time, I got frustrated, when it caved the third and big time, I offered to fix it for free, I offered to buy it, I tried so many times to contact the owner and help make it better.... but nothing. So then, I just started building my own site. I have spent "hundreds" of hours hand building then buying software (the same as here) in attempt to make a great site.

    Everyone started flocking from here to imtbtrails... I was stoked! We had a home again. But then STR rebuilt with xenforo and all the core STR abandoned imtbtrails and came back. Yeah... I was kinda hurt, but oh well.

    But now look at you. You are barely hanging on and bagging on me and imtbtrails. What is wrong with you!? You are doing nothing to build it back up. Is that my fault? Am I supposed to close imtbtrails because you are back open for business?

    @trailninja , I'm not sure what your role is here. Are you an Admin? You really no nothing about me. I just broke my wrist, so I'm out of the riding picture for a while, but when I'm back online, let's go for a ride and get to know each other. Owning and moderating a Forum is a full time, often thankless job. Fortunately, the folks at imtbtrails seem to really appreciate me as family. I don't allow drama at my site, not like this site has practically promoted in the past. So yes, folks come and they go, like at all sites. I think you will find I'm a pretty friendly and giving guy.

    Orange County is big enough for multiple mountain bike Forums. I was born in Orange, before it was called The City of Orange, I don't live anywhere near OC. But yet your folks joined imtbtrails, that's not my fault.

    If I have offended STR... I am sincerely sorry and I apologize. I mean that.
    Now get over yourself, over me, and over imtbtrails. Build your site... or don't.:)

    I'm surprised this place is still around. In a way, I'm glad it is.
