Oh, I don't like the sound of THIS. AT ALL!

Van, tell me you're making a new account or something. Your posts are essential reading here.

Come on Van you have been here too long to let someone upset you like this. I know your are tougher than that. This is normally a pretty civil sight.

I add my hopes that this is a joke. Your posts and videos have been a huge part of my Ural experience.

If it’s not a joke please tell us who pi$$ed you off so bad you want to leave. I’m sure we would all agree to excommunicate them instead. Your knowledge and experience are very needed here.

That may be it. But if it was that simple I figured he’d add them to his “foe” list. If I understand it right that would block anything and everything by that person from showing up to Van. Right?
