    Lloyd Smale?

    He hasn’t posted since February. Have I missed some news from/about him? I enjoyed his posts.

    He's active on GBOReloaded. Don't think he's avoiding here though.
    If it was easy, anybody could do it.

    If one bring up his profile it shows his last "activity" was 5-1-2022. doesnt mean he posted anything just that he logged on.

    I think he is starting to look at most forums like I do. Just in amusement.
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    I think he is a moderator over on GBO. They probably keep him busy over there.

    Read Lloyd's post on GBOReloaded (reply #4 in this thread). I don't think he will be back here.

    I'm sure the infraction was simply stating facts without a reference.

    I liked Lloyd. He was a straight up guy.

    I have had my hand slapped on this forum and most of the time it was warranted.

    Sorry to see him go for now. Hopefully, he cools down and comes back

    Lloyd is a strongly opinionated, head strong, honest person, and I doubt he'll be back.

    I didn't know Lloyd but liked what he had to say. I too doubt he will be back.

    We all are opinionated, but sometimes can get way over the top. I very well doubt that it was as simple as what he posted, and as he wasn't banned, he's just a bit butt hurt. Again normal reaction. Hopefully he'll settle down and come back. And yes, owner lives in Florida, and is as conservative as most of us.

    Not that it really makes a difference and I do not know if the sight owner is Canadian or not, but there are a lot of Canadians living in Florida.

    I think a lot of facts are missing from his post. From my time as a Moderator, these folks go out of their way to be fair and discuss almost everything as a group before anything is done. No personal vendettas, etc. Even I got a warning that was justified. Doesn't matter your post count, rules are rules.

    I predict this thread will be locked or even deleted before long.

    Correct. I was born / raised in the South and unless you are from the South or spent a lot of time down here I am probably more of a "Right Wing Redneck" than any of ya'll have ever or will ever encounter - I might even have a mullet....

    I like Lloyd a lot. He is very opinionated which we need as it tends to keep us on our toes and makes us think. I am very surprised he said I was Canadian even though he surely knows I am not considering he has purchased gear from me in the past and part of that conversation was a fair amount of discussion of his and my (our) careers with our very own US Government.

    Thank you Mr. Wolf for the honest opinion of our "behind the scenes".

    Lloyd has a great ego but he knows a lot. A good bit of it is true, but the rest is opinion. He indignantly reacts to opposing opinions as if they are personal attacks on him. I found that to be somewhat tiresome and I don't miss him. In fact, I had not noticed he was gone.
