He is active on YouTube - so we know he is not dead

I hope this is all a big misunderstanding. I hate to see anyone have issues. Just from his posts, pictures, and activities he didn't seem like he was hurting for money... I thought he was an active track person at one point so many would know him personally. To see how this turns out.

Wow, so strange. Ross seems to be an upstanding member of this forum (in addition to being a moderator). Seems very out-of-character for him. Makes me think something terrible happened...

Thinking of K-swapping? Here's an idea of the cost involved.

2006 LOTUS EXIGE (ASPEN WHITE) Honda K24A2 + MPx90 supercharger. 322whp/271lb-ft @13psi. Build thread here.
1994 AUTOZAM AZ-1 MAZDASPEED Japanese Super Kei!
2014 FIAT 500e Hydroelectric powered EV daily driver.
2007 SUZUKI SV650 Track bike.

From what we can tell he is physically ok, but it looks like he's plugged into VR and has abandoned the real world. Maybe the first case of a new type of harmful addiction. We are still trying to contact him through various channels.

Hi

This does sound like Ross might need to lose moderator status IMHO

Yeah, no kidding. This is really an intriguing mystery. He seemed like such a stand-up guy. I wanna know what the deal is now...

We moved on that fairly quickly after things came to light, and he is no longer a mod.

Even though we're all just regular guys, because of our position we wanted to send an unambiguous message, that no one is exempt from forum expectations.
JWA, exlondoner and sleekgt like this.

That.... what a surprisingly difficult sentence to read. It sorta just scrambled by pattern recognition software a little bit. Well done.
