Ok,

I never get in on these rants where people are complaining about “Rich hurt my feelings,” but there’s been so many of them, I thought I might say something in his defense (not that he needs me to defend him).

I’ve never seen a guy take as much abuse on a board and still offer help to those that ask. It’s like he has a target on his head saying “Flame me I deserve it” or something!? :| If he catches you B.S-ing your way through something, he’ll point it out. Maybe not the sugar coated way that you might like, but if it hurt your feelings, then maybe you should grow some hair, or ask your self “Do I REALLY know what I’m talking about? Would I try this on my bike?” Ask yourself this before you give advice or try to claim your “expertness” on a subject. I’ve never met Rich, but I have asked him a few questions. He knows his stuff and has tried almost any weird idea you can come up with. If he hasn’t tried it, he has enough understanding of motorcycles to give you a fact based opinion about it. His answers are short, to the point, and if he doesn’t know, he’ll say it. How often do you really run into someone on the internet like that? I mean come on, it's pretty rare.

The other thing about it is GROW UP and quit wasting time. :silly: There are quite a few people on this board that have realized what an asset he is. You can whine and cry all you want about him, but all you’re going to get is a pounding from the people that know him and have benefited from him. So, before you fire off a malicious message, dry your eyes, wipe your nose, and go put on your big people pants ‘cause you’re going to need them. Trust me, if you decide to leave because of him it's your loss not ours. Bye.


P.S. If anyone finds this message offensive then I’m probably talking about YOU!

i disagree, Rich deserves everything he gets. he has been especially horrible to me ever since i outed him on the fact that he gets all his technical info from going back to old copies of MXA and DirtBike that he has stored away in his home, "technical library"- yeah right, just a collection of old moto comics if you ask me!

at the end of the day, he is just a big bully and he should grow up and start being nice to people.

i wonder if this is a bad time to ask Rich for another sparkplug reading????:confused:

Not at all Bruce. My advice is to lean out the main jet about 5 steps and then head out to Glamis for some WOT fun. No need to check the plug, everything will be just fine. :p

While I certainly appreciate the kind words they really aren't necessary. Being the bad guy is simple math in the end.

People with agendas + a public forum = someone who is hated most for trying to serve the best interest of the site

Frankly I don't care if people hate me, flame me, or burn me in effigy in their pits. Their whining is a constant source of amusement for me. I sleep soundly at night knowing I try each day to do some good and share what I can. Hopefully other members do likewise and the sport grows as a result. My plan is simple and so are my expectations The opinions of the ranting minority don't bother me in the least. I consider the source and move on.

What does bother me is people who decide they have an axe to grind with a company or an individual and try to use DRN as a forum for that crap. If you have a legitimate beef and present it in a reasonanly thoughtful manner you are more than welcome to express it here. You may have people disagree, but that's the point of an public forum.

BUT, once you turn into one of these ranting vendetta wielding LOSERS, prepare to have you and your moronic posts edited, deleted, mocked and generally held in contempt. Paying money to help keep the site running does not buy you the right to grind your personal axe out here. If you aren't happy with that, TOUGH, that part won't ever change. :p

Since everyone is getting all touchy feely with Rich, I think I'll chime in. He is DEFINATELY all about providing info and helping out the members of the board. Sure I've seen him rip into people on here. Then I do a search on the users posts and always end up seeing as to how/ why it all came to a head. Show him some common courtesy as a human being , and you'll get it back 10 fold. This can be applied to anyone you cross paths with. Atleast that's what my personal experience has been. :thumb:

Thanks Rich for all the help you've given me and to others on the site.
[Now kindly remove your azz from my lips...] :eek:

Pred,

I hope you have the "extra cargo" version of the Whaaambulance. There seems to be quite a few people around here that need a ride. :confused:

You guys really think sucking up will get you somewhere. Or is it a habit? Amazing! :moon:



Relax!! I'm just pulling your chain.



those posers don't rate a second glance or a reply. Ignore them and they'll fall in line although there seems to be an endless supply at times.

The next big thing is "buzz marketing" where posers or existing members will log on or join up and talk up products. They are getting compensated for their time spent in this activity. It starts out seemingly innoucuous and escalates. Sounds like a deceptive marketing strategy to me but you can make your own decision.

All the more reason to stop spammers in their tracks and throw the BS flag when it's obviously needed. :thumb:

Way to be, Pred. You'll get a plaque next year at DW for sure. :thumb: I've got the Colonmobile all ready to go in a moment's notice too. It's loaded with fresh fruit, Metamucil, TP, baby wipes, and mags. Just waiting for the signal. Hey, we should trade jobs once in a while, just for kicks!

How can everyone here be so blind? You have all been taken for a fool (excluding me). I for one KNOW that Rich Rorich doesn't really exist, the screen name is fictitious and was made up by another DRN member. The logic is simple, if he were to post using his real screen name he would have no credibility and his post’s would be yielded useless by those that really know him. By logging in using his secret identity “Rich Rorich”, he can fire away insults by relying on his “phony bologna” fictitious credentials. He does this as a way to get his jollies, say what he really wants to say but doesn't have the guts to say it in real life and most importantly never has to worry about anyone running into him at a track. After all, was this Rich Rorich character at DW03? How about DW02? See what I mean, he doesn't really exist!

The real question is Who "Rich Rorich" really is?

He's a transvestite from Detroit named "Cherry". Don't ask what the Saturday Night Special is.
