If you are a friend of mine on BON - and we're not connected on Facebook but you'd like to be, let me know. I’m also not above giving a phone number or email in some case by case circumstances. PM me. Also there is a page on FB some of us BONsters belong to. If you're interested, it currently has 649 members and is called: bikers group a place to meet and ride See More
BON was down numerous days last week. I contacted 'the owner' - James - through FB Messenger to ask if BON was gone for good or if there were simply some issues. He quickly responded BON would be back, there were just some issues. In looking him up on FB, I noted his Father passed on Jan 5th. I’m guessing BON wasn't his highest priority. I offered him my condolences.
When I posted about this on FB a few of the comments I received were disagreeable. The one that really surprised me was: Did I ask him about “the lawsuit?” NO – I didn’t. WHY would I? To me, “the lawsuit” is nothing but a rumor and IT IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS. Period. I approached the owner in a polite manner. I got a quick response that was also polite.
Things I ponder: If one is here on BON, one must find value in the site. If your attitude is that BON sux, that’s fine but why are you still here?
One of the reasons I like BON is – the memes. The lack of policing for political correctness in humor. Things are posted here that would earn you 30 days of Facebook jail if posted there. My humor is warped and politically incorrect – so it works for me. (Our culture has lost its sense of humor, ability to laugh at one’s self and their balls - in my humble opinion).
No matter your opinion of BON, yes there are too many scammers (toy with them, block them or simply, stop engaging them). They are easy to spot. If you truly don’t know HOW and need help – respond to this message and I’ll write a “tips post”. (To me they are VERY obvious).
Yes, there is too much drama here. Yet I continuously see some of the complainers feed the drama under the guise of ‘defending’ themselves. Responding to trolls gives them the attention they crave. Be the bigger, smarter person. If you want them to stop, simply do not give them ANY of your attention. At all. PERIOD. Pretty simple.
