Vespa gone?

Post by PhilB » Sat Jul 11, 2020 12:23 pm

I noticed just now that there were several posts with the "deleted user ***" instead of the member's user name.
This is a pretty recent thing where you can delete your profile via a tab in your profile/user control panel.
Looking around they appear to be Vespa's posts.
Quite a shock as things seemed fine although he had Pm'd me recently with concerns about the antics of a recent member.
He will be a great loss to this forum as a long standing member and someone who had collected a great deal of material and knowledge about the XE.

I just noticed that too and was really surprised. He’s helped me so much in the short time I’ve been on here and can see all his old posts that were there to help many others before me.

Yep, I noticed he'd disappeared as well. Pity, he was a good source of info and help.

I hope he has just accidentally deleted his profile and will be back again soon. The forum won't be the same without his knowledge and input.

I wish him well for the future whatever he's doing.

I would imagine it takes a few clicks along the lines of "are you sure" before it gets binned.
I don't know if anybody on here was in touch with him via email off the boards, but if they were perhaps contact him and see if he is ok.
I'd be particularly interested to know.

Hope nobody has been doing some forum maintenance and accidentally taken him out :o

No.

What!!! No Vespa? I am so surprised, as he has been a consistent, knowledgeable and interesting contributor to this forum and will be surely missed. I just hope all is OK with him and that all this is just a big mistake.

I have to agree with folks - he'll be missed a lot!
