Take care Ed.
I hate to see you go but after watching the past fews days as you dropped your friends, took down your albums, and now have deleted all your posts... I don't know, I just don't know... seems extreme to me...
This whole mess could have been handled better from the top down.
Wish you'd reconsider your departure. It seems that you will no longer be a moderator but your participation in the forums will be greatly missed I think.
Happy Boating Ed.
If you are ever in the Acworth or Atlanta Georgia area drop me a line and we can hit the water on Allatoona

Ed once wrote, in defending one of his patronizing posts, that we are all different in real life that the characters we portray on this forum and therein lies the root of the issue. I like this forum because everyone is respectful and mature and it's a great place to share our passion for boating and Moombas. And I think that most everyone else portrays themselves on this forum like they are in real life, with Ed being the exception as I hear he is a nice guy in person.
It's too bad that Ed chose to leave entirely instead of just stepping down as moderator (or changing his behavior) but that is his decision.
I look forward to putting this behind us and getting back to what this forum is all about.

I kind of agree with a lot of the other posters on this thread. His thread contributions were usually helpful and he always tried to help out new members. His advice about the boats was usually spot on. As a bioard member he was great. As a mod though, it was hit and miss and the random deleting was just weird. At times his "I love Moomba, Moombas are the best in the world, Thank you so much Moomba" type posts were a bit over the top to me. I mean in the end, it is just a brand of boat that we all own. I would have definitley prefered him to stick around and just tone it down a bit. Oh well. Good luck out there Ed.Levi

I have been on this Forum since 2007. I have discussed many topics with ED. Full of information and a all around nice guy. Yes there was some short spiteful comments. WE all have them. We all have our own opinions. Then he became a MOD. I lost all respect for him and in many occasions, I wanted to tell him off. I held my tongue so that I do not get banned from the site. Before all this went down, I have not been on this site for a very long time. Only because I did not want to hear Ed comments. I found it very rude and uncalled for. Then I come back and all this happened. I really feel bad for him. I do wish him well in whatever his journey take him. Take care ED, you will be surely missed as a member.

Ed you were the first to welcome me to the forum but now I can't see it anymore cause you deleted like 29 of my posts dude!! You deleted a wealth of info that new moomba owners like myself could have/and have benefited from. I can see you getting butt hurt and dropping your "mod tag" but you didn't have to take all that knowledge with you..... FAILJason
