Before I go on I'll qualify. Witch Doctor clearly does good by Victory riders and vice versa. His how to's are not fancy directed and produced infomercials, they are a guy laying n his back in a shed busting knuckles. That's great stuff. I haven't bought thing one from him but if I had the need I wouldn't hesitate despite the Ty's and Victory 1's badmouthing. You can't deliver product that meets all the needs of all the peeps. Belle Starr and Jack Daniels both understood that.
Just figured I had best throw that out there since there is some thin ice around here when somebody calls out a vendor that other peeps have had a satisfactory experience with.
OK, moving on.
I am not going to defend the guys methods but I do think it's a pity he bailed. We got what, 13 pages of wisdom and snark out of that thread. So what he was wrongheaded. He had a issue, it was not the garden variety stuff that gets posted every single day, and it led to a lot of reasonable responses and some not so reasonable responses.
If it takes jerks to up the ante on dialogue, so be it I say. If this were a Prozac forum I would expect everyone to think and act all happy and Birkenstock. This is a motorcycle forum though.
Motorcycle=passion. Some folks get run away with their passion, others want a monotone discussion. Both got something to say.
That said, talk is cheap, parts ain't. You sell something, fork it over. You buy something, get the seller paid. You can be a jerk and still do fair dealing. We don't have to be buddies to trade goods.

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
