It's the internet, people. You don't have to wonder and guess, lol.

Kidding, but I found the relevant post:

When I read about political crap on the Mirage forum and realized that in spite of almost 6000 total posts, few even understood how important some things were to me I decided it's just time to cut the cord, finish my projects and change course in life.

Some personal stuff combined with run away blood pressure and either the option of medication that makes me dizzy anytime I move quickly and my heart rate will not speed up until I feel like I'm going to pass out.

Today on the Mirage forum I read about "if someone who is not a Democrat gets elected we go abck 50 years as far as emissions regulations " I remember watching on TV as Paul Ryan pushed your grandmother over a cliff and lost it. My response was deleted but the original post remains at this time.

That's it for me, ya'll have a good life. This decision like the one last January 2015 when I quit smoking after 46 years, is NOT NEGOTIABLE. Save the sympathy for someone who needs it, I don't.

To make sure that my request is taken seriously and executed expeditiously, I 'll come back and try to log in. If I succeed I will start deleting my posts here until there are none left. Spare me the energy effort and frustration on top of all the rest of the frustrations that have brought me to this point. It's just self preservation.

I wouldn't mind his input on a hydraulic set of trucks we're building

Old Mechanics tadpole trike

Old Mech,
your project has been an inspiration to me and one extra reason to stay in the game.
In the World's Fastest Indian,Sir Anthony Hopkins portrayal of Burt Munro,he uses a quote from Sir Winston Churchill about men in the 'arena.' It resonates when I think about what you've done.
I can only speculate on the personal cost to you for the tadpole project,but it's importance to me personally I'll never be able to properly express.
Thanks for all you've done and shared.I tip my hat to you.You're a hero,and I wish you only the best,wherever your life leads you.

That might be true, but I do recall him saying it was a political comment in the lounge forum that was the last straw. I stay out of the lounge almost entirely, and I unfollow threads that turn political. My politics are not of interest. I don't want to be baited into some pointless debate here. I guess OM had a different policy, and it cost him. I miss him. I actually think of that guy from time-to-time and I have never met him I don't think. Go figure.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
