    A nice comment in the wrong thread is now the issue ?

    Oh boy...

    This site was the home of thread de-rails. I am being nice to Bill. Why can't you accept that I don't understand .


    I turned over a new leaf with Bill and I made my review and now I'm doing the right thing Josh, why is that so hard for you to understand.?

    And using caps on profanity is throwing emphasis on profanity and is not 'nice'.

    I am so confused right now. When this forum started it was supposed to be uncensored, no deleting of posts AT ALL, and the only rule was be nice. I've have been pseudo keeping up with all of the temper tantrums and hurt-feelyoma but it is not easy. I know Steve is extremely busy but it seems he needs to take all admin rights back, temporarily, until one or two more people who can remove themselves from all situations can be made admins. No offense Nightflyer but you are coming off like a dictator towards Lou, it's almost as if you have some dog in that fight and perhaps you are a bit too close to the situation, the same as you claimed on Chad. Just my observation and two cents. Take them as you want.

    Long story short, I would like the forum like they were originally setup.

    I truly dont think its because I had an issue with Bill, or that it got to the point that participants got out of hand and words were exchanged.

    You must know something that I don't.

    I wasn't made aware of any rules I'm supposed to be enforcing on speech, except for porn, libel, and criminally illegal speech.

    Also, admins were not fighting amongst themselves. We had a problem with some rogue administration that was implemented inconsistently with the principles of the forum, but those errors were corrected and the situation was satisfactorily resolved for the involved parties, including the forum.

    I agree completely with ChuckD.

    I would like to see this forum as it was originally set up and I promise to keep my cool from now on and anything 'insulty' is only ribbing in good fun.

    I will treat Bill with respect in every way, I promise.
    Peace

    Since I seem to be the big offender, that should fix things. I was just telling it like it is but my speech was too crude I guess.
    As I said, it's not anyone's arguments that's the issue, it's the new rules that should have never been.

    The comments that I previously had to move out of Bill's thread on three separate occasions were not nice. The comment that I had to move this afternoon was fairly neutral, but it still didn't belong in that thread. Regardless, your version of events was not accurate. As stated before, and as you can check on the thread for yourself, I had to ask you three times not to crap on Bill's thread. By the third time, I started using tougher language in the hopes that you'd finally understand. You had your own thread to say whatever you wanted about Bill's product and his service, but for whatever reason, that just wasn't good enough I guess.

    What profanity?

    All the talk about anything construed as insulting.

    I don't know ....... Lets just go back to how it was before I started shooting my mouth off and call it a day.

    I don't know what my versions of events means but I was talking about the "If I have to explain I'm going to be pissed" and "I don't need this shit" if that's how it is then maybe you shouldn't have taken on the role Josh. Not insulting your ability to be an admin and get the whip out but just sayin if a few thread moves are too much. It's a good thing the picture if my kitten didn't have to get flipped.
    I apologize if I post things in places where they shouldn't be but we got so many thread splits thanks to ...... And I wanted to make sure it was seen because I felt good about turning over a new leaf with Bill.

    Never in bad intent Josh. I know I'm 'the man you love to hate' but I DO mean well.

    Seriously we don't need many rules. No mirror accounts, No porn, that's about it for now.

    As far as personal attacks I say bring it. Once we start censoring attacks then everytime some little pansy gets their feelings hurt we need a freaking rule change. Can't we all just suck it up?

    I would really be bummed if this place turned into something else.

    I don't come here for Delorean chatter. I come here to talk about other things, and have a place to ask good people questions about my car if it comes up. Thankfully it rarely comes up. If I only wanted to use people for Delorean information I'd sit on Talk. I liked the people I found here when I came to find my own Delorean, so I stayed.

    I don't think new rules are the solution. Everyone just needs to simmer down and remember why we're here. To hang out... share things... pass the time. It would suck to lose that.
