ATF? How are you going to compare this site to ATF? Nothing against ATF or anything but there are what, 7 people that 'actively' post there? There isn't much going on in order to be out of control!

I think if new moderators are chosen than I think they should really be thought through! I honestly think if a few 'chosen' members got ahold of those privileges it would cause a lot of turmoil(sp?)!

I do think there should be a word filter on the forum! Filter every swear(sp?) word! Oh, and along with that, I think you should filter out 'mike' and 'm1ke' out of UserNames. So no one can use those combination of letters in their username!

I do personally think 'Trolls' should be taking care of quicker! I think the ban button is used to 'loosely'. I have already spoke to one of the Mods about this though.

Disclaimer: In no way do the words above reflect any other forum member but myself. I do take responsibility for what I say but I think it needs to be taken into consideration that they are more or less my thoughts and not suggestions!

Not comparing at all. You overlooked my point.

Lonewolf mentioned I was one of the members who cussed a lot, which I admitted to. I mentioned ATF becuase if you were to even read my posts on there, you'd see the big difference. I feel like this site encourages people to not give a f*ck since you can get away with anything on here now.

I don't see anyone enforcing anything around here.

KSE you hit the nail on the head, I mean look a few posts up
I to believe Paul and Chris have one heck of a job on their hands, and they do need help.
I just did a search on the site for the word F*ck, and it turned up 26 threads containg the word, and that is not counting what the MODs have already edited.
29 members and 36 guests viewing at this time, and I am sure the post up above attracted a butt load of potential mature users NOT!!

Who cares... right? LOL...

Seriously though. If they're gonna filter it out, I say filter them all. No point in bing ANTI-f*ckers only.. LOL. it will only encourage people to use the other ones...

Agreed KSE, even though my original intention was to just get the F-word filtered, or at least see what everyone else thought about its free use.
I know some of the younger crowd doesn't find it very offensive(and honestly I don't either), but I know for a fact there are those that do. I just think we need to let the members decide, and leave it at that. Hopefully the Admins will get some help for the MODs so they can try to enjoy this site also instead of constantly editing posts.

ekool, castrol.... choose atleast 2 more if you want things back in order.

Double the man-power for now.

I'll help out, and believe me.. there wont be any BS. It'll go away slowly but surely. If you guys think I can't be a MOD, check out ATF. I'm the Admin along with JDMcivic and tell me if our forum is "out of control."

I offered my help to ekool MONTHS ago, before Chris and Paul.

This time, I say you guys dont do a public vote... choose them yourselves.

I'm up for it, just let me know.

Awww... Did somebody get thier feelings hurt because they didn't get to be a mod?


This is a car site. In theory, everyone is atleast 16. I think we are all mature enough to be able to read a profane word without getting offended. Do you giggle when someone says "pianist"?
Uhoh, I here the PC Police on thier way.
