I agree 100%.


The nude pics and false links to such should never have to be tolerated. That is a different issue. Censorship on speech is what I should have said.

I'm a mod at the Redline Forums over there...

*Spooner points to the hard drive of the server...*

So I know what's up...

How many people have their SS's at this point? Still a low percentage? Might be the biggest issue right there...

I have been reading this thread along with the one originally started by Lonewholf over the last few days. I have to say I totally agree with there being a word filter as it is just plain bad for business. Simple as that..... I do have a suggestion that I have seen used on another site I frequent. It simply puts -blam- in place of any word that has been blocked. I however do not know how easy this would be to implement. That way people don't have to stop writing how they talk/feel and it gets the point across. For you out there who don't agree with the way I feel about this just know I use that kind of language all day EVERY day. And I didn't use it once this whole post!!!! :eek: :D

KSE, maybe because of this being listed on the home page "CobaltSS.com is a site dedicated to the Chevy Cobalt SS. CobaltSS.com provides you with forums, discussion, information, pictures and media related to the Chevy Cobalt SS. "

He has a point in a way.. There are not that many on here that have a COBALT SS, and probably don't intend to ever get one! That is also why there are so many guests always listed(right now 15 members and 20 guests viewing), people out there are trying to find out information on the Cobalt. However this site seems to attract all types of car enthusiasts, and that is where alot of the problems start(mine is better then yours, blah, blah, blah!!).
The last site I was a truly active member on didn't take any crap from anyone, unless you owned that type of car. They were and still are very protective of there own.. We don't have that here... YET! I lurked on this site and COBALTSS, before I made the decision to purchase my Cobalt and didn't make any posts until the night it was in my driveway.
It would be interesting to take a poll to see how many "active" members have a Chevy COBALT, or intend to get one in the near future ;)

It's the exact same car.... :rolleyes:

It's the fact that 1/2 the discussions tend to degrade into a dick sizing contest about someone's brother's, cousin's, buddy's *insert car name* instead of people talking about the car. I'm not exactly new to this place, or to forums. How does your questioning my right to respond have anything to do with excessive foul language? Were I an immature jerk, I'd get all pissy and start insulting you. Which would result in the above excess of foul language. I did my own search on his offensive term, and without taking detailed notes, a large percentage of his complaints stem from statements like...

"Screw you fkin POS *insert car name*, your a Fkin dumbass..."

After an otherwise useful post degrades into a useless arguement....

Sp00ner, if you are talking about "my"(his) complaint/offensive term, you are correct along with everything else you said above :) .

Thank you ... I too would like to see more useful posts on our cars, especially on ideas of dressing them up :cool: Well.... at least until some of the performance parts start hitting the shelves :D
EDIT:
Oh, and as far as a ROMPER ROOM, I think you will see that was never my intentions.. One word, and its excessive use was all I questioned, and it was not so much to protect the younger crowd, but the older crowd that doesn't take kindly to it(if that makes any sense).. I just hope everything works out for the best.

I hope it never does. Protecting your own is completely different from not listening to others comments. I do not own one, nor will I for financial reasons, but I don't come here to bash or talk down to people. I am sure John isn't out to make a TOTALLY cobaltss owners only club for this entire website. If you all want something like that why not just make up your own version just like the SRTforums:

CSSoc (Cobalt SS owners club)

I am sure you could get your own little room on this site with members only allowed to talk. It would be a single password protected room. I know that can happen cause MANY sites I am a member on have them (Super-offtopic, Shit Talk, Advanced Mechanics).

Limiting ones self expression is only the beginning. If you must have a filter, get one for you, NOT everone else. I am just not one for it.

So when does the poll close?

You can't have it open forever. Looks like the answer is no?

If you look right above the red line for yes you will get your answer.... :D

I'm not sure but I think it may be 2 years old. Somewhere in that time frame though. So you most likely won't have trouble finding it. Stars Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, and some others.

Haha gf caught my attention earlier when I was reading your post. I thought you asked how old I was, my bad lol.

No problem bud!! 29 is a good age to be at.. Only wish I was back there sometimes..
Is this the movie about a frat house, and a bunch of older men going back to college/moving into a fraternity? If it is, I remember previews, but never saw the movie :( .
Thanks for the info..
