Seems things have gotten a little loose around here regarding the forums rules. Please take a moment to read over them again.

http://www.grandamgt.com/forum_guidelines.html

They WILL be enforced.

Don't agree with a topic? Use some tact and discuss it like an adult. Don't like a member, then stay out of their threads. Sounds easy, no?

I'm sick of seeing the same people insulting, flaming, and generally being a **** to members, new and old, because they don't agree with what is posted.

Keep it civil.

Quit playing the victim, sunshine:


And how long did it take you to figure that out? The Oky locals shamed you into getting a truck instead of, what was it a Honda or Kia? So you gave up a more reliable car with a "better aftermarket" to improve your image, probably already spent a ton of money on the T/A and made it run slower. If you have moved to a better community, then make this a better community and GTFO

:asshat

I irritate people when they need it, but you irritate for no other reason than being an *******.

Oh, yuh, "gotta have a hemi-truck tuh throw muh clothes in. Yup."

oh really, why did you lose interest in the Honda?

Then why didn't you just keep the Honda and trade the TA, it had better resale, better aftermarket, just as fun a car, cheaper to mod lol

cause it just weren't badass 'nuff.

Why can't you learn to think before you post?

ooo, da whiz kid there doesn't get the point, yet he "knows" it to be invalid...

and he actually owned a musclecar in the 60's and knows what that was like....

and still can't keep from sticking around and bashing N-bodies, even though he "moved on" to better things

:applause:

O Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. I sure hope you're not expected to do anything important or requiring thought where you are.

That's right, you don't know, because you also didn't read and comprehend that he might have been looking for an excuse to trade the Honda (instead of the TA), which by his own reasoning was more suited for modding than the TA. He gave advice to somebody else which he did not follow himself.

But that was not all, either, as while common sense would tell anyone that car modding is a personal preference, some people still insist on being jerks when they buy a different car, do some unimaginative mods to it, then come in here and act like they came down from the Mountain with the secret of life.

He should have posted some pics of his truck in use, on his very busy, truck drivin' job he was at today.

And I find your accusations of "flying off the handle," etc., to be hyperbolic.

Quite whining. The playing field is even. People get warnings when it is needed. Chris has gotten plenty of warnings and been banned plenty of times.

You got warned because you made an inappropriate post attacking someone out of no where for no reason and I decided it was uncalled for. I'm not gonna waste my time going around dishing out points for every rebuttal someone else makes unless things really get out of hand. I'm going to punish the person who started it in the first place. Get over it.

Read post #17.
You already gave me warning points for my recent posts. That's the first points I ever got. So now if I contact an Admin to complain about uneven moderation, that's whining? The main reason I responded to tipnitty was his prior bashing of our N-body platform. Why do you allow/encourage that?

Of course, if it's you that craps up the threads with off-topic posts, that's OK.
Funny, as soon as I started acting like your buddies, it suddenly became a big issue. That's half the reason I replied to the admin. All the posts after that by me were on-topic for this thread, iirc.

1. I did not single you out... I said ALL OF YOU need to take it to PM's. I've said the same things to other members before when they get in their little "feuds"... this isn't a unique situation, you just happen to be one of the people involved this time. I'm not picking on you, but you're the only one that's replied to me so far.
2. "My buddies"? 99% of the people on here are pretty chill, and I treat them all the same. I know some of them more, and have more side conversations with them, but it's one big family here.
3. I don't argue with other members across multiple threads. If I want to do something like that, I make a thread about it... fairly sure I did that several times to locoman just to bust his balls. Do I contribute to the useless yammering around here? HELL YES I DO. I probably have typed more useless posts on here than anyone else ever has. It's fun. Know what's not fun? Watching the same 3-4 members have a pissing match over nothing everywhere you look.

Again with the whining. I don't recall any previous "bashing" of the n-body by tipnitty. Regardless of if it happened or not... THAT isn't in the rules. If someone really didn't like n-bodies I don't know why they would be here, but they have a right to voice their opinion as long as they don't attack other members. It doesn't say "no n-body bashing" anywhere in the forum rules.


It's really quite simple. We allow a LOT of leeway here simply because there isn't much activity anymore like there was years ago and people would stop coming here. I'm not a baby sitter. I've got better things to do than slap your hands and give out warnings all day. Sic and I are really the only ones who check in and moderate anything anymore, and I haven't even seen him on in a while. If two of you yahoos want to go back and forth for a little while, we let it go unless it gets really out of hand or everyone gets sick of it. Sometimes I do try to reign things in though and remind people not to go overboard, and if I see a completely one sided attack out of nowhere like what you did, yeah I'm gonna say something.

All I did was ask you to stop. You decided to be an ass and press the issue so you got points. Big whoop... put on your big boy pants and get over it. It's the internet, it's not really that important.

btw, don't you have a thread to update? You know, in the "All go" section, Top 1/4 Mile Times, "this one WILL get updated."

I made a post directed at ALL of the people involved saying to take it to PM's... because it's rather pathetic for you guys to cry to the mods instead of just taking care of it between yourselves. Even if you guys did want to lay out your thoughts towards each other, dragging up a year-old mod post isn't the place for it.

You decided to take it as a personal attack, I guess? Nobody else has said anything to me, privately or publicly, just you. I wasn't attacking you, though, at least not you individually.

That's all well and good, except I replied to an admin, who seemed to be more reasonable than the moderator I was dealing with. Why not take it to PMs in that case? Because it's all too easy to get banned then have said moderator come in and post lies that he said transpired in the PMs. I mean, I only see one person "flying off the handle" in this thread, and I don't think PMs would be productive in this case. ;)

It also says on the first page to post your info in the thread, but the thread is locked, due to me being sick of people arguing and being a bunch of babies (see a running theme here?). If you go to the last post in the thread, before I locked it, I tell people to PM me the info instead. The reason being, I don't have time to comb the forum for EVERY post someone might make with their time from a run down the strip. I'll gladly update the first post though to make this clear for people.

Clearly, AGTR and I don't see eye-to-eye all the time but we're not blowing up every thread antagonizing one another like some of you seem to relish in. Some of you are 24/7 trolls with hard-ons for each other and some of you are a bit too prickly to be allowed on the internet.

I have no problem dishing out warning points or bans and to everyone's point I'll do so equally. But that means that a good handful of you will be on a time out for a bit all in the name of equality. If it's fine with you guys, then report away...
