Ok I have been gone for a couple of days, so I might not be up on current events here, but where is vwhobo??? Is he on break?? I haven't seen him post anyhting in awhile.
I have no clue...he is no longer a mod...many of his posts have been deleted...I have no clue....
Well, I guess it came up. Adam, up to you.
i guess the resident asshole pissed 1 too many people off.
What does that mean????
it means don't dwell on vwhobos absence! who cares??
I, for one, care. I miss the old asshole. I'ts like having a friend missing and no way to contact him.
Amen to that. Besides I like missspelling a word and getting it rubbed in my face :mrgreen:
I, yes, even me, miss the old asshole also. Adam? what's the deal?
I, for another, also care. And while I would like to know what happened to
bring things to the current situation, I know that it is between vwhobo and
the others who are involved. It is unfortunate though that a knowlegable,
and yes controversial, voice may not be heard here again.
But what concerns me even more is the comment that: "...many of his posts have been deleted...". If this is indeed the case...... While I am not privy to "why" his posts have been deleted, I find it hard to come up with an "acceptable" reason for this kind of censorship. I can understand taking out vulgarity, porn, and advertising in the best interest of the members, but vwhobo only spoke his mind and everyone is entitled to do that as long as it's done in an acceptable manner.
Who knows, maybe the moderators needed to free up some extra disk space so vwhobo's posts had to go. But as soon as history is rewritten, it can't be a good thing. :2cents:
Ok, I looked into it further and it seems that there are still a lot of vwhobo posts out there. Faith has been restored. Just wanted to set the record straight.
Hey hey.. I haven't been on in bout a week.. my :2cents: are, also note the absence of the gearhead garage....! :hi:
I try to keep private business private as much as possible but since you're aware of mass deletion, it needs an explanation. Neither I nor any member of the moderation team have deleted his posts. He has, because of a difference of opinion that has lead to misunderstandig. We discussed the situation in private, he apologized and decided to leave the boards... There was no censorship of any kind involved...
It's a pitty! We had many things to learn from him :(
Amen to that. I hope that he will one day come back and share his knowledge with us. It would be ashame to lose such a valuable asset to this forum. :2cents:
I for one, never thought of any kind of censorship on this board, hope no one else does. This is one of the most open forums I have ever seen, as long as you keep it with in limits. A very fun and informative place to be,,,,, almost like a disfunctional family,,,,, nope, it's disfunctional :ohcrap:
Unfedfat, thank you for the clarification. What happened between the
parties involved should stay between the parties involved. But when
something happens to the forum, then I believe the forum should be
This has been an interesting forum to be a part of. (ok, a small part but I have put my :2cents: in a couple of times) It is pretty well run and I hope that continues. There have been a number of intense conversations and for the most part they were handled in an appropriate manner. They actually help to give this forum character.
It is unfortunate that the differences could not have been solved without anyone feeling that they had to leave. Everybody who posts on this forum adds to the character of it. That character will be missed. Life goes on.
Thank you for the opportunity to contribute, and for helping to keep this place on open forum for idea exchange. :thumbs:
Very well said. I agree.
I agree too, this place is well run and well maintained. We all have a fun time here and that's the main thing. vwhobo offered this place alot, and although..occationally, confrontational, nobody can deny that he knows what he's talking about. We just have to move with the times, and unfortunatelly, if that means without vwhobo, so be it...anyways, that's my two pence :thumbs:
And so the club comes to an end...well...he wont know it...but it will live on as a token of our appreciation of him and it will go on in his rememberance...that is if you all dont want to call it the "Unofficial StiMan fanclub"....sounds pretty ketchy to me! :screwy: :thumbs: :mrgreen: ...Just Kidding...Live well friend vwhobo! :2cents:
I dunno...I think "unofficial Satty101 fanclub" sounds more catchy...After all, I do build the models.. :mrgreen:
too bad its gonna be the SJ fan club. after all, i have more posts than anybody here!!! :laughing:
quantity or quallity?
It will be the Satty101 fanclub. :orglaugh:
Yes...but I build models aswell...not quite as good as yours in the car department...but the aircraft I build are quite good....
My wife is a model...does that count?
The "who cares" comment is not going to gain to many points for your own fan club. :doh: Number of post, WHO CARES? :laughing: Silly boy. :wink2:
I am sure someone does....
First let me say to all my friends on this forum, thank you for your kind
words and concern. I’m quite sure this will be my very last post because
I expect to be banned shortly after posting it.
I would be lying if I said that the explanation above was completely inaccurate. However it is only a portion of the truth, the portion that puts the person typing it in a good light. There is an old legal saying, “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth”. You got two out of three. I will refrain from going into that any further because it won’t do anyone any good. Let’s just say that when parts of the story are conveniently missing or rearranged, that in itself is a form of censorship.
Let me finish by asking a question that will in part prove my point. If “Neither I nor any member of the moderation team have deleted his posts”, then who exactly did? Yes, I deleted exactly ten dead threads which I started. But please tell everyone who deleted everything in the Gearhead Garage and then deleted the entire forum. I know it wasn’t me and the mods don’t have the power, so that only leaves two people… The Administrator or the Forum Fairy and I haven’t believed in fairies since I was six years old. Sorry, but that IS the truth.
Ya’ll take it easy in forumville. I will miss you all. :wink2:
In light of the above post...you HAD the most...
::greets vwhobo:: :)
Thanx for the post vwhobo, I thought I was seeing things when I saw your name as the last on the list to have posted here. Obviously it isn't my place to state anything so I'll try to stay on the side lines as much as possible here..I'll just say this..we've had our ups and downs, but you sure do know what you're on about..take it eazzy mate :thumbs:
ummm.. none of your Gearhead Garage threads have been deleted... They've
moved to R & P...
Tell me, is there a reason to keep a board named "Gearhead Garage - Articles and tips by vwhobo"
What's with the "I expect to be banned shortly after posting it" bullshit? Why are you doing this Bob?
:-D good for you man!!! :thumbs:
vwhobo! Please dont go! I have learned a great deal from your (abusive, but true) lessons! You are one of the biggest role models I have had in my automotive career...please do not go! But if you must...Fair well friend! :thumbs:
Hey man hate to see you go......... but peace be with you brother. Hope you enjoy fixing your VWs
I can't seem to find R & P, would someone clue me in ?
sorry, R & M - Repairs and Maintenance
Just curious,George :mrgreen:
well, I would definitely hate to see ya go hobo, but if you have your mind set to it. may you go from strength to strength later in life... :thumbs:
That's the current amount of posts vwhobo has taken the time to put forth to help people here. After all the garble crap said, none of it is clear as to why exacly he has to leave. But, after vwhobo posted, it's a little obvious it's between him and Adam and maybe a few more. 3,238 posts is a DAMN good reason to give us all a DAMN good explination on what the hell is going on.
Pretty damn sad. The forum can do without me and You, but the Hobo will be a big loss. I don't care what anyone says.FACT :2cents:
listen DodgeRida, although I am extremely curious as to what happened
exactly, I will not put in my nose (even though I kinda did already). It's
their bussiness, not ours. We have no reason to but in.
With that said, Hobo, you will be extremely missed by me, Satty101. I hate to see you go (as I was learning so much from you), but, as you always said, to each, their own. :cry:
Theres the problem with my country, America. Everyone doesn't care about the truth. The truth is always deserved, it's not a matter of whos business it is.
Ok - hobo even though you probably don't give a crap about what I have to say I'll say my goodbyes here. Dude, needless to say were going to miss you. Who would have thought out of the two of us, it would be you to go? you owe it to us, and yourself to tell us why you had to go.
The truth is vwhobo said he's gone.
The truth is we all have to live with it.
The truth is, whatever reason he left for it is no business of ours.
The truth about our country is that it seems to think it should know everything.
Ok, look. I something between you and lets say Adam, where you two were going all out, and you said some crap just to get your way, that you didn't want anyone else to see, would you want someone like yourself asking questions and probing for info and demanding the truth. I don't want to start a fight with you. I have nothing against you at all, but still. Would you let the public see, or just tell them to buzz off?
I agree with that...it just isn't our place to but in, if Adam or vwhobo decide to explain the facts to us, so be it, but untill then, we should all just leave it alone. :thumbs:
So true. Being the country that we are, we seem to always demand the truth. This is not one of those situations. (it's between my mother and me) or whom ever you can relate to. PERIOD
That would be the mature thing to do, but I want to know :ohcrap:
Patience is a virtue. Maturity is....well, something i don't have, but yet another thing that's a good thing to have.
I think that the whole point of this is that hobo is going and we will miss
him...it doesnt matter why, but I respect him no matter why he has to go
because we all greatly appreciate vwhobo and we all consider him a friend.
I, the first probation person to ever return, owe all that I know about
being smart, kind, and able to accept others for what they know and I dont
when it comes to cars to him. I am sure that all of us have some sort of
alike feeling just like me. I just want to thank vwhobo once more for the
time that we have spent together. I just wish that I could have spent more
time (I only got a month) working and interacting with the CF Hall of Famer
that we all know of as vwhobo. Live well my friend, and may our travels
someday lead to meet at the same place at the same time! :2cents:
No dude, that was me, not you.
Blimey, I never thought I'd hear you say that lol...well said though :thumbs: :clap:
Afraid not...you were banned first, but I returned first...there was a time of about 2 weeks were you didnt come back, and I did...
No, he was the first to return..you said you were leaving and only showed ya face again a couple of weeks ago lol...please correct me if I'm wrong :thumbs:
Boy, I'm 53 yrs young, have very little patience,and as far as the maturity level, it's very debatable. Don't think for one minute you are ever going to grow up, you may accept responsability. Men/Males don't grow up, they are groomed by females, if you let them,, I shi* you not. Hold your ground, :ohcrap: it's a battle that can't be won. :evil:
well said Stiman.
*bows head in silence*
Hobo, wherever you are, and where ever you go, may you always find happy-ness (pfft, like that'll happen in the real world). I wish you luck in every task or any challenge you will ever face. As I said, before, you will be missed deaply by me, mainly because I haven't learned half the things I was looking forward to learning from you and you and I haven't really even talked to each other much. I hope we run into each other some day (even though it isn't likely) and actually be able to speak with each other, face to face. Until then, Have a great.....life. :cry: :cry: :cry: :thumbs:
::edit:: ok, I guess I am way late. sorry.
Correctamundo! I was the first to come back...or at least the first to be told I could...that was by vwhobo... :ohcrap: :oops:
Good God. I go out for 2 hours and the post takes off flying. Everyone has posted very nice comments and concerns. I would just like to personaly give props to StiMan. Very well thought out.
indeed. I guess everyone was more interested in it than they even thought and realized they needed to either put their 2 cents in or pay tribute to VW hobo.
Well,well, well, enough of the snotty sh*t. I would just like to have the ol ass*ole back.BEERS ON THE HOUSE :laughing:
Is that beers 'alround' on the house? if so, could ya put a Fosters on ice and I'll be there asap! :thumbs:
Sorry dude, just Bud and Jack.
Nevermind....Bud will do just fine :thumbs: :smoke:
Jack as in jack daniels??? I'm game
There is no other Jack, unless your'e into jack & jill :orglaugh:
wOOt!!! My good friend Jack. ah yes...the memories we've had... :mrgreen:
And 7-up?? Never had it. I perfer Jack straight up. :wink2:
Hmm.. only 1222 posts short.. *am thinking is he admitting to post
I am a model… He he he he etc etc… :mrgreen:
Will there be strippers?? :hi: :smoke:
Very true.. I for one am more that just a little bit interested in the occurrences however I agree they should be laid to rest until one party decides to explain further.. We sadly though may not get to hear both sides of the story…
You can’t enjoy it that much if you can still remember drinking it… :hi:
Just out of curiosity is there any way to still contact VW? :mrgreen:
Sure...you can PM him...and if and when he shows up again...he'll get
Or you could put a note in a bottle and send it out to sea, never know hobo might just receive it :hi:
sorry i'm so late in replying... i've been away for a while... Well
anyway, i'll miss vwhobo too. I've learned a lot of stuff from him.
:ohcrap: i hope to see you again Vwhobo
Where have you been for almost two months?
I just have been very busy. I must have missed a lot though...
never expected this to happen
didn't even think anybody would notice that i was gone
Sorry, but who are u?
He is bubbadaboogerboy of course. (not a damn clue..)
I think he is before our time Mr. DodgeRida...
to clue you and Dodgerida in, he's a member that posted a little then unexplainingly dissappeared.
Do you? Do you really?? :orglaugh: :thumbs:
But what do you see? do you see the sea?...sorry... :thumbs:
Guess i better go re-introduce my self in the newbies section :wink2:
btw: When did the unofficial vwhobo fan club start?
I believe prior to your absence...
I am afraid that since he is gone/ leaving it is only to remember him....
i dunno... i was absent several times before the big one :ticking:
The big ones...as in the big absense?
yes the big absense
Well...welcome back bubba!....you registered at around the same time as me I believe....if I disappeared would you guys notice my absence?....actually, I'll re-phrase that, if I disappeared without being a mod and having been less of a post whore (is that what they are called?) :thumbs:
Probably...I didnt remember bubba cuz I wasnt here I bet....
All you need to look at is the join date :thumbs:
yep...I think I was only here about a month prior to Bubba.
i joined on the 3 of November, 03
You joined on the 19 of September, 03
Edit: i changed my join date right when Bav posted
Nope.... November 3, 2003 is your join date.
and your sig is a bit much right now...rid one pic and it should be fine...just takes way too much space. thx.
Edit: Oh NM...Cliffy's is about the same...and no complaints there.
I changed it anyway :wink2:
Isnt this supposed to be about vwhobo? :screwy:
I think so. :wink2:
I wish I knew why Adam made him leave :ohcrap:
To be fair, I doubt Adam made him leave. From what I've heard about it personally, it sounds like they reached an agreement and VWhobo decided it was best to leave.
I'm pretty sure that Adam or no one else could make the HOBO do anything he didn't want to do. Those of you that have been hanging around here for a while should know that. It could be this, that or the other! We don't and won't know, until one of them wants to tell us. Yes, we or should I say most of us miss him GREATLY! What he had to say, you could take to the bank, getting any change I don't know. :wink2: Opinionated, crass, sometimes rude, asshole, and a sense of humor? Yep, that’s him. Just wish I had 1/8 of his automotive knowledge. I seem to have the other attributes, but who the hell cares. What I'm trying to say is, QUIT KICKING THIS TURD AROUND! If you want an answer, post a question to Adam or Vwhobo, these are the only persons that have/tell/or give the answers. Like I said before (it’s between my mother and me)hope you can relate to the mom and me statement. Wish the big asshole was back. :2cents: 12midnight, down to my last beer :laughing:
yeah, who kicks a turd around, it just gets stuck to your shoe. :mrgreen:
Tried that. That's like telling me to ask the goverment a question
vwhobo never spewed any sh*t as he'd say, look back a few posts, and you'll notice he said that he would probably be banned after that post. Now, tell me, who would ban him, and where would he get that idea? Uh, huh. Don't play stupid everyone, wake up :banghead:
I think that they just had a misunderstanding and hobo desided to just stand down and go because of it...I dont think Adam ha(s/d) any thing to do with it...
I don't know, I just don't know. Adam has kept quiet as possible about
this, which gives me more suspect it was between them. In fact, forget
this. This is damn childs play. Your all kicking the turd around as
lectroid said, Adam told hobo leave. Simple as that. It was between them.
Case closed. End of story.
I miss the knowledgeful asshole ..... :cry:
I dont think that he asked him to leave...you have no proof so just drop it because you are not really even trying to listen to us...we all miss him, but you must just learn to look at the facts and see that there is very little that pushes to your side of the argument, but yes, we should end this...hobo would be disapionted in us if he knew that we are still doing this...
Dude, you got less posts than me. You can't tell me what to do :asshake:
lol...oh well..The truth will come out, always does.
I have always had more posts than you because I am more active in the Forum...you just spammed alot over the past 24 hours...post counts mean nothing...it is the quality that does... :thumbs:
Ever since you found the "magic number", you've been on a spam rampage.
Just go on and change his name to "CF Spammer" :mrgreen: :2cents: :thumbs:
He'd probably like that.
Yes, afraid so
Uuup! Afraid not! I have more posts than you...lol... :screwy: :mrgreen: :laughing: :hi: :smoke:
NO kidding its about sometime somebody made that comment!! :laughing:
Well I did it for you brotha!
*high fives STiMan* Yes you did :thumbs:
Anytime! :mrgreen: :laughing: :hi:
Whew! I too missed out ALOT here! I would have never thought that the Hobo would leave. He told me what he thinks of me many times. But that was just his character. And it was a DAMN good character too! I always thought that the Hobo would stay on CF until the day he'd die. Well, I'll miss ya fellow vw'er! :wink2:
LOL i'm proud to be a Polak as well!
Really?? Great, therefore you speak Polish?
I think warranting 9 pages of post's would make VWHobo proud.
You obviously don't know the hobo. He'd tell us to shut the f*ck up and drop it. He's not the proud type. :laughing:
Yes, he may tel you to shutup, but he is proud,a very proud person and an asshole :thumbs:
The only Polish is that I know is the bad stuff that I have picked up from my Polish teammates.
What do you play? Kurwa Mac. :wink2:
Both Dodge and lecroid are right... he would do both things...
Please, call me "Buz". :laughing:
hey, Buzz Lightyear, can you fly? :laughing:
That joke has pretty much worn out. It was never funny to start with... :ticking:
it was never used in the Forums.... :read:
I'm wondering who ever said it was?
please please PLEASE don't tell me you don't get that... :banghead:
What does a cartoon character have to do with DodgeRida?
just smile and nod.
...and close this topic :doh:
I was thinknig the same thing
ibtl-in before the lock.
ibtl-in .....What is that? :banghead: :doh:
I can do that....
i had yet to post in this thread, and i heard its gonna get closed, so im in before the lock
nobody's going to lock the thread until we have a reason to. Although it is getting quite annoying seeing this damn thread with a new post close to everyday.
like this one? :mrgreen:
Yes, like that one lol...what really gets to me, is that this thread went off topic on about page 6, and now It just bugs me lol :banghead: .....and all the 'one word posts' bug me too :banghead:
Well... Since it has gotten way off topic...Hey i got a great idea! Why
don't we lock it?
(why didn't i think of this before? :thumbs: )
Why close it...? Nothing bad has occured here....
B/c the thread is going nowhere
Well.. besides that...
If anything, it is a thread you all can post meaningless garbage and increase the ever important post count.
One more for me too... :laughing: :banghead:
Yeah i guess... one for me too
ok people, time to stop the whoring...
