Actually, if you only had a clue...
Drama is one of the things that keeps a forum active. Drama only happens when people interact with one another. Of course, to have drama, personal interaction and open dialog, you can't have a forum that's controlled by the self appointed, politically correct thought police.
Certain people who fit that description, and who just happen to be moderators on this forum, will tell you that certain other members are the cause of the death of this forum. Their list will start with my name. In their mind they could never be to blame. But the fact of the matter is that this forum went down the drain after
I became essentially inactive. But the fact that I pretty much gave up on the place and left is only a tiny part of the lack of participation.
No, the problem began with the weak minded yet power hungry people who were selected to be moderators. Then the problem expanded when those moderators took it upon themselves to quash the open communication that makes an online forum thrive. And you know who they are, you only have to honest with yourself. The really sad thing is that I predicted this would happen during the selection process, when I was still a mod. And because I was not willing to have my integrity diminished by being connected to them as a moderator, I took the necessary steps to relinquish my moderator status. But that's another topic for another day.
No, unfortunately at this point in time this forum is probably beyond saving. The owner doesn't give a damn about it, the moderators are generally AWOL and when they are here they're generally incompetent. And even the long time members, the guys who kept this place alive for years, have been run off. You, dvd, corbett and glagon included. Which is really a shame because this was and could still be the best car forum on the internet.
Put a fork in it... It's done.
ETA: Happy birthday to Godlaus!
