The problem really escalates as some of you younger people make yourselves known by name, school, age, gender

...license plate numbers both your own and your parents!!

Home addresses in background of pics...(don't laugh...it's happened here!)

We have one individual here that was notorious at arguing and calling people names. On one thread, he decided to post three pics of his car. One was a front view (including license plate) in his driveway...another was a rear view including license plate and his mom's car and her license plate...and his house address. His profile told us what city...the front pic also showed what school he went to by the plastic parking pass hung on the rearview mirror...it was just so pathetic.

I couldn't resist...I had to let him know and he fixed the pics eventually.

He hasn't been around for a month or two.

He changed it within an hour of initial post...and I just looked back...he was last here in early April. Not too far back.

That's up to you. Just don't offer up any information you don't want out.

Well, stuff online can hurt. Every one has feelings, and where do you draw the line in what to take seroisuly and what to dismiss as rubbish. Especially if you know the person outside of the net, or have met them in person. I have a few freinds on here who i have been to meet and some i have fallen out with others are idiots and there is a small core that make it woth meeting all the others for.


Whats the likelyhood that we would have all met each other's personalittes with out the net, there cant be that many car geeks quite as geeky as us on the planet. I doubt i would even run into cliffy and i lived about 20 miles from him for 6 months. This place gives us the opertunity to meet people not necessarly from our socioeconomic background and share an interest.

Look how people responded to VWHOBO leaving there were many caring and kind words. None of us will probibly meet any of the rest of us but one day we might we could run a CF wacky racers rally, everything from beat up stock preludes, i think the one that i had probibly wont be comming, to vettes, rods, kitcars, lowriders, trucks, superbikes and crusiers. Get them all shiped to New Zealand and try and cover all the types of motorsport tracks and races avaible. could be fun you goto admit.
