I think your taking a rather simplistic view of this.

Stiman, your being a bit stubborn… there was a few times I've posted threads (ie. "Why does a stick stops faster than an automatic") where I would have the problem where some posters couldn’t help me out because they would have to explain a whole lot and type everything in their own words (which they didn’t feel like doing) rather than just posting up the link where I could go to which would be much more convient. I find that very sad, again, this is a forum.. If the link is under the threads topic and would be helpful than y not? It will help me out, I don’t think that would be advertising.. Even if it was advertising, the point of it was to help the thread starter with knowledge and information. Isnt that the priority? Shouldn’t the first priority be to help the members with knowledge, im starting to think the first priority of this website is to disable all links and pictures that could be helpful. It wouldn’t hurt the website if there was a link or picture would it? But it would hurt the thread starter because he/she wouldn’t be able to get the information he wants. We the members should be the first priority. That’s why I think its getting out of hand.

I've seen some threads where a "poster" would try to put up a picture (Which would've been very helpful for the thread) of a car or item and they would ask them selves "im not sure if its allowed, that might be advertising" man that’s really sad.. That’s basicly taking away our freedom to provide people with knowledge. Come on now. And im not saying that every link every member post up should be allowed, I just think only the helpful ones should remain, what damage could it cost to the website? NOTHING.. But it will cause damage to us members that are lookin for answers.

if posting links, or images is starting to be a problem where that would be concidered "advertising" than we should just stop posting our signatures and profile and just disable everything!

Not importlova, but maybe we should ge someone to replace BavarianWheels. (bav makes him sound gay, no offence anyone)

I agree to the fact stated that "He is just doing his job" but that's not just what he's doing. We need to cut slack on this advertising thing and just drop the intro crap.

how about, after you get to a certain number of posts or a certain time frame then you can get some of the mods rights, then you get the more senior memebers sharing the load. There are a number of people on here who could be mods, dodge, chris V, SJ, import, cliffy when he comes back, sti etc

I dont have a problem with mods i just think that there doesnt seem to be a recognition that the world has shades of grey not just black and white.
