Post I'm done, thanks to those who made it great

Well, in light of the current attitude this board has taken on, I am throwing in the towel. I have loved every second I have been here, you guys are the best. I have made a number of great friends and contacts here, but recently the whole attitude of trhe posts have been rude and seem to be in the direction of a fight. I can't deal with that ***** from a place I come to just relax and maybe speak my mind a little. I'll be around for my friends that know me, you guys know where I work, stop by. For the rest of you, PEACE!

And for the rest of you that spurred this on, (you know who you are) go to hell.

Hey, I know exactly how you feel. It's not nearly as bad as the Honda boards here, but the quality of this board has steadily been dropping.

But trust me, you'll be back...

I order you to stay!

Seriously, you can't let the PS2/Opie thread be the reason for leaving! If I had 10 PS2's, I'd sell them off too! $350 each!!! The extra $50 each should be enough to cover a JC Sport intake and S-AFC!!!

So please stay. Besides, I need to be able to show you how MUCH BETTER I AM THAN YOU IN GT3!!! I'd even drive in reverse just to give you a "chance" to win!

Yes Opie's comments were out of good taste but when you look at your own words:
"....I dont know who the fuc* you think you are....
....If you don't like what I am doing, too fuc*ing bad...
....Watch what you say and who you say it to, assh0le....
....Maybe before you post such stupidy..."

Yes some people were negative to you, but you should be the adult. And those words are not from an adult. It sounds like you are the only one who wants to fight.
There is no reason to get all upset and quit a awesome club over some stupid Off Topic post. Everyone is a valued memeber and I hate to see anyone go. especially after something like this.
Just take a deep breath and relax. think about your car, now what someone else hundreds of miles away thinks of your buisness, After all that is why we are really here; OUR CARS!

BTW watch where you direct that flame thrower, I was one of the guys that supported your 'buisness venture' on the original thread.

Hey, don't let it get to you... people will forget what happened and just don't mention it again unless you're willing to cut someone a deal on one or something. *shrug*

I wonder if the guys on the Playstation Bulletin boards get in fights over Subaru products?

Anyone know which way it is to the i-club where they discuss Subaru stuff. Oh... wait a minute, I'm already here. Nevermind.

Wow, I post a civil response to a post containing profanity and threats and I'm the bad guy? Like I said, I could care less what Impreziv is doing with his PS2's. If he makes money doing it...good for him. My response was directed more to his post that was chewing out another member for posting his take on the subject. That's the kind of thing that isn't needed on this board. And talk about posts going in the direction of fights, maybe Impreziv should go back and re-read what he wrote. Sounded like an attack to me.

EDIT: BTW if my post was that offensive, a PM would have been a good place to discuss it.

Well, I can see where you are coming from, what with some of the group buy people and what not. Sorry to see you go, but I'll stop by work later this week. Oh and by the way, save me one of those PS2's
Good luck with the ebay venture. Ahhh, gotta love capitalism.
Later my friend.

And yes, I double-posted intentionally. I wanted to make sure you read that, IMP.

And for my final post:
I would just like to thank Barry Schmotz for being and acting like everything this board is not about. Barry, you could not have made my point any clearer. Thanks.

I prefer you stop sticking up for your boyfriend IMP. He needs to grow up.

BTW, what are the odds that this lame-ass thread gets locked pretty soon? hehe...

C'mon Barry, no need to act childish. Does IMPREZIV really bother you that much? Why are you taking it personal?

Maybe you have some issues that need to be dealt with on clubsi or something... I'm with 8, you should just leave-

Ok, folks. That's it: I'm officially locking this thread myself. No, I'm not authorized to do so. But I have no choice. I'm doing this for your own good.

From now on, no more posts.

Good luck to you, and Happy Yom Kippur.

Barry Shmotz.

I agree with 8, I think that Barry needs to calm down or just leave.

Why lock this thread? This is a really important point/phase of this board and club. We really need a few abilities here that aren't available with this board's script I think:

A) The ability to moderate posts, sort of a la slashdot.org or so. By moderating lame posts or even lame threads to a negative number, we can effectively get rid of the threads or posts, right?

B) The ability to individually ban posts from people you don't like listening to. For example, if I can have the board NOT show me posts by ImpRicer and RSwannabeRacer [no offense if these are actual people!], then I can still see the threads, but they just won't show up. I can personally think of maybe 5 people who post garbage repeatedly, and I would probably return here as often as I did a year ago if I could make those points invisible to me selectively.

C) OT section.

D) Multiple moderators? If we can individually moderate/give or take points from posts, maybe we need moderators with a more sensitive attitude to OT and flame wars?

I agree with Dada, believe it or not. However, in addition to what you mentioned, we also need the ability to somehow filter out sappy, inane posts like those of IMPREZIV (i.e "I'm upset and I'm never coming back"...boo-frickin-hoo). Very important.

The boards are actively moderated.. However we also feel it is right that people have the freedom to express their points of view.

many of the seemingly OT posts are in some cases very helpful to other members and in some cases just downright funny..

However there should never be any reason for personal abuse between contributors to these forums..

to answer your points.. I (and prob the other moderators) have been following this thread very closely.
