I've greatly enjoyed my time here ... Astounded by great builds ... Inspired by great builders ... I really learned a lot ... Applied various techniques posted by great builders with great success to my own builds .... And to all of those I greatly thank you .... I will still check in to see the posts / builds but will not participate in any way shape or form because of the way members here are treated ... Everything can be worked out ... But to "stalk" , "hound" and disrespect members because of opinions and statements are totally and unconstitutionally frightening ... This is the United States of America ! ... It was built on opinions ... Rubbing people the wrong way ! , saying things that could hurt people's feeling ! ... Get a grip people ... !!! ... This is a place for our freedom of speech ... Our way to express ourselves .... And for god sakes a modeling forum ... not the Senent Floor ! If you have nothing to do but read every post on this forum you must have a sad existence ... Sorry but that is nothing but truth : /

HEY MODIRATORS ! ... Why haven't you put a lock on every post of the General Lee ! ... I find that very offensive !!! ... Let's think about what's going on here ! ... Fair is FAIR !!!!

New MODIRATORS are a must !
Get a grip guys ... Or maybe a job ! ... : /

You want this to be a success ...? ... Let it flow ... Let people express them selves ... America was and is built and our views and opinions ... Good bad or indifferent ... Lets get this thing squared away ... I'll check back in a few months to see how things are going ... Hopefully I will be suprised ... If not ... no big deal ... I will find new friends with open minds and big hearts ready to teach and learn ...
Was going to subscribe to the mag ... MODIRATORS put a stop to that ... Hopefully Gregg reads this ... Ones not enough to throw up a flag but I'm sure there are others that feel the same way but stand firm hoping YOU will DO something ... Please DO something !

Good bye my friend ... ( for now )

Gee, I miss everything. Got about 3,000 posts and I have had no trouble with anyone nor have I been a problem for anyone ( I hope ). Where is all this distaste for the Mods coming from. I must have missed something somwhere .

I know this thread will not have a very long shelf life, but there is very big difference between freedom of speech and opinions, and then just being down right mean to fellow human beings, and it the later that gets a lot of threads locked down

No, it's not the "Senent" floor. Or even the Senate floor. It's just a model car forum, but we do have rules. And the rules are in place in order to try and make the forum fun for everyone.

You don't like the rules here? This is America. You have every right to leave and join a forum that you like better.

Thats just it ... how do you know if another "Mod" is doing his job correctly ? ... You probably don't ... Because you don't communicate !

Some people need thicker skin ... When my grandfather was called names when he came from Germany in 1945 that didn't keep him from building one of the united states biggest tooling manufacturing companys ... You know why ? Because he didn't care ! It was someone's opinion ... It made him stronger ... Made him dig deep and do great things ! ...

Seriously it's a HOBBY ! ...

Let it go ... Build something ... Don't knock people down !

I'm not sure I understand exactly what it is that's bugging you. New moderators are a must? Do you have an issue with a moderator? If so, the way to handle it is to PM that person and work out your problem in private, not to rant publicly about how all the moderators need to go.

I just went through this BS with another member today. Geez... seriously, guys... if you have an issue with a moderator, PM the moderator! Don't spout off here in public. It accomplishes nothing.

Take up any issues you have with that person via PM. Not the way you did it.
