Why you delete the message?

PeteD, if you completely understand why everyone is bailing on the forum, why don't you bail out. In other words, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Don't go away mad, just go away. I believe I.m speaking for other members, not just myself, when I say, we don't need you here.

If you had constructive criticism of our forum, that would be fine. But it seems your just here to knock us down. So go be a troll somewhere else."

I waaaaaas posting constructive criticism until you chimed in. The OP asked what happened to this place. I was simply explaining why people come on and ask a question and they always get the smart "google is your friend" or "search is your friend". And it runs people off. Why come on and ask for help if all you are going to get is a rude response instead of helping, or not saying anything at all?And all I have gotten in response is hostility. And mostly from you. And you are supposed to be a moderator. Now you know why I posted "I completely understand". Because of you. If you don't like people trying to actually help, give constructive criticism without bashing, then maybe you are the one that needs to look for something else to do or somewhere else to go. With or without the ass. Professional you are, hunh

Funny thing Pete, but I have answered thousands of members question, without telling them to look it up. I've done hundreds of hours of research to make sure that my answers were right when I give them. I sometimes suggest members download service manuals, parts books, etc.

I deleted the message because I thought it was mean spirited, but now I see it was deserved. I strongly suggest you leave the forum and go somewhere else.

That is you. Was I talking about you? Did I mention you? Nope. For the last time I was simply responding to the OP's question. Then you come on with your big bad keyboard and make a statement like you did, when I have done nothing wrong. Now you want to act all nice as though nothing happened. You are going to have to make me leave. That or quit harassing me, Your choice. And your last two posts just go to answer the question that the OP had. This is the rudest forum I have ever been on. No wonder you don't have much going on. You are not going to talk to me the way you did in that post and me not respond. This forum gets exactly what it deserves with people like you in charge. Now leave me the hell a lone.


You started it.

I don’t recall ever saying anything political. I was simply referring to the fact that some things can be figured out on your own if you do some research and some diagnosing. Rather than being impatient and squawking because nobody is replying.

That’s kind of the reason why I went on my first hiatus from this place around 3-5 years ago. Got tired of the same ol same ol. Is it my opti, my car won’t start. As much information that was once stored in this forum a search will do wonders. I still see not much has changed at all. You may remember me from one of my cars. I’ll attach one for old times sake.
CKJ? Were you the guy running GTO wheels on your bird? Weren't you a moderator on here back in the day?

CKJ, 95Z, transamman25, all left the forum when original owner sold forum. CKJ was so pissed off that he deleted most of what he posted to forum.

Good spot, certainly looks like CKJ has returned to the nest. I for one miss the old crowd. They brought a lot of knowledge to the forum.

When was the forum sold? I'm assuming it was before I joined in 13.

I don't remember exactly when forum changed hands, but yes, it was before 2013.

All the admins & most of the mods left, but it wasn't all at once. Rather, it was slowly over time. Sweetbmxrider is still here occasionally, and 95z posted a couple of months ago.

I feel like people have migrated to fbook cause there's less chance for spam. There are faces and real people behind the posts. Lots of forums I've been on now are heavily sponsored and have a ton of promotional posts

Well Facebook is terrible, 90 percent of the technical information is shit. It is the new Craigslist though, you can find all kinds of people to low-ball. I do enjoy the racing groups though, we pretty much just talk shit and talk about racing.

I always liked it around here because it was more LT1 oriented than the other site, and we always talked about horny clowns and clown porn.

I was a moderator around 08 and left cause I got me an ole L S, and the LS section was always a little slow around here.

I sold the Vette and don't miss it but really miss my old Z28 so I bought a firechicken to make a race car, now that I have an LT1 I'll be checking in more frequently, it is sad to see most of the old crew is gone
