Thanks to all for replying, current and future.
Chilly to answer your reply, I noticed 5 posts on the first page that IMO (for what that's worth) are not Ford 385 Series engine tech! Not to start a "pecker swinging contest", it just annoys me. I'm sure other members are not as much a ***** about this as I! Yes, I do look over those posts, although they do catch my eye while scrolling through the web site.
I understand that there is no absolute control of these occurrences. Should there be? That's obviously not for me to decide! Also, I'm not saying we should search out these unrelated posters and torture them into submission, or worse. Hell, I be the first to be prosecuted from my unrelated posts of the past!
If I may say, I have seen automotive or specific topic forums and message boards that in the beginning offered incite about the intended topic, related to the individual forum. In time, these same forums become another place for groups to land and discuss any topic they desired. Try posting, relative to the original forum topic, and your rarely offered a reply relative to your post!
At times these actions reminds me of the current society in which we live. The inability of people to accept responsibility for their actions, political correctness, an abbreviated world and complaining of the cost of being free, because they are! I watch documentary's of war and "hard times", only to weep of the hardship's citizens before us confronted, that made these United States home. Contrary to most, a damn site better than other areas of the world!
In closing, Chilly, you have and continue serving the interest of the Ford 385 engine enthusiast at a level second to none. You also provide *****s like myself an opportunity to vent, even if my venting seems senseless! I thank you and your efforts.
