WHO here is the thread police? YOU?

Man I'm getting irritated by so many guys jumping in and being on the spot moderators.

So what if a guy posts the wrong thing in general tech, or accidentally posts to the garage.

If it's a big deal, Chilly or Jones will sort it out.

Time for the "vigilante posse" to give it a rest. If you guys are so interested in enforcing so called stupid rules, become a security guard somewhere.

I guess that I'm part of this police, but I don't try to be mean or anything. I just mention if it seems to be in the wrong place that the OP would get a better response in XYZ area. Sorry if this offends some, just trying to help the OP get the help they need.

I think he is talking about a few of us Schmitty, probably me about jumping on the Street Racer for wanting a death trap to go kill himself and someone else... Well I will put it this way if he bulds it and kills someone you just take it and put part of the blame on your shoulders for encouraging him to build it cuz you said it was ok.....When he specifically said it was to be for Street Racing...... I discourage it in every way shape or form,,, Period

With all due respect to you Greg, stop and look at what you do. I am not at all trying to point a finger at you, but look what you posted to George.

Telling a person to use the search function with out giving him useful information pertaining to his question, verses telling a person they posted in the wrong forum is not much different in my opinion. But you know what they say about opinions, " they are just like butt holes, everyone has one and most of them stink."

telling somebody they are in the wrong section is not bad as long as you make it a simple polite statement, otherwise they may not get the info they want. It is more a matter of how it is stated and some people are rude.

No, Randy, that's not the deal, you have an opinion just like everyone else....and you have the right to present your opinion here or anywhere else.

As far as I'm concerned, we're cool, bro!

What I was getting at was how a guy might forget his address in a classified ad and then he gets knocked around by several guys that might be trying to help, but come across as mall cops.

No offense taken, but in GFP's case it is entirely different in my view.

I hear from Richter69 that GFP's a good guy, however, he just needs some serious forum etiquette.

The guy basically mucks up so many threads (BEST PRICE), and creates so many other nonsense threads it is unbelieveable. Finally it got to me in that one case.

We just need to hear from Chilly or Jones on this one, and they need to put it out there, once and for all, who is in charge of thread and post moderation duties.
