Guys...

I am at the point of just saying this...

Drop it, let it go! Things haven't changed. If you want to go to another place, please feel free, but don't come back here and complain. It isn't doing anyone any good!

I have been 100% open and told everyone I am open to suggestions and comments. I don't own this, I don't get paid to do it, and I stepped in because I could help keep things status quo for the most part.

There are a select few that continue to come here and bad mouth what little changes there have been, and are mad at the change in ownership. If those people continue to post non-contstructive comments and threads, then we will just have to start doing something, but I really don't want to! Lets please get back to business at hand.

It means that I will listen to everyone, and make a decision made on multiple opinions. I have had a lot of people PM me telling me they like the Race Section, and with the people being a pain, that I should just get rid of them because they are tired or seeing the site brought down by them.

Point is.... I am listening, but not just one rant makes a change!

Also, for the most part.... If you don't like a section, don't go there!

Yer kidding me right ?... nothing has changed, just the names. This site has been "over moderated" for a very long time.

My take is it is a "free site" if you don't like it find the door it's standing wide open.

I understand what you are saying, but my intention is to provide as much possible space for different needs and desires for ALL users, not just the older members.... however I do keep that in mind. I don't plan on it growing again anytime soon! The only section I don't have anything to do with is the Site Sponsors....

However, keep in mind that those people aren't here for advice, but rather to put up money which keeps this a free site.

I don't know of a way to make the topics minimize, but like say.... I don't plan for it to grow anytime soon. I added the Race stuff, because it would get lost in the general street/strip type stuff and the questions wouldn't get answered. I was asked by about 10 people for the 4x4 HD stuff, and I figured that it was ok for them to have a place.

Cale,
I said nothing about going to another place or said you're doing anything wrong. For the record , I am a Mod on "another" Ford website ( HC50), and know what a thankless job it is.. Walking a tightrope isn't any fun..
What I WAS pointing out is... that Charlie asked a question and all he asked for is an answer. People respond to his question and lo and behold, the thread gets locked before Charlie can respond.. Is that all it takes now-a-days over here ??? I'd be willing to bet Charlie's question was not meant to "keep things stirred up". But a honest question , only looking for an honest answer.. Maybe he was trying to recruit a sponsor for the tech Seminar or maybe even the Bash ??
Then, someone posts a thread on it being locked, AND that one gets locked..That was the point of my thread..

Then I admire and highly respect your grandfather, but as most people of that era would say... "It's not what you say, it is what you do that determines the kind of man you are"

You are most certainly right about your freedom of speech, however the choices in which you choose to voice those feelings are always going to be of your own intentions. I have the right to say anything, but I must be willing to accept the consiquences of the words I say and the actions I perform, even those of my fingers typing on keys.

I understand, just trying to make a point. The thread is unlocked, and everything is fine. I am trying to draw this show to an end, and hopefully everyone will back off and enjoy themselves like they used to. I believe this site is fundementally the same, and there should be little to no reason to worry.

Well the reason I don't like corporate takeovers such as what happened here is because the ceo actually cares nothing of the little guys except for the $$ he makes off them.

This buyout is a very good example of corporate greed killing America as my grandfather once knew it and fought to keep it free.

We have a foreign company making money off middle class American's. I am sure there is a taxable reason and an exchange rate reason the corporate office is foreign.

I try my best to do my business with American companies because I firmly believe every $ exported has a negative effect on the American worker.

If something does not change and it may be to late ,there will be no Americans with money/jobs to buy anything.


That is the reason for my opinions and honest felt comments on the new ownership of this forum with the fact they have changed a site that was simple and working well . Do you think they care about us little guys honestly. THEY HAVE YOU WORKING FOR THEM FOR FREE.

Its sad when even our websites we communicate on are not american owned.

With all that said I have no personal squabbles with you at all Cale. I congratulate you on all your racing accomplishments and I am sure you are a very stand up guy.

Maybe Aronson the administrator will give Cale Aronson the Super Moderator a warning for stirring the pot. :D

So if Chilly is Paul Blart, Mall Cop, what would that make you Cale????

Meter maid? Beverly Hills Cop?? Judge Reinhold?? Judge Judy???? :confused::confused::D
