I am going to leave this up at least for the rest of the night. I deleted the OP`s other thread because I know what would have happened. By morning there would have been 15 pages with folks flaming each other over engine choices. I don`t make the site rules, I just enforce them. Otherwise there would be complete anarchy as on some other sites.
Most folks know that there are site rules here, but as most places, a lot of people either don`t read them, or don`t care. Enforcing the rules is not being a forum Nazi, its just keeping the site a place where enthusiasts can come, exchange ideas & have fun. We don`t just out & out ban a member for an infraction. It can be done, but everyone is entitled to a mistake & we give warnings. The OP in this case has two pages of warnings from different moderators. Some folks just have suicidal tendencies (metaphorically speaking), & just go out of their way to get kicked off a site. I don`t have admin powers to permaban a member, but trust me, I can & do go back to really offensive members & extend their "time out" ban for as long as needed. I can/will enforce the rules here to try to keep this site a place where people will want to come & enjoy their cars, & not a place where there is a bunch of cliques & others are looked down on because of what they drive. This is also a family oriented site, where you can for the most part, have your children learn about this American icon- the Ford Mustang. Sorry for the long rant, & I have probably forgot a few things, but I will post a thread with the site rules so everyone can be refreshed.
In closing, I thank those members who support us (the moderators) we appreciate it & as stated we all do this for free. I am one of the few that are working the site these days, so if I miss anything, or if any member has a problem with something I do, feel free to PM me. I am not infallible, never said I was. Those who choose not to follow the rules are cordially & respectfully invited to move on to greener pastures. It seems that there are new members joining every day, so we want to make this a place they want to keep coming back to.
