You're set in your ways and nothing in this world is going to change your attitude or your viewpoints. I accept that, and it's a lost cause arguing with you. In contrast, still have a lot of learning and growing to do, and part of that is being smart enough to be humble. Another part is not making recurring mistakes. Communicating with you is a mistake.

If you're so bent out of shape about me pulling a few posts down, maybe you should take the time to put something comparable together to replace them.

Best of luck trying to accomplish whatever it is you're trying to accomplish. I won't be hitting "view post" again.
I dont know why you think I am trying to accomplish anything.
nothing in this world is going to change your attitude or your viewpoints My views change regularly. For as long as I can remember I've called things as I see them. I also don't hold grudges. Politics makes strange bedfellows. Your adversary today may be your best friend tomorrow.
still have a lot of learning and growing to do, and part of that is being smart enough to be humble.
The day I stop learning and growing is the day I stop breathing. Instead of beating on me and preaching how smart and humble you are, do something about it. money talks, BS walks. Put the threads back together and show Sirius that you are a serious member of this community and even if he doesn't allow Jon back, and you walk away you are humble and mature enough not to spite Sirius and the other members of the community you put so much time and effort into building. Be the bigger man.

not spiting Serious... spiting M3F as a whole to show them how "WRONG" they are.

Pulling whatever WE post is our choice. It's our thoughts/knowledge/etc. We can post it where we feel it will serve the best purpose...

all you guys are doing is killing off the e36 section of m3f...the vast majority of site users are in the e46 section anyhow, so nothing is going to change with the management of this site b/c the impact of a less-valuable e36 section will be a non-event

all you guys pulling the wealth of knowledge that has accumulated here are doing no service to the e36 m3 community and your "silent" protest likely isn't going to ever yield the results you want...all you're doing is killing the section...it's going to be like "rides and styling" in here.

and if you guys are walking the walk, I guess this will fall on def ears...if you do read this, then man up to your threats and never visit the site again

yes it is your thoughts, etc. yes you can post it where you want. yes you should give sirius a chance before pulling everything off. that's all. if after 3 days from when he locked your original thread nothing is done then I am right behind you.

you and i get our checks from the same place. you know how the system works, how nothing happens with the snap of a finger.

Wait a minute.

I am new to e36 M3's and about to buy one, and now one of the most valuable resources on the web is gone. Instead of reading valuable information, I routinely read the phrase "removed." This is very frustrating not just because the information is not there, but because it once was, and has subsequently been removed. I am a bit unclear as to why this happened. So, I guess I'll have to go somewhere else...

Yes, many of the OG's of this section have moved due to a dispute with the Mods/Admins, so all of their info has been removed and most has been relocated to DTMPower.net. The specific one here can be found there as well.

Mike,

Visiting the site is different than not sharing information. We know that nothing will likely be done as a result of this but our e36 community is different than any of the others and if we can't have that here then we will go to a place that welcomes us and allows us to be as we are. So I don't think this is as much about making a statement as some make it out to be. I'm bummed to hear you say that though because I consider you a part of that community as well but it sounds like you aren't coming with us.

I have left my old posts up but, at least for now, I won't be making any new ones.

The reality of the situation is that we have two groups who feel that the rules shouldn't apply to them: some of the Mods and some of the regulars. It's a clash of egos and in the end everyone on both sides loses.

I don't see how the regulars lose. We just went somewhere else and are now enjoying things.
