I notice that you don't dispute the other part of my post.

It doesn't really matter since this is fruitless (and I have to go to a Dr. appointment )

Thanks for the tip. I've never heard of that forum before, so I guess I have some exploring to do.

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.
Very true...I guess I'm lazy and don't like change, I've been hanging around here since '04, sad to see this place and the regulars disolve out. It's not for a lack of wanting to join the community elsewhere, its that I don't know where this elsewhere you speak of is! shoot me an invitation but I'll only go if there's a parrot smiley...

Truth though, it is sad to see e36 section of m3f go to hell

I got on Nick's case for removing the stuff when he did. I thought he should have waited a few days to let things cool down, and let the powers that be get to the bottom of the situation and "fix" things.

To date I have not heard anything from the powers, and, if i was in Nick's shoes and as calm as I want him to be, at this point I would do what he did.

I think Nick should have waited to do what he did. I also think the powers that be should have come up with a solution by now. If the powers that run the community don't show that they care about the community, why should the community members care?

Like a chain smoker who's been wanting to quit, I've been wanting to quit car forums. With this and the upcoming motions I have to prepare and interrogitories, etc. together with seeing that a lot of friends on another forum have moved on, this is a good time to quit a few forums and focus on the important things i've been focusing on for the last year.

It's a double standard what happened... much less moderators should be held to a higher degree of scrutiny with meeting forums rules and regs. Clearly Rez is above and beyond the rules of this forum and the rest of the mods don't care to correct this issue.

Jon was in the wrong... as was Rez. Only Jon has been affected... go figure.
