Hey Fastattack, NOW this has broken down into stupid. One humorous post from me is one thing, but almost 2 pages of "your gay"/"no your gay" is pushing it.

This we'll both agree on.

And Drizzie, rise above. Let your reputation be your response to the ding-dongs. I like you man, and thats all that counts (because I have a meaty forearm.)

And Dale, .org is definatly a different place, and I don't want this to get to that level.

I'm off to Rays to meet the legendary Hector and Mark/Ant from Psi Fi. I'm as excited as a little boy with a pretty new pet.

myfault, Thank you sir. I truly appreciate you stepping up and being level headed. It really shows that you are a real man and can really make a positive difference in these forums. Ignore calisrt he's just messing with ya (somehow I think you know). I hope to be a mod someday I have a knack for defusing situations. I see you have a really nice collection of cars there. The srt was my first an only really fast car. It's my life basicly and this is the first car forum i've been a part of so it's super important tome as I have nowhere else to go to learn how not to blow up my engine. Sorry if it seems like some of us our crying but I really think this is a special place. Well to me anyway. I remember Andrew's passing, when Jean broke into 12s, when samel camel made the first srt-4 video, When Andre was on cruches. All these and other events here have affected me. Made me laugh, cry and cheer. This place means something to me. The people behind the screen names mean something too me. People like to write the Internet off as no big deal but the fact is it is the most powerfull media outlet the world has ever seen. One man can get his message out to the entire world without govt intervention. I stand in awe. This little slice of cyberspace has made it possible for me to ask questions directly to a PVO engineer. In the world of little ol' me that'a huge deal. I believe srtforums is something worth fighting for. If it were to die a slow death from being over run by trolls and people that just don't give a hoot I'd be something worth crying over. Call me a naive sniveling panzy if you want to but that is how I truly feel. May god bless you all and long live srtforums.

I was just playing when I posted that stuff. I know this thread was about how stuff gets out of hand, and I was just giving you an example!

One of the problems that i see here is simply bad advice in some posts, the person has no idea wtf they're talking about and simply gives out bad advice, eventually others follow and all of a sudden this bad advice is correct because some people agreed on it.
Unless you have first hand experience with the question in hand, you should keep you're mouth shut, guessing isnt advice.

I'm thinkin maybe a few more moderaters with slightly more power to ban the assholes(of course you would need at least 2 different mods agreeing to it)

I started these forums with the full intention of letting the community police itself. Perhaps I was wrong in thinking that people could act mature.

Lately, people have been deliberately wasting my time, and other peoples time and starting threads in the wrong sections to do nothing but stir up trouble.

Even the limited rules that are currently enforced are abused (such as the avatar rule)

Do you think its time to become more strict? Does the majority still like the freedom as it stands, or what? Please vote and let me know how you feel.
It's definitely time for a change...but not TOO MUCH change...
The forums just don't have much of the same feel as they used too...maybe it's just the lack of new conversational stuff...which should change soon with the release of Stage 2...

Don't think of anything that is going on with the maturity level of some of the members as a reflection of how you are running things...you're doing a great job in my opinion and I still love it here

I agree that this site should be changed a little to remove the problems that are currently occuring.

I would also like to point out that Thread High-Jacking is not always a bad thing. I seen it called a horrible thing above, in one of the post buried. I know for a fact of 2 threads that were high-jacked that saved people from getting swindled....well almost everyone was saved, someone ignored the warnings and sent money without receiving a part.

I will be awaiting the future changes of SRTForums.........

Just wanted to point out that your poll is flawed. You have the most percentage of people voting for more rules, but the people who don't are split with two very similar questions. Add up the totals for option 2 and 3, and even 4 who you could argue don't want change, and the majority (55%) don't want more rules. Sorry, I didn't have time to read all the posts to find out if that had been brought up already...

I second that, I was just about to post the same point myself ;)

This is my first post on this forum. I am trying to find the best pocket rocket without buying a $30k impreza or evo. I am big on power and noticed that the SRT-4 had the most hp for the least amount of money. So I am getting one soon. I came to this sight to see different performance and style upgrades and look at some nice looking SRT's. As far as ignorant people that like to pick fights? I choose not to pay attention to them because anyone can act ballsy over a PC.
