    Any mods left here that can fix the troll/spammer/secondary screename guys that keep popping up here. How is it a troll is granted PM access with 9 posts, yet legit members have to wait the required 50?
    A moderator had to approve the name and authorize PM capability to promote this troll. Whoever it is needs their mod privileges revoked if they haven't already been! Have a feeling that's the case here ;)
    Crap like this is running this forum into the ground. :mad:
    Sincerely,
    An old school member that hates to see this forum disappear like the rest

    Lets take a look at this


    With all that said it doesn't mean shit to any of us. We all post under whatever this new environment is. So tell me, what kind of environment do you want. the ekool environment, where he systematically banned anyone that that crossed a line ( a line that moved every day), or an environment like Patrick set up or something in between

    Tell me :dontknow:

    You have to post it here. if you PM me, I will delete it without reading

    Every single new member has NO PM privileges! It's always been this way! You say it's gone back to some other rules? I've never seen it change? Ask any new member here. They cannot and never have been able to PM without 50 post to ensure they weren't spam! But somehow a troll with a derogatory screenname pops up and automatically has PM privileges? A mod had to approve that! Now based on what your saying any new member can PM, post in sale ads, etc? Nope, never been that way. Not that I recall anyways. But Scotlikscock somehow is approved even though out of 9 posts, half of them attack me? Yeah that's a new values member for sure! :mad:
    Jeff I consider you a valued member of this forum and for you to say this is ok baffles me? Yes IP addresses of secondary screennames or trolls were checked and found and deleted and primary screename was banned.
    Ask Dom, Hank or any of the other IP address game players that were banned.
    This has nothing to do with feelings, it has to do with what's just and right. A little common sense if you will.
    So suddenly a new 9 post having troll comes on with derogatory screename toward myself, and post attacking me, yet it's cool?
    Do go into detail how you as a mod think this is ok!

    Scott,
    So you want a rule that states

    "Using a screen name that a current Member does not like (for whatever reason), it must be deleted or changed"

    No but I think this screename is a bit different Jeff. Don't you think? Apparently you just find it amusing so you let it ride. Gotcha
    Oh and here's a new member that cannot PM or post for sale ads, just like any other new member here. Funny that the troll posted on same thread ;)

    I remember the good ol days! Everyone (well most) wore a set of leathers and didn't mind a little road rash and it was fun!! No Political Correctness required, etc. Nowdays everyone is so afraid of their little feelers getting hurt, they turned in their leathers for leotards, panties and a UNIsex bathroom ?!?!?!?

    Ladies, we need to dawn our leathers again and move on! :rock: :chain: :rock: :chain:

    If it wasn't for the B.S., what would this place be?? These trucks are 10+ years old.......


    At least Jeff will use the shovel when required!

    I see no reason why "spraypaint" can't PM (if thats who you are referring to)


    Wow... didn't know you are the only Scott on the planet. Now if they had put Venomous1 Racing (additional words) in a screen name, yes it would have been banned. Great, now I have to deal with banning that combo in the coming days too

    Thanks

    I also see you name is in bold now, earlier it was not. The bold shows one is full access. Looking at your account, I could not see why it was not showing bold even with all the other markers indicating you were.

    Your opinion is as valid as the next

    We had freezing rain and snow last night, in that order. Always a pleasure to brush snow off you vehicle only to find a layer of ice underneath!

    I keep mine protected with a stock layer of dealer dirt! Makes for a nice patina and eliminates that problem completely! LOL :dontknow: :burnout:
