Default I annoyed the hell out of mod on CF

Haha, made a thread in the general section about rules threatening our hobby, especially in the EU.

One of the mods thought bad language was used and it was off topic.

I didn't agree that and answered, directly below stating that : "opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one and they all stink".

He didn't like it apparently Got banned for a month.

I will close my membership definately after that month.

The mod must not have voted for Trump then.. I stop visiting CF after it sold to the current owner. Too controlled, as you noted, and too many advertisements. They had videos embedded in the threads. Only troll for Corvette parts there because I do not know where else to go.

Wish there was more action here, where the members understand their cars.

Happy Thanksgiving.

George

Yeah, I used to post more and ask more questions, but my car is 99% finished and most questions I have are about FI or advanced engine tech. I frequent the ms forum or the speedtalk forum more for that reason.

However, technically this forum is more advanced when it comes to restoration/mod information specifically Corvette.

I haven't been there for years. I can't believe they are still so childish.

Apparently so. Don't go over there much either.

However, the trends of power-addictive mods with a trigger heavy finger is something I see on a lot of forums. If they keep up the good work, soon all of these forums will loose their public.

What you already see on CF is that a lot of the more experiences participants are leaving because of it and you get new members without any knowlegde advising other new guys on how to deal with things. Although some of them may actually know a thing or two, I also see a lot of BS flying around.

I have only been to CF, or Digital Vettes either, maybe half a dozen times in the last 5 or so years, and then only searching for posts about a specific subject. What bugs me about both those places is how fast a thread degenerates into yapping or arguing about something that has nothing to do with the original post. Too many people who talk too much just to hear the sound of their own voice.

And yeah, the ads & pop-ups annoy me too.

It may be 'dead' here as far as the amount of 'action', but the folks here are much more thoughtful, knowledgeable, able to stay on topic and willing to discuss rather than argue. And I hate crowds anyway. I'd rather hang out with a few friends in the garage and have quality conversation than go to a noisy crowded bar where you have to yell to be heard over the din of all the bullshitters.
