Look what's happening!

The Suzuki/Geo board got shut down because of 3 whacko's that thought they knew everything about everything. They rarely showed any knowledge, just insults. Everyone left.

The mid-sized board is almost shut down now because of 2 doing the same thing - who think the only way to fix something is replace everything in sight! And all their insults if someone else says anything - almost like the pirate bd. Most everyone has left for more intelligent conversation.

The Jeepster board had several individuals that griped about everything - it's almost gone now.

Is that what you all want? For everyone to run off because of 2 nut cases?

Why not just ignore them - either look at their stupid rantings for a laugh, or put them on ignore?

After awhile they'll get tired of not stirring up trouble and go back to aggravating ants on the sidewalk.

Ditto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It always amazes me what people will say on the phone or internet, knowing that they don't have to look you in the eye.

So how about you and JYG give the name calling and belittling people a rest? Quit claiming people don’t know what a diode is and such?

Precisely how I’ve handled it until somebody puts out wrong information then I’ll challenge it and you if you insist upon getting into a flame war.


That was exactly the point I was making about the OT political posts. Banning them ain’t gonna fix nothin’. Yeah, people gripe about ‘em but look at the view counts. How come everybody keeps lookin’ if they don’t wanna see ‘em. I don’t need no stinkin’ ignore button, I’ve got enough will power to ignore what I want without having to tell my computer to hide it from me. I’m also comfortable enough to not get into a tizzy and re-evaluate my entire life if somebody challenges something I’ve believed for 40 years.

How about an end to the flaming? Yeah, I indulged in it too when it got out of hand. You didn’t like it.

How about reviving that ban on name calling that lasted for about 10 days?

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.

My 'Ignore Idiots' button works, so taz is just a blip on the screen now...
Life is SO much nicer here now!...

We'll just have to go back to warning new folks about the two or three that do most of the running off...

To bad we can't have an 'Ignore' button in our signature lines anymore.
That was a handy thing to have!

You mean that hasn't already happened here? I still come here to check on the site on occasion but if you post a tech question, if it gets answered it will likely be a few days. This place is on life support now. I know of 2 state run boards that have more tech and interesting reading daily (not political garbage, people hurling insults, and anti religous postings none of which have any place on this board). Of course that's why I am not much of a contributer any more.

It's sad really, I came to this site a few years ago and there was more info than I could handle. If I had a question it was literlly less than an hour before I had an answer. I used to love this site. I haven't been on here much lately, in fact I've been out of the Jeep scene all together for a bit. It saddens me to come back to this kind of thing.

Guys used to get questions answered in detail,
Now some cranky guy tells them to do a search and shut the f*#k up!
OR,
Some cranky old bastard jumps on them about the question being too basic...
How stupid is that! This is a tech forum, not an 'Advanced Rocket Surgon PhD. level prooving ground for Jeep Theroy...
WTF?

New guys got greetings from nearly everyone and later greetings and a warning about taz...

When you do post something that should be of interest to off roaders, some cranky old bastard tells you to quit whinning or to shut the f#*k up...

I know why it's dying,
& I know who's killing it,
But we still have them here for some reason...
