Calling Others Names

In another thread a member here called a friend of mine a name and said my friend should have done something different. My friend was going to join but after I showed him the comment toward him he will not join. I defended my friend here by using some letters toward the member here and was given infraction by moderator Gypsy. WOW ! The other member left another comment about my friend that is inaccurate and that comment needs to be removed.

A few members have complained about YOUR post in that thread and so I was compelled to take action. Get someone to nominate you to be a moderator and then get voted in and you can run this forum the way YOU see fit. Until that time the moderating team in place will just have to do as best it can. We feel it's not really that hard to play nice with others here.

Though that thread is locked, it still stands. Everybody here can still see exactly who said what.

Nothing new here I've seen it time and time again. The only advice I would give you and your friend would be you have to have a thick skin to be on this site. I actually would like to know myself how many people on this site actually restore cars for a living? I'm not saying in a car and a half garage in your backyard. I mean a real shop with bays and clients and vendors that you deal with, just curious.

Really? I think this is one of the friendliest and mature forums I have been on minus the occasional dufus - who is usually a dealt with and a short timer anyway.

I hope it gets worked out Supershifter, you have been here a long time.

It is unfortunate that some members Have more knowledge than another person on here feel it is OK to some way berate them, again this does not go for all the members but there are some that should suspended, but who am I to say I'm not a moderator.

I have more fingers than the number of more edgy posters (of which I can probably be included- sorry) on this forum. It's pretty mild, rules are mostly followed and people behave, the moderators are efficient and not too heavy handed. This forum is like paradise compared to some I've been on. It's not like vintage Mustang guys are known for being abrasive and aggressive. If you're having issues here, try owning an import, Harley-Davidson or late model car- those forums are rough.

Que? What does restoring cars for a living have to do with demonstrating civility toward each other? This is a hobbyist site that was started and run by hobbyists until the founder exercised an exit option and sold it to the current corporate overlords. What does dealing with clients and vendors have to do with any of this? The reason we can afford the hobby (ie. putting $30k into a $20k car) and the tools is we have successful careers and/or businesses (where we deal with clients and vendors) that allow us the pleasure. Look at some of the build threads and you'll see that some of our car and a half garages in the backyard can crank out some great work. FWIW I don't have a car and a half garage in the backyard. I have a two car garage that faces the street. I wish I could build another garage in the backyard...

You still sore about the for sale thread? The way I remember that one was a guy that was relatively new posted what could be a good find but didn't include a price or pics. When asked for a price and pics he got defensive. That's all well and good but nothing says scam like a guy new to the place posting a car with no pics. Look at it from our perspective. There are many here that can afford to drop $25k on the right car. But with no pics we aren't going to bother following up. Were I a pro and trying to sell cars, not just here but anywhere, I'd say "I'm Dave from Desert Rat Retro. Here are my wares, these are my skills". What I wouldn't do is blow into some forum under a handle, tell everyone how long I've been doing it and not provide any pics or a way to vet what I was getting into.

Nothing says scam like a guy not showing pictures and putting a car up for sale on this site? That's pretty funny! For your information the car sold quite quickly and it didn't have anything to do with this site, like I said in previous posts I've been doing this for a very long time I've seen guys who think they know what they're talking about and guys who actually know what they're talking about, the funny thing is if you think this really matters to me "your opinion " that is think again,it doesn't I've made a very nice living buying and selling mustangs primarily, so don't get it twisted I was answering another persons post on here about his friend taking some crap because he maybe didn't do something correctly. I didn't know by me posting my opinions you would get all bent out of shape, like I said before doesn't matter to me I can take or leave the site.

Harrumph! This forum is as or more civilized than the wife's rug hooking forum. Not sure if that's totally a good thing, but it mostly is!

Watch your azz. One of my favorite movies!

That's definitely somebody who does not need restoring!
