Werd.

Anyone who takes this shit seriously is a dumbass. Everyone has huge balls on the internet.

Well, except for the little bitch who sent me an anonymous card in the mail.

It's cool, though. At the time I had just sold a couple of vintage Ferraris and dumped my supermodel girlfriend, so I had extra cash burning a hole and wanting to be spent frivolously. It was either membership or full service at the local rub-n-tug.

Hey Matt, good to see you here.

The Vette? It's a long story. I ended up selling it, it just came to a point when I gave up and had to admit that the car beat me. It was just one thing after another, with no end in sight. After getting screwed by Geoff and ripped off by Lee, that car just seemed cursed.

Why does it bother prospero63 so much that people complain about the CF. That is what this thread is about...he doesn't have to read it...that is the beauty of the internet. We can bitch and moan about IB or CF and we shouldn't be shut up or banned, it's called freedom of speech. Unfortunatly IB is trying to buy your right to speak freely. Too bad that on the net when you squeez there such as the CF we pop-up here and so we complain about the squeez and no one can stop us. F#@K IB [email protected]#K the CF and F#@K anybody who tries to keep me from complaining about them.

Freedom of speech applies only to the government's laws and regulations, not to private business ventures such as DC and CF.

You're free to say what you want, whether it's about IB, CF, work, that's your right. Whoever you say it to is free to argue with you, ban you, fire you, or whatever is within their rights, particularly if they run the place.

I will not quote any comments that have led to the banned accounts, nor will I personally address incorrect and speculative comments made by others as the reason behind the actions.

I personally banned the following members:

JeffVette
CentralCoaster
Bogus

These members expressed their disappointment with the forum in an open thread, and found it amusing in the process. Not one of them was man enough to PM a Moderator or an Administrator to make their feelings known, or to offer a solution to what they perceived as a problem/concern, but instead just created another one.

The drama concerning the takeover by IB (Internet Brands) is old news, and if members this late in the game aren't willing to accept the changes, then they should consider a move to another site.
Snipped for brevity.

Oh, well then bitch over here because after all, everyone on *this* forum wants nothing more than to hear y'all bitch about *another* forum.

Or you could post and enjoy this forum. Wait. That's crazy talk.

Considering this thread has 1,800 views and another similar one has twice that, I'd say you're in the minority. Or at least, the rest of those who don't want to se this here just don't click on it, and therefore, don't see it.

I did bitch there and was promptly banned for life. I bitch here now so that word gets back to the guys still there ( I can no longer tell them myself) that there is a better site where we can still speak our minds freely and without fear of banishment.

By the way I started a thread complaining about a tactic that started being used. The thread was locked and a PM was sent to me telling me that I should not post threads about problems but should PM the moderators. After a number of PMs to moderators and curt and often rude responses I began posting my complaints again. Is that "real man" enough for you?

Again why does it bother you that we bitch over here? It isn't like we are mass-PMing every member of the DC about the problems with the CF. We are comiserating the loss of a site where we had friends and invested many hours of our advise and comments.

My goal here is to get the word out to the guys still on the CF, to come over here so I can start talking to my friends again. And again if you don't like the complaints on this thread...don't read them. I believe that the label of "IB Nazis up to more shananigans" spells out what will be said here so if it offends your constitution don't open the thread again...problem solved.

Of course if you are actualy an IB or CF spy, here to stop the harmfull debate about that shit site....then go f#@k yourself and pass my sentiments on to your handlers. If your not a spy then don't F#@k yourself, and have a drink on me.
