Ya know, the Corvette family is the greatest. I had NO IDEA that the Corvette family came with the car. It seems like the price should have been higher. "1996 black LT4 coupe, comes with a family and 6-speed".:laughing:

We moved the "I got banned" thread to the thread junkyard. That's a good place for it now. And, maybe we could give CF threads a break for a bit.

Make no mistake, digitalcorvettes let the thread continue NOT because we have an issue with CF, Troy or Jim, nor did we as a Corvette site want to knock their credibility or get "digs" in.

We let the thread go simply because you guys (myself included) wanted to talk about what happened to Big Law Man and you wanted to give feedback on another forum (I wanted to hear this too - it gives me things to think about).

The moderators here must make judgment calls based on the "big picture" of what digitalcorvettes is all about (we aren't even SURE what we are about, but people seem to like it). In this case the thread was yanked not because of what said, but where it was headed.... fast.

When you put something out there for the masses (a magazine article, a sculpture, a restaurant, a forum, a post), you WILL get and have to expect feedback. Feedback (good or bad) is part of any relationship and should be listened to and considered; if you don't think so then I think you are in for a rough life.

That said, I think that DC Crew gave valuable feedback in that thread. But, sometimes emotions start to get in the way (I'm guilty of that, ask my wife) and then it's best to stop while you are ahead (or behind).

Let me re-state that digitalcorvettes is YOUR forum. Not mine. I don't say this to be modest... but I am one of 3300 members, exactly how is this place mine? Does Chicago belong to the mayor? No.

It appears that you are with us here to help out your Corvette brothers and sisters ("show the love"), to give each other a fun place to laugh and hang out, and to drink all of the liquor in the lounge. Let's show the rest of the Corvette community that this is the place to be!

Time for a cocktail...

The forum may be 1/3300 yours, but you've made over 1/10 of the posts. I find it funny. Haha.:laughing:

well said,and good job not to panic and lock the thread.i think you let it go more than a fair amount of time.
i disagree about one thing though...
your the creator,you pay the bill's,and no outside vendor's.it's your forum and i for one am glad you created it.You represent all the member's,that's more than just 1/3300.I also like your idea on organizing event's.that's were it help's to have vendor's,but you can put on a great event without them.I'm sorry i won't attend,if i was even close to Illinois i would be at every one.Maybe DC.com can join the next Hot-Rod power tour?

Oh ya,if you need to take a collection for sticker's or shirt's or anything else other's think of,i'm in,just shoot me a P.M.:thumbsup:

Taking money from members screws up everything.

Maxing out your credit card, priceless!

Well said Patrick. Would love to see this forum set the example for what a forum really should be, it has done that so far. With the right people making wise choices about the content, maybe it will stay that way. :cheers: :cheers:
