Some of the members on this site, need to stop asking for a thread to be locked just because you don't like what it says......
I think this would be a very boring site and you would have a lot less members if no one ever complained or said something that you didn't agree with!!!!
I enjoy looking at everyones opinion, and if I don't agree with it, I will post my reply. Remember this is a free country with freedom of speech, and I like it that way....
And if I did agree with some of the members about this issue, I wouldn't be on the site now posting my own thread now...
So please allow everyone to post their feelings, so I have something to B***H
about and I can pick on them, and give the hubby a break!!!!

Why I suggested the "LOAD OF CR*P" thread be locked was to keep from accidently coming to the top, such as a member accidently asking a question about bed carpeting on the "LOAD OF CR*P" thread.

I too believe in freedom of speach and am not asking to have anything erased from it.I think the thread has vented out the "LOAD OF CR*P" and thats a good thing.

Sorry you took my sugestion in the wrong context.

I'm the poster-child for the locked threads. Every time I say something that offends GM, their product, someone here on the board, etc, my thread gets locked. One of my IDs got banned another disappeared due to technical problems. Administrators here think that I really hate the SSR since I had plans to sell it for a profit but changed my mind once I got to drive the beauty. So I am usually considered as a traitor. The truth is that I love the SSR in general concept but have issues about the power, marketing and GM treatment of us loyal customers. If we just kept praising the SSR and GM, this site, as mentioned by another here, would be the most boring site ever.

I appreciate what the owner and the moderators of this site have done for all of us. But you have to realize that these kinds of boards are all over the Internet. I literally belong to over 20 with different subjects (5 of them are car related). The lively ones are usually the ones that the members can freely post their ideas and opinions. Once again the owner has the right to do whatever he wants with the site but keep in mind that the life of the board comes from the members. If there are no members, the board would be useless. By alienating members due to strict censorship, you will achieve that in no time.

No one is for profanity and abuse of the other members. The abusive members should be banned and extreme profanity should be erased since it takes away from the usefulness of the site. But to close a thread or erase a post because someone tried to express themselves by printing @#$% instead of printing the real curse word is taking it a bit far. Worse than that is to close or erase a thread because you don't agree with the subject matter even though there is no profanity involved. You want to ask members not to discuss politics? FINE. Ban political slogans in a a very political/election year? FINE. But remember you can't ban everything or people will be bored. I like to think that we are all of friends here and can discuss other things than just the SSR. This happens on other boards too, people come to discuss one thing they have in common, but talk about everyday life issues too. But again that is the choice for the owner to make, I'm just making suggestions...


Keep up the good work but try to be a bit hands off and let the members share their ideas. We are all adults here and all have heard a curse word or two. I doubt anyone would be really offended. If you are easily offended maybe we should have a "easily offended, stay away" segment so some of us potty mouths can communicate. :)

Again, please don't chastise me for my post. I am not advocating the use of the F word or any other profanities. But closing my thread because I joked about " I hate this car" in my title was a bit too much. There were more than one member who wanted that thread closed. Ridiculous if you asked me....

We want everyone's input...

I believe that all the threads truly become a part of our members forum to be shared with all. Everyone has a right to their own opinions, comments and input. Only on a very rare occasion should a thread actually be closed.

If it becomes way out of line where bashing, ranting and offensive statements start to take over that thread where little more good can come out of it then it will be closed down.

Threads do need to be locked on occasion. They are not locked for someone expressing an opinion. More often a thread needs to be locked it tempers flare and name calling begins. Luckily that is not often on this site. :cheers

I just locked the load of crap thread though since the original poster edited his first post and told us all to Go *$&% ourselves. I think it was time to close that thread. :)

The problem is that it's those threads that get the most posts, and make this site interesting to come to every day. I've been coming here almost every day, and sometimes days go by with no more than a few posts. Then suddenly a two page thread appears, but when I try to post to it it's been locked.

Plus, prospective buyers should be told the negative aspects of buying an SSR. An unhappy buyer is the worse advertising the SSR can get. The fact of the matter is that these vehicles do lose a lot of their value when you drive it off the lot. Since I knew that before I purchased, it's not going to be something I can complain about.

The other thing is, when a thread is locked because a vendor is being, perhaps unreasonably, complained about, it not only makes the vendor look bad but also eliminates the free advertising that vendor is getting.

I posted to that thread. You just made that contribution to this site meaningless.

Nothing in that thread made it worthy of lockdown EXCEPT the "go **** yourself's" line. Sounded to me like a parting shot.
