    I'm pretty thicked skinned now, so not as sensitive as most users. However, I did do a quick review of his last 50 posts and not a single one of them added any value. They were all attacks on Ferrari owners or individual users. I don't care if you disagree with my actions, it's the way it's going to be. We have 6,000+ users and I believe in the diversity of the board and we need some users to bring reality to our rossa colored glasses. However, someone that offers zero value and only attacks other good users will not be welcomed in our community.

    I'm sure Mako99 will try to reregister under a new name, please let me or other moderators know ASAP if you suspect someone. We'll be careful not to ban anyone that is innocent, but the actions of Mako99 are an example of what won't be tolerated and that's by any user.

    Thanks,
    rob

    Good call IMHO

    People like that detract way too much from this great site.

    It is a tough call. I do not mind people posting who do not like Ferrari so long as their comments are true. Opinions are their own business and they should be allowed to post them.

    Blocking isn't effective most of the time with all the dynamic IP's. I could block one IP from Yahoo and 200 users wouldn't be able to get in.

    Thanks Rob!

    You have no idea how much I hated that guy. He wasn't top on my list though, but very close. Still got a couple of other people like him.

    Good thing about our community is how diverse it is. I'm glad we get some hardcore Ferrari enthusiasts, even though they are somewhat new to the internet. I have many computer 101 sessions, but in my mind these are very valuable users for all their experience.
