    Whats going on at Fchat when I post a reply in reference to Carbondesfchatposterboy " Des would need to be able to get a credit card first" and it gets deleted? Citing it vulgar? Are you kidding me? Especially when there are other remarks posted throughout by Posterboy himself?

    Do we have mods here with their heads up Carbondescharitycase's a$$?

    There's definitely multiple standards here. Allan's on a hit list, while Dan gets a free ride most of the time.

    At a bare minimum, the mods should be required to identify themselves when they delete/modify posts or threads

    I think Allan has a point. One problem with moderators will always be inconsistancy in application. Yeah, Alan was way-over-the top when he first joined us, but I like to think that he has matured now that he has entered junior high (just kidding there Allan). While I personally find flame wars boring and skip them when given a chance, I have caught a little bit of this current round between Allan and Carbon. Me thinks that if you are going to pull Allan then you need also to yank Carbon's chain.

    But again, the experience on older and bigger boards is that Moderators, however well intended, are problematic.

    I didn't know this was a problem. Thanks for the post, I'll discus this with the moderators. I'll remind them to leave a message if anything is moderated.

    Damn Allan, you're too fast. After reading your last post, I might have to take this back!

    The point is it doesn't matter if its one thread offensive to one person, or multiple threads to a lot of people, the line in the sand some posts apparently cross must be hastily drawn on an Etch-a-sketch.

    Mods are new. Mods need time to adjust. Most of all, mods must not have knee jerk reactions and we're calling them on it.

    Ok who went in and changed my post to "Happy Now" ?

    Fact of the matter is Rob personally said that links to porn where ok. I posted a link, and Charitycase reported it to his buttbuddy and had the thread pulled.

    Maybe next time ill post a link to 4 dudes pulling on each others twinkys first to keep Charitycase occupied.

    I just checked the moderator log and for 1,800-2,000 posts a day, there isn't much moderation going on. Here's the only moderation the past 2 days, this includes the claim that "Happy Now?" was put in by someone else, if it was it would be in the moderator log.

    Would everyone be happier if I posted the moderator log once a week or so? I think some of y'all are imagining ****. There's really not much going on.

    If a user is causing problems by claiming they're being moderated when they're actually editing the post themselves I will ban them.

    Seems like FerrariChat got bought out by ClearChannel Communications.

    I'm talking about the constant, repetitive yammering the two of you are doing. He posts links to some damn wierd stuff. You're a self-righteous politically correct snob. Fine, you two are incompatible. Do you really think the rest of us give a plugged nickle about your little pissing match? Take it to email, neither of you are gaining friends with the constant noise.

    But sadly necessary. Let's face it, while most of us old farts may find some of this banter to be mildly assuming at times, it grows old quickly. If if keeps up, we stop coming back to F-Chat, and once guys like Napolis and Old Guy stop posting, well I stop looking.

    We need to find some higher ground where it is okay to joke and kid a little bit, and maybe even show some dirty pictures if that helps some of you get through the night, but the main events need to be posts about things that car guys are interested in, you know, about cars.

    The Ferrari v. Lambo rants reminds me of the Ford v. Chevy stuff of my day. It's fun up to a point, but then it gets boring.

    Say good nite, Gracie -- where ever you are
