Just a little rant I had, before I found the way to this section. Since it is hidden now it would be nice if the gloves could come off but.....This was my rant posted in the other section. It has a lot to do with censorship as a whole.

I have looked and searched for a referance as to where they went and can't seem to find it. Are they gone? Did the powers that be decide that if someone moves their mouse into a section called hot topics...must be thick skinned and so on and are offended we needed to get rid of it. Well I guess this site must mimic life. This TV show offends ___________ when they watch it so we need to get rid of it. This ______offends ________ so we need to take it down. Oh, look at __________ do they have to that in public. I can't think of much that does not offend someone. I have a mouse that I can control, a on off knob on my TV and a head that I can turn and look the other way. Bring it back and give me some more adult reading and something to make me think and maybe even change my mind. Don't you miss the people that use to post there. I can now visit this site and in about 2 minutes read the tdi section and move on. If I am wrong and it is still here or you can tell me why please do....I am thick skinned and if I don't want to read it I can move on and leave this site to ya'll the way you like it. Easy as that. Maybe move to Europe.LOL Maxforce

Like I said in the other forums...there are still rules. But they are pretty much the same as the old site.

We had many members that wanted Hot Topics to go away completely and there were a few of us that thought it would be a good compromise to utilize the new features of the latest forum software to separate the hot topics from the regular board...offer it as subscription only so those that have no desire to see it never will - as well as those that choose to subscribe now cannot complain about them because it was their choice.

See - we do listen to the members and try to find a good solution for everyone.

And the best solution was to throw Marvins_dad to the lions and make him moderate this forum ;)

It is still here, you can see it if you want, post in it if you want.

But the nb.org rules still apply and will be enforced.

...and that came as a surprise - one day I looked and I noticed that I had controls to move threads like in my other forums...I backed out looked to see who the mods where on this forum and yelled, "Lions! AAAAAAAaaaaaaa!!!!!!"

It's real easy to be anti-censorship when you don't have to get the complaints from the offended.

I'm anti-censorship. In my personal life, I'm not angel. I curse all the time, I have a porn collection, my friends say I'm a ****, I party way too often, I drink too much, and I spend a lot more time hitting on the college girls in this town than a 29 year old guys really should.

But that's my private life. Here, I'm trying to build a community that will appeal to the masses. The masses don't want to see porn. The masses don't want to see a bunch of cussing. I'm just trying to please the masses. There are a million websites where you can have no-holds-barred debates until you're blue in the face. This isn't one of them, and never will be.

Why? Because most people just want to come here and have a friendly chat about their cars. And THAT is the purpose of this site. It's about the cars. Everything else is just a bonus. And if I let the rants, raves, and name-calling get out of hand, then the people who just want to have a friendly chat about their cars go away, and all of the sudden this site has lost its purpose.
