    What the hell is the matter with you people?? The thread was locked because of one antagonist that wants to cause problems wherever possible. So because one ot two have problems and want to take it out on the people here, the rest of us have to see locked threads[}]

    Mr. Shaw is the boss of this forum. He alone decides when to lock/delete threads, or ban people- whether you or I like, or agree, with it, or not. This is NOT a place to say whatever you want- you and I are NOT in charge here.

    Enough with the drama already!

      While I agree that there is a difference between a moderator and a terminator, Bob was right to close the thread you hinted at. The thread was starting to get personal. The newsgroups tend to get away and too personal in the attack. Here it's better to leave it as agree to disagree. Some can't do that (and this is no reflection on that post and I'm not attacking anyone ) and things can get overboard in a hurry. It's better to let the newsgroups deal with extreme debate.

          This is a moderated forum and like it or not the moderator has the right and responsibility to lock topics when things wander completely off topic ie political/religious or start becoming personal attacks. This is a forum for those who enjoy and admire Studebakers...there are other outlets for other discussions.

              Please see "Flipping cars and club goals" farther down the page. It is a shame that some people are fixated on their own agenda's rather than an intelligent discussion of Studebakers. Only after an individual failed to heed Mr. Shaw's warning was the topic locked down. [xx(]

              The rules of the forum are very clear but at times people seem to think that they fall outside the parameters. In those instances Mr. Shaw has to use his judgment as to whether the conversation has drifted too far or the attacks have become personal. Unfortunately, it appears to be the same unhappy people over and over ......

                The moderated Forum works well for most of us. Observe a few simple guidelines and everything is fine. Those that don't like that "dictatorship" should go back to the unmoderated newsgroup and have a ball.

                    It is a place for expressing ones opinion and offering information on Studebaker and related subjects.

                    It is not a place for letters to the editor or flame other people.
                    There are rules posted for participating on this forum.

                    If you cant follow the rules, then there is always alt.autos.studebaker
                    but its a lonely place now because of the flame wars of years past.

                    Most people abandoned it because of in recent years few posts were related to Studebakers.
                    Politics you can get anywhere. Here is for Studebakers.
                    The moderator's job is a thankless one but necessary.
                    But not entirely thankless, cause I thank him for his efforts.

                      Probably one of the toughest part of being the moderator-is having to decide when to lock a topic,and Mr Shaw has probably been complimented a thousand times for the great job he does.We're here to talk about Studebakers,we have a new stove hugger forum to go to OT topics,which I really like!
                      We really don't need the flame wars,personal attacks,attacks on our valuable vendors,ETC to have a good time.
                      Want to rant?-As has been said-go to the NG.-Unmoderated,have a ball!

                          I think we need to step back and thank Bob for doing a great job at herding cats. The tread had over 100 posts, most everyone had expressed both sides of the argument, and it was drifting away from a discussion of selling/not selling into charges of illegal and immoral acts for crying out loud.
                          I'm glad he ended it when he did, and before someone went off the deep end. Bob did ask politely to just let it die a natural death and was challenged about it. Like most of us, Bob can't make everyone happy, but he's doing the best he can to keep the forum civil.
                          On the News Group, I experienced being called everything in the book in more then one discussion. I had had my auctions sabotaged, and was reported to zoning from out of state because of "discussions" that went out of control and that's why I quit posting to that tread.

                            I like your license plate but it looks too close to the Il. Can you put some spaces between the Il and the photo?

                            I too agree with Jim. No personal attacks! Bob Shaw is doing his job, and he does it well.

                              And,by the way,this whole topic is off topic [OT] and should have been posted in the stove huggers forum.-[^]
