    This is a perfect example of a useless none entity post that is purely there to goad others into reacting………. I'll probably get a warning I know - but it was your personal insults that helped lead us here fella. You've gone all - sorry, I've apologized……. and now are sitting like the little brat that goads the bullies and waits for them to bitch slap him before running off to cry to teacher about it. GROW UP MAN!
    Take a step back from the keyboard and chill the fuck out!
     
     
    EDIT - and the term 'lads' - is the perfect example of the 'its us or them ain't it fellas attitude that fucking SUCKS DONKEY WANG
     
    2nd edit - sorry - Grumpius - I know you do car stuff...…. go do it - then post it - seriously fella - we'd appreciate that a hell of a lot mor than the above… I hope you get my drift …

    Which proves that it can be done, if people behave like adults.
     
    I've been a member of this community for about 8 years now, I'd much prefer to stay here. Also, I feel morally obliged to give the whining cunts both barrels...
     
     
     
    It's certainly not a democracy at the moment. I'm not blaming the mods for this, but if they organised A POLL about how people wanted the site to be run then they wouldn't have to worry about people whining to them all the time... the majority will have spoken.
     
    Unless it ends up like a certain word beginning with B, of course... lol

    I am getting really fucking sick of the Professionally Offended getting illuviated man-cunts about stuff they could just fucking ignore.
     
    Simply put, these perennially-whining tossers are ruining the forum. If it's got to the point where we can't even discuss an automotive factory closure (ffs!) because it might stray too close to the strictly forbidden subject of politics, then this place has run its course.
     
    Mods, can you start naming & shaming these hand-wringing CUNTS so we can post them many, many Argos catalogues please? Ta muchly.

    The definition of a fall out seems to have changed too.
     
    Threads are being locked now because "we can see where this is going to end up". That's wrong IMO.
     
    Let it go to shit. Most people will back off, people who like the argument will argue and perhaps someone will flounce. It's only going to affect other parts of the forum if people let it. And that's the perfect time to bring out the warning/ban hammer.

    OK then, I have a suggestion.
     
    Revoke the no politics, no religion, etc. rule - it doesn't work, and forces people into a deeply unrealistic minefield of self-policing with no strictly-defined borders... then we mention the naughty subject matter in the thread title, e.g. "CAUTION contains politics" so that these egregious perma-huffers don't get hot under their collars? You know, then they could just IGNORE THE FUCKING THREAD.
     
    Then we could get back to dealing with stuff like we used to do, without having these pathetic, dripping-wet petals constantly sighing and tutting and demanding that we all conform to their peevish Victorian social standards.
     
    Or maybe we could create an entirely new part of the forum for them, with nice primary-colour pictures of Red cars, and Blue cars, and with all the edges covered in strips of foam so they don't bang their little heads when having a tantrum? Oh, and there'll be strictly no naughty words in there, of course. They must be protected.

    So the interesting, informative Honda Swindon thread is locked on the basis that someone twice (Bradders59) stated that 'politics is banned' with no other contribution to a thread, ignores a reasoned response and it's locked? 
     
    Feck me lads, everything is touched by politics in some way. It's a discussion about a car plant/plants - in the same way that a discussion on house prices is fucking related to fucking politics.

    I really am at a loss to understand the decisions made. Genuinely puzzled. It seems to be that there is a threshold for number of complaints after which a thread gets locked, a person banned, a subject taboo. And it seems that people know it and take advantage. I have some limited experience and do understand how difficult it can be. But this? No.

    I like the open forum.
     
    So that cancels that out.
     
     
    Who chooses? Apparently loads of people like it and use it.
     
    Nobody has to read it and pretty much the only time it spills over on this side is when a non car topic is locked or deleted on the *non car* forum.

    It is a complete fucking joke right now, being linked to another forum by a mod is not really the way forwards, I think some of the people in charge really need to take a step back and see what the majority of members actually want out of this forum, because in its present state and direction its on a self destruct course, it really is going to end like the humourless pit that is retro rides.
     
    Stifling adult discussion about something which is massively important to most of the population is really really annoying, I want to be able to discuss things with like minded folk, which we are all capable of doing on here but no, we have to be treated like fucking infants.

    What? A offensive typeface? You sir, are shitting me?
     
    As in - 'What?'
     
    I'm not editing anything because someone is offended. I'm sure I can tell (reasonably) the difference between offensive and offended. It's a shame more people can't. Feel free to be offended by that (anyone,not BI) - you won't wake up in the morning with Leprosy™
     
    They are all crazy. And I'm sure they think the same about us and long may it continue.

    I'm of the opinion a private plate is the biggest waste of money possible. People begrudge buying decent tyres but are happy to spiff a load of money on some random collection of letters that kinda vaguely spells something if you make a "7" into a "T" or some similar nonsense.

    Ball joint and track rod end changed. Said he couldn't work out where the noise was from so he cut open the ball joint, sprayed it and it was quieter so he changed it.
     
    Parts and about 4 hours £95.
