People like to wander in threads. I figure if it's not hurting anything why do anything? If it gets out of hand, the mods will gently "suggest" and then, if necessary, not so gently "handle".

becasue no one wants to be censored that way. some would take it as a personal attack their post was taken away.

But what does "post nudes" into a serious thread add? There are plenty of places here for that which I check regularly.

On the 370z forum there is 7 of us in off topic, who give each other rep daily. We are the 7 most trusted members in the universe. The rep system means 0.

The community is only what people make it.

All posters need to ask themselves what do they honestly contribute? I’ve been a little mia the last year because I simply have a car that sucks on th highway. I have a kid under 3 and still try to show up as much as I can.

That being said, I sent Mook a message explaining why I didn’t show up to a meet (Luke’s this year) because of last minute work obligation, a courtesy message back would’ve been nice. Js. Not calling you out at all like that Mike I like you a lot, but felt a little shitty.

Rarely happens and the occurrence back in December was previously explained.

Flip side, folks may consider the impact before starting a thread. Not censorship but respect. Example, think twice before starting a racial related thread on this board.

A message where? FB? The last message on FB is from 2/21/17 and it was closing out the conversation. Went back through PMs from 2017 and there isnt one from you....I get messaged all the time on Snap, FB and here, sometimes I miss some....

Kind of unfair to say its shitty if I have no record of a message..

I totally get it. I’m guilty of the same.

I do think some members feel “forgotten” and develop a bit of a bitter attitude. Which sarcasm on the board only fuels that bitterness

My suggestion, have a meet say 3-4 times a year, in different locations. One south, one west, one north and one central. This way everyone feels involved. Just my .02

Orrrrr, 2-3 meets on the same day where everyone drives their cars from one to the next as sort of a mini tour.

I don't think this is answering the original question as much as giving advice/guidelines I'd like all members to follow:

-Don't be shitty. Really, it's not that hard. Have a little respect. Even though we're on the internet, you're still talking with other human beings who you may, in fact, meet at some point.

-Post more! See a cool video? Interesting article? Want life advice? Post up. A new thread is preferred. Don't bury your question in a 1,000-page thread. People won't see it as soon as the page changes. Don't be shy. This forum will only be as active as its members, and this thread has proven there's a lot of interest and still-active members.

Lastly, the racial insensitivity has been covered in-depth, but again, don't be a piece of shit.

Just caught up with this shitstorm because I too was on hiatus for holiday reasons...

But as John has posted 600x in this thread, all this place needs is "Self Moderation."

Think before you post. If it's not something you would say to a buddy, it probably isn't good to post here.

With that said, I have thick skin and can take anything anyone has to dish out, so I am not offended by anything anyone posts in those on-topic threads. Matter of fact, I commonly laugh. I either laugh at what's being posted, or laugh at them and move on.

You have the NWS section for posting / viewing nudes to jack off to. No need for two locations to regularly post nudes to.

Said my piece. Not a mountain worth climbing.

The intertubez. It is full of pron. Why do you need it on here too?

To be honest, since I do most of my viewing here on my work PC, I steer well clear of that section. So it, or the Shoutbox daily threads get completely ignored.

I think it just boggles my mind that if you try to ignore people, you get called out for ignoring them and get labeled. Only for those people to say ignore them.

Catch 22 also makes people say fuck it.

Just use the ignore function of the board.
