    We had this poblem back in 03 with the OT Riots. There is
    something unique about the attitude of Viper owners (maybe
    the general Type-A attitude that accompanies the ability to
    purchase a $100k+ car) that makes them feel if they pay
    the $100 membership fee then they should be allowed to say/
    do anything THEY feel is appropriate to the forums. Certianly
    not everyone here feels that way, but it was enough to fracture
    the club into two groups: VCA and VA. I personally think history
    repeated itself recently with the VOA.

    The simple truth is most Viper owners will not pay for an online
    club membership that includes moderation and censorship, and y
    ou cannot have control without moderation. Catch-22.

    The best tool this forum ever incorporated was the "ignore"
    button - one click and you never have to hear from that person
    again. I think it would help if there was a counter under your
    avatar too - "These people are ignoring you" may cut down on
    psudoe-personal attacks if the poster realizes the target cannot
    see the post to read it.
    I drive WAY too fast to be worried about cholesterol.

    But, youre forgetting that the censoring was because this was a professionally based/associated site and had major higher ups visiting and needed to maintain a professional atmosphere. Im not saying you had/have a problem, but the moderation here is a LOT lighter than other places that have paid-for-memberships. Hell, i refuse to join/visit/participate in ANY forum owned by Vertical Scope for that main reason, you CANNOT link to ANY other site because "(they all) compete" with them and they want the ONLY say so when it comes to any links for any product or discussion. And they will even ban you if youre a lifetime paying member. Trust me, this is the first thing i looked for when i came to this site, or else id have never joined and probably would be looking for info in other places and not finding it or hell, not even being able to determine which Viper i should try and look for, mainly cause i didnt really know there were 5 Gen's and they werent all the same!

    If we were all in one room, trust me it would be a lot different, the nasty people would magically be nice, I see it all the time when I meet a loud mouth, they are so nice in person.

    Except for me, I'm always an @$$hole lol. J/K, but I am the same way in person as I am online, you always know youll get the honest truth from me.
