Thank you Ryan. I stopped coming here over a year ago because of the crude and vindictive comments. Though I don't post, I tried to read every post to continue to learn.

I am fairly new to the forum and the first thing I noticed that on the For Sale forum some people update their advertisements almost daily...so their advertisements are on the top almost every day..... I usually only read the first page...and see their stuff every day..sounds a bit unfair... same guys every day...must be pro's

Isn't it sad that grown-ups need to be told to be polite.
Thanks Ryan for calling out those in need of correction.

I have owned my 28 AR roadster for 63 years .As second owner This car is till like new .I just finished a 30 Fordor that I bought from a little old Lady in 1959 ,no rust but needed all new wood .I think Ford used 8 different kinds and mine got the soft wood. Without a site like this I would have never got it done .It will be a vary hi point car.now I have some other valuable cars but they don't get the same attention as the As The information that one can get from this site is Priceless .Thank's George

Ryan: Great news from you. What some of these offenders who are have good Ford knowledge, MUST remember or LEARN, "If you are smarter than everyone else, NEVER let them know it." Best regards and keep up your good work. Jim Langley...

Thanks Ryan for ousting another one. Infiltrated I believe. Nothing but negative post. Just one more to go.

Ironically, some of the people complaining on that thread are the same people that are causing issues. Generally speaking, it's a huge mess... and I'm to blame. I just haven't done a good enough job getting rid of users that are destructive to the community. Today, I'm hoping to get back on the right track.

So, I'm introducing a new rule or protocol for dealing with users that just can't manage to post politely. It's a typical three strike rule. Essentially, a user that posts without manners will be banned for one week. A second offense and they will be banned for a month. A third offense and they will be banned permanently. Automatic bans will also be used for users that are obviously trying to cause problems for either the forum or a specific user.

We will give no special consideration for users with large post counts or specialized Ford Knowledge or anything else. It's a black and white deal.

Be nice or don't post.

***

I need help however... If someone posts something derogatory towards you, don't respond (if you further instigate the problem, you could be banned as well) - instead, use the report button. Help us weed out the people that are being so disruptive. We really need the help fellas...

Oh... and fellas... opinions are fine. However, if you can't post your opinion without bagging on someone else's you need to keep your opinion to yourself. Drama simply isn't welcomed here guys.... under ANY circumstance.

***

This is a fluid deal too. I'm working to clean the joint up and my strategies might fluctuate, but the general message will not.

Thanks fellas... and sorry for all the trouble,

Ryan
Thank you sir for putting up with us and for providing good oversight. I believe we should go back and restore the standards of civility that the cars we are working with represented "back in the day".


Lets truly take a step back and think about what we are doing and saying before we just jump in the fray. It would serve us well as human beings and promoters of a simpler time and pace of life.


What say you?


Thanks -


Be well -


SHEC = Chris
