I hope this does not lead to more reports to you just trying to get others banned.

Maybe along with your 3 strikes rudeness policy and you are out, you could implement the same on reporting.

3 reports with false or unproven facts about someone else and you are out too.

Oh trust me... it most certainly will. I'll deal with it.

Ryan, glad to see these steps being taken. I have not posted on one of the Model T clubs forums for many years because of the same problem there. I have only been on this forum for a couple of years and enjoy it very much. John Iaccino

No One, and I repeat No one! Can 'Bully" me, unless I let them! I've been dealing with those who would have bullied me all my life and I'm seventy two years old. But then I'm Irish and Dutch/Deutch and no one had to teach me to fight back, it was instinctual! Now, there's the problem of my ADHD and not being able to gauge the effect of my words on everyone. I have to be very careful of what I say and write. Everything is self edited before I hit the "send" button. But still some stuff get's through. So if I ever say anything that makes you mad, please write me a private note about it. Say what you want! I can take it. I'm not a snowflake! Chances are I've heard it before!
Thanks, Terry

There's SO MUCH useless B.S. on the Interweb! It's refreshing when someone like Ryan, tries to keep it DECENT & INFORMATIVE!

I think we all could use a bit of decency and it would not hurt any of us to think a bit before we write. It is so easy on the Internet to become a crab or a bully.

The test forum allows you to practice with posting and see how things work, ie quoting, posting photos, changing font.

We also have to make sure our jokes are not taken seriously. Sometimes funny to me is not funny to others. Good work Ryan. This is a five star post ! Wayne
