      what do you get when you put a bunch of guys in a place, throw in some ignorance, throw in some group think, throw in some big egos, throw in copious amounts of testosterone, and dangle expensive toys in front of their faces?

      all it takes is a combatant paradigm. tough guy 'bad boys' who wanna constantly prove to... who? (themselves) that they occupy some status. weak minded individuals who enforce their twisted vision of a pecking order by hounding anyone they perceive as 'different'. they are truly unhappy people and must 'fortify' their own self image by belittling anyone they can. it is they who will feel the bass in the end, for you live and die by your paradigm, is it not true my brothers? plus it just not a good idea to push some people. know what i mean?

      Oh i agree 100%. I can't tell you how many great people i've met through Vortex at most of the places you've mentioned. And my skin is pretty thick over the 10 yrs me being a member here. Everything i say is being spoken for the new(er) guys that might think it's not BS. It's not all about the attitude's, it's pretty much every aspect. Help someone that needs help, Don't let the thread have 3 replies after 100 views. Be open minded to people with different idea's...maybe people will post their rides more often. We are all here for the samethings. Sure everybody jokes. thats what friends do. Sure we give each other slack. Some people will sit and throw their hand in the air and say "but it's just the internet" when they spend their entire internet time looking through threads. Vortex is full of info. I honestly think if you can't find here, it can't be found. Again, i agree, if you take whats being said here seriously, you have issues but at the same time, If you have to resort to being an ass hole to get attention, you have issues. I also agree that no amount of cracking down will change anything. All i'm saying is the E-thug mentality isn't healthy for the forum.

      And to reply to everyone PM'ing me asking to "just ban" those users in the stance thread:
      It's not that easy. First off, mods CAN'T ban anybody. Secondly, only repeat offenders should be referred to admins for banning.

      Can we have the stance thread back? That is like a daily checkpoint for me and for a lot of other people I'm sure. I know some people in there like to cry and complain about other cars but they should get banned or something instead of other people paying for their mistakes and not having a thread.

      Thanks.

      see, this is EXACTLY what is wrong with this forum. not people posting smart ass replies. nater just said TWO POSTS AGO he would open it back up and there are alreayd people not reading the thread in its entirety. if you removed posts like this, people wouldn't make irrelevant, smart ass replies.

      Is it sad that people come on here to view the same cars over and over after 300 pages and complain to have it opened back up?

      Why?

      So people can post their stupid stock cars, then people bitch at them, then those people bitch back because "stance" isn't just about a lowered car since there are multiple versions of "stance"?

      So people can post the same cars over and over and over again? Can't you just look back through the pages and be happy?

      What made my day were the PM's from people crying about the thread getting locked because of ME when it wasn't only me posting. BOO FREAKIN HOO!!


      It's funny how everyone throws the blame my way when 99% of the time other people post something towards me and when/if I reply to it people start complaining and crying like little kids.
      If you want mods to ban people, why not have them ban the people that initiate the crap in the first place?

      I bet you can't go 3 pages without posting a car that hasn't already been posted on one of the other 299 pages. Sheesh, people act like their lives are over because of it.

      Doesn't have to be a stance thread, does it? Why not just make it "post some mk3s" thread? That way people won't have stupid excuses to complain about how the car is not low enough or the stance is not right, this and that... All of the bashing like that goes on over the internet anyway. How many people at shows go to somebodys car and say "hey dude your car sucks, it's not low enough, wtf is up with all the stickers, etc..."? Nobody. It's all e-thuggin and it's worthless.
      Why can't people just get along and be happy that there are more people like themselves that are into the same car as you. All the hate is just pointless. Let's all get along and be happy.

      Does he have a build thread? I know he had random pictures all over the place but I thought he started a thread of the build on the car. Maybe it was in the air forum and just what he did suspension wise.

      Opened, and title changed. Not JUST a stance thread now but a picture thread. post any pics you want as long as it's related to mk3 cars.

      If you don't like what somebody posts (ie. the car is a POS in your eyes) just don't post. No need to be critical of others in that thread, just let people whore out their cars. We all like to brag about our stuff...even if it's nothing special.

      And please use the report function. Thanks!

      It seems like everyone got their voices heard, moderators and users alike.

      I am going to lock and stick this thread, for reference.

      Again, please feel free to PM me with any issues and they WILL be addressed. I answer all my PMs, so please don't feel like you're wasting your time.

      Thanks, all, for your participation.

      Brad.
