Wow, those other places sound awesome, you should head there and spread your carb cheer. I mean why waste it on us? I'm sure you'll be so well received, I mean, who doesn't love a carb martyr with nothing good to say about these silly little cars. Let me know when you go so I can free up the user name content22207.

I think seans been pretty tolerent. There have been several snide comments and even "in your face" nonsense who the hell cares threads, that were started just to either start a pissing match or a he said it why cant I? Im not picking on you directly Bill, these are just general observations. Sean aint so bad. His lack of tolerence for electric smokers however...just damn. He has no clue... :)

:poke:Please gentlemen (and ladies if applicable), a modicum of civility. We all know Bill to have his strong opinions and preferences, not to mention his courage to stand up to his convictions and to take on all challengers thereto. Some take exception to this, perhaps rightfully so, but some also see it as an inalienable right.

Conversely, Bill's contributions to solving non-carb related problems or otherwise contributing to the general good of the community is to be commended. I know for one, I have benefited from many of his posts. His research, willingness to share, documentation and first hand experience in many cases is very valuable indeed.

Let Bill have his thread(s), to opine as he would and let those that wish to visit do so. I know for one, when MY threads are jacked or otherwise abused, I too get upset. Let the thread owner set the rules for that thread.

Those who know me might be surprised at my attempted role at peacemaker, but I beg your indulgences. Bill, perhaps any strong negative opinions could be private rather than public? All others, perhaps we could be more sensitive to publicly pushing Bill's buttons to respect a fellow member?

We all have our strengths and weaknesses. In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?"

This is not a "Bill Defense" as I'm sure he neither needs it or wants it. I personally enjoy and benefit from diversity and strive to find the means by which it can thrive without compromising the integrity of the community.

As a mod of another forum I'll add my 2 cents worth.

I am far from moderate, however that does not stop me from seeing through the BS in a forum. Our rules are attack ideas not other members and no 4 letter words.

Now onto the job of moderating itself, it's usually a "NON paid" position, so members should back off the mods or step up and become one if they think they can do a better job. If you have a beef with a mod you should address them via PM or e-mail disagreeing with a mod over his/her actions should never be done in the forum.

Sometimes there is a fine line that a mod must walk, sometimes it is a persons track record that makes a mod act/react to a post or comment.

As a mod you try and please the forum members as much as you can (at least I do) but when the time comes you fall back on this saying: you can't please everyone so you've got to please yourself!"

So if somene is getting on Sean or another mod here either step up and do the job or shut up.

Here's to the mod's, they never get enough credit.

Can you picture Bill as a mod? Every post would be changed to start with, "Because my car isn't carbureated and is a piece of junk..." and conclude withe, "These really are terrible, rolling death traps that pale in quality to even the worst vehicle ever produced by Almighty Ford."

After our most recent discussion in Farrar's thread it think it would go like this:

Day 1: Bill randomly bumbles through the admin control panel inadvertently giving admin rights to everyone.
Day 2: After deciding vBulletin is to hard to understand and make work he closes the forum and implements a postcard correspondence program to exchange technical information. In the begin only 3 folks will buy in but eventually 10's of folks do.

+1 on this. I had the chance to meet up with Bill and a few other owners a month or two back and I have to say he's one of the most interesting people I have met to date. He has a practical everyman's way about him, it shows in a lot of his fixes on his car. Not all of us have a ton of money to throw at our cars and sometimes we have to get creative.

As far as the post from Sean about Bill not choosing to post my question is would you bother to come to the forums if anything you posted had to be okayed by the Gestapo...errr admins? Imagine if a quarter of the board were on this restriction for whatever various reasons there were. This place would look become a ghost town pretty quick.

+1 Yeah and I was there too (even though I'm not an owner) and it was the second time I've been to an event and talked to Bill. He's been nothing but nice to me. It's pretty amazing to see people bashing Bill on the forum when they most likely have never met the guy. He's charismatic and has great advice (especially for a guy like me who doesn't own a DeLorean yet and has questions). He even offered to let me drive his car.

It's a shame because almost everyone I've met who owns a DeLorean is really nice and more than happy to share advice and give helpful tips but you wouldn't know it looking at a thread like this.

Speaking for myself, I read nearly all his posts in order to give the "other opinion" when required. The arguments start when he gets on his soap box, usually heading off in a tangent within a couple of posts.

Someone can be very nice to meet personally, but still as annoying as hell when spouting ill-conceived "opinion" dressed up as fact day and night on the forum.

Here's an idea, if you don't like what Bill says, you feel he's on a soap box, etc etc, skip his posts, it's not hard. If you don't like a song on the radio, change he station. If you don't like what's on TV, turn it off. If you don't like the political and religious thread (on the old site) DON'T GO IN. No one is forcing you to read Bill's ramblings anymore then they are forcing you to read mine,Chad's, Wilson's , Steve's, Sean's , Mike's etc etc. This is a public forum, if you don't like someones post, don't read it. Simple enough.

It's not that simple! Just like you didn't like/agree with what you have seen and expressed it here, people who don't like/agree with other things and say so too. Granted all this is in open discussion, but IMHO, members should do the same in the other sections because one of the main things people come here for is help and new ideas. If someone posts something and another doesn't agree, they SHOULD say so. There is nothing wrong with asking for an explanation and/or pointing out something one feels is missing, or wrong, etc. -- If you didn't know any better, wouldn't you appreciate someone speaking up, especially if it concerned your problem (or thread)? I'm not going to just sit here apathetically while someone unaware falls in a pit or goes on a wild goose chase, AND, I'd hope other "members" would help me from being the cause of it, not to mention I want to learn too!

I don't think so.

Maybe someone can ask him what's going on at the DMA Fall Foliage Tour. He goes every year and at last report was getting the suspension together on one of his DeLoreans so that he could make the trip again this year.

I think he may have actually been banned this time. I talked to him today and it sounded like his account doesn't work anymore.

A while back, Bill told me his account had been "erased from existence" or some such dramatic phrase, but when I looked, his profile was still there, the threads he started were still there, and so were all of his posts and photos. The word on here was that his posts had to be approved by a moderator -- which is quite different from what Bill seemed to think was going on... and, by the way, how the DML still works.

Bill suspects his account has been closed. His user name and password are no longer working. Sean says Bill's account is still active but future posts will be moderated. Thats about all I know.

My guess is that Bill's password got screwed up somehow and he thinks his account is banned since he can't sign in.

It wouldn't be the first time someone in the delorean community lied about their identity.

Someone created a false identity and used it to post stuff on the DML back when James gave away ownership of the DML and joined DMCH.

I don't remember exactly what went on but I do remember a lot of people being upset about something.

Bill knows exactly whats happened and has even posted once since being put on the moderated list. Him thinking or suggesting otherwise is just him trying to drum up attention and pump false drama. If he truly thinks something is wrong with his account he can pm or email or call me, I gave him all my contact info. This thread needs to die now because we are on the cusp of dragging the mess back out when it's been a great few weeks, drama free and if you want to learn more about what Steve is getting at search the DML.
