Re: A question for the moderators

The original thread and this one really just seems like an effort to announce your special new toy. It's great and all that, but just announce it. Don't start a thread about a car that you won't name but that hasn't been released yet but will be at a car show etc etc You know people are going to ask, which they immediately did, and you immediately answered. It's just boring man. Hence the zzzz's
That's really quite funny. Why would I need to announce anything to a forum I hardly ever post on and where I know virtually nobody?

Instead of your odd theories, maybe, perhaps, my original post was exactly what it was, a polite requests for advice. And my second thread was also just what it was. The majority of people who responded seemed to think so. Not you though. If it bores you, nothing stopping you not getting involved, is there?

Well you know some people, eyebeeb for a start, but I assume you just had to tell someone....anyone. But if you're right, then thanks for using the community to get your answers and then disappear for another few months until you need something else. We like people like you.

Asked and answered. And there's no one who can't find your precious thread in Off Topic, which is, by the way, twice the size and twice as visited as transportation.

It bores me, but it doesn't just bore me. It also irritates me, as much as an odd little post from an odd little man can. You asked a question, got your answers, the thread was moved by a hard working mod team and you decide to kick up a fuss (this isn't polite: WTF, thread moved. I give up. Haven't people got lives to lead.). You seem to have leeched enough for one evening, right?

Re: A question for the moderators, re. where to post a new thread

On that note, I'd like to redirect the casual reader to previous Mod replies and be reassured that we strive to keep everybody happy all the time.

Re: A question for the moderators, re. where to post a new thread

I've taken the liberty of re-opening this to put links to a post in the 'original' Thread which gives a bit more information and shows how easily things can 'go off course'.

The original Thread which was moved and then replaced

The reason behind the move and the misunderstanding about the 'PM' and the absence of a reply to it.
