I have been a member of this web page for a while now, & all I can say is a BIG CONGRATULATIONS on a very informative,well run & DECENT website. I have been checking out some other sites & I will tell you that some I will not return to because of the degregation of some members of the other sites. The language & bad mouthing of peoples opinions &/or vehicle choice is ridiculous.I say once again to MAD MIKE & ALL THE MODERATORS Thanks for a great site!!!!! Keep up the great work!!!!!!

Kinda makes me think of my OLD ( well, headed back anyways ) section's motto:
2nd to none ( it was section 2 )

How's this sound:

2nd Gen Camaros - Second to none.

Catchy ????

Wayne...GOOFY!!! LOL!!

But really, I'm curious...I haven't checked out these other sites I hear about so often, but...what makes this board so different? I don't see the moderators having to do any moderating, because the people here are just all awesome to a man (and woman)...so why are the people on the other boards such sh**s, and not here? HHMMM...curiouser and curiouser.

76,

Age has a great deal to do with it IMHO. I am coming up on my "43rd lap". This board has more than its share of the "over 30" crowd mostly due to the age of the cars we love: 2gens. I love 'em because they were the car to have when I was 21 y/o.

This is not to say that we don't have good, responsible younger members (eg Patgizz), but I stand by my generalization.

Another factor is the low key way we tend to handle problems. Threads which are problematic are whacked early and quietly before most members of the board even know there is a "fight brewing". Offending people get e-mails encouraging them to "see the light". My experience has been that most of the trouble makers simply disappear once they realize that we police this board.

I must agree, this is a great site. I have only been a member for a short time, but i definetly plan on staying a memmber. Good job guys. And to MikeM79, I'm only 16, and I feel that young people can be responsible, but I know where you get your generalization about the youth of today , becuase some are asses

Yep... us "youngins" tend to be a handful from time to time (I'm 26). It's just that people here seem to be more interested in passing around information, than trashtalking. I was able to see that BEFORE I even thought of becoming a member. I just hung around and read for awhile, it's pretty easy to get a feel for what's accepted... and what's not. Personally... I believe knowledge IS POWER!! I'd rather read, and know all that I can about something, than win a battle of wits with someone ten states away.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

Thanks MikeM79.
Never really thought of myself as being "over thirty!"
So at the the age of thirty-one how do you get that one foot out of the grave?
There is no question to what an excellent site this is.
I have learned mountians of info. from here.
Now if I just spent as much time working on my car as I do reading this board, I would damn near be done it by now.

I think there's truth to the age thing but even more I think it's just the atmosphere of this BB and that comes from everyone who posts here. The last thing I ever want to do is wack a post and it doesn't happen very often...so that tells you that MOST folks who frequent here are very mature... that doesn't mean we don't have fun... but we can do it in a good natured way without a lot of profanity!!! Everyone who helps out and all the members who post here have my deepest appreciation!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

bingo mike m79 the demographic for the car we love puts me at 40 laps. ill bet that most of the people on the board are of the same vintage. as for the young unns they learn by example or follow the crowd. plus no one here has time for the bs from up the street...

Judging from some of the other car-oriented boards on the web, this one is far above most in the way that it is operated. Talking of laps and youngsters, I'm on my 47th and am quite impressed with the calmness and willingness to listen to the more "seasoned" members that the younger or less experienced members exhibit. I for one have learned more about my car and cars in general in the last year+ than in all of my "laps". Thanks to all who have helped me and I hope that I can return the favor.

I concur with you all, this is a great site. And a good example that respect and sharing the same intrest can shrink the generation gap. Thanks to all for some great info.
