Default Hear Me Out Admin...

Would it be stupid to get rid of "Kill Stories" and add "At the Track," or something of that nature. I feel that it would bring far less bull onto here and we could even try not to call everyone with a Honda a ricer. Plus we could get serious track times and perhaps some interesting stories about past vehicles, etc. And it'* all legal...

We're a bit to respectable for that...

I think it would be something to consider.

I like the idea also. I think it is a very good idea. It sounds like something the Administrators could discuss to me.

so you dont like my idea?? seriously, on every board that you check out, there will always be someone that feels that the "kill" or whatever is just too far fetched to believe, even from the nicest people... you all have to admit that sometimes you read some story that you want to believe but just know it'* a crock... not trying to sound like an *** (again)... just askin to hear me out

I like both ideas, honestly. Kill Stories was interesting for a while, but when people quit just sitting at thier desk and thinking "Oh yeah, right..." and decided they had to submit it as a post, I kinda quit reading.

As not all of us have the time or cars to go to the track, or even a track to go to, Kill Stories is still useful. Even I get the occasional kill once in a while when someone ticks me off. The problem is the Admin time it takes to get rid of the offensive retorts.

Since the site is getting so much bigger, people Googling for thier cars are lioable to get pointed towards kill stories here. If or when Kill Stories comes back, those posting thier kills should consider how they are describing them. Starting off bashing the loser/prey is bound to invite less than positive replies. We need to remember that a bit of maturity is needed in reporting a kill, not just in replying to it.

Babble mode off

John...your babble is laced with ........clarity.

We have much to consider in the coming days and weeks pertaining to Kill Stories.
