Yea, I'd say that'* worse.
Don't forget the GP morons! They think just because they've got a GP with a 3800 that they're "GOD" wnen they're actually "JACK **** THE MESSENGER BOY"! They seem to forget the the Bonneville had a 3800 long before the GP did.
Geesh!

I find the best remedy to a spamer is a friend to pay a visit. Donít even get mad, just write this when you cut him off from the site: " I am sorry I though you understood that we have a strict rule about spamming. Do to this rule you are no longer allowed to enter this forum in any capacity and regardless of intent any future attempts to enter will result in the same response. I am sorry our site was not for you but I am sure there are others that can help. Happy surfing" Anger makes you the one out of control. LOL but my sentiments are exactly the same. I find ití* kind of like the chick that cut me off in traffic yesterday I wanted to kill her, but she waved and said sorry (and looked like she meant it) so I was able to let it go. I believe this guy is still bugging you because of the fun of getting you mad. You could post his ip address in a * forum with a $100.00 reward for computer menltdown..LOL ..LOL

TY

I think the problem with the gp comment is you are dealing with children some in larger bodies. Always remember how children learn ...they learn by touching the hot element that their mommy said not to touch. Ouch mommy that Bonneville kicked my A$$. Donít worry most gp owners are not children per say so they are just a few. I also really like the gp nice car, to many though. I like the Bonneville because its numbers are lower. This will make you laugh, I was at the dealership looking at a new Le Sabre and I love that car. I want one soooo bad. LOL well that and about another 30,000.00 to put on flames drop in a new engine and a few other goodies.

TY

Well I've been looking at a 2003 Pontiac Vibe GT with the 6 speed manual transmission........This car will even beat the GTP! NOTE: and with 2 gears left too! I never seen a faster "FAMILY WAGON". BTW: Yeah the new LeSabre does look great! I work at a Pontiac-Buick-GMC-GMC Medium Duty Trucks Dealership.

deathrat,

it seems you're kind of new to maintaining public forums? trolls are like....expected and the fact that you've only had 5 now is surprising. i know the reactionary approach is to clamp down on user posting but god damn just delete the users and posts that are causing the problem and get on with life.

t'* hard enough moderating a group of 350+ members as is let alone have to deal with SPAMMERS as well!
i think you're blowing that out of proportion. i've never seen you moderate anything on the list.

Errr, not quite. Vibe GT will do a high 15 quarter. More of a match for a Grand Prix GT than a GTP. Now a well-driven Celica GTS (same engine as the Vibe GT, lighter body) could possibly give a GTP a good race.[/quote]

I agree there are always bad apples and thus the need to vent. Vent away all you want ill be glad to listen/read. That said there will be more and having a plan like erasing posts and booting with as little emotion as possible works fairly well.

Later

Actually I RUN the Bonneville Intensity Group on Yahoo! I do not moderate anything on this forum. As to maintaining public forums, I'ved run 3 before Bonneville Intensity! BTW: Those 5 are the SAME PERSON! If you had read the earlier post>>>>>>>

This guy has tried 5 times so far to join & post his SPAM. I've banned him every time so far. Some people are so dense!
Maybe I did overreact BUT this one guy just caught me on a BAD DAY!
It justs never amazes me how dense some people are (SPAMMERS) & how quickly others judge you based upon partial information without getting the whole story or background of the person they're judging!
