Default Banned at 3800pro again...

Background:
I never post there unless it is required to correct false information directly stated on ZZP. Matt was posting about the weight of ZZP cars and Scott refused to list them on the 1/4 mile list. This had been going on for about 6 months.

Scott then proceeded to start filling in ficticious weights for ZZP cars and Matt protested. Scott rebuked him and told him that his forum won't tollerate Matt'* attitude. This was then followed with ZZP bashing. Furthermore all of Matt'* posts with our cars specs on them have been and continue to be deleted. So I post the following response to Scott who asks Matt why he bothers to post on their forum:

Quote:
Why visit at all? Perhaps because you are putting our car'* and their specs on your website. Because we rely on the performance of our vehicles for livelyhood, it'* very discouraging to see the extreme prejudice against ZZP on a semi-public forum and not be able to repute because our posts get deleted by our competitor. For example, it'* been nearly 6 months since Matt posted his weight, yet you never added it.
There are weights listed for people that left the community long ago, yet happen to run intense parts and happen to have weights above what people would expect. This favors sales of intense items, yet when a zzp member supplies his weight it'* falsified, ignored or forgotten. I would then have to ask you Scott, why have the 1/4 mile list at all if you are going to apply prejudice to it'* accuracy to favor yourself? Why not just delete all of the ZZP cars so that you can look at the top 25 list and have them all be intense accomplishments?
To which I get banned from the forum. Sound fair?

I'm not sure why the laundry is being aired here. We are not 3800pro, and we certainly don't have common Staff.

It sounds to me like you have a beef, but they may also. Not knowing what the other side of the story is, I refuse to take sides.

The ZZP/INTENSE issues have been going on far too long. Looks like it got carried too far again. It would be nice to see the bashing stop, and mutual respect to begin growing.

Zoomer, if you need or want a mediator of sorts on this, and INTENSE is willing, you can go through me if you wish.

If I understand correctly, this all started over a disagreement regarding the weight of a car that differed by 30 pounds between the parties involved?

Let'* put the knives down and let this one blow over.

I have to agree with willwren...........

Why not pool the collective resources and develop the market for the 3.8 like it should be
