Eric!!!!! I guess Rad gave you the scoop. The Ban was highly exaggerated my friend by the Wren Mafia. Only those that tried to directly disrupt our old haunt were banned. And a few more as they played their hand and dealt from the bottom of the deck. To tell you the truth, more bans were released with the re-organization than imposed. Including yours my friend. As you can see, your account was opened, post count retained, and I will let you change your username if you wish since the car is just a fond memory now.

So, how'* it feel to be able to say what you feel and not worry about a **** boot goin up yer azz??? All new, reformatted to premium software, new design, awesome Tech Info like never before, very friendly and helpful Staff. And the use/traffic here is beyond my hopes of when we pulled off getting the site back up and going well. The new owner is awesome, and we have the run of the place. I have few rules, very open mind, and we don't act like "If you dont do, or mod our way, your an idiot." Everything here is done in the open, and problems are worked out and explained. No more, just because....STFU!

"If you dont do, or mod our way, your an idiot."

hmm that would be exactly why I left this site way back when, and PBC.

It is much nicer now.

Thanx Chris. One of the biggest reasons I came back here in the "new" beginning, and have put the long hours in here making it over, is I love the Bonneville. And enjoy sharing with friends. I spent 3 years enduring the "crap" that went on here, tried to ignore, and keep up with the few "friendlies" I came to know. Danthurs and BillBoost have worked as, if not harder. The site has risen out of the ashes and hope all here feel at ease, at home, and feel it'* an easy going place to not just find and share great Bonneville info. But to just hang out and be yourself as well. The "fraternity brothers" mentality is gone. And I don't allow disrespect. Not to members or their choices in Mods and Style. I've met a lot of new friends, gotten compliments on the site, and that makes it all worth it.

yup.

https://www.gmforum.com/t278957/

i read through this thread above and several others.


i was part of the pbc when it began running on the new site, wren banned me because i was apparently "flirting" with pmom/pdad'* daughter (she pm'd me and asked how old i was when i posted my pic and we were chatting back and forth..) and this somehow made her feel "uncomfortable" from what, 3, 4 thousand miles away? and he threw a ban on me.. this is like, days after the new pbc opened.. Good to know the bonneville forum I was originally on still is here.

i hate to flame someone who isn't even here to defend himself, but wren is probably single-handedly the biggest douchebag i've ever had the displeasure of coming across on a message board.. really, that'* all i have to say. when the ban happened, i was also posting on bonnevillepro and 3800pro and he followed me onto one of the boards and was posting this "Do you want me to tell everyone why you're banned" bullshit and I simply PM'd him and told him to **** off and told him to grow up.

good to be back.

i may take up the name change idea, but i'll stick with this for a while.

Pmom'* daughter?? Bahahahahahaha!!! That is Rich....... Now that you got it off your chest, (and I have the personal knowledge of your ordeal with him). Les let the past stay buried here and move on. We have come to think it'* best to move forward and let the past rot over yonder.

funny story.. for some reason, my computer **** itself a few weeks back so i ordered a new one. i was able to get the hard drive to work in an enclosure so i could get stuff off of it.. the moment i got it home from my friends who hooked it up for me inside the box, it wouldn't work.

sucks.. i have screens of PM'* leading up to my bans on here back in '06.
