    Who cares, if you haven't noticed the overall maturity level is WAY up and the amount of drama / trash talk just for the sake of trash talking is WAY down. That is not a coincidence. If you were wanted to keep this place with this kind of vibe you would kick him out for good Sticky. Or make him restart with a new name and rep from scratch. Then he wont try to bully so hard.

    Tony , with all due respect, the door swings both ways, maybe if both of you would cut down on the bickering, the maturity you seek would continue....

    You really must not be paying attention. Go back and just check the threads where things went haywire. I post about a product, or dyno, or anything. Next thing you know. LM is in there trash talking, derailing the thread, and causing drama. EVERYTIME, once he starts I tell him he is a douche bag. He doesn't stop, finally he took it too far and tried to the same with the guy who owns the forum and got banned for it. It should have happened long ago. The guy went from being a great asset to a full cancer on this forum. You can say what you will, since he has been gone, the vibe has been MUCH more friendly and most of the drama and bickering has stopped. Put two and two together, its pretty simple. The guy FEEDS off being able to put a forum into a $#@! storm and just loves the drama. Maybe he is bored in life, who knows. But it seems from the outside looking in, when he stopped being relevant (RB beta tester, Level 10 tranny upgrades, etc) he couldn't deal with not being front and center so he chose to disrupt things to keep himself in the middle of everything. That's what children do, mommy is not giving me attention. Let me throw my bottle on the floor so she has to pay attention to me. In my eyes, good riddance to that guy for good.

    Your right, I don't follow every thread, especially since it's summer time and I'm not sitting in the house anymore on nights/weekends...so my forum visits are much less, however I guess what I was saying is two wrongs don't make a right. I know you have the ability to block him so that should be enough if you see fit. Plus, I'm sure after the break, everyone should have a second chance and return to normal.... I dunno maybe I'm wrong but we'll never find out if he isn't let back on.

    @Sticky said he doesn't ban on this forum, that's why we have the rep system.....

    Did I miss something here? LM got banned? I don't read every thread so can some bring me up to speed on what happened? If they don't mind.

    Sticky talked about it in the other "Bring Lost Marine back" thread or whatever it was called. Completely understandable decision.

    I have weighed his absence against the quality of the forum posting and interaction during it. I don't know what to say other than the quality is up, bickering is down, and there is far more technical discussion going on. The forum has been better without him, what do you want me to do?

    I made the timeout long enough for him and anyone else to cool down. That said, if the sole purpose of being here is negative disruption then what is the point? If someone is a contributing member and positive the community and no doubt I want that person here. It's more up to him than me but the forum has been more enjoyable than ever.

    I wouldn't ban him for good he helped me a lot and I really appreciate that which is why he got so much rep from me in the first place. I'm very disappointed in his behavior and actions behind the scenes and I don't need the headache. I would think it should be beneath him anyway. That said, stripping him of the rep I gave him may become necessary we'll see. It's definitely an option.

    I don't boot for good but essentially a similar scenario is set to take place after his timeout is up and he has had plenty of time to think about it.

    IMO, LM is a skeptical entity on this forum and sometimes that comes across as being a douche when in fact he is just insisting that new vendors prove themselves before everyone in the community buys into baseless claims. He was tough on Vargas at first, I do not doubt that but once he had a proven product he was ready to help someone (his friend or brother) build a stage 3 vargas car. To me that seemed like an olive branch showing he was ready to end the skeptical tone and move forward, again that's IMO. A few reasons to bring him back sooner than later:
    1. He is helping organize an event on the east coast that has been sorely missed. The roll on event at Atco. This should be getting the attention it deserves and nothing against Angie and Garth, because I know how freaking busy they are with the shop, it is not getting the marketing it deserves on this forum. One thing I am sure no one will debate is that LM draws a crowd, positive or negative he increases traffic to threads just by posting in them.

    2 He has made an amazing addition to his car recently (got to see it first hand, very jealous) and I am sure the community would benefit from seeing the quality of this mod and see the progression first hand rather than having to go elsewhere to find the info.

    3. We are all men here (mostly, sorry to the ladies of Bimmerboost this is not meant to be a knock against you) and we have large egos at times (some more than others) and sometimes things are said that are offensive or threatening even but at the end of the day this is the $#@!ing internet people. Have we gotten to the point where two men with differing opinions can't get into it online without interference from moderation. We are talking about feelings and empty threats over the internet here not dual pistols at 20 paces. Man up is all I am saying on this one. If you met Steve you would know he is a very good guy who loves cars and is passionate about this particular community.

    4. As far as the level of tech talk ect improving while he has been gone. Nonsense. This place has been (sorry to say) boring and the tech talk that has gone on is generated by new product releases and pushing the limits, it is not as if every members automotive IQ went up once LM was removed... Come on people, get real here.

    I sincerely hope BB returns to the forum atmosphere that we all grew to love, an open forum where posts are not deleted, members are not censored by moderators but rather the community and people can say what they want without the banhammer being smashed down.

    That's his own fault and I'm not marketing for him after his behavior. I offered to, his own fault once again. It's a drag strip rental, big $#@!ing deal. I'm supposed to throw a parade?

    No, I'm sorry, you don't know the extent of what took place. I personally am content to never deal with this individual again. After seeing he can not be trusted, will defame you, and absolutely ludicrous personal threats that is not someone mentally stable who goes insane over being told to take some time off. You may feel a certain way but I know how I feel and well, I own the place and take what was done/said very seriously. I even had to block the nutjob on facebook and report him thankfully after that seems something clicked in his head about real ramifications. All he had to do was behave like an adult as I'm with you, it's the internet. He took it too far.

    Considering I read this place daily from morning until night the forum has been much smoother, friendlier, and simply better. Flaming nonsense dragging threads down may be "interesting" to you but it lowers the quality of the forum. Posting quality is up, simply a fact.

    Since when are posts deleted? Since when can't you speak? Since when are you censored? If my telling someone to please take time off for ludicrous threats of their own volition is a banhammer being smashed down I think someone has lost perspective. Yes, it's a forum, don't take a personally and then personally take it too far. He has himself to blame. This place is much more enjoyable without someone constantly trying to tear it down.

    I am not going to go back and forth with you here sticky. In the end its a waste of both of our time. Were you really scared for your well being or life? By someone online 3,000+ miles away from you? I can't see how a grown man can actually be scared of someone on the internet. The only thing on the internet worth being scared of is our $#@!ing government.

    I'm not sitting on my porch with nightvision goggles and a pistol but the point of the matter is it shows serious instability and a desire to harm. Why does anyone need that and why condone it? I have better things to do than deal with someone throwing a huge hissy fit over being asked to calm down and take a break. The problem is obviously behavior based and that behavior needs to be augmented and corrected, not indulged.

    Strongly disagree. Post & thread quality AND activity are both down since LM's ban has been in effect; the OpenFlash N54 tablet is probably the only "technical" based thread that's been posted since he left. This can clearly be proven by logging in, I can beat that 8 times out of 10 Sticky you're the last commenter in the latest bumped threads. Perfect example:
