    Man alive,I tried posting on the general F car area that I was looking for an F-40.Had a good early response from some enthusiasts and F car owners.Then my post was moved to the Supercar site.I have never even gone to that area,and I wasnt looking for F-40 owners,but looking for leads from the general population.Well,then I posted as to Why my thread was moved?,and it got worse.Unreal.I try to help people here,and the first time I am looking for some help,I get stomped.I learned.I will stay in the safe haven of "OTHER",and find my F40 elsewhere.LAMBO'S ROCK!!!!(so do F40's)

    I replied to you while your post was in general and my offer still stands to drive the F40 to you when you find it.

    dude - the specific sections exist for specific discussion - to control the traffic. it's not arbitrary. it's not irrational.

    i understand you might not dig the setup and the rules, but hey, it's not our sandbox - it's rob's and he decides what the rules are. we're all free to leave if we want to.

    imo, the reason this is set up this way is so that people who don't care to discuss F40s in particular ever have to wade through those messages at all. i for one like this setup, since i never want to talk about the more vintage cars, nor most of the classics.

    i personally think i'ts silly to separate the supercars out from the time ranges the other cars are broken into, but, hey, i don't get to make the rules around here :).

    doody.

    I don't like the catagorization of everything. Reminds me of those bars that have 5 themes in one club. You go there looking for your friends, but can't find them becasue they were in the Wall Street themed bar and you were looking in the Miami themed bar.

    Before I just scanned the gen section and the texas section. If I saw a title of a post about something I didn't wnat to read I just skipped it. no big deal. Now I have to go HUNT for things I want to read and I might be missing some I do becasue they are in another section.

    Way too many sections now I think.

    Rules should be applied in a consistent manner.I know the reasons for them.What I am telling you is that the viewer I was looking for was the enthusiast and owner that views that area.I have never viewed the Supercar site,and dont intend to start.My point again,is that it was a thread that was causing no problems where it was,and actually fits better there than 30% of the other threads that are there.I am venting my frustration over this,which I am entitled to do.Duh,I know its not my site,but sometimes arbitrary things arent right,and maybe there's a better mousetrap.Following blindly leads to stagnation over time,and I know Rob is open to new ideas and wants problems brought up when a member believes there is one.I am not trying to overthrow the government here,just making a point,in my way.

    violent agreement.

    one of the things on rob's to do list is to make an option where you can say "show me all the new messages since i last checked" (like you can now) "but only from the groups i'm subscribed to".

    so if there are 20 sections and you only care about 7 of them, this function will spit back new messages only in the 7 sections you reall care about.

    hopefully that could help.

    it'd also be helpful if the "show me all the new messages since i last checked" could be ordered by section so you could, say, skip all the lamborghinichat messages ;).

    the important thing is to make suggestions to rob. he puts stuff on his list. he's got way more list than he has time, but if something ain't on his list - be it new features, policy questions/changes, etc. it definitely ain't likely to happen.

    doody!

    on the thread, where ever they put it.

    a '91 for $300K, and a lead to FoD.

    '92s are supposed to be the best ones, IIRC?

    agreed, A.J. has a great collection of cars , and has been kind enough to share them. i got the distinct impression the thread was moved for reasons other than those quoted. there are 308 threads and this and that in there ( GFD), i like the variety! AJ , i hope you find the right car to add to your stable, thanks again for the PM conversations. michael

    Not this again!! Geez we already had this discussion "over there"!!!

    Let it go already..this is just a chat board!! Not the end of the world. Why don't you go and grab a copy of Dupont regisrty, FML, check ebay, check the news paper, check with exotic dealers etc.

    I'm sure you will be able to find somthing. Good luck in your search..I wish I was in your shoes to have such a "problem"
