Consider it a natural progression. MJ was a parent who spawn a superior offspring (GL). Eventually all parents outlive their usefullness.

Long live GL.

I started going there back in 02 or so. I knew it was going to dive when the "good" moderators started getting overrun by the "bad" moderators and Jeremy tried to make a national entity out of Michigan Jeepers. Combine that with the highest paid-member rate I've ever seen, they didn't have a chance. Good thing Jeremy didn't quit his day job.

It is sad. I also joined back in 2002, and was really impressed with the site and the people. There used to be some real good tech. When it fell into the whole non-starred members are baby-killers, that was pretty much the death-knell, there.

I was over there a few days ago, and in the off topic area, on a weekend, there were only liek 10 threads that were even posted in in the last two days. I was pretty suprised at the decline.


One of the key things here, is this is NOT a JEEP site, its for everyone. True, MJ had lots of non jeepers, but I think this site caters better towards them, with the more inclusive attitude.

I raise a for GL4x4 and pour one on the ground for my Homie MJ

Even though the torch was already being passed from MJ to GL. I hope that Kelly and Bill never lose sight that GL is but an offspring of MJ. Most parents hope that their children grow up to achieve greater success than themselves and I hope for the same with this forum.

Like Lothos said,toss a up for MJ.

but toss up for going forward with GL.

Anyway, I met a lot of great people on MJ, sorry to hear it.

I hope the good ones that have not migrated over here do so now.

I have met many good friends and a few great friends from MJ. Gonna be sad to see it go. I guess all good things must come to an end. I have been spending more time on GL than MJ in the past couple months anyway.

I didnt waste my time reading this entire post, but why is it not in the recycle bin yet?
CCs comment that it is 100% accurate is about as believable that Bush is in favor of national health care.

The Mods over there are saying how they all knew, and how they had a hard time keeping a secret.. and blah blah.. so I think it might be true.

I was informed of this awhile back, just never told anyone from fear of it turning into a big issue..

After I spoke with Jeremy yesterday, then I knew for sure..

Denial


Anyway, who didn't see this coming? Jeremy has been absent for months and the site has been in decline - due to many things I think. Personally I think the writing was on the wall, as they say.
I am glad that GL is here to step up. I think we will find that this site will continue to grow and all the web-wheelers, smack-talkers, trolls, and even those people we can call friends will end up here.
Here's to Jeremy - I've said it before and I'll say it one last time - thanks for your effort. Thanks for the memories

Where? What mods? Rosie? In a chat room? I didnt read that in the post. I think they are joking and/or sarcastic.

This is a bad April Fools joke! :dunie:

I see the thread now, still surprised that Jeremy, or one of the mod's wouldn't make an official post, intead of just letting that one prattle on.
