I don't think that such an opinion is all that revelutionary though. But as has also been mentioned in the past, it's Jermey's site, and if he wants this type of thing to go on as a "shenanigan" or as a way of killing off the site, then so be it. :shrug:

I was referring to the folks over on MJ. You're not longer a mod over there. :p

in all honesty though, does anyone really think MJ has been truly living for a while now? So someone picked out an artifical date to pull the plug.

it's been dying for quite a while, and many have posted their opinions of why.

people talk about an absent owner. OT's owner, Fazle hasn't had a truly active presence on his board in years. Yes, he does post from time to time, and yes he has periodic contests and some involvement, but that sight has gone gonzo since it originally parted ways with the precursor (honda-tech.com) Like greatlakes, OT grew in part because it expanded the scope of the audience.

people like the "small, I know everyone" atmosphere, and fondly recall when GLJU was just 9 members. But people come and go in and out of our lives all the time - a site has to grow to continue to live, but it has to grow in a positive way. How to manage that growth in a positive way I'm afraid isn't an easy task.

Finally, yes kelly, I believe that you spoke with Jeremy, as I said, you have the entire whitepages.com in your cell phone, and/or in your AIM contact list :p

I just find it an extremely odd way for Jermey to handle the end of a site that he put a lot of effort (and/or money) into building

if that were the case, then the post on MJ should have been locked, and/or stickied, and a new, perhaps "good bye" thread should have been made.

perhaps, even as suggested where folks could exchange contact information.

that being said, I do see that DD posted in a "where will everyone go?" thread.

I'm glad I got fucked for $50 (automatic goldmember re-subscription) before the site tanks.

I've met him. I've never personally had a problem with him in person, or online. :shrug: but I mostly get along with everyone, even if many people can't stand me for whatever reason.

If it is in fact going down, he should take the Gold Membership and the Vendor Membership off now!!
Looks like I'm out my Vendor Membership money that I just sent in too...

Same reason I keep sending your site money; it's a good resource to have and I like helping out. I wouldn't have re-enrolled, but the site was pretty sneaky and got me.

Why would anyone run 1-ton axles?

that's easy to say, if your his friend, He shit all over me for nothing.
I've even had other mods over there agree with me on that, and at that point I may have gotten out of hand, but initially I did nothing to have him jumpin on my ass.
