    First we started of with getting mad at someone who has been on here for a long time for encouraging people and telling them they have a nice looking explorer.

    Now on a different thread we have an argument about how someone is modifying his explorer. Does it matter that you think it looks bad, he thinks it looks good. (Similar situation with the Raptor grille).

    Cant we all just get along?
    Didn't our parents, teach us a long time ago that if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all?

    Now let's all go make sandwiches.

    Well when one person says everyone elses explorers look like shit, eventually everyone is gonna tell him his looks like shit.

    And not everyone takes kindly to sly insults, bragging, and general dousche-baggery.

    And no this was a general statement so dont think I singled anybody out, It just so happens some people fit the bill.

    The one whining the most about this certain thread brought it all on himself but we are not allowed to defend ourself when he attacks us personally. WTF

    I'm sure this thread will be deleted in the blink of an eye.

    It's the internet.

    You can argue all you want, but what's the point? The person is still going to do what they want to their stuff. It clogs up a thread for no reason.

    BTW, all of your guys' explorer are lame and look like shit. ;)


    Don't start talking shit, then shit won't be talked back. Pretty simple.

    You were a moderator at one point and should understand why that might happen...

    Every time I almost think humanity is going to be okay, I'll catch a glimpse of a comments section and realize we're f*ucked.

    Yes I understand all your points but can't you (not pointing fingers) just let stuff go. Just read whatever gets said, if you don't like it then just unsubscribe, no need for argument. This seems like one of the nicest forums out there, why do we need to dirty it up and be mean toward one another.

    And if it does ever get deleted then its okay, I just wondered why we need to bicker over something. (If you believe in Karma) Then why care soon enough what someone has said or done will catch up to them.

    It wouldn't be repeated if someone didn't ask/comment about it.

    We can also follow the forum rules and avoid all of this. If you don't like that, don't be a part of the forum. Again, simple as that.

    I meant like repeated comments about peoples explorers..Which yes people have the right to do, I do not disagree with this whatsoever. BUT when you constantly say it to other people and then all of them gang up on you what do you expect? And if this offensive, delete it..id rather not get banned after paying 20 bucks -__-

    Ah, I gotcha... I read your post the other way around. I completely agree with you. My second part of my post wasn't directed at you either, it was a general statement.

    This happens in waves on this forum, which is pretty funny. Having been a part of it for the past 12 years and a Moderator for 6, there are definitely patterns. It will all be fine again for a while, then we'll have another "problem and resolve" period.

    It's all good, I just did my "duties" in that thread to keep the peace.

    You attacked me first and I was defending myself. I do not go on your registries and tell you over and over that your truck is ugly. I could go on for days talking smack about things I do not like on your trucks, but I said I was not a fan and left it. Move on.

    How about this- everyone cuts the bullshit, stop posting in each others threads, and move on. Good God...

    IN response to the original question--

    When a moderator tries to enforce the rules due to a complaint, it is a moderated thread.
    When someone complains about a moderator enforcing the rules, then is when it becomes an argument.

    Oh, did you ever get your stuff? I came out 25.00 behind on all that--so, yeah I'm a bad guy. It would have been nice to be thanked, or at least told you did indeed get it all---
