There should be no. Very simple rules. For example; post that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise in violation of any laws.

Thanks for confirming you are only going after people you want to and not everyone who sells shitboxes because they are your friends. You have really valid points but unless you go after everyone including your friends you are nothing more than a joke and possibly a puppet.

If we use your eyes both are equal.

But come on, what's reality?
I am with you on that example, but again, it shouldn't be us telling someone selling something anything at all.

Maybe some of us have a knowledge on getting a truck professionally painted for $ 2,000, well that doesn't take away that same job could cost $ 10,000 in another place, or you know how to rebuild an engine and some of us need to pay someone 60 hours to do the work ( same material cost but no same end cost ), and so forth.

I think it is the responsibility of a BUYER to do due diligence in the purchase, and if someone can obtain $ 40 for $ 20 item, bless them, Land of Capitalism.


I am all for tearing a new one per se to someone that comes to the board ( NOT FOR SALE ) with a POS and try to tell us, you do not know what you are talking about, this RARE vehicle commands $ 1,000,000.

Or people with Puma's on Series VIN numbers claiming ignorance, yeah, lets all jump in.
If someone post on any other part of the forum OUR OPINION on a particular vehicle, go for it, but that could very well hinder someone's sale

It seems that most of the issues are in the for sale area (but I'm broke, so I never even look). Its not uncommon for classified sections to have their own rules etc. where censorship could come into play, without using such a broad brush for the whole site. If you think about it classifieds are an ad, and don't require discussion, other than asking pertaining questions for those interested in the item. The rest of the board is fair game for discussion, and so as not to get ones dander up, the ignore feature actually works quite well.

Which one of my friends sell trucks?

Gus,
Where would someone go to do their due diligence (research) on a D-90 with a 6.2 in it?

I don't know your friends. Just looking at stats. You have been on this board since 04 and there have been plenty of shit trucks exactly like the 6.2 from importers for sale yet you never said a word. Just calling it like I see it. You could be a creditable source if you were consistent. If you don't go after all for sale threads there is no reason to trust your opinion. Who knows your motivation or what is true when you only pick certain people and threads. Again you look like a puppet for other dealers. I wouldn't trust what you say if this is your mo. Your opinion and knowledge is worthless this way.

No but I recall you telling a buyer of a shitbox truck similarly priced to grow a pair when it broke down on the way home from buying it. I don't think you commented on it when it was for sale. I would quote the thread but it has been pulled from the board. Either way your venom on this board is new. You didn't jump on the for sale threads until recently hence why this thread exists.

This post made me think for a minute because the house wasn't vacant and the people there weren't homeless

And this thread is not helping anyone... well I take that back its pretty calm on the forsale page.

you need to ask the question on the proper sintax, location, time, place by name of course and what were you doing at the shop when you saw said vehicle.... of course we need to describe said vehicle to a "t" and throw in the vehicle you drove at that ocassion.... lol...

I think the original question of this thread (Where are the mods) has been answered by now. They don't exist anymore or don't care.

Edit: I re-read the beginning of the thread and Charles did jump on this at first... so I am wrong. They do exist.

This is probably one of the more helpful posts here on this whole topic. Classifieds should be classifieds and if you should feel the need to trash that add just do it in the misc section or respond directly to the poster or your friends with your witty or degrading comments.

As for this board being sold. That is definitely disappointing because bullshit ads are now going to ruin the one forum that was a good read and more of what a community feels like.

As for the continued poor behavior of an otherwise knowledgeable contributor..... It's just sad and pathetic.

Your inconsistency is why your knowledge is a waste. Here are some of your best lines cut and pasted:

Quote:
If the truck is not a rust bucket and has a diesel engine that runs, you did not do too bad at $14k at this point in time, even if it needs a
little work.


I'm not missing a thing. He was not buying this truck from some little old lady who's husband died 20-years ago and the truck was sitting
in a barn until October. He bought it off a car salesman who's in the business to make money on selling imported Land Rovers


Shit, if I bought a Rover at auction to resale, what should I disclose? I can drive the truck for several weeks or several hundred miles, but
am I supposed to know that the fuel pump is about to fail without warning? Should I be responciable for that?!

I would have loaded the entire thread but it's not working for me. You get the point. You aren't consistent with what you say so you discredit yourself. You just look like an asshole who feels like fucking with individuals which is fine its just sad whatever knowledge you really have people can't trust.

No, I do not get the point. Post a link to the thread and I'll spoon feed it to you since you're too fucking stupid to understand.
