Can we have porn site ads instead of rover sponsors? My wife has been complaining about "why cant I be like other guys and just look at porn instead of the D-90 site"?

Alluding to sitting back and waiting "for the kill" so the value will decay tells me your intent is self motivated. You are basically saying if you can't buy this place you will ruin it, not very cool to the thousand of other contributors who have helped build this community. Based on my experience so far, and with all due respect, I don't think the right way forward would be to sell the site to you.I agree 100%. The members are what make online forum communities so special. That's why I wont sell out to sponsors and why I won't sell the community for a quick profit to someone who is threatening to damage the place if I don't.

The last few days we had around 380 members swing by yet only a dozen or so even post in these drama threads. Essentially the majority of the members come for technical discussions about their trucks and could careless about how the community is managed because they are respectful to each other and rarely break any of the rules.

I have no clue where you got that idea, furthermore, it is quite sad if from my posts that is all you got.

1 - I am not a bully nor I threat anyone, I stand ground for my values, I give you free information, I grew up in places where your honor , knowledge , values and respect are the only things NO ONE would be able to ever take away from you, so I couldn't be farther from your characterization.

2 - Self motivated? yes , but not as your described. I am thankful for the way this site was, and I am willing to put money ( even at someone's else profitability " YOU " ) to keep it at it was.
Don't twist my words to try to make an argument, read my post over an over, ALL I SAID, was my offer was NOW and with the possibility to make a profit, also mentioned how my career was as a business man and that I was not as nice as I was in the offer, I indeed waited for a kill, doesn't seem to be the case here when I offered to a profit. Does it?
I will not decay the site , thank you for the confidence but I am not capable to decay anything, you and your Team are.

3 - I am the poster boy of respect, I have never disrespected anyone in here or break any rules, HOWEVER,
I would point out wrong doing , and gladly react to disrespect.

If you think this is drama, it is quite pathetic, these are YOUR MEMBERS, the ones that make this site VALUABLE ( without your members this is just an okay piece of Internet Real Estate ), they are voicing their opinion with hopes to maintain it as it was and eliminate a trend to decay. Within my so called drama, I have made suggestions as to how to handle Threads, perhaps you might want to re-visit your position.

And I will take a dozen of concerned members over 1,000 butt kissers.

One more DRAMA, it shows COMPLETE poor taste in airing the problem/s between Dan and Charles, that was their issue and should have been kept that way, UNLESS it is a poorly executed tactic to gain support to the only side that remains alive

Sorry if my interpretation of your posts is not what you intended. The answer is still no to selling the site to you.

This discussion has run it's course, I am going to close it so we can move on to more productive discussions. If you have issues with the way the site is managed feel free to post elsewhere or send me a PM outlining your concern so we can discuss it as a team.

I agree with you completely. The only thing I have ever asked is that people respect my guidelines of conduct.
