The way I see it, this is a free forum for me. Whatever it takes to keep it running is just perfect for me. If I didn't like it, I would just move on.

Default Suggestion...

I realize this is a hair OT, but have you guys ever considered putting a front end on the site similar in feel to MotoringFile, that would be a jumping off point to the rest of the site? You could use it to highlight particularly interesting threads, pass along important info or as a place to put your featured articles.

As m|u is kind of a fusion between a geographically centered club and an online community ala NAM, it might be helpful (especially to us noobs).

Just my two pieces of US gov'ment issued copper.

In practice though, people throw profanity around like 4th graders pretty often, which can get annoying and possibly turn people (member and vendor alike) away from our forums.

Finding the balance is difficult, no doubt. If you can find me a plug-in for vBulletin that allows people to control whether they see profanity or not, on a per-user basis, I would be open to considering it for installation on our forums.
My problem with forums like these is more related to personal attacks/flame wars. Honest discussion gets lost amid the warfare. I think some of the heavy-handedness I've seen by mods on "other sites" that prevents anybody from even being able to discuss/mention a particular topic just because it's been deemed off limits. That's the REAL censorship, not asking people to disagree and behave like adults.

Personally, I'm kinda a laissez-faire kinda guy.

I can see the letter from school now, "I saw that word on my dad's computer.
Excellent points, my man. Foul language used solely for its own sake or because you think it gives you some kinda street cred within a community is just weak IMHO.
