I've been here off and on for a few years now. The very idea that one person can take over and have such an affect on so many just blows me away. Personally, I don't bother to spend time on anything I don't like. It's counter productive. I try to keep a bright light on no matter how dark someone else may try to turn things. MM has been there for me when I had questions, comments, needs, etc. I have a local guy whose an ACE at turning Mini wrenches. I consider myself blessed that I now have a classic Mini that is as dependable as any other car I've owned. Thanks Steve Gibbs at Coopertune for your expertise, and thanks MM for helping me find new and fun ways to spend my money. And to all those who frequent this forum, thank you, you have all given me many new ways to approach some old problems.

Just my 2 cents.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR PHYSICS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT, I'D BE UNSTOPPABLE

I find your post offensive and don't like it. Please delete it. (Yes, this IS a test of your ability to keep your word.)

I see this occasionally on other threads, always specialist's name as last poster but no message posted by him. I suspect he posts a message to the thread, then deletes it. The post counter reverts back but the last poster's name remains even though the post was removed.

On the index page it shows specialist as the last post (before this one anyway) But when you look that last post #12 it's actually Derwood? The post count is right at 12 posts so it doesn't appear that anything was deleted? How strange is that..................................

Edit. I saved a screenshot of the index page but for some reason it wont post to this message?

Mini's are like buses they come along in a bunch

Why anyone would want to tarnish such a wonderful feature as this FREE forum is beyond me. As the most rookie of subscribers, I have gained an enormous amount of friendly help in my quest to find a mini that suits me. So a large THANK YOU to MINI MANIA from Derwood ( aka my real name Darren ). Peace my friends ( and thanks for all the help ). :)

With a couple good Mods this place could be great again.

This has been suggested many times over the years, but generally isn't needed - we normally kinda self moderate.

Unfortunately, the turd in the pipeline is you-know-who winding everyone up and posting utter rubbish, his sole intention seems to be trolling the place into oblivion.  Whether it is malicious or just rooted in mental illness I know not, but the whole place works so much better when he's under one of the oh-so brief bans.

Now, now, Jim... Try not to get so upset over our FREE service for enthusiasts! These are just general rules for everyone, very typical for a forum setting! Nobody is asking you to be nice to anyone! And obviously you're not! You must use that jacket line often... I've heard it here before, but it seems it's still here! Remember, we're also a community that provides moral and (sometimes when needed) emotional support among friends. Would you like to share what's happening in your life that has you so unhappy? It might make you feel better... You should really check your "tubes" too! I'm not sure who else is in there with you, but we are the dominant web presence for Classic Minis in North America. Just our free "Cars For Sale" page has more web traffic than all other Classic Mini sites in the United States combined!

Have a lovely weekend! Such gorgeous weather this time of year, don't you think?
