In the last few months there has been some awsome debates happening...

*Ban religion in schools.
*Big Bang THeroy.
*some other thing about jesus or somthing.??
*T&A 1.
*T&A 2.
*T&A yoms suming up.
*where is the T&A gone.

Apart from the ocasionaly amusing 6 posts a day from escove about how bord he is been retired and how hard life having to wind down on friday night, then agen on sunday ready for the week of winding down. how come there isnt any fun, interesting or heated debate about somthing people have strong for and agensed opionions like politics, church, god, jesus, T&A, how good TD42's are and How bad 3lt and 2.8s are.
somone come up with somthing to amuze us (especially escove).

sombody go trolling, and use jesus and his 12 deciples for bait or somthing?
I herd there biting well in the 'General discusion area' If you use sented luers.

Maate! You want a good thread here you have to appeal to the masses. Like "Who'd like to poke Lady Gaga in the bladder.' It works...I've seen it.

All you need to do is get emotional. Make some wildly outrageous claim...about anything really, and see what happens. For instance you could suggest that Jesus was a **** (he was BTW) or that Abbot has been rooting Julia on the side. You need to be a little sly, it's just a game. Enjoy it.

One topic that hasn't been touched on in a little while is Unions and whether or not they are good and worth the hassle.

heyhey...damn good idea. What do we think about Unions now? I think they are stuffed. The days of: 'You can't get me...I'm sticking with the Union, I'm sticking with the Union...'til the day I die.' All gone now.

That's history . The Socialist Realism of the 1930's swept through Europe, and to a lesser extent Britain and America. Ultimately it failed.

So...what replaced the workers shield? The legal process...that's what. That's where the debate should be now. Not on the barricades, but in the courtroom.

One of the thngs I like about this place is the strange obscurity of the comments.
You know what you are talking about (I hope)...but I have NFI.

A few years ago this forum was just technical info about Patrols and a tiny bit of friendly banter. If you had any Patrol problems, the answers were there to be found, or a new post would get the info pretty quickly. No crap, no racy pictures, no attacking other members.

Lately, there has been heaps of T&A, people arguing about random crap, uninformative posts and mods and users having public "discussions" which should be private. When I click on the 'new posts' button too many of the threads are non-Patrol related.

I love a bit of cleavage etc but there are 94839453847375 other sites out there that have much more "in-depth" images etc. Plenty other sites have whingers, argumentative and political banter, why does it need to happen here? Also, lots of smart arse replies to posts that do not call for it.

The technical info seems to have become a bit lost in the "fun and games."

Maybe that's what happens to sites when they become popular, just like popular camping/4x4ing spots that become thrashed.

If I want to see that crap I'll go over to outerlimits site. Am I the only one that noticed this? I'm off to go have a cry now.

I'm enjoying it all. I dont get to read everything so I just choose what I hopes going to be good. There's a bit to chose from ! And I'm grateful.

For the next big question...can some one explain time ? What is it ? Why is it ?

There is only so many times you can ask the same question, 80% of questions asked can be answered by using the search function.

IF thats the case,you're not needed any more. Then go somewhere else. I was reading a thread lately where an enquirey was made about why this fellows 4.2 was running on. One of the fool answers was to put a garden hose down the snorkel and that will stop it. I used to enjoy it, but it's not worth looking anymore.

this forum expired as a technical resource the moment it got popular - all forums do. there is NO way to moderate what is actually posted in the technical sections. Can't go around deleting anything which may not be 100% relevant to a specific topic.

what still remains is ALOT of information and a number of very knowledgeable people who hang around to help those who are actually interested in what they have to say.

the other issue is the demographic of users. Some technical forums are great as they only attract professionals. We do not have this luxury. Automotive attracts everyone from all walks of life and that includes the absolute dregs of society and those from the upper middle class who see themselves as superior to those below them......these people do not mix well in real life so how do we expect them to mix in real life.

There will always be conflicts of opinion and ideas.

Most of the good threads get started or dominated by certain people wanting to push their way of thinking and then when they don't go the way they wanted or intended, they get closed or usually deleted to hide the fact that others dare to think differently and don't agree with the approved and mandated thought processes.

Those threads may be amusing but best not wasting ones time on.
What's your problem glort?

Why do you feel threatened that a moderator will censor your thoughts and ideas?

Do you need a hug or a tissue?

Most mods don't no anything anyway in the forums that I'm associated with. They Just like the fact that they can delete anything they think is right or wrong and love having keyboard power.


See how this forum goes as I'm new.

And a mod is alway right. :confused:

Time is a relative concept... I can't explain it here, it has to be done at night with alcohol, but this will help you to understand...

Oh so this forum is 100% dedicated to the Nissan Patrol ???

Whod have thought

The main perception i see in deleating incorrect info in a technical thread is who is to say wether an answer is right or wrong ???

As YOM mentions (Gee im agreeing with you for once YOM),
We have all walks of life on this and many other forums
Some smart,some smart arrrsssses,some keyboard warriors,and some total toolbags

Remember whatever we wheel,we wheel Nissans (OH except you YOM,but we make exception)
It is a great place ,IF ya dont wanna read something or the topic is not you,move to something else
