A moderator left this forum as a mod a few months ago, and now because he isn't on the team is having a whole 1984 doublespeak lies going around about him.
I can only imagine what lies may be getting spread about a friend who left as a mod a few weeks ago.

Anyone connected to Florida Focus is getting punished for being here, posts deleted, all traces of some being erased including how to's.

I am seeing a horrible decline of the older users in this community they are all being driven off this site. The technical knowledge base is dwindling by the day because of double speak, elitism and cliques. This site is not for the community any more.

I'm done with the drama, I have a lot of knowledge for the focus and cars in general, I have built two turbos for an SPI, did direct port nitrous, and double stage nitrous. I have made probably some of the highest power on an SPI.

I've made some great friends from this site, and I will keep those friendships alive, just not on this site anymore.

I will cause no more drama, as I am gone after this post.
Thank you for almost 6 years in the community
Why do you think I stopped posting in the tech sections and actually left the site for several months. If you aren't swinging from Turbo Tom's mullet 24/7 or worshipping the grounds the mods walk on, you get banned or something ridiculous (watch me get an infraction for saying that. How dare I have an opinion of my own???). FF = chinese knockoff parts and flashy, shiny stuff. FJ = actual experience and knowledge and people who actually drive their cars and drive the hell out of them. I seriously beat the piss out of my car at the track. Race it, break it, fix it, repeat. FF just seems to be for those who say NOS when they mean nitrous and live their life a quarter mile at a time. The only reason I still visit this site is for the Mid-Atlantic region and I never venture outside of here.

I wrote a lot, but the main point is I agree. The site owner here needs to seriously reconsider his relationship with turbo Tom to make some kind of positive change. It's amazing that he can't see that all of this drama is being caused by Tom, not the ever-growing army of disgruntled customers and offended members.

Smith I agree with you. I still love my Foci but I really only post here (occasionally) and check the BST section.

Thank you for almost 6 years in the community

^^^ You know me well enough that I am part of NO CLIQUE....the drama.
is BS I agree

I have never taken sides, those of you that know me...no better than that...several Mods were getting pissed about the mullett thing and I imagine thats what the "temp ban" was for...Ian knows he has a RECORD for most temp bans ever at FF LOL...I don't know if there was a specific insident that got you banned or not.I could go look but it really doesn't matter to me. I didn't ban you, so I don't "reverse" other peoples work.


Ya know, I thought about going to Florida focus to see what was up but decided I really didn't have the time for another site...and it just seemed to generate the usual shenanigans that the MA is famous for anyway...

As to Turbo Tom? since he seems so important to some of you guys.
1.) He DOES know a crapptonne about the car more than anyone else in this thread
2.) He DOES have the worst "bedside" manner EVER...and is not the best (by far) and getting stuff done when he says he will

^^^ BUT...He has ALWAYS been this way...So, where I enjoy talking to him in person, he doesn't work on my cars, AND I take his crappy attitude with a grain of salt, he is like a grumpy old doctor, but a damn good doc..

But for Gods sake guys, he doesn't run the site, and believe me ( and Ken knows) he has gotten yelled at his fair share of times...so if you don't like the guy, just Fn ignore him or don't read his stuff


Now, as to all the stuff with Ians account. Thats probably a moderator doing that to keep drama down..I dunno...

But seriously guys...I value your opinions, and as a Mod I want to respond, BUT more as your friend I want to respond sooo...here goes...next post

I really don't have the time to type this BUT I feel its needed

1.) As to tagging.."We (the Mods) changed that about 2 years ago when when members were abusing it.

2.) The Feedback forum has always been private for the longest time. After we did an upgrade at the end of last year it reset the permissions, we just never caught it until we realize people were posting replies in there.

3.) Focus Rising was conceived in MY KITCHEN!!!. I have been behind it since day 1 ...Does anyone remember why it was started???

TO END THE WAR BETWEEN ALL THE FOCUS SITES AND BRING US ALL TOGETHER

^^^anyone remember that

I drive a focus I like it, I don't care what site you are on its still a focus. i want info and help with my car and want to help others the same way...that is all

Can we go back to that please?

4.) I will TRY to answer any questions that are direct and to the point...lets hash this out, but NO VAQUE BS...spell it out...

Brinton, you are amazed I"m still a mod here due to all the BS..tell me? what BS..tell me and I"ll adress what I know about honestly

The comments about "squids" and NOS and all the "ricer" kids? quess what guys? always been here, always will be...They are here, on FJ on Floida focus ( I imagine)...maybe its our job to help edjucate and move them ahead...and yeah, maybe laugh at their antics a bit as we go...just not too loudly

5.) lets keep the DRAMA elsewhere. I came here to play with cars and have fun with friends...I"d like to keep that up.

I watch some of you guys create so much BS in your lives...I"ve seen people who " I hate that douche" be best buddies 6 months later.. Thats great!!! but when it goes back and forth, and when we have CArlisle or a garage day here at my house and people won't talk to one another due to this reason or that?
WHAT THE F ever!!!!!.you guys MAKE those choices yourself...Drive a focus, come on by...If your an idiot..well we just won't invite ya back...really that simple
Can we just leave the headaches at home

Anyway...I"m done, gotta run...leave any questions here and I"ll answer "em...Or PM me if they are of a personal nature...lets get past this BS...I"m tired of it

I see. i guess my question is why only certain people can and can't. i like to tag pictures that i upload to the gallery section. I tried doing it one day and no permissions. most other people i talk to can still do it. I just never got an answer that made sense. I guess yours make sense as to stop BS with certain people, but im not sure why it's random as to who can and who cannot.
