    lets make this simple for the people who have a problem with CSP/Raj/Sheldon whether it be his posts/ or the fact hes here.

    1. Click to view his Profile
    2. Under his Profile Picture theres a list of options
    3. Click 'Add To Ignore List'

    youll now never see his posts again..



    its no secret, JC has gone quiet since facebook, insta, etc. CSP provides life to threads with his opinion which lets face, its never the same as yours. we've lost so many damn good members here because that person didnt agree with someone elses opinion and instead of a rational way, they simply went the true garage aussie way and called that person a faggot and on the other end of that stick was someone who got butthurt and long story short - report button - banned. alot of those people were technical members who knew a **** load about Holdens and brought so much great info to JC, but because of this, they end up all moving to SC forums.

    we need to stop acting like this is a ladies club. if you look around, you'd actually be surprised at how many people have been banned over the years and are back here. ive lost count how many times Hozy has been banned yet no one is kicking up a stink about that, and really alot of them are before any of you guys actually signed up to this forum.

    so until people can wrap their heads around that this is the internet and you can ignore someones post - i will continue to clean the thread because it is seriously pointless, it IS done to death. so just let sleeping dogs lie.

    I wasn't gong to add to this but there are a couple of things I wanted to say. I don't have a problem with whoever that member may be and would quite happily sit next to him in a pub and have a beer with him, I did have a problem with those in the past (most of whom have left) who took personal shots at other members in a pack like mentality. While facebook and the like may have had some contribution to the demise of JC I strongly believe that what occurred in the past is now the primary reason for what is occurring. What isn't occurring now I feel is any attempt to try and stop the demise and rebuild the forum. Whilst what happened recently was done for a reason I think it has put even more people off side and actually put another nail in the JC coffin and it is made worse by it trying to be swept under the cover. I agree it's time to move on but there has to be a change to what is going on at this forum and some effort into rebuilding it, deleting posts and trying to erase any mention of the particular event isn't the way after all people posting about it is actually similar to what the aim of the other episode was isn't it?

    Most of the forums that I frequent are pure technical. Religion and Politics are pretty much banned or not mentioned. Believes are deep rooted in people's mind. Never ends well when they are challenged. So... is a better choice not to get on those topics.

    Some forums, to bring their numbers up as far clicks for marketing purposes, touchy subjects are encouraged. Drama (cacophony) make a **** load of clicks by people defending their cases. I think the correct term is Click Bait; make the ring leaders happy. See the political thread, is pretty darn long.

    Very good suggestion, but when a particular person creates a heap of different names, and some still current, it does make it difficult.

    Just for the record, I have no issue with this person that would warrant ignoring.....It's more of an observation, how a person screams out to be banned, then creates a few different accounts and have them active at the same time, with full knowledge of moderators

    I found it funny yesterday when I was on Facebook a page suggestion came up in regards to Commodores. I had a quick look & found that those who had problems with their cars, the admins would copy & paste the solutions from JC.

    Says a lot that , its kind of sad though that the guys who had a wealth of knowledge have moved on from here either because of the idiots or other reasons .

    Not really, it comes down to a number of factors. You have been around for a while now, have a large number of technical posts under your belt and are a donating member.

    There would be discussion with you via pm, something that will happen shortly.

    Due to two careers changes in 3 months (long story) I haven't been as focused or diligent on here, just hopping on to approve moderated posts and move stuff around, you have no idea how many newbies put their first thread in the how to section, seems no one reads the section description :)

    Will sort it all out.

    I think there's still a wealth of experience and help available from members who remain active on this forum. It's true that many have left but i don't attribute that to the way the forum is managed nor because of a few outspoken or belligerent members.

    The forum changes because it's dynamics change. Members who joined originally because they owned Commodores have moved on to other makes or vehicle types. How many moderators still own or drive Holdens? How many older members still own Commodores? I don't but my interest remains with this forum because of years of owning, modifying and restoring Holdens - not just Commodores. I'm not alone here.

    There are topics here far removed from Commodores. The Pub is a great forum to debate or argue your points even if you can't tell a spark plug from a bath plug. It's up to those of us who are still faithful to the forum to keep it alive.

    I own a rebadged Holden and drive it every single day. Is like having an Euro car mashed with an American muscle car. I am with Calaber on this one. What brought me to this forum was my car; I find more interesting all of you guys views and perceptions.

    Funny is... I got 2 small jars, one is Marmite and the other Vegemite. Took them to work and tried them. I can say it was quiet of an experience. Might sound silly, but, on my first post I asked and Calaber gave me perhaps, the best description. Is a developed taste I can say.... anyway, is like traveling without moving.

    Just for the record, one last time for those that STILL don't get it.

    I have ONE account. I have had others in the past but NEVER multiple accounts at the same time. THIS ACCOUNT is my ONLY account. It replaces Rajesh Koothrappali. I am nobody else.

    If there are other accounts that people think are me, they're not and those people are wrong! It's likely other people trying to make out it's me to get me banned. Grow up children!

    /end of discussion on this topic

    Jester's still around. Another one I've met in RL. Top bloke!
