If you don't like the admins here, you wouldn't like me as an admin either. I don't put up with the same kind of crap happening on the forums I do run. Further, I'm much more thorough in my bannings and making sure that when I ban someone, they stay gone. That said, I would consider it if there was a real interest.

You gotta be kidding me. A end to this site will personally hurt my neon experiance. I get most of my parts and there is still a chunk of people on here that race and do actually sell and buy things for their project cars.

Having a local neon site has been a very good thing for me and I would hate to see an end to this. If funding is part of the problem I would pay to support keeping it open

Greg & Joe,

it was fun while it lasted. I've enjoyed my time here and found out info that I needed for both of the Neons that I've owned as well as finding some good deals in the For Sale area, as well as giving some others good deals on things that I no longer needed.

Best of luck to you two in your future endeavors.

Dawm do you still have Neontuners?

If the admins want to jump ship I'll take over the domain and possibly hosting fee's if its not hosted out of someones back yard and appoint new admins/mods.

in spite of all our encouragement to behave another way, in spite of being fair, nothing changes.

the spite is worse than ever.

if the site stays on in some other capacity, the new operators will have some challenges. i'm a fan of "invite only" where the "inviter" is held accountable when their "invitee" acts like a douchebag. it fosters some self policing.
