    What is the difference between a good forum and a bad forum? Only two things.

    First....involved members. People who come to a site to share a common love of something...like motorcycles. Everyone gets pissy at times....and needs to be called on it by another member. Self moderation, if you will.

    Second...involved moderators. There must be a clear set of PUBLISHED rules. These rules must be sacrosanct. By this I mean....the rules must apply to all members and MODERATORS at all times. You can't stomp on the Indians and let the Chiefs get away with murder (yes...pun intended). You can't be fluid on the rules...they must be hard and fast. You screw up.... you get called on it. Ignore the warning...you are out. No exceptions.

    If this can be the rule rather than the exception.... you will have a fun, informative, and lasting forum.

    Semper Fi,
    Z

    For me, it's being able to say what's on your mind without being censored.

    This one is far worse than the other one in that regard but I was made aware from the onset that would be the SOP so I deal with it.

    Sorry..........all your daily emails to moderators and complaining and drama did not do it. I was told to stop answering 'baiting posts' from the usual crowd about political and other things. Guess its OK to bait and agitate there but not answer back. Truth is, its not worth it. Mostly like the posts about Harley going broke before the end of the year and dealers abandoning their stores, ect. I did check with a few I know still at corporate HD and all is well, dealership placement is at an all time high with lots of applicants, the M8 outsold the entire Indian line - up within 38 days of release and I do not see HD folding soon like many have posted.
    But apparently some did get the axe there. I thought you agreed on a truce of sorts a few months back (?) Just relax..........and take another road instead of pot stirring.

    We have a really good site because so many of us left the other one. We work on policing things and don't let it get out of hand. So hopefully you'll keep that in mind. If you haven't read the rules, you may want to as they are enforced. :D

    Well if makes you feel any better, the pendulum has swung way the other way over there..
    Threads, posts continually being locked or deleted... member threatened.

    It's as if the Indian world exists in a motorcycle vacuum..
    I think if a person is so skinned, it's a good thing almost everyone wears leather:eek:.


    I think a knee jerk reaction is going on and it's almost impossible to have any lively exchanges..
    I'm referring to the off topic section.

    I have very little experience in the other parts of that forum.. and assume it was for specific issues related to Indian.
