The users have done a good job of it, but they have grown tired and many have ceased posting regularly. The management has also gotten tired and has decided to try this course of action.

The off topic stuff did not stay confined to OT. Sigs, avatars, and short obscure posts referencing inside jokes would pop up even in Saab-related threads.

I got onto this site because I was ......
1) hoping to pick up information, and
2) wanting to pass along information .
I've been working on cars since back when Saabs had the gearshift on the steering column. So maybe it's a generational thing, but I'm more on the site for the shared interest and knowledge; than for some of the BS that gets posted. Anyway, I think of this as a car site - despite some of what gets posted. I certainly have nothing against humor, but the flaming and name calling is probably best left for another venue ...... Just my thoughts on the subject.

I agree some of the replies in technical areas are a bit much,having your opinions essentially shit on by dropkicks is annoying. If I want to get insulted I will put on my uniform and go to work.Or come home to the wife. I enjoy telling and sharing jokes, I post a few on here, but some members are jokes.

Theres a time and a place for everything.If you cant display a little decorum perhaps this may not be the forum for you. Heres one where they act like losers all the time. Don't let Saablink go the same way.

Wasting time in this thread...

There will always be people on TSL who will continue to be asshats and see how far they can push, no matter what rules and regulations and put in place but rarely enforced. Fine with me, it makes TSL what it is

I just take TSL less seriously from a technical standpoint. There's plenty of helpful members on this forum. Which is what PM is for. If I'm looking for a good laugh ill read some threads.

End this thread.

That is what I have slowly been trying to change. Every meet I go to, people complain about having to wade thru nonsense.
