broken XR8...

driving up doncaster road last night, i see a godawful accident, it must have just happened because the fire truck was still tearing down the other way as i drove past....
i dunno how it happened, but this is what was posted on another forum :
Quote:
Last night I went to the donny inn to watch the soccer, when I got there some of my mates were already there, they said to me, "go outside but dont look out the window" so i did!!! I was in f*&$#n shock!!! There was an R32GTR F*@(#D on the tow truck!!! And an XR8 battered also on a tow truck!!! Apparently the XR8 was pulling out of the bottle shop (which is no exit) and the GTR was hiking along Doncaster rd, Then the GTR hit the XR8 cause the Xr8 didn't look when he pulled out illegally and flipped about 4-5 times finally landing on its roof right in front of the doors of the actual POKIES bit!!! This thing was f&#*#n mangled!! And the guy got out, he crawled out himself!!!! Lucky barstard!!! The XR8's wheel along with the disc and brakes, (the lot) ended up about 100 metres away from the accident site!!! I couldn't beleive this stack!!! The GTR WAS mint, had a huge front mount!! But I guess he is EXTREAMLY LUCKY TO WALK AWAY FROM THAT!!!!!
i hear that everyone walked away from the accident, thankfully!

p.s. the message had to be slightly edited to make it a little less obscene

What I want to know is how that type of language is permitted in the public forum which is supposed to be suitable for users of all ages etc.
WHERE ARE THE CENSORSHIP PPL?????... and ... WHERE DID MY JOKE GO?????

laminge> I posted a joke last night which had disappeared from the forums this morning - one of your censors knows of it and where it is - it had no obscene language and was no worse (in my opinion) than others yet it was stolen from the forum. There is quite some amount of hypocrisy around here I'm afraid.

Dammm

You certainly know how to twist my brass monkeys the wrong way!!!

If you got an issue PM the the person, dont air it on the forum, this was discussed in great length last time we went through this!

If you got a problem with a thread., or its content, use the report button, like everyone else does!

I am usually on line most of the day and am more than willing to help.

And while we are on the topic of jokes, be reasonable people, after all its a FORD FORUM!

/end rant!
