Soon seeing the dark of deletion and the light of heaven
A certain thread has been deleted. I have not deleted a thread before, but this had to be done.
I am taking yesterday evening's personal attacks of a respected club member very seriously, as the club is like family to me. A small band of gutless opponents of the FF/E-Series merger remain, and will take every opportunity to attack and belittle us. Ultimately, they want us to leave and stop disturbing their community with our absurd talk of EAs not being shitboxes. Heck, I would hear out their problems if they expressed them in a respectable manner. The attitudes of sadistic schoolchildren exist herein, and we cannot control this.
The thread in question was saved to my hard drive for reference purposes, and then deleted for a simple reason. It was no longer about a heavily modified EA Fairmont Ghia. It was an outlet for that despicable minority to ridicule us, as a club. If you think it is absurd that Falcon enthusiasts are attacking other Falcon enthusiasts, I agree.
Still, the damage is done. In the event that any such outbursts occur in the future, I will have no choice but to apologise like hell to John for wasting his time, and then start a new forum elsewhere - which would be terrible considering that the vast majority of people here on FF are very warm, tolerant, mature and receptive. I cannot stress this enough.
It is 2:30 AM here and, yet again, I simply cannot sleep until I take action. However tired I am, I know how these people operate (heck, I wrote a book about them) and I can predict that they will respond here claiming that I am a fool and have no sense of 'humour'. The only joke here is their attitude. I am keeping a very close eye on the situation.
