Well, put me down for unmoderated.  Whats the big deal? If dave has a
problem with someone, all he has to do is warn them and if they persist
all he has to do is boot them.,..end of problem.

It's ridiculus to have to read all these

Well, you dont have to read them...I scan the msgs fisrt and if it doesn't
interest me, I hit the "D" key...For instance, if I see a topic like "Part
#'s for front struts", as a Pinto owner, I know I wouldn't br able to
answer that.  So I scan it if the thread has been goin on to see if the
topic has wandered, and if it hasn't I dont have to read it, just delete
Same with you. If you see "Dragging an SVO", and you never floored your

Not to be harsh but I know of someone who went away because of how ALOT of
time when someone has a problem they post about on the list, the poster
hasn't even TRIED to figure it out.   Its like, "I was drivin home, one of
my brakes started somoking.  I got home, ran inside, logged on, and here I
am askin what you guys think the problem is".  The one particular
individual got tired of stuff like that.
