lr4x4.com gets a mention in LRM

Recommended Posts

How sad that Trevor "I'm not bitter!" Cuthbert felt the need to write about lr4x4.com in his forum column this month! Obviously running out of interesting things to fill the space! :rolleyes::rolleyes:

I'll type it here, rather than scan, in case Trev reports us for copyright theft.

PEOPLE CAN BE SO NASTY

NO NAMES, but the friendliest Land Rover Forum on the Internet" didn't do it's reputation many favours recently, when one of it's long term members was subject to a barrage of abuse and insults, on more than one thread. It was a bit of a feeding frenzy and not very pretty.

The Administrator (eventually) pulled the threads, but not before at least three members decided that the forum was not really so friendly after all. Happily, these members have found a home at www.landroveraddict.com, where they can be guaranteed not to receive anything more than gentle banter and plenty of advice on running their Land Rovers.

By the tone of his piece and use of descriptions like "barrage of abuse and insults" Trev's unbiased reporting really show's through. Also you wouldn't guess he had a chip on his shoulder in the way attacks the actions of 'The Administrator'.

I just think he's sad, and personally I think the forum has been a better place without HBR's imput. LR4x4.com is back to what it used to be, a predominantly Land Rover tech based forum.

Cheers

Steve

thing is... the landrover addict forums are just dead... even though they've got a magazine backing them...

theres just not enough through-traffic over there to make it interesting or worth visiting.

Bigfoots article in the magazine was just pointless, trying to pad out his page because theres nowt happening on the LRA forums... its a shame, but it proves that there wasn't the market to split and keep that one going.... this place continues to grow, and improve, whist the other one is just stagnant.

i agree with you steve, this place has been better without HBR's input... and her little mate.

Oh the irony of the comments, having read the above people still continue dishing it out when they more than likely aint met the people face to face to get the real picture and say it in person. Or do people lack spines on this forum, easy to tap a keyboard than be a man afterall.

Since I've already arranged to meet a work colleague at Bunny Lane tomorrow I'll be there, you can't miss me, I'm the one with the grin enjoying myself being out and getting stuff done and enjoying my truck, rather than wasting hours on a forum being vile to people I aint ever met. If you got a problem, say it to my face, if not, wind your neck in because you obviously too narrow minded to speak to a person face to face to argue a case

Go on, ban me like the others for voicing an opinion!

I have nothing personaly against Master Minivin or anyone else for that matter on this Forum but....

If you say you are leaving this forum, don't come back just to add fuel to the fire. :ph34r:

I am a fairly new to this forum and find it invaluable for technical stuff. The off topic posts are generally good quality, not just guff like a lot of other forums.

There will always be some kind of b!tching and clashes of personalities but hey lets just live and let live.

It's a shame that Trevor has to stoop to sniping at our forum. I thought he'd come to terms with the mass exodus whilst he collaborated with The Green one about the forum takeover.

The events that happened didn't leave a terribly nice taste in my mouth but seemed to be supported by the majority and so was probably justifed. He has an account here, if he felt so strongly about it, he could have posted his support in that thread. Still I suppose it's not like Trevor to do anything out in the open is it ?

So glad you get out too minivin. :) Exactly who are you talking about here??

You can air your opinions to me face to face if you wish. If I don't agree with them I'll tell you so too. ;)

Oh by the way, get your facts right, no one was banned.

Minivin I realise your loyalty to HBR keeps you away, but I never felt you had any reason to not feel welcome on here.

I lurk to talk to the people who have giving me parts and assistance via PM, if I see them on other forums, I talk there, but with the likes of the person who gave me the V8 bell housing cover (damn, can't remember name), I every now and then give them a PM with a piccie or something just to let them know that their parts or services have been put to good use.

So glad you get out too minivin. :) Exactly who are you talking about here??

Well, come that day it'll be nice to have a debate knwoing that it can be put over in a manor that befits discussion

Now that is interesting, because two people have told me otherwise...... we'll agree to disagree until further solid evidence comes forth as I can see this one being of two ways, namely true or false information

Anyhoo, I wouldn't have posted if it wasn't for the following:

and her little mate.

Now, if that aint petty and not asking for someone to defend themselves, then I don't know what is.

Anyhoo, just got the money out for fuel, I'll see anybody who does turn up at Bunny Lane tomorrow, see how the truck behaves on climbs and decents with it's new engine and transmission....

We regularly delete spammers (users who've signed up solely to post ads, usually for porn sites :angry: ), but to the best of my knowledge in the entire history of LR4x4 we've never deleted any other users.

Minivin, what engine/tranny have you got now? i recall (before all the **** started flying) that you were toying between a V8 and a 2.5 diesel....

which did you go for?

(please be diesel... please be diesel....) B) B)

I haven't read the mags much lately - got a bit bored with them - I do read LRe but I get that free for marshalling a Bling, BUT if that is a quote how do you know he's on about this forum? I've not browsed here as much lately as life has been getting in the way but I didn't notice anything.

I mean 'barrage of abuse and insults' he must have meant ORRP surely ?

Although saying that I've never seen ORRP advertised as the Friendiest forum :D

If any moderator or administarator feels that a member needs banning, then the matter is discussed in the A&M forum at length. I have deleted/banned 5 -people without any consultation because they have all been only posting porn links or similar carp in the Defender forum (where all the pervs are :P ).

No other forum member has been banned. HBR, Minivin, Dougal, et all are all full posting members.

The only current control of any forum member is on Mr Wuffles, imposed by myself and approved the next day, for abuse and foul language. His restriction is his posts have to be approved before they are visible to everyone else.

I think that if the moderators felt that a member will be banned, then an announcement stating the reason for it would be posted for all to read.

Apart from that, I don't understand why Bigfoot has decided to possibly start a cat-fight with this website. His comments in the magazine are stupid and childish. I'm surprised that the publishers allowed it to be honest.

Les. :)
