As a former moderator on this site, there is a lot that goes on in the background that most of the community does not see. These are things that do not need to be out in the open, but handled privately behind the scenes. Honestly, I don't really miss being a moderator here because most of the time it is a thankless job. So I appreciate the hard work and dedication our moderators give and those mods who know they are unable to fulfil their duty who step down, for whatever reasons they have. I have lost a friend on this site as well as helped send one packing. All in all, there are reasons for it. I don't believe people realize how much or how long it takes before someone is actually banned from this site! You really have to do something worthy of such punishment such as banishment! LOL Sometimes, it is fun to talk about that car that tried to pass you but couldn't, but if we let that in, where would it stop? It seems innocent or harmless enough, however, how is racing at 30 mph at an intersection different from racing at 100 mph on the hwy at 2 am? There is still the ramifications of illegal racing. Would GVC want to promote red light runners? they are racing the light afterall. I used to make all kinds of excuses about not going to the track or that it was too far, too hard on the car, etc. But now that I have, I love it. I enjoy racing, the competitive spirit and the commeraderie of the other drivers and tuners there. Not just at the 1/4 mile track, but also at the solo events. Even our NASIOC chapter, we discourage street racing. And anytime someone posts something stupid about how they raced some guy, it's deleted but not until after several older and wiser members lecture and remind these young idiots, they are the reasons we do get harassed by the cops. Their actions confirm the profiling they do for people who drive WRX's and such. Then, the thread is locked, and usually warnings sent out. if it's bad enough, the mods will ban the offender.In my legacygt.com forum, you so much as hint about illegal racing, it's deleted and you are given a warning. too many warnings you are banned period.
