Just over two years ago I was banned from Edmunds.com Town Hall. It was hilarious. It started out as a discussion of the new GTO, escalated to defending the GTO, but over zealous Mod's let it get personal and myself and another well known Caddy Forum member were banned. Can't say I've ever tried to get re-instated. Nothing worth fighting for over there.

I was also threatened on LS1TECH.COM by the site owner for again defending the GTO. Similar circumstances. A lot of GTO bashers didn't like when I started posting pictures of Concordes and Camaros with the same front end and then Pig's snouts and the snorkel hoods of WS6 Trans Am's. Both of these incidents were over 2 years ago. Ahh, those were the days. Younger and foolisher? More foolisher? Most foolish? Yeah, that's it.

I won't "out" my partner in crime, but I'm fairly certain he'll chime in. :lildevil:

Edmunds is notoriously narrow minded and really doesn't enjoy any real banter back and forth. Nearly 50% of our posts here would be deleted there. I was never able to find anyone really knowledgeable about a given make or model. It was just a bunch of guys quoting magazine articles over and over and over and over..............You get the idea.

Edmunds is a circle jerk.

I've never been to edmunds. I've never been banned outright. I used to admin a forum with a bunch of immature little *****s, so I've done my share of banning.
