Why don't you stop closing the threads. It's getting a little out of hand. Who do you think you are George Bush? Ever heard of the freedom of speech. On this forum I'd like to express my opinions, etc. I don't post very much anymore, and back in the day, threads never got locked. So relax on the power trip. I'm a grown up, if me and anyone else want to tell McCombie he's a complete piece of crap for wasting all of our time, then we should have the right to do so. I think he's the biggest loser ever. If you guys feel bad for him just because he says he is depressed, how can you fall for that? Gee, someone wrote gullible on the ceiling look. Maybe he is just a spoiled little brat with a computer, no friends, and who happens to be a pathological liar. Not going easy on him, I have the right to not go easy on him after he PM'd me a bunch of lies a few months back. And please explain why you feel the need to lock threads so much, this should be an open forum.

i bet he was completely justified if he was mad at you... and if they probably locked all of his threads and he got fed up with it.

So what is it people do around here these days? Send warm fuzzies to eachother and wish eachother happy birthday all day long? It seems like writing about disasters that turn out to be farces goes over quite well. Did I mention I own a Phaeton? 2 of them to be exact.

You know, for so many "Adults" to be here, I have never seen so many whiners. You want a foul mouthed slug fest, go find another forum to do it on. So the guy lied, it's your fault for trusting someone on the internet. Come on people, this is a CADILLAC forum, not the daily soap opera. This is one of the most decent forums I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of, but this lounge is becoming ridiculous. Instead of complaing why don't we all do what this forum is meant to do? Help people with their CADILLAC problems and have nice friendly discussions in the lounge, the way it was before this McCombie crap came around.

Katshot

I too, find it rather gullible of everyone who's still trusting the guy. I can't remember having any issues with him personally but he's obviously demonstrated quite a flair for spinning ellaborate stories (lies) so what would make you think he's telling the truth now? I always heard, "fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me".

Between you and AirJigga complaining about the threads regarding McC you are expending far more energy than necessary. You wonder why it hasn't been blocked - if it had would you still be complaining about it? You wonder why he hasn't been banned - if he had would you be gloating about it? So either way you are still expending energy on the topic.

McC is worth as much energy and effort as you decide to put towards him. If you choose to ignore him and his posts than what does it matter to you if he hangs around? There are A LOT of threads on this forum that I never even open, there are some threads I comment in and move on, then there are others that I enjoy to partake. All of these or none of these are your choices - as for this thread, I have commented and now I will move on.

02-03-06, 04:35 PM
i say kick him out. You can come at me with your girlscout reasoning all you want

The logical thinking is, that people have been kicked out for doing far less than he did. This is the 3rd time where he's made huge threads that had to do with him lying to the community... its going to happen again. Don't play favorites. the longer he stays around the less credibility this place has. Hey its one opinion but I'm not the only one. I used to wonder why someone so wealthy and successful would spend so much damn time on cadillacforums.com dominating the lounge, but I never thought much of it. Now I know why. Just put an end to it already. I personally don't want every thread infested with his posts, i won't read them. But then again...maybe i'll come around a little less then i already do.

Geez. I thought I was on the "Cadillac" of boards here. You make it sound like there are two people bitching here. There are twenty pages dedicated to a liar. What is to salvage? They guy doesn't even own a Caddy and now I can't believe a thing he writes? Salvage what? This isn't church it's the Internet. I come here because I like it. And I pay to be here. If I want to talk to liars all day Iíll find a BS site. Know what I mean.

So I wrote him a PM one time and asked him, How'd you get so rich?

this is his reply:

"Through simple hard work, and one masasive chance.
I am an architect, I am now at the top of my career tree, ten years ago I set up on my own, and that was a massive chance, and it paid off, many people would not be so lucky. I am now earning the amount my boss was when I left the local autority, we were still getting some decent money, enough to buy me a Bentley the year I left, but it wasnt what I could be doing.
The design industry is boooming, I suggest you taek that and run with it, you can make a fortune in computers and computer graphics, your name wont exactly be all over everything (alot of my buildings are anonymus, very few people know I designed them) and I like it that way.
Woek hard and it WILL pay dividends, providing you are in the right business. If you ont already learn computer graphics on a simple level, it can be beneficial if you want that career route.
I also think the word rich, although we both have different ideas of the word, isnt the right one, comfortabley well off is more appropriate.

No blood, no foul. That's all I'm saying.

Some members in the past have gone to other boards bashing us, stirring up other members, feuding, preventing others from enjoying THIS board.

Craig hasn't done that. He's always been friendly and nice, even if he wasn't really what he represented himself to be. He's the first person I've ever seen on this board who committed a transgression, and then owned up to it and apologized. RB came close once, but it was obvious he was carefully selecting his words and had plans to do it again.

Craig's little game didn't cost us anything, and there's really nothing to be gained by shutting him out. Enough people have shown forgiveness and an interest in getting to know the real Craig. So let's just give it a try and see where it goes.

This medium is so easy for this type of thing to happen that is does rather consistently. It's very common for people to put on a front on the internet. Losers can be winners, little guys can be big guys, the poor can be rich. It's really up to your creativity. I've found many people on this very forum lying through their teeth over the years. I just stop conversing with them but it CAN be both frustrating and even dangerous. Probably not so much "dangerous" here but still I think you get the idea.
Personally, I couldn't care less if he stays or goes but I think he did great disservice to the membership in general, and am genuinely surprised there are so many that appear to be ready to jump right back on his hook.

He is a liar, yes he is. He was a liar when he said his house blew up, but no one cared about that, if affected some, but not the masses like this. EVERYONE LIES at one point in their life. There are a bunch of pissed off people with bruised egos, because they got fooled. Humliated because they shared their thoughts and feelings with someone they thought they could trust. There is nothing that anyone can say that will snap ya'll out of your chidishness, so I am through wasting my breath. I am going to retire to the Seville and audio forums where I can do some good.

I haven't been totally honest here either. The difference is that I don't tell EVERYTHING about myself, only the parts I don't mind strangers knowing.

I'm a public figure, served my community/town, and my name and picture have been in the local papers two to three times a month since July. Without telling more than I want to, I can say I'm a pretty big fish in this little pond, and I even swam around in the big pond a time or two. I get invited back frequently.

I've lost all respect fo MC. I personally could care less whether he stays or not. I'll never respond to his posts again. My only real question is, what sort of contribution could he ever hope to make to this site now that he pretty much has nothing to offer, other than a somewhat twisted sense of reality. Before he was found out, he was a Cadillac owner in Europe, who had some technical knowledge, and seemed like a pretty cool guy. Now, he's just some 16 year old kid sitting at the computer in his parents house, wondering what to say next. I don't think the issue is whether or not we should ban him, but more along the lines of what do we have to gain from his continued membership. I don't know what he can offer the forum. Then again....as I said before, I really couldn't give a rat's ass either way. I think people have just gotten carried away with the whole thing, and blown it way out of proportion. Emotions ran high..people were frustrated, and things were said that maybe were a little harsh for such an environment as this. In the end though, he will probably not get banned, but will either find a way to contrinute to the forum in a constructive manner, or be shunned away for good.

As for the thread locking, it has occured to me lately, that the mods have gotten a little trigger happy with the lock button. Assuming we're all mature adults here (am I being generous with that statement?...I think so), we should all be able to deal with comments made on an internet forum. Due to the rather impersonal nature of the internet forum, people say stuff to eachother that would be considered wildly innapropriate in civilized conversation. Having said that, to a certain degree, the old adage, "If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen", still applies. On the other hand, it's a fine line as to what is pushing the envelop, and what is completely over the line. As an example, I would like to use the "John Stewart" thread, that was locked a little to late in my opinion (those familar with that thread no what I mean). HRS and myself went at it with guns blazing, and it was wrong. The thread was locked and that was the end of it. I haven't seen ANY threads in a long time that went as far as that one did. I do see alot of senseless bickering back and forth over trivial matters quite often though, but rarely do they require the need to be locked. In most cases, these threads simply fizzle out into nothing, after all parties involved simply loose interest and move on.

I'll end with this. The "Sorry...ect" thread should remain open for as long as it takes. People need to vent. It's a simple fact of life. They are frustrated with the situation, and feel the need to explain themselves, and how they feel abotu the situation at hand. That thread serves this purpose. Locking it will only result in a new thread (like this one...). As long as there are people willing to bitch, whine, and complain about any issue, there will always be a thread on it. Taking this into account, in my humble opinion, it would be best to simply leave the thread open, and let it run it's course. People will eventually grow tired and bored with the issue and move on.

the longer he stays around the less credibility this place has.

His presence here has nothing to do with the credibility of the community (that includes you). He hurt his own credibility. Not mine. Not yours. Not the community as a whole.

There are surely more people who lie about what cars they own (on this forum and others) than McCombie.. It's the internet. Deal with it.

Do you really think everybody you talk to on the internet is honest? People aren't even honest in person. You don't need to find a "BS" site to find liars. They're everywhere. They're here, they're there - they're across your street. So everybody is honest until they get caught? Should we make it a rule to ban all liars from this site? Or maybe one should pass a lie detector test in order to become a member... :p

This thread... its like a bad rash. You think you have it under control but it spreads somewhere else.

This thread... its like a bad rash. You think you have it under control but it spreads somewhere else.

On a serious note, the only time I disagree with closing threads is when they're closed for deviating from the topic at hand. EG: the thread started about cars may develop into a thread about something entirely different [and often more interesting].

I only frequent 2 internet boards and this is BY FAR the better of the two. I appreciate the intolerance of trolling, flaming, and people being general arseholes.


ETA: who's this Mcombie person everyone's going on about???? :hmm: :rolleyes:

Has ben72227 been banned too?? :confused:

I haven't seen him in awhile, and I know that some people didn't appreciate his views on domestic automakers, was he banned for that??

I haven't been totally honest here either. The difference is that I don't tell EVERYTHING about myself, only the parts I don't mind strangers knowing.

I'm a public figure, served my community/town, and my name and picture have been in the local papers two to three times a month since July. Without telling more than I want to, I can say I'm a pretty big fish in this little pond, and I even swam around in the big pond a time or two. I get invited back frequently.

Am I not lying and misrepresenting myself by not telling you who I really am? ;)

Or are you lying now? See what I mean? What do we know? Just what you tell us.

Well, shows how much I pay attention. I don't close threads except in a few very rare circumstances. If the thread's a clone (IE, double posted) If the thread has another on the same topic, I often try to merge the 2. If it's just turned into a cussing match, etc. Otherwise, I leave threads alone, and may step in and tell people to knock off a behavior.

He wouldn't kill me, but those Lakers tickets I was counting on in April would probably go to someone else.

That, and the invite to have lunch at Hef's would probably be revoked too.

OMG how did I miss this earlier?! :eek:

You are gonna have lunch at hef's??? WHOA!!!

So you actually KNOW him huh? So maybe he doesn't live in Canada? Or he is mailing them to you...hmmmmm lol j/k. I will just have to deal with the fact that he is famous and I will never know :thepan:

I thought I could go thru with it, but I just CAN'T!!! :halo:

Sorry, LB. I was playing you. I have no idea whether Tom is famous or not--you gave me that idea and I was working it.

Next I was going to throw in a Bloomberg reference, maybe even a Kennedy/Hyannis Port thing.

Then a Bush/Kennebunkport connection.

I made it all up. No Lakers tickets. No lunch at the Playboy mansion.

But on the "truth" side, I am temporarily a local celeb. Sort of a reluctant intermittent public servant. Probably will be in and out of the flashlight (not a spotlight) for the rest of my life. Glad I have an opportunity to serve the community where I can.

Hope you enjoyed it. Sorry. :rose: :rose: :rose:

I just think that seeing him act out those extremely awkard situations is just hilarious. When you watch Curb it's so obvious that George Costanza was just Larry David with a different name.

KC would let anyone have it!! :thepan:

I miss him! :thumbsup:

Katshot has mellowed a bit, makes for a more civil place, even if it's less entertaining. :yawn:

But now we have too many people who like to whine if people have a disagreement. Somehow they think that adding their whine to the unpleasant thread makes it pleasant. :bigroll:

I'll second that. ROTFLMAO :histeric::histeric::histeric::histeric::histeric:

Actually, Betty's power steering pump does that, too. Replaced the pump twice, replaced all the hoses, and it still leaks so I know she needs a fillup when I hear the whine.

Seinfeld was one of those shows where some episodes I was laughing my ass off ("master of your domain, "the braless wonder," "I was in the pool," "they shrink?" "they're real and they're spectacular") and other times I couldn't watch it because those people were so awful.

George, however, has not one redeeming quality. He got laid way more than he deserved to (speaking as someone who's not getttin' any lately).
