Apologies for a banned member.

We had to ban a member today as the language that was being used was unacceptable.I am sorry if it offended anyone and hope that we can all carry on being the helpful happy community that we are. It's all about the cars 👍 Thankyou.

He did the same on the Drivers Club. Banned as soon as I could hit the button. What a complete and utter dick.

I sent you a report when I saw it starting at 0514 this morning. I have no idea why people do that, but he has absolutely burnt his bridges for sure.

Yes, he has been hijacking various threads. I think he regrets getting rid of his 86!!

He has had quite a few run ins with members rubbishing their builds. He also at one point asked his membership to be deleted but got it reinstated when he needed to sell his car and the parts. Now that its done and he had moved on, was rubbishing our car platform. Still surprised he lasted this long before being banned and curious as to who bought his car and how they felt dealing with him.

His car is for sale by a dealer on AutoTrader for an extortionate amount of money.

For reference I bought something from him just before all this started, and he was fine in that instant. But his attitude on the forum in general had been questionable for sometime.

Away from the forum he's actually a decent bloke and very honest. I've bought from him several times and never had any issues. If anything, he's been one of the better dealings I've had

People often act differently real life and in different anonymous-and-no-consecences online medias. Well, but as later are usually of much more numerous communities, just by statistics there will always be also ones that will get offended more, so of course best netiquette practice is to not swear/offend even more so then IRL.
