    I wish to apologize to all of you in the M156 scene

    I don't have to do this, but believe I should.

    Obviously things were chaotic here for a bit and I believe I allowed things to go too far due to my own actions. Even if I had a disagreement with someone that does not justify posting private messages not intended for public view and therefore I have chosen to remove them. The person involved was my friend and even though we are not friends any longer I can still act professionally and responsibly as is to be expected. Even though this action comes later than it should I am choosing to do the right thing now.

    I also wish to apologize to any of you that felt bashing was taking place. My only intention with the ECU thread was to expose a potential issue, that is all. Whether it be you believe solvent or CNC, the point is there are some options that can save you before a last resort of another board having to be purchased hopefully. This practice with epoxy should not be taking place IMO and it is important for those of you who choose to tune to be aware of what is happening to your property.

    I work very hard on this entire site (BenzBoost just being 1 of 5 I solely maintain) and take my work seriously. This board/site was created with the intention of breaking the mold of the other sites that have become commercialized and strictly business ventures for large companies with deep pockets. I do everything here myself and therefore have a close relationship with all of you. Whether I disagree with you or agree with you, I never intend to create any hard feelings. We have a tighter community here where the membership is far more outspoken and it sometimes leads to fights almost on a family level with things said that should not be said.

    I am not perfect and will strive to be a better administrator in the future. I will continue to bring you news and topics other sites shy away from to cover the whole scope of the tuning scene. Even if that means at times putting myself in harm's way.

    Thank you all for your support.

    Not yet, 100 points necessary. Put in to prevent abuse, I may lower the requirement in the future as the site gets bigger.

    Doesn't have to be, I take no offense. I respect you and still intend to have a drink with you if I am ever in your area. I also still intend to be a patron at your establishment one day if you allow it.

    It just didnt need to go that far. Stepped away and realized the site is bigger and I should behave more professionally.

    Sticky DID comment - you must have missed it:

    But that's besides the point. I just found the brevity of your comment funny - guess I have an odd sense of humor.

    Exactly, glad you understand.

    Same team here and all enthusiasts. So we can all get back to the positives hopefully.

    I'm glad that you're finally taking accountability for your actions. It's not easy to man up and admit wrong sometimes, but I will quote my ex-wife (she did teach me at least one important thing). "You must think before you act, because you cannot take things back even if you apologize, the damage has already been done."

    Also, I truly believe your apology is directed in the wrong direction. Just my opinion.

    Clearly he doesn't share my sense of humor. I'm sure I'm not the only one who got a nice laugh out of his "not accepted".

    Dodger - I wasn't laughing AT you. I found your response humorous considering all that has transpired. If was not personal - sorry for straying off topic.

    I'm happy to hear that you're finally taking the first step towards accountability and take the high road. Although I'm not always in agreement with you and you might not like what I have to say, I give you credit for writing a open apology. Lets hope that we don't see a repeat of this nonsense that has been going on lately. Private messages should stay that way. If you don't like what a vendor/member is saying or doing, you should say something then and not wait until there is a blow up to air out the dirty laundry.

    You response was good in my opinion I didnt deserve to have a private message I sent to someone posted on your sight.. its troubling, imo you went to war with Andy which is ok in my book i don't agree with many of both tactics, but it really had nothing to do with me? For you to post that was in bad taste, as yomama said you can't apologize in my book, the damage is done... I don't really care as this is a hobby for me and its not all that important..

    Understood, I don't find it humorous.. you of all people (out spokenness I'm refering to) I don't think you would laugh if someone published a text between you and someone else on a public forum? Maybe I'm wrong? And no I'm not a girl and over reacting just stating a few facts.. I've tried to keep my opinion out of this since it has zero effect on me
