    MBWORLD GOING DOWN THE TUBES

    Not sure what is going over there but it is quit out of control with trolls. There is actually a thread where one guy admits to being a rent-a-cop and smoking weed on duty. There is another guy who admits to flying with a pilot and smoking weed in the air. WTF is going on in this world. It is going to hell in a hand bag.

    Why on earth wouldn't you smoke weed while working as a rent-a-cop. That's like the easiest job in the world.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I still think it's a cool story though.

    There are several reasons why and MBworld has been on its downward spiral for a while.

    1. We all know about the censorship. Posts get deleted left and right and the moderators would do well running a concentration camp.

    2. Evosport sold it to Internet Brands which means it is just for making money now. However, evosport also retained administrative rights for themselves so they can keep the competition out (MHP).

    3. Too big, too old, and too disorganized. Info is all over the place and it is not set up logically.

    4. Time for a breath of fresh air.

    Why was ADV1 Banned? Bad press from past?

    No need to keep your opinions reserved, this is not mbworld. Go ahead and speak your mind, I'm interested to hear it.

    It can definitely be entertaining at time, but I hate to see the overt censorship. Posts being deleted and issues being swept under the rug. I understand that Internet Brands is a business and needs to protect their sponsors, but what about the 1000s of forum members that are then left unaware and unprotected?

    Unfortunately, Evosport decided to sell out. So, what that means is profitability over quality.

    The thing is, the members put up with it. It really is a horrible situation, just about the worst censorship of any automotive board I have been a part of. So, you guys may look at it with nostalgia but it will never be what it once was and I was a member likely before all of you, way back in 2002.

    So, it isn't that it is going down the tubes, it's down the tubes, period. It is an entity solely designed around maintaining its power for fear of losing it and the lucrative market it currently controls. I don't care about the money, so that is the advantage I have plus you already know how it is with BimmerBoost. This is now the place for the enthusiasts to hang out and chat without the BS.
