AJ was a nice guy but he had problems with some of LT's members and LT's plans for the future. When he resigned, I asked him to reconsider, then I accepted that his goals and ours were simply different. Some people simply have plans and agendas that differ so vastly from our plans for LT that they chose to move on. Honestly, this is best for LT, because if there is friction, it will continue until finally dealt with. Most understand, and I hope you can that as lead Miderator here I get backed into some pretty tight corners on a regular basis, and I'm forced to make descisions about the good of one vs the good of the group as a whole, whether it be 4-5-6-9 hundreds isn't as important as whether the Community is being the subject of unreasonable demands to satisfy the few at the detrement of the many. I've had to make MANY difficult decisions in my present capacity. My job is not fun, I assure you. However, the one final consideration I always fall back on in all my decision making is "what is best for The Community, over the Long Haul" !
I have tried many short term solutions over the last two years only to have them come back and bite me in the ass! I'm no longer interested in being intimidated or the subject of extortion. It's ONLY about the THE COMMINITY, their security and safety and well being from here on out!!!!!!!
JRV- Well said. I think you do a terrific job. LT has to remain professional...and one of the most important things is to ban people when they misbehave. You've made one or two tough decisions on banning I know of, and any level-headed person would agree with your decisions.
If you can continue to keep the fakers, loud-mouths and perverts off of LT then that would be great!
Let me tell you, and everyone, I've taken some serious heat and critisism for some of my decisions....and it ain't been fun being bashed and taking the heat,...but someone has to lead and take the damn stand against those who would tear this Community Down...there has been so many times I have wished it wasn't me ....but it allways was me...so I dutilfly accepted the responsibility and did what I must for the better good , took my lumps and moved on. This Community is so much greater than any one or two people.!! We ...WE...the Community have reached out and attracted the acceptapnce of the entire World .....not only am I amazed, I also feel a tremendous responsibility to provede each and every person a quality environment.
I could go on , but I can assure the members here a safe, quality environment and a true site filled with Car Guys and services geared towards providing out members with he best Car (lambo) Stuff!!!
