Today's interesting BenzWorld.org thread!


I'm guessing the "next Icarus" thinks that if anyone would come out and bash Benzworld or McLiar, they must be part of this forum. It was interesting for me to see haters of that guy come out of the woodwork when I had my issues.

I appreciate everyone sharing their experiences.

There will no doubt be others who will benefit from this knowledge as time goes on. 

In the mean time, keep a look out for that next interesting BenzWorld.org thread! 

Should you have extra time, this thread is the be-all of BW buffoonery.. And absolute classic - infamous even!

One thing I can say is that a different top level mod reinstated me and didn't seem to agree with the other top level mod. So, they may have some infighting at the top most moderator levels, not all bad. My opinion: w126 sub-forum bad.

 I have an acquaintance who is also a recent-past BW moderator, though on a non-126 and non-107 forum there. He left his moderatorship of his own volition, because the lunacy there overall just got to him over the years. (Smart man!!).

Anyway, from my conversations with him, yes there is a fair bit of disagreement and conflict within the hierarchy of moderators there.  I don't know how it works, but there are definitely some disgruntled moderators who try to do the right thing and are foiled/over-ruled by the "few" who seem to hold most of the power. I don't care, as I've been banned from Banzworld for 7+ years now.  But I have run my own forum for nearly 9 years now, with more than 7,000 members, and I have had a few folks over the years who are real nut-jobs.  You deal with them and move on; I usually give people one warning. 

SELLC, you do have an account on my forum and it's certainly active. The account has "Registered User" status which is a normal member.  I believe it's under the name "Sellc" even and you've posted using it in the recent past -- my records show that your last login was Aug 29, 2017 and last post was in December 2015. 

Cheers,
Gerry

 There are quite a few people out there who McLardass has burned/shafted/insulted over the years, that's for sure. Did you see his recent footer and the attitude about women it portrayed?  At least if you're going to carry those attitudes in today's world, don't advertise it on your shirt-sleeve!!  But McLiar is too boorish to realize what he's even doing in that regard.

The BW moderators make quite sure that any hint of dissent or calling out McLardass or other "protected regulars" over there is immediately squelched by ~BANNING~ or the thread is deleted. They suppress free speech involving their favored people -- which IMHO makes the moderators (particularly Tootone and Mohammed Grillz the Polish Prince) far worse than even McLardass.

The only thing I've been able to discern, is that somehow McLiar has some sort of leverage over one or more of the BW moderators (one of the more powerful ones), and this allows him protection somehow.

 I can tell you with absolute certainty that I did not log on to your forum at all this year... So maybe you have another SELLC on your board.

Well, if it's not you, then I'm going to de-activate the account as a Rex impostor.

Sounds a bit like Rastus, IMHO.

Cheers,
Gerry

Post 10145 - he surely knows it's me. Stir the pot

Post 10147 - bondovi (who i took the time to explain myself to in the whole mcliar drama) sets the record straight, and steps aside.

Post 10148 - HE says "don't start nuthin", when he was the one that started it

Post 10151 - He continues to critique my bogus ad that he should know was posted as a favor to Kalifornia, as if I was really trying to sell the car.

Post 10155 - He calls me shady and then seems to continue to pick a fight.  

GreenT is a POS too eh?

i really think that the w126 just has a bunch of bad seeds in it. People hang out there long enough and become friends with people that seem to truly be bad people.  The moderators of that forum seem to mostly protect their buddies I guess.

Yes, it is me Gerry, you guessed correctly. It got slow around here a few years ago, & after questioning what happened to you, was advised to check-out your forum for myself...

Anyhow, after realizing that both SELLC & PowerStroker were banned over your way, I thought I'd humor myself & see how long before I received the same banning, since I used Sellc as my user-name...However, I'm still active LOL !

That picture of ex-President Obama on Mt.Rushmore was a classic !

Yes I vaguely recall us having a chuckle about that.. That was awhile ago, 2015!

So Rastus was catfish noodling on Gerry's board... lol..

So it just proves my original account was deleted if Rastus was able to register another SELLC account on Gerry's board... I'll have to look for the thread, but I know it was probably pre 2015.

 GreenT continues to troll me pretty hard, jumping in on this thread after I mention the resident subforum troll.  He know's who is his.  LOL.

They moderated out the above, probably due to the Finns comment.

Havent visited in so long... I'm sure most of the old 126er's are either gone or one foot in the grave...

No doubt I have for sure built up seniority... I've got mold growing in my 560 older than some of these greenhorns they got on BW.ORG now days.

I'm still around and kicking.

Most of the old BW.ORG 126 crew are either departed (permanently from this earth) or have moved on because their cars died or fell apart.

Still going on 21 years with my 560SEC in August, 20 years with my V-8 "E-class" E500.

Have a basement full of 126 parts from 20 years of going to the wrecking yards.

Cheers from Maryland!

Who else is around here? Is that Ford diesel mechanic dude (Power Stoker?) still around? And the Australian Fukushima guy? How about that super rude guy who used to make fun of and call names to everyone here?

Well... well...well.

I knew something had to be pretty fucked up to have PowerStroker posting in the W126 section... and here we are! LOL

How the hell you been Gerry! Get tired of Texas? Last we heard you was drying out from the floods!

I've got three garages and a house full of w126 stuff too, mostly sedan... Still have Goldilocks, has to be close to 17 or so years... have aquired a few others here and there, mostly sports cars.

Still fixing cars, same business... same everything pretty much. You still running your forum over there? You know, the one you banned me from?

Hey Gerry,

Good to hear from you once again ! And yes, I'm still around, & still have the little 350SLC.

There's been very, very little news about Fukushima since Mr.Trumpdt made it into office, & pretty-much zero since Sleepy-Joe took-over...( They're trying to promote nukes believe-it-or-not, & take everyone for fools )...

I hope that all is well in Maryland !

I'm not sure why, but Rastus has had a boner for Ivanka Trump ALL NIGHT!

She is hot! So I can't fault him for it... 

You know who I really miss from BenzWorld.org? I miss Cascade! That guy... as liberal as he was. I have to believe, no... I "KNOW" he gave me my soft spot for California with his Grape Vine thread! I mean, that was just fucking classic! I have been trying to achieve that, and the last time I was in California with my Corvette I wanted to do the "California Grape Vine" tour! But as luck had it, there were SERIOUS wild fires at the time! That which would melt a plastic Corvette in some areas! So I guess that was Cascade saying "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"... at least while driveing a Corvette anyway! LOL!

So who knows... Lot's of time left, we should all celebrate the memories behind the wheel of a W126 Mercedes! Our numbers are indeed dwindling! doh

Clearly dude is unhinged... HELLO!? Gerry?
