    Not really true, at 2guyzandsumtrains.com we only have one rule and that is to have fun. I think the greed word may be kicking in here!

    Hi Jim, I think you're misinterpreting what Mikey is saying. He is saying that other sites don't have that rule, but CG sites do, so the conflict is on this end, not anyone else's.

    One of my ex's said: Don't call,don't write,don't send a telegram and I'm not in the book....:eek:

    And like Rodney Dangerfield said"She was a earth sign..I am a water sign together we made mud." Indeed.

    Say What?

    There are other places you can go my friends, you don't have to be pressured into sadistic ways of total control. This was proved with through history. Our hobby is our own! You don't need this bull crap! Move on and let these b*****ds drown in their own sorry.

    Say what?

    This is still a free country right? You guyz don't seem to understand! you make this site, not the ones who want to make money from your hobby! The old folks from the big blue "The Gauge" were friends passing on their knowledge to everone of our great hobby, now they want to use you as pennies in their pocket? Get real! Move on and let them go!

    It isn't that simple, unfortunately. The driving force behind the forum has to be moving in the right direction, as well as the aims of the members.

    As for your statement re the "old folks" from another site being after the pennies in your pocket, there is no truth whatsoever to that statement. Feel free to post your proof that the old moderators and administrators wanted anything at all except the promotion and enjoyment of our mutual hobby. Keep in mind that they all elected to remain as ordinary members, rather than abandon their friends.

    By the way, you may find yourself thrown off this forum permanently by the new owners if you keep mentioning certain things. I understand that CG has a rigorous policy against mentioning competing sites which they do not own. That is a friendly and hopefully helpful piece of advice.

    If that's the way it is so be it. I think they can ill afford to kick everyone off.
    That's just my opinion.sign1

    I agree with you, but they don't appear to be off to a very good start, nor particularly interested in any of us.

    It'so use to run down this forum, nobody's listening! wall1wall1

    If you want to know where everyone went, just ask. :mrgreen::thumb:

    I was very pleased to see some of the old names again!

    If you like it here, I'm happy for you! But some just decided to get back "on track", so to speak! Let's not mark this joyous occasion with animosity? I thank Crowdgather for providing us the new opportunity, even though it was an unintended gift!!:mrgreen::mrgreen:
