    Basically some guys wanted to start shit instead of talk cars, and since we're not interested in that, those members left. The rest of those guys who are still into cars are still browsing the forums in invisible mode but not posting.

    And since some of the members who left have taken things super personal, including stooping to attacks to other members on other sites, in person and even going after their wives, things around here have been quiet.

    It's cool though. We're still moving ahead with our Drag Race and other plans for the summer.

    No one's been coming on PittSpeed to start anything; look around.

    It's a few PittSpeed guys who have gone on NYSpeed (like green did HERE) or have been trying to fight guys in the network sections like Darkstar did HERE.

    I don't see any threads started on PittSpeed by other network forum members saying "fuck you PittSpeed."

    I know none of you guys asked for this merger to happen. And I don't know your history with Whitey, love him or hate him. But I'm a car guy; that's why I'm here. If you're here for automotive reasons we'll all get along. If you're here to bitch and moan about the change or waist your time trying to undermine these communities, don't expect sympathy.

    Yeah the internet is serious business, lol. Life goes on.

    The track we're going to is more like street racing and not really the best if you're shooting to get your fastest ET. Norwalk definitely beats it!

    Dead as a fucking doornail. I lost interest in stop-light racing when I was 16, so no need to BS with douchebags doing it two states away as adults, lulz.

    What happened?? this place used to get hundreds of users a day and was ranked with bigboards. I guess we all got old and aren't as interested in cars as we used to be.

    everyone left because they didnt get along with us and took over the board. Simple as that. I dont have a problem with anyone here, but if the forum was suppose to be seperate, then leave it at that. But they couldnt. Same way they are still posting here. Moderating pittspeed from the other subforum. Basically, this is nolonger pittspeed. Its nyspeed with a pitt subdivision. Makes no sense to me.

    Oh well, we all moved on to bigger and better things. NOthing lasts forever. Another forum was started. A place where there is freedom. South Western PA Motorsports fans will enjoy. Look for it if you are looking for where everyone went

    Figured that would happen. You dont own the members here. Who cares if they leave this site and go browse another? You gonna ban all websites too? Because I bet people visit more than one of those..not just this place

    Oh man... I haven't been here in a few months. This is corpselike. Should I turn the lights off on my way out?

    Honestly though, the board was on life support before this happened. I wish these guys luck, and I'll see you guys on Facebook.

    I still maintain that a Geo Prizm is just as fast as a 2.0 Jetta.

    Bummer to hear all what has happened; I joined PittSpeed.com in hopes to find more get together, track events and overall car talk, guess that won't be happening much. I belong to a couple other forums but they're world wide, was hoping for a more localized forum.

    Communities always change as time goes on. The reasons are many, but the process is cyclical. We'll be keeping the lights on

    There's a difference between mentioning a site once or twice verses posting it / PMing it so many times that our software picks it up as spam and auto moderates, lol. We obviously don't have a problem with other sites because we're not on them spamming PittSpeed in the same way some have done on here.

    Wow, I was away for 3 years, I just got back and there is NOTHING going on here.

    I wonder if the guys still meet up at the Miracle Mile in Monroeville.
