I would only suggest a report button on topics or posts for the eventual spammer or wannabe.

FYI, there is a Report button. It's the red-triangle-icon below every poster's name, in every post.

I would say more moderation is required.

Generally, the people and discussions and very good. But when things go bad, effecient and effective moderation can help making this board even better.

Moderation is fine here...there isn't enough traffic for things to get too out of hand. If you frequent any other major car message boards, you quickly realize how civilized it is here.

I feel the level of Moderation at this time is not only effective, but it has a nice interactive touch as Mark and Dan are on the front line almost daily so to speak.

Agreed. I am also a member on the Sport Trac forum, CobaltSS.net (ugh), SVTPerformance (double ugh), cadillacforums.com and the tiburon forum. What I've seen here is the best administrator presence of any online medium.

This is the main part of the board that I visit. Having Mark and Dan here is great. I no longer venture into the off topic forum as I enjoy learning more about the beasts and not fighting about politics.

Personally, an occasional dustup breaks the monotony of the daily grind, and there are many opportunities to question the veracity of the opinions and comments that are occasionally displayed as indisputable truth.

Diversity of opinion makes the world go-round but cowards should not be allowed to private message insulting commentary in reaction to public questioning of their outrageous opinions, and then report an inflammatory response which would have never been generated save for their idiotic personal attack.

I would suspect that many of us on the board like fast cars and are aggressive and there should be allowances made for Type "A" behavior. Nuthin' wrong with that. It is entertainment after all, and not anything more.
