My personal view on it is this:
If someone wants to give their opinion about experiences with another website, vendor, or whomever in this forum, they should be able to voice said opinion good or bad (within the host site rules, obviously). When you can't do it constructively, threads get locked and/or vanish. What good is THAT?
As an owner of another car-related site forum, I understand not everyone will be happy with the way things are run at your site and will talk about it with others. I don't troll other websites to take my site's dirty laundry elsewhere. I don't care because I cannnot control everyone else's opinions. And our PM's are actually private. I can't see what other people write to each other. As it should be. To do so otherwise says to me you're micromanaging people's actions and it only leads to more unrest. Apparently someone at C5 got butt-hurt and felt like they needed to air out C5's issues on THIS forum instead of keeping it at their own house. Trival and immature at the very least, because that doesn't help matters, it only inflames them. It surely didn't help C5's overall image IMO and it was sad to see. I'd expect it from a Mustang site, but not another ally site. We should be helping rather than attacking each other.
As pointed out, BOTH sites are dedicated to Camaros, and both sites serve different needs for different folks. I'm a fan of sharing ideas and information and make for everyone's benefit by debating the issues, not attacking the messenger when there are disagreements. I'm not into pissing matches to see who's is bigger and I see more of that on other sites. That's why I chose 5GO/Moderncamaro.com as my 5th gen "home". This doesn't mean C5 or Moderncamaro are better or worse than each other. C5 doesn't fit my needs as much is all.
Every site has good folks looking to have fun and talk about their favorite things. And every site has problems and problem children, but IMO, Moderncamaro has far less of them per capita than other sites.
