    xSwiggerx you need to grow up. It really detracts from the quality of the site when you sit there and rip on everyone. The guys that run this board do it out of the goodness of their heart. Have a little respect for that please. Personally I find your avatar to be offensive.

    oh yeah try rule number one...

    1. No personal attacks
    This includes, but is not limited to, name calling, racial slurs, personal threats, physical threats, badgering, etc.

    - When I "attack" someone, I'm really just trying to get them to realize how futile their attempts at pimping their car out is. I call it constructive criticism. The people who get pissed off at me just don't want to admit that their cars aren't really that great.

    2. No Foul Language
    No foul language of any kind is allowed. This includes 'masked' language, our filters are there for a reason!

    I'm pretty sure I've never used foul language without censoring myself. . .

    well an attack is an attack ... regardless of what your intention is and that does violate the rules. the people on here obviously enjoy their cars and working on them, and if they want to "pimp" them out, who are you to tell them otherwise. this site is here to create a community and make it stronger, not tear it down.

    as for cussing, how bout you just don't do it ... no need to take extra time to censor yourself. cussing really doesn't add anything extra to the conversation.

    it does say 'masked' language which i have seen and edited myself.

    I don't remember any such instances. "A**hole" is not masked language, and if it is, you're guilty too.

    Stop being a friggen fascist.

    I accuse myself of heinous thoughtcrimes and of corrupting youth by means of seditious literature. I performed acts of disloyalty towards our leader and have spread untrue propaganda. I stand here a victim of the influence of Siragan, highanddry, and TitoElSpico, guilty on all counts. I'm glad I was banned. I was mentally deranged. Now I am cured. I ask only for you to accept my love of our leader. And I ask only to be shot while my mind is still clean.

    I won't cry at his funeral...

    Anyway, i joined back When my scort wasn't even a glimmer in my eye... I have known Slapyo for years and it was after hearing him talk so fondly of FEOA that I registered, I finally paid after I got my Escoret and have been here ever since...

    It makes me sad that some people can't just come here and realize that everyone has their own opinions about how ot "pimp" their car...

    I joined because I wanted to learn how to change the oil on my mom's LX wagon. Man... I've come a long ways. I try to give back to the escort community as the escort community has given to me, and a cyclic, karmic way, to achieve escort nirvana.

    And I think that a lot of the disgruntlement has to do with modesty. Owning an escort is fine, but the rise that feoa has seen in the excessive pride in one's car seems to be the source of heightened discontent among the resident a-holes. They're just cars guys. Keep em clean, do neat stuff to em, but stay modest. Let the car do the talking.
    Speaking of nice talking... misfit's GT looks sweet. That's a good example to all the other guys imo. Nice job man... s**t looks tizzight.

    ^^What he said.

    On another note, I've probably come off as flaming some of you guys, when I'm just trying to be humorous. My apologies to all who were offended. I'll try to behave a *little* better in the future (if there is a future for me at this site).

    <3 slapyo.

    i wanted some questions answered about my escort and my mom's and didn't want to have to ask a mechanic. plus i wanted to learn more about my car.

    at first, i joined fordescort.net (r.i.p.), but there wasn't much of a community. shortly after i found feoa and stuck with it. later on i found erdt, but feoa seemed more friendly.


    afterthought: damn this thread grew a lot in one day!

    I joined when Matt came on the mailing list and said he made a sight, escortgt.com, and we had our first forum that I can remember. Some time later it was merged with another sight and became FEOA. Been here lurking for years.
