    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Unhappy Where has the 'FAMILY' feeling gone ?

    I've noticed that lately, over this past year or so, the general friendliness of this club's members has somewhat deteriorated .

    Can't believe how much 'slagging off' is going on !

    I've been a member for more or less 3 years and it just doesn't have the same feel anymore.

    It's very disappointing !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Oh, push off.

    It seems to happen on all forums. They get started by real enthusiasts, and other enthusiasts join up at first.
    Then people who just want information or help come along -some of whom, by the law of averages, won't always be so friendly. From some of the other forums I visit, it tends to go in cycles. In fact I seem to remember someone giving me a link to a very scholarly article which described the process.
    There will always be a hard core of what made Vectra-C great here, but others will come and go. If such people offend you, just ignore 'em

    I tell you, if i hadn't of made so many good friends through this site, some of whom go so far out of their way to help people out, in whatever way they can, i think i'd have walked by now !

    Cool love it here

    If its any consolation, i'm a new member and by and large i really appreciate the feeling on this forum for the most part.
    People are very helpful and cheery and i'm doing my bit to perpetuate that.

    And i didn't pay a bundle for my veccy.

    i'm not moaning but i found that a few month ago, seemed everyone was having a go at each other all the time..... so i solved the problem....... i stopped logging in!

    only came back on to see about passing on a few parts after selling the old girl and shock/horror theres now a members fee!!!!

    as phil says it'll go through highs and lows just like any long term relationship

    still one the best forums though

    now.... not being one to start a war of any sorts

    but i'm 39 years young i have served my country in the armed forces and in the police i've donated bone marrow to a complete stranger - i'm a fairly easy going kind of guy who doesnt let too much get under his collar and treats others as i would like to be treated myself

    as per the initial comment Phil .....saying that there is a lot of slagging off going on ... its rife in most forums that i have had the dis/honour of being a member of and some people rub others up the wrong way as much is the case in "real life" not everyone get one with everyone else - such is life

    but the thread then goes onto .....start slagging people off and guess what you then agree with it

    as per the front page

    Welcome to Vectra-c.com - the Vectra C / Signum Owners' Club

    Launched in June 2005, Vectra-C.com is the original club specifically for drivers, owners and enthusiasts of the Vectra C and Signum models - whether they are of the Vauxhall, Opel, Holden or Chevrolet variant. The club caters for owners of both standard and modified cars, and all trim levels and engine variants.

    i appreciate modified cars are not every ones "cup of tea" and i myself thank that some cars look rediculous ....but if the person who's modded there car then decides to put up their "pride and joy" we should rejoice and respect their decision as they have taken the time, money and effort .... if you dont like it.... then there is no need to reply to the thread so "slagging off" would not occur in and ideal world

    i know some people dont like my car.... but its MY car i've paid for it with my HARD earned money and what i choose to do with it - is upto me

    everything i've done on mine is by my own choice and if the car gets noticed and gives me the oppertunity to talk to other "like minded enthusiasts" about cars... then i feel thats great - i could revert my car to standard within an hour if i wanted to sell it tomorrow- but i dont want to- i'd like to feel that i have some input into the site and have the respect of some of my fellow members on here..
    i dont hang around car parks at midnight - i dont drag race my car and my 4 year old son thinks its the best thing since sliced bread

    so if your going to start a thread - at least have the mettle to stand by your initial post and not start contradicting yourself


    remember all families have their "black sheep" lol

    rant over - nuff said

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven
