Whats wrong with some people?
The slotcar community is a pretty cool bunch of people who enjoy the hobby and enjoy sharing their experiences…..this is what I thought, but after some exchanges with a few so called slotcar enthusiasts I am not so sure anymore.
Some members of some forums are vicious types….they operate in groups and when they see a victim they troll and bully that person continually.
If you support someone they don’t then you too get trolled, bullied or harassed.
This has been seen on the SF forum over some years and it sometimes occurs here.
Don’t criticize anything they do to the slightest degree or you become the target.
I am sorry to write this and put it up on a public forum and no doubt inconvenience the moderators but I have to get it out of my system. Apologies to the Mod team.
For instance….I recently contradicted or questioned a person on SF and then received a threatening message from a member here. Why would that happen? Because they are both in the same group of aggrieved people.
Lets take a sample from the latest PMs
“Be grateful you haven’t been exposed….yet” and “You have been warned” and “no need to reply….you have been warned” and “If you continue it online on any forum I’m going to have to let everyone know what you did and how you did it along with all your BS threatening PM’s elsewhere”
Now it is easy to fabricate words as I could have in the above statement but these are quotes from PMs recently received. I am sure moderators can read PMs if they need to.
In the past I have been asked for my address and email so legal papers could be served on me because I somehow offended/criticized/questioned the guy.
If by posting this statement I am asked to leave Auslot then so be it…..but I am just giving everyone a heads up about the wonderful world of slot cars and the sort of people who inhabit the forums.
Regards to all
