Re: Sorry for the Snake story
First it's no big deal to have a post edited or deleted unless it happens over and over and that is why other than the short note the moderators typically don't follow up with a PM. Second the moderators appreciate hearing from the membership and there is no shame is reporting a post. Even with many moderators we can't cover and review every post in the forums here. My guess is about 80% of what gets edited or deleted was because members reported it.
Street racing and kill stories are not allowed here, the one that was deleted was about trying real hard to get the other guy to race, that's just as bad as a story about an actual race. We all take chances from time to time and we all have done stupid things and gotten lucky. Then again we've all heard the storys of those not so lucky on the street. I witnessed an axle go through the front door of a restrauant some 60 feet from where the car was when things let go! 20 minutes earlier there was a line of people standing in the doorway!! That could have easily been a childs bedroom window as someone does a burnout down an empty street.
That's one side of it, someone can get hurt or die. Another side of it is when most of us were kids and raising hell if something happened it was looked on as an accident in the public's eyes. Today you can be charged with man-slaughter if someone dies because of something you do in your vehicle! That puts how you operate your car in line with how you operate a firearm in the eyes of the law. This site has always taken the high road with respect to doing the right thing and will continue to do so.
Not trying to lecture everyone with this so I'll leave it at that...
