Is enough to frighten away any noob thats not technically minded, and who is looking for a decent forum to join.
17k members? the sound of their silence is deafening.


A few years ago I had a trawl through my own 7000odd posts and found the vast majority were in the lounge section.
So now unless I contribute in the technical sections I try not to post in the lounge.
My neice said she was the opposite when she was on here; she posted more in the LR section than elsewhere.

Evening people.

This is the first time i`ve looked in since I deleted my profile and I only looked as I had had so many messages asking me to look.

That’s a ****** of looks


Cheers for the kind comments, but I wont be coming back to difflock as it is at present. I left due to the complete tosh spouted by the self appointed head moderator who has never moderated a thread that he has posted in……. apart from the ones where I proved that he had and the one involving dxmedia that he AGAIN claimed that he hadn’t, then promptly did……and yes, we know you used to own 50% of the forum, you keep telling us…..yawn………

Ian, your comment that “Since GED left a lot of old members have returned to Difflock and started posting again. “ is also slightly misleading as they had already started posting before I left. If you remember, I was part of the thread when they came back and agreed to post more ………
Also your comment about not posting technical help? Why don’t you get rid of the non technical sections then? Oh yes, because our sport is as social as it is technical. How many people go to 4x4 events and don’t talk and chat to other people? And don’t forget you owe me a go on that SLR of yours……..

Joinerman, ivor, wavey, stu, and all, life is good. Still collecting oil, still burning it and still the same.

Nightbar, was thinking about you last weekend whilst onboard “lusty” for the day with jake

Twiss, you do a good enough job yourself mate…

Oshiman, get my number off spannerman and let me know when you are over.
Anyone else who needs me, spannerman will give you my contact details.

Gentlemen, thanks for your concern and may you all enjoy good health.

Remember………







He used to own 50% of the forum you know………………..


Lets see how long this lasts..

Best wishes

Ged. Dancing

The point I was trying to make was that most people come to Difflock for the technical sections. They are looking for technical advice. If they get it hopefully they will stay and become part of the community and take part in the more social sections.

As I've already said purely an observation that may be right or wrong.

so what your saying is just hear say .
have you ever been on the to northwest4x4 website ? feel free to have a mooch if you want to , by the way the names graeme .
alot of what happened on nw was ged defending himself , pretty much the same as any one else would do . i`m not saying he can`t be controversial because like any one else he can , we all have our own views and ideas and like any other gathering people views will clash from time to time .

All internet forums have these problems. If I typed in the manner I speak I would be deemed to be ignorant or rude or whatever BUT if you knew me you would see that I am none of those. There will be a few groups of people on here who know each other and understand the person and not just the words that they type. It is very easy to say what you like on the internet to stir up a hornets nest as there is no real come back apart from getting booted from the forum which if you are that way inclined is no big deal.
Difflock is a great knowledge base, when I was doing mods to my SJ I was constantly on here, now its done I only visit every now and then.
Could Difflock be a victim of its own success ???
With a technical forum that covers so many vehicles there will always be banter between the marques over which is best, I have a CJ7 that I use and get stick from people, usually from a certain make but so what its just a car. If it was my wife or kids I would get upset but its just a lump of metal.
If you put the amount of regular posters on the forum in a room and started conversations it would be bedlum after a while, the mod's do what they think is right BUT they are only human and will make mistakes as do the rest of us. Their moderating of any topic can cause the same problems as asking someone what is the best 4x4, and before you know it a load of grown ups throwing their dollies out of the pram.
Ged's post were always fun to read, but his leaving the forum will not kill it. It will certainly be a quieter place the only people who can really kill difflock are the people who fund it, all the rest of us can do is mess it up but in time it will get sorted.

To finish, the best 4x4 is as quoted by someone "mine" the make is irrelevant.

Hmmmm, if we are all electrons and "a certain member" is so controversial, that would make him a positron.

From Wiki,
The antiparticle of the electron is called the positron; it is identical to the electron except that it carries electrical and other charges of the opposite sign. When an electron collides with a positron, both particles may be totally annihilated, producing gamma ray photons

Gamma rays!!!!

Does this mean he goes green when he's angry?

You know what? I am fed up to the back teeth with this f###ing stupid he said this and I said that. OK so GED has his mates on here and so does Richard and that is fine. BUT when it gets to this stage where people act like spoilt little kids I have had enough. I came back this week after a break because of just this purile spat and you know what? It aint worth it.
I get on well with both parties and I am proud to call them both friends but this is going on and on and its bloody boring.
Its more like being in a primary school than an internet forum with a vast amount of expertise and knowledge.

This thread is doing nothing except causing trouble and tension and in my opinion should be quarrantined. No one or two people are bigger than the forum. If Difflock is so bad for ANYONE then leave, dont purposfully try to drag the rest of it down with you.

I have seen GED do things on here and have moderated him just as I have Richard, 9/10 they just accept it and move on. How about the rest of you stop fighting other peoples battles and do the same. Its embarrasing.

Colin.
