A Formal apology

Hello, my name is Graham, i built the Young Rodderz site along wiht another guy. I want to formally apologze for the way "66GMC" or "NOTACHAINER" acted on your board. this is a very neat board and im sorry to say that Kyle was a member of our board. He hacked some accounts on our board and he has been banned. I have left my own board and "The other guy is deleting it and starting fresh. Let me say that Kyle has gotten almost every car forum to dislike our site, including import tuner sites, streetrod sites, and fellow hotrod sites. He is not someone who you would want to have living near you or even know for that matter. I am very sorry for his behavior and this is a formal apology. Thank You for reading this, and please feel free to visit the new YR site whenever Justin gets it up and running. Thanks again, and i am sorry.

Graham

You should not need to apologise for someone elses erratic uncontrolled behavior, unless you had something to do with it. It is admirable that you do though.

For your information, we have a 66GMC already registered here who is a polite , intelligent 49 year old man from canada.

Your 66gmc (Kyle) was registered here as gmckid and notachainer. I myself believe that he had several other usernames as well. He (they) needs some medication or something. His parents really need to supervise him before he gets himself in some real trouble.

Why did you shut your board down?
It just doesn't seem right.

The truth is out there.

I think you confused 66gmc for gmckid but it's ok, couple other people mistake him for that other troll kid. I would like to follow up that by making a quote for that Kyle kid "Karma's a ***** ain't it?" Lol, alright but now that my lil quote is done and out of the way, things like that do happen on boards and unfortunately he did create alot of negative energy towards your site. I have nothing against younger people wanting to work on rods, some impress me greatly with their skills at such a young age (for example, Twisted here ) I guess he always just wanted to pick fights with people that had an opinion on what looked good. I was having a bit of fun riling him up, I admit that but who didn't want to take a shot at him for his uncalled for and blatant ignorance Well at least you seem to be mature and taking responsibility for his actions even though it's clearly not your fault. At least he's banned from the youngrodderz site so maybe things will improve for you over time. Hopefully we won't see that kid again ::crosses fingers::

sorry, gmckid went by 66gmc on our old board. not in relation to your 66 gmc obviously. we shut down the board because kyle hacked some accounts and screwed it over, we banned him, and he wont be allowed on the new one. The guys off the old board just wanted to start fresh i guess. clean it up and go by the KISS rule- Keep It Simple Stupid! im not sure if ill be hanging around it as much as i didn in the beginning of the old one, i left ours about 2 weeks ago and hang around here and ruffrodders and the hamb.

Welcome to the site hop up. Not the greatest introduction having to apologize for something you had no control over. Tell us something about yourself and you ride/project. You sound like we may enjoy having you on our board. Good luck in the future.

It is really strange that I can't find 66gmc on that youngrodders member list.hmmmm
I do find gmckid though. Named Kyle. I found a post where he's resigning his position as an admin, but keeping on as a mod. Strange. His last activity was just a few minutes ago, from what I can tell.

I saw a few somewhat unique names from this BB that I recognize, but the profiles don't really match, if there is anything listed in them at all.

I don't find anyone called hop up on the member list there either.

I guess it's just my New England ancestry that makes me want to be curious and poke around for no good reason.

Later, mikey

you will find as you grow older that kids like kyle will only get older but never grow into manhood. there is a difference. he knows little about cars and will move on to something else. hope your site survives . we have many mature rodders who act just as childish. some think as long as they have a mastercard and streetrodder mag they know everything.

Hop Up-

Thats better
With all the name swapping and split personalities that was going on it was hard to tell the players. Sometimes you have to pick at things to find out that they might be alright after all.

Welcome to the site. I saw your first apology post for kyle from over a month ago, as well as your introduction post.

Hows the 49 coming?

Shine is right about Kyle, but I'll go a step further.

Check out this thread and see how someones decietful ways can backfire on them. Kyle may well end up as this guy Nate Cooper did.
The SYCO Vendor From Hell

Makes for some interesting reading, and a just dessert when you get to the end.

Later, mikey

I don't think there is a need for you to apologize Hop up, I don't think this was your fault at all.
I am glad to hear that GMCkid has been banned from your site. If he had kept up posting on other forums like that. He would have eventually gotten you some bad members on there just to harass you.
When I origininally heard of your site, I had considered joining and posting there, until GMCkid caused his first round of trouble here. Funny thing was, when he apologized for what he did, then comes back and does it all over again
But after seeing your apology here, I think I might just join up over there and see hows the site doin. I could be of some help to ya'll, as long as theres no more trolls that decide to try and change people's opinions

Something doesn't seem quite right here.
I thought you said GMCkid was banned from your site, and yet he is still posting and I saw were he reregistered and asked to be unbanned.
Something sounds a little off to me.....

Yeah and Kyle/ 66gmc/gmckid is now "mr X" and lists his interests and location as "your mom." How many times does a guy need to change names.

How very mysterious

I think it wuld be cool for this site to list the IP addy under the username. I'm on several other forums that do that. It kind of keeps folks honest, if you know what I mean.

I'm glad I'm older now. It used to be that you learned a skill, got talented, earned respect for what you produced. Then you could develop an attitude if you wanted to.

Now you just skip all that useless preliminary stuff and demand respect because you have the bad attitude that deserves it.

later,
The baddest mutha that ever walked the earth and I've got the biggest mouth to prove it....(J/K)

It just seems strange to me that you would apoligize for the actions of someone else.........that just does not ring up right...........unless of course you are connected and do have a reason to apoligize. Maybe we need to check your IP.
