Blow-Off Section

I removed the blow-off section, seemed to just make people argue and raise tensions higher not lower like its intention.

Please don't ask for it to come back, I am pretty dead set on my decision.

Thought I noticed something different. Just out of curiosity, but will this really fix the issue? I mean won't these post still occur in the off topic section now?

I'm not trying to argue or anything, just curious as to how you came to this conclusion.

Thank god. I think in all the years, I started one thread in the blow-off valve section, and it was because someone died and I needed to vent. It amazes me how some people have so many things that aggrevate them.

Hmm. I enjoyed the blow off section. That was actually IMO, one of the best parts of the forum that made it more personal rather than just coming on here to talk trucks all day.

I am kinda on the fence about it. One one hand, it nice not hearing about everyone *****ing about the last speeding ticket they got. But there were some legit venting that wasnt just an idiot *****ing about doing something illegal, then getting caught. We did manage to help a couple of members work through those things.

Its just a shame that some people let things get out of hand, not stepping up and just ending it. But I can see the arguments that are generally caused in this section to continue somewhere else. Not everyone is going to like each other. Where would all the fun go if everyone agreed on something?

Although it was fun seeing a couple of punk *** kids getting slammed time and time again by Matt lol.
