The group voice offers moderation. The mob voice offers anarchy.

I think the difference here at WF is that there is enough common interest with the Jeep heritage to hold the crowd together as a productive group. The Jeep heritage is bigger than any single member, but membership is critical to supporting the heritage. It's a self regulating process. The group voice protects the community.

I have so many usernames on so many 4wd forums I almost need a spreadsheet to keep track of all of them.

I know what Pirate4x4 is and what its about, I'm on many boards that are as bad if not worse.

A wise man once told me to treat your family with the respect you'd give a stranger. If you met me in a dark alley, you would show me respect, because I'm big, maybe a little scary and you wouldn't be sure if I might knock your teeth out. But, we treat our friends and family with disrespect often, because we feel we can get away with it. We know they won't knock our teeth out. The internet is the same. No chance of getting a beating. I think the lack of fear of getting a beating (from parents, teachers, cops) is one of the problem allowing our society to get so out of control. Just my $.02
I agree with you. When there are no real consequences, there is no reason for people to be responsible for their actions, in their minds.
