i once saw a similar site for Chrysler - much more entertaining -- they claim Chryslers are prone to some steering failure at high speeds - caused several deaths.

well....at least there's the least amount of complaints for the SLK, and they're all the same problems - brake lights, etc. common problems.

Yeah, I've read your posts, and I'm very sorry your SLK turned out to be a burden. Every car manufacturer has problems and again, sorry it had to happen to you, but could you please stop saying "OMGOMGOMG LOLOOLLOL MY SLK SUCKS ALL SLKS SUCK SLK MEANS SHITTY LOUSY KRAP" in every thread? It kinda ruins the conversation.

I submitted by experiences to the web site. Basically I said that the car had been trouble free and a dream to drive. I wonder if they will publish that.

You know Mike, just because you are pissed off at your car is no reason to be an asshole to people in this forum. If that is the best you can do then you should take your comments elsewhere

Well stated, Pie. I hope that mikeallan gives everyone a break from the insults. From the few other things he's posted, he seems to know something about our cars that could be of help to someone in the future.

Amen, the person you insult very well might be the one who could have suggested a resolution to a problem. There are some very helpful people in this forum if you don't annoy them to the point they skip your posts out of principle.

Thanks to the web, there are lots of site like that.... consider this

One for every car made in the US, Europe, and the Far East. Lots of people have gotten screwed and the builders don't give a rats a$$. [xx(] There are also a lot of people out there that are looking to get something for nothing, and start these car bashing sites to work the manufacturers over. [:(!]
We know the SLK, and for that matter any car isn't perfect, so you take what you read, and try to pull the wheat from the chaff. There are a lot of whiners out there, and you have to take that into consideration as well. [;)]
Side note: [?][?]
This site (our site) is one of the most tolerant locations that I've seen on the web. Sometimes I wonder why we put up with some of the crap that gets posted here (and I'm not referring specifically to mikeallen's posts, or anybody else's, if I were, I'd have to include a bunch of my own). I have to wonder though, when is enough, enough? At what point do WE say "back off or lose the privilege of posting here" at least for a while, and should we even consider that? Some sites will ban a person at the drop of a hat, and I certainly wouldn't propose or consider that. What do you guys think..... ?

You are right !! There's no reason to be an asshole to people in this forum JUST BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO MODS THERE CAR !!! Maybe you should re-think about your comments !!! I would expect better comment at your age, my friend.

http:/Just think its funny someone would take a nice expensive car and crap it up with a bunch of "look how big my dick is" mods. Just MHO. /

Sorry, but you have no free speech rights here. All of us are allowed to post here at the discretion of the (very tolerant) moderators of the R170 forum and owners of Benzworld. I think you'd find yourself welcomed by the community here if you were to post in a civil and constructive manner.

Instead, you seem hell-bent on being disruptive and for some inexplicable reason appearantly can't afford a working caps lock key. This being cyberspace, all that any of us who have been enjoying this site for years can do is politely ask you to change your behavior. I hope you have a change of heart and cease being immature and annoying. If you can't do that, then I hope the mods feel you've crossed the line soon so you don't drive away people who find the forum useful.

Here is the Member Conduct section of the Terms of Use you agreed to when you signed up for the boards:

-- Member Conduct

In addition, we do not tolerate harassment, or denigration based on age, gender, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or disability. If you wish to take issue with the statements of other members or staff, please engage in healthy, mature debate and not immature behavior or name-calling. Civility and respect underlie the success of an on-line community such as BenzWorld.org. While we want to maintain an inviting environment for all members, disruptive conduct,
such as off-topic comments in a topic-oriented discussion, is not allowed.

This site should be a place where a person with a problem should be able to come and find out "what's going on" with their model of MB. If they have a problem, they should describe it articulately and in detail, so that someone who has had the problem before, and hopefully found the solution, can make helpful suggestions, and leave them here for others to find using the Search function. It helps to explain the process of trying to involve the MB zone reps and how to go about it. It also helps others to find out which dealers are slow to do repairs, don't stock parts, or charge excesssively for repairs. There are also some really useful how to "do it yourself" articles here, including pictures, which help second-hand owners who are either car nuts or who need to save some money on maintenance to be able to afford these cars. People who post this stuff are the real "gems" of this web site and the bulk of the available bandwidth needs to support this kind of information.

When a poster starts with repeated "this car sucks" blah blah and begins an singlehanded unrelentless campaign to convince everyone that their chosen car is lousy and they are fools to own it, *I* think that is where their useful bandwidth ends. At that point they need to be politely encouraged to move their soapbox to one of the "sad story" web sites such as the one Mike Allen referenced in his earlier post. They are no longer seeking help from, or contributing useful information to this enthusiasts group, just chumming the waters with SPAM to "get even" with a company that never reads this forum and could care less how loudly they complain here or how unpleasant they make it for other forum readers.

Most of the stuff posted here is fun, useful, and positive; lets try to act like adults and keep it that way; if we want to hear how bad MBs are, we can always go to a BMW web site[:I]. My 0.02 cents, and I ain't da judge who decides the policy.

Sorry Mike, free speech doesn't apply to a private web site ....

Free speech applies to what you can or cannot say about the government. At least that's what the American Constitution states. In any event try and yell FIRE in a movie theater and tell the "Bobbies" about your "free Speech" rights, see if that helps when they come for you....[:D]
The fact of the matter is that there are folks at many web sites that are just plain disruptive, and do not wish to be helpful in any way. They are the ones that are yelling "FIRE", and should be advised that what they are doing is NOT what the rest of the folks are here for. [;)]
As I said before, my comments were NOT directed at you, believe it or not, but frankly they do bring to a head some of the things that have been going on here.
We have lost a lot of good contributors, and no question a lot of potential good contributors due to the actions of some few people that have a tendency to start flame wars with their comments. Personally I may very well have added to that, and I have (occasionally) apologized for it. [B)] I think there should be some guidelines, and when someone oversteps reasonable conduct as spelled out in these guidelines, they should be sanctioned. [B)]

Linh, as you can clearly go back and read... you will see that I have NEVER directly insulted anyone. All I did was express my opinion of why some people have to crap up their cars with mods. Its my opinion, I dont like them and just because you do does not mean I am directing any kind of insults at you.

So...thats the end of this.
