Rennlist Refugees

I have just come over here from the rennlist board. It seems as though they are making major changes to be more politically correct. Aparently many of the left wing weenies were getting their feelings hurt. Any other rennlist refugees out here?

Right, but the General Q & A section is now at risk of being the new O.T. section (just read the topics). Seems like there is still a demand for personal expression beyond P-cars.

I actually registered their first and then I saw all the fun happening over here so I joined a few months later. Right in time for the New Years Day Run in So Cal.

What we really need is a big wall, a barrier, to separate us from the refugees of a fallen land.

Of course, if we built a wall, and it worked, the UN would probably just tell us to tear it down. (sigh)

I came over from Rlist...I like the people here better. I actually get answers to my questions from people who "work" on their cars. Not to slam rennlist but I have not gotten any help form the tech area.

For sure, folks here have a lot more, uh, 'personality' than over on Rennlist. The 993 crowd is definitely older, more refined, less greasy. Unfortunately, they've developed a clique called HWFMR. People are falling all over themselves to be a member. Personally, I'm not a 'joiner' and the whole thing is rather irritating. I'm feeling ostracized by not thinking of some lame-a$$ title to join with, like "Official ******* Patrol Director" or "Official 993 Biker From Hell" or something along those lines.

Plus, not really any tit$ and a$$ happening over there.

That being said, they are a great group of people and there is plenty of helping and fellowship goin' on.

I guess some way of belonging to a bad-a$$ Porsche racing group without actually being a racer. I dunno, maybe some of them are actually racers. But let's not forget the demographic of your average '98 993 C2S Arena Red with 20k miles on the clock and $3000 wheels owner.
