Note To All GT5 Participants
« on: Fri Mar, 1 @ 12:22 PM (pacific) »
Alex touched on this in 1 topic and I am going to be far more blunt about it.

There are 3 of us that have worked extremely hard over the years to keep LZ Racing alive.

I do not approve of some of the things going on with this side of the site. Far too much bickering and name calling.

Treat every member with respect on the forum and on the track. That is the foundation of LZ Racing.

If you have a disagreement, take it to the private messages.

Get this cleaned up and under control.

Consider this an official warning.

I've sent several PMs to those I felt I needed to. I also delete non-constructive posts, edited others.

Team Trans asked me to ban him. So I did.

Which member is the 'him' in this ban?

Team Trans is the one banned.

A ban includes all LZ Racing activities not just the forum.

No worries Mudd.

I think you guys have some good participation going on over there.

If someone asks to leave, that is their right. We did not ask anybody to leave. We expect members to treat all members with some sort of respect and be reasonable.

We are all here to have a good time and be friends.

That's all understood, but the fact that this new "banned" list bears a striking resemblance to my GT5 friends list kinda puts me in an uncomfortable position.  :-\

I think all this is just a misunderstanding. I also don't think I could be a part of lz without you mud :).

Well, I'm not saying I'm leaving just yet, but I'm not happy with how this has played out at all. I've always enjoyed the care-free fun atmosphere of the racing with LZR, but now suddenly I have check my friends list to see who is online and going to be offended when I choose to race with one group over another. That's not what I joined the group for, and I have to believe this could be settled some other way.  Pitting everyone against each other like this will accomplish nothing except the end of the GT5 side of LZR.

idk who would be offended. you race with whoever you want to. people keep asking to be banned..... idk whats goin on with everyone. i dont think trans really wanted to be banned from what he told me. i think he was just having a bad day. crazy i assume left because i told him to not cut track. i can post the video if anyone wants to see it. i know a few people saw it. i just wanted him to not cut the corners. then im told by fish crazy told him we didn't like him he was a dirty driver and we wanted him to leave so he did. i told him this wasn't true at all.


all i want to do is race lol. so if anyone has ideas on how to fix any problems let me know and i will do my best to resolve them. if you feel like things aren't being run correctly just PM me a message anytime ill respond asap.

Look folks, it would have been easy for these 3 to have stayed in the league by showing the admins and the league any respect. They didn't need to beg or grovel, they just didn't need to be asses. They choose a different route and I am not just talking about forum posts. There has been more than that including personal emails exchanged.

They showed their lack of character and judgment by asking to be banned and threat making. One of them brought real life into this as some kind of authority play. I didn't ask for personal stuff to be brought into this but it was put in my face so I looked into it and did not like what I found.

I don't see that there has been misunderstanding on my part.
