Hey guys. Moped Army Question

Postby mopedmaynard » Tue Oct 16, 2012 11:27 am

Why is it that a lot of the Moped Army members are banned from this site? Some can no longer log in, and others have had their emails banned before they could ever register.
I love mopeds... uh... Yeah, thats about it.

There is no conspiracy here. I had to do a blanket block on entire email domains because the spambots have been nuts. Even with blocking gmail addresses, I still get hundreds a day. It's a burden.

so you block all of moped army?

anyone who is already a member of mopedarmy doesnt really pose a threat. its the new spam accounts that do, and those will still apply here.


i think oyu just dont like us.

I think he's saying it has nothing to do with ones association with mopedarmy. People were probably banned who haven't logged in within the past month and who have gmail addresses.

I'm not aware of any mopedarmy email addresses. I did have to block gmail and a few others from registering, but if someone already registered, they're fine.

Maybe this association didn't want crossover of the bashing of eachother, the cussing, and the smart alec talk that goes on over there.
I know they only talk that way to eachother out of extreme effection.

As a matter of fact, I believe the founders of this group fled Moped Army because they were tired of the infantile nonsense that went on over there. But there was never any intent to exclude MA members from joining MRA as well.

They just wanted a forum where they could moderate the nonsense. But everyone was welcome to participate, and still is.

I am a member of both MRA and MA. They are different. I post differently on both although I am not nor will I be one of the more disrespectful or hateful members of MA and I will probably be a bit too rough around the edges for the majority of MRA members. I think it's a matter of how you handle yourself. I see a lot of people that are regulars on Moped Army posting here, so obviously there isn't a blanket ban, but maybe there are some that have acted inappropriately and they have been excluded. Who knows?
I mostly come on to MRA and MA to read about issues regarding 2 strokes when I need answers and manuals. I sometimes share info (especially when there is a cross over to motorcycles which I have a lot of experience with) but I am finding that there is enough of a difference between mopeds and motorcycles to make me feel clueless on a few things. I have found help on both sites, but it gets a bit rough and usually childish on MA, but it is more active and even with all of the insults and rude behavior, I get those answers quicker.
