Re: [DML] New Internet Based Forum

I was responding to James' message. We are now going in DML circles.

Re: copyright -- I put a message at the very top of the frontpage to make it clear the new site is not affiliated in any way with Houston. I felt that was appropriate, given its name similarity with DMCMidwest et al. I also used a public domain TTF font to create the site logo. It's very similar to the grill logo, but side by side comparison would surely reveal some sort of difference (probably just a pixel...).

BTW: This is where I got the font:
It's a complete character set (upper and lower case), so anyone who is truly DeLorean bonkers could have some fun with it.

We all know, I have been guilty of this too over the years (DMC Trademarks anyone?!)  But I have tried my best to at least let a few months go by before repeating the same information again.
> What goes on at DMCTalk has frustrated me too.  I alerted Tamir to my concerns, and as owner of the site-  he is free to address them as he sees fit...  and, I am free to not participate in that forum.  It is a loss for all of us that there is no single free (in the sense of uncensored, and unmolested) forum for owners to communicate.  With that said, you have a knack for pissing people off-  I feel it is your intent, so having the moderators on any forum specifically approve your posts may be a good thing in your case, with maybe an "uncensored area" where you (or anyone) can post whatever you want unmoderated, and people who want the filter don't have to read that.  There is NEVER an excuse for moderators editing posts.
> As bad as social media is (FaceBook, Google+), maybe that will work better for your Bill?  Nice thing about those forums is you control everything that follows your name.  Why not try using one of those?  People who are interested in what you have to say can subscribe to your feed, and interact with you on your own page/terms.  If you piss them off, they can stop reading your stuff.  You can also control who can see your posts, it is very flexible.
