Dear 1200 Community:

Unfortunately it was brought to my attention recent incidents and members disputes around personal views and opinions and cases where personal attacks where seen. This has caused members to no longer feel this is a place to be, and requested to be removed or just be away.

I many occasions this is not a heavy moderated place and it had happened before but not to this extent. It might related to the the unseen difficult times the world is facing and its normal to expect high level of stress and anxiety that change your reactive patterns.

Still its not permitted and unacceptable to conduct personal attacks so I relist the rules you all agreed when joining this community:
"
While the administrators and moderators of this site will attempt to remove
or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is
impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts
made to this site express the views and opinions of the author and not the
administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people)
and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful,
threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any
applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently
banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all
posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. Creating multiple
accounts for a single user is not allowed. You agree that the webmaster,
administrator and moderators of this site have the right to remove, edit,
move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree
to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While
this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your
consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held
responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being
compromised.

This site system uses cookies to store information on your local computer.
These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above,
they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The email address is used
only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending
new passwords should you forget your current one).

By clicking Register below you agree to be bound by these conditions."

I will be reviewing the content and latest posts and conduct a heavy moderation period to remove this incidents, and action to members that are breaking forum rules or think there are no reactions to bad conduct.

We created this community to share knowledge about this great piece of automotive history. A car that shaped my automotive DNA and may others here, it made me the Petrol head that I am today.
Lets keep this place, the GotoLocation you want move away of all the news media the stress of the current pandemonia or the place to re energize yourself to get your job back.

I ask to all members to obey forum rules, apply netiquette common sense, dont feed the trolls, be respectful to each other and discuss topics that are interesting to the community.

Thank you.

Pedro Branco

That includes sticking to your interested thread
if not, dont troll, mock others and their views
or the same thing will occur again.

Not it will not.

Members that conducted personal attacks have 2 strikes one more and you are out after this announcement.

Let me be to the point
When I say Interesting Topicts to this Datsun community. Its is does not include 5g, id2020, facebook. Goverment. Continuing to write about these, is a disrespect to this request.

My patience is over on this. Any sign of provocation will result an immediate Ban.

Thanks.

Ive come from a past world full of Oppressive legislation and made it my life
to make sure those more fortunate perhaps learn the other side of the world
we dont see or told is different by commercial propaganda. Sorry to have this
personal need to express this so extensively but I have my reasons and none
are commercial or fruitful for my online image vs the mainstream.

Therefore my understanding and that of some others is/can be different
but at the same time I dont expect mockery or censorship unless as stated
by you the owner of this site which I often enjoyed for almost 2 decades.

However, I honestly dont understand as it is commonly understood even by
by long time users of forums that avoid social media that OFF TOPIC
means the allowance of communication of everything that is not
datsun related or what the website advertises. That is what this site said.

Every other car forum as well I belong to and invested great time on has
the same meaning for "off topic" and even here state we can discuss
all topics non datsun related etc.

eg off topics is where communities discuss things to educate and even
discuss the Governors of mentalities different agendas without fear
of mocking bullying and trolling therefore If we are not supposed to
discuss anything outside datsun... I and some others have been misled.

A week ago I have been given many requests to have photos from other
sites removed by their moderators/owners as I was not honestly aware of
their policies at that time that would cause so many issues now.
New digital copyright laws as you know have been sometime coming.

I give you credit for deleting posts in a fair and equal manner and ask
for an official request to delete my photo Album in its entirety as well
as their titles as I dont want to have my photos or that of others due to
my concerns for my digital identity and copyright laws that are now being
enforced.
This is something no one expected to be enforced in the days
when I was relatively new to the net and its constantly changing rules.

Communication is not that clear from all parties but I see you are saying its
not ok to be mocked/trolled and I am just as guilty to counter this behavior
and instead ignore it or make requests to you to have their mocking removed.

That is what is understood now even though one of the members has provoked me
and many members threads with countless homosexual comments/innuendos trolling.
A behavior that was intolerable by many but nothing was done about it because
most could not be bothered trying to contact you and waste your time or just
not interested in being petty and just ignored this site due to this person.

This time in history as most would agree is a bit unsettling and I do not want
to argue with anyone for fun. It is clear even though myself not included most
are under lockdown and not happy at all. I have friends and family also in this
situation and it is frustrating to see my nephews schools with anything up to
a hundred handymen and electricians in their schools installing the 5g network
all doing so with no masks or distance limits while their kids are told to stay
home. Also my sister a head nurse has been told to stay home after complaining
of no one wearing masks in her floor or why there are no patients there when
the media at the same time her hospital was inundated with sufferers.

You have to understand this is enough to make anyone very upset.

Thank you for what you have offered in these years before all this
happened. sincerely, D.

I will post offtopic guidelines to clear this misunderstanding.

Even members requested for the Offtopic section to be removed I believe it should exist as any car forum.

The problem in ours is, the recent messages is a custom mod made by us 18 years ago, and it shows all topics. we should be able to remove all offtopics from recent ms so sensitive off topic members are not affected by it. As we all know, the recent message is a very efficient way to track whats happening. But if is full of offtopics, then you loose this ability.

The subject of the off topic and especially in present times now, and the anxiety of all, the content should be interesting to the community. My point was, It should make you happy, Personally Government talk, does not make me happy and many others reported the same. This relates to personal views what is interesting, so this definition is vague. What is interesting? I will try to define that in the Offtopic Guide Lines soon.

The offtopic, If members feel the topic in not interesting, they can say it without any fear being smashed, or offended,neither the poster can be offended by posting the topic. If no one replies you should not continue to post consecutive messages about it to bump it up.

A Public forum is not the place to talk about private concerns, if you wish changes in you account and published data address that on a pm.

Thanks
Pedro

It is difficult to make anyone happy when most of the populous
is locked down under Draconian laws that dont apply to the ones
running around in groups of 20 and more in close contact installing
the next system that will be the IOT against the will of the people.

I would love to say the most positive thing and make people laugh
in these hard times for my fellow men. However I will make this my
challenge even though I will be now limited in how its done.

For example this video made my parents and friends very happy
as it supports people in general that feel so negative about the
current circumstances which are obviously a crime on citizens.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EWQPgF6-UQ

If someoneone doesnt like it, it is a shame as this Doctor
for the NY ICU is sacrificing his career and he only cares
for the human race nothing else. eg. what is your opinion?

Mr Branco the media does not show the people who have been
looking after people for decades like my sister who is now
trapped in a small Milan apartment when all she wanted to do
was follow the procedure as was taught to her professionally.

Some of us here are professionals in many different fields
and some of us arent but together more can be achieved.
It is not the best time to be patient I understand but at
the same time it is what we can achieve together with views
that are not suppressed in a short time that could also bring
the best in us all if we care to share for the long run.

Off topic wont rule this site and never will but atm some need
to show what is happening and the truth can be stranger than
the usual fiction we are usually inundated with.

i will send you a pm as you suggested and thank you again for
clarifying what you the owner wants regardless of what some
of us think is right or wrong as after all it is your site.
