Default I'm going to quit going there

So I pop over to m.net yesterday. Someone posted in the automatics section that they need a radiator and wanted to know if the autos are different. Obviously they are and he was told so. I can't imagine there are tons of auto rads lying around. So I comment stricly that I have one and to PM me for details. Bang! Deleted. I mean come on, I can't imagine that a guy can find one easily other than new and I try to help out. I did PM him now, but he had just a couple of posts and didn't know if he would know to get his PM. Oh, well.

If people here didn't link to m.net so much I would never see their forums. That forum drags the whole Miata community down. I feel sorry for the people who go there looking for help and don't know any better.

IMO it's a much more conservative place, but it still has lots of tech stuff which can't be found elsewhere ...

Agreed, they are pretty picky on the whole classifieds thing. This is the only forum with a decent classifieds section. CR doesn't allow responses

The garage is nice. The forum is not.

He was just trying to help someone out but the mods won't let him. They were a new member looking for an unusual part, maybe he needed some help. I just don't understand the logic behind it.
