I noticed on the MCCH site that there is a thread talking about the upcoming castings. This info is based on info posted from here but what really kills me is all the pictures were taken off of this site AND these pictures were taken at Fest which that site refuses to even acknowledge. Most of us can't even post a word there and heaven forbid someone use a pic originated there first and then placed here after the fact. Three NY lawyers, a law suit and many nasty e-mails usually follow. Why is it not a two way street? They make sure no pics come here so why is HT open season for them?

Don't get me wrong I'm in favor of info sharing. We have direct ties with Lightning Lane and Mini-Motors/HWC site and freely share with many others like Joe Falco's place and RLOL but when a party forbids us from ever using them as a source I wonder why they get away with it?

Others?

Yup, yup, yup, I see they are really fond of everybody's pictures from here. thank goodness we are not the type of low life scum that would replace our pictures with some porno pic, huh???? That was my first visit in several months.. haven't missed anything, this is still the place to be

Hmmm

I provided a short list of cars coming (initial thread)...but didn't specify what was in the newsletter. Just info that was posted here in general after the fest. I just wish Bobby and Mark got along instead of this BS. I am not blaming anyone, but these are some of the best boards going and it sucks that there is politics at work.

Rob,


I agree wholeheartedly that Hobbytalk is and will always be the place to go for JL related Diecast. I remember that porn issue and that was really lame of someone to do.

you know, its not even the pictures being posted.. its the fact that no post giving info about Fest was allowed over there, most of the people who handle Fest are banned from there and yet it is OK to post photos taken at Fest over there???/ seems a little crazy, if you all know what I mean..

My opinion, not worth the attention.

For the record, Mark C. and I were friends. I actually bought him lunch and showed him my collection one day. However, I can't call someone a friend who would would stoop so low as to be a part of a porn picture posting on a public forum. I'm sorry but I think it's best for me to stay away from this guy. Although I'm not welcome there, anyone here who wants to visit has my blessing.

BTW - Mark C. still visits here but incognito. I also doubt he likes the fact anything to do with Lightning Fest was posted on his site.

So, I hope you don't mind but I don't want to continue this topic.
