    28 posts in 4 years, is not being here for the community. There are a lot of awesome things about this forum that I wasn’t expecting when joining. It’s much more than just trucks, and trying to make a buck on selling spare parts.

    @Green Thunder Please do, if that means someone does their “job” and explains why my posts were deleted and/or modified the Buy/Sell/Trade rules to reflect the 50 posts must meet a certain criteria. Bust a gut. “
    Just a thought, instead of stealth watching a fluff poster and then nuking their stuff and running them off, why aren't they engaged and told that isn't how it works? Some might actually have some good insight or be otherwise decent members, but by not making it known that their actions are seen and go against the rules, they might be run off. Now, sure, there are spammy fluff posters who we don't want around, but I would think that they would just disappear when contacted about the situation. Easier for the mods, and it might prompt somebody to engage with the community.” What an idea.

    @20GR8 Super Never claimed to “be here for the community,” again you’re assuming “I’m trying to make a buck selling spare parts.”

    Why do I have to explain the forum rules to you? I’m not a moderator.

    Since you have a mod’s user name, why not have a private dialogue with them?

    Why come to this thread and expect to have your hand held?

    Why come to this thread and not read all our comments, some of which discussed the questions you raised?

    Just a thought…

    And since maybe things need to be made clear, I bet the Mods will not accept you trolling this tread just to get your posts up to 50.

    And the post was not about you. It was an example answering your question about why the active members of the community care.

    So, here's this. One of the guys who's regular on this thread was telling the rest of us to do just what you're asking. @GODZILLA warned us to back up and wait a tick, maybe welcome the guy in. But the members and mods have seen so many folks dip in, sell something, and dip out, that it seemed almost silly. It can't be the truth because nobody who fluffs their posts in order to go sell something does that. And, dude, you were fluffing your posts no matter how much you deny, or no matter how long you've been here. So let's all back up, then. Whatever you were selling can stay stacked under your stairs or in your garage a while longer, and you can dig around in here and find cool folks. Some cool folks have been making fun of you; and IMO, since the thin skin you were showing seems to have the potential to grow a little thicker if you got acquainted in here, they'll likely come around if you let them. Sell your stuff in September or next year; but have a virtual beer and chill out with us a while. That's all anyone here wants. I hope it happens.

    DONE! Post count should now be re-calculated. Thanks for being a contributing member of the Tundra community :boink::fistbump::D

    LOL get out of here with this. I hAvE bEeN a MeMbEr FoR a LoNg TiMe. Great, and now you're suddenly posting to hit 50. You hit 50, and post something for sale; let alone it wasn't even a cool item. It was a basic bitch FS item.
    You sign on an average of three times a month, and your posts from March are all in marketplace purchasing an item, some in Feb regarding a vote of wheels, and then in July of 2018 when you needed help.

    Let's just all admit a little fault and move on.

    No question about it, you fluffed.

    Yes, we got off on your posts being deleted. (I did finish though, so it was good for me.)

    See ya around! :cheers:

    And now back to the regularly scheduled program

    @LarryDangerfield did you ever consider a 4Runner? I can’t remember if we talked that path. It’s basically a Tacoma and Subaru love child. Plus, I didn’t see a 4R in the list of rigs you have owned….

    I would be all over a 4runner except for the fact that they are super expensive for how outdated they are and the gas mileage is terrible.

    Tacoma and 4R have similar gas mileage, imo. Especially when neither one will remain stock.

    And here I am adding heavier tires, huge steel skid plates, a metal tonneau; and driving around with lead soled shoes making fun of people for trying to save gas... With a little tear squirting out as I remember I'm going to have to fill her up before Saturday.

    Welcome to the group. It's not actually a source of joy to see post counts knocked down, but it gets discussed because people who don't participate until they have something to sell do happen. Some people are here for the minimum 30 days, then spam a bunch to hit 50 posts, and then pop up items to sell. Others joined and lurked without engaging much over the years, and then they pump up the post count to sell an item.

    Now, motives can be murky. Maybe they just figured they'd offer a deal to fellow Tundra owners. Who knows? The thing is the way the post count is reached/the content of the posts matters, and is all the mods have to go on.

    Honest question: were you actually interested in all of the items in the marketplace where you asked "Best Price?" or were you just trying to hit 50 posts?

    If you want to prove the mods wrong, stick around and engage some folks. Trust me, nothing would make all of us happier than to have another active member. There have been plenty of people who lurked, and said as much when they realized they had something to sell. They said it, decided to engage the community and be a part of it, and happened to go way over the required post count because they found out its a fun place to hang out. Try it out. Set the floor mats aside for a minute, and talk to some people for a while.
