JET, the censorship you are speaking of is likely the W02 thread, as it is the most polluted of all the car threads. Once there is a whole page off topic, with nobody trying to steer it back to the straight and narrow, don't expect those posts to be treated like they have some importance. I've been guilty of it myself as well on occasion.
