    So I set the forum to not allow new registrations to just start posting - they have to be approved by me

    In the registration, I added a mandatory question: ARE YOU A SPAMMER? ____

    I don't know if these are actual humans, or bots, but none of them write "No" like a normal human would. I also ask for current vehicle. Last registration wrote they drive a "Qiana"....APPROVED!

    so basically nobody real is signing up for the site, which is fine...
    this is a test of the sig

    That sucks, I've been spreading the word about blazinlow for years. I wish more real people would sign up. You know there is a capcha that you have to watch a little video and then it tells you to enter words or a phrase. Might be worth looking into. I'm just glad you have shut it down yet.

    the facebook thing will work in a pinch. Just lots of people who here with lots of good info. losing the site will suck, but losing all the good people is a little worse.

    Very true. It's not easy to find good people these days no matter where you are.

    This. Crazy to think that I joined this site when I was 19 (I'm 32 now).

    I've long since sold my blazers (went through 5 over the years and had a ton of fun with them), but I still pop in every few months or so just for old time's sake. I actually even check Craigslist every once in a while for shits and giggles to see if there's any cheap project trucks floating around, but 1st gens are almost non-existent around here now, along with the mini trucking scene too. Seems like even lowered full size trucks are getting fewer and far between too.

    I think I'm in the same boat as everyone, I totally understand why it's not feasible to keep the site going now, but it would be a sad day to see it go.
