I was restless last night and I decided to go to EC Affiliate Mall to check out Amazon. To my dismay, I was redirected to a page that said the domain no longer is active. WTF? Long story short, I've tried to contact, Lycos Tripod for support. Their phones have been disconnected and all I could do was chat online and all I got was a runaround. This is not a money issue. My account and the domain is paid in full. Lycos simply screwed this over and is ignoring my requests for help. I contacted PayPal but they said for now the issue is between me and Lycos. Problem is Lycos basically deleted the website and won't tell me why.

There goes the DIYs, the Car and Member of the Month pages too. The Affiliate Mall is gone. At least the links here at the forum still give me credit if anyone buys through links here and in the hot deals forum.

I do have most of the code for the old site saved but the problem is that it was designed through Tripods editor and it is formatted only for Tripod. Everything would need to be recoded. A near impossible task. Over 6000 photos are gone though, many of which will make parts of this board have dead links as I used Tripod to host many photos.

The thing that really sucks is I have nowhere to turn. My host for the gtclub site turned into an incompetent piece of shit and I didn't know what was happening. 14 years of hard work down the drain.

At least our forum host has been very good unlike Tripod. Now, if this would have happened before March 6 2015 (the day my wife Tammy passed away) I would have gone mental on Tripod. Now, I'm so numb this hasn't hit me as hard as it would have. Even so this is so ridiculous. I've been paying for the services at Tripod for 14 years and didn't miss a payment yet someone deleted my domain. Pure bullshit.

The only thing "hardcore" about a Civic is fuel economy!

This car is perfect for the late teen, early 20 something who wants to be 2 fast and 2 furious on a budget. You'll look the part, you just won't be fast but you will sound like you are!"
