Since the various poorly-written and contradictory statements by "EVDRIVER" pasted at the bottom of this comment are literally unintelligible, I'll merely sum up my impression of their intended meaning.
I believe I have been subjected not to a warning, but to this threat, "... the site admin will remove your access..."
And since no actual violation of any term of service or standards of behavior are alleged, I will simply conclude from when and where "EVDRIVER"'s abusive actions were taken, that the discussion of TSLA's vehicle safety record in general, and TSLA's record of very high driver death rates, when compared to the much safer records of either other large expensive vehicles, or to other BEVs and PHEVs like the Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt, is now forbidden on this forum.
If I have misinterpreted "EVDRIVER"'s comments, I'll expect a specific and clear statement of correction from Site Administration.
Until that occurs, I will not resume my regular comments on this forum.
I don't see that I have any alternative, since complying with MNL's demand that I withhold comment would require me (or any other member MNL) to lie by omission, on a subject that quite literally had deadly consequences, not only for the dozens of past fatalities in TSLA vehicle crashes, but also for the much larger number who will undoubtedly die in TSLA vehicle crashes in the future.
I expect I may be back on MNL at some time in the future, one way or another, as TSLA's efforts to suppress discussion of its safety record may well cease after the (nearly) inevitable financial reorganization.
I continue to drive my 2011 LEAF, which to date, after over 60k miles, and well into its eighth Hot Summer, retains nearly 80% of its initial battery capacity, and well-over-100-miles of optimum range. Sorry you will probably miss some updates, at least for a while.
Have a safe July fourth, remember to always drive safely, and don't let this happen to you, or your loved ones:
Re: Tesla's vehicle safety record
Ed, don't start unneeded threads specifically to start an agenda biased thread. You are getting out of hand with this stuff. This is a warning for you to take it back a notch. This thread is locked.

The moderators and site admin have been discussing your posting behavior for some time for a variety of reasons. There have been complaints from forum members because of your postings, some not returning as a result. It was suggested to remove your access to the site, I argued against this on your behalf some time ago and suggested an additional warning which has since past. There will be no further debate or discussion on this topic and any further complaints will result in your access to the site being removed. You are entitled to your opinion here but you have been excessively disruptive. There will be no further warnings past this point, the site admin will remove your access for a variety of reasons.EVDRIVER wrote:Ed remains an active member and this is not a matter of being negative on Tesla or someone being a fanboy or not. It is not a matter of opinions either. I’m confident that anyone warned on this site (which is very rare) knows what the issues are. As I have always said everyone is entitled to their opinions no matter how extreme. Ones’s opinion or difference of is not an issue.
