It feels like it is filled with a bunch of weirdo individual more than enough now. There is a limit to take everything personnal, especialy on a discussion board...

I survived deliberate personnal attacks from very unpolite persons.

I am now filled with very mixed feelings...

I even been asked to not reply to someone specific threads...now what, whats next...we will need to add a "pms not friendly" thread button next to the thread ???

a filter to not let some be able to reply to some threads ??

This is not serious at all, if theses persons could appologize,that would be a minimum imho.

you try to help someone, and he pees on you...wtf...

I think i lost enough time with that board...

It has been my personal experience too with yet another forum that my posts get hyper criticized as if I have insulted someone personally by expressing an opinion or just having a playful sarcastic banter.

Pat; all I can say is not to take it personally. Most of the negative replies are generally coming from folks who probably have/had very enabling parents. Their source of angst stems from a likeliness that they still look to an authority figure to blame for their inequities.

The views expressed are my opinions meant for amusement purposes only and are a direct result of the internet providing me a voice where as I would otherwise have none.

Pat I have had a few of those myself. And as thick skinned as I am it can just get hurtful and unnecessary. just remember for every ass like that there are plenty of us that are not that way. I have taken more than my share of hits from people on this board when I was more of a newbee asking basic questions. But it is not from the good folks here, just usually the ones with no profile, no email and most likely no 02 either

Dear PatAllen,

An open letter to you and the others on this board. We all have opinions that we must share in order to make the infomation exchange as helpful as possible. While our contributions make us vulnerable to criticism it also makes this board a central space that we can share our collective knowledge. It would be my opinion that you are a valued contributor to this site and your continued interaction is both needed and wanted.

While I read the post that I think you are refering to in your post, I also know that many of us (myself included) are passionate about our cars and the knowledge we think we have. Toby is engaged in a discussion about heat and stresses in engines, Harry is discussing selling his Schwarz '02, hundreds of conversations are ongoing and we have the privilege to participate in whatever discussion we choose.

So my point is this, I appreciate your's and everyone's opinion, and while I may not always agree with what is written here there are always pieces of information that I find interesting, challenging, informative, and even wrong.

Thank you and evryone else here for you thoughts and knowledge,

Todd

Sounds like we really do need the "sarcasm font" to be invented. So people know you're being sarcastic.

Where I work we've just started to put "sf" in our emails denoting that it should be read as if it was in sarcasm font.

Scott

ooh me likey the font for sarcasim.

Oops, did that sound sarcastic?

Maybe that too was sarcastic?

Hence the downward spiral.

Forget it.

+1 on the "SF"

I trust none of Y'All take any offense in my posts.
