You have to admit they look cool.

At least as cool as a tachometer in a car with an automatic transmission.

I have the right to remain silent.  By posting here I have given up that right and accept that anything I say can and will be used as evidence to critique me.

DO NOT FEED THIS TROLL.

 

Maybe we should all send personal messages to Steven Otte to bring this guy to his attention.

Please don't. As I like to say, "People have a right to be wrong." It's not my job to vet every post for usefulness and accuracy. Ignore him if you can, correct him if you like, argue with him if you must, but calling another user a "troll" or the like counts as a personal attack. So if anyone gets punished from this thread, it will be the ones calling for admin action against a user who has not actually broken any rules.

Punish me if you will. Based on past experiences, I stand by my statement.

Personally, I've never cared for the word "troll" as it is often used on forums.  I think "muckraker" is a much more appropriate moniker. 

I'ved been involved with this forum for going on 14 years.  It never ceases to amaze me how a new members first post(s) are complaints, or "versus", or trying to bully their beliefs and preferences to others.  

Many of the other forums I belong to (i.e. F150, Smith-Wesson, Ford, APS, etc.) put newbies on a probation period wherein their posts are seriously reviewed to assue the "applicant" is sincere and not looking to "rake muck"..........

 

ENJOY  !

 They do here as well - that's why you see posts suddenly appear BELOW oens you already read, and you know it wasn't there the day before. That's a newbie posting with moderated status and one of the mods releasing the post.

 See this person's first thread - first couple of posts (to get past the moderation period) were fairly reasonable. Only after he could post freely did it really go off the rails (no offense to Gerry Leone, his antics are MUCH more enjoyable, plus you actually learn a thing or two).
