    WTF, It's just a forum!

    Not a rant and no names need be said.
    I get a PM from a member who had posted some very good advice for me. His quote was "No need to thank me" along with some other BS I had no need to hear.
    The fact is his advice was nothing I had not already heard or done so it pretty much fell on deaf ears and I just moved on but he was pissed I did not thank him.
    I PM'd him back explaining that I do appreciate his concerns and have already been there and done that so I just moved on. Then I get the blistering PM telling me how I am some kind of insufferable
    P%#$K and all of my posts are nothing but negative and nasty. He does have a small point there and I sure will speak my mind particularly when a member posts BS that won't fly or is just wrong. YUP!
    I sure have gotten into it with a few here but it is still just a web based forum and shit happens and I stand my ground and have it posted in my signature. "If I agreed with you we would both be wrong"!
    I had to remind this member to check my profile with well over 11,000 likes over all the years I have been here. I am really not all that hard to get along with but I call fouls when ever I see them. I remember they new member
    who on his third post wanted to hook up a nitrous system on his TW to get more power. I probably did baste his ass like a Thanksgiving Turkey but it was one of the dumbest ideas I had ever heard here.
    Once again, this is just a forum and there will always be differing opinions among us but the place to discuss, I did say "Discuss" our different opinions is right here in the threads for all to see and not a venue to blast anyone via the PM function.
    I don't appreciate having to tell any member here to go pound salt and leave me the hell alone. We all have the right to click right out if you don't care to stand up and discuss your points.

    Most of those squirrels are kicked out of the back of TopPreds rear tire.. One even hit me down in Green Ridge..

    Thanks Gulfrider. My personal doctor is a friend and tells me all the time to quit smoking. After contaminating my body for over 50 years I just ask, Will it help or reverse the damage already done? We all know the answer so just blast right up to those pearly gates all used up, torn and tattered and let the undertaker wipe that shit eating grin off your face. Doesn't it just figure, my post was moved by JJ and I was just there yesterday fetching my new, old BW 350 and took my life in my hands driving through that maze.
