|...and NEXT week on "WHY VWVORTEX SUCKS," maybe I'll devote an entire post to "people who completely miss the point of my post, and think I'm trying to play moderator, even though they have zero sense of humor, nor can they comprehend the idea of sarcasm!"|
That'll be a hit for sure.
i read this post and started laughing because i thought someone was making fun of you, then i looked at the poster and noticed it was you, i think the problem is theres no tone of voice or facial expressions in writing, no one can tell when your being sarcastic.
as far as calling people ignorant, ive done that, someone posted a pic of their car, some dick said thats rice, i asked what part is rice, he said it just is, i asked again, where?, he said its ricy, i said your ignorant and full of ****, and he imed me being all mad that i was being mean to him, and that hes allowed to have an oppinion, you know what i did, i closed the im window and never looked back.
one thing i largly disagree with is, this is a volkswagen web page, hence the name VW vortex, it pisses me off when people back up cars that are not vw, and dog on vw and whatever, on a vw forum, then call the people that back up vw closed minded. i try to drive any car i can, i want to know what the car feels like, and there are some that ive driven that i HATED, one being an integra, now ive driven german cars from a beater '85 GTi to a brand new M3, and i have loved all of them, the way i fit in the car i like, that integra just felt odd, i have driven some japanese cars that i like, but if i go in the car loung and say no i dont like integras for something so small as you sit too high and the steering wheel is too low, they will call me ignorant, even though that was the only reason i couldnt stand driving it.
and like someone said if you cant handle an internet forum i wait till you have to deal with real live people.
oh and one more thing, while you did make some valid points, it takes some real balls to name a thread why vortex sucks, but then you made a disclaimer saying oh but i really dont think it sucks, mabey you should try sticking to your guns.
