@Jordan I used to have a green pickup truck and a pitbull. She rode with one of her legs draped over the window sill and the result was a big semicircular paint scratch on the passenger door.
She was a good girl.
@Britishvillaininatl I didn't read your whole post, but I don't think it will leave much of a lasting impact on the overall car world. It was hailed as the most beautiful car made for about 45 minutes, then people eyeballed the pricetag, correctly anticipated the build quality issues that were sure to come up, realized the tech was outdated and then decided to buy the better (in every metric but looks) Porsche. It's not a car that is helped by having so many different iterations of drive train in the early days either. They should have picked a motor and stuck with it instead of offering the 4, 6 and 8.
I should add I own an F-Type.
Just so we're all clear, this is not what happened. I did not comment on Svend's post as I did not see Svend's post. He also did not see the comments I did make which is clear by his comment in Liam's thread where he asked CoFL what the comment was and asked CoFL to DM him the comments. So the narrative where I continued to make comments to Svend in his post about how he was upset by the death of the queen are false. Full stop.
I did make a comment on a post by @liam. The comment I made was in poor taste and was based on my opinion of the person in question. I still hold that opinion. The comment was removed and I was suspended for an hour. That was the extent of it. That's all that happened and it has nothing to do with why I don't want to be here.
My not wanting to be a part of this place has very little to do with that day, that comment or anything other singular event. I don't feel a net positive from my time here. That's just my personal feeling. It has nothing to do with politics or anything else. I just don't care to be on the site anymore. I tried to leave on a non-negative note.
Sorry for having stirred up shit. I'm more sorry to have to log back in to stop some of you from pretending you know what you're talking about while trying to paint me in an untrue light. I'm sorry if I offended Svend, certainly wasn't a personal attack on him as I never directly interacted with him in his post. Move on.
@facw I've never really looked at it like this, but you're right. I lock my $1000 bike outside my job and then find myself checking on it 10 times a day. I'd have a heart attack with a motorcycle.
@WBizarre I did the Watkins Glen walk last year along with a bunch of other waterfalls in the area. Can't wait to get back.
I just went to West Virginia for a long weekend. Better driving roads than New York, cheaper accomodations and the views are incredible.
@Throwaway Eh, you are just a dick, no explanation needed. About to block you anyway as you’re too toxic for my taste. Peace.
Even funnier is that @HFV, the guy who started the thread and then complained about name calling after I said people were "sensitive" has upvoted this comment by you calling me a dick.
@MUSASHI66 It's funny. I'm sure I'll be spoken to by a curator for violating some rule, but you'll be able to trundle blithely on violating whatever site rules you deem fit.
This far I have made a hyperbolic statement regarding the end of civilization, which one would think would be recognized as such since we're discussing wrist watches, admitted to my hypocrisy as regards other material things (clothes, cars etc), and expressed and opinion regarding a brand of watches.
For those statements I'm now both a dick and communist.
And that's this site in a nutshell and I appreciate you making that point so easy to illustrate.
@DucST3 I'm two things:
1). Not your guy
2). Not even a little upset.
@DucST3 Who's upset? And now you're calling me names? The op is against that, remember?
@MUSASHI66 Yeah, it's called hypocrisy and discussion and an exchange of ideas.
I don't like watches. I do like other shit that just as pointless, so on some level I get it. I am a hypocrite and I admitted it. I didn't realize that was not an opinion I should share? Then I remembered that generally speaking, this site likes to act as an echo chamber of whatever the OP posts. Once you disagree you are a dick. After the group decides you are dick, then it's cool to call people names, and hell the OP, who was lamenting the name calling, may even join in.
Christ, people in this thread are so sensitive that when I mentioned they were sensitive I was accused of calling people names.
In short, I appreciate your input. I don't remember or particularly care what you said, but I appreciate it just the same.
@HFV Sure didn't turn out that way did it? The internet is a crazy place with all these people and their opinions just running wild.
