I’ll stick by my opening post then eh ? Grin Grin


You've had quite a few cars in the last 3 years, why so many?



Indeed Ive changed a few times. Simple answer though is that I like cars.

Rather than "why so many?" I would ask "why not?" Thumb


Observation:

It would seem to me that after your somewhat derogatory original post ... .....forum members have attempted to look past it and engage you in polite banter designed to involve you and perhaps get you to reciprocate in the normal forum ‘chat’ .......
You , however after your ignominious start are being very defensive and not very forthcoming ....
Might I suggest to be a bit more open , and enjoy the banter , Enter into the spirit of it , you will enjoy this forum more than most out there .
....If you enjoy forum craic of course ...

Agreed, It does seem Scott's few posts have an underlying aggressivness in their tone. I would agree, Scott lighten up and consider how it has transfered from your head to type . and as said stop being defensive and engage . or we wont share our toys with you Floor Floor Floor

1432 views of a nonsense thread in 4 days goes far enough in confirming that the forum is very much alive.

However - time to kill this one now I think. Wink
