Being A Grown UP

Why can't members who post pictures of their cars or describe their vehicle able to take criticism...Why do you only want RAVES...and you are unable to take the criticism...You had better grow up. That's life. You get the GOOD with the BAD (of course that is ME).

Look what you have put Bogie through...he has to delete all hijacked material. The forum has become POLITICALLY CORRECT...this is Midnite Blues fault..perhaps.

there's this saying...if you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing at all.




that's what makes you a grown up, sir. not trying to bring people down, saying ludacris things, and expecting them to be "ok" with that. That makes you about 13 years old.

Maturity is not about how many years you have walked the earth. It's about how you present yourself to others, and how civil you can be with anyone and everyone around you. I have witnessed some of the rediculous things you have posted about other peopls cars, and it's no surprise to me that a few people are lashing out a little bit against you.

obviously you feel a little but hurt if you're posting this thread, otherwise you would have just "accepted it, with the good and the bad."


also, how many times has your car ever seen the track? those race car numbers make it look so fast! i bet those white wall tires really grip in the turns. I dont understand how you can keep a race car so shiny and flawless!


the chrome isnt muted by the black tires. it doesnt stand out because the stock wheel spokes are so thin. You can spot my Mercedes AMG wheels a mile away on my car...fat 5's.

MM (IMHO) from sitting back and watching this from the sidelines there is a big difference between constructive criticism or expressing an opinion and some of the out and out nasty stuff that comes out of people's fingers on the keyboard. It feels like some folks can't wait to see something new so they can be the first to rip the 'new' thing. I really believe that people who post pics and that kind of info (I am not one of them for obvious reasons) aren't looking for RAVES they are looking for feedback from their peers in a car club and hope to give others ideas or maybe even have others improve on theirs. The nastiness and the acid that flies is way out of line. I love my car and what I have done to it is my business. I made the changes because I saw it elsewhere or talked to someone whose opinion I respect. What anyone else on here thinks is worth less a rat's ass to me. I think everyone has to lighten up and get back to basics or there will be no more pics and the thread about what I did to my car will dry up - as will most of the rest of this forum. It scares people off when they see and read what happens when you open up - even a little bit...When I want advice I go the PM route with those I respect and leave the public out of it....

What Critter said: There is a significant difference between expressing an opinion and casting universal judgment.

"Mike, I don't care for the way you treat other people." is an opinion.

"Mike, you are an insensitive, fugly, jerkwad." is a universal judgment.

See how they feel different?

In my opinion, your behavior toward other people is affecting this forum in a negative way. New members, participation (i.e. posting), etc. are the lifeblood of a place like this and new folks, of late, have repeated stated how unwelcome they've felt. And like apples, one rotten member can ruin the forum for everyone. So chill out on rotten appling, or you're going to find yourself as the only fruit in a lonely barrel.

I'm a newbee and I can tell already that there are keyboard commandos here just like every other forum. Don't know MM but what usually happens is people stop taking you seriously. Just my .02.

I'd rather see another tire or oil thread than another one of these soap opera threads that have nothing to do with our cars. But whatever ... I'll just ignore this thread now that I know what it is about.

If you guys really think it is a number of posts thing, you're deluded. He's merely giving his honest opinion of your mod or situation. If you can't accept honest criticism, then don't post anything. Nobody is always going to agree with you... ever, so just roll with the punches and take it for what it's worth; someone's opinion. So if you guys don't like my Sky, BFD, screw you, but it's also your opinion, so I honor it, and it does give me pause to reconsider my Sky and/or the mod I did, it makes me think twice as to whether it is as bitchin as I think it is...
