I don't understand something
April 17, 2015 06:13PM
Its not unique to this forum by any stretch but there seems to be a passion, among many on here, to invest time and effort in pointing out how wrong, or bad, or stupid, or misplaced some others are.

So, a question for those who feel compelled to call other people out... what do you get out of it?

Once you reach a decision that someone is trolling or is simply 'acting out,' as we see presently in the 'inverted' thread, doesn't it make more sense to stop wasting the effort on carrying on a pointless conversation?

Let me ask you: what do you suggest we do when we get some punk ass kid like that one, or the crazy guy from Flar0duh who write whole epic novels of how wicked his Mitsubishi Micro-van will be---better than the Gaylant he had?

We ask for their name, we ask they write in some form of English that includes periods, commas and paragraphs, and they get insane..

What would you suggest?

I know there are plenty of sites for what we could call "total wankers" to have their wank-fests on, THIS site was not concieved to be a wank-fest host site....ANYBODY can sign up, but what do we do if there's what is clearly a punk ass twerp going on and on and on?

How have YOU helped?

Cause I don't know...
This site was conceived as a place for ADULTS either participating or actually wanting to participate in rallies.....There's PLENTY to discuss about and around that...
But we get these peripheral people---the brilliant Psychology proffessor who wants to drone on about what he "needs" to do with the Yaw control thing in his Evo-----when he rally-crosses on grass....a complete and utter wanker...

What do we do?
What would you do?

Engage and foster those who are receptive and participatory.
Ignore those who prove to be a waste of time.

This forum is more like an ongoing bs session in the garage to me. Someone throws out a stupid idea, and the friends all chime in with reasons why it sucks or reasons why it's the best. The rally wagovan mentioned above for instance: that's not the best idea, but I would love to see an awd stanza wagon on stage! Supercharged AWD Previa might be the only greater thing.

The kid was getting a little out there and mouthy. He used the wrong "where/were/we're" and I pointed that out. I would do that to any of my friends. It would be said with a smile and a chuckle. Why? Because that crap is funny! Everyone that knows me personally will attest to my daftness at times, I think it's hilarious.
"Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone."

JVL and I go back and forth on crap and little arguments all the time. I wouldn't call us enemies, and I've had plenty of good conversations with him face to face. I like the guy and I think he has a lot of great ideas and experience. He may see it differently, but that's how I see it.

I 'get' an initial rebuff and/or challenging.
What I don't get is some of the prolonged badgering and petty name calling.
At some point, even hangin' in the garage, you'll just turn your back on someone who is being stupid.

It's a desire to unfuck perceptions so maybe people don't make the same mistakes we made. Or discourse can occur so maybe differing goals can be brought to light. The first step to going somewhere is knowing exactly where you want to be going,...

Also, if one agrees with something and doesn't have anything to add, what are you gonna post? Mindless drivel.

It's not a rally car but it was mine.
I was waiting for these "adults" to man up and stop what you call feeding the trolls haha.
everything I've said is all the truth.
was everything out of place and shouldn't of been said ...... yes, yes it was. am I sorry I even started all of this? Nahh it's funny to watch the reaction and opinions of grown adults, I think every thred on here that has a question gets diluted and convoluted answers do to the people that just put the the hole thing down and then the people that make jokes on top of the hate. Or did we forget how to coexist

And my rambling I felt like the hole time

I have the ability to create madness or make peace within...
I have the ability to destroy my worst intentions my worst intentions

It's not a rally nor will I ever own a rally car but this hunk of crap was mine for a month until they repo'd it .
I was waiting for these "adults" to man up and stop what you call feeding the trolls haha.
everything I've said is all the truth but my spell check doesn't work worth a shit .
was everything out of place and shouldn't of been said because I am a mental midget ...... yes, yes it was yes I am . am I sorry I even started all of this proving I know less than jack shit about cars not to mention rally and quit school in grade 6 ? Nahh it's funny to watch the reaction and opinions of grown adults when a spoiled wannabe fuktard tries to play troll , I think every thred on here that has a question gets diluted and convoluted ( thank you google big words ) answers do to the people that just put the the hole thing down and then the people that make jokes about me on top of the hate I will ramble on more without a comma because I dropped out in grade 6 to be a Marine . Or did we forget how to coexist when some spoiled punk asks dumb as hell questions and annoys the hell out of rallys ELITE arguing they are right and the rally community doesn't know shit screw this period as well it is not needed so there

And my mentally unstable rambling I felt like the hole time

I should have stayed in school to get a good job not with my dad to even afford anything close to rally
I need to develop better taste in cars
I premature ejaculate
I have the ability to create madness or make peace within IF I take my broken head meds on time ...
I have the ability to destroy my worst intentions my worst intentions , not even sure what this even means but I wrote it anyhow to seem cool
