Someone's having a pity party

Oh. wait.nevermind. I'm tired I wasn't thinking. I've been called all sorts of shit altely because I think people don't have scads of money to throw away for shit.... but it is clear the organsiers and Federation want rich people.
:-(

I thought about leaving this alone, but thought it was worth commenting on.

FWIW John, I don't think ANY of the shit you've received - ever - is because anyone has an issue with you supplying budget parts and helping people to see a more affordable path to enjoying rally and enjoying it longer. In fact, I'd suggest most people here are more than happy to point people in your direction for fabrication services with only a few caveats - none of which are 'deal breakers'

With a few exceptions, any shit you receive is well earned. In some cases, the shit you receive wouldn't be called shit by most normal people and certainly wouldn't be called shit compared to what you regularly throw out, often as the first volley.

If we look at it honestly I don't think you can blame either the organisers or federations for people wanting to spend more on this hobby than you think they should. That goes to everything from driving a blue Subaru to buying split collars for $26 for a pair and a spare instead of sourcing, or making, a custom fabbed option.

So if it's not clear, and it seems it isn't... thanks, John, for being a good source of information and affordable parts for the rally community. While I won't always agree with what you say or how you say it, your voice and dedication to the sport is a valuable part of the spectrum of opinions in the community.

Moronson. a one line throw away snippy comment about others being dicks doesn't not require an epric droning paragraph of shit from you.
Morision learn to shut up or go away drone and rant on YOUR local fucking nowhereville site.

This forum, was founded to get away from people like you.

I'm guessing you didn't even read what I wrote, and wrote with sincerity.
It's a shame, really. We all know that 'one line throw away snippy comments' betray honest sentiments that even the speaker sometimes doesn't recognize or wouldn't normally vocalize.

Regardless, the last paragraph stands, and I invite others to share their appreciation for John' contributions to the rally community.

That makes no sense at all. You don't start an unmoderated forum to be able to avoid people. Rather, the main reason to start an unmoderated forum is to enable people who do things that would get them banned from other forums to do what they wish (or, at least, can't stop themselves from doing).

I like pie. Apple. But Strawberry rhubarb is my favorite.



Grassroots rally. It's what I think about.

I wonder how many people ever eat anything with rhubarb. Mmmmmm strawberry and rhubarb..
Used to be a guy up here that made wines and liqueurs from different stuff and he had a rhubarb wine that was simply amazingly yummy...

Born and raised in northern MN. Every potluck had rhubarb something or other on the table. This little old lady used to make the BEST rhubarb cake brownie things. I remember being a little kid and literally eating my self sick of them.

Oh yeah most definitely. I've got a couple memories banked too from when I was "knee high to a grasshopper," in the duck blind with my dad, chowing down rhubarb jam slathered croissants. Shit now I'm kind of sad the seasons over lol. Craving some rhubarb now.....

Dude, most of the people I talk to down here (North Carolina) have never even seen it. At least in the middle of the state, it's too hot to grow it. Up in Maine where I grew up, it was all over the place.

I couldn't purchase rhubarb around here if I tried... and I have.
