Wot happened to attabloke?

19 posts in this topic

Did he get tired of all the bickering over Vauxhall's status and leave? He did provide some interesting colour and perspective..

That's too bad. I did enjoy his different perspective, although his holier-than-thou attitude was sometimes annoying.

Still, he had a lot of good info to share. Too bad we scared him off.

Yeah he was interesting to follow, but I've never found anyone so hard-headed about their "knowledge" of the industry.......like I still remember the "battle" he and I had when he tried to convince all of us that an Astra doesn't compete with the Mazda3....because the Astra has a 1.8L engine and the Mazda3 has a 2.3L engine....

I don't miss him. Obnoxious pricks like him who condescend to everyone else, and cannot play nice never last long on these boards. Lord Stafford quickly comes to mind.

i miss him.

he's one of the few people that actually lend some credibility to this site, not that everything he spoke was gospel. and he certainly had a british way about him that was amusing. but let's be honest, this site is far less interesting without AH-HA, evok, and aatbloke calling out the ludicrous, the insane, the stupidity and the just plain wrong info that many others post.

it's also funny that many don't miss him, yet you're quite happy, for example, to keep a guy on the board who blatantly lies about about some things (that red LS7 zeta roaming around the UK comes to mind), and is an annoying arrogant prick in his own way.

That's right.

Oh, I certainly miss AH-HA and evok, but aatbloke isn't even in the same league. The first two actually knew things, and shared that knowledge with the site. I never saw aatbloke really contributing to the site other than to pick fights and nitpick other posters to death...and he really did not know as much as he thinks he knows, as thegriffon repeatedly pointed out.

More than once I considered not posting here any more because of him. I was tired of his condesension and his constantly talking over everyone's heads. His deliberate obfuscation on issues relating to who owns what were tiresome.

He knows a hell of a lot more than aatbloke did, and he has been a reliable and knowledgable poster since the beginning.

I think this thread has served it's purpose. We don't need a debate on the merits of other members.
