El Kabong Checking In

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit late to the party but I'm the latest arrival from Motor Trend forums. I'm just looking for a quiet place to post stuff without World War III breaking out. Oh, and if the software will let me post and update all new posts that would be a bonus.

For those who don't know me, I'm a GM guy who plays footsies with Mopar. I currently have an example of each in my garage. While I have no issues with brand preference, I consider fanbois to be a plague roughly equivalent to locusts or syphillis. I have no idea how frequent a contributor I'll be because my work schedule is a but hectic and goofy.

Anyways, thanks for having me. So there ya go.

That makes just about everybody now, at least the ones that you would want to see migrate.  There's a couple more still missing, but it's a short list of those who haven't made the move and should.

Welcome, Glad to have you here, while everyone is welcome here including the crazy Fanbois, we do love to have an open discussion of the auto industry and welcome your viewpoints. Look forward to seeing your posts and discussing the auto world we currently live in plus the blasts from the past! :D

Yes, yes I do, yet today I still find myself going back there and continuing to argue with 'Stang.  I clearly must hate myself.

Alright, let's get into the nitty gritty. Finally a place to have real discussion, not the constant meandering at MT.

Just wait till you chat with SMK, he is a Hard Core Fruit Punch Drinking Mercedes Benz is better than everyone in the world and can do no wrong even with their garbage FWD appliances that clearly compete with Chevy and Toyota. MB is going down the self destruct road of trying to be everything to everyone just like GM did and we all know where that got them. BANKRUPT! Enjoy his passion! ;)

Yes I do know how bad it can get and if Trolls show up they will find themselves quickly sidelined. No place for Trolling, but for honest open discussions on our passion for the Auto Industry.

Casa was probably worse back in his prime, but he's cooled down since then.

Hopefully we will no longer have to find out.

Nice to see ya here. I was wonderin' when you would make your appearance.

 

About your actually post..."Hopefully we will no longer have to find out."

 

Casa has the idea to invite Wings over...

He told me straight out that he was not going to listen to me when I said  "NO EFFIN' WAY!!!".

So...there is that...

 

I dont care who invites who over...I aint the boss of them...but that is a big ....*SIGH*

I don't know, but I'm betting I would still take two of him over a Badstang any day, and I hate Mercedes.

It turns out...I may have to return to Grade 1...I apparently  have reading comprehension problems....

 

Casa will NOT be inviting Wings over...

I repeat....Casa will NOT be inviting Wings over...

 

Sometimes I could be such a dummy...

:retard:

 

and...what a RELIEF.

I lol'd at "plays footsies with mopar."

 

There are probably a good 10 more posters I'd like to have over here to really get the complete community, but this is a really solid start.

Yeah... Those guys and TAF are always the problem. I wish Wings would actually contribute his knowledge of engines, because he really does know his stuff in that regard, but he just can't stop being a shill.

Grand Turismo isn't that bad, he doesn't like Ford or GM equally. I don't know Casa, for a while I could have easily tossed you with the rest of them, but... you've changed and good on doing that.

Don't worry about it too much.  We have community modding and while I haven't needed to use it often, I'm not afraid of the warn button.

Just the fact that there is a warn button is a huge upgrade.  I think MT had an if you can't beat 'em join 'em button as far as modding went.

Well if someone gets too out of line and I'm not here, the red down arrow on their post votes it down.  Enough people do that and the post gets hidden... 

 

Conversely, if there is a post you really like, the green up-arrow votes a post up.  Enough people do that and the post gets a gold star.

 

This system keeps things pretty calm around here and I have to do very little moderation of things.

Yep, it's a whole different world here.  MT wasn't just playing in a lower league, they aren't even playing the same game as you guys.

I just checked in there to check my PMs. Zero traffic. The hot thread over there today was some middle-aged man bragging about his fitness regimen.

...yes, I'm pretty sure we all made the right decision.
