Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

I second the hurt feeling! FFS its a motorcycle forum. You ask a dumb question (Google has alot of answers as does the search funtion on this forum), you post something reckless or dangerous, provide stupid advise, etc, you will be put in your place. Harden up and take it on the chin. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. You dont like it, then dont use a forum, which by its nature is a place to share your thoughts and opinions.

All I am trying to say, is, if you are going to post images of your latest mod, at least take the picture in good light, and use the camera in whatever orientation it takes to have the picture show right side up.

Otherwise, you are right, I will not even click on the thumbnail and will move on to the next thread.

That was actually #8 on my list, but I refreshed the thread and retyped everything and forgot about it.

Tis better to be thought a fool and remain silent, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

I feel like I don't post enough, but that's mostly due to all my questions already bring answered. I have the same issue on the miata boards too....

Oh, and idiots giving advice to newbies, that gets on my nerve.

In no particular order, a few of mine...

- Spelling & grammar.

- Hair brain, half baked ideas, the worse being those which are unsafe.

- Members who start the majority of their new threads in the General Discussion forum, when clearly the subject matter of those threads fits in one of the other topic specific forums. Hardly a day goes by without having to move at least a handful of threads to their proper forums.

- Hurt feelings. As Aus Rider so eloquently put it, "FFS it's a motorcycle forum"... some would do well to grow a pair.

- Every time someone starts a thread asking a question about engine oil, it's only a matter of time before The Great 'What's The Best Oil' Debate begins, and days later ends with people getting butt hurt over it all.

- Members who spam other members threads with unsolicited crap like "I've got a (fill in the blank) that I'm looking to sell... PM me if you're interested". I find these types of posts to be annoying at best. I think from here on out I'm just going to delete (or edit) those types of posts.

- Thread highjacking, particularly when others pile on to the 'new' discussion... it's just rude.
