I realize that I'm kinda jumping in at the end here, but as a former powersports dealership owner I think I understand some of the points trying to be made. ALL of my service customers were treated fairly and professionally, but I was willing to do just a little more for people who had purchased from me. By the way, I sold the business at a profit, it didn't fold due to my practices. I now work for a manufacturer, and you can imagine how difficult it is trying to find a decent dealer. If you can find an honest guy who will stick with you for a couple of years, it's a great thing. You may see more factory direct sales if things don't change.

Yep. With honors. My point was not that your definition was wrong. It was that people who start defining the word debate are PISSED. It was an issue of psychology of language, not correct usage.

you sure seem to be all fired up.
My substance was that I didn't understand why Buyafountain was getting his azz chewed. I didn't see why you had such a crappy attitude, and I still don't. I never was fired up. If I was, you would know it.

People who are comfortable don't talk about it, they just are. Again, psychology.
My position is that Buyafountain got unfairly jumped by people with misplaced aggression. Making that point got me a little dose of that same aggression. So what. It's really hard to get fired up about some jerk spewing his bad day at everybody. I let it slide off of my back when people disrespect me on the PC, because nobody ever does it to my face.

No. I was able to tell that you were on a rampage by the content of your posts. Still can. For charity I raise money that improves the quality of care and the outcomes for sick and injured kids. Sometimes even save their life, but mostly just make it better. But no matter how much I do for the kids, they always give me back more than I have given them. It's nice to know that you are the right person at the right place at the right time, doing the right thing. But I am willing to read your mind if you want to make a donation. It would be tax deductable. I'm sure that it wouldn't take long at all.

Reading your posts gives one all the education that they need in regard to your comfort level, friend. (Good to make friends).
If you are telling me not to post on threads that you have posted on, your attitude has exceeded your enforcement authority.

Yes, this thread is busting at its seams from all the honor.
If you don't want others posting, "let the readers come to their own conclusions" limit your dialog to PMs?

Don't jump my chit because I don't get why you are being a pr*ck and then call me a troll.

Your attack on me makes about as much sense as your attack on Buyafountain.

Bad day on playground? Ok, take your ball and go home. It was your tantrum in the first place.
