    Forum Posting Suggestion

    I have noted recently that some of the posters on this forum engage in some pretty heated exchanges- are called out, proven wrong, or simply make themselves look like idiots, then slither back onto the forum and edit out their posts or replace them with random characters.

    This makes the thread look odd and lets them cover the tracks of their behavior so to speak. What does this mean?

    It means that this forum is becoming a recognized checkpoint for RJ buyers and they (those deleting their posts) dont want their behavior to hurt their sales.

    Now while I believe we generally all subscribe to the concept of forgiveness, that does not mean that some that someone should cover their tracks. Be a man and acknowledge what you say or do and if necessary apologize.

    So here is my suggestion- always imprint a response to an involved party on the forum with a quote reply- This allows everyones commentary to be etched in stone and it eliminates the ability for people on this forum to eliminate their posts.

    If you have the guts to say it-stand behind it.

    My two cents plus interest,

    Scorp
    Cowards often find courage behind a keyboard. If you want to get personal, look me in the eye when you say it, and be man enough to deal with the consequences.

    Bullying whiny little scammers everywhere. Don't like it? Just keep crying.

    Or limit the time that you can edit to a couple of hours or so...
    If you think nobody cares, try missing a payment...

    I see a lot of it getting out of hand. On the other side when its crappy outside and cash flow is low so working on the car is not an option its like a soap opera on here! Grab a blanket, some hot cocoa or a cold beer, snuggle up the monitor and see what happens...

    He might but he's probably too busy working on his car
