Is there a thread or forum or electronic area where folks who wanted to "step off the porch" for a while can rail into each other, without fear of the thread being locked?
I shudder at my own suggestion. It sounds barbaric, like the gladiators in Rome.
Yet, I am ashamed to admit that I have derived a limited bit of enjoyment reading the creative ways that Ford owners put down Dodge owners who put down future Chevy owners, who put down Ford owners. And how they all then rally together to put down imaginary Mercedes owners.
This newly proposed forum would be like just like that harmless drag race of '36 Fords, only it would be a dragstrip of supercharged, overblown, hot air injected attitudes. Fun stuff.
Some simple rules. No threats to life or property and No vulgar language (other than incompletely spelled euphemisms already commonly in use here).
Maybe this area already exists. Forgive me if I haven't made proper use of the search feature. Maybe everyone's been there, done that, got tired of it, or discovered things didn't work out, or got out of control. Whose control? I suppose it depends on one's tolerance level.
I understand about maintaining this excellent site's credibility as a respectful and respectable resource of information. A priority, without a doubt, that I applaud.
But, you have to admit, ever since the maturation of the automotive age, there has always been this rivalry between proud owners of the Big Three automaker's products. It is a rivalry that is woven into the fabric of Americana. The threads to this fabric may get locked from these forums, but it will be a long time before they get cut from these Americans.
Give them a venue. A roped ring. An "OK" corral. A place to say, "hey let's take this
outside." Of course they can just e-mail each other, but then it WOULD be too personal. Much of this banter is just for show. Besides, how could I read it, then.
Anyway, this hairbrained idea may not be unique, and may get this thread shut down. I will say no more. It's hard enough admitting what I already have. By the way, I wonder how many hits that thread would get? There could be catagories like FedEx diesel parcel delivery trucks VS. UPS brown delivery....
Ok. Censors are a coming...
