good points of view. this is the only kind of social media i bother with besides linkedin which is work related.
i dont tweet, insta or FB. most people annoy me so i avoid the drama threads. if i can contribute something positive i like to chime in. i have blocked a number of folks that seem toxic, they can spin in that world without me.
i feel this is generally a good group, the dampener thing is a bit of a dead horse at this point but its usually in good fun..

I've got a total of 3 people in my ignore filter. It helps, but I can still see all the angry responses to those same guys all the time. So yeah, hanging around a bit less myself. There's great people here but the signal to noise ratio isn't so good anymore. Ah well, same story everywhere. There's always someone to suck the fun out of a discussion.

But, I'm in Wisconsin, summer is here and it's time to get outside and do stuff anyway rather than sit and read forum debates.
I have all of you ignored, I just make random comments..............................................about dampers 🤣

I spend most of my social media time on Twitter so this place is an oasis of civility from my POV . But yeah, I think we could all do without the pissing matches here. 😇

There have been sooooo many times I wanted to reply with "Have you tried the search function ?!?!", but I do it for them, and nicely remind them about it. There are only so many times you can read "Has anyone tried this: tune, fender flares, lights, oil, seat covers, tires, wheels, offset, RTT, etc"......one of these days, I'm gonna lose it and :explode:
I am also guilty of the damper comments, but it's worth a chuckle or 2 :LOL:

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like here recently there is a lot of flaming and BS going on in a lot of threads. I'm not talking about threads going off topic but more actual flaming, name calling, insults, etc. Stuff that would get your teeth knocked out at a bar. I'm finding myself on here less just because it's frustrating and irritating to have to sift through pages of stupid arguments to find actual useful information. A lot of it seems to come from the same members too. Even after reporting posts nothing seems to change. I'm on multiple forums and this one seems to be the most hostile with is rather unfortunate. I guess this is more venting/ranting than anything.
I think it's just you.

Ditto, I ended Facebook almost a year ago. Never had the others, well except for Twitter, for only less than a week. Now that's a place where people are rude to say the least.
That said, you should all watch the documentary on Netflix, "The Social Dilemma" That will get you off all the Social media once you watch that.

As in social life generally, if I find somebody is being rude, annoying, insulting, etc., I just walk away. Forums are for fun, learning, and sharing, and so I just ignore the negatives (not by putting anyone on "ignore" but just by moving on to the next post). I happen to like the damper jokes, however--ignore me if that bothers you!

I could have wrote this post myself Marc. There are times I want to say something back when I see a dickhead post, but that only fuels the fire. So, I just move on by. A forum is just a small portion of the real world, and it mirrors it's portion as expected.

I've been on MANY different forums and this is one of the best! Not because I'm the Grand Poobah of dampers but because for the most part everyone gets along, is helpful and has fun. Sure there is some arguing once in a while but it's not out of control like other forums. I like that Rob lets us try and work things out ourselves and steps in once things get really out of hand. Sorry but I don't want a forum that's so heavily moderated that it's not fun anymore.

Does the damper subject get out of hand sometimes, yes it does but it's only in good fun. Most (not all) complaining about it haven't been here from the start and don't know how/why it all started. Heck I see more and more noobs start of by saying "Hi I'm so n so and yes I bought a damper" lol That's like putting a drink in front of an alcoholic, it's hard not to run with that. :bandit: The Bronco forum is full of Pineapple Pizza references and even though I think it's stupid and still don't get it I don't go on there complaining for those who have fun with it to stop.

Like anything in life if YOU don't like a certain subject just ignore it and move on to the next one. I don't have anyone on ignore but there are a few on here I don't even bother reading their posts and just skip over them. We're all grown adults here well most of us are 😜 .

Sorry for the long post, I don't mean to put a damper on anyones day. 🙃
