I do believe the OP is sincere in their desire to warns others of his poor furniture purchase. However drive by posters will always have credibility issues.
If the first time I meet you all you want to do is make a complaint vs. fully participate you will not be well received.

A better approach may have been:
"I recently purchased Brand XYZ furniture.It did not hold up well and I now need to replace it with something else.This is my 2nd attempt to get it right can you suggest a quality manufacture of RV furniture? Brand XYZ did not last very long at all. I am still in need of decent furniture."....

If you just come off as a one time poster with a rant your post will be easily dismissed.

Maybe by you two - don't be so presumptuous as to speak for the entire forum. If you don't like the post, as someone already stated - why bother?

Anyone wonder why this forum is slowing down. [emoticon] Too much BS from the old timers.

I am only speaking for myself. I'm not asking anyone to agree with my opinion or comments. Nevertheless if your post is just a one off rant it will be taken as just a one off rant by others vs. a post with more substance than just a rant.
Just my 2 cents. YMMV

Oh - OK - then I can tell you how to phrase things then - right?

If you are really speaking for only yourself, then instead of saying "If you just come off as a one time poster with a rant your post will be easily dismissed.", you should say something like:

In my opinion, If you just come off as a one time poster with a rant your post will be easily dismissed.

Or

If you just come off as a one time poster with a rant, I would most likely easily dismiss your post.

I'm sure you could come up with one on your own though.

You can word it however you want. You can agree or disagree but I do think you get my point.
A rant is generally a way to get and issue off your chest and make yourself feel better however I don't see it as the best way to communicate or get any real action or satisfaction.
A more reasonable tone and detailed post will be more effective vs. a rant.
Choosing the correct words is all about effective communication. A more simply stated"getting your point across." A rant maybe good for ones stress level, but it is not the most effective way to communicate.
If your just looking to scream at the world to relieve some stress ranting is fine and often helps. But if your looking to actually communicate with others ranting is not the best way.
