Could be that it seems like so many because they all happened within a very short period of time, just a day or two. And it could be 4 threads because 1 simply got deleted, and not just closed.

The two Tesla threads got shut down due to an individual, and his aggressive insulting and bad-mouthing of anyone who disagreed with his opinions.


Ya I got called “Elmer Fudd”... ‘an I thought right away “but I’m a better shot than Elmer Fudd...”


[emoticon] I have used that phrase before. But was most definitely not directed at you. Don't remember you ever trolling or using personal attacks.

Too many snowflakes who'll start the name-calling "fanboi" -- can dish it but can't take it with too quick a finger crying uncle to the moderator when their fragile ego gets hurt.

[emoticon].... I got a talking to by a moderator the very first post I made on the r v dot net. I had just finished a course on heavy truck aerodynamics and started a thread to share a short bit of info around aerodynamics and power and fuel economy in big vehicles the day a big food fight about “air foils” had just taken place and got closed. Oops.

Then there are Trolls that have to quote every post you make and THINK they know your intent. It gets very old!



What is your intent, on some of your posts, I do wonder !!!! If this is trolling so be it, but you seem to throw out as much as you get ,just saying , and most likely this thread is not long for this world.

Oh, you hit a raw nerve there. Some folks don't want to go cerebral as it will cause them a big headache, so they'll try to pull the topic down with idiotic irrelevant post.

Using fanboy to describe a group of males who are extreme fans of a certain brand is not name calling and it is not the same as calling a specific person a degrading name. The very definition of fanboy is a male who is extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something. So it is not name calling.

I did not deny anything. Nor did I ask the mods to close any threads. I am just stating that using the correct definition of the word fanboy for a group of brand fans in general is completely different than calling a specific person a degrading name.
