problem with any forum is at some point a troll or keyboard warrior will show up.
I was on a S10 forum once cause the trans mount on my truck broke. I mentioned that I had done some burnouts and joked that the cause was likely that. Next thing you know, a guy who had been on the forum for a long time started berating me for doing burnouts in a 4cyl s10. He (on a s10 forum) called the 4cyl s10 a POS.
I defended saying that I was surprised to have a driveline issue from my style of driving (im not that rough, but do like to have some fun) because I had many older cars with more miles that never gave me an issue. I put up the list of cars, yotas, Volvos, Nissan, Honda ect. His reply to my list...."looks like a list of junkyard trash"
Those are trolls. it does not matter what you say, they will either take what you say out of context....or they will reply as if they actually know you personally and can make a true judgment of you. They will quickly turn it personal, tho there is never any reason to do so. I
t can be frustrating, but the only way for you to win with a troll, is to not reply.
but generally speaking, RCU is the best forum ive ever been on. Basically, I only go on other forums if they are specific to a model I am working on or need more info on.
It does seem strange if others got kicked off by those guys because they complained to the mods. I mean, as long as your posts are clean of language and no racism or stuff like that was said, they shouldn't be kicked just for arguing with others.
As we know, every one on the internet is always right
