Maybe it's because I'm a little older than most of the people on the board, at least I feel like I'm older, but I don't find the point/fun in talking about driving way faster than you should on public roads.
Like I said I don't care about hearing abou the kill you had, just don't go into all the details about it.
Details are what make the story good. If I had just posted that I got a reckless driving ticket and took it to court and got out of it, the story would not have been nearly as interesting as going into details about how the cop reacted, what happened, talked about the video, etc... Pretty much everyone elses stories also revolve around details, we are nothing without the juicy details.
Now I am not trying to take over your job here or be rude or anything, but why should it matter to us if YOU don't like hearing about somebody driving fast on open roads or cutting through traffic? If everybody else likes and enjoys it, why should one person who does not like it (you) ruin it for everyone else?
Half the posts on this forum are like that, and without them, this forum would not be nearly as fun as it is. I have been a member of this site for a long time and I never really bothered to check out any other section except for E36 cause thats my car, but one day I decided to check this other stuff out and all these crazy stories are whats keeping me here. Over the past few weeks, I have spent more time in this forum than the E36. If you take away the freedom to post whatever, I am sure that other people will also stop coming by here and move elsewhere.
See...there are details again. If I had just said "I don't like your rule, its stupid" all rather than going into explanations and arguements, I would not have been able to get my point across Details are key, anywhere you are.
AJ- Sorry if I came off as rude or arrogant, but you gotta understand where all of us are coming from, I am 100% positive that there are many others who share my opinion. If you don't like what I said or don't agree, PM me and we can duke it out there. Or maybe we can start a flame war here...
