I certainly don't hold any hatred for Bobba just completely different views...the initial post though is designed to divide opinion and cause backlash and im sure he knew the floodgates would open when he wrote it

The OP must be a very insecure person to start a thread like he has."Man up"springs to mind.

You say that Keith, but he consistently tried to wind both me and you up (even on non related threads) Had it not been for the way in which we dealt with it we could have been having the same arguments.

I agree people should live and let live, we have had different opinions but never been an issue. At the same time though, a antagonistic character trying to get a rise out of people is not exactly good for the forum and shouldn’t really have to be tolerated.

Perfect example here on my new car thread....

http://forums.m3cutters.co.uk/showthread.php?t=188634

I’d already said it won’t be everyone’s taste and I didn’t cry about his opinion as it’s a open forum, but if writing “devil car, and it looks rubbish” isn’t trying to antagonise then I don’t know what is. I’m not expecting him to sugar coat is opinions, but there are certainly better ways to say it whilst not annoying people.
I certainly couldn’t imagine you saying that as you’d just use some modicum of intelligence and do it in a better manner.

You would have thought so but people do get really upset what's said on the net. Place is full of snowflakes.

I agree he can be difficult, I have been on the receiving end, maybe I'm more willing to move on than hold deep grudges.

Regardless, differences aside, on a human level it's not nice for an entire group to savage someone over 8 pages, and all this was sparked from another thread that was overtaken by people jumping in with boots on, and IMO, undeservedly. The bigger, more humane people would ignore and move on, not join forces and relentlessly beat down on an individual for pages and pages. I don't care who the victim is, morally, that's not how we play. I guess some people have been waiting for this moment and think he more than deserves it all. But for my taste, this has gone too far, hence why I said something.

But I've said my bit now. As you were...

Leave the Porsche be. It's sex on wheels. I would love to see more Porsche pics on the forum but then it is an M forum after all.

I don't think everyone is sticking the boot in Boba by any stretch of the imagination. I'm certainly not. I'm just keeping the thread going

I wonder when Google finally bring out their driverless car, if... when approaching red lights, the car starts to slow down... if the car will get the same verbal abuse for slowing down.
I get this a lot too, I expect that I have pounded a divot out in the floor pan under the carpet of the foot well with all my "passenger braking". She has even noticed and repeatedly asks me why I'm doing it as she sees the oncoming hazzard

Quite strange because years ago my best friend drove like a total maniac, I was used to his late braking etc, and we were never in any accident. I never flinched at his actions, I obviously had a lot of faith in him & maybe nerves of steel. People used to ask how I could sit next to him driving a car, yet look at me now with my own wife?

Men shouldn't be driven by women unless drunk. It's as simple as that. If I see a bloke during the day being driven by his missus I just think what a fag. It's a man's job to drive. It's a woman's job to run the house. It's just the way it is. I'm sure loads will disagree, all you modern ahem..... "men".

Medication prohibits mate, I'm not going to be the next Harry Clarke ruining families lives from my stupidity

On the drunk front, that's when you need a lift most and from her least. Taxi home, rarely a problem yet I am always sea sick after she brings me home from town and end up on the porcelain telephone for a good half hour.

All my own doing if course she says

Sounds like she was certainly one in a million and I suppose you can forgive her for not enjoying driving the 911.

My mates sister is like this, the bloke she married has well landed on his feet. House is always immaculate and he has woken to a cooked breakfast everyday since they got married . Strangely I never saw her as the perfect model housewife when we were younger
