If anyone has a problem (personal issues) regarding BC, we have a very capable admin/mod staff to address these problem. Inter=personal problems are bound to happen. If it stems from mechanical ignorance as Seth mentioned, the take the joke with a grain of salt. And learn, so that it won't happen again.

We all have to maintain an air of humour and good taste, its what makes this forum great

I think the laughter is to lighten the mood around here so people aren't always complaining abut what happened to their stuff. That way we can bring up silly stories of our experiences too. But if it'* distasteful, and disrespectul i agree that they need a slap on the wrist..

EDIT: Wasn't me was it? I've had some weird late might posts... If i knew the person personally then maybe, and they woulda understood it.
Nope, wasn't you at all.

NO HUD?????



Oops. Did I take that too far?

Sorry!

In all seriousness (just for the moment, though) when someone is in distress, joking is fine, as long as the business is getting done, too. They post for a mechanical assist, so let'* give 'em the assist AND a little light-heartedness.

Good post, Steve.

It has alot to do with how much you understand the other person'* personality. Such as me and Bill, we can care less if one or the other has serious car trouble.
