Default WHY?

to administer and moderators dont move this post please?
OK THIS I NOT A KILL AT ALL
BUT WHY DO CERTAIN MEMBERS ALWAYS HAVE TO GET THREAD'* LOCKED BY SPEAKING THE MIND?
THE TOPIC IS KILL STORIES
THE AUTHOR OF THE THREAD DOESNT ASK FOR 2 CENTS OR INFORMATION LIKE OTHER TOPICS IN THE BONNEVILLE CLUB FORUM
SO IF SOMEBODY SAYS THE DID IT( RACED SOMEBODY) MAYBE THEY DID MAYBE IT SOUNDS LIKE A [email protected] BUT THERE I ONLY 2 PEOPLE WHO CAN VERIFY THE MAN UP STAIRS AND THE INDIUDUAL AND NOBODY CAN SAY I DIDNT HAPPEN
BECAUSE IN A RACE THERE IS ALOT OF FACTORS
GUESS ALL IM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT I'D HATE TO SEE THE KILL STORIES GO BECAUSE OF IGNORANCE

Have some penned-up frustrations you can't get out in real-life?

i have to disagree, some call it efighting some call it flaming i think that there is no room for that on any serious forum

If you want e fighting try the AAG forum at CGP.com

NOW...JOE....CAPS OFF PLEASE

I simply state my distaste for the SAME OLD CRAP that I read day in and DAY out in Kill Stories...Kill stories has the same group of people repeating the same things over and over and it gets repetitive.

You want opinions, you want variety...create some of it...entertain us. Don't pander.

Or I can just let Kill Stories go to the chithouse...

i for one like kill stories, i think it gives people a good chance to talk about experiences that might be entertaining to other members of the forum, or if someone just wants to brag about a kill, however i do understand how liars can get annoying and repetitive, but i think that that just comes with the job, anyway thats just my opinion, some might not like it but i just wanted to put it out there

I think the trend that I've noticed the most on alot of forums is someone post a kill story, then some character has to say something on the lines of this:

"That <insert car here> is a POS"
"We look alot better"
"Better quality, fit, finish"
"mods blah blah"
"you'd kill him if you had a <insert mod here>"
"If you raced him off the line"
"if you raced him from a roll"

ect...

What does that have anything to do with straight line speed? Arguing over which story is B.*. or not does add alittle flair IMO, but I've noticed some people taking it at a personal level and even making personal attacks.
