this is for one thing, if you count how many replies were actually on topic, you could probably delete three pages of this thread. so don't tell me you're "trying to help me." this is why i'm frustrated.
this site doesn't allow pictures in sig's, so that the *site is easier to browse with less clutter*, and the pages load up quicker. does that mean no one can post pics of their car?
this site does not allow street racing meets, mainly because of reputation: they're trying to keep this site reputable by not condoning bad behavior. does that mean none of the admin's have ever gone for a spirited run on the street? no, but it's a matter of principle.
this site does not allow political chat, to keep flame wars to a minimum and to maintain a level of respect among all members. does that mean no one has a right to express themselves on here?
you guys are taking me as the grammar Nazi. all i'm doing is planning ahead for the future: if 1 out of every 10 threads is hard to read in 2005, then by 2010, at least half the threads will be hard to read. not only is this annoying for every single member of this site, but it will compromise the educational value and fun factor on this site.
i've learned most of what i know about the WRX from a) owning one, and b) this site. i know for a fact that if 50% of the threads were hard to read, comprehend, or frustrating, i would not know half of what i know now, and the site wouldn't have been as much fun.
sorry for the long post, but one last thing: you keep telling me how I'm getting flamed because i'm putting people down; well i've been getting "humored" for the last three pages of this thread and i've never blew up at anyone. i just feel strongly about this topic and my words might get carried away but i'm just *speaking my mind*, which is what you guys have been saying all along.
