  • Is ton buying a deisel car worthy of a 5 page argument?

    His original threads been closed, he only wanted to let us know he’d bought a car.
    5 pages of arguing, was it warranted?
    Yes or no!

    (Not the car I’m sure it got a warranty)

    Ton and Diesel are proper nouns. A bit of grammar pedantry should kick off another five pages of wasted internet.

    I’ve not read it but I feel it could be important. Maybe someone could do a 2 page summary of the key points in case anyone missed it

    Some of the points in both arguments were quite good and informative, but as is typical a slanging match ensued and quite rightly it got closed.

    But did we ever find out what car Ton actually bought ? It’s all I want to know.

    No.
    If question = car, answer = stonking V8.
    Petrol.

    as soon as someone says ‘you’re talking rubbish’ the person who was talking rubbish gets mildly offended and argues back with a slightly more insulting comeback and then it just spirals into shite!

    The arguments as always were based each contributor trying too hard to find the 5% of comments that didnt align even if it wasn’t relavant to their point they were making.
    The general tone was shrill and uncomprimising with few personal insults so
    I opted out.

    Thats my choice as it is anyone elses so I wouldn’t have closed it but the mod makes a fair point, why should he read through a load of windbags rantings to
    make the desicion, just close it and go to bed.

    Here is a picture of Ton’s purchase. I think in all the handbag waving he got some mixed messages but being STW the word Audi got through 😆

    People were baffled by depth of knowledge challenging pre conceived ideals then some one threw their toys out and locked it.

    That’s just silly, we all know that various people enter each thread pre-offended so they can get off to a flying start

    Much as I like this forum it does get a bit silly sometimes, and dare I say…heavily moderated.

    Ah is that thread closed – it was brilliant :(. It really was worth discussing as it isn’t as clear as folks would like it to be. The tangent they went off on was 100% STW with waayyy more knowledge than you normally get in this sort of stuff

    Is disappointed

    starts new thread on black starting although I’m not sure blackstarting a thread on black starting works. You need the diesel one first

    Not often I feel the need to read a Ton post – but I feel I am missing out now …

    Is it the ten minutes or the full half hour?

    I’ll review it later and reopen it. In the meantime…
