- Why won't my MG start but I've been to lazy to actually have a look.
- Gee, my MG blew a light, any idea why?
There have been some bloody silly threads discussed ad nauseum at this
place. Sometimes, the poster just doesn't know, and that is fair enough,
it's why we are here. At other times, the poster has just been bone lazy.
We've had some plug boring threads about nothing go on and on. Seriously,
of the half dozen lists I am on, this is the one with the most crap and the
most boring, and it's the only one where I regularly skip a large
proportion of the posts. However, there is a lot of good stuff here, and it
keeps us in touch with our cars and others who love them - that's why most
of us stay.
To complain about the F1 thread is fair enough - it is not MG related, but
the tone of some of the later complaints is not! If you want to stop
something, do it respectfully, or not at all. Don't slag other people's
interests. Don't slag other people's cars, or brands, or badges, or
anything, unless you do it in OBVIOUSLY joking tone.
Sometimes, this list is not worth being on, and this is one of them.
