I was going to post this with the caption "Obvious troll is obvious" but damn if some m.netters aren't responding to it.

Has anyone else contemplated selling their current Miata out of sheer disappointment? - MX-5 Miata Forum

Would it be too obvious to say something like:

"As we know, bump-steer, SAI, and scrub radius are just stupid technical-sounding terms to mask the real problem: electric steering."

200HP meant that I would be getting one within a year or two. 175HP meant that it would be considered alongside other contenders. Definitely a test drive, at least.

155HP means I probably won't unless some incredible deal falls in my lap. Sorry, I'm getting too old to be rebuilding cars to make them what I want. I'd rather spend money vs. what is left of my back.

200hp would mean one of us might actually want to own it while it was in warranty.

Got a PM from someone with 15k posts on m.net.

My first inclination was to join the ridicule, had the thread not been closed. After a minute of thought, your post seemed to show a worrisome degree of insecurity. If you truly would sell your car over concern about the reputation of a different car, then I suggest you talk face-to-face with someone about this and any other worries or anxieties, if only as a reality check. If instead your post was some odd sarcasm or satire, then haha you got me but I'm only laughing to be polite.

Are the members on m.net so archaic that they don't understand the idea of trolling.

I think they understand the concept, but the trolling is often so close to the topics that AREN'T trolling that they're no longer capable of discerning the difference.

Pretty sure that happens to us here sometimes, but usually the noobs/trolls get banned so fast it doesn't matter.

You know, Ben, I'm really concerned about your sanity . . . . There's a distinct possibility you might be sane. Could lead to banning.

I'm leaving work in 30 minutes. I'll go home and get drunk and mull over ideas for tomorrow's topic.

I feel blessed, though. Mark Booth himself posted in today's thread.

I can't believe no one has called you out yet. If it was only one thread that would be one thing but you are clearly establishing a pattern.
