Thumbs down Did this guy really need to be banned?

https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/showthread.php?t=25010

Ban a guy because he calls a Miata a chick car? Or was it the gay hood scoop? Come on now, the ban stick is getting a little to big for its' britches.

I was waiting for someone to start this thread, I thought that was a pretty killer first post short of that scoop. But every day we get people that start off in the wrong section asking m.net type questions with their first post.

"Sort of the feel you get when you’re in the presence of something…something…engineered properly. Something engineered to be driven. Not something TO drive…something YOU Drive"

He seems to get it?

No I was getting ready to congratulate on a good first post and noticed the closed icons.

So that was some bs story?

There are several posts in the wrong section every day. Seems to me all of 3 people can find the WTB section.

I think your big stick has gone to your head.

With big stick come big responsibility.

Look, he's on now, just waiting to be let back in. Oooh, our old friend repo4sale is here too. Now THERE'S a worthy ban!

He seems to get it?
Was that before or after he pushed the overdrive off button on the auto shifter?

I do actually think the car looks pretty good, even the Ferrari-esque grill that blocks airflow to the radiator.

This is a fairly strange forum. I like it, don't get me wrong, but it is strange. There seems to be some Internet Mall Ninja attitudes pervasive among the admins. Not sure why but.... Maybe we all could lighten up a little and be nice to our fellow man... The whole "jump on the newb" does get old after awhile. Oops, never mind, that would m.net, what was I thinking???

Yeah he shouldn't have been baned. Now the newb that posted a huge paragraph on BS and refused to use grammar should have been baned, but he wasn't? WTF?
