Default Guess the owner from this quote!

Can you guess who wrote this:
Quote:
While I have heard that they are available via ebay for those prices (around $200), I have priced them as I did for two reasons: 1. I have not personally shopped ebay for these items and therefore I can only comment on the prices I have seen. I will not shop ebay for these parts because as a matter of principle I will not go to ebay for parts that I can get from a Miata.net vendor or via the classifieds. Ebay is a last resort for some hard to get items, and that's it. 2. A shop would mark up the prices to at least the market rate for them if you get them on your own, perhaps even more, putting them in the $300-$400 price range, and my primary goal was to explain that the $1000 quote wasn't very far off of what it should be.

He makes me laugh every time I see his stuff. Why would someone pay up to 2X's the price just to buy from the freakin vendors? Hobie is such a D.B.
He's saying that $1000 isn't too bad for a stock shock or GR2 shock install.

I'm sure he's going to love me comment, or completely ignore it.

Brain, your taunting is so enjoyable to read.

That guy gives me headaches. I had a "fight" with him about the benefits of an LSD... and wanted to bash my head against a wall to make it stop.

what better service? Because they sponsor a website you HAVE to buy from them?

The National Socialist Movement advertises on a few websites, I'll make sure to buy all my **** merchandise through them and not the local skinheads that hang out in the alley, which would be more convenient and easier and cheaper.


what has m.net done for you lately other than given you a voice that most people laugh at daily?

You're way out of line
Calling people retards? Slamming the site?
You've been around long enough - what gives? Or did some 12-year-old hijack your account?
