Thread Crapping

"Thread Crapping" occurs when a person comes into a thread and posts something contrary to the spirit/intent of the thread, often derailing the discussion or turning it into an argument.

For example, coming into a thread about "The Greatest Beatles Album" and posting "The Beatles were overrated" is a thread crap. Another example: In a thread titled "I love my new Apple Macintosh!", someone posting "PCs are better and cheaper" is a thread crap.

If you feel the need to turn a discussion into a debate, start a new thread instead.

So, thread crapping is making statments "This turbo kit is overrated" with no reasons as to why , correct? Or saying "Company Xs turbo kit is better" ?

Glad I didn't make any statements like that:) I can't recall making any comparisons, oh, wait, I think I DID make a comparison to Ford Racing Products, hope their turbo kits for the SRT don't sell better, I might feel bad:)

So to ask a vendor what mode were used to produce a certain level of power is nuthugging? So somehow logic says that valid questions should NOT be asked?
I'm puzzled here:)

To make examples

"Company YY is better than Company XX!!!!!" With no factual explanation as to why you think that. Would be thread crapping, right?

"Company YYs kits are great!!!!!" After watching a tape of a Company YY kit blowing up a whole village would be ignoring logic and nuthugging, right? :)

Glad I haven't made any statements like that:)

Or maybe making disparaging comments and insults to somebody asking valid questions, ignoring the logic that folks might want to know about a product AS tested, would be "nuthugging"?

Whaddya think?:)

Oh, and 4B, try a toilet with a much lower water level, that should take care of that:)

I'm not really sure what brought this thread on, but I'm not shy about putting my opinions in writing...

Thread crapping is simple to define. Go to any AGP thread and you will find Psi-Fi people (not neccessarily Psi-Fi themselves) crapping on the the thread for no apparent reason. Go to any Psi-Fi thread and you'll find AGP people (not neccessarily AGP themselves) doing the same thing. Go to any S2 thread more than a month or two old, and you'll find AGP and Psi-Fi people crapping on the thread.

Nuthugging, according to my peers, is what I do. I choose the best engineered, best tested product, and stick with it, even though it may not make all of the power of the other people, or be available as early as the others, and then defend those products from thread crappers. It's all a matter of attitude, people who choose products like I do may not have big dyno numbers, or really low quarter-mile times, but we seem to have a much better track record when it comes to reliability. I guess it doesn't matter to us who is fastest, just who can race every weekend. I guess that really bugs some people.

I suppose there is another kind of nuthugger. There is the kind that buy something just because it is new, and available, and then feel that they either have to commit to making that company/product successful at all costs, or admit that they wasted $700 again... I think those people are who this thread may be aimed at, but I would classify those peoples as classic thread crappers....

I know I learned my lesson earlier when I got involved in an AGP thread. I thought I was trying to help, and even sided with the AGP person, but because I'm not an AGP customer/user/thread crapper, I obviously didn't belong in that thread... I feel kinda bad for the guy with misfires who PM'ed me asking for help. After seeing the AGP turbo in his sig, I just pointed him to indicators that are blowing engines around here...

sorry But I fail to see how this relates to the SRT-4. clean up the thread or move it to off topic. Please!
Go right ahead and clean it up. I don't have that power in this area. I don't want the thread to go away, just the off color comments.

Now see, according to the rules, you CAN say you prefer that. But you CAN'T say that they are overrated.

See the distinction.

You prefer PMs (NOT private messages:)) = statement of your personal preference.

TCs are overrated = Value judgement without referent, meaning overated compared to what? Using what scale? In who's opinion?

But you CANNOT ask how my TC was equipped:) Or I'll call you names and dismiss you as a bad person:)
