Steve, who I gather is the Principal of TopLevelAuto, claimed to remove 70lbs from the trunk. I pointed out that the reduction in weight at the rear of the car will make a front-heavy machine handle worse, as per the laws of physics.
He, then, claimed to be able to remove 200lbs from the X. Given the math involved, that is pure bullshit that I illustrated in no uncertain terms - Algebra doesn't lie. Worse, his claimed reduction in weight was based on parts that are a figment of his imagination - they don't exist! It's pure fantasy.
A short time later, Speedlimit entered the discussion, flamed yours truly in a rather moronic fashion and banned me. Of course, he deleted his posts, along with mine that addressed the vendors bullshit in droves.
Speedlimit and I have a history. We exchanged several PMs, initiated by him, where he tried insulting me and throwing his weight around. When that didn't work out as seemingly hoped, he banned me - that was the first time. Clearly, the guy is an insecure wimp with balls the size of cashews.
Yesterday, he took the opportunity to get his revenge and deleted his posts that painted him as an imbecile of Herculean proportions, banning me once more.
I have no problem taking responsibility for my actions, but I loathe the abuse of power. I invited him to post his objections publicly and allowing me to respond, but he chose the cowardly, dishonest route. I wonder how many times a day he needs to be watered.
The moral of the story - it's foolish to take EvoM seriously, when its administration is composed of fools who use their standing to modify the integrity of information.
