RE: pms have gone too far

I, for one, think teky knows what he's talking about. Then again, what do I know? I was just a mechanic in one of Europe's oldest and most respected Mercedes shops.... and you can't learn what mechanics know by driving one for 7 or eight years.

I'm only on my 4th benz so I guess I don't know anything about keeping them in running shape.[:p]

RE: pms have gone too far

i would like to thank you for you support there mate it means a lot to me ( it puts the C back into Confidence for me ), i had to retire early from the family business "my garage" for private reasons so i now have a manager in there running it for me and now and then i like to get my hands dirty in there and cars are my hobby, when people attack me like that i start to wonder if I'm loosing the touch and my confidence is hit hard so i end up withdrawing but i fight back and it makes me think twice before i make an answer so it keeps the gray matter working, so in one way they are really doing me a favor by keeping me on my toes, so once again I'm in your debt and thank all for their support you are outstanding and considerate people, the pests well we deal with them in our own ways

RE: pms have gone too far

regardless of the situation, it is inappropriate the publish a pm for everyone the see. the reason for the pm is an exchange in a non-public medium. you have defeated the purpose of the pm. i doubt anyone would send you any pm from now on.

address complaints to the adminstrators, not the public.

RE: pms have gone too far

whoa whoa whoa!!! PM's are for private use, BUT you also shouldnt use them to insult people or put them down. Im with TEKY on this one, PM's like those have gone WAY TO FAR!! THIS IS A FORUM TO HELP PEOPLE WITH THEIR BENZ, NOT TO SEE WHAT PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THEM!!

[:(!] If you need help with your benz post something. BUT DONT ATTACK THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO HELP!! RIDICULOUS!! ANY HELP THAT WE CAN GET ON OUR QUESTIONS HERE REALLY HELPFUL, DONT BITE THE HAND THAT IS TRYING TO HELP YOU!!!

TEKY you are a tremendous help to many in this forum, dont let one or two rotten apples pull you down!

If we have disagreements or debates then we agree to disagree. We are all mature adults in here and we should atleast act like it!

RE: pms have gone too far

FWIW all the PMs I’ve received have been very positive. They have been used for what they were intended: private message. PMs are for talking about off-topic things, sending someone an eBay link for cool rims with out letting the whole world know [8D], sending phone numbers, email addresses, etc.

I swear to God, guys read the posts with that 1stcarfinder kid and toaster guy....very similar writing styles, that guy is him, teky, he uses many different names. Bet you a buck that he's a low number poster.

I don't see the need to join with other names...
…because they’re criminals. For the same reason criminals use an alias or ‘AKA’ so authorities have a problem identifying them as they commit crimes. Most forums will ban a member for life for registering with more than one ID.
