OK, wise guys, it's time for some respect...

I was working on Stef's car this afternoon (OK all friggin' day) and came across this admonition on the Saturn forum...

"I've noticed a disturbing increase in the number of members attacking other members, their cars, and Saturn. This type of activity will not be tolerated. It is against the rules of this board to post messages that are rude, inconsiderate, or that bash other members or Saturn. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but the off-the-cuff remarks that have been posted here lately are getting out of hand.

My primary goal as the administrator of this message board is to maintain a community where all owners, enthusiasts, and skeptics feel comfortable talking about their cars and ownership experiences - whether they are good or bad. However, a growing trend on this site involves a small group of members who, for a variety of reasons, have began posting rude or sarcastic messages that are insulting and offensive. No one should be forced to defend their Saturn purchase, or be made to feel that they made a poor decision by buying a Saturn. Any member who engages in this type of activity will have their account deactivated. The mudslinging - whether it targets another member, Saturn, or GM - has to stop."

Whooeee...hope he/she doesn't wander in here by mistake.

OK bitches, back to the normal dysfunctional party...

Wasn't me.. I also have a Suburban, PT Cruiser, Olds Alero and an 84 Chevy Cavalier convertible. So I wouldn't dream of bashing anyone's choice of cars. We all have to drive something.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest in the solar system. To name a shit car after that magnificent planet is a crime, let alone to have a website, that's just fucking sick !
The only poor decision was not naming that car the 'shit in a sock' with wheels!, like the ford 'probe' but I'll save that story for an funnel thread.
Are these saturn big sellers too folk just back from holidays in Borneo?.

Oh Vonny, this is a shit car. After spending countless blissful hours in and under the magnificent 123 and 124 chassis, not to mention my lovely 107, 115 and 126, I'm appalled but keep working without comment on this substandard appliance.

Fuck you asshole.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
