You're right, it was kindly ignored.

Are you referring to this thread? "Engine over heating or Vacuum hose disconnected??"

In that thread you posted an incoherent, run-on paragraph with no capitalization, and incorrect or missing punctuation. By the time I figured out what the hell you were talking about the bell rang and my time to help you was up. Your teachers were right kid, you should have paid attention in class.

Sorry for that.

No problem. 90% of us here can probably recommend what course to take if you need LEDs for your corona rings, perhaps only 15% or less can diagnose overheating engines.

Now how many of those do you think can give you a diagnosis sight unseen?

Kids these days for sure... "me me me me me".


Actually I'd like to thank some of the veteran posters. I may not post much but I sure read a lot. Your research and patience has saved me a ton of money on my cars.

The E60 forums have been picking up a few of these guys too. Sounds like its time to change the captcha from copying random words to solving basic math problems

Not sure what all those folks are full of, but just looked at his threads. "Please help",
"Suggestions", "I need info", "Don't mean to be a pain", "Where to buy". Certainly seemed to be all about him. I feel bad..........

fdriller9 will try to help nearly anyone, even those who should be declared brain dead imo. CALWATERBOY will drop you with a double-barreled kick to the groin if your question is stupid. Since you couldn't even clear these bare minimums, please move on and don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you.

Don't assume that the members that have your answer sit at their computers all day waiting for someone to post a problem. Sure it would be nice to get an immediate answer, but most of us have other commitments that keep us away from the forums. Patience my friend or go visit your favorite repair shop. Just be ready to wait as the good ones will not be able to get your car in immediately! I know 2 excellent independents that only service German brands close to me that stay booked 5 days out.

The rambling 24-hour old post (which has several responses yesterday) :

The only 2 posts this guy did that had no responses were ones that didn't really need a response. "Rims for Summer!" and "Website for Parts".

I think we handled this (former) member well, giving good advice. He didn't really give anything back, that I can see anyway.
