Excuse my ignorance; how is this related to the slkworld?
.. .. ..because one of our long established members has decided to post it in the off topic section.
You have only been a member here a short time, and are probably more used to more antagonistic forums where people are often flaming each other, slagging each other off and generally use language that they wouldn't dream of using in face to face conversations.
SLKWorld prides itself on our welcoming, friendly attitude and the fact any person regardless of age, gender or persuasion is welcome to join and feel safe in reading or posting. We are primarily a car forum, but as in any usual conversation, we do not speak solely about cars.
Many members here are personal friends, and have met up socially either at car meetings or more generally, often across continents.
Like most things in life, you do not have to reply to every comment made. If you strongly disagree with something, and yet do not have a valid counter comment to make, then sometimes it's best to remain silent
