How's that for a click bait title? I'm totally trying to get this down so any pointers are great. He did write about what I felt was TCL. Also if he's reads criticism he'll probably read this because he'll search his name. So Jack, I have something to tell you you, something you can learn as you like to say... The proper term for what you are talking about is called "confirmation bias". Just so you know for some of your scathing upcoming articles that keep us on the edge of our seats or beds or toilets, depending on where you read this site at. BTW the new Mustang is ugly as hell.

I found a quarter-mile time. Then another. Then I found a discussion about how the CB1100's speed limiter cuts in before the end of the quarter mile. So I started calculating what the "potential" quarter-mile might be. I didn't like some of the times gotten by various magazines, so I searched until I found a time and a trap speed that I liked, then I started calculating further, and then...

My God, I've become That Forum Guy.
In the few years since I started writing for Road & Track, I've made it a point to read as much criticism and commentary on my articles as possible. It's my belief that you can learn a lot from your critics, even if they say things that seem deliberately hurtful or just plain stupid.

Wonder if Jack had you in mind when he thought about the prototypical That Forum Guy.
He may have, except I don't read car magazines. Who am I lying to, I don't read. I don't know how. But thanks for pointing out that I don't know how to read to everyone, and then making fun of me for it. You're probably going to hell for picking on someone like me, I'm just saying. I hope your god is more forgiving than mine, because mine already has a lightning bolt ready for your racist ass.

There is no god and you're an idiot for calling out someone for being a racist with no evidence in their post.

Lock this post up mods, before this turns into another stupidity **** storm.

There's no way we're the only car forum that thinks he should look for new employment.

Here I was thinking that Jack had written something very similar to this not long ago. Then I look at the article and realize it is from Nov. 2015 and OP has no clue what "latest article" means. :banghead:

He's got a point. I don't think he is referring to any one person or forum. Just look at any NSX, Audi or BMW thread. Don't even get me started when someone's favorite car loses a comparison test, then it turns to chip XYZ car and its faster(stock vs modded), the winner had cheater tires, used vs new etc...

Remember the sh#tstorm this one caused;

Yes I am guilty, The B5 S4 is the greatest most reliable car ever!

I wonder if Jack still lurks around here under another username. I was curious as to when his last post under Viergang Fuchs was, so I looked it up. It was March 2008.
