Featured Features Pet Peeve of Mine!!!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by lothiandon1940, Mar 12, 2019.

  1. Why do people feel compelled to post the same group of pictures in the classifieds 2 or 3 or 4 or more times?.....There's a truck for sale right now and the poster in his initial ad has posted the same group of full size pictures 5 (FIVE) times!...I won't mention the particular poster or truck, but really guys, it isn't going to help sell your car (or parts) by tying up tons of bandwidth with the same photos.:mad:

    I bet it's a mistake. I see it all the time here. Usually they apologize for the multiple pics.
  3. ...........I'm sure it's not intentional, at least I hope not, but geez, it's pretty easy to edit your post before or after you post it.

    Pet peeves...!?

    Calling items other than what they are.
    *A Harmonic Damper is not a balancer. Even the oh so very few, with counter weights. Their main objective in life is to "dampen" harmonic vibrations. They don't balance anything. The guy in the machine shop does that..!
    * You cannot bolt a "rim" to a car (well maybe a wide five wheel !). It needs to be the entire "wheel". What is the length of the car, axle to axle...the wheel base...not the rim base. Or how about a rim-well vs the wheel-well.

    Being redundant.
    *Front windshield. There's only one wind shield..! The back window is the back-glass in automotive glass terms.
    *Front grill. With a couple of exceptions (Corvair, Volks Wagon on this board), there's one grill. Other small grills are normally called other names.
    *Front hood. Need I say more.


    Oh yea, another out of MANY.
    Me, I motorcycles..! If everyone just "rides", who's doing the steering, the throttle control, the brakes..? SOMEONE'S got to in control.

    I can’t stand it when people offer me Tartar sauce with my shrimp. That’s just not right.

    I'd say some guys repost their adds simply because they aren't smart enough to find their old add and give it a bump or even know how to do it.
    The vast majority of sellers in the classifieds don't participate on the board and some never even check it as they are only members so they can advertise parts for free. If Ryan made a "must be an Alliance member to post classifieds the number of classifieds would drop to a handful a day as all the freeloaders would find somewhere else to freeload.
    On the other hand I have run into a lot of guys who only check the classifieds to see what is for sale and never participate on the board either.

    I'd have to say my pet HAMB peeve is the guys who ask the same question that has been asked and answered a hundred times rather than doing a thirty second search. Then throw in the guys who ask the question here on the Hamb on the 57.72 Chevy truck board and on Face Book in two groups hoping for the answer they want rather than the right answer that they got here in the first place.

  23. ..........I hear what you're saying and I agree wholeheartedly, but this particular ad wasn't a repost (although he did bump it today), it was the original ad that had the same group of pictures 5 times!!!! I'm no genius and certainly not a tech savvy guy, but I gotta believe that bandwidth costs money.

    On a side note is the annoying practice of quoting entire posts, pictures and all, several times in responses. Pick and choose, please. We read the post , we saw the pictures, we can scroll back to see them again....
  26. .......So true.

    for those killin time, or need cheap entertainment, go to mpls craigslist, type in 1926 ford. there are about 220 listings, and only 5 are model t's. the rest are some used car lot. i looked at his ad to see why it shows up in a search, and you should see the crap he put at the bottom for search links. it looks like he pulled a paragraph from every book ever written and pasted them all together. you cant read it because its all different topics, and it goes...and goes...and goes on for about three pages like to get every word in the dictionary to show in any kind of a search. its amazing, i have never seen such abuse. i cant believe that falls in the rules ok. dont mean to hyjack the thread, but really, those ads will blow your mind
