    I feel your pain. My peeve is in E-bay they do the same thing. Looking for special little parts for my avatar car and is sister the Country Sedan. I type them in and get 23,000 responses. Only about 250 are actually on those cars. It reads “ will fit xxxx”
    Those “ tags” are ruining the ability to actually look for the parts a fellow needs or wants.

    a couple hundred years ago, a smart newspaper man said, hey, why dont we put the horses in this column, and the buggys in this other column. great idea, and its worked well until the greedy now days that are"outside the box" by thinking if they list a sailboat in the corvette column, some guy looking at corvettes will think "gosh, maybe i should buy a boat instead. its bullshit. like bones said, you have to weed thru all the unrelated shit to find what you are lookin for

    I hate threads on forums that seem to run forever.
    They get that long that unless you are following them daily, it is just too time consuming to plough thru them to reap any reward.
    Now that ain't all long threads, but boy some just ramble on or the other is when the thread creator just seems to need attention way longer than the subject requires...
    There is one forum I visit and the guy does great work and is interesting, but the original topic he started off with has way pasted being discussed and he just keeps adding new work and comments.
    I suggested to him that due to the great info he posts, that he should consider a new thread for each topic which would make it so much better for folks to gain knowledge and easier to search up stuff later on.
    But no he wont hear of it...

    Yes, the "whats this car worth entries" are pretty annoying.

    Rims. Right up in to the early '30's cars had spare rims.
    They fastened to the wheel, spokes, hub.

    Bones, just hit the “ advanced search”, when it comes up, it gives you choices of words to search by or ignore. I always ignore “ fits”, it will cut out all the China fits all crap.

    back on bones's ebay thing, i usually click the box for"used parts. that wipes out most of the chinese fitsall, but the greedy have to fuck that up too and list their new crap as used. and another peave, actually new peave is folks who will read a thread this long about "bitching" and then post that they dont like threads about bitching!!! i think we're havin a little fun venting, my take anyway

  24. Agree on the multiple pics of the same - what like we didn't see it the first time ? Maybe it was the price we just passed it by...........

    My biggest peeve is unrelated comments

    And pickles, those are evil. I didn’t order a chicken and pickle sandwich. You can not unpickel food

    Guaranteed that hell will be wall to wall pickles

    I don't like it when driving along and the person in front of me stops to give right of way to someone pulling out of a parking lot. It's not being corteus, it's disrupting the normal flow of traffic. And rubber parts that rot after a couple weeks.

    I don't like ads that don't accurately describe the condition of older vehicles. :mad:

    Never mind. We wouldn't have any ads if that was ever enforced. :oops:
