Why the [darn] are we all expected to agree, all the time?

    You know, I hope everyone has noticed that I have toned my attitude down significantly recently. If not, oh well, but I've lost the motivation to get in arguements with people a lot lately as it's just not worth it at times.

    I'm actually pissed though today. Why are we all expected to agree about everything, all the time around here? Why is it that if someone doesn't agree with you, they're automatically wrong?

    Is it impossible that we just have differing opinions and neither of us is wrong?

    I'm just so tired of this attitude around here. I often wonder how we ever declared our independance from England if everyone thought that a new idea was just so wrong.

    I just don't get it sometimes, you either agree with the majority or you're automatically wrong and there is no in-between.

    Typically later on people come to reality and realize that the person wasn't wrong anyway.

    I just don't get it at all. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    What are we agreeing on? Most of the time if alot of people don't agree with another person, they are either not smart, or alot smarter than the people disagreeing with them /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    No one has a problem with you presenting your opinion. It's the way you do it that offends people.

    I believe that the main reason feuds erupt is because of the WAY people tend to disagree around here....... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    You'll notice that respectful and mature opinions are rarely met with anything other than well-voiced replies, both for and against. It's the pricks that get flamed. I'm not trying to imply anything with this reply, only pointing out where some of this perceived "attitude" you speak of.

    Oh, kinda like the crowd that thinks unless You have a 60 up front then your Blazer/Truck is a worthless piece of crap or that your just not cool enough. I have been on this site since the get go back when it felt like a family. I remember back when all You needed was a fullsize GM truck and You were made to feel welcome. Now all You need is a dana 60 up front and chop up your Blazer/Truck untill it no longer resembles one or just beat the hell out of it to be elevated to the "In Crowd", and to be a so called expert.
    Fawwk all that crap I will build My truck how I choose to do so, and if it's not cool enough then to bad. I will also not sit here with a brown nose kissing ass and praising someone else's ride just cause they got all the so called cool stuff on it. I get sick and tired of all this fawwking truggy bullshit around here. This is supposed to be a "Fullsize GM Site". If I wanted to hear about buggys and crap I would have joined Pirate.


    Ok.... That was My rant that I have kept in for a while.

    EXACTLY!!!! I wish I'd been able to make it come out that way. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I whole heartedly agree with you. I miss the way this site used to be.

    And in reference to why we have to agree all the time, I wasn't just referring to me, it's everybody. If your rig isn't a K5 with a 4" pair of tuff countrys, an ORD flip out back, a 4 speed, 205, 1 ton gear, 5.13s, hacked all to hell, it's a piece of crap around here any more.

    I fawkin hate that attidue, it's such bullshit, and it's so common around here anymore it makes me sick.

    Exactly...........
    You know I like what Im doing with My current Blazer, but for about the last year I have really wanted a stock Blazer. Oh and I dont mean just any stock Blazer. I want a 78-79 cause I do not like full tops or 81-91 front ends and I want one with fulltime 4x4 carpet and a lowered rear floorboard. I just want one that is comfortable to drive and is basic and where I dont have to get out to lock the hubs. Just a cushy ride.

    [/ QUOTE ] You're missing the point. The point is there has been alot of attacks by members on members because someone doesn't agree with another persons point of view. Some people are better at wording things then others. You don't have too use the word %$^%&* too call someone a %$^%&*.

    I guess I really havent noticed the "gotta be like me" opinions much here. For the most part, people here still seem helpful even if your not one of the tricked out 1-tonners. I have the basic mods mades to my truck and will run the 10B til they blow-up, then ill think about changing things. I really dont give a [darn] what people think about me. Guess thats because im an old fart and went thru that stage many years ago. I do what I can afford and I also have other things I spend my money on.

    Even in some of the forums about Politics or Engine building etc there are lots of different opinions and thats a good thing. Most people want to be "accepted" and the way they do that is by being like everyone else.

    What pisses me off is the damm "Political Correctness" BS we have to listen to everyday in the Media, Government, and at work. If you rock the boat, your not correct or if you say something to someone thats not politically correct, its racist. Take the Bill Cosby remarks made earlier this year. If I said that, I would probably have been charged with racial remarks and a hate crime. What ever happened to Common [darn] sense and taking responsibility for your own actions and not blaming everything on someone else.

    Sorry..got off track....BTW, your truck isnt 10" high and runs 42 so I dont want to talk to you no more /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif


    Oh and by the way...if you dont like me being different....[darn] You, thats your problem /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    Exactly! Personally, i like my clean strait K5. Yeah, its a poser rig, but i have no problem with that. 2" body lift, 33" mall terrains, cowl induction hood, tube bumper with KC's, but its super clean, and i plan on keeping it that way. I didnt buy it to rockcrawl, i bought it to tow my toyota, and haul 5 people comfortably with all our gear in the back.

    But i digress. I think a lot of the problem with the everyone getting along has to do with "grudges". people will read into what other write and if they have a problem with what that person said, even if it was perfectly fine, they will jump down their throat. Sometimes it is justified, sometimes it is not. But they will do it anyway if they dont like the person who posted it.

    (If this makes no sense, i appoligize, its been a long day)
