I am a bit dissapointed in you guys...Yeah,he DID go overboard,and shouldn't have attacked the way he did,and got himself banned--no argument there!.. I had several "second thoughts" about posting my thoughts on this subject,but here goes..at the risk of being flamed or banned.. Did anyone stop to think maybe he was driven to the breaking point before he snapped??...you've all read his posts about his crappy life,and his displeasure with the way he's been living..I cant say my life is any better,or even that much different at this point and time..I don't blame him for having a bad and negative attitude..I know just how he feels..your life sucks all day long,people piss you off to no end...and then you go online,hoping to get away from it,and get the same treatment from folks on the web.. I can vouch for him that a few posters always had to "zing" him with a sarcastic answer,or antagonize him about his spelling,or poke fun at his life situation..I have the same problem here myself with a few of you--look at some of the posts I've answered..you'll see what I mean.. I agree with Randy when he said some here seem to be immune to being reprimanded for insults and crass remarks..I wont name names,you know who you are.. Maybe he does have problems with depression..did anyone think maybe he IS on an anti-depressant,which often CAUSE people to flip out like the way he did?...I suffer from it too,and one reason I haven't snapped is I refused the Prozac and Zoloft they are so quick to prescribe now..I had some very bad episodes after taking that stuff..I find a few stiff drinks work better for me..he probably needs a good friend more than anything..guess he didn't find any here... Randy knew a lot about GM trucks,and I will miss his posts,even if they often sounded like the ranting of a madman...and I won't forget the roasting he got after he was banned..(even if it was well deserved)..I thought adults didn't act that way--you guys went too far in my opinion...... I hope I am not subjected to that kind of abuse--though I have already had a few disturbing posts with rude comments made to me here....I get enough of it at home and in daily life..dont need to get it on the web too! So go ahead and flame me if you must.. I am not defending his outbursts,or his rants of late--maybe Randy was not the most gifted conversationalist here,and had a short fuse and bad manners..but he IS a human being...too bad he wasn't treated like one..I don't know him,never even sent him a PM..but I can see his point of veiw on lots of things,and cant say I disagree... I am especially dissapointed that of all people,a police officer was among the ones who seemed to get the most pleasure out of kicking him after being banned.(someone who should know better,and not act like that)--that makes me lose respect for cops when I see that kind of behavior(not that I had much to begin with,after getting to know a few of them ).......If someone needs to be banned,so be it..but dont tar and feather them on the worldwide web for chrissakes....just let them go quietly...no need to crucify them... Maybe I should just stick to posting in the garage..the lounge is getting ugly here lately...and I wasted 2 hours reading all this soap opera drama..
