I posted the original message in this thread and want to make it clear that
you are correct regarding the following:
1. I wasn't issuing a call to all BMW/MBZ/whatever pilots that they were
gonna get their butts whipped. I was simply telling a story where a
particular BMW driver got put in their place; and
2. I wasn't trolling for a contest ... it was the other person who was
looking for the testo-boost.
Hope that clears things up.
