A curmudgeonly request.
In response to private email ...
I in no way would wish to inhibit technical debate in this forum. Indeed, far
from it - I have learnt more about Audi I5 engine management right here than
anyone else around me would be in a position to teach.
I've grumbled about one or two posts - some that contained a great deal of
apparently unformatted repost, and some that were in perhaps immoderate
Please don't stop on my account - there's no way I'm important enough.
But I'm not going to read any posts that contain apparently frivolous reposts
or 'robust' put-downs of other list members. Anyone who's been outside and
bolted something onto a car has advanced the state of our knowledge - the more
we hear about (and debate) their successes and failures, the more we will be
able to imitate the former and avoid the latter.
I was with someone today who has a MAJOR wallet hole that would have been
avoided if they had only read some of the wisdom here. It's a chastening
experience to listen to someone relate a story and, while they're talking, to
think: "You're a complete fool". Then to realise, without the list, I would
have thought _EXACTLY_ the same - and did, a year ago.
