Makes sense, about the readers, MoToR - I guess that is why every so often, some loser jumps in like he knows us all, and knows everything that is wrong with us and the board, and he will set us straight and be The Board Savior, ROFL....
As for enjoying it, I've got to admit, it does get amusing....having survived the best that You and Boobie could throw at me.....it's all pretty lame after that, LOL - what don't kill you makes you stronger out here, *giggle* and, I don't take it personally - like I've said - I think the attacks say more about the poster than me....
I will admit, I was Sorely Tempted to trot out some of MoToR's Classic Baiting for M, ROFL.....but in all seriousness, I don't think he'd be up to it, he seems to have a fragile side & takes things awfully seriously....I wouldn't want to be responsible for a thread saying, "M hangs himself in the basement after being told by Joanie, 'No matter how hard you try, you will never be me' "......ROFLMAO....
Well, who would'a thunk You and I would ever be hanging out together on a thread, talking like the couple of old war horses that we are, LOL....maybe things will get back to their previous good place, before we got each other in a death rip and both survived, LOL - heck, I've even visited NN a few times in the last few weeks - no one is ever there, tho' - sounds like it's picked up, maybe I'll come hang out for a race sometime.....
You have no idea how many non posters read. Many show up on NN and speak some here and there. Chainsaw is one for sure. I can guarantee he reads a lot out here and you hardly see him post much.
There are people here who just because you post it they will read it. I have them you have them others have them too. There are over 300,000 teams in play. Yes that may mean only just over 100,000 people play but they all travel by here to get to their leagues. We took NN from around 100 to almost 400 people in one year. Some is through face book but most of it was done through here. NN is our Bar and Grill now. Many of us gather and laugh and joke and talk about yahoo post or Nascar or the girl in the bikini we saw that day. LoL. I learned that last year when we, yes we tried our best to destroy this board. We split this board in 3, those on my side, those on your side and those that just wanted us to get along and quit b!tch!n' most of those were both our friends. When I say followers I don't mean people who will do what ever we say. I just mean people who read what we say.
You get targeted for 3 reasons, You never shut up, just like me. LoL. We post more then anyone. 2 your quirks drive people nuts, just like me. LoL. And last but not least your a woman in a mostly mans world out here. My third is I try to rub some people wrong. Some people just need to be told how stupid they look. I'm just the guy for that job, I have so much armor that I can afford to take a bullet or 2 or 20. LoL. After all I am my own imp this year. If you haven't noticed. It worked out great too. I think I lost more id's from lack of remembering them then yahoo taking them. The biggest reason is the 1st. We post constantly. that for some reason makes us a big target. When my friends tell me to shut up I might listen, Just as you would, until then we know what comes with each year. The sick part is I look forward to it. LoL. I think you are starting to like it too. LoL.
WOWSER, MoToR - it's not often I'm speechless....and I almost am now.....Almost, ROFL...
It's not so often I get to see things like this through your eyes, and it is really eye-opening.
Hee-hee, guess I'm so used to the negative feedback, and personal attacks, that seeing things as you just put them is....very new and cool...thank You, very...new....among other things.
I guess one thing I am curious about. You talk about "followings". Yes, you may have a "following", I think - but I just think I have friends. Oh, yes - and trolls, too - like we all do, but mostly, I am just here because I have friends here..... and ALSO because I really enjoy discussing NASCAR with the others whom I like a lot but only come around once in awhile - like Corey - whom I wish was here more.....but, he and others like him are here for the Quality NASCAR/discussions, which makes it all the better when they pop around....
Anyway, some people say, "groupies" and "posse" and all - and I don't see it at all like that. I am just part of a group of friends here, and we treat each other like friends and defend each other like freinds when one is attacked, out of fairness and kindness....perhaps I am just attacked more than others, because I am a fairly "constant," and out-spoken, LOL...but certainly, not a "following". Which is why I "dream" of a league where just Us Regs hang out, LOL....altho', I would miss the Coreys.....
I think that you think that more people read this board than I do....and maybe, more do...but I think only about ten-twelve people - on average - read the board on any given day.....
So, I dunno, no way to wrap it up without straining my brain when I should be crawling between the sheets....
But, wow - that was Very New & Interesting.....
I'm sorry this is going to sound weird but reading your post and looking at your pic just makes me bust up. I love that pic and you saying looking in a mirror just triggers uncontrollable laughing from me. i just picture that pic looking in a mirror. LMAO!!
Ok not that i laughed through the 1st part I think I can speak clearly. Joanie may dig info as I do and many out here. she keeps us from having to do it ourselves or forces us to find info to debunk hers. either way she isn't trying to piss anyone off. she is only trying to help some. Me and her don't see eye to eye on some things, a lot of things, but going after her with out something to debunk what she is saying isn't going to get it done. if she says robby gordon is the best multi purpose driver then attack it. but bring you bookmarks with you. she has a hard drive just for her bookmarks i think. LoL. don't fault a girl or a guy for having sources. she is here because she has a following. it sounds like a big headed thing to say but it is why i am here. If these guys didn't like me and didn't laugh at my jokes or didn't like what I say (oh wait on that part I don't care so much lol) I wouldn't be here. Yes she spends a lot of time on here. As do I and many others. We have our little bar and grill here where friends all meet. the drinks are cheap and what ever you want is here to drink. if not you better get to the store. we don't have to worry about DUI's and we learn or laugh and even have fights but in the end we know next year she will be here as I will be. We hope you will be too. each of us out here doesn't like someone, there are those who don't like you. they just don't say it. you and mojo came out around the same time and she liked Mojo I liked you. I see mojo (Crankshaft) is taking a new approach. argue against what she says if you feel you must whether it is her view or the writers view from something she posts, but why make it personal. Believe me attacking her on here is just a guy picking on a girl, unless you argue decent with her.
so I was in a bloviating mood and this is what came out. I do hope you will be back next year and offer you an invite to NN to see why so many of us are tight. we all have the one place we go and hang together. We run the show so we never have issues. a troll pops up we put them in time out. if they are a true pest we kick them out. luckily that has only been a few rare cases. we are not power mad we just wont let some of the BS that goes on here be there. you will even find dale is a different person on there then here. so join us at http://nascarnation.us/ be my guest and treat people as you want to be treated, and you will see we are all just fans of a sport. Crackshaft if your true about the attitude change we see, I will offer this out to you too. Lord knows I don't want you to feel left out. LoL. Thing are different there. because someone actually runs the show unlike here.
Ah, NOW you're getting the spirit! Think of a MoToR's Bar & Grille that never burns down, where the beer and company always flows....sure, we'll have a few bar-fights, but we've survived them before, we will again, and this time, it'd be Just The Gang to witness them - no drunken sailors (or random losers) jumping in (NO REFERENCE to our "Down-Under Friend", there - in fact, he should join the crew!).
Hee-hee, we should try to get a Bar & Grille going here soon, some night when we'll all be around, before the season ends....
