Well maybe so. Just for a minute let’s take a look at the situation to see exactly what happened here.

I asked a question.
Nobody answered the question.
Then I researched to find the answer.
This method upset Mr. Line.
There’s definitely a problem there.

Now usually I would tell him to go stick his finger up his butt and screw off. This time I decided to act in a reasonable manner and answer his question hoping that would be the end of it. Maybe, according to your logic it seems things were okay for Liner to act miserably, maybe I should have done the same thing? Well I decided not to and we see how that worked out. Oh well!

Problem is Root, you act reasonable some of the time, and just when some of us begin to accept that, you change like a chameleon and act like one of those kids in these threads.
So now most folks just treat you like they do as they never know what to expect, and they just expect the worst.
You really should think about the way you treat others before getting upset about how they treat you.
Just saying.

Well maybe so. Looking over the way this was handled by Mr. Liner it seems as he was the one that was out of line and IMO there should be no excuses for his miserable behavior. I handled myself correctly.

Facts only...

At least the Toyota Prius is a hybrid with a market...

and the obamamobile is just a gasoline powered electric golf cart with any.

Too Funny.

The inexperienced Investors don't have a clue as to how close Gov Motors is to the bankruptcy courts.

plus Outside of Europe the domestics have no market...

also GM’s “Automotive” Gross Margin actually declined from 12.4% in 2011 to 6.7% in 2012.

Too Funny.

Most of these recalls are simply due to building to fast.

Oh come off it you windbag. You really think your inane, stupid little posts add anything to this site?
"Oh! I'm soooo happy the Volt is doing well!
Oh! Was your Prius under a recall when you sold it?
Oh! I'm soooo happy the Volt is doing well!
Are you SURE your Prius wasn't under a recall when you sold it? That's important for me to know that. I couldn't sleep all night worrying about that.
Did I mention that I'm soooo happy the Volt is doing well?"

Get the picture? Of course you don't.

Root claims he does what he does to level the playing field away from all the Volt and GM haters.(Are there really that many)
Says Root:"Too many immature people saying bad things about Volt, etc., so I throw those posts in to change the tone".
But essentially, all Root accomplishes is to (a) Do exactly what he preaches against; and (b) Make a fool of himself.
That said, if he chooses in this way to be the laughing stock of these forums, what`s the harm.
Do you think people don`t know what`s going on, or really care much.
Don`t take it so seriously Liner---it`s really nothing to be concerned about.

So what`s all this fuss about Toyota recalls.
Has anybody seen what`s just happened at Ford.
Recalls are the rule these days for all automakers, not just Toyota.
What`s the big deal anyway.
And why do we only hear about one automaker all the time.

I wanted Liner to act responsibly and he failed (windbag) to express his point in a respectable manner. Oh well

Oh please stop it and practice what you preach (fool). That was absolutely uncalled for. Liner acted irresponsibly. He knows it and that’s why he lurched into his saving face mode and started pointing fingers.
