Root, your Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) situation is worsening.
The irrational behaviour you exhibit has become even more irrational.
This can only lead to further and more serious difficulties in your life.
Seriously, you need help, and should take positive remedial action ASAP.
Please don't turn your back on this sincere and well meaning advice.

I bet our unrooted friend washes his hands two hundred times a day and has ten dead bolts on his door that he checks twenty times before he goes to bed.Then he brushes his teeth ten times with a new tooth brush each time.He is one sick dimented bastard!!!!

Root has a problem, no doubt about that.
It's not his fault however, and being affected by this disorder is beyond his control.
Therefore, we shouldn't be too hasty in judging or criticizing him.
Nevertheless, the solutions to Root's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder issues are certainly within his control.
Root needs to take control of his problem if he ever hopes to get better.
He has been given good advice in a genuine effort to assist him.
Let's give him a chance, and not be too critical of him.
He can't help the way he is, but he can do something about it--if he so chooses.

Sorry I havenít been able to entertain your trolling fetish today. Iíve been working on the boat. Now itís time to head out on the lake. Take care and Iím impressed at how the Volt is being perceived in the marketplace. Keep everything in order while Iím away. Back later

Strange as it may seem to you, I'm also impressed at how well Volt is being perceived in the marketplace.
The difference between you and I however, is that I don't post my sentiments hundreds of times.
Hope you enjoyed the boat on Cross Lake, altho' that lake isn't all that big, and weather wasn't good.
The advice re your OCD was sincere.
Posting the same thing as many times as you do is clearly a symptom.
You need to come to grips with it and take remedial action.
Deal with it, don't ignore it.

This has to be one of the strangest car websites I have ever come across. There's a guy that loves Volt way to much, a Canadian Dr. and some kid that writes on the level of a middle school misfit. Is this the usual?

Is this the usual, you ask.
The answer is "absolutely"!!!
Bizarre is the rule, not the exception.
Mature discussion is the exception.
But thanks for asking.

It was actually Caddo Lake. Search it and Iím sure you would appreciate its beauty. The weather was absolutely rotten. A very fine mist fell continuously that coated the glasses ever so eloquently just enough to impede vision. Water was muddy and hydrilla remnants scattered the launch. The fish were not biting. Itís a bit early for the spawn on that lake. Strange you mention Cross Lake that is where I live. Yes we have alligators. Today the white pelicans are on the lake, thousands of them. They come up for about two weeks at this time of year.

I will post pictures on my website in the spring and summer. You and others will be free to look over the mystic absolute sheer beauty.

That's all very nice.
So you live on a lake, but what has that got to do with Volt, or Prius, or your Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
FWIW, we live on a lake too (lake St. Clair), plus we have a cottage on a lake in North Ontario,and a Condo on the ocean in Puerto Vallarta--plus 2 boats (40 ft. Hunter, and a 22ft Starcraft Fishmaster).
But we don't go around trying to impress others with these things.
Why do you deem it necessary?

Well ya see his lake story is jiving with his owning a boat story which inturn jives with his owning a volt.He's insecure so he's trying to impress us with all that he "Suppoedly" owns.Just humor him cause he's a lose cannon!!!!

I was trying to be friendly with you and not trying to impress you. Many people from other places donít know about the beauty of the lakes in this area. Your remark was rude.

I'm sure the area you live in has much in the way of nice.
However, if you deem my remarks--anywhere in this thread or in any others---as "rude", then you really do have a problem and a serious one indeed.
That said, you certainly have an odd way of "trying to be friendly".
Why don't you simply do what's right, and make amends for all the really senseless crap you've thrown my way.
That would have made a whole lot more sense.

You implying that I was trying to impress you and the OBC comment was rude. Maybe you donít see it like that. This behavior is usual from you. ďMake amends and all is goodĒ until you find something else derogatory to say. I would never say a thing negative about you or any car company if you acted in the same manner.
