"Research shows that those who constantly see hate in others are usually the ones whose lives are full of the same"
The word "hater" is very common in today's English slang. From reading some of the posts here, I think one could use that word to describe some of the silliness.

Please excuse another off topic post.

Perhaps it's time to say something about how we're constantly bombarded here with self serving boasts about "my house paid for, I'm debt free, Envy me, Retired at 50", blah, blah, blah..

Such accomplishments are indeed noteable, but repeating this so frequently indicates something to hide, and it can often be a sign of insecurity.

When it happens so frequently one wonders why.

Most who have accomplished the same or more are quite comfortable with it and aren't compelled to boast to others.

You're absolutely right about it being a fairly common word.
And also about the silliness here.

(There's an abundance of silliness, but not a lot of "hate" that I can see)

But when that sentiment is repeated and repeated and repeated by one person, it's a clear indication that particular someone has a lot of hate somewhere in his life--imagined and otherwise.

I used the term "Hater Hater" a while back.

Definition of a "Hater Hater" is: "Someone who hates others he sees as haters"

I think this terminology applies.

Key words are "someone he sees as...."

The apple didn't fall far from your tree. Sounds like your son is a bigger miser than you! Instead of going home to his family he hangs out at the library just to mooch free electricity.

What's the matter dolt? Can't get away from the pump?

And by the way, my son has to study constantly for his job. He is lead systems engineer at his work.

FYI, technology changes constantly in that field. That's why he has to study. That's why he lives where he lives. Makes my house look teenie tiny.

I'm sure the hater is going to tell me how spiteful I am now.

I think I held back pretty good considering how the dolt took a personal swipe at my family. Of course, the hater doesn't care about that. My family is fair game to him.

That's called letting your dogs do your dirty work.

He's going to remind me how others took swipes at him but I remained silent. Perhaps I remain silent because it's none of my business. Unlike him, I don't consider myself the moderator here.

Try remaining silent, hater. When I defend my family, keep your trap shut.

And I notice that you don't comment on the Tesla owner or the Leaf owners that were plugged in. Only my son. Is it because he is my son or is it because he has a Volt?

Either way, you are a hater making negative comments constantly.

The hater is going to point out how negative I am. I am willing to bet that you can go back 60 pages and I have posted more positive comments than the dolt, by a long shot.

Hint. The dolt has never posted a positive comment here. Ever. The hater doesn't mind that. In fact, he has patted him on the head several times for his spiteful comments. That's called being hypocritical.

For hose who seek status by boring us repeatedly with their "accomplishments"... ..
There are 35 employees at my second business.
It's a high tech industrial solution provider involving custom software development, robotics, vision system design and manufacturing operation.
We've been in business, growing from just 2 employees since 1992.
One son and a daughter-in-law now run it. I go in when I feel like it, and also do some occasional customer support work from time to time.
Semi retirement is delightful--I believe man was never intended to be a couch potato.
Auto manufacturers in Canada, US, and Mexico are 60 percent of our customers.
Two employees are systems engineers, 6 are software developers, 4 are electrical and mechanical design engineers, 8 are field integrators, 2 are project managers, and the rest are support staff with varying responsibilities.
Gross revenue last year was just under $24mm.

There, For the benefit of the boastful participants in this forum, is a brief overview of what I think is a modest success in life.
A story which won't be repeated, because I deplore boastfulness!
Especially, like some do here, when it's intent is to demean others.

His name was never mentioned subsequently.
Funny how he identified with what I've posted.
Must be a guilt complex there.

Oh my ... a Tesla owner kissing a Volt owner's arss.
And by the way, your tesla is a pimple. Your is the match box version, right?
The apple didn't fall far the the tree in the iluvmyVolt family. His son is so cheap he hangs out at the library mooching free electricity, instead of going home to spend time with the wife and kids.

Yes maybe so. On the other hand we have a child posting silly things about a car they obviously donít care for. Thatís called being a hater. The end result is called getting trolled. Love Voltís only problem is he takes the hook, the circle continues. He has great point of view and you may not agree with him, but heís accurate. Really, the Volt is an amazing piece of technology.

I agree completely about the Volt.
It's a revolutionary design and has set the bar for the other guys.
I've said as much--sincerely--a couple of dozen times.
But the truth is, Volt isn't selling all that well, and the competition has really moved into the segment.
I believe the car buyers out there aren't quite ready for this type of product just yet.
I've always tried to look at pros and cons of the product, but "Mr. Wonderful" interprets that as an insult and keeps coming back with his "hater" bullsh-t.
I don't "hate" anything nor anybody--it's just not in my vocabulary, but it sure is in his.

I also agree LMV has posted some quite interesting info.
But it quickly becomes dull, uninteresting, and frankly annoying after seeing the same info repeated time after time after time.
It's also a bit much when we see his "hero" stories about all his life's "accomplishments" constantly being bragged at others by way of reinforcing his self image.
Really, the guy does come across as a miserly, cranky, and insecure old man with an inferiority complex.
Sorry, but that's the way I see it.

This is what he said previously:

"That said, you won't see any more talk about you from now on from me."

Page 201, post # 4159.

The second post didn't mention calling me out by name. He said that he was done talking about me, period. Which one is it hater? You are proving yourself weak. First you said you would not talk about me anymore and then you talked about me the very next post.

And now you have changed your statement? Now you can talk about me as long as you don't mention my name?

Which is it?

One more time hater:

"That said, you won't see any more talk about you from now on from me."
