How convenient, you fail to debate period as referenced in your last post and again imply blame. Trust me son, you aren't fooling anyone nor is your presence here asked to cease. Now I will tell you what would be nice and that is a bit of transparency on your part. My thought on your presence here, imo, is to change the subject at hand and disrupt the conversation. That is in fact the very definition of the word you like to label others with, that being troll. It seems very clear, especially after intentionally engaging you the last three days. While not trying to be mean, it seems as if you just need a response and really don't care to debate anything that doesn't suit you.

Face it Root, my Volt fetish gets your motor running. Fetish is just another one of my sexual ploys to excite.
Whenever I find myself behind in a debate (which happens so often!), I immediately put my panties on and resort to deflection tactics..

Deflection Tactic No. 1---play the "you're gay" card. I might be gay but thatís my free will.
Deflection Tactic No. 2---insult Americans. If you are a gay American I might be interested.
Deflection Tactic No. 3---eating Dog stories. I eat dogs and its my business.
Deflection Tactic No. 4---vulgar fantasies about Toronto that get me excited
Deflection Tactic No. 5---the Faux Username/ ISP charade. Yes I do.
Deflection Tactic No. 6---mimic the other guy's posts but change wording
And so on......

Predictability is my trademark.

I love you and I love the Volt.

The "Fake Beagle" tries very hard to intimidate.
But all he accomplishes is to give himself a bad name.
Try harder "Fake Beagle", what you"re doing so far just makes you look foolish.

Seven posts and not one about the Volt. Got bluster?
I'm still waiting for his link to the site that told him that the Volt battery will fail in 4 to 5 years.

It's been about 4 pages now. I think it will be a long wait.

In fact, he has never posted anything about any car. Just slinging B.S. Unfortunately for him ... none of it is sticking.

Big deal--you're barking up the wrong tree.
I freely admit using that name for a while.
And then I changed to another.
Something wrong with that?
The reason I changed then, and several other times as well, was to try and obstruct a couple of clowns who were cloning it.
My mistake, because the clowns simply cloned the next ones too.

Excellent advice:

"If you want my advice, the most damage we can do to people like this is to just walk away from these threads.
I was off for three months, and look what happened--the thread almost disappeared."

When are you going to disappear again? Soon, we hope. And the only reason why there are so few posts here is because your other persona ... voice of reality ... got deleted. That was about 1,000 posts. 320 odd pages and never find one link from you.

Just sling. Sling that doesn't stick.

Go back to your very first post ... mr. aka stop it .... negative. You've been negative ever since. I bet I could go through all

320 odd pages and never find one link. Not one. You're a pathetic little hater that love drama. That's why everybody labeled you as gay. Since your persona was deleted, we stopped that stuff.

I think we should take it up again. I hate calling you gay though because most gay folks are decent. I guess there are bad apples in every bunch.

Lithium Ion battery technology isn't foolproof by any means.
Today's EV batteries are without any doubt, the achilles heel for EV vehicles.
That weakness will be eliminated when Fuel Cell powered vehicles come on line.
Those interested in "green" vehicles would be wise to wait for that next gen technology.
By 2015, today's technology will be obsolete.
Fuel cell? Are you crazy? Do you know anything about what you post? Do you know what the infrastructure is for fuel cell?

My infrastructure is my wall plug. That's it you dope!!! And fuel cells will never get 150 mpg equivalent. So, just on that factor, they are already losers.

The best fuel cell cars today get 60 mpg.

http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/fcv_sbs.shtml

That is a major gas hog!!! And you have to put up with fuel cell technology. I plug in at night and get 140 mpg ... all day long.

Did you read any of those links to the future l.i. battery technology? Did you know that M.I.T has already developed a battery that can be charged in seconds and holds up to 100 times more power than current l.i. batteries? That technology is only about 10 years off. We are talking about cars with the sized battery as mine going 700 miles on a charge!!!

And while you wait ... you will spend another $20,000 on gas. You could have bought a Volt for $26,000 and never spent a penny on gas. You call me brainless? You can't even do simple math.

Fuel cells!! Sheeeeeesh

Most experts put fuel cell cars out another 7 - 10 years before they can make a profit.

However, their range will be that of today's plug in's. In 7 years plug in's will be way ahead of the game.

OK hater. My 2 year old Volt got a 45+ mile range today. That includes about 12 miles on the freeway.

I know you don't now this ... but electric cars get better mpg city than freeway. Just educatin' you.

35 miles driven and 10 miles left on the battery. And in case you didn't know ... and you don't ... the more you drive, the more range you pick up.

It's called regenerative actions. Try using your search function and educate thyself.



According to you, my Volt only gets 35 miles per charge and according to you, my Volt should only have about 75% of that left over, or 26 miles.

So ... I got 19 miles more than what you predict. Perhaps my battery is going to fail all in one day ... eh?

OK hater ... just educatin' you.

I reply with links to facts. They are not my opinion. Like battery expert Jack Rickard stating that Volt batteries will last at least 5,000 full charges.

All you say is "danger, danger, will smith ... Volt batteries will fail".

Big deal. Go back and find one presumptuous remark that I have made about the Volt.

About you ... probably yes. I may have called you a hater. I misspoke. You are a hater / jerk.

For instance ... you said that my post about the Volt MSRP being as low as low as $26,600 in CA was some type of voodoo math.

Here is the MSRP:
http://www.chevrolet.com/volt-electric-car.ht...

The federal tax credit is up to $7,500

The CA tax credit is up to $2,500

https://energycenter.org/programs/clean-vehic...

So ... please come back and tell me how this is made up. I'm waiting for this and for the one about the battery failing in 4 to 5 years.

It's going to be a long wait.

Cost of fuel for fuel cell. About $4.75 Best mpg for a fuel cell car ... 7.9 cents per mile.

On a bad day ... my Volt gets 2.9 cents per mile. 2.5 cents on good days and everything else is in between.

Fuel cells!!!!! You still have to go to the fuel station on top of that. I go home.

To Luvmyvolt...
Based on your most recent two pages of whinypost vitriol, it's clear that you finally lost it. You went bananas this time.
Those posts weren't your usual "look at me I own a Volt and you don't".
Every one was a completely irrational rant.
You may have a problem.
Might want to seek professional counselling before it gets completely out of hand.

If the Volt is such a inexpensive car to operate why are the taxpayers being screwed every time one is sold? What a ripoff of honest taxpayers!

The "Great Grandstander" accuses me of being someone else fairly often. Pathetic. Basically it's just another of his puny attempts to use guesswork and intimidate.
This time it's "Voice Of Reality" that I'm supposed to be.
He says he "Got "Voice of Reality" deleted.
Good news---his posts were beyond vulgar in my opinion.

Well, This Little Man is out to lunch in this instance just like he has been all along
For your information Little Man, here's the truth....
I have changed usernames from time to time, primarily because a few dimwits play game with them. That, I admit.

But,(now,read this slowly), "unlike those same dimwits, I have never (read "NEVER") changed my ISP location---Windsor, Canada".

You are completely wrong about your inferences that I posted as "Voice of Reality", and all those other names you attributed to me--"Dolt", etc.
I don't play those kinds of juvenile username games--unlike the dimwits who do regularly.

In fact, why not do what I have done and see for yourself what's going on here. You claim to be a tea leaf reading whiz, so that should be easy for you.

I popped a few "Hook" links in here back in June and July, then using a Query and Response Tool on some who clicked on those links, I learned who the culprits are who are playing those games--and where they live.

You would be surprised to know who you were dealing with (and still are) at the time.
Like I said to you once before..."Not everyone who disagrees with you is your enemy, and not everyone who agrees with you is your friend". Next time, heed that advice!!

Oh yes, one more thing---The "Voice of Reality" guy is a standalone person. He isn't one of the dimwits playing IP/Username games!
And I actually told him a couple of times that he was going too far in his posts!(If you're such an astute researcher--look it up)

Cheers.
