I think the toyota SUA killings prompted them to recall more often now.

By "toyota SUA killings", I have to assume you are referring to the drivers who stepped on the gas pedal rather than the brakes? You are aware of course that no Toyota vehicle was ever found to be the cause of any of these alledged instances, not by any court of law, not by any government agency, not by NASA.
Unless you have any information that any of the aforementioned agencies might have missed.

Pay no attention to Root.
Posts like these are just deliberate nuisances.
He's trolling for attention only.

Don't try to change the subject. We need to make sure these recalled cars are safe to drive.

You are the definition of a troll. Nobody asked you to post here anyway. You did it on your own. Stop trying to change the subject.

Youíre forgetting about sticky pedals and floor mats. Toyota admitted to SUA for those issues.

What you refer to is the electronic SUA of which you will concede the reason no court found them guilty is because they settled those suits and they paid dearly. Not only did they settle the wrongful death suits they were also fined millions by the US Government for breaking the law.

Nice try at rewriting history. As I remember it you never did, never have, applied floor mats and sticky pedals to your arguments when it comes to Toyotaís SUA. Those two items have always been struck from your writings.

Hey if you can express yourself without talking about me thatís one thing. If your intention is to open your mouth and spew aids tainted saliva on me then I will answer every time. Now you can mind your business and there wont be any problem.

Itís funny though, absent from your nasty evil crap you spewed you never did speak to the topic. Go figure.

Root, you really should keep out of other people's conversations.
It just gets you into trouble whenever you do so.
Won't you ever learn?

Another post and you failed to address the toyota recalls. Will the day ever come that you decide to be nice and respectable, to discuss the actual subject at hand, and to be polite? You complain that Iím in your conversation, but you come here and talk about me. I just donít get it. What drives you to do these things?

Root, will the day ever come when you'll finally realize you must not interfere with other people's conversations?
You seem to be a little slow on the uptake.
So I'll repeat it one more time....

You were never in the conversation. He responded to me. You jumped in with more of the usual nonsense that was directed at me in a hateful way and not on topic.

Now how do you feel about the toyota recalls?

Re the Toyota recalls...big deal!
What's the difference between their recalls and others?
Chrysler (Jeep) just had a huge recall, Ford just had another.
On and on it goes. Recalls are not unusual these days, everybody has them.

I would be very pleased however, to see you have a recall Root.
Especially when you stick your nosy nose into conversations I'm having with Liner.
Your problem is definitely an inherent flaw worthy of a recall.
Maybe we should report you to the NHTSB?

YOU brought up the subject of "toyota SUA killings", did you not?
I was merely trying to help you keep your facts straight. Something which must be done regularly in order to keep your agenda in check.

Yes but you were wrong. You canít attempt to keep people in check unless you have your facts straight.

To Liner--(And only Liner!):

The problem as I see it is that the author of this thread, as you said, has an agenda.
The agenda is quite clear. History proves that.
His agenda is comprised of only one purpose.
His objective is to bring attention to anything and everything negative about only one automaker-- Toyota.
He appears in only those threads with Toyota's name on them.
He fulfills his agenda by (a)frequently bringing forward old Toyota threads and adding frivolous and contentious remarks; and (b) authoring new Toyota threads which focus only on negatives and using hyprbole to attract others into controversy.
This guy's been doing this for years, and the proof of the pudding is clear-- all that's needed is to scroll through Topix Autos Forum history and his name appears prominently in literally every negative Toyota thread in the site, and literally no others.
Essentially, the guy's got a profound obsession with dissing Toyota.
And Liner, the biggest mistake we make is to participate in the threads this guy indulges his agenda in.
It simply feeds his obsession, and fulfils his neurotic purpose of keeping negative focus on his targeted automaker.
If you note, many, if not all posts he launches are simply geared to get others back into the fray.

All things considered, instead of feeding this character's fanatic obsession, we would probably be wise to simply ignore his attempts to keep the fires lit.
What do you think?

For the record, this thread was posted by Roboblogger. I do not want people to forget about the killings. I hold life in a dear manner and believe in the truth. This is about right and wrong. Accusations of bias should be left out of the conversation. This is no different than a Ford or GM recall.
