I appreciate the fact

that someone took my car has been demoted



but that thread does not belong on the rant room at all

it belongs right here where I have always been and people
know me best

Re: I appreicate the fact

I kind of agree too.

But like TS said it might be even better in GAD.


PM/Page those in control Quinn.

Re: I appreicate the fact

You indeed are the soul of way off topic.
I read it and thought that it would turn into a rant if it was me but when I found out it was you decided it was indeed off topic.
Good luck finding the car BTW. There is nothing on e-bay as I have seen yet.

Kurz ... how would you feel if you woke up tomorrow and
your car was vanished with no explanation
... the one you'd paid for ... that aint a rant that's a genuine
watch out ... there is no need for relegation of concern and bother

Dude - calm down, I said it "shouldn't" be in the Rant Lounge, IMHO.

It should be here.

But then further reading - maybe it should be in GAD where perhaps there is a wider audience, to look out for it.


I already posted in your thread, that was moved, and posted what I thought.

Re: I appreicate the fact

Well & quite understandably, there was a whole lot of ranting in there, hence the justifyable move. I'm in bed on mobile so can't act. PM or page one of the other mods Quinn and I'm sure they'll consider a move back. The thread could also be stuck if required.

Re: I appreicate the fact

A genuine watch out is a great idea for sticking. This needs to be basic and factual though

it was all basic and factual ... that is what really happened and then that is the way I felt

...and still do ... some idiot has my car by stealing it ... I can't figure
out how much factual you can get ... I'm angry at the circumstances

how else am I meant to feel

I think all that is meant is give us whatever details you can: year, spec, registration, wheel type, etc. Plus your general location (city would be a good start, or area of larger city).

I mean I know you're missing a purple 155, but that's all I know (not that it matters to me as it wouldn't turn up around here). If you give people more details, they can only do a better job of keeping their eyes open.

Please Quinn - TS is, as we all are, genuinely concerned for you and would like to do whatever we can to help. I know you must be hurting, but please take the good advice from those who care.

Re: I appreciate the fact

Why has this thread become a sticky when it should have been the other one or a mirror image of it now in GAD which was in the Rant Lounge, previously here in WOT - which this thread is about?

Oops. That was me.
