I'm on my third Saab, the first two having given their lives to save mine from red-light-running kamikazes. I'm not much of a mechanic, but I love these Swedish sleds as much as the next guy. As a result, I spend more time perusing than posting. Just pause for a second the next time you decide to jump somebody for a minor offense. You may not realize it, but you often come off looking like a bigger jerk than they did, and it sometimes discourages newbies or thin-skinned posters who may have something to gain or offer by participating in the discussion. You and Dave provide a lot of information, but give a lot of unnecessary attitude to people who have the audacity to challenge your self-appointed dictatorship of the group. Apparently I'm not the only one who notices. Holding up a mirror to your conduct is apparently a hanging offense around here, so I'll retreat again to the shadows.
