I've gotten a couple complaints on including the top paragraph in the Weekly bulletin sent out last night....So much for expressing good will.......It's amazing how quick people are to jump to conclusions about the nature of a person by reading context into an email.....or anything for that matter.....and maybe give one ounce of thought before running off at the mouth....

Sorry, had to vent........

Politically Correct

I don't want to turn this into a political forum and you may remove this reply if you would like.

Let me be politically correct.

Justice will be done. My opinion is if you don't like the way we run our country then get your A$$ out of here. That is what I call freedom. Freedom to pack your $hit and get out.

Right now people are very much on edge. If I hear someone talking bad about the US. I will swing first and then ask questions.

Right now the Americans are grieving for the dead and the families of the dead. Right now it would be best for people to let us grieve. If they don't then there will be a war. Right out on the sidewalk.

JC,

Don't let that person push your buttons... you did a good job writing a very tactful email.

Some people may not agree with the idea of 'vengeance' (Jesus Christ didn't for one), but 'justice' is not the same word. Although people can interpret the word 'justice' in many ways.

If that person was reading more into the message about you, it sounds like they have some personal issues with you and are using the email for an excuse to lash out.

IMO you did a good job.

justice (jùs´tîs) noun
1. The quality of being just; fairness.
2. a. The principle of moral rightness; equity. b. Conformity to moral rightness in action or attitude; righteousness.
3. a. The upholding of what is just, especially fair treatment and due reward in accordance with honor, standards, or law. b. Law. The administration and procedure of law.
4. Conformity to truth, fact, or sound reason: The overcharged customer was angry, and with justice.
5. Abbr. J., j. Law. a. A judge. b. A justice of the peace.

I cannot speak for everyone, but I believe I can speak for 95% of the population by saying you are doing a great job JC! Your thoughts are shared by most Americans. Thank you for that Email, it was IHO VERY tasteful. Do not let these people that ridicule you, get to you. You are doing a great job as far as I am concerned. As far as "Apparently, you can't please anyone...." , you have pleased me and majority of those who recieved and read the Email. Thank you again. :yeadog:

I haven't seen the paragraphs in question. But you have every right to say what ever you want to. Politically Correctness is just plain bullshit. It's just an excuse to draw sympathy onto themselves and to blame the other person(s) for all their own problems. My 2 cents.

Who ever complained, and I don't think i'm alone here, can kiss my ass and I would rather you never visit our forum again. How could you possibly complain about a subtle broad statement such as that. If you want something to caomplain about then shoot me your e-mail address and i'll send you plenty of material to complain about.

Well said, JC. Perhaps some people are feeling overloaded with the situation and just want it to go away and are a bit on edge, but I took your comments in the spirit in which they were intended. Thanks. ;)

I think what was said was said quite well..

I believe some people are just so upset they don't know what to bitch about.

Keep the faith man..

Your doing good. I appreciate the communication in your newsletter and the fact we have friends with which to shoot the breeze with..

Let me know that PO box address via email b/c I'm so struck over this whole thing going on I cant get even simple things together..(like paypal)

I don't know about you guys..but I'm moving real slow. Everything I do..I have to think about twice..maybe three times to make sure I do it right..

Very sad day..

It would cheer me up if I could send a raffle ticket to you guys..

personally, i didnt find anything wrong with the email. we are a community that has been able to share thoughts outside of the car realm so no biggie. if you dont want those bullentins then unsubscribe.

the only reason i'd unscubscribe is that i just have too much other email to deal with and i visit this site often enuff to be up to date.

just my position...

i didnt post much if any on 9/11 just because it was a day that the last thing on your mind is a car and i personally didnt think anyone would want to hear a person ramble on about their car or discuss/argue dyno numbers that day.

as for now, i personally keep posting about cars and leave it at that. i've seen posts on the viper board about killing and using racist remarks and rather not see it here. i understand people are angry and need to vent and, like i said, forums like these have also created a brother/sisterhood that can tolerate some openess but there is no excuse for that kind of stuff that was over there. comfort each other. console each other. but i rather just keep posting about cars (after this post :)) for people that just want to get away from every channel on tv discussing this tragedy and be a little selfish for a few moments and think of other things.

thanks for your time.

JC, well worded, and well thought out. You spoke form the heart and that is never a bad thing. The person who complained about this should simply stick their head back up their $ss and continue with their life as they know it.


Nice Jobe, keep up the GOOD work.
