(Peacemaker mode engaged 👍🏻)
I'd assumed, perhaps wrongly, that everyone was aware what the letters IMHO meant? 🤔
It was placed in the post, bracketed, precicely because, and in recognition of, other opinions being available on the subject.
If I'd said ALL PCP's are ragged from mile one the over defensiveness would perhaps be justified, because that would be wrong.
But I didn't did I. Its a law of averages thing... on balance, across the board, there's a higher chance of an incremental drop in care for something you don't intend to keep over something you intend to live with forever.
I don't recognise that as being some sort of whackjob left field hypothesis. Its logical. You, me, we're all more likely to act differently when we never see the longer term consequence of our actions/inactions.
Its not unique to cars either... literally anything. Buy a wedding suit and you'll take good care of it, hire one and you won't bother with the napkin during the meal and you'll be '**** dropping' with the best of 'em on the dance floor later on 🤘🏻
If you didn't rag your cars from mile one guys (the heart of the OP's topic before accusations of straying off topic get thrown about) then bravo... but it really shouldn't bother you so if its brought up.
There is an alternative to effectively telling someone to 'shut up'... if it doesn't apply to you, just ignore it 🤷🏻
But if you're really that upset about it the site even has a function to help. Please, if this honestly held personal opinion of mine is so offensive... press the ignore function and ignore me 👍🏻
If you're not going to do that then just tell me you have a different opinion, that's fine, that's how discussion works. Just don't ever tell someone to stop having or expressing an opinion, that'll never work in a free speech democracy, especially when its entirely on topic for this thread.
Peace out ❤
