    Is it me or

    Is it me, the years of working in the “construction trades”, or are there a lot of sensitive people on this “wayalife” forum? I thought we just talked crap like we do out on the trails. Maybe this forum isn’t for me. And anyone know what the whole donkey thing is about? Did I offend the right person or what? Thanks.

    It’s you. It’s nothing to do with people being sensitive. You could give a fuck less about the “active” part of posting in the recycler then went full retard when you got shit about it. I’m pretty sure you’re right, this forum isn’t for you.

    I think it's simply a rules violation...and now testing whether you have thick skin or not...only time will tell if this place is for you...

    Besides, I like mules...if you ever have the chance to climb down the trail on a mule to Kalaupapa Peninsula on Molokai (I don't even know if they even do this anymore), you will think they are the most amazing animals on the planet, since they have your life in their hands...I mean hoofs.

    Seems you’re the one that doesn’t have thick skin. Got called out for being an idiot and now you’re here crying about it. Please don’t reproduce, you’ll only have dumb kids. And if you already have, then the world is now dumber for having your seed walking around. Good day.

    If you think it’s cool than.. I mean. I guess. But I love talking shit. We do it everyday at work.But I honestly didn’t know about these “rules”. I didn’t know I had to “Hi, I’m Dave” whole AA thing before I posted anything. I thought it was just a discussion type like reddit or 4chan and helping other jeepers out. Honestly if I posted something for free on a Jeep forum that would benefit the jeep community and someone asked if he could have it the last thing on my mind would be how many post he has. But than again I see both sides of the picture cause I wouldn’t want someone getting my shit for free and reselling it.

    The rules thing with me has an age curve...when I was young, I didn't give a shit...as I approached middle age, I paid more attention to it...now at my age, I'm turning into a teenager again. It's very invigorating...

    And the reason I went “full retard” is because the way he came at me. I’m sure any human would do the same if it was in person. If it was a more giving you shit vs a power trip like “hey man the free shit is for people who are on the forums constantly, ohh and You haven’t posted a digital Jeep wave thing yet so go ahead and at least do that before you TRY and get free shit”. Idk maybe this is the only form of “power” they have so any time a chance is given they’ll use it. Ohh and I’ll give it a few more weeks before I go back to the old way of meeting people. Out on the trails.

    The point of the “active” part is to keep vultures from just swooping in and getting free shit. If something is posted in the recycler here, it’s to help out other members of the forum that actually contribute something. Hell, I’ve shipped shit to active members on here on my own dime, loaned out tools, etc. I wouldn’t do that for just anyone especially someone who’s first post is about getting something for free. Even though you agreed to the rules (which you admittedly didn’t read), you could’ve avoided all this by just showing some humility, admitting you fucked up, apologizing and then moving on. You took the other path and started insulting people and being a douche about it. And trust me, you’re not the first. Maybe there’s still hope for you if you decide to stick around. Time will tell I suppose. But if you can’t see the logic in what I’m saying, it’s probably just time to move on to another forum or something.

    Should I of apologized? Yes. Did I fuck up? Yes. Was I being a complete total douche. Definitely. Should I just deleted my post and moved on? Yes. I just don’t like to bow down to people of no real world authority especially after coming at me that way. It’s not in me to. And I also like talking shit to whom are deserving. But yeah I would of shown some humility and said “sorry I fucked up, I’ll go do that” in a heart beat if it went the other way. And I honestly could care less for other people’s approval. I’m just here to look up, to help anyone in need, post how to’s, and see if anyone needs help in the area, and buy stuff. I just wanted to get a consensus of how most people are on this forum. And I completely see your logic and the other side of things.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
