Detroit Yes,, Communication Skills..

While I realize we all get emotional on this board just wondered can some of you quit with the constant F**ing this and F** that and the constant degrading personally of each other if you dont agree with what they say... Do you really speak like this in your conversation with people day in and day out in person ?..Some of the language on here is really sad..People years ago seldom spoke like this in this blog and lately the comments are really crude.. Please show a little class, I know you have the courage of anonymity here but you will find in life if you can speak more civily,, your message will be heard more strongly.. That goes for workplace and in your relationships,, It all evolves around a ancient word, its called respect.
Thanks



Can you quit with the constant F***ing double commas?

Our philosophy on this forum is foster free-flowing discourse while requiring civility.

Posts that step over the line are removed when discovered and any follow-up post that reference the offending post are likewise removed.

Those who have stepped over line are handled from PM warning to temporary banning all the way to permanent account termination. Factors such as seniority, past positive contributions to the discussion, degree of the rules violation and other factors go into banning decisions. In other words if you have been a longtime informative contributor and lose it one day you will probably get a warning. If you are a newbie or review of past posts reveal a negative pattern you will be gone.

Needless to say, this is unpleasant and time-consuming unpaid work for us. But our experience shows that it is the only way to keep the forum decently civil.

What is the alternative?

The biggest problem with the fucking communication over there is not enough fucking swearing. The shitforbrains asslickers who populate the discussions are worthless, brainless, insightless jerk wads.

Sorry but can't agree with you, listening to all the profanities flying around doesn't give me a great feeling, guess swearing at each other and friends just doesn't jive here, was just asking for a bit more civility, seems like we are really sliding down, wasn't at all referring to being serious all the time, just treating each other better.

General Motors $100 Bait And Switch Cadillac Promo
My letter that is being sent to GM:

Dear General Motor’s,
I was highly disappointed in your most recent Cadillac promotion. Yesterday, April 24, 2014, I decided to drive to Les Stanford Cadillac in Dearborn to test drive a Caddy. To be honest, I am a Ford guy, and have been since the early 90’s. Due to amount of driving I do, I always purchase rather than lease my vehicles. Since 1992 I have purchased new, a 1992 Ford Aerostar Sport, a 1995 Ford Econoline Conversion Van, a 2002 Ford F-150 SuperCrew, a 2007 Ford Expedition and most recently a 2013 Ford Edge SEL. I live in the heart of Ford Country only a ½ Mile from Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant. My neighbors to the right and left of me work for Ford as does the neighbor behind me, so for me to try out a G.M product would have been really something. Your promotion states that it will run to April 30 or while supplies last. What a scam. I was lured into the showroom by this promotion just as you wanted. I was promptly met by a salesperson who asked if I need assistance. I said I there to take advantage of the $100 promotion and to test drive a Cadillac that would be similar in style and size as my Edge. The salesperson said they were out of the Visa certificates and no other dealer had any left. Really! This salesperson ‘s nickname must have been “Carnac the Magnificent” to know that all Cadillac dealerships were out of the promotions. He said since I was there he would love to have me still test drive the car. That, right there turned me off. The old “bait and switch” routine at its best! “We don’t have any more promos left but we can still sell you a car”. For a promotion to run out of certificates at least a week early is some definite bad planning on your part.
You get all the networks to promote it on their newscasts to get new buyers in the showroom, then you tell the potential buyers, oops we don’t have the Visa cards but since you drove all the way here, can we sell you a car? I hope you put a little more thought into your next promotion.

Thank you for my time not well spent,

"White mail." Anyone want to guess what happens with white mail received at any office? The best ones end up posted on the corkboard in the break room. Reason being that lunatics as well as reasonably-aggreived customers all have access to paper and pen, and in the end who has time to sort through all of that bullshit?


Personal favorites include:

-guy who felt that his SUV was prematurely rusting out & sent an album of color photos of the undercarriage. The rust? Normal surface rust on suspension components on a vehicle over a year old; so much work for a book that went to the wrong place (i.e. where nobody gave a shit; we're the agency, dangit)
-lengthy letters decrying the way that the client's product appeared in TV shows. Like, a murderer drove a 300M and that deserved an official apology. Yeah, getting right on that
-commerical where a driver saves a deer from hunters. Who knew that NRA members could become so unhinged?
-and the Amish guy. Anyone remember the Amish guy who secretly kept a car under a tarp in the cow barn?
-Wehrner von Braun. c'mon, the dude's been dead since forever

Because it did so well with that War on Drugs and War on Terror stuff, now it's all freed up to work magic on other issues.


Do these dipshits really have a problem with carjackers being punished to the fullest extent of the law? I mean...

Yes

A.) iheartthed is so clinically insane, there's no use giving him his own thread. That would like trying break down the thought process of a teenager
B.) Cross post to Dnerd Weeping For the World's Wisdom and all questions will be answered. The red herring of the War on Drugs/Terror alone deserves the cross (Admin?)

The city is selling them to try and keep the neighborhoods intact, you moron.
