Ladies and Gentlemen,
Recently I happened upon a post of interesting discussion pertaining to the manner in which we correct/point out things to each other and manners in general. I just wanted to point out as a Psychiatric Nurse...my observations.

Certainly some manner of politeness is required to respond to each other....but...personality and method can be an individual thing. Individuals that are direct/to the point...can be received as abusive or berrating. Via email and text..it is difficult to place intonation, nonverbal cues, and my beloved sarcastic inuendos. On the other hand...an individual may have a mentoring spirit....wisdom applied to the new guy in us all (particularly me) and a nurturing(although it sounds really wussy like) manner that fosters growth amongst the motorcycle lifespan.

My point with all this is that we need both of you in the forum. I as a new guy appreciate your no bs attitudes (cuz I want to live not die on the road) and your vision of a better Vulcan 750 rider. I say..be who you are! If I don't like it....I will complain and/or boycott your behinds! Just like I did to West Fort Worth Kawasaki after they screwed me over on my tires(see other thread). Just thought I would throw in those few cents. Stay cool.

As with any community, there are some old battles that occasionally flare up on here. In the thread you mention, Kimmerling, Fergy was spot-on: those critiques of KM would've best been done in private, and for some of the reasons you mention (can't always properly infer tone or intent from a written comment).

99% of the time, though, this is all about being helpful and making sure we ride safely and come back to post another day. :)

So, how did that turn out? Did we do any good at all?

On behalf of all the members who inevitably have trouble avoiding your 'beloved sarcastic innuendos', Thanks for the post KIMMERLING!... I have always wondered how to conduct myself on this forum!
(evidently they skipped over Blogs in my etiquette class)

KM

God! I Hope This Place Never Changes. It's all the personallities (if you watch long enought) That I love the best about this place. While I'm no expert I will say. "There's alot of places on the net to get motorcycle information, but there's only one I want to be insulted by, praised by, embaraced by, enjoyed by... ect, ect & that's right here. You Folks Rock.:beerchug:

Kawasaki Ft Worth

Nothing became other than me filing with the Attorney General and Better Business Bureau. At least its a matter of public record. They will answer to The Almighty someday.

Fighting the Man

So, how did that turn out? Did we do any good at all?
I would like to point out that you and we all did a great thing fighting the corruption of the Ft Worth Stealership. We stood for more than just myself. We stood up for an ideal of service and quality which we all demand. We stood for a better motorcycle industry, customer service, and accountability.
Everyday we ride on our horses of steel and battle the streets of urbania. We strive to become strong in our abilities and ensure our return to perspective castles. There is for us, very little room for poor performance, poor customer satisfaction, and no accountability. We demanded these things via email and electronic media. We let the record show our fervent desire for Fire and Steel.
Yes my friend. We did good.

One of the neat things about the internet is that things stay posted forever. Whenever you find their ad online, see if there is a way to leave a message. Then check back and see if you need to do it again.
Also, I'm not sure if any messages went to Kawasaki headquarters. They should feel the heat, too.

Kimmerling, why did you dig up a six month old post then complain about it? If you're gonna comment on a post that was dead and should have stayed that way, you should've done it back in August when it was going on. I'm not about to dig up a negative post from a year ago then bark at the people who posted about it am I?

Can't believe I'm saying this but KM you did nothing. As irony would have it, Kimmerling needs some "forum etiquette" not you. Learn to check dates on when things were posted before you post about them. No one needs old negativity on a motorcycle forum this time of year. I promise we'll find new stuff to bark at eachother for starting very soon. The old dead stuff can stay that way. That's all I have to say about that.
