Exclamation Sprinterless memembers

OK ...
I understand joining a Sprinter forum,...........
if you have a Sprinter..........
OR ........if your thinking of getting a Sprinter,and are researching them

but once you decide that a Sprinter is not for you, why do you stay(live) here
Why do you stay?????..... just to talk down about a van you dont want, don't own , and will never own?????
Dont you have any sort of real life???

Are you here to save the world from MB???
Some of you brag that, your either a rocket scientist(remember Barbarbian? LOL LOL) or brain surgeons, or drive a bla bla,
Why dont you join one of those forums and spend your miserable life in one of those forums.

JLC1 is kind of funny, like the napkin in the glove compartment causing a LHM, I can even see Dr. Z sadisticly laughing over that one all the way to the bank.

OTOH, he has gotten a little carried away with the Sprinter bash thing, but he did actually own a Sprinter and has a right to rant, but for how long?

For now, I remain neutral and enjoy the grins.

I don't mind him dogging Sprinters but he is now resorting to dogging personal decisions. His "humor" is now off putting and boring. If everyone would ignore him maybe he will go away.

Maybe...just maybe mb is reading this forum and saying "vee got Das problems". And when they finally fix them all you can thank me for speaking up.
Yea...that's the ticket...

Do you know that active forums have value? A forum can be opened up, developed and sold believe it or not. There are company's out there shopping for very active forums to purchase so they can use them as advertising bases for products.

If a forum is stale the value decreases, if a forum is hopping it holds its potential sale value.

Has this forum been stale?

I'm not saying this forum is being groomed for a sale, but the fact that it's so active is a good thing.
Post counts my friend are like dollar bills in the bank.

Productive posts count. How many users are not posting because of your personal attacks?
All posts are good posts especially if they generate more posts.
Not if you drive users away. Like I said productive and relevant criticism is one thing but you tend to get carried away and get off subject
You guys question the mods here... I would give them a statue in the center of my town for the freedom they allow here.
Amen
You guys are lucky you can say and do what you want. There are forums that edit your posts, delete them, and ban you for nothing. Don't you enjoy the freedom you have to say anything you want anytime you want to?
Don't be afraid of a little negativity .... I'm sure we all just want the same thing... which is a better acting Sprinter. And better treatment from the dealerships.
Yes I did not buy a Sprinter for my business now... but I sure was planning on one for my tour of USA at retirement ... still waiting and watching for Sprinter to improve so maybe in 5 years it could be a choice again.
What I said may or may not be useful or helpful, just trying to increase the value of the forum with another post.

PS: I don't think this forum would have lasted as long and have as many dedicated contributors if it is only interested in the number posts it generates. Sorry for editing an existing post and not creating a new one.

Sorry you lost what little credibility you had when you proclaimed how great Hyundai is............

The only thing they do is make poor copies Honda and Toyota and now maybe MB vans in the future.
Hyundai maybe the only other car that will rust like the old Sprinters.

Your opinion and I respect that. If I lose credibility over a car that can clock 100k in 2-3 years with one set of tires and maybe 15 oil changes.... than your value system is wacked.
This is and should be considered normal for ALL cars and even vans... it seems to be at my house anyways.
You poor thing... you are a perfect example of being conditioned to accept the weekly nut kicking by MB then thanking them and asking for another.
It does not have to be like that you know.

One isolated experience does not make a brand rating.
