A "word" recognized by almost every individual with a form of English as their 1st language....
(P.s thats ALOT of people) we apologize for you lack of a social life.

Sometimes you guys OD this **** and I apologize, but comon? if you can read it and clearly understand it 1st time around then their should be no need to criticize over it. I agree when it takes 2-3 times to understand, something should be said. But circumstances such as this need to just be left alone.

Ah, but you couldn't leave it alone!
To paraphrase another active Subie poster who needed to rant:
"... Is it just me or is social media making the new generation less resourceful? In my day, if you needed something, you made do with the means at your disposal or you learned the hard way what they were. Now, it's like no one has any common sense to problem solve; always turning to social media to beg other people to find the solution for them. The internet is indeed a gold mine of information (if you're able to filter out all the f'n crap), but for Pete's sake, don't always ask other people to dig it up for you! It's like their parents never taught them anything useful in real life...

The good old ways are still viable! Smart phones are still a f'n PHONE, use it to make calls! Ever thought of calling the dealership, the auto parts store, the salvage yard, a knowledgeable friend, or daddy (heck, even grandpa)? Sure, you'll sometimes have trouble finding a competent person, but chances are you'll get your solution faster than waiting for the internet page to refresh. Also, ever tried attempting said repair yourself? You might screw up but at least you'll learn something. It's better than nothing and you'd be no worse than you were before!
"

This isn't just me finding fault with a misspelled word. I'm saying don't come to the party naked and ask for clothes and a ride home. If you can find your way to this thread to make your first post you should be able to do a little research and know that this is not the place to start to learn and then ask to be taught. You're still going to have to know where to find the OBD port...

Personally I agree to an extreme measure at everything you've just posted. Luckily being only 19 I was brought up to work for what I wanted and worked hard for it I did, personally I try to do research on everything before I post... the issue is when you start you don't know any better and I'm sure last year when I got my 1st subaru I made a dumbass post or 2, it unfortunately was something I learned real quickly not to do because of how annoying I noticed it was when others did it.

People take advantage of the Internet every day. But I see to much on here, of people being **** on for not putting a semicolon in the correct place!? A semicolon for christ sakes! It just can irritate me at times and I ranted it out on u. (My apologies)

But I feel their was still a better way to simply state "have you done any research on this?" And when they reply with an obvious no, just explain that thats the only way their gonna learn...

Im loosing my train if thought, regardless I just think certain people OD the whole "grammatically correct" and being a fellow nasioc member im sure you have seen it 1st hand.

Guidance teaches, ignorance just causes more ignorance.
