Someone having a moral compass and belief systems that were in place all along yet them having the courage to stand up and vocalize their convictions ruins their image?

If you were referring to me, I'm just fine with whatever false image you had of me being erased. You can be damn well certain I won't back down or be swayed by popular opinion. AS for my house, we will serve the Lord.
Oh no, not referring to anyone at all. I'm just saying as a whole, this is the wrong avenue for such discussion, as this is a automotive forum.
Those types of discussion I feel should always be in person so that one can accurately say what they mean as well as give people a chance to discuss their viewpoints without being misconveyed. Just like my statement was by you

We all come from different homes, value systems, beliefs, life experiences, careers, etc. There is value in that. Sharing those perspectives, however uncomfortable it may be at times, doesn't have to be a bad thing.
I really like this paragraph, it is exactly why should be discussed, but like I said earlier, I feel this is the wrong avenue to do so.

Kyle, you are the one who seems to have the issue. I build my own car (with lots of help I might add), customize it to my liking and compete with it. Even 11 years after purchase, my car is still a work in progress. I'm at 132K, stock internals, stock turbo, stock tranny. I don't "think" the GD is king…I let the performance, reliability and placings speak for themselves. You think another platform is better…come prove it. Are there features of the new technology I feel are better, sure. I would love to have variable valve timing, I would love to have direct injection, but I have a debt free car that can set FTD when I am up to the task. I do find it interesting that Subaru seems to be moving back to a 2.0 liter platform.
No issue, you should know me well enough, Mike, that I love all of the Subaru's. I've even come to ask for your guidance in what path to bring my car on. I love that you are still throwing things at the car and the you actually push the damn thing instead of letting it sit pretty in a garage. But, the issue I have is the fact that A LOT of people don't have forward thinking when it comes to other models. Maybe it's just be, but I LOVE learning about new cars and not just from Subaru.
Technically, Subaru has never really left the 2.0 platform. They still use it in most markets, I believe it's JUST the USA that sees the 2.5.

Why should people who own an earlier generation car bother themselves to learn a new platform if they don't own it? We had to learn our own models…why involve ourselves with your car's issues?
I guess it's not so much issues that I'm concerned with, it's mostly what is compatible between models is what I'm worried about. OR just basic maintenance questions. It's early, I can't quite process this thought quickly, haha moving on.

Never happened. Even in that era, I had the good sense to recognize bad taste.
I will admit, I wore a pink shirt, ONCE.
Hahaha, thank you for having fun with this convo, Mike. Much appreciated.
