Off Topic Posting---- AGAIN...?!?

As for off topic posting...

This IS my life... For the next 15 minutes anyway....
And for an hour or more every day. I look forward to comming here!

I don't care what you post, or anyone else for that matter...
If you don't like it, don't open it...

Jokes I'm OK with... I don't normally open the political stuff...
I'm about as non political as one person can get. I have my opinion, no one on this board is going to change it.
I vote, so If I want to b*tch I'm allowed, I just don't see much point in it.

Whining about the off topic threads is pretty much the same thing.
I contribute here, so I have a right to post what I feel like sharing with the others here...
I don't b*tch about off topic stuff because I go off topic on a regular basis...
I have more experiences that just Jeeps, and several people here have benefitted from those experiences...
I didn't learn starting and charging systems in a Jeep, or for Jeeps....
Same with ignition systems, or engine building... but my experiences, off topic to be sure, have helped a few here.

I'm sure I'll go off topic with jokes or stories, but it's something I want to share...
If you don't want it, or don't like it, hit the back button and leave the thread.
It's that easy.
I'll be done in a minute, and you can go on doing what ever you want to...

Some should lighten up about off topic postings. I learn a lot about the people here on their off topic postings.
CJ Dave is a left wing radical that loves Clinton & Gore.... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
He's also one hell of a nice guy that will do anything he can for the people here...

We've traded stories, tech tips, jokes, insults, lies and everything else you can think of here except bodily fluids, and I'm a better person for it.
I've learned a lot, and I learn more every day here.

This is the closest thing to a Cyber campfire I can think of, and I really like it here.
Let's not spoil it with a bunch of hall monitor types wanting to censor everything that is posted......

Just my $0.02 worth...
Aaron.

Re: Off Topic Posting---- AGAIN...?!?

TR......you are an opinion looking for a place to happen.....

Aaron...just kidding...I couldn't resist the chance....but I agree for the most part with you. I am a firm believer in the 1st Admendment....Freedom of speach...and the freedom to ignor it. Off topic threads are ok here if the intent is to share it with a specific group...but for the most part, I prefer the topics to be about jeeps. If I want to know about politics, I will visit a forum that talks about politics.

I feel the best way to handle unrelated posts is to just ignore it. Most people who get emotional about a political issue thrive on attention. Arguing with them adds fuel to their cause...ignore them and they will find someone else to preach at.............OMG...is that what I am doing now[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]?

By the way...wish me luck guys....this weekend I'm putting the 4.10 gears in the front, going through my front axle completely...sand blast and paint it with POR 15. I'm also doing a tie rod flip and U-bolt reversal...not to mention a couple of other tricks. I'll take plenty of pics and post them when (and if) I'm done.....There...that makes this post related to jeeps [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

In some ways it's better than a campfire. For one you don't have to move out of the way of the smoke when the wind changes.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Off Topic Posting---- AGAIN...?!?

I'm making my own, or at least part of it. I orderd the square u-bolts from National Spring...$59 for both axles, including tax. I'm making my own top plates because I'm doing a couple of extra things. First, I'm mounting one end of my stearing stabilizer to the top plate on the left side. This will put my shock straighter in relation to the drag link. In the rear, the top plate is going to be an integral part of an axle truss.

It all won't happen this weekend...but when I have it done, I'll post pictures.

FYI...it would be a lot cheaper to just buy the stuff....but not as much fun.

Well, I got the 4X Doctor stuff for about 2 1/2 years now and I just love it. Didn't hang up on the springs at all on the Rubicon.
I'll be looking for the pics, should be interesting.
