Question Just wondering

I go to several automotive tech boards. While this board is probably the largest and most visited; it also seems to be the only one that attracts what "we" call 'TROLLS'. They (the TROLLS) also seem to live in Western Canada for the most part.

Just wondering why that seems to be? Winter's too long and cold? Drugs and alcohol? Inbreeding?

Glad you said "Western" Canada, but I should still take offence.

I have seen quite a few of your "Good ol boys" say some pretty dopey things too.

I don't mind the "dopey things". What I see a lot of is just name calling and vulgarity, or just plain "smart ***" remarks. It wouldn't be so bad if they would ask an auto related question once in a while.

By the way; my question is not meant to offend anyone. I'm just wondering out loud.

Western Canadian here guys, I'm in the room you know. Maybe your stat should say the Greater Ponoka area, but not Western Canada, thats a little general, don't ya think? I can't get grief cause I live near the "No Hitter(s)" And even those guys have relaxed lately, I mean us Western Canadians Maybe you should just say Canadians, cause that Auto-Part loser is from here too, Hmm now that I think about it all the Trolls are Canucks. I think we have a problem here.

There are TROLLS on the Hot Rod Magazine forums but I don't think I've ever seen a TROLL post on ChevyTalk , heck I offered a guy a pair of 57 Chevy rear top fender mouldings for free on ChevyTalk and the mod had pulled it within 2 minutes , post was replaced with "NO ADS IN POSTS"

If'n ya can't meet wim'n at the family reunion....

As a Western Canadian, I'm less offended by Frisco's ponderings than by some of the crap that has been posted by my fellow citizens. Honestly, most of us are hard working and respectable -it only takes a few to colour things.
