    its getting bitter!

    This prob should be in general chat but I spend 99% in the 8l section so its very relevant to what goes on in here.

    I've noticed recently people getting really bitter to each other, most new threads are resulting in petty arguments which is a shame. Were all supposed to be helping each other but most of the time its not the case. What's goin on, its hostile. Maybe mods should adress the issue accordingly. I can't be the only one that's noticed it.

    Peace people

    I did notice a bit of bitterness in the thread about the coilpacks which was a bit unnecessary. Don't wanna sound like a bellend but its mostly from new users who are probably taking some comments too strongly not knowing what some people are like.

    Now see that's interesting because I can see why now.

    There is one new member on here that I have taken an immediate dislike to, mentioning no names. Seems to have a way of pissing me off by the way thinks are worded.

    Comments like 'I can't believe how stupid you all are' is a bit of a sweeping statement to be fair, undeserved and frankly bang out of order.

    I've had to have a thread cleaned of their pointless, unhelpful comments yesterday.

    It's unusual to be fair, it takes a lot for me to dislike anyone.

    Also, it's great apologising once you find out you are wrong. However to say that everyone is stupid in the first place is a bit out of left field!

    Hopefully things will settle down now anyway.

    I have only been on here a month, as thats how long I have owned an Audi so can't really say if this forum is getting bitter or not. Since joining here I have asked a couple of questions and everyone seems more than helpful and positive in there replies.

    I will ask loads more questions I am sure, so will see if the positive helpful answers keep coming lol.
