Obviously some people aren't listening so here goes again...

I'll answer that simply - because we can!

Ford Forums has an area called the pub and it is for general automotive talk that is not covered in other areas. What Ford Forums does not condone is people having a go at each other.

P.S. If I find out that kmav has any sort of link to Tesla he will be dealt with accordingly i.e. His posts will be considered spam and will be subsequently permanently banned from AFF. Until then, his posts will be treated like any other.
Highlighted green so that nobody can say they missed it...

The next person that questions why there is a Tesla thread in AFF or suggests that others should join another forum may find themselves having to find another forum to post in.

Elon playing fast and loose with the law, and the health of his employees. Probably because shutting down production means the company is screwed. The nerve of the guy running the production lines when he had been ordered by the state to shut up business.

Perhaps you need to look at this thread another way; instead of Kypez having to take his bat and ball and going elsewhere, allow him to post in a suitably titled thread (ie it provides warning of its content) and those who aren't interested can simply not read it.

Provides a solution to both camps.

PS And stop being so disrespectful to someone who has shown you no disrespect. Some of your posts are, frankly, unwarranted.
Agreed, whilst I can take or leave kmav and his Elon Worship I find kypes insight into ownership to be extremely interesting... Hell id love to hear MORE about it.. but I digress...

EV ownership is only going to get more and more "mainstream". An EV is on my radar to lease through work as a daily, to give my fun car a rest from the Drive to work grind. Having a thread like this, and posts from Actual owners giving no B/S experience is, I think, great.

Mercury T, the simplest way to not get bothered by a Tesla Thread on a Ford Forum, is also the easiest.. Don't bloody read it!!!

That's fine.

I will not comment in here again other your response. It appears I upset people with my views on Tesla in a Ford Forum.

Just for clarity though, is this a Ford or Tesla forum? Because this thread seems to get as much attention as any other.

Mate, let it go. If you don't like the thread, just exit out.

You seem to be going through something and are spoiling for a fight that you're not going to get here. Its a tough time for many at the moment and appreciate you might be under some stresses and are using this thread to vent. Just take a deep breath and don't get yourself blocked else you won't have this place at all.

Good Luck.

It would seem that you're a very slow learner.

And shock, horror there's also a COVID19 thread in a Ford forum as well!

Might I suggest that you take notice of your last 'holiday' as the next one could be longer.

Why being nasty to me?

The Covid thread is in the Bar not main page.

Which is where the Tesla thread should be.

I haven't got nasty... yet, but if you look on the main page in the General Topics area there's one called 'The Pub' which states 'For General Automotive Related Talk'.

Does that answer your question?

Pretty sure moderators don't need your advice.
