I know better than to feed the trolls, but since this was moved for entertainment purposes and I'm bored...
first of all don't ever say flame fest again
second of all this isn't ebay. not sure what ur complaining about but ~2,k easy California driven miles on some brand spanking new toyos is not bad. that's about...what 4 months of driving. lol 400 posts? ur opinion is OVERRATED broski so you gtfo my thread
Your other personality that liked my critical post
agreed and understood. The personality quoted above is just wrong on many levels, among them being:
1. First of all, it's a public thread, and last time I checked, "flame fest" wasn't prohibited language on TCCOA. If the term flame fest
were prohibited, you can rest assured I wouldn't have said flame fest
. But, since flame fest
isn't prohibited, I said flame fest
. I'm pretty sure I had never typed flame fest
on this forum before, and I doubt I'll bother typing flame fest
again.. at least, not until such time as a flame fest
2. The statement that TCCOA isn't eBay is correct, and is, of course, completely irrelevant. Overselling sales hype is overselling sales hype, regardless of where it's posted. It's used car salesman exaggeration, pure and simple. It's no skin off my nose what anyone here does or doesn't do with their stuff (that I'm not purchasing), and since I have no vested interest in it, there's no reason to complain. What was misperceived as a complaint was merely pointing out the obvious, as a criticism. There's a difference between complaint and criticism, the nuance of which evidently eluded the above quoted (triggered) personality.
3. Not sure what you were referring to as being my opinion. If it was the flame fest
remark (oops, I did it again), yes, obviously that was opinion. But, since the OP/above personality is evidently unaware, the definition of "brand new" isn't opinion, it's English. You can familiarize yourself with it here: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/brand-new
As soon as you drive off with a new tire on the vehicle, it becomes used. First, it was presented as barely less than 3,xxx which has since turned into approximately 2k.
In either case, it's FAR from "unused". You could have driven over all kinds of things in the roads right off the tire store lot. Maybe one of your personalities is a horrible driver and could have run hard over several curbs (that stresses a tire and it isn't generally obvious by looking at it), hit a dozen deep/jagged potholes before you got a mile down the road, run over rocks and/or scratched up the sidewalls, did burnouts out of every stop, whatever
. Point is, used != new. If you had merely qualified it similar to: "In my opinion, they're like new and have never been mistreated", I wouldn't have even bothered responding to that at all. I'll credit you for admitting mileage on them, but unfortunately that rough estimate keeps changing (getting lower). A potential buyer at this point would be completely justified in demanding to see the original sales receipt, showing not only the date of purchase, but the odometer mileage for comparison (not that they should believe the OD wasn't rolled back), as well as confirmation that they were in fact brand new
when you had them installed.
4. Post number. Seriously?
Other than the one that liked my critical post
, your personalities wouldn't understand the concept of quality vs. quantity (a rare exception being this very post, but then I hardly ever post in the Misc. section — and I won't be replying to any of your personalities' replies here henceforth, although I appreciate the personality that liked my critical post
