Actually the first time I read it it made perfect sense. Probably for the same reason it made sense to you when you typed it.

My small brain automatically inserted the "of" so no need to slam Mori for another "typo".

I suppose we could have worked as an encrypter/decrypter team for Bletchley Park. How's your Navajo? Yah-te!

Nope. Written as intended, Dr. Noro, I mean Mori.

I guess it's never safe to discuss in mixed company sex, religion, politics, and....motor oil.

I look at it as a bunch of guys, sitting around drinking coffee, discussing auto lubrication, maintenance, and performance.

Should be harmless enough...right?

Lou, you can add economics & trade to that list as well, since they can be just as volatile (IF not MORE) than the ones you've mentioned.

I've been a member for a while and have noticed the hostility growing in recent times. It's like if someone does not like a post or the subject of the post, they slam the poster instead of just "movin on".

If a reader does not like a post, then quit reading it.

I don't know if it's just me but it doesn't seem like threads are as aggressively moderated as the used to be. I dunno if a more "hands off" approach was taken or not on purpose, but that's what it seems like. Even a thread like this wouldn't have lasted too darn long. Lol, I lost posting privileges for less than I see in many threads now.

The M1 "revelation" also seemed to have awaken some latent nastiness in many otherwise civil posters.

Another thing that's discouraged me from threads is the fact that people have gotten so nasty and upfront about credentials and background. I know that this forum was founded to help cut through the #@$%! and advance knowledge but some people get chased out of topics unnecessarily just b/c they don't have the 40/100 cSt viscosities of all M1 grades memorized or tattooed on a special body part.
