Why do people complain about threads they aren't interested in, or those they feel are duplicate threads? Here's a novel idea, if the thread doesn't interest you, ignore it. Why do you feel the need to post a message voicing your displeasure with the thread? Nobody's forcing you to read, or participate in it...

I agree, but as someone pointed out..... you had three or four headlight posts you started. Why?

Since you asked I will answer...because I knew it would generate a lot of interest, which it did, and it's turned into a good discussion...now I will ask you...why do you care?

Uh, Why are you complaining about other people? Why not take you own advice and ignore them?

It was deleted by the mods because they felt the topic would quickly deteriorate into something bad, even though my original post was within the site guidelines...

Because they clutter up otherwise good threads with their unnecessary complaining...

If you don't like my participation in any given thread-use the block feature. Nobody is forcing you to read my comments......
