Keep in mind you're taking that out of context somewhat. yomama69 was responding to your criticism of how ricey this board has become by posters that don't own the subject vehicle (BMW e9x) which he probably interpreted to be a little ironic since you then stated you frequent boards focusing on the discussion of exotics even though you own a Focus.

Don't get me wrong. I think you have every right to frequent and post on any board you feel compelled to regardless of the car you drive. Like I said, I don't judge anyone by their wealth.

I wasn't criticizing certain members based on them not owning a certain vehicle.

Where did I do that?

If you can't find it, I'll eat my shoes.

Never said you criticized based on the car they drive. Just that some of them are immature kid tuners that own a 1 series. I think that is what Yomama69 was basing his reply off of.

You mean if I can find it.

Well...depends...what kind of shoes do you wear? I may be more motivated to find something if you specify size/type/how old or stinky your shoes are.

Oh, makes sense.

Yeah a lot of us Focus tuner kids are always trolling Porsche and Ferrari forums. It's been a big problem lately.

NewSong - have you driven a EuroFocus? If not, plan a trip to England and rent one. It is an awesome car. Can't wait till we get it here in the US.

Would you believe me if I told you I didn't even own a Focus?

At this point, I take what anyone says on the internet with a grain of salt.

You're my new favorite member. You seem to be the only one who posted a comment who can understand and analyze basic English. Thank you, sir. You're a fine gentleman.

I'm going to respond to hypocrisy on these forums any chance I get.

OP: I didn't humiliate you. You humiliated yourself by bringing up the fact that you drive a Ford Focus amidst your post about posting on 6speed online. If you don't like what others are going to say to you, don't volunteer ammunition to them.

As for me, I don't give a shit how much money anyone has. I only care about myself and what I'm doing. Wealthiness is subjective. That being said, there's really no purpose to this thread. You're attempt to make me look bad only made yourself look bad. Your last 2 threads probably decreased your credibility on this forum.

Yeah...we might get the EuroFocused. But they should have done that a LONG time ago. Frickin' idiots running Ford USA just gave us crap instead of the awesome stuff they have in Europe. No wonder they are in such deep doo-doo now.

European Ford Focus RS. Now that...in say black...that would be good.

Unfortunately, the Focus RS will never make it to the US. How many people in the US will spend mid 30k for a Focus? I do think the standard euro focus stands a great chance to be well accepted in the US. It is absolutely a sweetheart of a car. All Fords should be engineered in Europe!!!

Random thread, first thought it was dumb then I got me to thinking of the richest guys I have seen around. I onced judged this software company guy's wealth as being pretty huge because he was driving an Enzo and at times has been the world's richest man. We were in my buddies e46 and I gave him a friendly wave and he waved back. I judged him to be not a huge douche.
