Default Search engine killed the forum star!

Off topic and sung to the tune of "video killed the radio star". Searching is great, I've learned a lot. It's too bad that once communities of knowledge become established, people stop having to interact.

One day in the distant past people asked questions on forums.

Now people talk about Cheeta's, Indians and Bros in the chat box.

That's the point of the chat box, is to chat. And usually the bickering is about cars anyways.

It's why I spend so much time here everyday. The forums aren't always really busy. If I see a new post, and if I know anything about the topic I will contribute, if I don't, I will not say anything. No point in post whoring.

We still get threads of people asking questions every day, and usually there are at least a page of replies within a few hours. Sure, people can ask a question in the chat box, but by the time they come back to find an answer it is probably long gone.

I don't get what you are getting at. If you would like, click on 'user cp' in the top left hand corner of your screen, then click on 'edit options' on the left, now scroll down to the bottom of the page and click 'no' beside the option 'show the chat box'.

Personally the more I can learn about Cheeta's and Indians from my Bros the better. After all were not here to be serious all the time

Whoooaaa, ease back. My post was meant to be both nostalgic (inspired by a personal musing on the growing body of collective knowledge one can access on the internet) and comedic (inspired by the comedic things I see in the chat box) , not slanderous or offensive.

I have obviously read the chat box banter, hence my being able to comment about it. I did not mean to tie anyones panties in a knot.

Cheeta's do 0-40 in 2.4 seconds, and a top speed of 62mph.

I bet if he got NOS, 2 of the big ones, and double clutched like he should instead of granny shifting he wouldn't top out at only 62mph.



And OP, your first post seemed like you were offended by people talking about non automotive stuff in the chat box, and not posting in the forums more.
