I ran on some threads from April/May and im mad about how many mean people are in this hobby!! No wonder this hobby is declining because how many kids do u see around the tracks racing, not too many and if i would have known what some of these ppl in our hobby are like, i would of never started racing!!!!
Here goes about the internet tuff guys again, plz dont say it unless ud say it to there face!!! Some little kid might look o'er there dads shoulder and see something thts not appropriate for young minds.

Are you talking about people at your local track or just the inter-web clowns that are mean?

As long as there is an internet there's going to be idiots in this hobby. But I bet most of these people wouldn't be acting as asinine in the real world.

Yes they would, but they wouldn't be so virulent.

"mean" people are not the reason why racing is on the decline, here on RC Tech most of the guys are pretty cool, most of the stuff is all in fun, I have smarted off when I should have said nothing..and I've had people say stuff to me that I doubt they would say to me in person, but with that said I don't take "things" said to me to serious..it's just words. I can understand some of the frustration that some of the guys have, they try to give sound advice, good stuff and the person that has asked for the advice either will not accept the advice or keeps asking the same question over and over..

Idiots and assholes are everywhere. You just notice them more when you spend more time around them.

Listen to this story:

I did my first big race at Area 54 a few weeks ago and some d-bag who came on race day (didn't show up at qualifying) kept interrupting the driver's meeting to whine and complain because the announcer was not giving a verbal command to start the race and instead everybody had to watch a traffic signal and go on green. I mean this guy would not shut up and kept complaining and droning on and on and on throughout the whole meeting.

If it were me: First of all he wouldn't be racing because he didn't show up for qualifying. Second, the announcer and the track boss/owner were being very nice, reasoned with the guy but he just would not quit. I would've told the guy "If you don't like it, pack your gear up and go home". Then if he kept going I would say "That did it, you're DQed, get out".


We don't need people like that.
