Trying to be smart and fucking it up with spelling mistakes. Good job. All he asked is that you introduce yourself. Now you’ve come across as an arrogant ****. Good luck with gaining the followers you wanted from this forum now.
Doesn’t have to be on a forum. If you came to me in work or on the street asking for help and support with a **** attitude like that I’d tell you to go **** yourself. As would many people on this forum believe me
try posting here http://www.scootercommunity.co.uk and good luck getting in the press, it took nearly a week for the InMoto attempted robbery to get press coverage and they had mental video footage to show and it still only got 15seconds on the local news.
Accepted that the OP does come across as a bit of an arse BUT this tedious bollocks about making sure to say hello to the forum first? Why? There’s plenty of people in this community who don’t go to the meets and the ride-outs but are still just as much part of the community. We ride bikes and we live (for the most part) in London - that’s the family connection.
Now granted he was being a bit idealistic about getting a stolen Vespa noticed in the press but the response of “would be nice to make a post in the newbie section tho” smacks of smugness and is far from welcoming. And it’s a pretty common response from some posters. Can’t we just post anonymously? It’s up to us as individuals who we decide to help, we don’t have to know the poster beforehand.
Not only motor bikes, about 20,000 bicycles get stolen every year and their owners want a cop to investigate them also.
It will only get worse as the MET is looking at a reduction in funding of £201m in 2011/12 and £537m by 2015.
You need to rewind a little - I’m saying that it wasn’t a valid point in the first place about him needing to post an introduction first. Chicken and egg. If that (non) valid point hadn’t been made in the first place then he wouldn’t have acted like a spoilt brat.
