RE: [DMCForum] Too much Hummer bashing?



I said detest, not dislike.  I was not trying to sound arrogant.  It just
seems that there are fanatical people who are obsessed with hating the H2
for one reason or another, either real or imagined. It is those who seem
also to be the ones who would never in a million years be able to afford
one.  Take that site where people post pictures of them flipping off H2's,
you don't see Mercedes, BMW's, or other high end cars in those pics.  I was
only making a correlation, not a judgment.  A good example is someone who
loses out on winning a trip to Mexico with their family and says something
along the lines of betting the food would suck and the water would make you
sick.  It is that mentality that I was referring to.  Now those who dislike
it either thinking it ugly, the mileage sucks, or just plain don't like it
are being good spirited and having fun poking fun at me, which I can take.
But referring to my vehicle as a GM parts recycle bin, or that I was taken
because I bought it for hauling, or that I put more money into it than it is
worth, or that if I use it like a car I am using it for status, that's a tad
over the line.

I believe my tolerance to Erik's attitude was getting the best of me.  While
most of us are having fun with this topic, he has gotten a burr under his
saddle and decided to make harsh mean spirited statements toward my choice
of vehicle.  So far only one other person has lowered themselves to
degrading the H2, and his "facts" were proven inaccurate and he quieted up.

Again if it came out as arrogant, I apologize, that was not the intention.
