Something I Can Not Understand

Lately on the board we have had several members post pictures of their "Modifications" or "Upgrades". Posting pictures of your stuff opens you up to opinionated responses from what I have come to theroize are two types of members. Those that will compliment and praise no matter what just to avoid hurting said posters feeligs. Then the other camp those that post what they feel and truely believe. Hurtful or not its a opinion!
THe second type of member more often than not gets thrown over the coals as a hater or flame artist for posting their opinion.



What am I getting at here? If you get your feelings hurt and expect to get 100% praise for your work and creativity...............don't post your shit!
There are always gonna be some members that do not like your stuff. Even my bikes have got flamed away from time to time. If you do not have tuff enough skin to take the persecution with the praise. I do not want to see your shit!


Sorry for the rant I just have seen this quite a bit lately, it started with that green blue and white, spiked, neoned mostrosity and has progressivly been conscistent. Opinions are like assholes.........

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Exactly my point, I took shit for that and never cried and took my ball home If I post pics of mods or upgrades I do it fully expecting bad with the good. And believe it or not I have changed stuff based on negative response. (The 16.5 mags stay though, too expensive not to stick with)

I"ve said this before, the only way people will ridicule another person's bike is from the safety of their keyboard.(im guilty of it)I guess thats the nature of the internet.

Taken from another thread;

Ill share something i've found to be consistently true about messageboards.For reasons unknown, when certain people hate on other bikes/style/gear, they due so from the safety of their keyboard.Obviously noone will go up to another rider they've never met and begin the convo with, "you're a squid/your bikes gay/lowering sucks", whatever.

The interwebz provide a platform for people to live outside of who they actually are.

That being said, just ignore the bad and appreciate the good.If you need help with anything on your bike, and I mean anything, these dudes will provide more insight than probably 90% of motorcycle mechanics.Thats why I come here, cause as a collective whole, there is no better zx-10r website.

I hear what you're saying but more often then not I just hold my tongue is somebody's ride looks like ass or they do something choochy. That said it wouldn't hurt my vagina if somebody didn't like my mods and expressed it.
