This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

There lies the trouble though... by gozer
"a day", at shop rates, may well be 900 bucks...
Hell, I've got a guy with a truck that from 20 feet away looks like it has a few scratches, but he got hit by the unluckiest motorist ever to the tune of about 8 grand to her insurance company (bent the frame, ripped off the trailing arm attachment point, bent the rear differential housing to the point the truck will likely never drive straight again, and looks like it has a few tiny scratches in the paint. Part of the problem is it's a truck that was never actually imported to the US, and so all the replacement parts are coming from England. Another part of the problem is that the truck was built in England.)
