    3 to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant

    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety

    1 forum member will tell another to take his meds.

    1 to post that whilst Edison was indeed a theif, he stole the idea from a British engineer not a Russian one

    not so you'd notice
    Excerpt:

    Forums are to be taken with a grain of salt, because forum people are generally way deep in their particular obsession, which gives them a skewed idea of what’s easy and what’s not. A newbie might post: “Hey I think a piston shot out of my hood and then banshees flew out through the hole and everything’s on fire. Should I go to the dealer?” The forum regular will then reply, “That happened to me the other day it’s a quick fix 20 mins if you go to the dealer ur dum.” That guy’s signature will have a quote from Thomas Jefferson that wasn’t really from Jefferson.

    From the January 2015 issue of Car and Driver:
