i guess this car is just too much to still be an alfa.
I'm just waitin' for my 401K to upswing a bit - you got 20 years.

I see an apology, but it isn’t for what got you in trouble… Don’t think that playing dumb will somehow cause us to think that we mistook your insults. You posted:
… you alfa guys either dont really like the product, or all think its too high priced …
… i guess this car is just too much to still be an alfa.
… cant afford the 8c....
… the car is too much for alfistas too. either that or you are all too shy.
First, no one has to put up with insults. Second, it is utterly illogical for you to even suggest what you did about BB members when they are doing exactly what you are doing. That is, they are not taking the “offer” you refused. It is even more illogical to assume that if you think the car is already over priced and not worth the money, then someone else is going to pay you more money, so that then they can go and over pay for a car that isn’t worth the money. Now, note that I am not saying that I believe that the car is over priced and not worth the money. I’m just saying what you said is your position, and noting how your logic can be applied to yourself. (That’s also what my “tough” responses did.)

There is absolutely nothing wrong or inappropriate in posting a For Sale thread and trying to “make a few bucks”. There is everything wrong and inappropriate with posting offensive “conclusions” and make no mistake, your insults, and nothing else, were what elicited “tough” responses.

In any event, this BB is about a community that shares a passion for Alfas. If you wish to participate at any level, and post without insulting, you will have a positive experience.

but i will take your advice, no need to hang out here.

Quite frankly, I read your second note as a little condescending - seemed like you were dumping on people here for not stepping up and buying your contract. In my opinion, Enrique was just responding in turn.
