Default Mistakes have been made.

In an apparent lapse of judgment I joined the Victory Motorcycle Owners Facebook page.

I have never witnessed a community more rife with general unpleasantness and...just...dumb. It's dumb. So...much...dumb. And just...yeah.

Regret. So much regret. I wanted to get into the community a little more. Expected it to be more like the forum here. Certain measures of civility observed. Nope. And a lot of people seem to think it's Yahoo! Answers. There are like four oil questions every day. EVERY DAY. Do this people even know about Google? And they all go like this:

"Should I use Victory oil? What else is good?"
Comment 1: I use (oil X)
Replies: 40 reasons why or why not that's a good suggestion, a mass of inaccurate info, and a number of opinions on nothing important

It's kind of a bummer because I like seeing what other people are doing with their bikes, and learning about new parts vendors and whatnot. Not sure I can handle the rest of it though.

Even at its worst, this place is so much more pleasant. You dudes are all right.

Rant over.

So much to say, so little time.

Yeah, you know what they say. Opinions just like a$$holes, everybody has one and most stink. I stay away from facelift. Nothing but frustrated journalist wannabe's there that I can see. That's one of those times and places when the best advice for most is : Better to be quiet and have other's think you're a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

And @PaiN , dude, you just might be a wee bit too special. If that's you, I hope you lost a bet or there's a very angry wife in the background making you wear that outfit.

I use FB a lot but the groups kill me. When someone asks a valid question, right out of the gate the douche bags jump in.

To me that smacks of ignorance attempting to cover itself in the form of contempt. For those who like to use that tac, I try to make it fun but drawing them out, then squashing them like a roach in the middle of an empty room. My wife says I'm mean. I consider it entertainment. Hell, why not just say, I don't know, or better yet shut up and listen. Might even learn something.

I don't know is almost becoming my mission statement at my age. But, then, I've always liked to learn something new.

It's not just the Vic groups. It's EVERY group I have seen. It's not even limited to the groups. Just try posting ANYTHING whether it be religion, politics, guns, etc. Instant shitfight. Both sides are 100% correct and the opposing side are worthless douchenozzle morons.

I deactivated my FB account last week. I don't need the distraction and my productivity at home has actually increased.
