Threatening to contact lotus because you 'are being blocked' before anyone has a chance to help your situation, not soliciting any assistance in case it's user error and then calling Randy out when he's probably not near a computer, and you don't think you're being an a-hole?

I suggest recalibrating exactly what you think you're being, because you're toeing the line from my perspective.

Best of luck selling that S260, I hope your attitude is better in person!

Why is this dealer swearing over an internet idiot-novice problem?

There is more than one way to load/display images here.

Yes Vishus this is a Lotus lover's site. I dont own a Lotus......yet, but....I do have all of passion for these cars. My intentions here were to just show new product and assist anyone that was interested. My thread has had over 10,000 hits so I think people are interested in the Lotus' I have for sale. When our S260 arrived yesterday I was like a kid at christmas!! Very excited! BEAUTIFUL car!!......then.......ISSUES with posting pics, I dont understand? If you guys want me gone, no problem. Still debating whether asking the Admin's to pull my thread...but at the very least Im probably not going to post anything here any longer. So you win....Im 'tapping' out!

DaveR...Here is what you could have done:

Upload your pictures to the zillion sites out there (Picassa, Yahoo, Photobucket, Flickr, Shutterfly, Bubbleshare, Imageshack etc...Sure forgot a few) and then simply post the link in your post...Tadaa and voila! Nobody here said go away I think...If you do not want to post here anymore, your choice, nobody else's.

And Yes you were correct LT is the site for all passionate Lotus things and all. You can always find another site. And yes passion and reason do not mix well.

Hope you can share these pictures with us soon....

I still don't understand the statement that this is a dealer site.

Far from it...the way I understand it is that dealers, as a courtesy, can participate and freely advertise to this tailored audience - but I don't believe Lotus Talk (formerly Elise Talk) was ever put here for the purpose of just selling cars for Lotus. Otherwise, Lotus would have their own site like this. And if that were the case, then it would be impactful and appropriate to go to them and complain. But that isn't the case.

I get the relationship here and what a value a forum like this can be for both the product manufacturer and buyer/owner - but there is a bit of professionalism that needs to be exhibited by representatives of the manufacturer when it isn't their site.

Also - just to add to what mcoupe said - another thought would have been to upload the photos on Rothrocks own site then paste the images here from there or link to the car on the Rothrock site. Just an alternative that might have possibly driven more traffic to your site.

Dave - I don't speak for the forum but I think as enthusiasts we all want Lotus to be successful and sell as many cars as they can - I think where I am lost is the attitude and seemingly immediate defensiveness exhibited. According to the time stamp I see - this was around midnight - I mean come on?

Rothrock

I live in NC and have issues with Rothrock. Terrible repaint of the front clam on a 05 Elise. Dave said he would take care of the situation but four emails and a few calls never got a response. Oh well. I at least I do not have to deal with them. I was actually told over the phone by one of Rothrock's top people that "Hey man, I know I am an ***hole. I have been told so repeatedly."

I suppose all of the above is simply par for the course...

Really, you want to maintain a semblance of professionalism since you represent Lotus.

Me... I don't need to.

Bite me.

I also do not do the bidding of Lotus either.

The main difference between Lotus and I, is that they read your threads. I do not. I have already spent more than enough time trying to help you. As have other moderators.

You are much nicer than me. :) Yes, I did not see any of this. I would not except another moderator pointed out that my name was mentioned.


For what it is worth, there is absolutely no reason he can't attach an image. His user status and settings are identical to anyone else's. He is not even given the special sponsor tag or anything. Oh yeah... that is right, he is not a sponsor. :)

Can someone else do me a favor. I can't test this as I have special rights in all forums. Can you attach an image in this thread. Any image? Just to make sure there is not some forum glitch?

My guess is operator error. But we should rule out anything else first.
