    It might not count as "sports" but. . .
    I did not see any posts by/for car people. Clasics, modern, sports cars, cruisers, exotics. Whatever. I love cars and I love talking cars. I have not had much luck talking to people here about anything yet so, how 'bout cars. What you like, what you drive, what you want to drive one day, whatever. Maybe you hate cars. :-) That's cool too. For those of you, like me, who can't PM, IM or any other M, I can be reached at

    Dodge Viper! The most AWESOME car under $100,000.

    "For those of you, like me, who can't PM, IM or any other M,"

    But those people can reply to this thread

    On a side note, have to stop the dropping of the email/IM. Ads are pretty cheap here, only $75, more info - http://www.abestweb.com/advertising/

    Yup, and ABW has a chat room, too. You can find it on the nav bar above. There's a thread around here somewhere that people post in when they're heading into chat so others know to meet up there.

    How long did you wait for more people? I didn't see your post in the chat thread either.

    You just signed up literally 2 days ago and it's the weekend, it's usually slower. Hang around and people will eventually get to know you.

    i think it's been more than 2 days. but if you say so, i believe you. i am not complaining. i'm frustrated. as i said i was just hoping for 1, then another, etc. I don't have unreasonable expectations. I just, well whatever. i'm just trying to learn. as far as the "chat thread", i did not even know that there was one. i'll look for it. thanks.

    Just 2 days, here is your first post, on the 12th -

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=110196

    It's nothing to get frustrated with, like I said, 2 days and the weekends are slow. Also for me, I have no reason to call or IM people I don't know. Now I've talked to people here on the phone, have some on IM that I message but it was after I got to know them a little from their posts here. When you constantly drop your email or IM, it seems like you just want to recruit, might be a little pushy (frustrated after 2 days), which also might turn some people off. I have it in my head that if I emailed or IMed you, that you would just start trying to sell me on your business. Just relax and let people get to know you. You're more likely to get a better response.

    Jeremy, you've been coming on pretty strong. For me that is very off-putting behavior. But then I'm not the friendliest person in the world.

    Also this is the busy season for most of us and we don't have a lot of free time to chit-chat or meet new people.

    you are sounding desperate to 'talk'

    this is forum, read and learn. People will interact with you, but you have to change your attitude
