Default Prius Envy- It's NOT A MYTH

Freud was right! If only he could live to see the day of the hybrid. As most of you visitors have noticed, I baited a troll who frequents the Edmunds boards as well as other Prius sites. He constantly makes negative statements regarding the Prius and it is apparent he has PRIUS ENVY. He has also deprived his wife and children of his company because he is so eager to write negative commentary on the Prius. This is his way of coping with Prius depression. I know this troll comes here too, hence I can't reveal his name. It almost sounds like a popular spreadsheet software.

Please stop trolling PriusOnline.com. Go back to the other boards.

Mr. DJ, you sound quite mean-spirited to me. Why do you feel it necessary to follow Xcel around the web and keep seeking him out?

I'm not worried about him being here and offering his opinions, even if he is an Insight devotee. But I do wonder about your motive for harassing him.

Are you stalking him?

Go to Edmunds and find out. Counter-inteligence is needed. Besides... I like to say it like it is and be obnoxious. Sort of like Simon Cowell. You don't like it... don't read it.

The Edmunds group has a very poor interface. It provides nothing but a single thread, just one that goes on and on and on regardless of actual topics. That provides fruitful opportunity to conceal vaulable facts and to twist the words of others. Also, their policy prohibits links to outside automotive/hybrid websites, preventing references to helpful content.

Needless to say, there is a small group of people that takes full advantage of that.

Here, we have a much much much more friendly interface and usage policy. That scares away those that like to twist facts and use vague references... because they know if you repeat something enough, people will eventually begin believe it.

Regardless of other websites, I still think Mr. DJ is being mean, and it sounds to me like his tone is intentionally inflaming.

As far as I can tell, Xcel hasn't done anything mean or bad on this website. Nor has he given any overtly malicious or intentionally bad information. I think I can trust my gut feeling, and my gut feeling tells me that DJ is a troll and a harasser. I don't need to go to Edmunds or anyplace else. I'm smart enough to use my common sense.

<Edit: Oops, I just read the update from Pete. Thanks, Pete!>

Yes, thank you to Pete for helping to establish/maintain a policy of conduct.

I myself feel uncomfortable speaking up at times, but we have to face reality. Change happens whether we like it or not. And the market for hybrids certainly is changing. So finding a way to deal with it quickly when that comes up really helps.

The messages here will remain a source of constructive content. Cool!

So djasonw immediately returns with more nasty postings as djwmvf. It's too bad that xcel fell for djasonw's bait. From the perspective of this board I would say that djasonw (et. al.) is the far more serious offender. I agree with BIF that we don't need to consult other websites to see the clear evidence here.
