Slimlavud, this is a public forum so anyone one here can comment on anything they feel about. You have the opportunity to either not use the forum & ignore anything anyone has said, or you can put across your side of things, however, you can't have it just your way, this is life i'm afraid.

We are Citroen Bx afficionados on here, & we normally cut through the shit shall we say, some are more eloquent than others, but it's never normally personal or malicious, its observations based on information that is in the public or personal domain. If you feel that you have been wronged, ask a moderator to have a look & they will either lock the thread or delete it, but thats down to their discrection.

I have no views on your car as i'm not in the least bit remotley interested tbh, i would however if someone i knew bought your car & it was not as advertised, then i'd have plent to say, well this is a forum afterall :wink:

I'm keeping an eye on this thread, but I have no intention of locking or deleting at this time.

Thoughts have been aired and I have to say, I'd be fucking livid if I bought a car on the bay with faults that were known about and not disclosed in advance.
Ok, it may not be the HG on the way out, but maybe in the interests of openness and honesty it may have been more helpful to say that it *could* be?

^That makes me realise that having a generic nick is a damn good idea. I wonder if the internet will become so all encompassing that eventually it will evolve into a second existence (or maybe it's happened already and we're already in a parallel reality, destined to repeat ourselves for all eternity?)

Real life doesn't actually exist at all mate, so technically it's all a game, only, on the internet, it's a game playing another game..
Tic Tac Toe anyone?
