My thoughts exactly!

You can tell by the content of the wording this guy is a bit "off". With only 12 posts, he already knows what 50% of the people on here think? And he knows we won't "get it", yet posts here anyway? hmmmm....

Also, anyone who says things like, "...(you) don't and never will..." are showing their ignorance, because you cannot possibly know what someone might do in the future.

And then telling us we don't understand technology.... Again, does he know who we are? Has he read the "what's your background" on all of us?

From his writing, I'm guessing he wasn't an English major, LOL. So, a dumb-a$$ in English, but a genius in "technology", I guess

Oh, and then "knowing" the guy's wife's Tahoe "never" got 25mpg.... Why not? He's saying his Tahoe got 28mpg with his "patented technology". Why couldn't experienced ecomodders & hypermilers do it with their methods? Oh, wait - because HE and HIS "technology" are the only possible way to do it. How silly of me.

Anyway, sorry about the mini-rant here, but people like this make it hard for me to keep quiet....

EDIT: Oh, the thing that "got me" to begin with - going on attack with his first reply to the first reply. Diplomacy skills similar to his English skills.

Of course, I could have missed it. So what is the patent or patent application number?

Ok so what the snake oil combustion enhancer?

Why are you so worried about toxic fumes in the PCV system?
You think they are going to poison your engine?

Wow, that didn't take long.

I went back and looked at the first page again. First post: "I am super smart & my snake oil doubles mileage, and that's the way to do it..."

Second post: attack - "you and 50% of the members here are idiots (basically), and I knew you wouldn't listen..."

Remaining posts: either "noted" or "you're too stupid on this site to understand what I'm saying..."

I guess as "Chief Science Officer", along with his writing skills, his other strength is diplomacy and persuasion. HAH!!!

Maybe his name is actually "Sheldon Cooper" - - -

I just did a quick google search for the - ahem - "patent number" he mentions, and it comes back to these posts here! HAH!

But also, it looks like he's harrassing the "Fuel Savers" forum now. And that post is so long-winded, it's probably longer than all the COMBINED posts he's done here!

But he wants notorized signatures that you're using his "patented technology" on your own initiative so he can't be sued into submission by the "evil oil companies" when their profits drop off - - - or some such nonsense. Sounds like it involves "mixing chemicals". - yeah, OK -

...Some people's children, eh?

Gee, sometimes I wish I wasn't so stupid, then I'd maybe know enough to jump on these kinds of "opportunities".
