you're on a roll man, I'm agreeing with you yet again!

I appreciate the efforts that international users put in to communicate in English where English is not their mother tongue, kudos to them

on the other hand, I despise those that clearly has the ablility to communicate properly, instead choose not to, and type in shitzzz likeeee diz and dat and yo yo yo, ya feel me

I hear ya, and I never begrudge an international for trying to learn and type in English. It seems a mighty difficult task for many of those living here to master the English language, let alone learning it as a second! I was talking about people here in the US, but I guess I should have made that more clear.

"I make $200K - Can I afford a 335?"

The above is the worst, IMHO.

If English isn't a 1st language that's fine. They are trying the best they can. It is the slang like what Canucklion pointed out that drives me nuts.

I'm guilty of the color question though, hard to decide when you may not have had the opportunity to see the colors in person. So, You're left to asking questions that folks seem to think mean you're simple or mentally deficient. When in fact you are trusting them to provide a fair reasoned opinion of colors they have, or have seen in person.

A LOT of BMWs colors simply do not photograph well, most of the Metallics in fact just do not really offer up everything in a photo. Not that it Mattered in my case...

Otherwise, the weirdest thing I've noticed is the unbridled Arrogance on display by some owners. Call it "expertise bleed over" but it's a problem in many professional fields. Especially in the 3 series Demographic it seems. Simply forgetting that expertise in one field doesn't mean you are an expert in life and the world as a whole. Remove the social constrictions of the corporate world and it's all over.

Well that and a Bunch of Alpha Male Chest Thumping Bullshit and forgetting that it's just a car, a Nice Car, but still just a car, and just the internet...

i picked other since there was no option for all of the above.

i also find annoying is that answers for some things can be found with a simple search.

#1- I'm not so fond of people posting pictures of some hot little Chiquita and trying to pass her off as their wife or girlfriend.

#2- Hate might be a bit harsh, but how about polls about hating things?

Edit: I hate that I read this whole friggin' thread!

Worst Question: "Why do people get/not-get option X?"

All it does is incite people. Get what you like; whoTF cares.
