As a currently serving Soldier, I can assure you the Military accounts for its spending, to the penny. All of the Foci I have seen around here are Base model white sedans with the DCT, which I am sure they got a pretty good deal on them from Ford because they bought them by the Fleet. I also see Base model F150's that I mostly see for the people that acually need a truck. I see a few Fusion Hybrids around here with Gov tags on them.

I know every Soldier is accountable for their own gear. If I lose something that I have to turn in. Then I am held accountable for it and then I am charged for it out of my paycheck.

I understand that you had a bad experience and no longer drive a Focus, but trying to inflame service members that either have or are currently following orders as directed by their superiors in order to help protect your right to troll is probably not the best avenue.

Feel free to waste your time trolling the site, but there's no call for insulting those whom have had the courage to serve this nation. There is a reason you are so negativelt rep'ed...

He's a blithering thunderdouche, with no due respect to him. How he is still not banned is appalling to me excuse my language.

I get having a bad experience, but I don't wield that axe in every single thread for no reason. Him complaining wont fix his car especially since he doesn't have one.

Not worth arguing with people like him.

After reading this, I unblocked him so I could give him a negative rep. Thanks Duane

Well, following the rules of the internet a conversation always boils down to "Oh I was just joking" or "Blame the Nazis" (Godwins law, I suggest you look it up if you're curious)

Well, too bad we had soldiers die on both sides so we can have the right to make 'stupid' and 'inflammatory' and 'rude' and 'insulting' comments, so instead look at it this way - we are insulting you based strictly off your bad comments.

Playing by the rules? HAH!

I've never seen a single post by you that wasn't inflammatory or derogatory or insulting towards someone if not being completely off topic.

Now, seeing as how this is a Focus forum and you don't have one, just leave. Not everyone is going to be as kind as some of us are, just know that you've overstayed your welcome.

You do not have the "right" to make any jokes about the military B-Lou, these people fight for your', mine, and every other American's freedom in this country and many others, just because you had family that served doesn't make your joke right nor does it make it appropriate. You come on to this forum day in and day out to trash the Focus and the members of this forum, and now you are making dumb ass jokes about the military. I find your comments to be rude, tasteless, inappropriate, and just plain annoying. The mods are probably sick of your bull shit and are tired of the drama you bring to this site, and in my opinion they should just ban you. You don't contribute anything worth reading, you harass other members, and don't even own a Focus anymore. You honestly must not have anything else to do besides hopping online to a "Focus Enthusiast" site and Making comments that most don't care about. I have been a member on this site for over a year and this is the only time I have ever been irritated so much by one persons comments. Honestly go bitch somewhere else, because no one here wants to hear it anymore, and you have become a joke amongst the everyday members of this site.

I have not resorted to name calling but I do honestly wonder why you continue to show up here? You have lost the respect of most of the people on here, you feel that people bash you and get away with it, you don't even own a focus anymore. Why waste your time here? You probably can spend your time more productively than posting in every thread that is negative about the focus. Nobody at Ford that has any ability to change anything reads this site. If you actually want to create change do something about it, go interview people with problems compile all of the data and present something useful to Ford rather than a bunch of internet posts.

Its time to take the next step in troll awareness.. to stop feeding the troll.

The only point of trolling a forum is to elicit a response. Once that stops happening, a troll will look for another bridge.
