Today, I write not of just any message board, but the car message board. The car message board isn't something that can easily be pinned down. You can have a general message board... you can have a brand message board... you can have a model message board... you can have an anti-brand/model message board... you can have a message board based on country of origin... you can have an engine message board... and so on. It really is an endless loop, rivaled only by the music message board and its variants.
With that being said, the types of posters who inhabit these message boards are finite. I present to you a smattering of them. As always, this list is by no means complete, but I tried.
- The Brand Humper
- The Chassis Nerd (Also: Engine Nerd, Model Nerd)
- Hacksaw Jim Duggan (Also: Ze German, Goku)
- The Tree Hugger (Also: The Oil Burner)
- The Noob (Also: Your Mom/Dad/Grandma/Grandpa)
- The Mechanic
- The Yeller (Also: The 14 Year Old Poster)
- The Unbiased (Also: The Contrarian)
- The CEO
- The Insider
- The Moderator
- The One Worder (Also: Emoticonner)
Like I said...just a sprinkling of what you'll find out there- I'm sure there are many more I've passed over.
