I know that lately, we've gained a lot of new members which is awesome and a lot of those new members are coming from other forums that may use vBulletin and their Private Message (PM) system. Here, we use the XenForo forum software which is (IMHO) much better than vBulletin. The "Conversation" system here is the same as the PM system on vBulletin. So if you want to PM another member, just click their username in a post, and click on "Start Conversation". To see all of your PMs, click on your profile and go to Inbox. Hope this helps.
Yep! Getting a couple of tires off the road and onto a soft shoulder can bite you in the butt. Been there, done that but I didn't roll down a hill into trees. Interesting that the Japlonik writer wants to paint the Motor Trend writer as a jerk that was hot-footing the car when he should not have been. Maybe he has a hard on for Motor Trend because MT didn't hire him to be their car tester and writer.
