“hazing for a new member.”
" I made a post as far back as 2010, even though I signed up earlier than that, so I suppose I’ll take that as a compliment.
“If the post you have now was your original post then I’m sorry. If you have edited it in any way then my statement stands.”
I edit my posts like anyone else would (and should), and I don’t really pay attention to or keep difference copies to follow when I specifically edited it and what it said prior to or after any specific user’s comment. At this point I can’t even recall what this thread is about. If anything, I use
strikeouts. I’m not sure what else you are suggesting. It might not matter anymore though because  the original thread is back (thanks to @cdaquila ) and  interestingly, the Google cache link I had is now “404 - not found”.
anyways, hopefully we can all get back to discussions about car repair and maintenance now.
