Your comment is in total violation of the spirit of this blog.

Ten. Words.

Not ten words and a 90-word comment.

See I disagree because my comment supplies factual data about the car. I don't think that it adds to my feelings about the car's qualities, rather it puts forth data that readers my find helpful. I would have done the same thing if I had not liked the car. Though I admit that I crossed over into editorial with the way I phrased the price comparison lead in. However, had someone asked me for this information within the comments and I had answered them in the comments the same thing would have been accomplished. I doubt that anyone would view that as a violation. I just cut out the middleman.

There's no "cutting out the middleman" if no one asked you for the information.

And if they had, I would suspect it was you anyway.

I view it as a personal attack on my character. And like always I am siding with beth.
