What's with the useless *****ing about other peoples vehicles? Penis envy? Or just money envy? Why not just let other people drive what they want, and concentrate on driving what you want? Does it somehow take something away from you that somebody else has a different taste in automobiles? The whole "Hummers are crap" argument doesn't even have any actual technical merit - unless you're trying to tell me that a HMMWV makes for a lousy off-road vehicle.

One thing I really hate about mankind is the tendency to clump in different groups - often ones where ones membership is determined by totally absurd reasons like location of the nearest soccer team or the brand of vehicle one drives - and sneer at anyone not in the same group. "You're not like us! You're different! Baaad! Baaaaaaad!"

Oh well, at least you lot aren't (at least yet?) trying to outright ban Hummers like the eco-hippies... That's something, at least. But the line of thinking is similar. "If I don't like it, nobody else is allowed to, either."

One final thought. Your attempt at obtaining members for your little holier-than-thou group would probably work better in a forum not dedicated to the most underappreciated Jeeps in production. See, we're different here, too... We drive MK's, which, as anybody who makes snap judgements based on the appearance of a vehicle will be quick to tell you are "useless". Probably not the kind of folks who are most enthusiastic about petty tribalism. Or maybe it's just me.

.... and then the fight broke out!

Well said Tony and I agree but on the other hand many people have the need to feel like they "belong" to something. I let them go their own way.

I can understand wanting to belong. But one can do it in a positive way - to belong to a group that accomplishes something - just as well as in this kind of negative way.

And hey, I'm not stopping anyone from joining a mutual masturbation group. I'm just pointing out what they are.

My niece owns an H2. Every time she drives down to Cape Cod, Eco Weenies in their hybrids yell at her and flip her the bird. She just smiles and waves.
The closest that truck has been to being off road in the dirt in a camp ground parking spot.
I know others that do test the limits of their Hummers.
We can thank Aahnold for the original civilian Hummer.
Every 4x4 has its niche. There are obstacles that the longer wheel base of the Hummer can handle more easily that a short wheel base Jeep. Likewise, there a places in Uwharrie that an H2 is too wide to traverse. An H2 properly equipped is a formidable rescue and recovery vehicle.
And any Jeep can weather northern Winters than any car. Jeeps are also USV's. Urban survival vehicles. Potholes in Boston will take out those 20's on a BMW. But Jeeps just smile.
Hummer owner blogs have groups dedicated to trash talking anything that isn't a Hummer.
Trash talk makes the world go 'round ;-)

You should see the trash talk in motorcycle forums. This stuff is Pansie talk compared to them.
Motorheads that think they need to go 180MPH are always slamming my Buell. But then Buells are for riders that are know the twisities are where the fun is. And nobody does 180 on the twisties.

BTW, I taught my kids that the "FJ" in FJ Cruiser stands for Fake Jeep.
