Yeah, some people are too thin skinned. That's a personal problem that shouldn't be put on someone else's head.You must have never gone into any of the MOAB threads when it came out then
Although to be fair, most of that was tongue-in-cheek and in good fun. But some people can't take a joke, and some people take it too far to a point where it stops being a joke.
What i remember from those original Moab threads was light hearted, like you said. Occasionally, there was a post that claimed it was just like a Rubi minus the lockers. Then someone would chime in to detail the technical differences, which had a tendency to be taken the wrong way and led to the thread heading south.
I think they should've kept the Moab around. So many people go the extra steps with Rubi takeoffs, so it was the perfect short cut for those that have no intentions of going bigger.
