I saw this awhile ago and it bothered me. What does her Jewishness have to do with it? Are you an anti-Semite, or just a big mouth who judges other people?

The fact you couldn't get others to completely see things your way in this thread bothers you...

Other people's opinions of you, bothers you....

The government you fear, bothers you...

Your own reflection bothers you....

LIFE bothers you.

 

Get off my nuts, chump.... If I gave enough of a damn, I should report your lying ass for blatantly claiming I made a "passive anti-semitic" remark - When you're on here questioning if I am one....

Now go report this post too.

Since apparently, you "work" for the TA.....🤣

They likely got them/are in the phase of getting them. The demo XE60 is supposed to arrive in September/October, with the production buses coming in November/December.

Mr. Man already knows this stuff, obviously ............

Even while "surveying" the Montreal transit operations (and no doubt giving his invaluable input), he's got his finger on the pulse of NYCT and MTA Bus.

I've got a finger for someone's pulse ... just sayin'

If it were the case, this shouldn't have even been a Question in the first place. Just go and find out, and try to speak about something Productive that would invite people to join in on the conversation, but unfortunately it feels like if he's just giving us Homework for us to Investigate in these Depot's somehow to try and find out.

Surprised ... and not surprised ... @B35 via Church posted this.

Anyone from 'round these parts really knows "B35" doesn't need to respond to something so petty. BUT, setting things straight has to be done, and B35 won't shirk from that.

Let this be a serious lesson to you @Uncle Floyd Fan. Yeah, purposely bolded and underlined.

You really walked over the line, take it as a lesson.

Next time, your ass is grass and I'll be the one riding the lawnmower. And I know how to cut everything evenly -- no missed spots.

yeah to make more inaccurate review videos filled with assumptions & gobshite, attempting to speak from a place of knowledge. I'm not contributing to the delinquency or charade. #FiyahFiDat

Just want to say, I've got no personal axe to grind with Mr. Man. Haven't watched his "videos" or really paid attention to his wandering babbling.

But when @Cait Sith calls out a post hyped by Mr. Man that contains Shane's OWN work uncredited and no caveats are offered (even something like, "I'll get back to the creator because that's just not cool"), it says a lot by omission.

Yeah, minor shit like that matters to me, reputation-wise.

It's good you called him out, but I will state this in a Generalized sense. It sucks to see how many of these peoples' hard work gets used by some shitter full of flaws and Inaccuracy, especially when its bloated with people who are just wannabe's and have little to no transit experience, rather than foaming whenever they are riding the bus with their mommy. They think (MTA) is about the stories, looks, and fun. But this Agency is an Integrity which you have to dedicate your time to, and craft your best. @Cait Sith @SevenEleven @Flatbush SBS Duece @East New York @The Real @EastFlatbushLarry @Lance and others are people that have to be thanked and credited for their work, and honestly people here have to comprehend their lives and how busy they are day in and day out. These people gift us with their knowledge and Information, and unfortunately people here take it as a demand. This foaming, speculation, and distortion of Information is really damaging, especially to the credibility of the source. Like I understand where some people come from when they feel restricted to make their speculations, but the problem is we have people here of all different ages and walks of life, and there are people who may take the speculation unfortunately as a fact, and when that speculation is taken as a fact, it is spread around the Internet like wildfire, you could say the most exclusive thing ever, and in less than 30 seconds, you'll see someone from here go to a YouTube video and blurt all of this out to more eyes. Like I understand, but the Moderators here know as to why they always say, "Wait and see." It is not because they don't like what people speculate here, but it is because of others who may take that unproven speculation as a factual statement and try to make everyone believe it as something truthful, and in the age of social media this is highly unavoidable. I feel everyone has to do their part, and try to minimize this speculation, because it creates a tough environment for everyone here, and when you have more people joining here, adding on to that speculation, it makes the Mods job worse because now a big influx of people convey into the unconfirmed speculations of a person, and it becomes hard to correct and contain. As for the mods here, they do a great Job, they work hard, and sacrifice their time in order to maintain an Informed environment whenever they are able to, and to help this place be what it is truly supposed to be.

It's mostly the younger enthusiasts making these reviews. I don't really get it myself(especially since they don't drive the buses they review), but it is what it is.

Personally, these reviews shouldn't be a thing. If you don't drive them or have knowledge of them outside of the basic information that's already on the internet, just don't put these reviews out(especially if you don't credit the owners for their content, or if you're using said content in inaccurate reviews).

THIS is EXACTLY what tripped my radar. and the fact that grown MEN don't lie about their employment, regardless of what it may be. only children fib unnecessarily... and i have to keep reminding myself that there are "children" here 🙄 God bless em... but i don't have the patience for them.

agreed. none of em have any clue as to the task of being a b/o letalone the responsibility of being in that seat. no idea of intricacies of those air brakes. smh there's no legitimacy to most of those vids... it's child's play, speaking from a juvenile mind... "oh, this model bus unit is a good bus because the engine 'sounds' good..." ughh, git outta here! I'm not saying a person can't have an opinion, but, and i stress this, do not offer so-called opinions based on alleged, second or third hand opinions, offer them as your own and attempt to repeatedly speak from a supposed place of knowledge. people in the know see thru that s**t. and don't cry that people are haters when you're called out on your bull. in the hood, if you're a poser, claiming a gang, you get G-checked by members. if you claim have served in the armed forces, others will check you. same rules apply with city/state employees. pull that crap with other dumb children, but don't bring that to grown ass men.

Thank you for this, and finally, someone who actually gets why some of us say "wait and see".

appreciate the statement. key word: distortion. people who are in positions of higher knowledge (be it a @East New Yorkor others) for obvious reasons must show discernment regarding the release of "relevant" info... it's a level of maturity & responsibility that comes with experience. just because you can blurt some things out, doesn't mean you should. there's alot of irresponsible running of the mouth as of late due to entitlement, as you explained. everyone feels that they're entitled to a podium, be it social media or widespread immaturity, i can't call it. but, i personally, take enough pride in myself and my employment that i can't sit idly by and "allow" certain levels of disrespectful behavior to gain traction. nothing was ever "given" or gifted to me on this job. even at graduation, my badge wasn't given to me... i EARNED it! every piece of knowledge I've gained or shared, even in the most moderate way, i earned the right to know what i know, to be in a position to be in the know. what's missing in these so-called op-ed blog video reviews or whateverthef**k is the pride & confidence that is obtained thru dedication & hard work. i know if individuals that don't work for transit (and may not have a desire to) release info, reviews and opinions based on fact and can speak with pride & confidence because they put in the work to know what type of engine is in a bus, how that engine works, how it's supposed to sound when it's working properly or improperly, etc. i take high offense to anything that is slapped together just for the sake of a person hearing their own mediocre voices pontificate incessantly without direction or discernment.

Yeah, you guys really go through a lot as Bus Operators, and I have seen by experience the things you guys have to put up with, and the stress of having to do multiple runs, interlines, sometimes cover the Extra list, but the shenanigans brought by these Immature kids is just unbelievable how they try and sell this to others. Like I think @Cait Sith saw a review that "The Man" boasted all of us to watch here in the Forums, the review was by a user Sonic57053, that is just a clear example of how pitiful and inaccurate Information can be taken as a fact by people who don't have the common sense or knowledge of the Inner-workings of the (MTA) Itself. Rather should I suggest they'd be crying right now if someone told them the truth of how credible they are in being completely false on almost everything they post. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised to see them say something extremely ridiculous at this point.
