Well yeah, I agree that personally I would have added "Porsche" on the box, if it were me marketing this kit. It's not really hard to do the extra typing when creating the boxart, after all
The problem is that most manufacturers output their product with a certain "group of people" in mind and don't really care about the others. Usually being dictated by the sales department or some other department concerned with financial results, i.e., not the people with the love for the hobby. So unfortunately all we can do is disagree with it and voice our opinion, like you did, even though it probably won't change a thing.
By the way, I think we were all overreacting a bit in this thread
me included. It's nothing controversial, it was just an observation on your part and things went a bit south after that. It happens sometimes with written conversations where no emotion or intent can be conveyed.
As for the "can't spell", yeah... like i said earlier, not everyone is proficient in English language. I think that is also where the misconception & misinterpretation started.
And finally, I completely and strongly disagree with what you said here : "It also remains true that far too many "comments" on posts on this site are from people trynig to be smart asses".
Simply because in all of the time that I have been here, I have seen no evidence of that. Instead, in my experience and if you give people a chance, they will try to help as best as they can, without being judgemental. There have been differences of opinion, of course, but that's just natural when a large group of people from all over the World gather in a single place. And it isn't a problem (for me anyway). There's nothing wrong with people having different opinions compared to mine and I also have no problem accepting that. Agree to disagree and move on without being resentful
But sure, this place probably has its fair share of idiots on board, just like any other forum. Can't be helped or stopped, it's the age of the keyboard warrior.
Anyway, I want to apologise (not just to you but to everyone reading this) if anything I have said seemed inappropriate because that is not how I normally act (at all) and what I am about. But I think (and hope) most people here know that already.
