your a sick man seriously WTF and your a moderater of a fourm of rail enthusiasts seriously??
Let's have a look at this, shall we? I won't dissect the spelling or grammatical issues with your post, but look at the sentiment within. I refer also to your later post;
How am i a foamer for not getting a hard on about seeing some locos been broken up WTF?
I just find it distressing to see something that has served their owners so well for almost half a century have this happen to them, it dosent matter if it was a loco a truck or a ship whatever i know that this is what happens unfortunately but it dosent mean im going to celerbrate it.
If any of you blokes knew me you would know i am anything but a foamer just someone who appreciates a well built machine. the only thing that usually gets the foam going with me is some nice piece with a big as#.....
How am I sick for enjoying seeing pics of locos being scrapped? As we know, most locomotives end up being scrapped, and that's how it goes. Locomotives are tools, they do not have personalities, or characters. So, locos have been used, they haven't ''served their owners so well..."Just like a microwave oven or a toaster, they serve a purpose and are scrapped or repurposed when their effective life is over. Nothing that you or I might do will change the reality that these metal objects are scrapped. I'm interested to see the process undertaken to reduce locomotives to their components and materials. An intellectual curiosity prompts me.
How is it "distressing" that these things are chopped when they're no longer of use to their owners? Are you distressed when your DVD player stops working and isn't worth repairing? Do you suffer angst when the clothes dryer burns its motor out and can't be repaired? If you're going to be consistent, then you should be.
I don't know what you do for a living, but I'm in the rail industry. While rail is a interest, it is also my employment. It's important to be realistic when working with these pieces of machinery. They wear out, either by component or entirely. It's how it goes.
As for your surprise that I'm a moderator, even holding the views I've expressed, why is that a problem? If anything, it's important that moderators are able to be objective about matters. If we're going to sob, wail, gnash our teeth and wring our hands with sorrow and grief when a locomotive gets scrapped, then we're not doing anybody any favours.
I must admit that I'm puzzled by your reversal of attitudes. You seem to attribute almost-human characteristics to inanimate objects. You speak of locos "serving" as if it's a choice that they make, or a noble duty that they give themselves to do. Meanwhile, you look at other humans as objects. You speak of other humans as being "some nice piece with a big as#....." If that's not the objectification of humans, then I don't know what is.
