"Nice job Tom. A fast slick post with a solid tip. (Sounds like ad copy for a spear maker?) Anyway, my only question after reading "social media tip #1342" is, do you know the other 1341 tips and can you recite them from memory?"
"Hey Ken, I wouldn't dismiss that "cuttin' videos" seminar idea with a "ha! ha!" to quickly. You, of course, need to see how it could be monetized and if it would be worth your while, but you obviously love doing it, so…"
"A great read Alpha Dawg! Written in your own inimitable style, always entertaining and educational. But really Dawg, don't you feel like you're "Howling at the moon"? You know when you begin complaining about how the big boys…"
"Mr. Little, I've noticed you been posting recently, but this is the first I've read with real interest. An excellent and precise guide to minimum requirements for a successful dealership, especially with the coming plateauing of…"
"Well Big Tom, that's some solid advice. Considering you've talked to hundreds of dealers about CarChat, and probably covered its sourcing, there's a couple of questions you're uniquely qualified to answer. And, no…"
"You know, Ralph, as I looked this over, I couldn't help but think, with your car biz knowledge, connectedness and entertaining "life experiences" composition style, you could have written something at least as informative and…"
"Good post, Big Tom. While that Google Patent illustration is more than a little confusing to an IT novice like me, and your "Check with your SEO expert...." and "Use vendors that have well-written code...." rely on what…"
"Hi "Big Tom," The worst thing about your posts is that, at the end, I'll read your bio and have this sudden overwhelming feeling of inadequacy. Come on, guy, do you ever even have time to go to the bathroom? Anyway,…"
"Hey William, I read your above comments and, out of curiosity, went to your ADM bio. Your page is definitely "stylin," but it's impossible to read. It's the first one I've seen that's "white on white." Is that…"
"Here you are posting again J.D. Wouldn't your time be better spent putting a "best practices" association together with like-minded IT vendors of your caliber from around the country? I mentioned this before and you seemed…"
"Sorry to hear about your hospital stay. I would have written sooner but I've been "busier than a cat covering it up." I went to the emergency room last August for "hives," (1st time in a hospital in over 40…"
"Humm, David. After reflecting on this post all week, I've decided to try and answer your $64,000 "Is the Internet an Enemy to (although I think it reads better with 'of') Car Dealerships" question. Let's…"

ADM is a Professional Network, describe: "Why should anyone do business with you?"
I'll make more money for them then I'll cost them, and I'll never once mention a selling price or utilize any type of giveaways, such as coupons, discount cards, etc.
"What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?"
Extensive background in developing and producing highly personalized customer follow-up and referral enhancement, first for myself for 20+ years and then for the reps and management of a small group of elite SoCal dealerships for 20+ years. Prior to that, I gained notoriety as a Limerick Poet and I'm credited with such classics as "I once knew a man from Nantucket" among many others. My one sentence business description "elevator speech" is: "We believe everyone enjoys hearing nice things said to them and we genuinely love helping people say them."

Not all of us may always agree with your comments and perspectives, but that is EXACTLY why your contributions are so valuable to this community. Thank you for all that you do to keep commentary lively and far from becoming dull.
