You're reading too much into this post, and I think you have another agenda. I'm betting you've an interest in getting people to see that ad. Very cagey.
Good job Richie!! There's enough racism in this world without someone "playing the racism card" where non exists. That poster should be very ashamed.

Not sure about the "very ashamed" part though. The poster may just have been agitated by what they thought of as an assault or something like that and just used poor judgement in their reaction! I could be wrong or I could be right, but I'll let the reader be the judge of that!

Thanks folks. I have an aversion to being scammed and this such seemed too pat. All the intrigue to get you to read an advertisement. I'm glad the administrators got to the answer quickly.

I honestly don't know the answer to that. I didn't look at the ad in the paper. All I needed to see was the the original poster had four memberships and two of them were cart service related.

Icanfixthat is the original poster, associated with the competition.

The ad in the paper was for AGA, a 24 hour Golf Cart Assistance and Towing company.
