Bring it on!

**How did you hear About us? If from another site, which one and what was/is your username there?
(and if you say "Google" what did you search to find us?)
momtown site via flylady

**Were you referred by a current or past member of Sybermoms? Who?
Nah, I just felt a kinship as I started to read the site

**How many kids? Ages? two girls 8 and 5

**What kind (brand, model, year) of Child Safety Restraint Devices do you have, and when was the last time you checked for recalls on them? Cosco booster for both/ up to 100 lbs. No recalls. Do not have airbags. Do not have auto locking belts. have metal belt locks which are attached to the belts to prevent the light weight from being rocketed into the front seats. Am currently trying to get local hardware store to stock the metal "locks". they don't yet. Try to kindly berate parents without boosters to get one. Abdominal organs are hard to replace ...

**Will you cry if picked on? Have you ever, at any website, posted a goodbye post?
who needs to have a goodbye post? I just delete the board ... :-) (I owned it)

**Will you join in and pick on others?
I never pick on others. I only point out their obvious egregious errors in logic and taste.

** Are you aware that picking on children and people with disabilities isn't very funny? Only the unaware and truly repugnant do.

** Are you aware that using the term re.tard, or any variation thereof as an insult does not make you funny or cool? It displays your limited imagination and a marked lack of class.
Growing up, this was used as a scientific term, not a social one; hence, insults never utilized this word. Horse patuey, however, was a favorite.

**If you heard of Sybermoms by "word of mouth", what is the one thing that stuck out most for you, about our reputation?

Do you practice the lovely art of sarchasm? This could be fun.

Practice Sarchasm?
I only revert to sarchasm when I am goaded, nay, compelled and coerced; dragged kicking and screaming through a wasteland of insipid, drivel-driven, putrid twaddle. Or just feel like it.
And I never practice.

Ooooh, I think you deserve points for bringing up those authors that I'm sure Spastic Cat has never read.

However, I recently learned that is it Jennifer Crusie, not Cruise. Funny because I'd been reading it wrong on covers for years.

Not that I read that trash. Much. Click here to enlarge

Did you know you are not supposed to use metal locking clips with booster seats? So please, stop spreading that horrible mis-information on the net.

And if you need proof, read your damned owner's manual for the seats.

No only does my manual say to use them, the boosters (full back, not the little bity butt kind) have FUCKIN' STICKERS on them to REMIND MORONS to use them. (not that they do)

And since you have NEVER SEEN them, don't know the car, have no idea of the weight of the child

SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT THE SAFETY OF MY CHILDREN YOU PIECE OF SCROTUM LINT!

Unless your kids are both under 40lbs and using the harness system, THAN YOU NEVER, EVER EVER USE METAL LOCKING CLIPS WITH BOOSTER SEATS!!!! NEVER!!

And it's dipshits like you that made me STOP doing carseat checks. So thank you.

I am delerious with JOY!!!!
You are the goddess I have been waiting for! You know more than the maker of the boosters (or at least the customer service rep), the industrical engineers of my car, and Officer Friendly at the Child Restraint System free check day provided by the State Patrol. (My state is so freking restrictive... it's tedious) YOU are the ultimate arbiter of the safety of my children.
Thank doG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If it weren't for YOU I'd be completely taken in by the National Transportation Safety Board and the CLEARLY LABELED WARNINGS on all the seat belts in my car.
You are my GODDESS OF SAFETY!!!!!! {{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}
You get on the phone RIGHT AWAY and tell those ASSHOLES at the NHTSA that they are WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!!! to have NEGLECTED to put on ALL their 2005 safety information that you are NEVER to use heavy duty locking clips with boosters.
FOR SHAME!!!
You can start here with their current erroneous national brochure:
http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/people/inju...ememberYES.htm

Bestest of all my joys ---- "dipshit" I can't come close to expressing my rapture ....... your intelligence and superior vocabulary has captured my heart forever. Profound, profound.

I genuflect to you.

A locking clip is ONLY used on a lap+shoulderbelt with a harnessed carseat, not with a belt positioning booster seat. The locking clip is a precrash positioner only, used to keep the lap+shoulderbelts held together at the correct tightness so that the emergency locking retractor will kick in in a crash and lock the belts. The locking clip will most likely pop right off with the force of a crash, which isn't a problem, since the belt will lock.

Dear Scatterbunny:
The information I received from Officer Friendly (golly, and y'all thauht I was makin' it up by my itty bitty self! You guys are just the BEST!) was that since the car is over 10 years old, and has a FREE SLIDING continuous loop system, the locking clip is to ensure proper placement of the seat itself, as it can move around during normal driving conditions with this type of belt. The clip is to maintain the correct pressure/resistance to keep the seat in place so on the chance there IS an accident, the seat will have much less prior displacement and therefore be SAFER than without the lock.
Since he is the one who will fine my ass should I not take my children's safety seriously in this state, I kiss up and do as I'm told.
Between anonymous rants on the internet and a face to face with the guy in the ugly hat - the ugly hat wins.
Sorry.
