back to article Tesla forums awash with spam as mods take an unscheduled holiday

    Tesla forums?

    Does anyone still use the in-house Tesla forum?

    All the action is on teslamotorsclub.com and the various Facebook forums (all of which are incredibly active).

    While in auto-drive mode

    At last, we can gladly appreciate the internet at its best while the car has been set to self-driving mode and the 60" windshield monitor is spewing ads and pr0n.

    Are we sure...

    ... that Musk didn't simply recently discover a totally new way to make some extra cash: sell forum access?

    That sandwich is an abomination...

    Circular bread and two chunks of square (spam?) meat. Sandwich bites should be consistent, not a random game where some have meat, some have tomato and meat, and others are just bread.

      McDonald's unleashed a video once of how they film the burgers for their ads. One of the tricks was that you have to deliberately misstuff it in order to display all the yummy goodness inside. Given the look of the picture, the same technique seems to be at play.

    the company of other battery-powered buddies

    Sounds to me like the new advertisement program at Tesla successfully targeted everyone hanging out with Bob*. A **job well done!

    *BOB = Battery Operated Boyfriend

    ** = <insert job type here>

    "...would you like one of these pills instead?"

    With anything related to Musk, I recommend that you choose the red pill.
