Well put!

I will not assign labels. Anyone that intentionally makes their vehicle noisy wants to be noticed. They will do whatever is necessary to get the attention they so sorely need. You can find this type everywhere. Anywhere from the campground to cruising the streets with the volume so loud that you can hear them a mile away. They belong to a group that simply needs attention. They feed on it.

You dont have to assign a label cause the comment says it all
Not trying to start a war here either - just commenting my .02

I honestly have to beg the differ on this one - My truck is moderatly loud due to the free flowing exhaust which actually get's me between 2 and 3 miles more per gallon which is a significant increase over what I was getting. I dont have my exhaust for attention - if they made a queit free flowing exhaust I would be more then happy to purchase it but they dont.

The one thing I hate about my exhaust is that at 2,000 rpm's I get cabin Drone and those whith the Hemi and an aftermarket exhaust know this very well

Thats the best time to go camping.

New Hampshire Super Speedway. LOVE IT
and even the race tracks have quiet hours where generators have to be turned off.

Someone pulling in a bit late at night. They still have to set up, and you'd expect lights on and noise. Many grounds won't let you in after a certain time for the fact of excessive noise levels.
We all gotta respect each other.

It depends on the county that you are in. Counties that are in large metro areas have emissions inspections. Rural counties, it is just a safety inspection, lights, brakes, wipers etc.

I have a diesel and they are louder than most. I have a Cummins and they are probably the loudest out of all the light truck diesels. I never come in late but I do bass fish and 99% of the time I'm there to fish and leave for the water at or before daylight. I have a programmer on my truck for the extra power and fuel mileage. I have stock exhaust for (for now). To get all the benefits from the programmer and to keep my EGT's down I am getting an aftermarket exhaust. I will tell you that the ONLY reason I still have the stock exhaust is because of the camping. I for one love my peace and quiet when camping. There are exhausts on the market that are free flowing and quiet and 90% of the loud diesels are loud because they are either too cheap to buy them or like someone already said, they want attention. The real funny thing is that 90% of these loud diesels are like a lot of dogs I know, (All bark and no bite) Respect is what the bottom line is and there ain't very much of it now days.

Pettiness is so relative......

I think we all were brought up by our parents with a list of etiquette 'dos' and 'don'ts'.
I'm not sure exactly where this list came from or if it even really exists, but you all know the one......... it includes stuff like:

Keep your feet off the dinner table.
No picking your nose in public.
Don't stare.
No cutting in line.
Hold the door open for the person behind you.
Don't interupt people when they talk.
No phone calls during dinner hours.
No excessive outside noise after 10pm....
and so on..........

LOL, I am not sure if I ever heard anything about exhaust pipes being mentioned on this list...........unless it falls under one of the other categories???
