Trailer Safety Advocate

Has anyone heard of Ron Meloncon of DangerousTrailers.org? Does anyone every watch this guys videos? He claims to be a trailer safety guru. But man, some of his videos, I wonder what is up with him. Take a look at this one. I don't hink there is a word of intelligence coming out of his mouth.

I just watched a few, and wow....just wow. This guy truly has an agenda against anything remotely trailer related.

Stupid video, don't waste your time and don't help run up the "watched" counter.... he's obviously not a camper and apparently has an agenda
against campers.

He was on here previously as a member (joined May 2010), hawking his web site quite vigorously.

The response he got was not what he was expecting and has not been back that I am aware of.

There was a recent episode on This American Life about a guy who anonymously tweeted pics documenting rudeness on NY subways. Initially it relieved his stress about it because others retweeted his messages, validating his anger.

He was popular at first but started to run out of new material. To keep it up he started sending unflattering photos of fellow passengers with mean commentary. Eventually he was outed.

He actually continued the mean content even after being identified. Apparently he found himself addicted to being followed by others. I suspect that, and deriving income from page hits, results in bad content.

An interview with a sociologist studying use of social media and human behavior revealed that people are more likely to follow or forward material that makes them angry, or mean-spirited content, than they would follow or forward material that makes them feel good.

Don't fall into the trap.

"If your not paying attention" wow. So if your paying attention and you hit a deer, will the air bag deploy and if it does, will it keep the deer out of your windshield? He sounds like an advocate of "excessive government regulations" leading to loss of constitutional rights to me.
