    Last fall. This board. It was discussed. Elio Motors mentioned the goal post movement in a release.
    The car, the factory, the demand, the reservations, the specs were all covered. They were there with a bucket for the money, and they were told no - come back with thousands of *contracted commitments to buy*. Go back to Start, and go %$^# yourselves. And the company, which is enjoined not to talk about the loan process, was moved enough to explain what happened, which normally they will not do so as not to blow the loan by annoying the ATVM people. They were ready, and they were told to get out and redo the process with all-new rules. Elio is now metaphorically reeling in shock. They need 65k raw reservations. After that, they need to, now, start a campaign to guarantee purchases to make ATVM loan people happy. That will be a brutal process that, even if successful, will drag this out another year. They will, of course, run out of money and customer confidence while the company dies, with the e-prototypes running around and final prototypes waiting for production. This was murder, kids.
    Ford still hasn't paid back any of the ATVM money, from what I've heard.

    Sounds like you're not happy here. Is that correct?

    Not sure. But, apparently, he's, a, BIG, fan, of the comma!

    He'd best be careful. If his message should happen to cross into EU zones, then he's liable to be hit with a VAT (Value Added Tax) to cover his excessive comma use.

    Did you ever wonder if people that use a lot of punctuations talk the same way?

    Why no, I never asked, i never thought too, but now that you mention it, I guess, you, and others, have a point, if it is, or if it ain't, how i, we speak.
    My Echo, requirers i speak with commas, she gets upset with me, and doesn't wish me good night. Also, texting with Seri, she too requires, that I speak with commas, and she gets nasty, when I don't, all, there, I've said it, and I'm proud. - and let's not- forget dashes- they too have a place- in our language, and, ?????, _____, !!!!!!!!,

    Quite possible! But he could've saved himself a ton of typing by befriending the ellipsis.

    "I didn't read and/or understand the Elio contract ..."
