Default CSX Sucks- Dont forget that

Hahaha just kidding. Found this site while wading through some google results for CSX


http://csx-sucks.com/

Who ever this loser is, he has way too much time on his hands. This belongs in the checkout line tabloids.

I have seen that site many times before. You can't please everyone. I would be my left nut it was created by Not In My Back Yard (NIMBY) people.

The owner of CSX-sucks claims to be a distraught woman who lost her husband in a train wreck. If you really put your mind to it, it is quite obvious that it is NOT a woman. Furthermore, most photos displayed on this site are either not CSX material, or are photoshopped. There is a photo on there of a CR engine spewing flames. Nothing in this photo indicates CSX ownership, and yet, it remains on that site....

This web site is alwaysrolled out, it seems, by NIMBYs. I have seen it twice concerning an intermodal yard that was first proposed for Catawba, SC and then for Chester. The NIMBYs won in both cases, mostly because CSX woujld not fight their fear with facts, but rather caved in.

I'm sure if you go through their web site with a fine tooth comb, you will find a few examples of, well, intellectual dishonesty.*



It looks pretty damning of CSX if you don't know anything about it. In fact, it's a pretty popular picture on this web site, the most popular, in fact.

On this page, http://csx-sucks.com/pictures/ the web site owner makes some sarcastic remark about it being the rivers fault. Well, two things come to mind --

This was actually a former Southern Pacific trestle, now UP, and, I'm guessing, UP crews. Second, there's no indication who took the shot or if the photographer sent it to the web owner.

I'm guessing if we knew the truth behind all ofthe pictures, some were clearly not the fault of CSX, while others are blown out of proportion. Truth is, accident do happen on allrailroads. Some are clearly the fault of the railroad,regardless of who they are.

Whoever is behind this web site has an obvious ax to grind and should not be taken seriously.

Here's the "fine print" on their pictures page http://csx-sucks.com/pictures/ --

So is an MPEG video, or a recording of a crude supervisor.

To submit a picture just or e-mail it along with a brief explanation to: Pictures@CSX-Sucks.com

The fine print:

All picture(s) are the property of the party submitting the picture(s) and by submitting picture(s) that party waives all rights of ownership; ownership of the picture(s) becomes the sole property of CSX-Sucks.com upon submission.

There used to be a site called watcocompanies.org which was a site completely bashing Watco (they even photoshopped Watco's home page menu and changed it to show bankruptcy, divorse, etc.), but it appears as though Watco won a battle over it, considering it now redirects to watcocompanies.com, which is the real Watco home page:

What the hell do those pictures have to do with CSX?! I'd like to see CSX and the FBI get into this........

Is that even legal? I wonder how much he spends just to host this site?!

And, Jeez, that first picture is grain galore! Ha Ha
