    Why do people care so much about other people's motivations?
    • Why are you cancelling your Model 3 reservation?
    • Why are you not?
    • Why do you want a model 3?
    • Why do you not want one?
    • What are your reasons to get a Model 3 vs. Model X?
    • List your top 5 reasons for wanting a Model S (70 kWh or more) vs. Model 3 long range after mid-2018?
    • What would make you cancel a Model 3 reservation if you had 2 Model S's and a trailer for your Model X?
    • If your Model X was at Tesla service would you cancel your Model 3 reservation if it was Tuedsay?
    • Why do you read these threads?
    • Are you unemployed or just have 50 hrs/week of free time to waste?
    Who the flying hell cares...

    Seriously, I think it's the same reason people post pictures of their dinner on Facebook. Boredom.

    My "why" thread is rhetorical of course and therefore the only useful one.

    I think some people who are new to EV’s are checkpointing some of their own assumptions & conclusions, Which is a good thing. Doing due diligence does not imply being insecure.
    But ultimately the main reason is that most people writing these posts are not driving their car yet!
    Once the deliveries start in larger numbers, The forum dynamics change.

    Oh no, don't encourage them. I can see them now, thinking "What if I were to plot Model 3 cancellation time vs. Model Y estimated release date. I might be able to decide what color to get!"

    Very insightful idea. A while ago I started a poll asking whether to create a poll about this whole forum's usefulness. But the results weren't conclusive so I didn't proceed. Its importance however was groundbreaking.

    People learn from people.

    You never know what you'll learn by asking someone else something.

    We all know what the worst question is........

    Why ask why?

    Please let this thread die an inglorious and ignominious death.

    Simple, Tesla employees may be monitoring the forum. They may not heed any of the suggestions or warnings but at least we tried to bring them up.

    Gives them the impression that not everyone here has been convinced and converted to a loyal fan.

    All I can think of is that it must be the Russians. They do everything these days.

    I dunno there's nothing to learn. It's not like there's anything else like a Model 3. If you have to come to a forum to ask others why they're cancelling in order to decide whether to get one or not, you have more serious problems. :) It may also mean you're considering a Bolt - which then indicates medical disorder.
