I can't believe you actually listened to those clowns. But then again, you were the one who came up with the idea of using sandpaper.

I have a feeling this will be one of those threads that get linked on other forums.

No, not a poor guy. If your that dumb you deserve it. Doesnt take much brainpower to figure out that sandpaper isnt going to fix a scratch, unless you plan on repainting.

Actually, sandpaper is an excellent method of removing paint defects. Using 80 grit sandpaper isn't.

I recently had some paint problems that required wet sanding to fix. Using 2000 grit sandpaper and baby oil, I was able to completely remove the paint problem. Following up with a rubbing compound completely removed any dulling left by the sandpaper.

Wet sanding paint is a way of acheiving a better finish. Unfortunetly, using 80 grit paper dry is a good way to sand wood, not paint.

This all seemed like one big Hoax until you get to the end and he then says "he did it"

Too Funny.
