They are definitely whiners. I posted my opinion (that i did not like their music all that much) in a thread here on AP.net and they sent an email to the boss of the company i used to work for to tell on me and complain about my criticisms of Hey Monday as well (still assuming i worked for that company and they were tattling on me). Last i checked AP was an open forum for musical opinions? And you don't need to go tell someone's boss that their employee didn't like your band and said so on a message board. No class.
That being said, Im glad everyones okay and it does suck that their van had such a breakdown, especially in the cold weather. I do wish them the best and i hope everything works out for them.
