      Here, let me google that for you.

      https://www.verticalscope.com/our-verticals/automotive/
      The AutoGuide.com Group, comprised of over 640+ automotive websites, attracts the largest group of automotive shoppers, owners and influencers in the online industry.

      We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

          Right...

          OK I failed at making my point and that may be because I have alot on my mind lately...

          My thought that I failed to express was at the forums I noticed that VS owns no one on those forums are up in arms with VS taking control changing things.


          Or maybe they just have a tighter reign on the membership there.

            pirate was pretty unique in the community that developed.

            not many forums have people driving across the country to meet people on the regular.

            so I think it's just that we took it a lot more personally than most forums when they started to suck the life out of it.

            what we should do is start board wars and post the irate message all over.
            one message board to rulle them all, and fuck autoguide.

                Most automotive oriented ones have members that meet up. Another forum I used to be really active on, I met a lot of people that became some really good friends for a long time. I moved to Texas after coming for a friends NYE party in Houston.

                Same for a local forum/car club that I was in almost 20yrs ago. A few of those guys became my best friends, one of them was my best man when I married my ex-wife, I was in their weddings as well.

                Infact I've lost touch with a few of them and I think I'll reach out.

                    I got it on good authority that Austin is a Communist. If he sells it, we all get a percentage based on our tech participation. The chitchat hermits will have to pay a fee though.
                    Just kidding about the Communist part.


                    Not kidding about chitchat hermits paying though.

                      They do. I'm on another forum that raised the vs hell, and things got locked or deleted and a "stern" warning to stop bad mouthing the new owners. Still running the old software, so still hanging out there due to lack of options for that particular forum. However VS does not do much if any maintanence, they've been threatening the usual forum software upgrade, but that seems to be stalled out (fortuneatly). Every once in a while somebody will rattle the sabre. But just like old pirate, people are sticking around. for now.

                              VS owns a crapload of forums. Every single one they own has turned into a shit show joke.
