Default Why is Ford posting?

"Suspension, Brakes, Drivetrain" Not sure why Ford is posting a thread about a truck there. I understand they may be a sponsor, but starting threads is a bit much.



(Post I'm referring too)

This 6.7L diesel engine can tow up to 24,500 lbs in one haul, and it isn’t a GMC.



We're all gay miata owners anyways, so why would Ford even advertise to us?

I have already sent Nolan a message about it. It appears that it is the top message in all sections now.

That's what happens when a forum becomes a business.

I will drop my paying status if this doesn't go away. I pay to keep garbage like that out of my viewing for a reason.

Maybe Ford hopes to sell you a Testosterone Truck so you can tow your gay Miata to the track.....

I pay a ton of money (an order of magnitude more than any paying subscriber) to this forum and I'm absolutely sick of looking at that ****. Get rid of it immediately.

And why the **** do I almost always get a banner at the bottom of my mobile screen?

It is a banner that follows you so it constantly take up about 1/3rd of the screen, If I zoom in to view a picture the banner gets larger and takes up the whole screen.

I PMed Nolan about the banner on mobile devices. He said they're working on the mobile template... I guess that means they took something that worked and made it broken.

You should PM him too. Actually, every paying member that sees ads of any kind should PM him.

I must say, this pissed me off today too. It even has the nerve to put the little arrow next to the thread like you had posted in it. Trickery.

I don't subscribe (anymore) for other reasons. Such as being double charged back when phillip owned the site, never receiving any mt.net stickers i was promised for being a subscriber, etc. But if i did still subscribe, this would be the kind of thing that i would stop subbing for.

I got one set of stickers, then when the tri-color (red,white, and blue) stickers came out, i never got those. I was bummed. that is when i stopped subbing. i paid for almost two years. although i never posted, i sure lurked a great amount.
