With David not replying to his birthday notices shows that (in my opinion) Ford/FPV are not interested in contributing to the forums. They used FF.com for ideas and feedback, but now with the growing success of the Falcon they are shafting and shunning the forums by neglecting the very enthusiasts that stood by and supported them during the dark AU days.
To them it seems Fordforums.com is just like a disposable camera - take a snapshot of what the market thinks then throw away the tool that helps them.
As for DJR/Herrod issue, to me it suggests that Ford/FPV are a little scared that aftermarket tuners taking the gloss off their so-called "polished product".
For f@#k sake! aftermarket tuners have been doing this for years - from Lada's to Lambo's. If this is the reason for Flint getting upset then mabey he should instead look at improving the performance of his FPV's.
Forgive my skepticism, but we have one story from Venom and another from RPO regarding fords interest in FF yet very little in the way of evidence from either side.
Also we have had people from ford told that participating in the forums is frowned upon (murray for example, harasan too, although his case is understandable) so I am more inclined to feel that our purpose has been met and they are no longer interested in us rather that the oppsoite, so I guess if someone can provide evidence showing the opposite, I, among others, would sure like to see it!
Ok Mark, Now that you have brought it up you may as well tell us. I dont see any other reason why you brought it up except to stir up crap and get us going or that there was something.....and if that was the "case" why wasnt the planning organizers told of these said plans?
If it was "secret" then well you should not have brought it up.
