perhaps if I try to calm the waters a little here and point out that all of what was posted by russ was info avaliable to anyone, from their local dealership, this being the case we felt that it could not hurt if it was posted on ff. Unfortunately we were incorrect, and ford asked for the info to be removed. Due to the relationship we have built up with ford over the last 2 years, which we have benefitted from a great deal and which enables events like the raid to occur, we complied with their wishes.
As for the disclaimer at the bottom of the forum page, it exists to protect both us and ford if it didn't exist ford could well land in strife for something said on these forums that it doesn't endorse but because people see ford in the title, feel that ford endorse the comments, and then seek action against ford, who could then seek action against us.
Overall I don't think the occasional removal of embargoed information, is a large price to pay for the relationship we have with ford and the benefits we enjoy from it.
