With all the nasty talk lately has BON been taken over by LS1.commers?
I've never seen this much cranky behaviour on the boards before.

What do you guys reckon?...

Personally I don't care unless someone is stupid enough to try me. :D This is a great board and it can be moderated. I was hoping Ford people from other boards could use this as a common ground. Bon was always going to change as more members spoke up. I like the fact Bon has more people participating but at the same time it no longer feels like home. Just lately there have been language and expressions that have been unfortunate. I believe the future is this board as Bon no longer seem to have the breaking news that they were famous for. Is there a place for both forums, not sure. I hope so. I think this forum has scope to really take over, but to do so people who are on other ford forums have to join.

I thought that place was supposed to be a ford site, but it looks like it's a gathering of people who hate ford but own them anyways. Then there's the people who work for Ford and have problems with the company. I like this place better, people actually like their Fords.

couldn't agree more. In the australian section we were/ lucky in that running down of ford doesn't happen that often, unless it is out of frustraion.

I'm starting to prefer this site more and more. Especially after reading all the stupid debates about 347 strokers etc on the BON boards.

It's easier to navigate and it's moderated. I preferred BON when it was an ugly website designed on a MAC at least it had inside news on Ford engines and cars. Now who cares if Ford is using second parts or is in some dumb court case.

What was that all about anyway?

Ford people who hate Tickford? Give me a break!

The language has become too much for me. There's just no need for it. Plus there's kiddies who might be put off being Ford folk 'cause of the way people are posting.

Besides it's easier to get a piccie on here!! I'm gunna concentrate on this board from now on...

Thanks for all the great comments folks. The goal of this site is for folks to meet and talk about their Ford cars, learn some, teach some and have fun. the goal here is not really to give the latest on Ford, if we get something or a member psots it, GREAT! but we are hear to let folks TALK!

And it is a clever little board too. Sensorship on the run. It replaced my B***h automaticly. Wonder what else it does. Some Bon members posts would look like this "Some ***********************************"
:D
