INFO ON POSTING TO THIS WEB FORUM


If you are seeing this, you are in contact with the alt.autos.ford
newsgroup.
There are several automotive professionals om this NG, who will try their
best to give you good advice.
But you have to meet them half-way.

*Give ALL information, Car, model tear engine trans.. even if YOU dont
think it matters. Include ALL unusual symptoms .. even if you dont think
they are related.

*Once you post on a problem, put any additional posts IN THAT SAME
THREAD!
Which means as a 'reply' to a reply or to your original post... just like
in a 'conversation' THAT is why it's called a thread.

And if you dont see it as a thread, in other words ranked hierarchically
by subject, then date, CHANGE THE VIEW to 'threaded' in your account
setup.

DO NOT EVEN post binaries (pictures) here.
If you have pics, then post them either to a photo share site.. giving
the same url as seen by one 'not logged in' or post them on a binaries
NG.

Thank you for your cooperation

In "talkabout.." that means View by 'TOPIC', NOT by 'posts'

You're kidding, right? Or maybe you DONT know...

Go to talkaboutautos.com

or carkb

and there's numerous others that interface to newsgroups...

never mind that google has archived NG from forever, it seems.

Since you didnt know about that.. perhaps you also dont know that AOL
users no longer can get to newsgroups at all... not that it was ever easy
to do.

BTW, Ralph, turn on 'view headers' and check out how many original posts
come from Talkabout...
