Regarding Other Forums
« on: May 20, 2019, 12:27:30 AM »
Have any of you seen an uptick in the frequency of automated "latest post" emails from other forums you're on or used to be on?  My inbox has been getting blown up lately by a bunch of them.  Anyone know why?   

I also never gave much thought to this but I'm surprised how many forums I've frequented over the years all seem to be owned by just a few companies and not individuals.  I'm guessing Facebook demolished the social side of enthusiast forums which always seemed like the bulk of a forum's traffic.  I wonder if we'll see a shift back because Facebook sure has it's unsavory side.

Why do the loudest stereos belong to those with the worst taste in music?

I don't notice only because the email I used to use for all for all forums is gone. But, I do hate how it shifted. Seems like things we're more organized when each specific forum was booming. I miss those days. ☹️

Yeah I have a few forums that are sending me a "latest posts" or "trending posts" email weekly.

I was not clear in my haste. I got emails from other forums I forgot which sent me back here. Wow the memories.

I still drive a modified grandpa car if anyone remembers me. I had a 2002 Regal GS with a lot of work done to it and I now drive a 2016 Cadillac ATS 2.0T with the Vermont Tuning 390hp kit. It is mind boggling how little time, effort, and money I put into a 2 liter Cadillac sedan to break into the 12s compared to the 3.8L Buick Sedan 14 years older. Haha

electronic boost control - three best words ever.

Times have changed, and most cars are fast as hell!
