That isn't a real forum go away

So earlier today some folks on another forum discovered that a forum was ghosting posts off an old forum that was abandoned by many of it's members after vertical scope bought it out, let me just share and make you laugh.Looks like someone was sloppy and forgot to change the quoted by in every post...


Oh yeh and please feel free to post this anywhere else you feel it may be worth a laugh/



This isn't a real forum go away

This really isn't a real forum. It is being ghosted of old forums that a company called vertical scope bought. They meke their money off advertising and they created this place so that hopefully you will click and add to their site visited numbers. its pretty sad.

if you notice I registered on March 23 2009 here, but if you do a search for my name it will pop up as if I am being quoted, then you look up for the post in which I was quoted from... Lets see how this works:

96 high res pics of the 2008 ZX-10

here is one, wow wasn't that simple!!!

Take note of the reply by pluto, back on 08-05-07, then scroll down to where you see mymixedtape33 replied, quoting this "derf" fellow who was apparently there when he was quoted on 08-08-07. Now scroll on back up to pluto... Do the posts seem familiar?

Just tyo show I'm not a complete whacko in that very same thread take a look at the first post by miatabak, then two replies down by fan7m3d where he was quoted under the name FZR600rider.


Lets play a game, can you figure out who is making to believe she is me (by the way I have a pee pee, not a who ha in the real world)?




If you guessed shelygirl76 then ding ding ding you are correct and you get a cookie, just walk into your kitchen and find one.

Anyway don't bother with this site, it isn't real. Oh yeh and here are some pictures of the original posts side by side with this forum, a quick search and they aren't to hard to find.

Re: That isn't a real forum go away

It's very hard to start a forum so this sort of thing happens. Use one forum to jump start another so to speak. People come along and see what they think is a busy site with lots of posts and members.... There are other better ways to do it IMO.

very true, a site should be built from the ground up because i think you would have a better respect for what you built, done on your own, with no help!!!

that's commitment

You need to build up your own client base and with it builds the site's credibility Like the .Org here

Do, or do not, there is no try !

Yes. Such as extortion and Black hat SEO.
