I'd have thought this section would be thriving. I have had 4x4 Suzukis since 1980ish and would expect there to be chatter galore on this section.

This used to be a very busy site, with many users, but it was hit with unprecedented levels of spam some time ago, and most of the membership deserted and have not returned :(

Now that's a shame. What made this site vulnerable to spam?

Unfortunately, the signup routine was not proof against spambots. I guess it is now, because it has stopped happening, but the damage was done.

I have noticed a lot of sites like this are showing dwindling activity. :( I expect social media may be the reason but I don't know for sure because I avoid them for a number of reasons. :mrgreen:

It can't be because of the lack of cars - the roads are chaos these days - but then maybe I should get a Ford and see what the various Ford forums are like. :wink:
