    I realy think we need thread of a list of names of dealers and indys that have been useless or tried to rip us off
    I personally think that this isn't in the FORUM's best interest. The forum relies on donations and sponsorship to pay for running costs so I wouldn't have a clue who would pay the legal costs if the forum was to be sued by one of the named and shamed companies if something UNTRUE or not 100% true was posted?

    totally agree Rym, as an example recently Wrexham had to delete every post on their football forum as someone made comments that caused them to be sued, to much good info on here for that to happen.

    I'm no lawyer, but do not believe the forum is legally liable for the personal postings of forum members.
    I wouldn't want to be the one that takes the chance. There have been certain forums that have been handed a very tough time by it's members/public due to similar events in the past as some of the Moderators will be well aware of

    I have made Boostist aware of this thread so that he personally can give his opinion and assess the risk, IF he feels there are any

    Thanks A20

    I agree totally with A20

    While this sort of thread can be seen as serving the publics best interest, it is kind of one sided (not that Im saying ****** are good or bad)

    I have **** the dealers name out and please refrain from slanderous threads in future, however well intended they may be


    Because its Bimmerforums and me that will end up in court carrying the can
