Some might say it is not business, but this forum is worth $160,000 per web estimates.
Maybe it is not big amount to invest in serious business, but knowing how much advertisement brings, the annual revenue can be several times the actual value.
I prize this forum as the most liberal I even enter and I enter quite a few.
Ron - handle GermanStar is MB part salesman, but you never see him making any business advertisements here. He occasionally mention in the topics what is having higher demand than others, but I have never seen any hardcore sale pitch here and I am very sensitive to any agendas, propaganda and lies.
Have comparison to Ford Truck Forum, where so-called volunteer moderators are hardcore promoters of gasoline trucks.
Those who knows the subject closer -know that it already that gasoline engines in heavy hauling is very bad investment, so those "volunteer" have to work very hard trying to make their points believable.
Fact is that nobody will tell you the truth and internet forums - just like any business are sold around and most of them are bought by a business who has nothing to do with cars and 100% with advertisement.
That said I no longer know who owns this forum and it really doesn't matter to me. Just Like I am not sure what banks carry my mortgage today - I set automatic payment from my account and whenever my mortgage gets sold to other bank - they automatically change the withdraw.
And yes, this forum does have its hate sites. But what doesn't ?
