JK-forum called out by Four Wheeler Mag.

Hopefully not a big ol' R

Little background:
-JK-forum run be Eddie (wayoflife) believes in strict product censorship.
-If you are with a vendor/magazine/company you must pay his fee for sponsorship to sign up. Like if a guy name Bill from a vendor signed up just as Bill and not for the vendor he still could not post without paying because he is associated with the vendor.
-Some companies are listed as “black list” companies such as Poly Performance. If you type in Poly Performance and hit the post button it will show up as **** *************. If you post a picture of your rig or a link to any black listed vendors you are banned. I was banned for posting pictures of a bumper from a non-sponsor.
-Private messages are not private and are moderated.

Alright so on to it. Eddie decides to bash RE lifts (RE was a sponsor of JK-forum but pulled sponsorship sometime before this) and uses part of a quote from one of the journalist with 4 Wheeler Mag. Well the journalist attempts to post on JK-forum clearing up the misconception created by using only part of his quote but of coarse gets banned for not paying money first. Now when you read the thread on JK-forum the last 2 pages have been deleted after this came out this morning...

From JKowners.com
http://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3441

"thought this deserved its own thread, so check it out.

here is the response to the JK-Forum's Rubicon Express thread, from Sean Holman of Four Wheeler Magazine: http://blogs.fourwheeler.com/6300609...ond/index.html

Then maybe everyone that dislikes it should leave and join jkowners. The ones that stay are the same ones as on every other vehicle specific board. A bunch of thin skinned pussies that won't even allow different opinions and ask "will these tires fit" daily...

:edit: I bet there's a bunch of "those pirate guys are a bunch of assholes that bash for no reason and I'll never go there again" going on too...

I didn't think it would be problem to be listed here since it is on JKowners and that site is owned by this one... Maybe so though so sorry mods/admins if I broke the rules.

I'm not arguing that it's not I was just pointing out that jk-forum is something different than the jk site owned by PBB.

at issue really has nothing to do with JK's or board wars.

Eddies business practices are very unethical and seriously jeopardize the reputation of every forum on the internet.

he is a scam artist and needs to be run out of business.

i feel you have quoted me out of context to further your personal agenda of industry extortion and i am not going to stand here silent and let you continue to do it without saying something. And hey, it is your site, so do what you want and go nuts, but i should at least get the chance to set the record straight from my point of view. And you should stop selling your site to unsuspecting members as an unbiased source of information.

I'm glad to see they got called out - they needed it!

...There is a reason why I'm not on JK Forum and never will be.... And no, I haven't been banned.

Plenty of people have been banned immediately for even mentioning Poly Perf.

So, does anyone know what Poly did to upset them? Honestly I'm just curious since my experiences with them have been very good.

Just so this didn't get missed. If a person has an issue with a sponsoring vendors product and you send them a "private message" offering up a solution involving a non sponsoring vendors product, it will be read and you will be banned for mentioning a non sponsoring vendor's product.
