RE: [DMCForum] Re: DMCForum Brand Recognition



VBulletin is a web-based message forum.  The DMCForum and DMCNews are email
mailing lists.  They're completely different animals.

I run a large forum and a large mailing list for other cars.  Each has it's
advantages.  There have been several attempts at web based forums, but none
have been very successful.

Rich,

Has anyone considered switching to a better forum? I'm quite frankly
surprised that both of these major DeLorean forums use Yahoo. I would
think someone would have stepped up to the plate to host a real
vBulletin-style forum by now. Yahoo groups are difficult and full of
annoying advertisements.
