    Default Diesel-Vauxhall.com

    I'm not sure if any of you are aware but there was a forum specifically for owners of Diesel Powered Vauxhalls.

    I'd not logged on for a couple of days, so I thought I'd have a look as it's pretty quiet normally. Here's the message that's displayed on the homepage -

    Yeah, so, ya know. Here is the latest SMF Forum Backup. Take it and do with it what you will. It might work, it might not. Oh well!! diesel-vauxhall_com_2-complete_2006-09-17.sql.gz

    Maybe you can start your own forum up with it.

    But hurry! This webhost account will soon expire and that backup will be gone forever!!

    Do not contact me in any way, shape or form. Thank you.

    Bye!!!
    I was a moderator on there and JonR didn't even have the courtesy to say he was shutting it down let alone tell the members. Nice one Jon!

    I'm starting to think he couldn't handle the grief he was getting from the plebs on VVOC

    Yes, I was a "Premium Member" on vvoc, back when I had my Vec-C 1.8 LS. TBH I think there's a huge "anti C" faction over there. Whether its jealousy or just ignorant prejudice, I have no idea. I don't have the need to post on there anymore so I don't really care either.

    Sad to see that a diesel Vx forum has gone but, hey ho, the best resource is right here.

    I really wish he had removed e-mail addresses and IP addresses before posting the forum database backup on the internet Now someone has re-created the forum on a new URL and sen't an e-mail to all the old members with addresses in the CC List so everyone can see I get enough spam as it is without these extra risks ... makes you think even harder before signing up for anything.
