    Any comments? Looks like a hijack . . speculating forum host Proboards had nothing to do with this since the re-direct is a vBulletin based forum! New Topic and Reply buttons have been removed. Forum link

    VERY suspicious heading message:

    I don't see anything suspicious at all. The forum admin moved the site. Full explanation here.

    Looks legit to me. I joined that forum back a couple of years ago, when I was seriously considering buying a Chinese 150cc scooter, and just see how long I could keep it going. Other things came along and it never happened. Might still happen though, I'm getting more and more things squared away.

    Did any one else get the email from scootdawg? I hadn't been there in a while. This is what I received:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What a ride these last couple weeks have been.

    I've noticed that when all this began some of you had gone to the "new scootdawg
    forum" but have stopped posting there as well as the original forum. That may
    be because you really did believe that the old place was lost forever. It is not
    so, Proboards re-opened it to us, and it is still up and going.

    I wish I was able to send a message out to each individual but it just is not
    possible, so this is actually a mass email to all that we have a current email
    address for.

    The light is on and you are welcome to come home.

    Doug

    I also got that email, even though I haven't posted there in over a year.

    Summary

    "and Terri Lee posts as a female on all of them. Did I get this all straight?"

    Unclear about the straight part . . incident . . judgment . . mugshot.


    Hope cookees does not get "wished into the corn field" . . .
