So Internet Brands Is Scared of MustangEvolution

Internet Brands owns MustangForums.com and is a publicly traded company. They seem to be terrified of competition though and have ceased allowing any of their members to link to other Mustang Forums. We ran into this into the past but were able to get it resolved because the forum was still owned privately. Anyway, my biggest pet peeve in business is being so terrified of your competition that you try to isolate your customers, or members in this case, from your competition by pretending they don't exist.

Basically, you are telling your customers/members they are too dumb to know better and should only use your website.

Well I thought I'd let their members know what Internet Brands is up to so I put up a message only they can see once they click the link from MustangForums to ME:

This is the thread. Notice the url in the bottom left still points to MustangEvolution because their admins don't know how to properly edit a link:


Now this is the message you see when you click that link:

Looks like they discovered how to properly edit a post now.

I also like how Ride of the Month defines 'quite awhile back' as less than a week.

Re: So Internet Brands Is Scared of MustangEvolution

Meh, no biggie. The same thing happened with Steigemeier when other companies started porting eatons. He hammered one saying they were retards and their ports will never make power....then drilled a new guy that just came out and started his own side business. Went all ballistic because the dude used one of steig's ported plenums to show of his own designed EGR delete plug. Steig made all kinds of rediculous claims and assertions and was eventually kicked off mod fords as a sponsor.

Some people just can't handle competition.

Yea. This is the same company that had some of their biggest websites blacklisted in Google because of spyware issues. MustangForums.com was one of them.
