Who is the webmaster for this forum?

Does Anyone know who the authorities are for this form and how they can be contacted?

View Forum Leaders link near bottom of homepage. It shows the two administrators and everyone who has moderator rights. They are all ghosts.

I did flag one of those posts before I noticed how many there were.

He got me first. Iím into photography. Digital cameras are constantly being improved. Theyíre always coming out with new models. He said he had Nikon D 200s that sold new for $2000 for 600 bucks. They were about five years old at the time. I am Old and didnít understand how these scams work. It seemed perfectly logical to me.

But it seems that no one is Being taken in so I guess we just ignore him.

Not perfect.
If I see anything that looks like it does not belong.
I can use the Forums Tools tab and at least mark the forum read. So they don't pop up as new.

This past week I have seen VitzBoy logged in twice. Don't know what he does/did if anything since no cleanup of spam has happened.

I love my Yaris and after >70K miles of mostly road trips it is still in immaculate condition, but at 7 years old it's only a matter of time before it gets replaced with something new, then I will be a Forum Ghost also.

7 years old and in danger of being replaced?

My Yaris is 10 years old. I have just ordered a Mazda CX-30 to replace my 8 year old Toyota Aurion (that's a V6 Camry elsewhere). My 23 year old son has finally got his driver's licence, and the Aurion is on the list of "banned" cars for new drivers, as it is over the allowable power to weight ratio, so he cannot legally drive it...

What would you replace it with? Are hatchbacks made anymore?

I guess you could buy a Tesla.

Maybe this 2023 Corolla Hatchback for my Road Trips and a Bolt EV as my Daily.

I'm exactly the guy to buy a Tesla, but I hate their styling!

The original version banned a driver on a "provisional" licence (first three years from passing the test) from any vehicle with a V8 or forced induction. This eventually changed to any vehicle with a power to weight ratio in excess of 130 kilowatts per tonne.

I recently went on a trip with my wife to deliver a car load of items interstate. We did 2500 km in 3 days. I got caught out several times when I put my foot down like I would in the Yaris.
