I'm a member of Steve Saunders forum also and if you read the link to his press release to the forum yesterday, he said that Motorcycle.com will not immediately add advertising but will put to a vote later. There is no mention of a merging of forums at this time.

Personally, I've only been a member on the Saunders forum and here on GWOF since December 2011. I've posted 37 times on the other forum and over 1500 here. There are folks there who are passionate about their forum and who have forged friendships just like folks have done here. I was welcomed here by many that made me feel like I was part of this family.

It's the natural commercial evolution of most web based forums/ blogs. Gentleman, what drives the internet ? We pay for our internet connection, but who pays for the sites ? I'm not being cynical, it's not a " sell out ". Products drive the internet regardless of your philanthropic ideals. Steve Saunders isn't selling out so much as he's cashing in. " Publish or Perish ". We support and promote our " Sponsors " here because they have served us personally well, not because they have allowed us free membership to use up their router storage space. The best sites will have the best products. That is the power that the member side holds.

Never been a F.W. don't intend to start. Whatever will be will be (que sera sera). I started here because we were different & we all work very hard to keep it that way.

I've met some great people & many are my friends. If a merger happens it would be a shame & I would just resort to phone & text messages.

The SF has a new Admin/Marco. I think I'll privately ask him if a merger is in the works and on second hand, maybe I better leave sleeping dogs lie. Wouldn't want to plant the seed.:eek:
