Forum Sold - But same Guys remain

Attention Vendors. Please email robert@rabtech.com any instruction manuals you may have for your products. They will be added to the FILEBASE tab for members to access.
  • Really? They weren't SS owners? That just kinda blows me away, i had no idea

    No they are "Polaris" guys. They also ran a Victory forum and an Indian forum - not sure if they sold those. They started the forum years ago and just waited for the payoff. The site was created when the Polaris Patent Drawings were posted in Feb 2013 - so they were definitely visionary in that regard though it was stated that Polaris started the project in 2010.

  • It appears that the majority shareholder of Verticalscope is the same company that prints the Toronto Star newspaper. Obviously VS does make money as they said in the article I read that it made the media giant a profit. I also noticed on another website that we cannot say its name that @Tripod was the top poster last month not bad for part of a month. I wonder if they anyone is going to come close to spouting so much "knowledge" to the world on the unnameable website in the months to come?????????????????

  • The prior month, March, I had 1251 posts "over there". This forum started on 4/9, I joined on 4/10. Ended up with 403 posts for the month of April "over there", the bulk of which were posted prior to the start of this forum - somehow ended up with Top Poster even with that low # - just shows that it's definitely going downhill. I still visit & post sometimes over there. There's the occasional rare nugget I like to bring over here plus having fun tormenting the admins by posting slingshotinfo.com pics.

  • I will say that when I read that post I couldn't contain my smile. It was the best thing i had read in a long time. They will always get new members and they will always have some content. But they will never grow with real members. Maybe some people that find them threw a search engine or maybe they could create "bots" for members.


    Again, this is my opinion and should be noted as such. I have to go now. I have to do my happy dance.

  • "Vertically focused" - LOL!!! That's subversive 'corporate-speak' meaning "We have the shaft so bend over, you unwashed masses!!!"


    Or,


    "The bulk of the $ earned goes vertically to the top man."

  • The news is just entertaining it really doesn't matter to me or probably most of the Slingshotinfo members. Haven't logged in at that site in weeks. Hope all those vendors find their way over here.
    They did take the money and ran though.

    Wow, I kinda feel a little taken by that other forum. I was taken in by all that SS and we talk. I thought they owned and road as we do...They made their money and left town after dark...Wow
