Post Are Forums all CRAP?
Wow. I tried to find information about a TSB for my Ford F150.

Breaking outside of old school DSM knowledge results in some frustrating places to read. Most of the forums have been bought by dealer sponsorships. Seems like they prevent TSBs from getting posted or actual knowledge moving.

Are all forums dead or is there an underground I am missing?

I am tired of getting answers from people who just want to answer first and have zero mechanical knowledge or experience.

Okay I'll bite. I've had similar experiences. I expected better on the Porsche forums for something that I am struggling with and it would seem that no one does any of their own work and the ones who do can't be bothered with explaining how they did it.

Forums have seemingly migrated to Facebook Groups which are complete garbage. I do like the f150ecoboost.net forum but even still, I feel like the days of a tight knit forum community like this or some of the other is gone. And, there is just so much information out there hiding on the various forums too...it's just hard to navigate and find it and people are lazy and so, forums are dead:(
