    MBWorld refuses to bring back MHP despite repeated calls by Members

    MBWorld Admin reponds to member requests to bring back MHP to MBworld by trying to extort $200 from members in order to allow him to return. They were probably expecting no one to take them up on their offer, but when members responded with enthusiasm about paying, MBworld responds by threatening "disciplinary action" against users that talk about MHP and locking up the threads. What kind of childish operations are they running over there? They are going to discipline users for talking about a vendor whom they do not like? Click here to enlarge

    I can understand not being allowed to sell or promote sales for a company that is forbidden to be sold on that site. But not being able to talk about it is absurd, Not being able to list the mods your running is stupid as well.

    Lame.

    Agree 100%. This just shows how completely ridiculous MBworld is.

    +1.... they have already banned the company a long time ago, so why go to these extremes of punishing their own members from sharing stories and benefiting from each other's experiences Click here to enlarge

    I can not emphasize enough how good it feels to even ever so slightly break their monopoly over Mercedes enthusiasts minds.

    I just don't get this move on their part. Trying to deflect the attention evosport has brought upon themselves by screwing over dozens of customers for tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars by censoring the name of a company that has nothing to do with them or the situation period.

    I do think this will hurt them more in the long run, how can it not, as Chas mentioned it's pathetically childish as is.

    If they hurt any more they will simply be done.

    It doesn't make sense, but hey, this is there way of "fighting" back I guess. They should spend more time on resolving outstanding balances/orders then playing with the censorship settings in Vbulletin.

    Is this the last effort to get MHP reinstated? Does MHP want to be reinstated? As a vender or as a general member?

    As a member MHP will not be allowed to promote his wares directly so I guess that would be kind of lame and lead to all kinds of misunderstandings and penalties.

    As a vender there is a larger audience on MBW but that seems to be changing and this venue is slowly but surely becoming better known. Still a vender has the problem of getting information out to the most people in the most cost efficient and productive manner.

    On the other hand we all have seen how immature MBW can be in dealing with issues that come up. They obviously worry much more about their own intrinsic values, issues and concerns that those of the membership at large. Often in defending their own they are doing a direct disservice to the membership.

    Anyone think they are going to change this mentality any time soon?

    Personally, I think MBW is a sinking shipClick here to enlarge--don't get me wrong they're not going to disappear completely, but as more people find out about BB with the cool mods and open dialogue--MBW will continue to shrink.Click here to enlarge
    MBW will always have those thousands of useful threads to search from the past, but we all know as time goes by our "hobby" is really focused on cars 5 years and newer, so those past posts will become less and less popular, as long as BB gets the new info.
    That's my .02.

    I just hope BB doesn't turn into MBW as it growsClick here to enlarge
    For now, I'm happy to swap back and forth between the two--kinda like being married and havin a little on the side--you know what meanClick here to enlarge

    Go get 'em BB!

    Exactly. It's not like we can eliminate the thousands of good threads that are on MBW but characterizing it as a sinking ship is pretty accurate. Just that it will be perpetually sinking, never fully sunk. Completely destroying them has never been the goal, it has simply been to lessen their grip by offering up a better alternative. What we can hope for is to become the number 1 alternative as well as the best source for new Benz's... which are all boosted.

    Why the hell does he mean "alleged" cases? So over unsubstantiated allegations they are banned? Amusing.

    This just gets better and better. I hear MBW is not allowing new members to post, putting their accounts into queque until they are "approved". Perfect timing to stop a legion of unsuspecting customers that want to post their stories in that thread. Another smart move by the braintrust at EvoIB.

    I have to question this post from "Jo" at speedriven. Given that speedriven has done zero with the M156 or M159 did you need them "chased off" so you could try to peddle your crap?

    I don't think you really want to go there Marcin/Jo but be my guest if you're feeling froggy.

    For those of you that don't follow Jo, he's been a non stop crybaby about being a former Renntech employee on MBW for months. Even though he left over a year ago he still whines like it was yesterday and along with Hooley tries to slam RT whenever he can. But you'll always see him sticking his nose where it doesn't belong answering the question no one's asking.

    Not really sure I understand the backstory here?

    What is the issue with what speedriven wrote?

    Jo from Speedriven said it was "fair" that MHP was chased off. Again I have to ask why and in what world that's fair?

    It ties in with the whole Ken Rudy/Evotech, Hooley, Hart, Katz ripping off RENNtech scheme. Speedriven is friendly with Hooley and they are all thick as thieves.

    Are there any more details on this? Not sure about how the Renntech rip-off thing went down. Maybe that is why the owner of Renntech was pissed off and would at least support what Hooley was saying about that so called "fight."

    There are plenty of details that RENNtech wouldn't mind being posted, we'll see if Jo's smart enough to keep his mouth shut, I doubt it.
