How many members got a PM from Ella ?
 
How many members got a PM from Ella asking you to review a Code reader?

I am trying to find out what caused certain people to get this PM.

I am thinking it has to do with key words we use in our post that attracted Ella to our Forum.

I know I try and help many people on multiple Forums with diagnostics and I have more than once provided links to code readers and other products from Amazon, normally just to show examples of parts or tools that I suggest they get but not to endorse any particular product.

If you have received this PM from Ella please let us know.

If you have a theory please chime in as well.

Kevin, I have been wondering that myself. I suspect that she/they scanned recent posts somehow for key words or phrases like scan tool / code reader / ForScan / P0103 / etc. Not sure how they could do that without the help of the forum owners though. Of course, if the forum owner could get some revenue from allowing them to scan our posts, then that would explain everything...

EDIT: I heard back from "Ella" and she said she submitted my info to the company to send the scan tool. Mentioned that it is a new model, so inventory is low so may take a bit to get it sent out. We will see what happens.

Know when I am on this forum, I keep getting warning that this site is trying to run unauthentic scripts or something along those lines.

When I have many tabs ones from different forums this forum always has a spinning symbol like something on this site is pulling a lot of CPU power.

When I shut the site down clear my cookies and what not my pc runs normal.

I haven't noticed any performance degradation when accessing this (or other) forums. I have my browsers set to clear the cache on exit, which is always handy and helps with security. Also, haven't gotten any scripting errors, so not sure about that. My default browser is currently Firefox...

In any of your recent post do you remember mentioning any specific key words like scanner, code reader , diagnostics etc Amazon?

Nope, I have rarely even posted over there in years and it is usually just to see a few builds that randomly get updated.

Hmm I guess we may never know what their method of selection is.

Unless they just go by number of post per member

I've gotten a few weird things happening here lately. I'm so paranoid anymore with spoofing, robocalls, and all that crap, he, she, or it, might have tried in some form or fashion, but I would have ignored it and erased it anyway. Who really knows what the ultimate outcome may be.:mad:
For all I know, this "Ella", is just another Nigerian POS.

No need to be paranoid, most of what you describe is automated BS..

If anything you should be angry and I'll explain why. Every time I go somewhere, the bank, pharmacy, some random shop it amazes me and behooves me to understand all of these people who will smile at you and say "by the way Sir, YOU do know you can do that online right? Or you can read/view/inquire from our website?

I once told the girl at Chase Bank several years ago.. I said "I'm sorry to be frank and bold but you do realize the more things you push off to your website and automated phone systems the faster you'll be pushing yourself out of a job right? I mean if all of a sudden everyone starts using the automated systems and website exclusively, who needs you?!"

she paused, and then the look of worry drained into her face.. 7 months later she was no longer there. She could have found something else with more job security, moved to another branch, got fired.. who knows my point was still proven.

I lived in Detroit, was and have always been involved in the Automotive industry, and I watched all of that industry leave or fade away one company after another except for a few fleeting ones I have contacts at and although things are better since 2007 forward, most definitely not the same passions or drive in any of it except for the struggle itself. So for me to see people lose jobs over automation kind of bug me. But its a double edged sword too cause people are certainly a lot more lazy in life because whats to train when all you have to teach them is to say, you can do that online, or do it yourself..

Do you really think the intent for self checkout was to serve you better in waiting times or to actually make you pay top dollar for a product after you fetched it, now you can be your own clerk so we dont have to hire and pay people or pay benefits to anyone and just stick that profit margin a little higher..

huh?

My parents to this day still dont answer phone calls, especially if they're solicitor types yet bitch and moan everyday the calls get more frequent and annoying. I told my Mom, ANSWER the damn phone, and through a few keystrokes or a person there you can make them stop if not from disinterest from harassment itself.

They've finally started listening to me and stopped blowing schoolyard Coach whistles in the phone at least....

Well, kiss my ass! Guess what I received Saturday in the mail? Yup, a TOPDON ArtiLink 201 OBDII & EOBD scan tool. Didn't have time to check it out this weekend (was finishing up a new mod). So sometime this week, I will start playing with it. I honestly would have bet money that I would never see this scanner. Pleasant surprise, though! :)

Are you sure it is a scanner or is it the very device they intend to use to steal our brains? :rolleyes::eek::D
