Default Ricks at it again!

When this site (Ford ranger Forums) started, at the top of the Ranger-forums page, it said Ranger-forums. Then, when Rick took over R-F, the top of that websites page changed from "Ranger-Forums" to "Ford Ranger forums".
Now, he's stolen the Ranger stations tageline: "Your ultimate Ranger Resource" and is using that slogan along with Ford Ranger Forum" on the Ranger-Forums (R-f) website

isn't it illegal for Rick to take other websites slogans, names and use them as his own?

Rick has shown on numerous occasions that he has absolutely no integrity nor concern for U.S. law.

Regarding your question if it's illegal, it's a gray area. You also need to realize that Rick is a citizen is a country outside U.S. jurisdiction, and R/F belongs to a corporation outside U.S. jurisdiction; thus further complicating the legality.

Regardless, this is an issue between TRS & R/F and doesn't need to be here, thus I would suggest posting this at one (or both) of the forums in question. Considering you've helped put money in Ricks pocket I'm sure he would be more than happy to listen to your concerns.

Rick suffers from chronic >> mental illness <<. So he uses R-F to bully the rest of the world to make up for it.

I meant to lock this thread after my post, but clearly I failed to do that...

Agreed. This doesn't affect us or really change anything in anyway, so it's a moot point.

R/F using the name "Ford Ranger Forum" doesn't bother me at all, it's their forum and they can do what they want with it. If TRS is disgruntled with R/F's new slogan they can act accordingly. As I mentioned in my first this is an issue between TRS & R/F and doesn't need to be here, thus I would suggest posting this at one (or both) of the forums in question.

Thus, I'm locking this thread.

Tradition has been for Rick to retaliate (EG: trying to get us shutdown) every time anything negative about him has been posted here, so assuming he keeps the tradition going I'll unlock this thread if an update is necessary.

Interesting side note: R/F became "Ford Ranger Forum" less than 24 hours after I posted evidence of Rick reading PMs on R/F (so its been like that for a while).

Well tradition has held true, Rick filed another legal claim against us.

So about 7 different attempts to get us shut down, and two attempts involving official legal claims... *sigh*

Essentially the same as his last one, that FRF is violating copyright laws.
