Yea...... probably shouldn't look directly at the light and you may wanna get behind some sort of immovable object, preferably of concrete..

or a basement..


Underground bunker perhaps...?

The warning isn't a "smart" warning, it's just Google being aware the site has that filehost72 redirect that sometimes happens, so they put the site address in a database and the browser sees this and makes it show the warning.

The site is no more dangerous than it was before, we're just getting warned about it now.

So let me ask you a question... WHAT are you afraid this site can get from you that you pretty much haven't already provided? Your cell phone and actual email account ESPECIALLY if its a Gmail every thing sent back and forth has been scanned and meta stored. Same with SMS and everything else thanks to those who put the damn Patriot ACT in place cause not enough people did anything about it.

They just signed it into law... everyone shrugged their shoulders and went back to their Monday Night Football, beer thirty, or any other mere distraction they involve themselves with. Now 15+ years later everyone's wondering WTF.. and "heeyyyyyyyyyyy, wait a min now..."

"The Basics of Phishing. According to Microsoft's Safety & Security Center, phishing can be summed up as: “A type of online identity theft. It uses email and fraudulent websites that are designed to steal your personal data or information such as credit card numbers, passwords, account data, or other information” "

Unfortunately despite the scary red screen Google provides for fear porn, FRF ranks pretty low in comparison to actual 'Real' social media where purchasing options are established; FaceCrook, Pinterest, Instagram, and well as funny as it would be to not include it.. PornHub and the like.

Capt. Save a Hoe's will drain a $5k credit card trying to rescue some self promoting materialistic slut throwing a cornucopia of plastic dicks, mixed fruit, and veggies in her F*@%holes.. THEY want his CC info..!

I think what bothers me is the lack of attention by the higher ups to consider the comfort of its patrons that in its heyday provided a nice small income.. and now offers nothing but snide comments from its underlings. I think there are quite a few OTHER people that care about the site more and offer there dedication despite maybe not even owning a Ford Ranger anymore...

Well Except Dvrich.. I dont think he could wield the "Hammer of FRF" without getting a God complex or a hulk one just smash and ban people at will tangent. lmao

Code execution would be the concern here, not phishing, but the rest of your points are all valid and pretty sad

thanks, i think there are a lot of great people on this site. Shit, I only have conversed with a dozen or two but I've made some great contacts and friends from this site believe it or not. Its not a constant burden of my thoughts but it does bother me to feel like its being cast to the wayside because it no longer serves someone(s) needs.

Pass the torch then.. to someone who would put the time in, select new staff, bring vendors back or in altogether.. whatever.

I dont really understand why there has been at the very least no replacement for Mods here? I realize we're pretty self policing which is great from my anarchist perspectives but when you need something done thats above the capabilities of the average member; I.E. A couple people wanted to establish or renew there member contributor memberships. Nothing worked, I believe those people and others still have not received their FRF stickers. I mean I get it, there just damn stickers but at the same time well they were proud enough to purchase them so they could advertise for the site.. you'd think you could put 15-20 mins of your time to complete a few things and get those out in the mail?!

Albeit there's a few dozen laying around on a desk or a unused portion of a kitchen table or something... Only reason why the rest of the agreement came to fruition is because IT or THAT is an "Automated" feature of the site. Wooty! Something works as intended..

/rant

EDIT: You know whats really funny, I been watching things slow down for awhile despite new users coming in. But then it dwindled from 3-5 pages after a full day, maybe two to less than 22 posts a day or two. Some may have to do with the vast majority of people thinking FRF became compromised and isnt a safe site now. But honestly. There is a preppers/survivalist site I frequent.. in a single day missed I can come back to well over 800 NEW posts.. and thats every day.. I frequent a Nissan site, yet again ANOTHER dead platform vehicle.. come back every other day to 60-80 posts at least. So bothe ends of the scale.

Yeah, it is sad it's gone this way, i can't pretend to know what's been going on, i'm *very* new to Rangers, but i came here enough to see that since Chrome started giving that warning, the site attendance dropped way down.

That was on top of an issue i noticed when i was searching for the active Ranger forums; that if you entered this site from a google search, it'd hit that filehosting72 site instead, which makes the whole thing look like a dead site and i basically started ignoring the search results for FRF. I only accidentally got here after opening multiple tabs and seeing the other tabs open with decent content.


Anyway, yeah, it's sad and annoying - it has however meant an increase of visitors to the other active Ranger forum, for which you'll see some members from here posting more over there.

I simply wish there was a way to prorate my membership payment, it will not be renewed this time around. I paid to support and promote a once good place to learn, maintain, and mod a nice little truck. Seems I even managed to make a few friends along the way. Too bad my money has gone to line someones pocket who doesn't give a rats ass anymore. Hmm, something like D.C.?LOL
May as well just come out and ask it, hell, there's no one to ban me anyway, anyone know of an actual active Ranger forum anywhere? Everyone I've checked out is even less active than here.

again, sadly I would hate to see further good people walk away... But damn, the townspeople need to pick up their torches and pitchforks and march upon the administration. [JUST like D.C.]

A real FRF.com member and contributor would buy a Vinyl cutting machine to make newly designed FRF stickers for us.

Then this assume member that could be you would lead a army of Computer nerd-hackers to overthrow the missing overlords and provide free brand new Ford Rangers and stickers for all your loyal members.

So just say no to the current lack of supervision ,moderation and stickers.

Say yes to an I can do attitude and remember, It's not what FRF can do for you its what you can do for Ford Ranger Forum.
