Forest River Issues Cease and Desist to FRF - they’re trying to shut us down!

(Edit by site team, please read the entire thread and note TODAY'S Date as well as the subsection before proceeding)


WE WON’T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS!

It seems that Forest River doesn’t like the idea of us owners collaborating- especially when issues are at hand. They claim we are scaring people and hurting business.

Forest River, Inc. issued a cease and desist order to Social Knowledge, Inc. (the owners of the forum) to disallow any negative post. We can no longer talk about problems, issues, poor production quality, or anything but sunshine and rainbows- effective immediately.

WE WON’T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS!

Can yhey even issue a c and d? I thought that was up to the courts. I hate to think that I spent 37 years supporting and defending the constitution....part of which is something about freedom of speech only to have someone tell me I cant speak about their product whether good or bad.

Doesn’t make sense, they have FR employees on here. And how can they tell it to stop when they make the crap.

Sorry folks, this thread runs afoul of the new “sunshine and rainbow” rule.

Trust nothing today.
But I will admit I have been parts of forums that have been sent a c&d letter and not a single one has come directly from the company but from an ambulance chaser who looks to send the letter and gets a % of anything they can recover even though they are not directly from the companies league team

I got one from York International years ago when I tried reporting a security hole in their HR website. I could have accessed all of their applicant’s information (but didn’t).

When I called and talked to the lawyer, he would literally ignore me when I talked about the gaping security hole.

Ependydad you are quite the comic. Every year you manage to post an absolutely great April Fools joke. I love it but if you continue to do this next year I intent to file a lawsuit against you. Otherwise you have until high noon to get outta town.

Is the Sunshine and Rainbow rule only applicable on April 1ST?

I didn't know about this Social Knowledge, Inc thing, but they do use Forest River's logo's so it wouldn't be impossible to shut down the forum. I've seen several rants that strike me as 'over the top'. There's more to the problem than just the OP's pronounced problem. Such a rant will provide a very negative impression on a product for a 'one of' situation. Some recent problems should have been caught by the selling dealer's PDI and should have never been escalated to a buyers frustration.

So it is up to us to give our own 'Sanity Check' when we are frustrated with something. It's easier to get something fixed with 'Honey and Sugar' than with Fire and Brimstone.
