What is the problem with the current forum anyway ? Unless I am being an "unaware troll" myself (not too sure what the objective definition is), I have not seen too much crap on this forum, mostly respectful point of views and valuable advice or information. And when there is crap, just refrain from the urge of responding or commenting ... ignorance is probably the best vaccine against stupidity or offense. I agree that restricting access to owners is a self-defeating measure: as many pointed out, owners were initially ... non-owners, possibly seeking advice. Cannot be verified anyway, unless you request membership at owners.ferrari.com where they check your VINs ... The forum on owners.ferrari.com may actually be a good lesson for what NOT to do: restricted access, complex and cumbersome navigation, few use it. I value all the work done by Rob, but to me it's either advertising or a yearly fee, not both.
