Default rules for business , includes internet

Let me state some simple facts about business . These should apply to an internet site as well as any thing else .

Support each other , I would think that any 2 sites on the net would link to each other if at all related in concept . This is beneficial to both sites . Bickering and petty minds loose in the long run .

In my buisness it took many years for Towing companies to figure out your competitor is not your enemy if your smart . I learned a long time ago that a company that will work with me is an asset . As a mid sized tow company i dont hesitate to call on a competitor to assist in a major disaster .Yes they make money on it too but my shop shines due to its ability to be resourceful and get the job done quick .


Why does this not apply on the internet ? or is it small minds causeing bickering between sites that prevents the growth of these sites ?

" Water seeks its own level "

collectively 4x4 sites should attract as many customers as the market has . That body of people will seek its own level as well . Other words they will migrate towards there favorite site but in the end all sites gain members best suited to the style of each site .

read it , write it off or pay attention . some times age is worth more then a college education .

Dittos, Marv.

I'd certainly stop for a "GLer" by the side of the road or trail as I would a an "MJer"

We must also be sure this division doesn't reduce our ability or focus with regards to keeping trails open (and - dare we think it - open yet more trails to fullsizers).

In my mind, these are the posts that make issues... There is no issues between Jeremy and I, nor with GL and MJ...

There never was, never will..

But posts like this imply that there are issues, which there is not.

So now, anyone who reads the above post will think something funky is going on.. But its not.

BioBill and I just decided to make a forum reaching to everyone in the great lakes region who offroads... Not just jeep owners from Michigan..

This was not to try to hurt MJ, but to bring more people together.. I really wish people would drop this subject.

I think that is because it's new, some may return to the other, some will stay, some will do both, both are great sites

I must say it is nice to see a variety of rigs though. I am an old Ford guy and like to see or wheel with them also. I'm sure most people will continue to check out both site.
