    Never heard that one, though I could definitely see that happening.

    As far as I'm aware, someone looked at the IP address of the account from which the posts were being made and traced it back to a computer terminal located within DMCH's Humble, TX, headquarters.

    Though, I admittedly didn't actually follow these events myself as they occurred, nor did I confirm the IP trace - my info comes solely from hearsay, thus it may be correct, or it could all be a steaming pile of crapola generated by the great internet rumor mill.

    The full details are on the DML, but are difficult to compile.

    The official DMCH response to the whole incident.
    http://www.projectvixen.com/DMCNews-.../msg50479.html

    "The intent was not to deceive, though it now appears that deception
    was the end result."

    I still don't understand how lying is not deceiving. But I'm just a simpleton.

    I'm going to read that when I am not so engrossed in my beer. Thanks for compiling, it looks like it will be interesting.

    That guy Michael is just awesome! He is letting me stay at his house while he installs one of his fine and well made transmission filters in my car. To be honest, I don't know why anyone would not want 3 or 4 of his redesigned filters for optimum flow at low RPMs. vs. the highly restrictive and porbably clogged(or missing OE filters). I can't wait to try it out and I hear from reputable sources that the ladies swoon when they see a DeLorean with his filter installed.

    Looks like the links are dead now. I suspect another cover-up. Future generations of owners will never know.

    And unfortunately the Wayback Machine doesn't have any archives of those links.
