Anyone else here visit the Planet9 forum?
Planet9 is the forum i discovered before I got my Cayman. The site was recommended to me by a member of the BRZ/FRS forum where I was member. I was excited to learn about Planet9. Reading the 981 threads help stoke my excitement and contributed to my decision to get a Cayman sooner than I expected.
Now, however, I don't visit that site anymore. Many of the members are really down on the 718. I understand that the 718 is not for everyone, but some of the members behave as though it's their personal mission to destroy the 718 reputation.
There's a discussion group "718 Chat". As a new owner or someone looking to purchase a 718 you'd expect to find details about the cars, technical discussion and of course some people that don't like the 718. But, if you visit the 718 Chat group you will find a thread titled "Worst 718 Reviews?" with over 1500 posts. Almost 10 times more posts than any other thread in the 718 Chat group! What's worse, the majority of the contributors to this thread are 981 owners that have absolutely no interest in the 718 and try to destroy anyone that may have anything positive to say about the 718.
One of the "worst" offenders seems to be a contributor that I believe is one of the site's Administrators!
Anyway, I have decided to stay away from Planet9. I realize I could just avoid that thread, but whenever I visited that site looking for updated content, this particular thread seemed to be the most active.
Maybe when there are more 718 owners and meaningful content I will return. For now though, I can do without Planet9 and would not recommend it to anyone looking at the 718.
I would be curious to read what others here think.
