Morris 4x4 Center

I just realized that with all the complaining about Morris and their shitty marketing tactics scattered throughout the forum, they never actually earned the honor of having a Dirty Laundry thread so here it is.

Unfortunately all this will be for nothing when they decide to do another round of spamming

Don't they pay to be a vendor and advertise? I prefer nr4x4 but mostly because wal hates them and they do provide excellent service but the times I have used Morris4x4 they provided great price and fast shipping. Or is it something else they have done that has prompted this thread?

Never bought from them, but this constant spamming will lead me to never buy from them. I don't agree with in your face marketing like that.

As said in various thread, the shit they are advertising on here doesn't even pertain to the JK. Just some asshat behind the scenes that says Jeeep Jeep Jeep (like a dog chasing a squirrel).

They are a paid vendor but so are many others. Morris has chosen to use some sort of automated bots to post for them so the Vendor section is over run with nothing but Morris threads, many of which arent even for JK products and since its a bot, they are unresponsive to any posts about the issue.

Its a very poor marketing tactic and needs to stop.

Do what any good God fearing, Trump supporting, gun totting conservative does...just ignore the ads. I have never once been bothered by any ads on this forum or any other. I only read the posts I want to and skip the rest. Only reason I opened this one was I thought maybe they screwed somebody over besides WAL LOL. Oh and why blame Morris4x4 when they are not breaking any rules and if they are breaking rules then JKO should be on them like stink on shit.

Hard to ignore them when you are also a paid vendor on here and your ad gets buried under their crap regularly.

JKO has never needed to have a rule against something like this but it is now being discussed by the overlords:

I'm not a vendor but from the perspective of just another member ( a rather amicable one, at that )I can attest to my daily doses of jko arriving in the form of my hitting the site then , if I have no PMs or notifications, I just click upon 'Active Topics' ... probably not unlike lots of us .
However, lately & w the recent surge of what does appear to be automated , flood-posting by the aforementioned vendor renders that feature useless. I do not see the recent replies to active threads but , instead , see approximately 15-20 non-enticing, non-applicable , waste-of-space ad hucking theads from the Vendors Marketplace and New Product News posted all within the same 8-13 minute window on that given day by this vendor.
I'm all freaking for vendors and I darn-well support ours but this one needs to be aware that it is destroying the very vehicle it has paid to be a vendor on , let alone taking away from other vendors.
It feels wrong , it has never occurred previously and something needs to be done about it now.

Otherwise , I'm gonna start my own darn JK forum .

so, it is pretty funny how within 8 min of the 11:22am timestamp on the most current Merris4x4 thread the exact same post was added to wranglerforum and other vBulletin forums (11:10am) ...
I can hit sourceforge and get a vBulletin auto-poster or thread-blaster , too. But , none if our other vendors appear to be running these 3,4 and 5 times per day. For the uninitiated, you can have your threads pre-entered and just blast away at multiple forums all day long w the same crap ads. This is essentially turning our forum into the jeep equivalent of a porn site. Just hit google and search for vBulletin autopost

this should not be allowed or should be limited. Otherwise, we all should use this and post Gar photos to every thread at increasingly more frequent intervals all day long...

Although this is completely unrelated, I figured I'd post it here...

There's an online forum out there called Jerry's Koala Orgy. Many people also refer to the site as JKO for short. Being an advocate of organized marsupial sex-parties, I enthusiastically accepted a moderating position on the forum when it was offered to me some years ago. Over the years JKO has relied upon the integrity of it's forum members as well as it's vendors that manufacture and sell all sorts of cool koala orgy related merchandise. Well... Jerry is a nice guy and so he never really laid out many specific rules for the forum participants to adhere to. Rather, he trusted the vendors to not advertise excessively.

For the most part there wasn't too much of an issue with the majority of vendors respecting one another as they were all there for the same reason... to sell products and services while maintaining regard for one another. But one vendor in particular by the name of More Ass Four-Bi-Four ( specializing in Bisexual Koala Optics) decided that they should be exempt from any forum guidelines and that their premium status gave them free-reign to advertise in multiple sections however many times a day they pleased. Obviously this lack of regard for forum members and fellow vendors was not well received by other participants. A while back, a thread was even started by one of the original administrators in a behind-the-scenes sub-forum ( one created just for vendors, moderators, and administrators) asking that vendors not take advantage of the relaxed posting guidelines and encouraging them to stop flooding the forum pages with commercial postings. As a moderator I myself expended countless hours deleting posts that were made in the wrong sections and hoping that they would eventually understand that their disregard was beginning to hurt forum participation, integrity, and premium membership renewals.

I feel that Jerry himself would have put a stop to this in one way or another because he had created that forum under the principle of unbiased practices, open dialog, and transparent procedures... all together in a cozy community oriented setting. But unfortunately the site grew and grew to the point that it changed... and in my opinion, not for the better. Also worth noting is that around that time, Jerry made the decision to sell the forum to a Cambodian company that had more of a sterile and business-oriented type of management style. They came in and although seemingly trying to not muddy up the water too much, also began making changes that hurt the community... changes that soon became apparent to many members to be only in the best interest of the site-owners, not the community. The integrity and ease of use had been seemingly compromised and left many members feeling disregarded and ignored.

As a moderator, I saw these negative effects and tried to run damage control and help forum participants where and when I could. Being a volunteer and being that I had no IT experience, the time and assistance that I could offer was limited... but again, I did what I could. Fortunately we also had some fantastic members like DirtMansupial and J3ff3ry_Koala_Lov3r to assist others. But things just continued to get worse and member/ vendor concerns seemed to often go unaddressed. At one point I even decided that without intervention, the now out of control More Ass Four-Bi-Four might in all actuality cause some long-term damage. So I pleaded back and forth with administration to do something about it. Their response was a slow and seemingly nonchalant reply that succinctly stated that there would need to be specific rules implemented before anything could be done. They were however, kind enough to offer me some sample rules from another one of the many forums that they owned but it needed to be revised in order to make more sense for a smaller site like Jerry's Koala Orgy. So I spent time attempting ( on my own) to set forth something that would be easy for the majority of vendors to conform to ( even though I felt bad because most of them had never done anything wrong nor questionable) and upon completion of the revision, felt like once it was posted, that we might finally gain back some of the decency and unity that the forum had lost.

Sadly though, it seemed that my efforts had been in vain as I was told quite succinctly that further review would need to take place before anything might be done. Well... I waited and waited with no correspondence from the owners and so with that, I decided that I would no longer try in solidarity to save the forum. I knew that the site had already lost plenty of participation and now I was finally seeing quite starkly that the ones in control of the forum just didn't care. So what could I do. If others pulled their premium memberships and advertising dollars to go elsewhere, could I blame them? Quite obviously... I could not.

And lastly I'd like to say that if and when y'all find yourselves browsing Jerry's Koala Orgy forum, that you stop by and say hi, that you post some pics of your favorite little sexually deviant marsupial, and that you participate in some of the friendly banter or reliable tech topics, but that when it comes time to buy your furry Australian native some glasses, anal tubes, or footwear, that you not use More Ass Four-Bi-Four. Support those that deserve it.

Crikey, Stub!

I just now realized - your avatar photo is you wheeling across the crack of someone's gigantic "down under"

Butt-seriously, thank you for lending perspective to the devolution of a forum you love.




Ironically, poignantly, and/or coincidentally, Jerry started his Koala Orgy forum because . . .

. . . an existing forum (Jack's Koala - Fanbois / Waste-O'-Life ) fellated some vendors to the detriment of content and members.

@StubEXrube , you so exemplify what remains awesome about Jerry’s Koala Orgy ( More Ass Four Bi Four?! well-played , friend = you winning) that I had to stop my 1:1 mornin’ marsupial makeout session to just say people such as you (& the regular gang of the remaining fuzzy , warm miscreants ) & our impressive,collective knowledge of the 07-18 Koalas are what makes me continue to want to be here.
Thank you for all you do and have done ; it has not gone unnoticed by us .
For my rapture and pleasure gained by your above comment, I reward you with a selfie I took just as my weekend plans had begun...the other 11 koalas were not yet here so I was showin some special fluffer-fondness via 1on1 action to my main , big-mama bear...

she be thick !


Keep the faith, bro.

And Ex is spot-on ; I never noticed your avatar was you avoiding or tiptoeing across the large arse-crack of Jerry’s Koala 🐨 Orgy !

Stopping this crap is easy. Cost them more money than it's worth.

Call them, ask a million questions, then remind them that you cannot do business with someone who would spam JKO. Do this a few times a day.

Use the live chat to ask them to stop spamming JKO

Hit the social media sites, remind them that spamming forum boards every day is NOT ok. Call them out publicly for their bullshit.

Contact them here: https://www.morris4x4center.com/customer-service

If the new owners are all about the money, maybe we can buy a ban. What's it worth to have More Ass kicked out?

When I come in here in a bad mood I just delete all their new posts. It's a shame but if admin doesn't enforce things then I'll sometimes "over-enforce" things to balance it out. No shits given for a company that floods the forum with excess postings, posting in the wrong sub-forums, and blatant disregard towards other vendors. Fuck Morris... fuck 'em hard... fuck 'em repeatedly. Fuck 'em.

Just to be clear, when your mods feel the same way about something but
are powerless in all but vocalizing their disdain for it,
it looks like the above.









edit: maybe this woulda been more suitable for my post
