    I honestly didn't think it would be an issue because I always linked to said review at the bottom of the quote, they contacted me too.

    I'm not fussed over it, if thats what they want then thats what they want at the end of the day, easy to keep everyone happy that way.

    They're my favorite car review site, the website is nice on your eyes and the photos are good.

    I suspect the changing of the wording was the primary focus.

    2015 Ford Ranger review | first drive

    21 August 2015 by Joshua Dowling CarsGuide

    Meet the new Aussie car. It’s a four-door, four-wheel-drive ute that can be used as a workhorse during the week and as family transport on weekends and holidays.

    The new Ford Ranger was designed and engineered from the ground up in Australia -- but it’s made in Thailand.

    And, frankly, we can’t buy enough of them.

    The Ranger is the top-selling Ford in Australia (and has been for the past two and a half years), selling at five times the rate of the locally made Falcon sedan and triple the rate of the Territory SUV.

    Marketing experts reckon part of the reason behind the success of these new generation utes is that mums and dads got tired of kids bikes, boogie boards and the like ruining the interior and the roof-lining of their SUVs.

    This the format we are allowed and that's the way it should be posted. You can post whatever part of the article you think is the most relevant. You can not change anything inside the quote box

    Whilst I accept and will abide by the new article posting protocols, I have some issues with the website named, and the person who owns it, and will not be posting any links or content that links to it on this forum or any other.

    I can't even remember changing the words in one, did I do it through the whole article?

    Thanks Ian, now we have a format to follow..

    This is now standard practice on US websites, normally it's limited to about 10% of the content
    or just enough to pique interest for discussion.. When done right, the originator appreciates the
    increased visitor traffic from posted links.
