USEnet has been dead for some-for two decades and was
alive long before compuserv came along and moduled into
it. The fact you mention it as the 'dark web' is suspicious
as if you are familiar with other darker uses of the Internet.
The fact that you suspect a major vehicle manufacturer
inspecting a platform like this is pretty hilarious.
Enthusiast clubs are found on the aforementioned forums
and shit like Facebook groups, which I'd imagine 90% of
their buyers have the patience and the tech
know-how enough to be apart of a group on Facebook on
their cell phone and that's about it.
