Hmmmmmmm........

I don't really understand why anyone would be "afraid" to post anything here.. if some dickheads here give you sh!t... SO WHAT? r u all so frail that a few bytes of rudeness, stupidity & unhelpfulness will put you back in your shell???

Assholes are everywhere.... better get used to it or it will be a REAL hard adjustment to life in the REAL world where assholes can be that way in PERSON, not behind a screen name or keyboard

We all have posted a snappy retort to someone who has posted a lame Q or is just being stoopid... but in the end it's just crap on a screen no one should be hurt & offended & afraid of the backlash.... fhuck them...post up.

I am NOT condoning this behaviour in any way, but untill some people grow up we will have to take the good with the bad & overall this site provides more good than bad for the members here even with a bunch of snot nosed punks ruining it & giving us a bad name...

There are a bunch of snide dicks here more so than other sites for SOME reason...? some are dicks ALL the time & some are snotty only on a bad day or what ever.. .Some are even the Moderators too..!? :shame:

Mods SHOULD set the example for the rest of the members.

I acknowledge that it is a pain to wade thru all the stoopid responses that often get posted up... & I hope as the avg .net member GROWS FHUCKING UP a little bit... they will see the error of their ways begin to look outside their little jacked up world & develop some proper, decent social skills.. we'll see...

Several of the members here are (or SEEM TO BE) snotty rich punkass kids who's mommies & daddies bought them a super nice freaking car at 16 or LESS instead of giving them a little more attention & love,... & these weenies take their unfulfilled life issues & personal frustrations out here & act like assholes & DEFINITELY give the site a BAD rep... not much you can do about that but set the better example & take the higher road as much as possible...


I will do MY part to help bring up the over all level of support here for my fellow member & all newbs too i hope more of us can join in..


BUT...but I DO reserve the right to SLAM that buttwipe IS300er as many times as needed untill HE pull his head outta his ASS or grows the hell up.

I can't agree with you more. When I first registered and asked a question forbidden to be asked in open forum, becasue I wasn't aware of the search, I got my ass chewed out and it started quite to-do. Bottom line is I felt uncomfortable askng anything else. All that happened was that I got into a pissing contest and talked shit to the others that were rude to me. Thanks for bringing this up and I respect the way you wrote the post.

I also commited the "sin" of asking about What people thought was the best body kit for the money when I first registered.

I got flamed with pictures of people doing dumb things and also received so many "Do a search" that I was hesitant to ask anything again. :noway:

What I don't understand is that most of the time it would take just as much time to answer the questions than to write "Do a search dumbass!" and post a picture.

When I see a question that I know has already been answered, instead of flamin' the guy, I do the search and post the URL for the member.

I mean, isn't that why we're really here...to help each other? 8)

Well, I always do a search first to see if I can find relevent info. But sometimes when a newb asks a question, they get flamed way too hard. Anyway, back to working on my car....

I think most of these problems could be resolved with a better categorization of the topic. For instance, in Go Fast Stuff I would like to see some sub-categorization that includes: intakes, exhausts, superchargers, turbochargers, ecu, etc. This would allow for focused groups of discussions and refinement of search results.

Another way to clear this up is to move or link improtant threads to a thread for newbies. If there is a good discussion about supercharger vs turbocharger, an admin should link it to a newbie thread.

Just some suggestions.

Since this is my second post in the last year, you can see I am lurker

On the subject of what is covered in this forum, I say about 80% of it is TUNER'S WAR!!!! One out of every three posts I see in here goes into a 5 or 10 page battle between PFS and SRT. I think they should have their own forums!!! Turbo vs. Supercharger, sure. best intake/exhaust, sure. These can be made stickys. The Tuner Battle is the biggest thing going on right now and the biggest waste of space. There should be an entire forum or a sticky comparing ALL the tuners products and pricing, and that's it. Other people should ask their questions freely about certain tuners if they want.


Just my $.02

use more specific words.

for example, turbo will pull up tons right??? how about turbo performance, or turbo kit, turbo problems, etc...basically like using a search engine on the internet...

hope this helps a little...

Ditto!

I couldn't agree more. I am a new person to this site...just joined about 30 minutes ago. I'm also a huge NY Giants fan and I frequent a similar forum on the Giants website called the Corner Forum. It's sad when people jump on other folks for asking legitimate questions whether they're "intelligent" or not. This is a great site. Let's take care of eachother.
