In all internet forums you have some nice people but mainly people that like to argue or put down just for the sake of it or because they get their jollies off of it especially due to anonymity.
    I'll mark 10 years registered on this forum in October. One might look at my post count and say that I've been an active user. I've been to Nastysock meets, I've been to ClubWRX meets. Yes, they're both car forums, and have personalities that range from subdued to obnoxious...every forum has their crusty OG's. Yet I would maintain that there is a large difference in the culture here, versus nearly any other car forum in which I've attempted to participate. (Nasioc, 6speedonline, the G35 forums, etc.)

    I haven't been on nasioc but I love this place. I feel like I can post a thread here and not worry about getting hit with the OMG that rare topic was already covered 3 years ago, you should have spent three more hours digging through old threads before you wasted our bandwidth and started a new thread spiel I see all the time on the other Subie forum I'm a part of. Lots of knowledge over there but there's too many you know whats over there. Great forum here, thanks to all the great admins that have put many hours into it!

    The thing I love about this forum is the feeling of camaraderie and support. You'll get to know the usual suspects around here pretty quickly, and hopefully learn to recognize/respect the knowledge that they possess. Even though each of us has different levels of experience, we were all "newbs" once. Unlike NASIOC, I've found that the truly knowledgeable folks here (you know who you are) tend to remember that, and will take a "newb" by the hand and help them, instead of tease them.

    We do have guys with certain pet peeves. USUALLY they're nice about pointing out problems. If someone behaves like a tool, you can either safely ignore them, or report the post and the moderators will sort out whether or not a real problem exists.

    I love Nasioc. I like that there is WAY more content than here. This forum is just too slow for me but the people are GREAT! I will admit that (even you Mikie lol).

    I get along with everyone (well just about) so Nasioc doesn't bother me. I even post in OT over there!!

    I'm in the BRfatal bandwagon on illegal HID kits. Now that he's gone, that's my pet peeve. I try to be factual and civil about it though.

    I agree 100%. In my experience, the NASIOC environment sucks.

    I stopped posting on NASIOC and only go there as a very, very last resort to search. From my experience, the members there are complete jerks (for lack of a more politically correct term) with out a lot of intelligence (not all - but at least most of the ones I've run into).

    For example, I bought a new ProSport Boost gauge and just last week posted there just to see where others had installed the boost sending unit in the engine bay and get their experiences with it. Not one person answered my question. The multiple replies I got were not helpful such as "prosport gauges suck," "You question is stupid," "A mechanical boost gauge doesn't have a sending unit" (hint: my boost gauge is electronic), etc.....

    Who cares if they are douchy/complete jerks.. Not every community online will be nice. There are always *******s everywhere.. :shrug:

    You can't let what people say get you all flustered.. Take it with a grain of salt. Go there for information/parts/meet info/ect.. If someone posts in a thread with a dumbass comment just forget it and move on.
