The samba has it's share of bad eggs. There are too many people trolling the site looking for someone to pick on. The overall community is great but it only takes one bad reply from some tard trying to show how big his vitrual member is to ruin perfectly innocent threads. I've found that the samba is populated with a lot of purists who think old VWs should only be stock. God help you if you want to modify the car in any way. You'll get 400 guys lining up to tell you how lame it is to use anything other than OG parts. Most forums and free clasifieds end up that way. You just have to blow through all the retards and mine the good info and customers. The Amba is still the best VW site on the net and will continue to be in the forseeable future.

Everyone has had at least a crappy experience on thesamba. Hell-- even some of the mods there have to deal with bad times once in a while. (although im not making excuses for any of them. Its just the nature of the beast!).
More or less like bumblebuggy said, you just have to ignore some of the assholes and try to go about your business, and hope whoever is bugging you will quickly go away. (which most will given enough time).
Having to deal with crap from people online is everywhere.. On most, if not all websites!

Now on the other hand, there have been a few "off-shoot" websites start up in the past because some got sick of how things were going on thesamba, such as this site called; "Itinerant Air-cooled.com". But i'll leave it at that for now..
So keep enjoying it for all that its worth, and ignore the troublemakers!!

lol... look me up on the samba... see what i deal with... it doesn't matter what i say, it gets twisted in to something else and turns in to a rant. there are some good people out there... they just haven't found the less hostile sites yet... you can still get help on the samba if you can find your way through all the bs first.

There is one no bs site you frequent, well maybe 2, but like FMBC on here a lot of people have face to face meetings so the keyboard commandos are less likely to pop-up. Samba is to big and not as much interaction. Oh yeah, welcome aboard!

I've learned a lot from The Samba and yea there are folks on there that just post stupid s@#t. A guy by the name of Allen is one that comes to mind. He just likes to be a thorn! You get enough ppl on here and those same problems will show up here.

Lots of people there are so quick to point out things you are doing wrong, and not answer the origional question. it gets really annoying. everytime i post a question, i always get a few @ssholes who say something along the lines of "It won't work, and your stupid for asking". and others will just start suggesting stuf, thats you know to be wrong. I do learn a lot of things from the sambe tho. But you really have sort out for yourself, who knows what they are talking about.

I have found the best way to use the Samba is to search out the solution to your problem and only post a question as a last resort if you don't find the info you need. There is alot of knowledge over there but alot of attitudes as well.

I caught hell from a couple douche bags because I asked a simple question. All I wanted to know was would 70 beetle fenders fit a 68 beetle. I later got my answer from Jerome but all I wanted was to learn and I got shot down over something meaningless. I won't use the samba anymore because of that.

never been on the forums but asking a question to learn should never be bad thing. I like to look thru the classified ads . its like that everywhere dealing with cars, cycles, heck even guitars forums- someone always knows more and some no less but sharing is the key to the future of our hobby, or collection or daily driver. just my 2 cents

X2 the classifieds are a good asking price guage. Just drop the low and high and take a median.
Also helps to guage the rareness of any thing that you find at a swapmeet or a parts box with your last purchase.
I use it alot for that.

I haven't got flamed too bad. I think it depends on what sections you post in. I find the type 3 guys are pretty cool and even the purists don't go totally crazy when you talk about modifying the car.

I spend way too much time in the classifieds...

thats the key, I use only the classifieds. Seen to much crap in the forums so only browse those unless i see a tech question I can help with. have seen it many times posting an answer to a question and the keyboard commandos come out raging aginst the asker. Not a good way to propigate the hobby. Have talked with Everett on this and not much he can do, its just to big to police. Oh well, its a good selling medium just do not try and get any tech out of it without the search. Lot of good info there but not a fan of his search engine for the site.

I totaly agree. The one thing I hate the most about the Samba isn't the A-holes because they are everywhere, But the thread stealers. you know the people that feel that they need to take a Question someone has asked in a completely non related direction. Like asking how to lower a bus and within five to six replys someone has redirected your question into tuning thier carbs.
