Adam?

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Adam?

Whats the deal with adam? I know he's unfedfat and all, but he hasn't been here in a while, hell, not ever since I got to the forums. What gives? Is this god coming back? Or are we alone? You;d think that if you ran your own forum, you'd maintain, and be active in it. What gives?

Ive never seen the mysterious adam either. he swtill haunts these forums and posts every once in a while. after all he does have to pay for the website and i heard that can be pretty pricey.

dont anger the gods, or the mods.

He came back for like...3 days and then dissappeared again. He just came back, said he was back, and left. Kinda funny in my mind really...

The site is clearly still running and is actually fun. Other than that, I don't see why we need him to hold our hands every step of the way. If he's lost interest in regular participation that is completely up to him and I'm glad the website is still running just fine.

i got to meet the man for a couple months. untill i got banned and had to make this account.

i think the man is just enjoying his vacation. who knows he is probably around here under another account. he is probably just seeing how we do widout him for a year. we'll see.

Who cares about him... as far as i know he is no threat to me

CarExpert: ya he is. Hes the only one that can ban people. He must view these forums as a guest because the one time that he got on in rescent times he banned What striaght up. He probly watches us all.

When I first joined, UFF was a regular member here in the sense that he was on like everyday. He is still here, just doesnt post, I think... :screwy:

He has posted I think twice as unfedfat since I have joined. I would say he is probably running other sites but I know that the SUV forums aren't exactly popular.

Does anyone know if he has any other sites?

Be verwe verwe quite, wook over ur shoulder. there he is. :ticking:

posted by  lectroid

SUV- Forums failed miserably in my opinion. I remember the day he made it was kinda cool, but I dont think many CF members stayed. :ohcrap:

yeah, i remember signing up but then i was like "uuuuhhh no this sucks"

:laughing:

Ya...I think I have like a post count of....2 over there. lol

What is a unofficial vwhobo fan club?

posted by  CarEXPERT

It's kind of like the "down low" where guys get together and have sex with eachother. what else could it be with vwhobo?

posted by  shev

HAHAHAha I didnt know vwhobo gets down like that..

posted by  CarEXPERT

I think im on his ignore list so i can pretty much say whatever the hell i want about him.

"HAHAHAha I didnt know vwhobo gets down like that.."
you got it backwards, thats how he gets it up without viagra, he's an old man if i recall. :laughing:

posted by  shev

The Unofficial Vwhobo Fan Club is a club made by R34 and Snoop to remember the great man that is vwhobo. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

To remember him? where did he go?

posted by  shev

He leaves alot and stuff...

posted by  StiMan

when you have your own family to feed and a real job, you can't spend time online teaching kids like us how cars go fast.

ChrisV = Are you retired? Or do you just enjoy our company?

posted by  Godlaus

i thought hobo was retired....

posted by  shev

Very true. He comes back, from what I can tell, on holidays.

posted by  StiMan

What do you mean to remember him? is he dying?

posted by  CarEXPERT

What makes vwhobo a great man? Knowledge doesn't make someone a great person believe it or not. Around here it's more how you treate people. He was definately not a "great man" there. So, for my question?

posted by  DodgeRida67

thats putting it nicely dodgerida. :laughing:
surprised he lived to retire.

posted by  shev

Ritire from what???

posted by  CarEXPERT

I think i read somewhere he feeds the homeless.... I"d rather starve, poor bastards. :laughing:

posted by  shev

I've seen the guy around. He's cool. Im doin just good without him though. He has a life people get off his nuts. No disrespect intended.

posted by  VMJYogi

He is not retired.

DR: We all have our reasons. I mostly joined cuz he let me back to being a full member and took me off of probation. (After putting me on, but whatever...) :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

I could rant on about that guy a great deal but I won't.

Anyway, I think the board admin is the only one who can do that sort of thing. :2cents:

posted by  DodgeRida67

I know you could. You dont have to like him, I just do. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

ok im sorry this is off topic, i have been a member for a year now (including my other account which got banned). anyways i was wondering, you recently became a member, how did you get 600+ post?

posted by  Ki2AY

He posts constantly, It was originally 50 posts a day, but hes slowed down a bit.

posted by  Zalight

He posts large amounts of useless garbage and shit. He got like 200 posts in his first day or something nuts. :banghead:

posted by  StiMan

Hey whatever the hell happened to R34?



Oh give it up. Hobo has not said anything about you since that little incident yet you persist to defame him. Stop being a little whiney bitch about something that has long and passed. Learn to grow up and be a man. Small fights for little people Dodge...



He obsessivley bugs ChrisV and myself for information(Probably others as well). Day in and day out. I almost feel bad for the guy that you just have to awnswer every misguided question he asks. Even if there are 7 of them within one hour sitting.

posted by  DSMer

No shit.. ChrisV is the smartest person here. I learned so much from him Thanks ChrisV DSMer..etc.

posted by  CarEXPERT

I dunno... he came back for a while under a diff name, but I dont see him on MSN as much as I used to...

posted by  StiMan

I love telling things how they are. Here I go again. Plain and simple...

All Hobo did was give out information on things he knew about and treate people like shit. That is Hobo in a nutshell. He was nothing more and nothing less. No great guy characteristics there.

Ass-kissers are those that put him up high like he is this "great man." He did nothing great. There is nothing you can do on an online forum that would make you a great man. :screwy: When I put it that way, it makes alot of people here seem pathetic. :ohcrap:

posted by  DodgeRida67

Right, including you to? Mr. "If you don't go I'm leaving". Dodge, give it a rest. You've fought your battle and no one cares about the situation. Its an online forum, you don't know him, you'll never meet him, and he does'nt feed you. So why should you even give a shit what he does with his life. Ragging on him only makes it seem as if you're jealous of his position that hes acclaimed.

You're telling it how YOU see it. Or more simply put how you WANT to see it. There seems to be a heavy majority who thinks against your beliefs so what are you to tell me that 99.9% of the people here are crazy brown nosers? Or that you're just pissed for your own reasons? I think I'll vote for the latter of the two.

I respect your knowledge as you're similiar to me in the fact that we are both very young yet have obtained a decent ammount of information to stand out here in these forums. You beleive what you believe and there is nothing you can do to change other peoples minds. Forget it and get back to the DodgeRida that used to help people. Cuz honestly I'm getting sick of constantly feeding hungry minds. There really needs to be more mature people with knowledge to share within these forums. You are undoubtetly good at doing that regardless to what anyone says(I don't care if James Watts himself told you that you did'nt know anything). So get back to it dammit :cussing: . And start answering some of CarEXPERTS questions for godsakes he's driving me crazy and I'm too young to be crazy. :laughing:

posted by  DSMer

:cussing: I have a question, why do you and someother people make BIG ASS posts that say the same thing over and over and doesnt do nothing. sorry

posted by  CarEXPERT

Because I happen to believe in getting my point across in one post instead of 701 little tiny ones. They are'nt saying the same thing and if they are its stressing a point to get across. A majority of the time I'm explaining detailed information to people like you or writing a short article. I think that you could work on your grammatics and that you're typing is'nt up to "par" exactly(for lack of better words). Wich is probably why you see my posts as big, when in fact they are generally small unless I'm making an article. Again, I think you have a problem with reading and if you want to learn about cars you're going to have to read very long articles and books. I'm only 2 years into my "formal" education and I've probably read over 4,500 pages of indepth articles, diagrams, pictures, and text.

Start reading some stuff on howstuffworks.com. It will really help you out. I can give you an entourage of list and articles where you can learn about basic car functions. But you're the one that has to be willing to read..

posted by  DSMer

OK :thumbs: How old are you too be this smart. are you saying you only started to know about cars 2 years ago? how old r u now? I read stuff too but the books only give you the simple basic shit. After I know the basics, I ask myself why does all this do what it does and how it relate to other things, so I ask my questions here. :thumbs:

posted by  CarEXPERT

You obviously aren't reading enough books.

posted by  BanffAutoSpa_ap

The point of the matter is I'm nowhere near smart. I know the basics... and thats after some 5-6 odd years of working on cars and taking classes. I know damn well you can't compare to my stature therfore you don't know the basics. You either need some hands on experience or you need to read your books more thoroughly. I did'nt have half as many questions as you did when I was arround your stage of learning. Thats because I read, and re-read until I understood something.

You're not asking questions that can only be learned from experience, you're asking questions that have answers in fine print and can be learned from a book. If you were to ask me, I want to install some aftermarket headers for my 95 Camaro wich brand would give me a better pulse flow and larger CFM. THAT would be a question that can't be learned in any book. Those kind of things can only be concluded from experience.

However you're asking simple shit like does an automatic transmission loose power when it shifts. Ofcourse not, it gives continous power throughout its shifts. If you read a chapter of a book that explained manual transmission you would know that...

posted by  DSMer

You are missing my point...

You seem to think I'm attacking Hobo. No, I'm not, not at all. I'm speaking to the people who think he's this "great man." I'm asking them what make him a great man because simply put, he isn't one here on these forums for the reasons I've already said. As I said before... there is nothing on an online forum you can do to be a "great man."

Hobo can and will do and act as he pleases. I don't have a problem with it. What I do have a problem with is people that back wrong doing and frankly I believe the only reason most of the people on this forum respect Hobo is because of the nature of his seemingly bad personality. If you had a gun to your head, you'd act nice. His attitude can feel like a gun to your head sometimes. I know you know what I'm talking about.

In summary, I'm not trying to defame Hobo. I'm simply saying he has done nothing on these forums to be looked upon as a great man for many reasons. One being there is nothing you can do on an online forum to become a great man, and another reason being he had a bad attitude towards people and that isn't a great man at all.


One more issue I'd like to clear up.


Here is what that was about. He was treating people wrong. There was a choice. The choice was either he stop treating people like they were shit, or I wasnt going to be a part of this place. Basically I was saying to him that he better stop acting in the manner he was acting and if not then I'm sure as hell not going to be a part of it. It's like leaving a person about to commit a crime.

posted by  DodgeRida67

Whatever your reason, I don't really care at this point. However, I do care if you get your ass in these threads and start helping people with their questions.

posted by  DSMer

I simply appreciate Hobo allowing me to come back after being on probation. That is that. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

I don't know if it is genuine self deprecation and/or modesty, but that is one of the most sensible things I've seen you post. And I don't mean that as a flame. I think you may just have just saved yourself from becoming a peacock. Alleluja brother welcome to the real world of us mere mortals. :mrgreen:

posted by  Wally

Its being truthful. I never claimed to know it all. Afterall I'm only 2-3 years into my education. Its impossible for me to be as smart as some people who have been in it for 50. I'll consider myself slightly above an average car enthuisiast. And if they don't know it all at 50 years, I damn sure as hell don't know much of anything compared to how much their is to learn....

posted by  DSMer

Im 1-1.5 months into my education so im not as you ill give you that but im smart as some people here too :smoke:

posted by  CarEXPERT

Haha 2 months. Haha, what have you learned how to read a micrometer. Or how a wrench works? :laughing: . A good majority of the people here are'nt very knowledgeable in the car field. Most come looking for help because they know nothing at all. So comparing yourself to the average CF member would'nt exactly be putting the standard up there.

I'd suggest you stick to learning from your teacher, text books, and visual aids. Those are always the best in the first stages of learning...

posted by  DSMer

I know alot about basics but I never said anyting about repairing and fixing things. What did you do DSMer when you first started to learn and then whatdid you do after? How long did ittake? I want to be smart as you!!

posted by  CarEXPERT

No you don't know alot about basics. You're steadily asking basic questions such as fuel delivery. Thats pretty damn basic. Again, I don't know everything and I'm nowhere as near as smart as I want to be. Everyone has to start somewhere but I'll tell you I did'nt haggle every automotive person I could find. I learned alot from watching my father, whom is an automotive engineer, reading magazines and actually getting my hands dirty. It has take me an accumulative of 6 odd years and $4200+ worth of education to get to where I'm at.

I'm saddened to say thats its not going to stop there. Maybe after 5 more years and $80,000+ more I'll be close to where I want to be.

posted by  DSMer

Ok DSMer I dont know that much but I know some. You took automotive classes? how do you do that? Should I take them? Give me some advice DSMer so I wont bug you so much. How do you spend 4000g on classes?

posted by  CarEXPERT

Its called college and its not cheap; thats how you spend $4000+ on classes, books, and tools.

Should you go? Thats up to you, I can't tell you what to do with your life.

posted by  DSMer

No offense CarExpert, but I suspect it will take more than 80k to teach you anything. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

I know more that you so SHUT YO MOUTH :laughing:

posted by  CarEXPERT

i think it would be great if one of the mods banned adam. or can mods even ban people?

posted by  shev

No, only adam can ban people, and I doubt he would ban himself.

Why would you want to ban him anyway?

posted by  Zalight

It would be funny, he could just unban himself or something. just wondering if mods could ban or not.

posted by  shev

Only Adam can ban people.

CarExpert, I really doubt that.
