This whole thread is crazy. I come from many years of scratch-building off-road scaler/crawler/replica trucks, and that world has issues for sure (n00bs asking questions on FB rather than Google or looking at the forums) but mostly there's a lot of love there.

Facebook won because "everybody's on Facebook". And yet Facebook is terrible because -
I believe quite strongly that a new - I hate this term - social media tool will emerge some day. One that hits a sweet spot between a Facebook group and what forums were good at (build threads, event listings, club management, tools/techniques, product guides...)
