Welcome to the site. New members are almost always accepted as they are, warts, feathers, and all. However, when a new member starts with accusations of rip off, animosities may result.
You seem to be saying that websites, such as SOC, rip off pictures and comment on them. You may be confused about ownership of pictures and content on internet sites. The pictures in question are marked as being on the Samba site. Perhaps you have an ownership interest in Samba. If not, then you don't own Samba pictures, even in you own the car shown in the picture. Fair Use doctrine would not likely prohibit one car site from posting pics from another site, but that's a decision that involves those two parties, SOC and Samba, not you.
No one on here wants to bust your juevos rancheros, so maybe you want a mulligan, eh? It's really not all that hard to get along on this site.
Jim, So sorry to start out on the wrong foot on my first day! I was surprised to see my car there being commented on and some being negative. I apologize for saying that. I sure would like a mulligan and to start again fresh!
