I was asking in car forums and asking about specific problem in the car I got helpful opinions so I said thanks anyway for the guys there. On of them said really dude people gave you helpful opinions and you only say thanks anyway!
Is thanks anyway bad thing or he's psycho?

I think thanks anyways means thanks but you weren't that helpful.1

"Thanks anyway" means that the advice given was not helpful. The 'anyway' means that you are not thanking them because they were helpful, you are thanking them to be polite, to thank them for trying, despite the advice being given not being anything you could use.
If you wanted to thank them for being helpful, it should have just been "thanks" or "thanks everyone" or "thanks for the help"... something like that.0
