The beauty of it all is there are mods posting in those threads as well and these forumites still don't get it.

How do you find out which moderators are currently online, if you want to report something? Take a look at the last page of the sky thread, and tell me if noddy69 isn't outright admitting his or her intentions. I have nothing against the individual personally, and will simply put the person on ignore, but the lack of moderation in the last month or so has gotten to be riduculous.

Can a mod not do something about airstreams constant arguing with Alberto fans? Even people that do not like Alberto are starting to wonder whether he just does it to troll or because he likes to get into fights with people. It's getting super annoying, every time someone says something positive about Alberto he comes and starts the same argument he's had 932950021984 times before.

For many weeks I have reported his posts when deserved, but I am yet to see any actions. He constantly brings the clinic the the RR-section and it is obvious that he is hardcore trolling

It's a very low estimation of forumities' awareness. Even an offensive one.

Oh, I remembered one more argument: a rider with one life cannot beat other rider with two in the Tour cos' we know what consequenses getting popped in France is fraught. Though, I won't be surprised if Contador bluffs to the bitter end. The guy truly has no fear. Being busted twice in the Tour would be a new cycling milestone. It would be an instant 5 year prison term

I have also reported some of his posts for clinic in RR and also no mod action.

So:

- Clinic talk where it doesn't belong
- Trolling
- Starting fights
and also he said Alberto should burn in hell and should be shot, I know insulting riders is allowed on this forum but this seems much more serious. Maybe he is joking but it is not funny.

I say 2 year ban and a year salary fine and next offence = life ban and 5 years in jail

Ryo has been banned multiple times for laughing at riders crashing, so wishing them to burn in hell should be against the rules.
