So, everyone should be allowed discuss every subject in every thread. Why don't CN just have a single thread about everything.

There is only one rule in the RR thread, no discussion on doping. It really shouldn't be that hard to follow and rightly should have consequences when fragrantly ignored.

It also was a joke though. Thought I'd maybe point that out (one more time)

Maybe what should be considered is that some of these posters have always had it in for Airstream whether he posted clinic stuff in RR or not..

No problem - I was replying at the time and didn't see it.

Why?
They got banned for breaking a rule - it matters little who they are or if others celebrate it or not.

Agree Airstream should have been banned and he probably should have been banned sooner rather than later as it was obvious that he was effectively asking for it, but he was certainly not helped by other peoples' approach towards him. Why do you think he was becoming so erratic and posting such references, asides because of the comedic value that is?

I agree Airstream should have been banned earlier, especially for what he said of Contador in the clinic. But this time I think he didn't deserve it. It's sad to see how some posters were baiting him into it. Coincidentally his last message was addressed to a mod for slandering him. I think Airstream is knowledgeable, but he has some limitations conveying his thoughts, and some posters take advantage of that.
