The Rise and Fall of CN Forum thread was closed because we all had our say. Well I didn't get to have my say, and after reading that thread my say is that Parrulo sure posts a lot of crap and nonsense. Usually in that order, but sometimes a large helping of nonsense followed by a steaming order of crap. Ok, I've had my say now. I'm not sure what point it serves, me writing this, but it's of greater benefit to this forum than anything that comes off his keyboard.

I wasn't aware about that thread until now, I would've liked to have said something too. I echo your sentiments. It's sad to see CN does nothing to moderators who slander others or mock first time posters.

Well said, he is a noted loose cannon who has no place on a moderation team.

Today I found out about this thread. I would like to Thank CN for the forums; giving us a place to discuss cycling

It's true that some posters ignore the rules and others bicker, but the majority of the posts are informative and interesting.

Thank You!

The funniest thing to me is that one can:
- post thousands of absolutely zero in terms of informativeness and interest posts like 'it’s getting annoying', ‘lolz 10 char', '+1 10 char', 'i like it 10 char' or 'everyone who doesn’t agree with me knows nothing about cycling’;
- call others trolls just because of the fact he/she disagrees without having proper arguments but 'I don't like it. That's it';
- call others posters deluded, to estimate their logic and call this damaged sometimes;
- ask about LSD in quite offensive manner;
- discuss posters instead of cycling;
and… to be unpunished.
While other writes an absolutely harmless post with a word 'anti-doping' and gets a ban allegedly ‘cos it became the last step. As to 'the hole in the head', I may be wrong surely. But sadly I reason in other language, in which such a cue could be handled only like a joke. Just a metaphore on the subject of how fight against lies could be implemented. Back to Argos/Saxo thread anyways, the topic was opened in racing thread. Does anyone think the answer can be given, using exceptionally racing criterion? The decision will be made solely on racing aspect or what? If the decision had been made purely based on sport results, the thread wouldn’t have been opened — because it's no longer needed.
Well, I’d be glad to observe some consistency in this regard. But unfortunately one barely can hope for that given some of the mods.

By the way, would you mind not claiming every second post that i am.mocking your English and claiming to have superior English myself? i am doing no such thing and absolutely no.interpretation of any post i have made in about a year could bring you to such a conclusion. So stop.

Would be appreciated. ( well.not really, just stop trolling) cheers.

He's just unbearable.

His thread is still active and mine has been closed. Where's the error?

Two-day ban is just too soft.

Funny to see the Contador fanboys getting upset because airstream is hitting them with the truth.
