Boomcie - nice to know you brother, but you crossed the line when you insulted the kitty. Your days are numbered!
LOL, nothing inappropriate about looking after your backside like me.

Who do we see to overthrow this dictatorship called CN Forum? Can we have an election and have opposing candidates who have different platforms on the way we should run the forum? I say we need a more laissez faire approach.

So I've only just returned to this hell hole and I'm already receiving unfair treatment by the mod(s)… If anyone would be so kind as to point out the inappropriate passage in a thread about TOILET PAPER ORIENTATION, I would greatly appreciate it.

It’s absolutely disgraceful that you greet me back into your narrow minded little community by shutting down the first thing I produce. How ridiculous would it be if every thread that the faint-hearted deems inappropriate has to be closed on the spot?

As long as I’m behaving decently, I would not like to be harassed by you or any of your minions.

A discussion about toilet paper orientation is not inappropriate. I will now wait for you to overturn your decision (which you won’t, because you should never give in to a terrorist’s demands)

Why has my thread 'Order of comments on articles' been moved from the cafe to the About the website section of the forum?
My post has absolutely nothing to do with the website. It seems to be a very strange decision, a total mistake.

And here I thought it had everything to do with the website -- where the articles appear.......

I was not talking about articles on cyclingnews. I was talking about articles and other things on websites in general. I referred to youtube, nothing to do with cyclingnews, and BBC Sport, again nothing to do with cyclingnews.
I have no idea how the commenting on articles on cyclingnews works because I have never bothered to read comments on cyclingnews articles. I just read articles and come to the forum. If my comments apply to the commenting system on cyclingnews articles it is an incidental coincidence.
Please move the thread back.

OK, that was not clear to me from your original posting.

Let it be. I no longer give a rat’s a$$. It’s not about some stupid thread anymore, I wouldn't even post in it if it was reopened now. I’m not a puppet.

I know there are some good up and coming moderators out there. I know they aren't too high and mighty to engage in a conversation and treat users with the respect they deserve.

Don’t put up with injustice, don’t be intimidated and don’t be muzzled by an oligarchic authority.
