I understand your point, but wouldn't it at the same time give an incentive to other banned accounts to go full retard?

Well they would have to banned from the BPC thread, of course. :D

One of the many proposals I made back in 2011 was to have The Cage Match thread. It didn't gain much traction. My error in all that, or course, was too much conversation, too little action. I should've just opened the thread myself. But I think we're getting somewhere with this.

Cycling forum with immunity from getting banned? It already exists. It's called velorooms.

Think of it this way:

If Putin can release Khodorkovsky prior to the Olympics, why not unleash BPC prior the (real) start of the 2014 season?

After all, if we can't look to a former KGB spy for guidance, then where?

Granville has sortof read my thoughts on this, but a separate thread for BPC could be a viable option.

Although I did try to argue a case for their unbanning, they then went on the personal side.
Again I have no problem countering BPcs actually points. It's rather easy.
And a separate thread would not muck up other threads.

As for other users, for the most part I believe they did not warrant a perma ban.
Really, the BPC issue is the extreme scenario. Not fair to judge all solely on them.

Considering how he got hisself banned, I think it's more likely that lance rides this year's tdf than that the oldborn account ever makes another post here.

I see no reason why BPC or for that matter EnacheV should stay banned or be banned. They appear harmless.

If given the choice, I'd rather see Lance in the TdF.

Well, this is the perma-ban thread, so I guess he's relevant here.
