A similar policy regarding trolling accusations would be much appreciated. Accusations of trolling are often used to shut down a legitimate debate.

For example, ScottSoCal accused me of trolling in the "US Politics" thread for defending an argument which was explicitly supported by no fewer than four current SCOTUS justices (Souter, Ginsburg, Breyer and Stevens).

Also, several forum members have accused me of trolling in the "Upper-body training for cyclists" thread simply for defending a non-mainstream approach to pro cyclist training (always respectfully and with links to reliable sources).

That's very funny, hardcore sock-puppetry. I know some little people who will enjoy this too.


(Good band as well, glad I saw this)

Sorry, we don't allow the return of sockpuppets or previously perma banned members.

We expect people to read the forum rules before they post here and abide by them at all times, which you did neither of.

Our policy is strict for a reason, unfortunately you'll have to find another cycling forum to post comments.

Cheers
