BTW, you're new too.

Yes, he's relatively new. But my 5500+/- posts makes me not so new.

Let me explain... If a person joined in 2009 and has posted just 34 comments (I just read a post by someone like this yesterday) does that make them an old veteran because they joined 8 years ago? Not to me it doesn't. It makes them no different or newer than a person that joined a month ago and has posted 34 comments.

Why? Because there's a certain skillset you gain with experience in posting comments that time alone cannot give. Obviously a member becomes better at formulating, articulating and posting a comment with the increasing amount of comments that they post. Can this same experience be gained by passing time?

Okay, my ridiculous retort is over. Back to regularly scheduled commenting. :D

Cheers :)

Now I won't be able to read Pisto's comments in the (unlikely) event that Valverde will win Líege solo, I don't know if thats a good or a bad thing.

Well Pisto only copped a 7 day holiday so I'm sure by mid next week we will all be lucky to read the beauty that are El Pistoleros thoughts on how shockingly bad and undeserving anyone who doesn't solo from 100 k's out to win a race truly is :D

You mean how shockingly bad any rider not named Boonen, Gilbert or Contador is...

Why can mods and admins not be on your ignore list? Is this because they can't PM you otherwise?

Yes, that's part of the reason. The other part is that you can't just decide to ignore moderators, otherwise the entire forum would ignore us all. :D

If you or anyone else feels that they need to ignore a mod there's a bigger problem going on and it would be best if you contacted a different mod to help facilitate a solution that works for you. Feel free to contact me or another moderator via PM anytime. :)

That's a hilarious idea to me... having mods and admin, but members being able to put them on their ignore list. Brilliant, in a totally absurdist comedy way. Straight out of a Woody Allen script. :D

Three confirmed kills for King Boonen so far. Two more and he becomes an Ace.
