When has that ever happened? Provide a link please (forum rules ;)), otherwise ill have to conclude this is much ado about nothing and pot kettle etc.

And "the lie perpetuated".

Thanks to the mods on finally banning a very obvious troll in the LeMond thread.

IMO, a week is not enough considering the trolling was incessant. It also irks that the last time around, the same poster was allowed to troll incessantly when everyone else was being banned for complaining about the trolling. Exact same behaviour, different outcomes :( . Why?

Maybe it is time to start banning people from certain threads when it is obvious their only intention is to troll, especially when they have a history of doing so.

Also noticeable, there are plenty who like to throw barbs but have very little interest in discussing actual facts.

Shows maturity to just let this happen (suspensions and such) and not get embroiled with one member or the other.

Having you talk about maturity really is the height of irony, who is it that has insinuated that LeMond is an alcoholic, oh yeah real mature indeed. Never mind all the other petty insults you have hurled at posters(not trolls either) during your time here. Yeah, yeah the height of maturity you are.

If I am not mistaken, this thread is called an appreciation/depreciation thread so....

This is technically the "Moderators" thread, I can move your post to the "members appreciation/depreciation thread" if you want me to? :)

I think your post is fine here though...

There's a link at the top of all pages, when you are in a thread, and as well when you are browsing a sub-forum: http://i.imgur.com/A8APffF.png?1

Most of us in the PRR forum would like to discuss the racing that is happening, while a couple of members insist on stalling conversation every chance they get by debating the worthiness of the location, parcours, coverage, riders present etc, etc. Can something be done to keep the Australian racing thread readable?

Having race specific threads, rather than one to cover the entire Australian summer, would be a help, to make the Evans Ocean and Herald Sun races free of that argument.

That's fine with me if you want to start a race only thread for each race, we do that anyway during the regular season.

Happy to do it, as long as there's a separate thread to bog down with arguments about how worthy said races are.

Yes feel free to make the race threads, they can be kept purely for discussion about those races.

Shouldn't that thread in question be kept purely to race-talk, while those who wants to discuss how worthy (or not) the race is can make their own thread?
Or maybe a general thread about distribution of WT points...

The moderators here are either asleep or so high on drugs they can't read. I just threatened to kill another poster and I haven't been banned. What the f*uck do you have to do to get a permaban around here, kill a mod?

This isn't an actively moderated forum, but since you asked so nicely I'll oblige your request.

The former for me as it was 5am when you posted. Thanks for making our job a little easier.

I did not see this "jewel". Saw where you threatened to kill Scott but not the moderators.

Never ever have I wanted to see anyone banninated. That was before I read the garbage you posted in the politics thread directed at Scott and then this dumpster fire post. I would say have a nice day but that just will not happen.

A jewel it was! I haven't seen a post quite like that one in my time as a moderator.

I gotta give him props though for helping mods do their jobs so much easier! lol

If it would not be too much to ask, could everyone follow Wallace's lead and self report any transgressions to the moderators thread? Another helpful tidbit would be to make sure to insult and threaten mods, that way we don't have to have those silly conversations with each other about proper action to take when we can go straight to permaban.... :D

I'm just kidding, I was being facetious. Obviously this was an extraordinary situation in that the poster made mods jobs easy by self reporting his offence to the moderators thread.

I joke about the post in the moderators thread but the offending post that has since been removed was no laughing matter. Wallace threatened to kill another forum member and even claimed to have this forum member's home address. Let's all hope that what was said was just internet bluster and not something that would be followed through with. I also commend the person that was threatened for maintaining their composure during the exchange. Personally, I think Wallace would have his hands full if he were to actually show up at said persons residence... :(
