This was the greatest of all time #botlogic and it wasn't even a bot! just a pretend bot! :lol:

I had lunch with Richie last week. I would be the last person a doper would want to hang out with.

I found him very open, direct, and confident. He was clearly very passionate about the sport and his team. I asked a lot of questions and he gave me very direct, non-evasive, answers. I have had the same discussion with dozens of riders over the years but few have been as direct as Richie.

If there is a policy, I've never seen it and I've spent lots of time reviewing Immediate Media's Terms & Conditions and I know the forum rules intimately as I've written some of them. The website and forum are not separate entities, the forum is a section within the website. All content posted in both places are subject to the same terms and conditions but the forum has a set of supplemental rules that do not supercede the websites terms and conditions.

You're asking if they should be separated but you haven't given a reason why?


I post on other forums operated by Immediate Media which have a policy of 'unofficially separating parts of a forum, especially if you are quoting posts from someone who is not a member of THIS forum, and therefore has no right of reply.

On a purely personal note it seems pointless to drag across posts from the comments section - Surely we have enough material to keep this part of the forum functioning.

I don't see the problem with it, they can come into the forum if they're not already banned.

I'll look into it to see if there's something that I missed, I hope you're not sending me on a wild goose chase...



Well spotted. :)

never believed he was always on bread and water, just a different version of bread and water. He came out of Linda McCartney and British Cycling for chrissakes, they never won the swag of gold cos they were anti the dregs. [sic]

this was unreal
Because Porte was going to start talking sky doping programs there and then
The silence on sky since then has said it all
some people clearly tweet according to who follows them...if sky riders are following you then sky are safe....in his planet.

The way RR and Walsh went after Lance, whilst vouching for Lemond with precious bot logic (Walsh claimed Gregs illness was due to him riding clean; RR trolled the Lemond thread about EPO not existing in cycling before 1991 and claimed Lance offered people big money to spill on Lemond, a claim backed up only by Lemond) still makes me wonder.
The poster Maxiton (who got chased out of this forum for daring to question Lemond) once proposed Walsh & RR got paid by Greg to go after Lance.
I'm not convinced that happened, but it would explain a thing or two about a thing or two.

When are you claiming this happened, before he was a mod of after?

sorry which part of the bolded?
Max getting chased out? That's not my claim, just what I've been told. Not much more to say about it tbh. Matter of perspective no doubt.

Fwiw, I loved his contributions, intelligent, funny and amical, really miss him.
Max, be good.

Some more classic bot logic going on this morning:

But there should be an acknowledgement that elite sport has more in common with the military than the sport you or I play


Sport is like the military, apparently :surprised:

The part about maxiton getting 'chased out' over that claim. Did this happen before or after he was a mod? He's been a member for a long time, long before me so I don't know what happened before my time but I do know why he left this last time, which would have been after he was a mod and it wasn't because he made a claim that LA offered up big money to spill the beans on Lemond.

I didn't say over that particular claim. But thanks for expanding. Fair enough of course.

Which reminds me of another poster who's gone missing, doperhopper who aptly proposed to retitle The Climb as Mein Climb.

Fine sniper, but you're avoiding the question that I asked. It was a simple question, I'm not sure why you can't answer it... :confused:

Was he chased out before or after he was a mod?

I don't wanna go Simon Cope on you ;), but I honestly don't know.
Could it be both..and..? Again though, I don't no.
It certainly wasn't a critique at you btw. I think you did well to appoint him at the time.
But let's discuss bot logic.

I was discussing bot logic when I asked you a simple question that took a number of comments to finally get an answer, and if you don't mind, please leave the thread moderation to mods...

No need to antagonize, irondan.
You first post/question was unclear, as you bolded two statements that were unconnected.
Not my fault if "it took a number of comments to finally get an answer". That happens when questions are unclear to the recipient.
I also stand by my first post: I don't have much more to say about it tbh.
p.s. as I added to my last post ( shortly after you replied):
it certainly wasn't a critique at you. I think you did well to appoint him at the time.
