The last post on the thread laid it out. I never went on that thread but the name of the last person to post there piqued my interest as it had a female inference. Something about misogyny. Oh well, the internets are full.

This was without question the most popular thread on the entire forum. That equals traffic, which equals advertising, which equals money.

There was nothing offensive in the thread. In the past photos were included of women from the backside with no under garments, we deleted and banned those.

Nearly every photo was professionally shot. Many of the photos were of women wearing regular cycling clothing, many of them professional cyclists or amateur racers. Some were nostalgic looking. Some were of famous people.

The vast majority of the photos were no more offensive, or of women no more or less scantily clad, than what you would see in any woman's magazine today, aimed at female readers (Cosmo, Allure, etc). I would even make the argument that nearly every one of those photos are photoshopped, and thus present a dangerous view of what a women should look like, while photos of healthy women on bicycles is a positive thing for women to aspire to.

I spend less time than I did in the past as a mod. If this thread is removed permanently, like many of you, I'll spend even less time here without question.


Post of the year.

Removing the thread is a solution to a non-existent problem. PC run amok. Again.

Scott, Alpe, thanks for the memories. I certainly will be spending a whole lot less time here. At times it's been a rocky road, but all in all, it was a bunch of fun. Ciao!

thanks scott and nowhereman for all the hours you have devoted finding quality content. I know the amount of dedication it takes
I hope that the site has great luck in promoting social justice.
It was all I could do to submit this comment I don’t know where the inspiration came from…

Agree with you all. I think the forums will go on but it will not without notice that you all are not participating.

Political correctness and social justice gone wild here.

Big thanks to you dude, for taking BoB under your wing once I dropped out (around the 3m mark, I think). Just so you know, there is life outside BoB, though you will always feel an attachment to something that was unique. You know that $hit must be farked up when Alpe, Scott, Krebby and I are all on the same page.

The next step would be to close the religion thread.

Would not doubt it. In fact I expect it.

This is a UK based company CN correct? That's why people like Samuel Adams/ John Hancock / John Adams / Thomas Jefferson / George Washington were popular here in the USA. We did not need no stinking censorship. :D
