Which is exactly what your ill-judged and pointless intervention achieved today. I treated this topic with some disdain till today, but if your action is part of the new regime around here, rather than just an individual aberration, I can guarantee a further exodus of sensible, rational posters who choose not to be treated like little kids, especially not by a brand new mod.

Maarten's life may be a fascinating subject, but it's not the topic of the thread, so let's discuss Babes on Bikes shall we?


"Get a life" is not something that needs to be edited out c.q. 'censored'! It does not constitute an invitation to a discussion about that person's life, or to a fight. It is an expression, no more. Giving me a 'warning' for the expression "get a life" leaves me speechless.

Lol, hamster, get a life :D

Pretty sure it's just the rude way you usually respond to an opinion different than yours. "You should get a life", while not the most offensive comment one can make, is a totally uncalled for remark which only intends to have a go at the poster and not the post. So just admit you're wrong instead of trying to guilt trip the mod with this tired "exodus/the forum is dying" nonsense.

"Especially by a brand new mod". Lol. As if mods needed a trial period before they could enforce the rules. Not their fault some people feel entitled to some non-existant privileges.

No surprise to see this kind of irrelevant response from you, or that no apology was forthcoming from RR. Kindly don't presume to tell an old, native English speaker what words or expressions mean in English. No, I was not wrong, the response was.

Apology from Red Rick? You can't make this stuff up. The only irrelevant thing was you telling Maarten to get a life. Hence it was deleted. Post, not poster. Really easy to grasp. Are we expected to believe you didn't mean it in a condescending tone? What else can those words mean? You seem to think you can call people whatever crosses your mind and, if mods do something about it, blame political correctness and overzealousness, when they're just trying to keep some minimal standards.

It's been dead for three years, no? Or do you have any idea if it moved on to a better place?

Though the forum might not be dead or dying, things sure do change (no value judgement about the quality of the change intended here). I haven't been too active for a bit, but I noticed some regular posters (from the café) being gone for a long time and only now realized they got permabanned and when I wanted to see the discussion which no doubt ensued I realized the member suspension appreciation/depreciation thread got locked. This remembered me that we used to have separate appreciation and depreciation threads for riders back in the day. Furthermore thinking about other regulars who got permabanned my thoughts of course went first to Ryo Hazuki. I'm a nostalgic person though, sometimes I miss all the dysfunctional old habits of this forum, the legendary trolls and admittedly also some more functional regulars who became more inactive (gained a life?). Well, what can I say, πάντα ῥεῖ......

On this day, the four-year anniversary of the forum dying, let us all come together and share a moment of silence.

And I know I can't figure out whether you complied (is that the right word?) to my request, or if it's a lame-joke reaction...
