I thought that you had some integrity, that you would appreciate such a public servant, in spite of all the rubbish that you post. I thought that you were not so bad. What happened to you?


Scott says he reported it. I tried to report it, and got the "already reported" message. So the mods have seen it. Thus far it apprears that no visible action has been taken, as the post still stands, unedited.

What happened to the polite new requirements for the politics thread?


I looked at that thread. Some rando accuses another rando of having a "persecution complex," then complains a gentle chiding by another poster deserves forum discipline.

Just let the snowflakes melt, Rupert.


And we know that you, having amassed 5000 posts saying nothing more than “cycling dopes, filthy, icky; Lance were the doperest” and sometimes ranging into the mod thread to denounce injustices in the virtual world, are beyond all snowflakery as it pertains here?


Exactly! And I can tolerate personal attacks from you quite easily.

My good man. We all know that did not nearly rise to the level of a personal attack. It was a questioning of the criteria you’ve established by which to weigh in. (And why you feel the need to do so in this thread w/o creds but the biogrphical. But that’s OT.)

There’s a history of the “randoms” in the pol thread.

Nice to see you. Hey I hear Lance still has terrible taste in music and art and was doing shots in a bar.

I reported it. First time ever reporting a post. The post in and of itself wasn’t all that bad but given the recent history on this board I felt as if Tonton was baiting me to ban me. I’ve been assured by another mod that wasn’t the case. I invited Tonton to PM me to discuss. So far no response.

Given the thickness of the ice and the slippery banana peel I’m standing on wrt this forum I’m confident, if reversed, had I questioned Tonton’s integrity, I would have - without a doubt - been banned forever. My opinion.

My sense has always been that it's a tricky thing for lots of mods to cruise into the contentious points of the politics thread without being perceived as having some flex behind their positions. Over time some have shown to be a lot more adept at this and nuanced on the issues than others. Alpe’s biases were known, but, to his credit, he stayed away from coming down on the topics that he wasn’t comfortable with when he was around for the discussions.

Tonton’s appearances have been more bluster than substance as if his positions should be assumed rather than elaborated. I would think you could disarticulate that stance without making an issue of personal integrity.

Only a week ban for racism? Sounds very lenient to me.

The comments made were borderline towards riders of certain nationalities. But from our view the intention was there and deserved some time out. It was also the first time we’ve had to deal with that poster, so we usually go for a reduced ban first time with harsher penalties for repeat offenders.

Could something be done about posts that are completely unrelated to doping being posted in the Clinic? I strongly feel those posts should go in the Road section.

1.) El Pistolero has been banned until 8/5/2018 for trolling immediately after coming back from a ban for trolling.


Interesting, considering it's now 4/6/2018. :p
