Is this place an Armstrong fan forum?

I was banned from RBR for being critical of the bias that one moderator was showing in banning several users. The moderator there made it clear in a PM to me that it was his board and the only criticisms allowed were those aimed against the enemies of Armstrong. Not only did I not agree, I publicly said so. Banned. Not once did I violate their rules. No. I got the boot because my opinion did not match theirs. I'm angry. The RBR mod there that thinks he is so cool, will get his one day. They lost a user and so here I am. It's a new day on this forum.

Welcome, I think you will find that this forum is a bit more open.

Welcome!

Other than 3 weeks in July, this forum is pretty civilized. :D

Says the guy who nominated himself as the #1 Armstrong hater:rolleyes::D

I never said I was open, I said the forum was. I have made up my mind on the subject, and I see no reason or argument that will sway me otherwise.

Coolhand, Frustrated midget masters racer with no life, no athletic ability, and zero intellectual power. He has chased off so many people from that board it is like a ghost town.
 
Ha! I registered there and never made a single post in that place after surfing it a while.

You're more than welcome here, and I'd encourage you to head on over to The Clinic and share in some of our conversations.

Only request is to look over the site some before starting new threads on LA. That's often what gets people's ire up, whether the post is pro or against or neutral. Too many threads as is.

I believe in free speech. Too bad the people at RBR don't. They need to update their terms of service, or just delete it altogether. The not-so-cool mod continually violates their own terms of service and then boots people based solely on his bias. He lies about a TOS violation upon reporting the incident, then deletes the user's post, thereby removing any evidence of his wrongdoing. I hope they lose users and advertisers in any way because of him.

I had no idea that there were so many other refugees here from that other site. Hopefully, this forum will be amicable to the truth. It's coming.

No you get a lot of irrational Armstrong haters here so you'll probably be okay.

What's the RBR forum?

Join the club. I got banned from RBR for complaining about Coolhand banning another member. We should start a club.

Coolhand has it in for anyone who does not buy Armstrong's lies. He looks for any pretext to ban those he dislikes.

I think I'll need to register on RBR just to PO this fun loving soul (Coolhand, that is), and then get banned! ;)

Were any of you guys Utah Craghopper on RBR? That guy knew his stuff, but they banned him as well for nothing.

The best way to **** off Coolhand is to present facts in a calm, rational, way. I was on their site for 3-4 years, but he could never figure out a way to ban me because I would not resort to name calling, despite Mohair and Swiftsolo calling me every name in the book and Coolhand launching a trolling Lemond thread weekly.

Finally Coolhand started banning me every few weeks saying that I did a "personal attack". I never did but he would delete a bunch of my posts and then start a thread saying no more personal attacks to make it appear like I did. Digger then questioned this ban in a very calm and rational manner and Coolhand deleted the post and started a thread saying that Digger was banned for life for his crazed outburst.

Finally, right before the Tour this year he banned me for good. No grounds. Guess he did not want any of the newbies to be exposed to the truth.

Never been there, but it doesn't sound like a proper discussion forum if you can't have a balanced discussion!

You sound like a bitter and vengeful person - you'll fit in fine here.

Just been in RBR, obviously only to read the posts, being banned and all that. Basically there are no people posting views which are of the view that Lance isn't a walking saint, or that Lemond isn't a nutcase. Great discussions.:(
 
It's a funny place. Reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode with Bill Mumy, where he has the power to condemn people to oblivion and Cloris Leachman is his mother. Everyone was eventually terrified of him, so tip toed around every last thing he did for fear of being vanquished.
