Is this place an Armstrong fan forum?

Nope, I just let him know that he could ban me and I would still be back. Even IP bans can be overcome. I am not going back for a bit because it isn't worth the time and energy, but at some point I will post there again.

I will say that being banned for what I wrote as TFF was not warranted. I really didn't say anything too confrontational. As for Joseph G., I am surprised that I lasted a full 24 with what I was writing there.

Just had a quick look round that other place. I'm developing a new theory after reading coolhand's rant after banning you and me and whoever else he thought was you. That is that coolhand was jackhammer, read this:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry about the troll infestation- its been cleaned up; someone decided to play with sock puppets (next time both handles get banned) and a banned troll tried again (and failed again). Sorry if your posts got caught in the clean up, feel free to repost your thoughts if they did.
He has clearly not got the belfrey lit up. I can't believe he deleted all of Jack Meihoff's clever exchange with d!ckhopper over there.
 
This is great work guys!!!

Coolhand again!!!

Moderators note.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Troll has been banned and his posts deleted. Alas there are now huge holes in it, and a few spots still have him quoted. He was a real peach, that one was. In any event, time to lock this one up. However, if you would like to start a new thread on this topic, please feel free to.

Thanks to everyone for the bad posts alerts.

OK, I have been IP banned there. Well then, I take that as a challenge.

Is that quote as written? If so, it's not Jackhammer. Too articulate and there is also punctuation and capital letters. :D

Just realized something... everyone is going to the RBR forums to start crap. From what I understand people like that are also called trolls... something many of us here hate too. Hhmmm... pot calling the kettle black here?

Just an observation. ;)

BTW, yes I'm on RBR but I post 99% of the time in my local area forum for rides and stuff.

And honestly, you have the freedom of choice. If you hate it there, stay away and it may just go away on it's own. Although i have some good friends there as well.

Just like the allied forces joined to combat the Axis of evil in WWII, we have combined forces to combat the evil that is known as 'coolhand' in RBR. (oh yes, i went there, i compared coolhand to hitler) Despite the hypocrisy you pointed out, RBR staff need to be aware of a public forum turning into a dictatorship just because views differ...and since that failed time to have a little fun.

I agree.

As much as I dislike Coolhand every time he bans a Troll he uses it to justify his other actions that are completely biased.

The best thing to do is ignore him. He has kicked out 10-20 of the best contributers. Posters who stimulated debate in a thoughtful manner and drew others to the forum. It is easy to see that the number of posts in the Pro Cycling and Doping forums have dropped considerably and the content of the few that are there is weak at best. He made it clear that if you knew anything about the sport the RBR was not the place to go.

Unfortunately the RBR staff drink from the same vat of coolaide that Coolhand drinks from.

The best way to do it is Jeff Vader style. Post on and on about how Lemond is a drunk, Lance is God, and the French suck.

Goodbye RBR

Man, Swiftsolo took the cake. Coolhand was like some banana republic generalissimo but Swiftsolo (Listen, Mate...) with his third grade spelling and grammar errors ruled. Although his Classic Posts are too numerous to mention individually he really shined with his post (can't recall the topic) about teenage girls "at the mall dressed like ****ty death rock *****s" or something to that effect - although he spelled it "hoares" or "whoars". It was like the ranting of some serial killer in a stained and weathered yellow legal notepad that CSI types would find in his dingy studio apartment. I took him to task a few times but always got his "only losers attack winners" and his diatribe against "The Media". Honestly, *that* guy was off the rails. This place looks to be inhabited by the vaguely rational! Nice to see some RBR exiles...

I forgot how nuts that guy was.

I might be wrong but I think after one of Siftsolo's genius rants somebody found a picture of his bike that he had posted in another part of the forum. It was maybe 50cm if not 48. That opened the door for someone to post it and ask him if he was a midget. Needless to say he did not take it too well, especially when people started jumping in. Gotta find that thread.

Executioner, despite my best efforts I remain at large on RBR - let me know who you want me to PM and I will


Thanks bianchigirl! It's good to seem some recognizable names in here. It would be really nice to see some of the usual hombres in here like lookrider, FondriestFan, Dwayne, all of them really. We got to get them off that forum. All of them. That place has gone to hell recently. I could care less about them and wish them nothing but the absolute worst. Loser users. lose advertisers.

Welcome.

Did Coolhand get you too? I wish I knew what was going on at RBR. Does Francois know what is going on and does he approve?

Francois is an Armstrong groupie. He does not care that Coolhand has driven so many away from the board. Besides I do not think he has much to do with the site anymore.

I always wondered what type of response I would have gotten from Francois if I would have PMed him instead of attempting to use the "Contact Us" forms on RBR and the parent company's websites.

I also suspected that Thien (sp?), hired from The Paceline, might have something to do with all the bans.
 
I was IP banned for life because they thought I was a ThoughtForFood sockpuppet. So they could ban my IP but they couldn't tell it was not TFF's IP. Then when I signed up on my home computer which is a totally different IP than my store computers the a$$hole banned me again after another couple posts saying "banned means banned".At that point I would have been happy to kick his wimpy little a$$ all over the internet, but I tried to settle for sending a bunch of emails identifing myself as a store owner and potential advertiser and asking for any proof that my IP had ever had more than 1 username. I got zero response.
I don't think they care about anything other than having their faces as far up LA's backside as biomechanically possible. I am not done with them yet however, just planning my next move.
 
I used to check RBR occasionally to keep abreast of what was going on there, but it is no longer worth the time. Posting volume has decreased a lot, and the lack of real differences in opinion has made the site useless. The same thing is true of DPF.
 
icebreaker said:
Agreed.

One more thing on Coolhand - he is no longer just a moderator. He is now a full fledged Admin.

LOL. That site is doomed. What happened to Thien? Did Retirement Shack need an admin?

And from DPF, does anyone know what happened to ChrisH? That dude has to be posting his Armstrong fantasies somewhere. Same goes for Hombre.

This thread should be moved to the "general" forum and have its title changed to "Foreign Forum Follies."

Has anyone noticed the RS advert at the top of the page when in the main forum page.

It goes something like this:
"The Shack and lance power the universe"
