The not discussing mod actions rule. Posting explanations is discussing mod actions. This is against the rules. We will still do it at times because there are occasions where we think that it is helpful to the smooth running of the forum, but it's not meant to happen.
I must admit, I might have missed that in the rather huge post about rules... Would it be possible to make another/updated post where the important ones are highlighted, or would that be discussing mod action?
But, anyway... yeah; I made a mistake.
I saw the men's thread, thought it was a perfectly innocent and harmless thread, and thought it would be interesting to create a similar thread about the women.
When I noticed that I couldn't find the threads, I thought my eyes were deceiving me. I thought that either they would have been moved into the Café, since I guess you could argue they were strictly speaking not about Road Racing
, but rather about Road Racers
(and some people might find "non-roadies" attractive). Or, if the threads really
couldn't have continued, simply been locked, and allowed to fade away.
When it became clear that they had
indeed been completely obliterated, I just really wanted to know why
. Especially when KB - at first - said that he didn't know why either.
I felt like the "Totally unacceptable, not what we stand for!" explanation - that, btw, only got posted because someone posted (parts of) a Twitter conversation - was purely because of the word "Sexiest" in the titles, and that whoever made the decision to delete the threads hadn't actually bothered to look at the actual content
of the threads, which - for a large part - were just as much riders we find cute or handsome or whatever. Again; I thought discussions like that were totally fine, as people frequently make comments like that elsewhere.
