4.) GoogleMerckx index said:The logic here is pretty simple:
1) at least a few people posting in the Clinic are not clean because:
a) every organization in the world today has cheaters, individuals who make use of an unfair advantage; the Clinic is no exception
b) some posters on the Clinic have been banned in the past; yet when they return from a ban, the quality of their posts is about the same as it was before they were banned. This proves that whatever they were doing before they got banned they are continuing to do.
c) Some posters here demonstrate an unusually fast learning curve. When they join the forum they are completely ignorant about some subject, but after a little while they become quite familiar with it. This isn’t possible if you’re clean.
2) Given that at least a few people on the Clinic are not clean it follows that most are not clean, because:
a) if only a few were not clean, the great majority would not be able to keep up with them on the forum, yet most are able to do this.
b) everyone posting on this forum has at some time in the past interacted in some manner with someone else posting on this forum. This means that many of these individuals have an association with someone who is not clean. This is prima facie evidence of their not being clean themselves.
3) If most posters on the Clinic are not clean, then no one is clean, because:
a) Though a few people in the Clinic get banned, most do not. This means that mods must be corrupt, allowing people who are not clean to post. If the mods are corrupt, then everyone posting here is suspect.
b) if there is anyone posting here who is clean, he/she would stand out in an obvious manner from the great majority who are not clean. While a few posters here may indeed stand out in this manner, this is more likely because they want to appear clean, rather than their actually being clean.
c) Since everyone interacts with someone else, and almost no one is clean, it follows that anyone a poster associates with is with high probability not clean. Following this logic, it becomes clear that no one can spend much time here and remain clean.

Must say that some people's sudden rise in posts per day in the clinic since the vuelta started is suspicious
He may be embarassing his fellow "countryman" when it comes to road cycling knowledge but how many gold medals has he won for his track cycling knowledge?Tank Engine said:Of the two top posters in the Vuelta, one has been posting for years but last year couldn't pick a winner to save his life. The other is a seemingly new poster who was been embarassing a fellow "countryman" with his encyclopedic knowledge of cycling. Suspicious, n'est ce pas?
Wow, another HJ-post about cobblestoned.Hugh Januss said:I would say that Cobblestoned is clean because of the way that he clearly seems to struggle to keep up.
