I'll step forward as the guy who posted on twitter to Road Bike Review and #procycling with quotes and screen prints of the two very strong anti-Landis quotes. I stopped reading my @replies, so don't know if there were retweets or feedback, but those two posts sounded like Columbine talk to me, so I put it out there for non-forum members of the cycling community to consider.

I found out I had joined that forum two years ago, so I went to read the first post, saw a follow-up, and someone defending the first post, so posted my intentions there. Stating publicly that you hope to see someone dead is a serious thing these days.

Dammnit - the thread appears to be gone.



Not enough love at V-Salon??

The Vuelta is the most important of the 3 GT's. Bar none.

Actually it was my idea. Spend some time in the Politics Only forum. With a dedicated Doping Forum mod to match what we have had for PO, we would be able to evolve the rules to allow the more aggressive PO style posting. Obviously there would have a spot of the curve where someone was well over the line.

But if you look to PO, a certain "code" or specialized language has developed. Hopefully, a similar situation will develop. Of course, this is just a proposal or just in the concept stages. There is downsides shown to the PO model (poster burn out, groundhog day style posting patterns, and when things get out of hand then tend to really combust pretty spectacularly). The basic rules would apply, keep the doping stuff in the appropriate forum, no over the top personal attacks, no crazy profanity.

Seeing someone was curious enough to start a thread, I hope I did not step on CN's toes by answering. I am curious to get your thoughts on the concept. And yes, I am the son of satan put on this earth to oppress the righteous- sorry about that, genetics win out I guess. If possible, I would like stick to the topic.

Feel free to PM me here on other stuff. I will try to read it all.

Cheers-

:)

Could you simplify your post for us stupid people here? I am sure there is something important you are trying to say but I just do not understand it.
 
The funny thing about RBR is that you can pick an old thread at random from the doping forum and nearly all the posters with anything interesting to say in the thread are marked as banned. Since the banned posters also provided most of the value to the pro racing forum, that forum is now worthless as well. Toolhand completely destroyed both forums.

Now it looks like they are making a pathetic attempt to rebuild what he ruined.

EDIT: LOL!!1! They already deleted the thread. That breath of fresh air certainly was a short one.

It will not get any better. Anyone with anything to add has been banned. When a mod with an agenda bans 20-30 posters with thousands of posts apiece it drives away not just those posters but anyone else that is able to think. All you are left with are clueless syncopates

Wow....

Sorry, going in another direction actually.


A vanishing post, leaving no trail of what was being discussed. How odd, yet somehow familiar. :rolleyes:

"Another direction"? Perhaps, "pursuing other options," or "spending more time with his family."?

Actually, being folded into something bigger. But I may have jumped the gun. Sorry for getting you all excited. My fault. Also a bit weird talking about RBR on CN's Doping forum. Actually the whole thread is a bit strange given the stated purpose of the forum.

/now back to your regularly scheduled programing. . .
