OK "smart guy" if you have read many of the threads posted since this forum first started up, you would find many, including myself, sticking up for BigBoat.

You know, everything isnt about you...
This has nothing to do with me.

If you actually were able to read and comprehend, you would have understood that I was 'breaking new ground' for myself in defending BB in this instance. Again, if you had devoted just a fraction of your mind to looking at those two topics before spamming the board like some drama queen, you would have realized that your reaction was uncalled for and unnecessary. Neither topic was started today, or by the same poster. So your eight links to this topic were entirely superfluous and a stupid waste of bandwidth.

on second thought...

Amsterhammer I'm going to drop it.

I wasnt targeting you. I dont have anything against you.

I dont like duplicate threads, and I saw a chance to make a point. I used two current threads to make that point, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the merits of either.

I have edited my previous comments to remove those primarily of snark, for when one relies upon snark, they have already conceded the real point.

Let us talk about cycling.
 
Could we possibly get a sticky on this thread, so it will always be in peoples eyeline before they post a new thread. So therefor they might actually as the title says "Think Before You Start A Thread

One of my daily activities (which we could collectivize, as good commies amongst one another) is to bump it 2-3 times a day when I have the time...

PS> It could als become a thread were we post random gibberish, which generally does not really match other threads' themes.

I'm in because today was terrible in terms of multiple threads.

Too late. Check post number 31. :p
Damnit, that is what I get for not reading through the thread before posting. Almost as bad as not 'thinking before you start a thread'.

We think alike. That is scary. You have my condolences.

Ladies and gentlemen, doping Elvis has left the building!

We now have a place where we can talk about doping 24/7.

Good choice Greg. I am glad we can split things up now.
Groan, you don't need to be talking about doping 24/7. Just have one thread for doping. Thats all you need given that you only repeat the same old mantra in every post. You could just call it Area 56 and everytime you feel the urge to talk doping you could just put 'refer Area 56 thread'. Then those that feel inclined can go there and read the doping dirge. That way people who want to talk about racing won't have to put up with doping nutters draggging it into the conversation all the time.

No one should jump into a forum and post something until they have at least scanned the thread titles. Preferably they should--GASP!--read through a few of the threads that look like they might pertain to the subject they are thinking of making a new post about.

Maybe new members should not be able to post for a few days after joining...

Again this person feels they have a sufficient enough intelligence to address me directly? Some fanboys just do not know their place I guess?
