I don't have a sock puppet.

Unfortunately, I have to read posts by from the troll when others quote them. Hopefully ignoring them will become more of a trend for everyone. I can assure you that he has no desire to constructively discuss anything. He merely wants to disrupt and get attention. Hopefully, this thread will be a sink hole that pulls them in and will frustrate them to the point that they quit.

Really?

Well, you cant see this anyway, but goodby for today, I'm off to work.

I thought about that at the beginning, but the mess has been too big lately. He has destroyed the flow of several threads already.

Yep, I agree and see your's and Cobber's points. There are a number of threads which have been unfortunately ruined. I think the discussion on Lance's blood work (especially the graph - good detective work) and the logistics threads could have been really informative and worthwhile, but they have since degenerated into a troll-fest with the good posts being totally diluted out by misinformation, unsupported rubbish and failure to answer direct questions.

thats a very good point there.
i am ambivilent, in that i find him entertaining, but yes it does kill good threads- but only if people feed the sock!
i am also disappointed in what he said to Betsy in that thread. i though a lot there was personal and out of line.
personally i dont mind the bloke. if he was in my city i'd have him over for dinner and call him a w anker for sure.
i can't see the motivation to post here tho.
anyway, here's a picture of his alter egos. if we're 3 down it means 2 to go.

(the ignoring must be killing him- THAT i find worth it all. i've no doubt we'll all start receiving PM's soon asking whats going on, i'm a nice guy, some of my best friends hate Lance, etc)


where's blackcat been lately too

this thread is golden

oh, and having seen The 6th Sense, and Fight Club, can I say i am ready for the punchline that TFF and BPC are one and the same too. there has to be a twist coming.......has to.(we know its not lance, the posts are more than 140 characters long)

So I went to LiveArmstrong to see if there was any comment on the latest controversy. It turns out you can see the twitter posts there, and this picture was the lastest...

"Training for my next photoshoot with the Trek/Livestrong team. Can't be the shortest one again..."

Interestingly, the update before that says this: "How do I say "ssdd" in Danish?"

Uh huh? :confused:

What kind of weird hijack is that? This thread is about you, enjoy the moment and let Lance dangle. And get some sleep, it's nearly time to wake up where you say you live.
