Very true. The "how old are you?" thread recently shocked the bejeezus out of me. A lot of those guys and gals I thought were at least my age turned out to be wee teens.

Hey, we 50+'rs not only have our own forum, we have our own Rogue's Gallery. Any other forum have a Rogue's Gallery?

Yeah, we need a teenagers' forum!

This is blind ageism! I refuse to submit to this hateful discrimination, it's a disgrace.

Pedophile magnet would be a teen cycling forum. Just way too many fetishes get combined at such a place.

YOu want to see a forum full of unruly, disrespectful, idiotic, aoelse crazed, immature kids, go to the misc. forums at bodybuilding.com. It is absolutely ridiculous. Sometimes slightly funny, but 95% of the time, they are flaming anyone who posts, photoshopping pictures of the bullies at their schools or handicapped people, and talking about fighting. And from what they say on the misc. forum, the teen forum is waaaay worse. I've never clicked the teen forum once and couldn't even imagine a more ignorant, immature group that most of the posters in bodybuilding.com misc. section. Of course there are some good people there, but the whole experience is pretty lame as a whole due to the grade 5 mentallity of the majority.
I find bf to be very VERY good compared to most forums.

it sounds like a good idea at first...but if you think about it, whats the point. i cant think off one topic that i cant fit just fine into an existing forum (mainly the foo). Im a teenager but when i ask questions i want input and answers from the adults on this forum....not just the teens.

Yeah, Dizzle Trainizzle.

"n00b" is a term of endearment.

Now if I had called you a "newb" or "nub", then that'd be trouble.
