Wow, I thought this type of kid **** only existed in the Subaru and firearms forums. Did not think older road bikers spoke like this. Just curious, you guys bored? Do you not have jobs and kids/houses? I'm guessing the average age of guy that rides road has dropped significantly since I was last in lol.

What makes you think this list is, or should be, for the exclusive use of exalted "older road bikers" who fit your preferred profile?

You posted your question in the subforum that is called:

"Foo" "Light hearted off-topic chit chat with no general subject."

Which is sorta what you got.

What does 'light hearted' 'off topic' and 'general chit-chat' have to do with silly worthless answers? Lol. Those two are not the same lol. Sorry. But thank you for your answer.

When you make a post to Foo, Anubis, the god of dogs who chase cyclists, weighs your heart. If he finds it is not light as a feather he reports you to the moderation team.

Really cool feature about any forum is that "Log Out" command at the top right of the forum. Further than that, you actually have to make a choice to surf here and participate. If you aren't caring for the current experience, feel free to use those options.

It never ceases to amaze me that some folks come here, a private forum, and expect to make changes to the forum based on their idea of "the way things should be," or expect this little forum to change the world. Either view is wrong. Also the folks that make "free speech" demands, and fail to realize private forums do not have to adhere to their notion of "free speech."

I think BF is one of those forums where one would do well to understand the lay of the land before posting. It's not true of all forums, but some have a certain "flavor" to them and it's often that people who haven't read around enough to know what typical responses are like tend to be disappointed in replies they receive...

If he wanted to find a moderator he could have just took the time to surf and or read how to get contact information. Instead he acted like a ****** and received a ****** bag response. Which he or she thoroughly deserved.

Yup, there are a couple of sub forums here that you could need to be prepared for. IIRC, road has a warning stickied at the top about what to expect in there. PnR and AnS are both worthy of a warning, and Foo is its own little world much of the time.
