    Do you enjoy Don Q threads or just survive them?

    Some people like to ride bulls for fun, others like to ride bikes.

    Do you count yourself among the bull and bike riders who enjoy a whimsical read, or among those who wished they could keep themselves far away from the bull?

    It's rather hard to avoid the bull, sorry bulls.

    I'll admit to being amused once in a while, even if the majority of the debate is "noise"

    P.S. you should have made this a poll that only allows one conclusion to be drawn...
    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    You need to add a Poll to this thread.

    I've watched Man of LaMancha play once, so I can see the whimisical characteristics in the poster here known as Don Quixote. So in that light, I think this member is that of a village clown. One can always just ignore his threads.

    Victim my arse. In the mornings, riding to work rather than driving, I'm most definitely the winner

    I enjoy DonQ.

    I also think that threads regarding specific members are against forum guidelines.

    Edit: But whatever. I don't sense any mean spiritedness in this thread (well, so far anyway).

    "There is nothing quite like DonQ. Sacré bleu!"

    This thread was made in fun, and no disrespect to Don Q was ever intended. Actually, I figured if anything he would appreciate the attention. I truly admire the way Don manages to inject some levity and fun into a sometimes much too serious forum like A&S, and always find his topics at least mildly entertaining. The fact that he never seems to get discouraged no matter the response is a testament to his confidence. Now let's all grab a banana and tame some lions!

    Don Quixote reads like John Bunyan without the spiritous overlay.

    allegorical and entertaining. his last poll was quite straightforward, actually.

    Do you count yourself among the bull riders, or among those who wished we could keep the bully far away?

    he's the second guy on my idiot list. Apparently that doesn't hide his threads though.
