    I really don't know what to make of Don Q. My only strong feeling is that some people should not be allowed to do polls

    he is just a guy hooked on the "poll" feature.
    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right

    I assume he is either a kid, or a well-meaning character who's just a bit "off" when it comes to social interaction. In either case it would be inappropriate to create threads attacking him personally.

    That said, I actually think his latest poll poses an interesting and relevant question...

    It does. Too bad that wasn't his original intent.

    DQ is most certainly not a kid. Likely an older gent. Despite his sometimes agenda driven polls, he's prolly an entertaining guy to hang out after a few beers.

    Somewhere halfway through your second case, I assume?

    Put him on ignore and don't click on his threads if you don't like him.

    Some people get all fired up about him (in a negative way). I don't get it.

    He has a lot to say and passionate about bike/ped issues. He is also riding in the
    most violent bike culture in the whole USA. His eccentricity is his defense mechanism.
    The delivery may not fit the accepted standard format of the boorish attack based opinion
    fitting of a correct A&S post, but there can be no doubt he promotes good stuff

    I hope Im that enthusiastic in 5 years

    He's been helpful to me:
    After 4 years with putting up with anything on this site, this morning DonQ prompted me to look for and learn to use the "ignore user" feature. So he's made me learn a useful skill!

    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    No, but still, I would like peanuts AND a banana.

    Yes, I thought it was against BF guidelines to attack other members.

    You forgot about his last visit? A&S seemed tame and calm after DQ disappeared for half a year afterwards.

    Now we're back to filtering through four or five rows of nonsensical DQ postings to find any topic with the slightest of redeeming qualities. To say that DQ is spamming the forum would be more fitting.
