why not just post what you know and get banned now?

Hard to see what could be so bad about data usage. It's not like I'm using it.

The owner of this site can easily be found in the legal caveats within the FAQs -- no particular secret there -- and you can go to Wikipedia or other sites if you want to know more about how they make money

When I opened this thread I thought I was going to see something like: Work is the curse of the biking classes!

Yoo hoo.

Well, a long couple of days, coupled with an avalanche of work. Waddya do? I was a little suprised to find that the current privacy statement for bike forums was not as I remembered when I signed up. I emailed Internetbrands, Inc about who owned the copyright to the images posted on here and got the suprising comments that they did. The impression I had on sign-up that Bike Forums was not a commercial enterprise is no longer correct. You post stuff on here, Internetbrands can do what they like with it. Continue over in Foo.

Thanks for massages of support. I enjoy jiving with you guys (and ladies). Even the ones with beards and hub gears. The guys, not the ladies.

What to do?


~~~

Fodling Content: A pair of 20" Conti Sport Contacts arrived 'by mistake' today. Some remarkable error at the supplier had mixed up the 26" mud Conti's I ordered for my dirt bike, for the bonquers Sport Contacts. Bequiled, I whacked them on the bike, stripping off useless clutter like fedners, racks, pie carriers, and Schwalbe Marathons.

My bike is now a CAFÉ RACER!



Eat that, Internetbrands Inc. I would, but the bike is going to shake my bicuspids out.

Is that the breaded ladies with, or without Internal hub gears ?

Do the internal hub gears shave their legs?

Unfortunately a lot of websites do that. Once you post, all content belongs to them. Funnily enough, I can't even find a way to delete your photo, if you wanted to.

Theoretically they can even read what you type in the reply box before you submit it. A simple JavaScript code can send it to the server while you type. I always wondered if some sites actually do it.
