2006 Official Bike Forums 'FOO' Awards

Ok some of you more senior Foo people should (hopefully) take charge of this thread and organise the award nominees and specify the award categories.

These are the prestigious 'FOO' awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (applies to posts and threads right across BF)


Anyone care to throw their hat in the ring and review the year that was 2006 on BF. State the award and name your nominees....

(eg. most annoying thread, most inspiring thread, most useless thread/post, most helpful thread/poster, FUNNIEST post of 2006, Most 'norty corner time' poster, Most incomprehensible post, Best one line post of the year....)

Apologies for not doing a very good job of explaining. I have re-named the category and put in the portions that I had in mind.

KT, not fair busting on Pheard like that. That's so not nice. Why, if Mr. Rogers were still alive, I'm sure he'd write you an unfriendly letter. I have half a notion to report you to the civility police. So there!!!

How's that?
