We should recruit

I see some promise in the MTB forums. Their threads stay on topic almost as much as ours. And I see some real genius in there.

Most of them like to stick to their own, only a few of us venture out

I'm trying to venture out to MTB (I used to just use MTBR) but I find that I can hardly keep up with Foo and the MTB forum. Perhaps I should quit my job and just be on here all day.

My contract is up in ten months anyway, I'm just getting a head start on quitting. It'll be like Office Space, I'll just stop working and see how long it takes them to notice.

It's actually a Dulles, VA address so you can't stalk me. But that's okay, I'll stalk you when I get back.

Well now, if every Fooster added a new forum to the repetoire, we could take over.

You can see my name pop up almost everywhere. I can't say that I've ever been in the Nutrition forum, though.

Oh, and sometimes I even tell the brand new people in Introductions that they should come here. So I'm doing my bit to recruit.

Lurk on FatA**'s economics threads. I don't agree with him about a lot of social issues, but I've learned a great deal from Fatty about our economic system. He explains things in plain English. That kind of knowledge is a good thing.

He was talking about the housing market and was really pessimistic. I am not disagreeing, just saying he's not saying what everyone else is.

What you say? My Foolish Quakery would be understood there? Yes indeedy I rides my mtb year round and love it, and my roadbike one the days I'm able to get out to the sticks and go for the long lonely roads ...

So, I'd be accepted?

S'ok - I'll make do then with my other forums and e-mail dist. groups as I'm working on getting an nice Jekyll and also installing a new fork on the lil rockhopper I have now.

I delve into the serious forums on several forum sites - but I go here for the outer limit stuffs.
