    POSEUR - the meaning?

    Recently, I joined bikeforums.net. I use it for information and enjoy getting to know the cycling community... or at least I think I'm enjoying it.

    I had never seen the word POSEUR(S) before coming here. Please define it.

    I said think because my few posts have been met with mildly-hostile replies. It could be just a coincidence, just got off on the wrong foot with a couple members, but I wonder... are there a lot of POSEURS here?

    Look forward to your replies.

    wait, you have a link to a product called 'messengermirror' yet you don't know what poseur is?
    isn't it the same group segment?

    might be referred to has hipsters or tarkc idiots.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Thanks, I think.

    OK, so I'm one. It appears I'm not alone.

    Maybe big forums are largely about http://lmgtfy.com/?q=banter.

    it's decent when the BF search is broken or won't let you search for words or numbers under 3 characters.

    Look forward to your replies.
    If you put more emphasis on your question, using ALLCAPS with bold and colored font, people might be more willing to step forward and declare their poseurhood.

    Pretty much just you at the moment I think...but let us know if you spot any, Doc.

    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    try asking the same question in SS/FG or road subforums. now that will give you some really witty replies.
