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.

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.

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