MOVED: Proposed Guidelines for Moving Threads

OK...I'm a little tired of all the whinging and whining about threads being moved. So, let me propose the following guidelines.

Any thread posted in the single speed forum that does not focus on fixies, messenger bags or pie should be moved to a more appropriate forum.

Any thread posted in the 50+ forum that does not mention menopause, prostates, pattern baldness or arthritis should be moved to a more appropriate forum.

Any thread posted in the females only forum that does not mention menstruation, pregnancy or utereses should be moved to a more appropriate forum.

And any thread that uses AOLese should be moved immediately to the BMX forum.

If you don't think this thread is appropriate for the Foo forum, it can be put somewhere else. Need a suggestion where to put it? Just ask...

Jokes & Humor?

Jokes & Humor?!?

You put this thread in Jokes & Humor??!!??

Now that is just wrong! I was not joking. And even if I was, there was nothing humorous about it.

Since, I mentioned fixies, prostates and menstruation in my original post, I think that this thread properly belongs in the "50+ Females Only Single Speed" Forum.

I told you I could suggest a place to put it...

Wow! Women develop a prostate gland when they turn 50? Who knew??? Do they suddenly start watching a lot of football also? Although to be honest, my sister is a much bigger football fan than I am. For her, football is a religion; for me, it's just something to hold me over between the Tour of Lombardy and Milan - San Remo.

And my new book "Menstruation Past 50" hits bookshelves sometime late this year too!

I am currently working on my follow up book "Female Fixies and their Prostates" will be available only through amazon.com too.
