I hate it when certain mods go on a power trip and start deleting posts.

I guess. My question was answered. So that's good. I probably missed some good debate, yet again. Oh well, it's not my board I'm just glad it' s here.

On the forums I moderate we lock all the topics, and then at the end of the year we go through and delete all the old, as in years old or insignificant ones.

That wouldn't necessarily work very well here.

The Classic & Vintage forum has some threads which have turned into treasure troves of facts concerning some lesser known brands and builders.

Don't mess with those!

I think the post is simply a lament. Perhaps a call for a return to the good old days...?

Better watch it, LowCel. I'm an honorary TGMBG member now; might be wearing my 'bike-chain knuckles' and engineer boots (do any barbers do mullets anymore?)

That's okay, if it gets too scary I'll just jump on my bike and ride uphill to get away from you.

You forgot I race XC too didn't you? However, I think chasing you down would all be akin to my cat stalking wild turkeys: catching one just sets you up for a wuppin'
