Don't venture onto mtbr for a few days.

If you don't want to get a computer virus.

http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...BR.com-Warning!

This does hold water, went on the other night and got a warning screen from one of my antivirus programs that there was malware detected on the site.

All the more reason. As if a forum populated by snot-nosed 13-year-olds wasn't enough.

I deleted that site from every list I have, and will never go back. Quite a while ago, in fact.

And there aren't any snot-nosed little trolls here? I've run into many during my few-month tenure here...

It's now fixed, per Gregg the forum administrator.

I never saw a warning either, but then again I'm on a Mac.

Did I say there was not????? No I did not. I just stated that there are some on that site. Sure, everyone on a forum has balls the size of coconuts but in real life nothing to back it but slinging snot and raving how good they are and how they are almost a pro rider and their bike is much better than your's and so on. I tune those ass clowns out and move on. This site has a few and when I was a member here the first time years ago I encountered several ass clowns. But like I said, they have balls sitting behind a laptop screen don't they!

you obviously don't think you're good enough. you must be underestimating yourself. when you have convinced yourself that you have the biggest balls on the trail, you will become one with the zen that is this forum. then you will post about your epic slaughter of every man, woman, child, small animal, large animal, and noobzilla that dared to get in your way, then you'll say something awesome like "brb, have to get some more flesh out of my spokes" and at that point everyone will know that you have the biggest balls on bikeforums. until then, keep taking the high road.

brb, i have to go oil my coconuts.

p.s. i typed this on a desktop.

p.p.s. MTBR didn't throw any warnings for me, either. i just checked.

BN, I think you're taking yourself too seriously. The snot-nosed kids make this place interesting. I come here for information, but I also come for entertainment, and they definitely provide.
