Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I logged on to the forum this morning and noticed that a s-load of threads had been moved.

So if we call start everything Moved: then maybe they will think they already moved it. ( waiting for the smack on the head)

I'm pretty certain that I have never started a thread that would be considered "on topic" for this particular sub-forum. I propose a filter on the "new thread" function that scans each entry and places new threads in their appropriate forum. That would take away the guess work and clean up this awful mess we have made.

I'm cleaning up the WOW thread; it would be nice to discuss the issues rather then fight about them... give me a few minutes.

Why? Because they make a mistake every once in a while? Most members only see a portion of what a moderator / admin deals with, and the portions you see will almost always upset somebody.

The moderators are doing a fine job. I believe some folks from the ACLU have infiltrated this forum.....

If the stash pocket don't fit, you must aquit! OOOPS! Wait, that has nothing to do with the ACLU or the IBMA which in turn have nothing to do with this forum. I submit that I need redirection substituted in for my lack of direction or what has been alternatively called, misdirection. Does anybody want a peanut?
