I thought people have been banned in the past just for mentioning that site.

Not me! I figured it was directed towards the many posters that swear they will leave forever. Some do (so you think) but you don't realize they are back under other names. We just know zactly which ones they are, but they never really totally "quit".

Mods know who is and who isn't there and those that think that we think that they aren't there but they are there.

What, are we Texas now?
We don't really have to toot our own horn do we?
That's usually what the hapless saps in miserable places like Texas & Saharizona do, using cheap chicanery and Chamber-of-Commerce words like dynamism, recreation capital and tourism opportunities to lure visitors to their sucky states.
There's a very good reason why Southern California doesn't need a tourism bureau, (Googles... haha, but it turns out that one does exist. I hang my head in shame.) Especially here in San Diego County every summer when we're eye-deep in motorhomes with Arizona plates and NASCAR flags, and the convenience stores have to triple their stocks of tobacco products.

Even if we do have an (entirely unnecessary) Tourism Bureau, we still rule hard enough that people in other states hate us for simply being fortunate enough to live here. So why gloat?

It's always weird to me that people would go to the trouble of creating sock puppets, get banned, come back under different IP addressed from different ISPs and different machines, argue with their own alter-ego, etc.

To me it's just a bike forum. It's kind of fun, I learn a lot, meet a few nice people and a few asshats (just like life) and I move on from there.
