Lets ban Botto again

thre are way too many threads of discontent running now. If we justban Botto, we can all rally around one common thread, and get another 20-30 page thread going.

Wouldn't that be alot simpler?

Maybe one of us should go suicide-by-moderator. Anyone looking to have some extra time on their hands for the next week or so?

You can't ban botto, he's my attorney. Besides, if you do ban him, I will boycott BF, you'll all get bored, and you'd all have to actually ride your bikes.

We can't have that.

Hmmmm, (rubbing chin, considering classic1 as next object of fixation.) nah, even if you are an aussie, you're no botto.
So you are going to stalk yourself then?

PCad and GStein would be more worthy of said ban.
I can never get the wasted minutes of my life back from all their incessant banter.
I'll take Botto's passive-aggressive one liners anyday.
