No, it's only unethical if I do more than like, but actually make love to his post after he tells me to stop. Or instead of unethical you could call it litter if I don't clean the post afterward and leave a mess all over his front yard (because the fence posts in his backyard are straight up hooches and I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole for fear of getting a communicable disease).

Is this going to be another thread in which Doge posts a question, and then after getting a few responses, he answers it, then argues why his answer is the correct one?

Glad that is out of the way. Should riders point out hazards?

Obviously.

In fact I'd argue it is a rider's responsibility to go over potholes rather then swerve around one if he sees it to late in order to avoid crashing their neighbour.

Can we all agree on the depth/height of the variation that would need to be pointed out before we discuss whether we need to point them out? Who will chair this committee?

Easy. What the referees say they are. See Chico SR.

Eh, not necessarily. That's more of the referee electing to enforce/not enforce or fine/not fine. For example, if you get pulled over for speeding (say 70 in a 55) and you don't get a ticket, does that mean that 70 is now good to go?

^^ I hope that is sarcasm.

The only ethic is racing is "don't be too big a dick."

If you are, don't cry foul when someone gets fed up and puts you into a curb.

Agree with that ^ re: ethics.

Unfortunately, it seems the lack of ethics has led to the development of these darn rules. Some are sticklers for them and some try to bend them in their own favor. I generally don't care and the liklihood of one of these mild rule infractions really affecting me is slim to none. I'm not in it to do more than enjoy competing. If I win great. If someone with a crinkled number beats me, they beat me (rules). If someone chops my wheel and beats me as a result, I'd be less than thrilled (ethics). If a Jr beats me on grown up gears, then kudos to them (rules and maybe ethics).
