No, the mods have one of those flashy things from Men In Black and apparently they started testing it on threads last night.

Yeah, part of the server errors yesterday. Sorry.

The SoCal subforum lost a thread discussing an upcoming century ride we're planning. Oh well. (The ride's still on, though.)

Yes, it's all your fault.

It's always your fault from now on, okay?

Yes, so we established. It's my fault. Always my fault. And a big fault that is, that Pacific Ring. I think I'm getting the hang of it.

Good, in fact, excellent.

You're a quick learner, I like that in a scapegoat.

I have a spool, perhaps the missing threads are on it. What color were they?

So you are saying that SoCal lost a thread and in a fit of anger ya'll trashed BF and killed a bunch of threads? That is cool. Did you all dress like Hank Williams Jr. and take an insane amount of pills chased down with Jack Daniels?

Yup, moderators want to hear more topics about cooking and stylish clothing.
