Are you sad?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Are you sad?

Are you sad?

Are you sad when the post you start moves to page two of BF?

Are you glad?

When your post has more than 1 page of replies?
(this could deserve its own posting, but I declined in the interest of noise reduction)

This thread has been on page one for years, and I don't even go there very often anymore. I also haven't found a thread longer than it on any forum.

Almost 6 years, 14,600 pages, and roughly 219,000 posts.

Impressive.

It's like Rice Rocket heaven. I did it because I had a daily driver Lancer that I modded up to do some Solo II autocross racing. Ah, to be young and foolish again. Now I'm just foolish.

As a mod on the other forum, I used to enjoy locking annoying threads. It's worse than trashing them because they die a slow death as they sink to page 2, 3, 4, etc. while nobody can bump to save it.
