Should Hot or Not have been closed? OR, the thread to discuss why?

Notices
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

I vote:

Hot or Not should "NOT" have been closed.

Nor, should have the thread to discuss why or how.

Please don't hurt my feelings. :-)

Read the last two posts in the thread.

Guys learn to act right then maybe it will get reopened. Maybe!

I'm going to add one more thought here. We closed that thread for a reason, which has been stated at the end of the thread.

Perhaps a reminder of the forum guidelines that everyone agreed to when they joined is warranted.


Harrassment
Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, and denigrates another member at any time. We have zero tolerance for taking an argument about a any topic to a personal level. For instance, the use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. The idea is to make this a pleasant environment to discuss cycling, not a schoolyard, or name-calling and rock-throwing festival. Repeated critical and sharply negative posts toward a forum member can also constitute harassment. This applies to all content submitted by users including posts, avatars and signatures.

Personal attacks and inflammatory behavior will not be tolerated.

Respect the forum staff. We're not here to make life harder to anyone. Any decision taken by the administrators and moderators is final and must be respected.


The weather is good. It's a nice time to ride your bike.
