The New and Improved HotRNot Thread

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 still don't understand how one troll got that thread closed...Seems like it would be better to ban him. He was warned several times...

I apologize for the aside, but I agree with you. I think the mods do a great job on this site,and I know because I am a mod on a major boating site (and used to be one on a motorcycle forum) that moderating can be a major PITA, but I see threads getting closed when it would seem to me that in the best interest of the community the few offenders should be dealt with.

More on topic, my ti bike is supposed to arrive this evening. I am debating putting it up on stage here. If I do it will be after I do a few little enhancements.

Nope. This one is shut down now, as well.

I agree with you 1,000 per cent.

But we have worse cases.

We have a member here who went to foo and posted half naked pictures of himself in the bed with nothing but a sheet and another pic with his pants unzipped or his riding gear open to reveal his chest and even further down while posing by a motorcycle and we should have banned AND blocked him back in the day. I'm sure you would agree, right? The only reason he wasn't banned is because we were much more lenient.
