    Apex Thread...

    So Mod, I agree with Snowskilz. There is no need to take the Apex thread down unless you have a personal vendetta against mountain biking.

    When your horse rides you up the mountain, does it at least give you a happy ending? I mean really, that's a long haul for an equestrian to go, bareback. I at least hope Mr. Ed bought you dinner first....

    I'm still trying to figure out if horseback riding for pleasure is animal abuse.

    I thought it was adjunkies "i like boobies" comment that got it shut down, which would be ironic considering it's probably the only post in that thread everyone could agree with.

    So true! You can't have a statement like "i like boobies" in the "gheyist thread eva". Oxymoron 101 FFS.

    I asked them to close the thread because it was starting to get poopy. It was poopy to begin with.

    Who wants to go ride bicycles?

    Whoops, I don't like what I said anymore. Can I take it back?

    every apex thread goes down the cr@pper pretty quick thats what happens here and we like it.

    After reading that thread, I now know why John Q Public hates mountain bikers. What an embarassment to all the progress everyone has made by showing up at meetings and lobbying for biking on open space and parks. First closed threads, next the trail, which would probably be a good thing for once.

    I didn't even think this forum had a moderator monitoring it. Why would anyone want to close that thread?

    Ohhhhhhhhh... wait. I think I understand.
    The Moderator was personally offended by the thread.

    Snowskilz,

    The original poster requested me to kill it since it wasn't going anywhere constructive.

    Please know the facts before thinking "I'm riding a high horse" or something. "IF you go to this forum often enough..." Dude I'm in here ALL the time. I know of your apex threads....

    If this is a prerequisite for a thread to continue then they should probably all be killed within 10 posts.

    Eh? I got some problems with that:

    -What defines a constructive thread? Has anyone read the "Any Vegan Cyclists?" thread. Good god, that thread should have been shut down weeks ago, but still is going on and on... And what about the "Colonic Cleansing" thread... it even had pictures of... um... fecal matter... No one closed that (though it did get recycled... appropriately)

    -Who starts a thread with a title like "OK to Clothesline a Downhiller" and expects it to go anywhere constructive?

    -does the OP "own" a thread? Once it's posted, I thought it was fair game for anyone to post and take it where-ever it ends up. The anarchy is part of the fun on an internet forum.

    my 0.2
    If no offensive content is being posted, let anarchy rule. If anyone mentions vegan, close it down

    Thats the worst reason ever to pull a thread. Seriously. Everybody was having fun with it. I highly doubt anyone took it too seriously. I guess the internet is SERIOUS BUSINESS.

    Friggin retarded to pull a thread because the OP asks you to. I could see it if we were all out bashing the OP, but we weren't.

    Everything is good... in moderation

    Be thankful you have a moderator here. I can tell you stories that would make your head spin. Better yet, Google my name (real name) and you'll see what happens when there isn't a moderator.

    The OP starts a thread titled "Is it okay to clothes-line downhillers on Apex?" and then requests it to be locked when he decides it isn't going anywhere productive? LOL. That's classic. I guess he wasn't expecting anyone to be opposed to the idea of closelining other riders. Who woulda thunk.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.
