    Man I miss the old M.T.B.R

    What is this a bad joke? This thread was sent to the recycle bin.http://forums.mtbr.com/recycle-bin/i...es-765212.html

    I miss the old M.T.B.R. where it took a hell of a lot more to get sent there. These days if you so much as talk about anything unrelated to mtbing. It gets **** canned. For those new to this site if you think it's fun now you should have been here before all the politics. I have been a member since 2002' and it was a whole different animal back then. It has just gotten more and more strict as the years go by. It really changed several months back for some reason. Anybody else notice and think we are being monitored a little too harshly these days? It feels like elementary school all over again.

    It's a free public site, what do you expect? You could always go over to the f88 forum where out is mandatory to be mean and rude lol.

    yeah, I bet the mods don't appreciate someone doing so much copy/paste as to flood the boards.

    I personally don't find myself longing for the early 2000's on this board. I've been around since 2000-ish (don't remember the exact year, i know I lurked for quite awhile. I don't even remember my old login name from the last board software change).

    the flame wars were epic and worth some laughs, but it was hard for a n00b like me to get with the "in" crowd. the board is big enough that you can carve out a niche for yourself in a regional board, a tech board, a manufacturer board, or in Passion or something else.

    overall I think the mods let folks goof around for awhile until it becomes obvious that a goof-off thread has run its course. some things get political or start to flirt with the lines of what the mods agree is appropriate. sometimes stuff has just run its course and some hanger-on starts abusing things, like I figure happened in this case with the dude posting 3 pages worth of posts.

    Well for starters you could quit beating yourself up and get some help for your low self esteem.

    I have tried, but looking in the mirror and repeating, I'm good enough, and smart enough, and
    darn it, people like me, just isn't doing it anymore. Oh well, guess it's back to paying
    prostitutes to just sit and hold me.

    I miss the days when a thread could have more than a couple replies and it did not require two pages.

    I miss JC

    Bin-ing the joke thread was poor. The title made it clear, it was just jokes
    Its all Shits and Giggles until somebody Giggles and Shits

    You can't talk about rep. You can't tell jokes. You can't venture into popular world topics. What are we supposed to talk about? Bikes? Where's the fun in that.

    Still too much crap

    Still too much crap as far as I'm concerned. That non-biking related crap crowds out the stuff I come here to see. I occasionally point it out in posts and I get lots of negative reps. As if I care about reps, which are just more crap.

    Yeah, I ruined the thread with three pages of new jokes. What was I thinking? How about it was a certain person who reported me for "spamming" that triggered it to be canned.
    How exactly does posting jokes in a jokes thread count as Spamming? Like I told him, was I supposed to post a couple and wait for the ink to dry? I wasn't aware we had a
    waiting period for the jokes to be told. I was just having fun in the bike unrelated thread and somebody got cranky because nobody replied with "who's there" for a knock knock joke.

    if the goal is page views, then wouldn't a jokes thread suit the mods' goals? some place for people to view and post and to see ads even if they don't like any of the other topics going on at the time.

    This /\ I get tired of the grade school bs. Please ban the next person that posts that stupid freakin narwhal video again. And I don't give two shits about rep so save your energy.

    LOL I missed that one off to the recycle bin I go.

    Actually I started this thread not even having read further than the first page of the jokes thread.

    If it turned to crap and was destined for the recycle bin so be it. I shouldn't have used that thread as my example. My point was for this thread was we are monitored way more closely than before. I agree the mods need to be here and case a thread if it gets offensive to others. But I just think that the lines are drawn just a little too tight. IMO "General Discussion" means just that. Talk anything and everything as long as it is clean and you're not hurting anyone what's the big deal. I know this is a mountain bike site so lets talk bikes. Great talk bikes here in General Discussion or on the numerous other boards, but this forum should also allow "General Discussion" which has no category.
