    Awesome Quotes

    Love it! Here's one I like.

    When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

    Welcome to the club. I like this one.

    Until mountain biking came along, the bike scene was ruled by a small elite cadre of people who seemed allergic to enthusiasm. ~Jacquie Phelan

    Nice thread OP. Don't be alarmed when this thread takes a turn to the strange now that the mods moved it over here from General.

    Now I have no idea why this thread got moved. It's a perfect general discussion thread.

    What's going on?

    The OP follows the guidelines and introduces themselves in General with one of the best intros one can come up with. Clearly a great intro and topic , especially this time of year.

    In return they get tossed into OC with all the disgruntled?

    This was an excellent intro, as well as, post in General. A 15 page train wreck about CCW doesn't get moved off topic, yet this does?

    Way to go mods. Now someone that appeared to be genuine about joining the mtbr community is going to be ran off by a very small percentage of disgruntled A$$ hats in OC. Keep up the good work.

    Don't worry we'll be gentle. So far the OP seems like a good egg so stick around, he/she might like it. The only ones to get trashed around here are the trolls.

    The gun thread is about bikes so it's a no go here.

    If the off topic isn't suppost to be about bikes. Why is there close to a 100 page thread about bikes that stays at the top? Vol. 4 no less....

    Hawg's All About Bikes Thread, Vol. 4

    Was simply asking why some topics get moved or closed. Yet other remain to carry on into a long over do train wreck for 20 pages or more.

    There was no reason to move this thread. It was fine where it was.

    No, you were not "simply asking why". You went out of your way to refer to some members as "asshats". To make this discussion a bit more pointed, why don't you make it simple and name names?

    That has been the only "Bike" related thread allowed by our lord... Don't question it.
    All others will receive a swift and quick punishment.


    And you wern't 'simply asking' you were being a whinny b!tch.

    The OC bylaws state that any bike related material is to be placed specifically in the latest volume of Hawg's All About Bikes Thread.

    Mods have sole discretion over thread fate but they routinely close threads that turn into trainwrecks or get too political, religious or personal. Why some threads stay for so long is anybody's guess. You'll have to ask the mods.

    Because some of the "asshats" in the OC started complaining that threads that were in General belonged in the OC and wondered why they weren't being moved. All I can add is to be careful what you wish for.
