    Off topic threads in General Discussion

    Have you noticed how more and more off topic threads are popping up in GD lately? It's as though a second OC is developing over there and most of these off topic threads are being started by unfamiliar faces.

    I think they are jealous of the real OC. They try to copy but can't quite pull it off. Some of those threads have been pretty funny but seem to have a short shelf life. Those folks should hang here for awhile and they'll see that the OC is a nice place to spend some time.

    I say we go over there to super-troll and completely destroy any and all threads that are not related to cycling in GD. This is not OK, simply put.

    Just think of General Discussion as a spinoff of the popular sitcom known as Off Camber.

    They are only funny because some of us from over here are involved.

    You need to get over to GD, Hawg. There's a thread about the LA police implanting anal microchips.

    That is very true! It's been entertaining to see the OC regulars invade some of those theads. They could certainly use a sense of humor.

    Neg-repped the thread starter. There are some things that just shouldn't be said here or anywhere.

    Moderators are slacking...

    they should be fired for such blatant lack of performance.

    I think they are still in a giving mood.

    I took a look. Yep, it is a mess. I strolled through passion for a moment and that isn't thriving either. Life is good in the OC and in fat bike land. Perhaps it is the changing nature biking.

    It looks like the civil rights and pain thread was moved to the ReCycle bin. At least it didn't disappear like most threads of it's ilk.

    I didn't even get my anal joke in before the bin. I'm telling y'all General has been a mess for more than just the past week. They been moving threads out of there and putting them in here ever since that "hipster" thread.
    You're so cute internet tough guy. Noogie...Noogie...Noogie.

    Lol, I had a few queued myself. Most of those moved threads do seem out of place over here.

    The gun thread could keep us busy for awhile. Those guys have NO humor whatsoever.

    It looks like the threads are being moved over to the OC now at a frightening rate.
