    RC, with all due respect, I think your sarcasm detector may be overdue for servicing. Come on man, it was a joke.

    I believe the subforum you are looking for is the BikeForums "Trollheim" section. From their description: "Anything goes, within reason. This forum has minimal moderation. Enter at your own risk, and abandon all hope, ye who enter here. First, type in the password on the password prompt to gain entry and acknowledge that you have a thick skin..." "We will not tolerate criminal activity in here, however, and will cooperate with law enforcement. We do reserve the right to close and delete threads as needed, and any spillout of Trollheim Conflicts into other forums will result in sanctions and loss of Trollheim Access forever. Attacks on our staff will result in the same. Trollheim requires you be 18 years of age."

    Also: "Terms of use for the this forum:

    1: No personal attacks.
    2: What is said in this forum stays in this forum.
    3: Even if you disagree with another user, please be respectful of others views.
    4. In this forum your opinions may be challenged. If you cannot handle this, please do not enter."

    You can even cuss in there, although you have to know how to defeat the censor .

    with all due respect i'd submit that my opinion (anyone's, for that matter) has just as much right to be added to an open, unlocked thread as did the 200+ opinions that preceded it.

    the mods and others suggested a cessation on the petulant whining about recent MTBR admin and mods' decisions/actions. again with all due respect i'll point out that unlike a many others i wasn't pissing and moaning about what the mods had done and are doing.

    in fact, contrary to whining about it i stated clearly that i supported their decision to step in because they had no option. the OC left them no option. supporting it doesn't mean i like the repercussions, only that i support it. they pretty much allowed us the latitude to run wild in here and it was spilling out into the rest of the forum. they had no option but to step in.

    think about it guys... chum's an easy going dude so for him to feel the need to intervene things were getting kinda wild.

    iow: censorship > personal accountability

    sadly, deep down i fear that in the end i agree with your last sentence -- especially after all the ruckus simple redirection has caused. especially after the ruckus rep revision caused, with some people equating the removal of green dots to being forcibly sodomized. and most sadly especially after the uproar that suggesting a sub-forum of topic freedom hallmarked by personal accountability and responsible self-governing.

    freedom is scary for it requires personal accountability and restraint. much easier to just let someone else do the thinkin' for ya and walk between the painted lines... eh comrade?

    You mention personal responsibility, lol, does the concept of do as I say but not as I do mean the same to you?
    Think the best thing about mtbr, and especially oc, is the comradery, which I have yet to see you partake in. Even if Dell's not always a perfect respectable member, at least he's light hearted and fun, what do you offer?
    I submit that Osokolo's post was spot on, and I have suggested a few times to you that you should at least consider using your brains for good instead of evil.
    You say that you can be trusted in a forum with no holds barred, yet you're choosing to speaking to other members in your normal and expected nasty tone in a, and as a response. You should consider the fact that others aren't as stupid as you think, and you need to step up your game if you don't want people to get your number, because it seams clear that more and more have.
    Round and round we go

    oops... you forgot something. fify.

    easy to spin something by quote mining and snipping sentences.

    i'm not sure how "i support their decision" equates in your mind to "petulant whining about recent MTBR admin and mods' decisions/actions" but i can't wait to hear you try to reconcile it.

    hmmmm.... let's see....

    OC runs wild with little to no mod intervention ---------> natives are happy.

    "OCing" spills into rest of the forum ---------> mods are unhappy.

    mods intervene -----------> natives soil themselves.

    i suggest an alternative compromise that restores the "wild" OC (placates the natives) and keeps "OCing" out of the rest of the forum (placates the mods).

    yet your position is that this "win-win" suggestion was merely passive/aggressive trolling and seeking to advance my own unpopular agenda?

    WTF?!?!?!?!?

    This thread was successfully going the way of the OC until mono had to step in. I mostly lurk as can be seen by my low post count, but it would probably be advisable to not stir the pot any more and leave it be as the mods have suggested. Ill leave you all with this to lighten the mood....

    There will never be another PoSER/f88 here on mtbr...

    However, the f88me site is still up. It does need new members (currently it is failing).

    If some of y'all are so disenfranchised with how MTBR conducts itself I am sure f88me would welcome you in. In there is very light moderation...only real rules are 1) no personal info and 2) no porn.

    here is the address:
    Mountain Bike Forum - f88me at indymtb

    Some of y'all may have a good time for a spell...and discover a place where you can be as rowdy as you like when the mood strikes.....

    it's better than getting the ban hammer here right?

    Hey Chum, there are certain places in this thread, and I'm sure you've seen them, that the poster would warrant a neg. That is why, if we continue to have the ability to rep in any fashion, negs must stay. And I'm sure that there are those among us that would also like to gang up on some of them and neg away.

    I just noticed that even when the Mods turn off their rep glow-stick, the rep power still shows.

    Looks like people can still give you positive or negative rep and the change would be indicated in your Rep Power count. I doubt this will appease those who truly want to opt-out of the rep system.

    thank you for illustrating my point.

    independently throwing a neg at someone for being wrong/stoopid/etc...is OK

    acting as a group for the sole purpose of 'ganging' up on someone is no longer an independent action...it is not OK

    do you get it now?

    This gang negative repping you keep on talking about, has as far as I'm concerned never happened.
    The closest it's been to that to my knowledge, is when MountainCycleShawn found himself in an unfortunate situation. There was some joking about doing so, but to my knowledge it never happened.

    I hate to say this, but occasionally, a point has to be made. I haven't ever been a part of a gang style negging, but you know as well as anyone that sometimes banning someone isn't going to cut it. They need to go out in style, or a blaze of glory. Two fingers flying at the world. At those times, a gang neg would be necessary.

    so....now you Moderate here on MTBR? Was this a type of self-appointment that you dole out the harshies to other members?

    And if you did not have enough juice to punish hard enough you would enlist the help of others...deputize so to speak?

    Is that what you are trying to say - that you are now a Mod on MTBR?

    Is it time for narwhals and unicorns yet? I don't want to get taco'd, but honestly, it seems like we have covered just about everything at this point in the thread.
