    What's With All The Hatin' Goin On In The General Forum?

    Why are there all these threads popping up labeling people as a "poser", or a "newbie", or a "DBag",... in the General Forum? Lots of hate and venting going on over there lately.

    It's called trolling. Some people get their kicks by creating controversy, then sitting back and watching everyone fight.

    my guess, some parts of the country are finally good to ride after spring thaw, and they're crowded. crowded trails make people cranky.

    It's a bunch of short bus riding window lickers that don't spend enough time on the trails and too much time on the interwebz.

    It's so ridiculous. With all the complaints abut roadie attitudes, look what group of riders is doing the same!

    I had a good ride today. It was short, but it's nice out today. We're in a cooler spell, and so sweat buildup was minimal. I rode my commuter bike with fenders to the coffee shop for a scenery change while I worked on some edits for my thesis. I -gasp- wore street clothes and I actually got some good work done today.

    Dude?! I don't know what to think or how to react to that one! This may be the single most unusual reply I have ever seen on this forum!

    Off Camber is like the fusion of the Beer forum, Passion and the Bin.

    If it wasn't of the nice weather out there, I would hang out all day long here

    I see this sticker on a kiosk at a local trail head that says "Stay calm, ride on".

    Resist the temptation and ride on.

    Good question? I don't get it either. It's very annoying too. It's been raining again all day here so I thought long and hard about this to sum all them up.


    How do you spot a hooker rep whore posing on a bike with a gun on a cell phone not yielding to uphill riders also with a dog off leash that's a newbie who's a d0uche that has an attitude?

    I can't help thinking I could spot such a person from space. Because of the shiny bike, if nothing else.

    I think it's funny that people in the General forum use to complain about all the "non-bike" threads. They'd jump into the thread and pitch a little fit. Now there's Off-Camber and we post up non-bike stuff here and we're all friendly. Oh, and what's going on back in General?

    As long as they don't bring the hate to the OC I'm okay with it.

    How's this

    When climbing, a dog blocks the trail, the owner approachs saying "Oh, don't worry Fido's friendly". Drops the bike nearby, their phone rings - takes the call, and ignores dog. Talks loudly about nothing, and you notice the noxious matching shorts/jersey, and wheel reflectors.

    Call ends, they babble about the latest-greatest carbon part, their amazing feats, and extensive e-biking, lectures on the right to carry, and then accuse you for not yielding trail to shackle their DH buzz.
    Still stunned by their insane azzholi-ness, he /she decides to piss on the trail right at your feet. Arrggh, damn Jackwagons.

    IMO, it doesn't matter how they restructure the forums, GD will always have the most hate.

    Meanwhile, OC FTW.

    OT, but,any of you guys hear Willie Nelson's new album? Quite a few songs with his son, Lukas.

    Exactly, OC is the most trouble free spot on the site. Besides that problem we had a couple weeks ago. Learned a lot more about members in here then in other spots on the site

    It's all good Big Terry, my red chiclet friend hit me twice in this forum,
    even came up with a very catchy phrase" Suck a dick".
