    what happens all the weird numbers by my name if i post a picture of poo?

    assuming it's a good one of course?
    if these numbers turn red or blue do the cubes change shapes or animate themselves?
    is it possible to export my stats to a CV format?
    if i am powerful in the east will my abilities allow me to heal lesser posters in other regions?
    when i masturbate while logged in do puppies still die?

    for now. that is all.
    we're making a garden.

    This sucker is only at two pages. Somewhere after it hits three pages someone will post something that tips the scales into the locked zone.

    a more balanced approach needs to be taken. not a totalitarian one...
    More communication means more confrontation.

    i believe

    you must relax and take more balanced approach. totalitarianism will not yield any good and may and will earn you some negative rep. not to mention that you will miss on some great sap collection pics...

    in this case - ignorance is a bliss, that is: ignoring crap - will go a long way.

    Speaking of ignoring stuff, I'm really liking the ignore list feature. Enduramil is right. Now if only the forum software could ignore the text posted by an ignore person when someone else quotes it...

    I vote for a "Same Old Argument" thread where Circlip can merge any posts or threads that degrade into the same old argument. It would probably get to several hundred pages and be unreadable after the first three.

    Why don't all you crusty buggers settle your differences on the trail.
    Every thread turns into little hissy fits. It's embarrassing to think what other regions reading eastern Canada posts thinks of us riders
    Keep riding till only one is left standing , let natural selection decide.

    Take it one step further -> It's embarrassing to think what other regions within Eastern Canada think of this. There are 5 other provinces in this forum, but you wouldn't be able to tell based on the posts.

    If the embarrassment is too much for you then you should quit communicating. Like I wrote before, more communication is going to mean more confrontation.

    Besides, you've written your fair share of complaints haven't ya! (still at it I see)

    If you were to go back and review most of my posts , you'll see that the majority of " my complaints " are the fact that no one seems to get along.
    Am I wrong on this point ??
    How many posts have I mentioned
    " that everyone needs to lighten up ?
    I'm on this forum because mountain biking is my passion and I assumed it was for others on this site as well.
    Anyone who wants to respond to this post , please use this following quote

    "I (fill in your name ) am right , crash& bern is wrong".

    There , happy ? I'm off to do trail maintenance for a weekend ride.
    Have a good season everybody !!!
    Cheers,

    Hah, well happy trails and unless ray is your alter-e-ego you don't need to worry about those particular comments.

    People here have lots of mtb passion, hence the vigorous discussion(s)!

    I wasn't complaining, just agreeing with an observation C&B made.... you know, trying to bridge the gap, find common ground, mend bridges, etc....

    Congrats on offending C&B. He had your back before. And now? Not so sure....

    I may not agree with SS and C&B on many things, but I have to give them credit, they make an effort to keep the conversation civil and they try to argue their points without resorting to juvenile taunts. You: not so much.

    I'm not going to quit communicating, but I am going to stop conversing with you. It's like that old saying about wrestling with a pig in the mud.... You know the one I'm referring to.

    For now, I think I'll follow C&B's lead and go for a ride. Happy trails. And congratulations:

    Boy Ray, you just can't seem to stop trying to get in the last word and reproach others for voicing their view.

    You've got pouting down pat I must say and what exactly are you soo upset about? People complaining about Albion hills? People who have ideas other than yours who aren't won over by some pouting? Your idea that you can communicate with other people by ceasing to converse only implies one thing.

    Look, here is some stupid meme about you too.

    See ya on the trails. I'll be sure to bring some Kleenex, just in case you break down.

    Sometimes I have difficulty believing that people are serious when they ask me why I lock certain threads.
