    Moderators In Here Please >>>>>>>>

    Can we please just delete the ABOMB and Parkway threads?! Seriously.

    Someone posts a thread promoting a race and it's deleted almost immediately, but endless completely off-topic garbage goes on endlessly.

    So your saying you object to these threads, huh. If you're objective you never, ever flippantly and on pointed personal criticism grounds shove back on a complaint; because that is NOT objectivity.

    There is a "Report Bad Post" icon beneath every poster's name and avatar. It looks like this <img src="https://forums.mtbr.com/images/buttons/report.gif"></img>. Maybe if you try using it the moderators will be alerted. Mods don't read every post nor are they required to read a post just because the subject calls them to it.

    I think we should delete this thread, it's off topic.

    What's off-topic about a local mountain bike club thread? Am I wrong that this is the Carolina mountain bike forum?

    I hate the "endless completely off-topic garbage goes on endlessly" stuff too. I mean it wastes so much of my time every day becuase someone holds a gun to my head and makes me read it. I have no choice to skip the thread and move on. It ruins my whole day reading all this crap.
    The gun to my head doesn't ruin my day just all the reading. ARGGGGG.

    I would like to point out at this time that 3 out of the 5 complaining that the A-BOMB thread is off topic have posted on that thread with statements that had nothing to do with biking. Just saying.......
