    Post Your RANTS:

    I'll start.
    Being Canadian my rant is with the ineptitude of the CBSA with processing shipments to Canada.

    One shipment (SRAM cassette, 2 tires) at the beginning of April - "processed through customs" in about 3 hours.

    Current Shipment (wheelset) - HASN'T been processed through customs yet - but it'll have been there 1 week today.

    I can only cringe when I even try to think of a workforce that works at the rate of "public" employees.

    The sad (and slightly embarassing) part is that I AM a "public" employee - though Municipal, not Federal.

    Don't ask me how I came to use pinterest.

    Probably borderline rant...I'm amused by the worn clichés and idiosyncrasies of the classified ad.

    "NEED GONE"
    "my loss is your gain"
    "will sacrafice"

    And my fave...
    "basically new" (when it's basically used)

    I hate it when people use more than one line to reply to a thread. I mean, really now, we get it! You answered the question. There's no need to keep blabbering. I mean, yeah, sometimes the situation does call for an answer that's more than a sentence long, but that doesn't mean you always have to write out a ****ing essay! Hell, you shouldn't ever have to write out an essay on a public forum. It's the internet! Nothing is that lengthy and involved anymore.

    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    Engish Spelling.

    I am a horrible speller, and the ruleless, exception based, f-d up system to spell correctly bothers me. I think my mental block toward spelling is simply based on the fact that it makes no logical sense. For example, phonetic isn't spelled fanetikly. Every rule has a few words that are like "F-you im crazy, i don't follow stupid word rules". The letter C is pointless, K and S can do everything C can, for the "ch" noise just add the k for Kh or make c only used for "ch". Mix in crazy foreign words to the batch and things get even more nuts.

    That is my rant.

    People who don't care to see what effects their actions have, yet point out others. Do as I say but not as I do bugs me.

    Not so rant worthy, and please, you like what you like, but girls without curves.

    people that play here but have never read this:
    Our mission is to help mtn. bike enthusiasts and foster a healthy community. The message boards are the core of our community. As a result, we would appreciate it if people read and abide by these guidelines.
    The Mtbr staff and volunteer moderators monitor the message boards, removing inappropriate content. The purpose of these guidelines is to explain what kind of messages are "inappropriate," and therefore will be deleted. We are explaining these guidelines beforehand, so if a message is removed everyone will understand why it was removed. In general, we err on the side of leaving messages up. The entire site is premised on sharing product information, so as one might imagine we are strong proponents of free speech. That being said, here are some specific reasons why we remove certain messages:



    1.) The message insults or degrades another member of the community.
    2.) The message contains profanity, offensive language, or racial epithets.
    3.) The message is an advertisement or spam.
    (NOTE: It has been an "unwritten" rule for us to let it slide, when people who buy an Mtbr Classified ad, post in the forums. However, due to the recent increase in these ads, we will now be locking these types of posts. And you may NOT post an ad in more than 1 forum. This courtesy (allowing paid classifieds users to post in the forums) does not extend to companies or business entities. ADDENDUM: Posting "What's It Worth" type threads may be considered spam and may be deleted at the moderator's discretion. Check our Classifieds section for similar bikes/parts for value.)
    4.) The message contains obscene or pornographic images/photos/text/videos.
    5.) The message promotes illegal activity (at our discretion).
    6.) The message has been posted to more than 2 boards. Posting the same message to multiple boards is spam, and all posts may be removed and the user may be banned. Please post to the most relevant board only, no more than 2.
    7.) The message is posted as "flame-bait" and is posted to incite flames and insults.

    ***Mtbr.com is an online resource for mountain bikers. We have a responsibility to the mountain biking community, to manufacturers, and to retailers. In the sharing of ideas, opinions, and experiences we hope to provide an open atmosphere where all parties can feel free to share their stories. While debates and differing opinions are all part of interfacing with many others, constant and continuous badgering and flaming of others will not be tolerated, and will be dealt with at the management's discretion. Users are free to share experiences, whether good or bad, positive or negative. You have your chance to speak your peace. However, do not attempt to abuse our site by making this a place for your own personal campaign against other forum members, manufacturers, or retailers nor as your own personal soapbox.***

    In addition to #3 above, please do not post Classified Ads/Want Ads/Trade Ads in the message board forum. Please post these in our Classifieds Section.

    Threads that are (or get) overtly political may be swiftly moderated and moved or removed if they spiral out of control into flaming, flame-bait or name calling. Also, PMs and email are private and posts containing the contents of PMs and emails will be deleted.

    Threads that keep getting "bumped" back to the top with "hey, bumping this post back up" type posts will be locked. If you do not have anything new/informative to add to the post, please do not attempt to "bump" a thread just to keep it at the top.

    A note about avatars and signature files: Inappropriate/obscene or distasteful avatars may be removed by us at any time. You may also be asked to change your avatar, should we deem the avatar to be inappropriate. Please do not post ads for bikes or parts in your forum signature, they are NOT allowed.

    Also, users registering multiple accounts and posing as different people is NOT allowed and one or all of your accounts may be banned without warning.

    Our classifieds section is primarily intended for individuals and not business entities. However, bike shops or other dealers may use the classifieds but they are not allowed to post in the forums (regardless of whether they link to an Mtbr classified ad or not).

    Unfortunately we must reserve the right to remove messages. However, we truly love this community, so we will only remove any given message if we judge that it's in the best interest of the community. Please feel free to ask questions or direct comments to us.

    'Choose my bike for me' threads. I believe they are currently top of the queue in at least 3 different forums.

    I hate it when people want their bike fixed over the interwebs and then get pissy when a suggestion doesn't work. Especially when they don't have a clue when it comes to which end of the tool to use. Put the smartphone down and take it to the LBS already.
