    Troll Strategy

    Don't Feed The Troll.

    Post new posts to bury the troll.

    Reply to other's worthwhile posts to bury the troll.

    Don't reply, it puts his post back on top and while we all know it isn't worth reading, the temptation is terrible! If you are like me, there is this tremendous fascination to see what he is going to say next, then I am consumed with in insatiable temptation to reply, I reply, then hate myself for a week for putting his post back on top! Sheez, if only I had a modicum of self control. As a middle-school teacher, you would think I would have had enough practice ignoring this kind of thing and have this down pat... LOL.

    Burying the troll. Great thread. Cheers.
    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    The poor guy who posted the "thrill bike" article didn't write the article, but he perhaps unknowingly started the toxic thread. I wrote a reply and then decided to delete. I was also enticed into some of the old Traildoc threads and some of his later incarnations. And then there is the ultimate Mike V. troll. It's just so tempting!

    I think ignoring the troll is best, but sometimes the most useful response is in the open. There are only mountain bikers reading on this forum. If we want awareness of bike issues to improve, we should respond on hippie turf or somewhere with a more general audience like a newspaper. This requires good behavior and logical arguments, which I think we do pretty well with.

    If you have a 5k plus for an ebike seems like you could afford one of these and make some trails....

    Oh wait I heard Rouge is working on e-trail tools, might be a little easier for you to use, but you get a better work out and it's better for the environment because you will eat less food than non etool users!
