Of all things to post, you chose that for your first post? Don't quit your day job.

Wow - you are a co-moderator, and this is the way you greet people? Where are your manners? There's always the odd [email protected] that will say things like that, but I must way that I am surprised.

And your point is what? I do not see anyone claiming the item in your pic is "ideal" for anything.

Oh, and along came the cavalry to the rescue. My point is, (a free explanation for you and you only mr moderation man) that if you check your marketplace, and Ebay or any other bike classifieds these days, a good share of items that were never intended for ss use are being described as such since ss has become popular. The cassette picture below is called sarcasm.
I once read a sarcastic remark of your's that put down heavier riders. Something to the effect that now everyone, even the creampuff eaters, are getting in on the ss act, time to move on to something else. Remember? Surely you know about sarcasm. And a fair bit about being rude and ignorant as well. Dig that one out of the archives, see how it measures up against your regulations, and moderate it. Out.

Perhaps if you had lead into your "witty, sarcastic" comment with a little more explanation, it may have been humorous. :rolleyes:

Anyway, welcome to the forums. Please leave your biking shoes at the door and don't waste the bandwidth with worthless posts...

Yeah, he could have been a little more descriptive, but is that any reason to be rude?

Sadly, you seem to have all the diplomacy of Joey Buttafuco.
By the way, that was a sweet 3rd grade recess insult.. " a free explanation for you only mr. moderation man."
I think the resistance you're sensing around here is that we're used to people who post being nice, affable, genuine, and don't take themselves too seriously. You appear to miss wildly on each mark.
Now, please take your childish antics here...

Your ignorance is showing. I have NEVER made comments about creampuff eaters or heavier riders (and why would you assume some that eats pastry is heavy?).

I HAVE discussed Cream Puff RIDERS. The Cascade Cream Puff is a 100 mile mtb race that has a large singlespeed turnout.

Yes, I know about sarcasm. I also know that it does not work well on the web.

Come, come now, mod-man. Now I am becoming convinced that your'e related to Clinton or Nixon. Or the Padre even! Up to his ankles in BS, and that's because he dove in! :D I can see that some of the little boys are really like little boys. They can't resist reacting to everything AND having the last word. A single person can stir them into a state where they'll post signs, sayings, gang up, JUST LIKE LITTLE BOYS DO! I didn't know I had that kind of power over people! Wheeee! C'mon now, I know you want it!
Just watch now. Here they come. Shhhhh.

You seem to be the only one willing to have the maturity to explain that to me. Look at the way the rest ganged up like kids! So I decided to toy back with them. Can you believe that? Breaking every law their parents ever told them, and acting like children to boot.
Anyway, thanks. I can't see my stay lasting very long with this kind of stuff; and the moderators ringleading it!
Have a great week, and ride hard.

So you take a swipe at Shiggy for a comment he didn't make / you didn't understand / you read out of context, he explains himself, and you respond with this - a string of childish insults. If you're going to try to pass off an air of superiority around here, at least be able to defend your own comments rather than ignoring valid criticisms by others.

My 1st post is simply a fact, due to the increased popularity of SS. The very next post, and by a MODERATOR no less, takes a swipe at me with
"Of all things to post, you chose that for your first post? Don't quit your day job."
I asked if anyone had noticed, not if anyone would please be rude to me. I called him on it (rightfully asking where his manners were), and in true MTBR fashion, the "old boys network comes to the rescue; blind to the fact that I had sted a fact in my first post, was responded to by a moderator, then AGAIN by ANOTHER moderator who was equally as rude with:
"And your point is what? I do not see anyone claiming the item in your pic is "ideal" for anything."
Again, I asked if anyone had noticed (the amount of parts being sold as ideal for ss use), not if anyone would please be rude to me.
Zang seemed to have a reasonable response, but everyone else seems to want to play some sort of Salem Witch Trials thing. Sure, I can be rude too, but all I did was state an honest point. At no time did I ask anyone to tell me to snap back with rude comments. Somehow I am the bad guy in all of this. I posted no pictures until someone else started with the "clueless" suggestion box and others. Again, I did not start the "bar-raising". I was forewarned about this place, which is why I have never bothered to post. Imagine if store managers greeted new customers the way moderators welcome new persons here. This seems more like the Klan: cuz if'n yu don like it, ye kin git thu hell out. Move tu nuther contnint er sumpthin', cuz we like it just the way it is 'round heer.

Wow

Never in my short time lurking around here have I seen a totally harmless thread turn so ugly so quickly.

You are ALL showing your A$$.
