Out of curiousity, I went for a brief tour of a few of the other MTBR regional forums. Let's just say that they were a bit more "conservative", to say the least. Perhaps this is a result of the fact that we don't have a moderator assigned to our forum, as do most of the others. Hopefully we are coming full circle here amongst our diverse personalities so that we may continue to enjoy our cozy little enclave in its current pristine, unmoderated state.

This isn't meant to say that the Eastern forum is unequivocally superior, only that I appreciate the opportunity to share a few giggles with all of you in a way that in all likelihood would be seen as inappropriate on some or all of the other regional forums. Without this abilty to roam freely teh interwebz would be something of an empty container IMHO.

Thank you.

well...

I think alot of us that do joke in what you defined is "inappropriate" kinda way, know eachother outside this forum and have respect for eachother...

nothing like a little giggle to pass the time... sometimes I feel like we are in highschool throwing paper planes at eachother.:D

I will admit that I have been OTT a few times... that said, I would totally be fine with not being silly.

then sometimes I think the world is too serious, not Serious my friend... but seriously...

if you the knew the gong show of people I work with, you would think that the Eastern forum is tame in comparison. Sometimes I am embarrassed to be working with the majority of them!:p

I've always hated the moderated version of these forums. I prefer the days when you could almost anonymously post. We've lost a lot of good posters over the years because of delicate flowers complaining to mods and admins. I'd much prefer if the delicate flowers just wilted and died.

Anonymous forums are entertaining, for sure, but end up very weird. People feel free to be SO nasty that nice posts get jumped all over.

Winter's coming. Perhaps I should wilt and die now!

Must admit - it has been an entertaining week!

moderation/forum works best with a few very simple rules:

-no spam
-no porn/gross (a little bit o-la-la is ok, but you know what i mean)
-no outings (phone #'s, addy's, names, work, etc)
-no hate

not really that complicated and sticky it so everyone knows the rules...

though i think you should be allowed to swear like a sailor...

I've been moderating this forum, secretly, for years - using underhanded techniques. Violators of my "reasonable" code of ethics may have noticed their door handles, or shiny rims, slightly sticky or smelling of urine. To those getting sticky fingers or having to frequent the car wash too often - "TONE IT DOWN!"

explains why you hang out here more than one would expect from the "north shore" guy...

not sure which gaping hole

you are talking about, but I'll take your word for it. You have shown acceptable level of investigative ability to have earned my trust... I think.

Well, he used to have a VP Free and a Yeti all mountain bike. According to my sources he sold them for some carpentry work and a 24hrs ability of Jack Bauer.
