I used to be a regular in these parts. You may know me from movies such as: AZSF, September By The Sound, August By The Sound, Interbike, and many more.

Live through a monkey wrench in my way which pretty much endo'd me from riding on any kind of regular basis. But now, I'm slowly climbing back on the saddle. I'll do my best to be on the saddle and here a little more.

So, what did I miss in the past two or three years that I've been MIA? :D

Jerk Chicken got banned.

There was lots of consternation on the Beginner's Board.

Apparently bikers, hikers and equestrians don't always get along.

On a really serious note, Anthony S. passed away, there's a sticky here, what a loss.

I'm sure others will chime in with much more.

Hello poser newb

Welcome back.

What's happened in the past 3 years:

Some great passion posts.
Some tragic losses.
Some really great recovery news from members winning their fights with cancer.
Some drama.
Some new members getting upset.
Some people getting pissed about the way Francis and Gregg run the site.
Some great friendships were made.

Same sh!t as usual.

Welcome back Mellow - it has been a while. I'm kind of in the same boat as you in that I rarely have time to visit at length. I'll pop my head in every now and again to see what's up and that's about it usually. This past week however I've been popping my head in more than usual and have been checking daily. Maybe 'cause I'm riding less at present (weather). Nothing's changed really. You get some wicked posts and you get crappy ones as well. You get folks mad about nothing and screw turners trying to get a rise out of some others. It's all good. It's the same.

I did miss all events leading up to Jerk Chicken's "banning" however. What was that about? I'm curious. I've never understood this "banning" nonsense.

Welcome back MY - have not seen you since a CBC run on the shore a few years back. Let us know if you are in the area once we lose our snow.

There was a lot more drama than this:
- JC disagreed with an opinion of a sponsor.
- The sponsor asked that he be banned.
- There was some correspondence between JC And Gregg.
- JC was banned.

I don't understand banning either. Isn't that what the ignore feature is about?

I agree. I have opinions on both sides of this specific incident but it's over and done. It is what it is. I was answering Ska's question.

I'm sure that people who are still outraged over the decision will derail this thread but that isn't my intent.

Yeah, I'm very overdue for a trip back to the great white north. That is one of my 2010 resolutions. I talk to Tim all the time so I'll let him and you know when I'm heading back!

I've always been Mellow Yellow. I was "Trek-E" back when MTBR.com had just started.

Mellow, do you remember how to ride a bike? :p Nice of you to drop by.
I've ridden my road bike on limited occasions and I discovered I need a new saddle. Now I need to make sure the mountain bikes all work:D
