instead of trying to be FLASH.

im tired of all the verbal ping-pong as it only ever escalates into nastiness and disservice to the word "discussion".

Maybe instead of getting the entire board to change to your liking you should find a kinder, gentler cyberspace. One of these options is a whole lot more likely to actually happen - not that we shouldn't all try to be nicer to each other. However, you have to realize that the board serves a function in it's current form be it: soapbox; advertising medium; pissing contest; agression outlet; debate center; or conduit of useful and bogus opinions. Occasionally it gets all messed up when people introduce fact and logic, but it usually doesn't last too long. It's all part of human nature in the 21st century and organization behavior which is failry predictable if you've studied it. It would be easier to get General Motors to change or Amtrak to run on time. If you want people to be nice to you personally then use a feminine handle - several grouches will gush all over you, but not me.

What's with the "furin" link - you selling something, like the truth or salvation? If so, for how much?

BTW - Try not to take it too seriously all the time and recognize when people are pulling your chain. ;-)
Pulling my Chain ?small gear masher

So if my chain is being pulled how often sould my chain be replaced?
What tools will I need to perform this?
What lube sould I be using (Pedros, White lighting, Finish Line, WD40, Motor oil) ?
Oh now you have me all worried.
Are you happy now?
First drill holes in your chain to lighten it... ;o) -NMTig

you the man grz...dupe

i was actually pulling a bit of leg.

no im not selling anything.

but if you have "flash" loaded on your 'puter and clicked on the part of the link that says "click to play flash" then you would see the beauty of it all.

maybe i was being too cryptic but i just knew that a topic like "you should all be nicer to each other...." would attract some attention. it was only a veil to post something that has no relation whatsoever to cycling in general but i thought some would like it.

you are still the original grouch and the best because you have a soft center underneath it all. and you are right i could do me with one of them "feminine handle's". ooooh!

i have to unequivocally admit that your persistence in cutting the wheat from the chaff on some of the first posts i had read on this site is what made it all the more interesting.

respect you!
uh, grzy does NOT have a soft side. Now apologize.bill

these boards are like a crowded, noisy, bar room with many conversations going on at the same time. Some serious, most frivolous and many full of sh!t. Most everyone is in some state of intoxication which loosens the reigns a bit. Personally I like that atmosphere (minus the smoke). That's probably why I stay on this board, and others. We can all take ourselves too seriously. BTW, click on the link on that "furin" site, you'll like it.
That's great, loved itMel Erickson
