I would like to raise the possibility of banning the following issues from the site:

-spacers
-crank arm length

I'm open to any other suggestions.

kidding! :) ... but the whole spacer police thing and crank arm length topics are getting annoying.

Cheers,
Nick

Here's how it goes:

Get a 5x5 card and randomly write in each cell the following:

Shimano vs Campy
Poser
Fred
Crank arm length
Spacers
What do I wear?
What is a century?
What size bike do I need?
Who has the better moniker?
Anything Litespeed
Litespeed vs anything else
Best bike for under $500?
Should I Shave my legs?
Any kind of flaming
What do you do for a living?
Best bike for under $1000?
Best bike period
Should I buy a $6000 bike?
Best bike for under $2000?
Best helmet?
Are kysriums worth the money?
Is Lance really that good?
Suvs
Any non cycling related topic
Sexist pictures & comments

And in the Freespace: PODIUMBOUNDdotCA

Now, whenever you see one of these, mark your bingo card. The first one to get 5 in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) needs post the following message: BULLSHIT

Have a great day you guys!!! You are the greatest!!!

Won't tell you anymore details because I won't the wrath it would cause.
Suggest to the poster ...Humma Hah

... that they move the topic to "Components".

I sometimes wonder if there ought to be a forum for "fashion" where the folks who more concerned with the speed of their clothes than the the speed their legs can push them can discuss the color of their jerseys.

Ever wonder why these messages get so many reads, if it is so obviously not meant for anyone else? LOL!

It is, after all, a public forum. Thusly, if you wish to talk to someone in private, perhaps you should use the telephone.

there's no porn allowed. If we ban the touchy topics like Shimano vs. Campy, Alu vs. CF vs. Ti vs. Steel, spacer and seat height, compact geometory, KOPS, crank arms, wheel aero dynamics vs. weight, brand vs. brand, exact fit vs. adequate fit, Italian vs. American vs. Asian, head phones while riding, Litespeed and SUVs amongst other things, we're gonna look like the city in Demolition man.

Some evil people even want others to search the archives before they ask a question. If we did that then this place would look like the TdF board does for 11 months of the year.

Bring on the mud slinging and let's get it on!
