    Yeah, but only the swivel-eyed politically correct type, which I'm sure everyone will agree is the best type of loon.

    This place is fairly reasonable for an internet forum. If you want crazy then look at the 'Clinic' section of the Cyclingnews forum. It's like a cult where you have to believe that every cyclist dopes - the slightest dissent results in abuse and calls for a banning for being a troll.

    Jonathan Vaughters made the mistake of posting on there a few months back to explain that the only contact he'd had with Contador was to have dinner with him and he had good sources that he was clean. He then got a volley of abuse and was bombarded with accusations. He answered these accusations in detail and was then called a liar, hypocrite, fraud etc...

    Really, this place is quite pleasant and intelligent.

    ''Loons' are not restricted to zones. 'Care in the community' is a wonderful thing.

    Practically every cycling forum is the same. But at least the people tend to be pleasant about it.

    Aside from the swivel eyed loons of course.

    There are some real know it all idiots on there who burn anyone who disagree's with there bitter views. See the slagging off of fleeman posting his blood value's and cav's comments on ricco. They go on about the omerta and then slag off a rider when he speaks out! You just cannot win with some people. :roll:
    It’s the most beautiful sport in the world but it’s governed by ***ts who have turned it into a crock of ****.

    I gave up after a few days in the CN forum. The way they split off doping from pro racing was daft, sadly it is a component part of the sport these days. It's a bit like having a forum dedicated to 20th century European history and then not being allowed to mention the two great wars. And that was before the forum was colonised by many angry types. I know we can have a ding dong on this forum but it's really a far more relaxed place.

    They're always carping on and casting aspersions. Too many readers read between the line and rise to the bait, they get hooked on petty arguments.

    Hah. I am a bit of a fisherman. Trust me, the angling forums have far more to argue with.

    There are 100s of different styles techniques to compare and argue over. Competition fishing is like a hornet's nest. Then of course you've got access rights to argue over as well as individual club rules.

    From the outside it looks like all cyclists should just get along too. I mean, they all jujst want to ride a bike, no?

    Thank you for the Cyclingnews tip, finally I feel like I've found home :)

    Have to say I find this forum generally a pleasure to be on; there's the odd bit of stick that flies around, but that can always be taken the wrong way when it's not verbally transmitted eh, so no harm done really.

    I have cried with laughter at some posts and genuinely find the posts and you lot interesting on here and it’s nutter free compared to my work related forum!!

    But there is one thing I have to ad... bring back Cycling Report... I miss Bobby :lol:

    There's the age old shimano v abu garcia debate (with relative Yank newcomers Penn getting in on the act), sound familiar? :wink: Then there's proper traditional course anglers (roadies) v the equipment obsessed carp angler (MTBers). Sounds familiar really :lol: Not sure if any of the pro anglers are rumoured to be doping though although I'm pretty sure the French and Spanish are feeding their carp and catfish steroids.
