edited June 2012 in The bottom bracket
Some of you won't be aware but as a result of Vesterberg's locked 'Massive Cocks' thread, last night Jim453 dared to query that decision and put up a thread querying why it had been locked, especially as it was in the new 'freer' BB. I posted agreeing with him. This morning it was deleted and no explanation given.

The thread wasn't abusive but just a bit of fun and banter imho (have a read). Rick Chasey you either have a different sense of humour to the vast majority on here or have a very blinkered view as to what constitutes abuse. The fact that Jim453's thread was deleted with no explanation just makes a mockery of the whole situation. I'd be very surprised if MattC59 doesn't agree with me. Rick I'm sure your heart is in the right place but you're going to ruin this forum.

    I have to agree Aggie - a locked thread with an explanation - which to be fair rick does do (offer an explanation that is) - but deletion without reason antagonistic.

    I think the problem is mainly this - in the communting section a while back Rick posted saying that he hardly ever visits/visited cake stop as in his opinion it had 'gone downhill'. I often like to have a laugh in the crud catcher (MTB) and for a first time vister there you would probably be shocked, but the CC is self moderating, it has it's own tone. i doubt whether someone who hardly ever visited cake stop, and spends a lot of time in communting and pro race would catch the tone or perhaps even be aware of it.

    The general tone now seems to be to treat all users as children - jim hit the nail on the head when he said was the action of the mods really to push long time posters and BR supporters off the boards. All things considered it is trivial to the nth degree but like you suggest if someone cant understand banter, and thereby classify you as persona non grata - thats a bit more questionable. It does need resolving - if only by way of an email to explain why the thread was deleted.

    And consistently claim to not being able to/allowed to proactively moderate and thus relying on the report function. But when moderation does occur it's behind invisible logins and post editing stamped ADMIN.

    Something doesn't add up....

    Instead of fannying around with new threads to appease the commuting cunts I wish they'd release a smartphone friendly forum.

    If low rate 2 bit porn sites (you know the ones aggie) can be mobile friendly why can't this site be??

    Maybe he didn't like being referred to as a knight in shining armour, (as I called him) and then deleting any thread that even has a whiff of two people having a difference of opinion, coming to the rescue of us poor offended gentle souls. As I said in the thread by Jim453, it is getting ridiculous. Maybe 'banter' translates as 'step outside' in Dutch!

    Oh believe me, you can!! Just maybe not in the typing sense...

    I think we ought to have a free for all.

    Which forum members, when you see on-line do you think to yourself "Oh (insert your own deity), he/she is on-line" I'm either going to ignore or...

    There are some people who I know I can have a real laugh with, some posts I just dive in, some I don't post on their threads because I know that there is just that little bit of me that thinks there's a tad of antagonism waiting to go off.

    I'll start.

    Aggie. Humourous and I've now taken his posts in the way to which they were intended.

    Mattc. FAF, has stripey lawns. Have a lot of time for Matt.

    Jim453, We have crossed words but I think, not to bad, but still gets my goat and knows it and riles me.

    Flash, Helped me out as I did him. (Remember Jim??).

    Vesterberg, Still trying to work out, not sure why.

    Gizmodo, ILYTH :wink:

    Pinarello001, Not my kind of "suit" I'm asthmatic! Could be fun if you're a "gasper" though!

    I've actually realised, (it takes time, I'm female), that this could be an "Airing" of who pissed of who and why!

    Bet it won't be though.

    Come on Guys lets be honest with one another, Some of us are being a bit antagonistic just to see how far we can push things.

    Even before this section opened and it sat like a tantalising carrot on the bottom of the board we were all running bets on who could be the first to post and get banned. and well done that particular badge of Honour seems to have gone to Vesterburg.

    I m just P*ssed because my money was on Aggie or Cleat.

    I do however feel that having opened a new section specifically designed to avoid causing offence to others who wonder into "Cake stop" of old claiming outrage, which you have to log on to even have access to, then its a bit counter productive and provacative to start policing it to this extent.

    We are all (I think) adults, The internet is not private, its a public place and I am sure we are all aware of the responsibilities and limitations on free speech that we have in not causing others offence, its the same as the world at large.

    Whats getting my Goat though is that unlike the World at large where you can unconsciously be exposed to things that may offend you without being able to do anything about it. On here you have to Login and put yourself in a position to be offended. And if you do that than more fool you.

    As I ve kept saying Aint Rick Chasey got a new bike , surely he's got better things to be doing this Weekend

    I did not think Vesterberg was being rude or provocative. I just assumed he had seen the two people naked and wanted to share. Strange but if that is was floats his boat, so be it. :|:)

    The thread I've referred to though is hardly a lockable one due to abuse though is it? Who was abused, certainly not me. Calling me a 'big c0ck' and assuming that will offend me is laughable in the extreme. So, assuming MattC59 wasn't offended and didn't report it, why lock it - nobody was abused.

    PS. How come I can write censored but when I wrote c0ck in it's correct form it became fool. That needs to be sorted as well :lol:

    I'll be honest. I have no idea what you lot are on about.

    There's more than one mod.

    I've been out riding all weekend and trying to get my landlord to re do our bathroom (which is now happening, you'll be pleased to know).

    Did 130 odd km today to with a club to properly inaugurate my new bike after almost being blown away by the wind yesterday. Can't quite believe how good it is! Outstanding. Also surprised how well commuting hard into work every day worked in giving me a strong base fitness.

    Anyway, Holland are on their way out so i'll get back to that.

    Be nice to all the mods (as well as each other) and don't take the p!ss or it's all going to end in tears.

    If it wasn't you then I apologise to you, but my point stands to whom ever deleted the thread, unless of course there was a post which caused deletion after I wrapped myself in clingfilm and went to bed.

    Please for an unknown deities sake, either let "The Bottom Bracket" allow the same as the CC or not. Make up your minds mods. (And I don't mean those who wear the real cool Parkas) :evil:

    Don't start that again! Didn't all of this nonsense kick off because DDD asked why he couldn't swear but pictures of fat bottomed girls were allowed?
    As a result of that question the forums (fora?) could all have to be moved and renamed again.

    And by telling everyone and getting so excited about it means that either a)she'll be on the blob or b)you'll walk in on her servicing José the bar man.
