Slowman.....calling Slowman......

Dan, In light of what is happening in the world, and the divisions inherent in such actions, I recommend you censor all further threads having to do with the Iraqi conflict (and any others). This forum community comes from many backgrounds and from many sides of such issues. That being the case, these threads serve to divide an otherwise fairly united community of tri people. My politics don't have a damn thing to do with my tri-life. I'd hate to see people's opinions of each other degrade just because they don't agree with another's personal politics. If someone shows their ass regarding multisport that's one thing. Politics don't belong here. Sure I have the option not to open a particular thread, but there seem to be more and more of them lately and some start with outright trolling for reactions.

I agree and everone who is registered or wants to register should have to use a real name real address and maybe even a correct phone number,its real easy to be a ass when you know no one knows who you are,and this site has had its share of asses,starting to sound like SLOWBITCH

I disagree. I ignore most of the war discussion, but it is good to let us vent a bit. It is mostly respectful, though obviously not completely. I think the forum can survive this, but it is obviously Dan's call.

I am sure that there are forums where current events are the main topic,why do people come to a tri site to talk war??????Maybe we should talk about the latest in medical advances,or gardening,or even our jobs.Randall

TriBriGuy,

You couldn't have been more right about the war threads. Other (myself included) even tried stopping it, all to no avail. I've been watching that one grow for a while now and it is really starting to hit rock bottom.

It's really kind of sad actually that "adults" have resorted to such name calling.

It is entertaining though.

On that I 100% agree.

Dan site, Dans rules and if you dont like it why not follow Dans lead as in his Op-ed and simply not read it.

I have to be honest and say that while I am sure there are at least a couple of people that have taken it personally nothing that's been said here would possess me to persecute or take it further in person.

I'd have no problem with meeting anyone here. I dont think there would be any sort of meeting of minds beyond prehaps sharing a beer, I doubt that there is that much in common beyond that and tri but thats life, we tend to gravitate to those with common interests, values etc etc and this has just illustrated the diversity here and thats not such a bad thing in the end.

cant do it I'm boycotting Mexico, Germany, china from China and cutlery from SE Asia or Spain.

You can buy me a Fat Tire, Pete's or Sam Adams, no conflicts or boycotts necessary there. I'll also take a number one breakfast meal from McDonalds witha large coke.

On top of which someone else just accused me of living in the Weimar although of all the things I said I dont think that was a claim I ever made.

The Weimar comment was retracted. Perhaps I misread an earlier post.

F*ck em, I dont own one, real men ride real frames..........actually something that really does piss me off on a more serious note is the splines on a 105 BB are not the same as on an Ultegra.

Did you know that?

Also WTF is up with Asics discontinuing the MC plus?
