Trouble
« on: April 08, 2008, 12:36:55 PM »
Darrin has told me that I purposely antagonize people and that I go on the shout box as a guest and try to start trouble. Well--I am sorry if I ever antagonize people, that would never be my intent. I do joke a lot as i have stated many times and many people told me to keep it up because they knew it was all in good fun. But I suppose I will let up on the humor because i do not ever want to offend people.

Now about the shout box thing--I have never been on it and don't even know how to use it--falsely accused.

Some threads and responses are seems to be too personal.

People needs to be aware the general purpose of a biking forum - exchange of views related to mountain biking (roadies are allowed too). Don't take things too personally and don't hit too personal of a note. If you must send a pm or talk to them in the trailhead no reason to spill everything all over the place.

Chill guys, we are suppose to be laid back cool breed of people who loves dirt more than the comfy couch.

People don't appreciate sarcasm, it is truly an art.  :(

I ain't upset with anyone--I just want to make sure I don't upset other people. I mean somehow I got like 10 smites yesterday. I guess from this shout box incident that I know nothing about.  So my point is to let you guys know that I ain't registering as a guest and trying to start something--I do that under my own name!! ;D Just kidding.

I don't mind smites, I don't mind if people call me out on everything but at the same time I don't believe in trying to offend people on purpose. Now I admit that sometimes I will say something on here that I believe to be true--like the riding the soaked trails thing at Squiggy while normally telling others not to--but to me that was a truth and truth doesn't cause trouble it exposes it.

I think I will just stick to personal encounters with you guys out at the trails--then there will be no mistakes about my intentions.

I think you should keep doing what you do. The boards were not the same without you.  ;)

Ok, I made another mistake--I shouldn't have mentioned Darrin's name in that post--sorry about that Darrin.

I am expecting hit men at my house now ;D

Let's just try and relax and not take this so seriously.

Noble, I agree that your sense of humor adds some fun to this, and that is all it really supposed to be.  If I have an issue with someone or with something they said, I send a private message or I move on. The only exception I have with that is when we are talking about something very serious, like an injury.

Smiting is silly. I really wish that function could be removed. I personally have never used it, and just won't.

Whoever made the statement in the shout box, was just stirring the pot. I have seen it before. If they don't want us to know who they are, then why should we pay attention?

I find it fun to poke the monkey or see a monkey poked! Some people just need to grow some thicker skin and give some back! I know it makes for a good read.

Humor I donít mind, but this kind of stuff is unnecessary and stupid. Bringing something to the board that was addressed in a PM is silly and does nothing for your cause. My skin is as is obviously thick since I am not the one who started THIS post. I donít care what anyone thinks of me or how many smites I get. But I would not try to publicly insult and humiliate anyone because I disagree with something they posted. So that being said, do what you wish and say what you will, but donít cry when you get smites or someone sends a PM to address what you said.

BTW, what flavor ice cream do you like?
