What if....
« on: September 23, 2009, 09:01:32 AM »
What if we didn't have mods trying there best to keep this forum on track and out of the gutter?

What if us common folk were able to start our own sections?

What if the forum was a free for all?

Post your ideas on what new sections we'd have if the mods all went on a off site retreat to decompress from some of the madness that goes on here.


My first section would be "Platform pedal persuasion"

The description would read as follows: This would be a section for us platform guys to talk amongst ourselves free of discrimination like being spit on, laughed at, having our dedication to the sport questioned, people throwing Big Gulps on us as the drive by yelling "get some clipless you loser!", gate attendant charging us an extra dollar to get in Alafia, having great trail side conversations come to an abrupt close once they notice you're not clipped in, being forced to ride at the back of the pack on group trips, segregated camping section at FTF, constant lectures on the benefits of clipless, emails,texts,Tweets, instant messages,and smoke signals that go ignored by the elite, etc.
