Hey Brendan

Us whingers were just trying to point out the legal issues you might face if/when things stop being fun and someone gets hurt. I love bike racing and I only do it cos the money I pay gives me and the organisers a shed load of insurance if I hurt myself or someone else. Its not the racing per se I/we are against, just the implications for organisers/participants if things go wrong.

And Missy as a moderator should you be stirring the pot? Should you be taking the piss out of people who want to get a buzz out of racing but do it with some safety provisions in place? Do you wear a seatbelt, a bike helmet, look before you cross the road, or is that dull as well ????

if you have a problem with the way I conduct myself on these forums take it up with a moderator... Not me... Cause It doesn't work like that, I will not follow through on a complaint made about me... That would be stupid.

You are however attacking me for no particular reason, because I made one comment that didn't rest well with your cotton wool beliefs.

What's it cost to make a phone call these days?

Cyclocrossers? Are they one up, or one down the food chain from Crossdressers, or one and the same? :D

The answer is yes; sometimes they're one up, some times they're one down and some times they are crossdressers. Irregardless, they are above roadies, equal with trackies, but below mountain bikers. :)

usually three ride permits are 55 bucks.

we'll be subsidizing them and selling them for 30.

no, you can't get a one ride permit. unfortunately. sorry.

I dont think you should be wading in with these comments. If you have a sarcastic comment or don't like a comment from a mod then report the thread. Disrespecting mods are not seen in a good light.

Rob, I feel you have taken it in the wrong way, far to personally, that's your responsibility, and not mine. :wink: :)
Mods have a responsibility to set examples in online persona, usually its time and experience that teaches a moderator how to react, or not... The mod already proclaimed she would plain ignore any complaints or criticism directed toward her, so there was no point in a PM or report. Besides, i see my post as not sarcastic or disrespectful in any way, but a simple reminder. Only submitted because I've been there on site admin and moderation teams of LARGE forums myself, that experience gives you a perspective of seeing the big picture of a forums atmosphere, culture and development, and where it has problems in its admin resources. This forum is still taking baby steps, its evident in the Admins regular enforcement and dependency on its TOS, rather than letting things run there course and finding calm moderators that can PM a request for a post review, rather than being trigger happy.

'Tis the right of basic free speech, if you don't like it, please ignore it! - not all of us are craving attention here. :)

Steve I don't understand which nazi regime you come from but we here use things called 'smilies' (you may have seen them on the right hand side when making a post) to add mood or attitude to our posts.

There seems to be some inconsistency regarding short term racing licences. THey are administered by Cycling Australia , I believe, but are $44 for 3days, and $33 for 1 day in some states, while another state says 1 day licences are not available. I am not suggesting there is any complicity in this by Brendan, but I think the State cycling bodies and CA need to clarify the rules, and reasons for them.

thanks for your input, but really, i answered your question. if you think we're ripping you off, pm me and i'll explain the intricacies of dealing with CSV. this thread has been derailed enough already.

once again, pls keep this thread for comments about cyclocross, whether or not you're going to race it, and how awesome it is.

I get hot under the collar sometimes (or too often) but after a few days it all seems to be unimportant. Hopefully that does not indicate oncoming dementia!
Moderators are like Club Handicappers; I often think they are wrong, but I dont want the job. They will always be wrong in someones eyes, but thankfully they try to do a job for the rest of us.
I am totally happy with them right now, and that will last until my next unhappiness with them, and then I will get over it again. and...............................shall I continue?

Hey Missy, you do care, and that is why you replied. I am sorry, I should have put a few smileys in the last post, so here they are :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
How is life in Brunswick? I was a member of the Brunswick ACC in 65/66, with many happy memories from the time. I see Mr Alf Walker is still there. I soaked up all his words of wisdom back in my youth. What a great club. Have fun, and please keep us up to date with reports of your cycling adventures

Sorry Brenden but I'm really good at getting things off topic round here
