It's pretty easy to stay in the thread, honestly. Not sure what you mean by head down. Just uh, follow those couple simple rules. Easy enough.
Well then, if that is the case, accept my sincere apologies. Somehow I must be mistaken. I could've worded my post better, to be sure.

what is so misleading about following the rule in the title of the thread
I'd really rather not rehash the dead horse, but a seemingly honest question deserves an honest answer.
Nothing. It's really that simple. I'm not arguing that; I agree with that. Of course it could be problematic as you normally can't know if it's their own bike, but for the sake of discussion that works and is easy enough. In the title, on the first page (that is seldom read), hopefully people get it.
My issue, as many have seconded, is with the general rules/operations. There's lots of newer people on pb... regardless of our feelings towards them, they would be valuable assets for trail advocacy. Never mind that we should be kind to our fellows anyways. But I digress. From my experience, the majority of the time, whenever someone errs like that, they're attacked/banned without warning or chance for repentance or restitution. Those rules both state and imply that it's an easy-going thread, follow the rules and you'll be fine. The reality I've observed is quite different. I've seen several people instantly banned and personally attacked, mocked, ridiculed insulted and generally harassed on a moment's whim, whether Sherb didn't like the grips, face, or grammar. Often no rules were violated. Ironically this is one of the least inclusive threads I've seen. If you want to keep everyone else out, well, I apparently have little say in that lol, but the least you could do is acknowledge and publicize that fact, rather than falsely advertising and then being upset. When that occurs, it is correct to say that title post is disingenuous. I'd love to be proven wrong, retract my statement, and apologize. I'm merely trying to help those who don't know better, and I'm frankly concerned why that could be considered villianous. Apologies for the long post. Further apologies if I have ever unwittingly broken a rule, but afaik I haven't. I hope your weather is as fair as mine, and that you have a great day. Smile

Please stop dragging the drama out; we're here for bikes, not for the rhetoric or your position on how a thread's run. Thanks.

Don't make me actually moderate this thread or I will turn this car around, I swear to god.

If there's an issue, take it to pm. If there's a big issue, pm @comacruz nonstop until he responds.

Seriously though, don't bring dirt into a thread.

I've had this PinkBike account since 2001. FWIW, I like this thread's spicy attitude. Some places shouldn't be democracies, and whips need to be cracked. It's a place to look at bikes. End. Of .Story. Apologies I don't have a pic to share right now though, my bad! as you were.

It has turbine cranks, a single crown fork, a dropper post and most importantly, a bottle cage. Just another long travel enduro bike.
